Dominic was born in 2237. He was once the leader of a small squad of mercenaries, but after one too many near-death experiences, he retired with a small fortune of scavenged goods. He's been in Canterbury Commons for about 10 of his 40 years, and since arriving, his natural leadership has made him a very respected figure in the community. Ernest Roe handles the day-to-day negotiations and arrangements with the traders who pass through and keep the settlement functioning, while Dom handles any security or emergency concerns. Don's companion, Machete, is treated like a cross between a daughter and a soldier. He is trying to teach her to act as security for the settlement.
