Dane Rogers (inconsistently spelled Rodgers) was the leader of a movement called the Sons of Dane, which were active before and after the Great War.


Dane's goal was to become free from an oppressive government that did not accommodate the best interests of the common man, a goal he was willing to fight to the death for.[1] Dane prophesized that the group would be delivered from destruction when the world would inevitably be consumed in fire as a result of the Sino-American War.[2] Dane led the group's efforts to set up at an abandoned homestead on Interstate 63,[3] including the renovation of an old barn into a beer hall for them to party in.[4]

When the Great War struck on October 23, Dane and the Sons temporarily moved underground to survive the bombs and ensuing fallout, as they had planned to do in case of emergency.[5] One member, Clem, wanted to stay topside and promised that he would not mess with anything while the others were underground. Dane gave him permission to do so, but told Clem that if he fucked with the compound, he would kill Clem himself.[6] When all of the Sons emerged, they quickly realized that living in a post-nuclear world would not be easy, as food was harder to come by and fresh water had been tainted with radiation.[7]

One day, after a long night causing ruckus in the Beer Hall, a creature broke inside while most of the men were sleeping and attacked Jackson, grabbing him by the leg and swinging him against the wall, smashing his brains out in an instant. Dane put at least six bullets in the creature, though it was unfazed and managed to escape.[8]

About a week later, the Sons realized that the loud music and partying was attracting the creature's attention. Verne was playing music one night when Paulie Keith told him to shut it off. However, it was too late, as the creature pulled him through a window, never to be seen again.[9] Fed up, Dane decided that they had to track down the creature itself. He enlisted the help of Angie, "the best damn tracker in Appalachia," and they eventually found tracks that matched the creature. However, the trail soon ran cold, like the creature had vanished. Dane speculated that it was much more intelligent than they had realized.[10]

Not long after, Angie started playing her guitar around midnight. This attracted the creature once more, and although she put up a decent fight, she was no match and had her guts pulled out like a deer. The other members tried shooting at it, but the creature just ran off again. The surviving Sons began calling the creature the "Nightstalker" and Dane was determined to kill it before the rest of them turned into its food.[11]

The next time the Nightstalker struck, it killed two Sons in the Beer Hall - Clem and Beeks. By this point, there were only a handful of members left, including Dane himself. Growing desperate, he set up an automated alert asking for assistance from any experienced hunters in the area.[12] However, this call for help ultimately failed, and the Nightstalker slowly but surely exterminated the Sons of Dane. The Nightstalker, a unique wendigo, can be hunted down by the Vault 76 residents, still roaming the area years after the Sons of Dane were destroyed.[13]
