Dass was a middle aged, married, and slightly overweight Colonial Militia recruit.
Before signing up as a recruit, Dass was a maglev engineer. He was described as patient but forceful, due to the fact that he had children: one boy and two girls. He was noted as being a little overweight, but due to his height, the weight was not as noticeable.
Battle of HarvestEdit
- Main article: Battle of Harvest
He was assigned as 1st Platoon's One-Alpha Squad leader, during the Battle of Harvest near Gladsheim. Dass proved himself to be a good leader, and gave advice to the other recruits during a training session or battle.
Later on during the battle, he boarded Tiara with the other volunteers. On the ship, an Unggoy named Guff wounded him with a bolt from a Plasma Pistol. When the Unggoy tried to kill Dass with a finishing shot, Staff Sergeant Avery Johnson rescued him from death and killed Guff. Dass then entered the container and successfully fled Harvest.
