He possessed considerable skill as an inventor, designing a variety of clever gizmos and contraptions including a card-activated iron porticullis, a working elevator that could stop at any floor, and a slime block airship. These and other industrious ideas served him well as CEO of Dapton Solutions.
|"Why make a standard wooden door when you can take a few hours of resource gathering to make a massive redstone gate, complete with retracting iron bars?"|
Dap arrived in Blackbourne on 5E:184.
A member of the Dragon Hunters, he dwelled in the highlands northwest of their haven of Hunter's Home in a bunker known as the Dugout. His redstone-powered, keycard-activated iron gate guaranteed his safety against the aggression of factions such as the Dragonslayers, Scylfings, and Ouroboros.
He secured a treaty with fellow Atom, a fellow Dragon Hunter, via a loan of twelve diamonds in exchange for mutual defense and a promise of repayment with interest. Atom never delivered the two diamond blocks he owed.
Dap maintained a small plot in Hunter's Home which he stocked with supplies for the journey from the clan's Dragon Gate to the Dugout.
|"Hahahahahahaha! I shall become lord of the skies. All in the end shall fear me."|
Dap was the first citizen to sign up for the Pandora Secret Santa.
He had some degree of success in the Pandora Survivor competition, placing seventh in the Sixth Contest after surviving for 85 days and getting "on the board" in the Seventh Contest by finishing fourth with 113 days. He again took seventh in the Eighth Contest with 86 days.
Upon the invitation of its founder and mayor Jinx, he became a resident of Jinxion by developing a plot in its Visitor's Village. There, he erected a diorite and glass townhouse known as La Casa de Pwn. Gabault and Alec were his immediate neighbors.
On 5E:290, he colonized an island in Outer Pandora where he founded the town of Dapton. When the island was destroyed by the opening of Pandora's Box on 5E:319, Dap escaped to Sanctuary and he boarded the airship's inaugural voyage to Hallowmere and became one of the first to set foot on its soil.
|"I appreciate how tightly knit this community was, odd ends and all. Thank you, everybody. And to anybody that I didn't meet or know too well, you still have my thanks for what you've done for Dragonhollow's atmosphere."|
—Dap says farewell
Following a lengthy absence offworld, he returned to Dragonhollow on 7E:70 and turned a pre-existing ruined cabin into a modest plains cottage beyond the North Line of the Hammerlands Railway between Aperture and Windward.
Dap continued his engineering marvels, developing a safe way station at the end of the North Line for travelers to survive the night and another slimeship that lifted him to Venomere, which he successfully raided after many deaths. To offer his services and ingenuity to the community, he created a redstone business named Dapton Solutions.
He was a user of the faster-than-light communications network Discord.
Some years later, on 8E:186, he ventured to the refugee colony on Halfast, eager to catch up on what he'd missed during his long absence. He organized his activities in the desert outskirts and reincorporated Dapton Solutions, opening a satellite office in Greywatch Hold and doing contract work in Camillia. He enjoyed good relations with his nearest neighbor Zerg.
