Daniel Morrison (known to the CDN community as Close Protection) is a very, very Australian former C-Sec Special Response trooper now working as a private security contractor. A veteran of such Terminus outfits as BlackTorrent and Double Talon, Morrison has spent most of his adult life as a PSC. He is currently employed keeping the vitriolic Dietrich safe from harm--a rather difficult task, considering the latter's love of being as acerbic and foul-mouthed as possible.
Though described by sources as Muckracker and Albert Lowell as a "loyal puppy" to Dietrich, Dan considers his employment as the head of the information broker's close protection detail nothing more than a job to be approached with the utmost professionalism. Dietrich, on a professional level, is no different than the politicians and other persons of note his entire career as a PSC has been spent keeping safe. Thus Dan has no issue calling up his old BlackTorrent squad mates to escort Dietrich or do a bit of strong-arming for the man from time to time.
On a personal level, however, Dan despises Dietrich's abrasive matter and seeming lack of any real positive emotion. Though currently embroiled in the drama surrounding the resurgent Qoroq, Dan has made it clear in no uncertain terms that he intends to part ways with Dietrich when the whole affair is over. Though professionally and proficiently the epitome of a PSC, Dan has a more sensitive side, though few get to see it. He has for some time been pursuing a relationship with a C-Sec officer by the name of Allison Drew, and the two are by all accounts a happy couple. Once the situation with Dietrich's...actions had died down, Dan was rather graciously allowed to walk away by his former employer. He has now re-enlisted in C-Sec, and is currently working in Enforcement with his beloved Allie, though he hopes to rejoin the ranks of SR.
