Dan and his twin brother Drew were born in 1912. They both worked as tax accountants and had wives and children. They were also active members of their community, donating money to the Old Night Vale Opera House and creating a semi pro sand hockey league. Dan died of liver cancer in 1994, just a few weeks before his brother's death.
Some time between their birth in 1912 and their deaths in 1994, the brothers apparently left to fight in the Blood Space War. They returned from the front in the 21st century, and even though they were 107 in linear time, they looked like they were in their 20s. They tried to apply for jobs, but found that the law prohibits them to get employed, as they are dead.
