Possible Opponents[]


A criminal operating under the name or alias of Nathan Steele, Dallas was once a mobster operating in Chicago, working on making his way up the criminal hierarchy job by job, climbing from a simple club bouncer to a reliable hitman. Eventually, he tried to play an ultimate job by turning two of Chicago’s biggest mobs against each other, resulting in plenty of deaths, police and mobster alike. The mob leaders had a hit on Steele, but he escaped into the depths of the criminal underworld and survived.

While in hiding underground, he ran a gun range while also performing hits against drugs dealers in an attempt to harm the Amercian drug trade. This continued for 10 years before Dallas suffered what Bain calls a “What am I doing with my life?” scenario and decided to find a criminal crew after stealing a weapons shipment. This was where he came across fellow Payday Gang members Wolf, Hoxton and Chains and, under Bain’s guidance, he became the natural leader of the gang, inspiring fear and criminal brilliance.
