A Long Road to Fortune
Daniel Vanderpol is a very recurring character in A Long Road to Fortune.

General InformationEdit

Daniel hails from a bad neighborhood in the Dominican Republic. He and his family moved to Tecpan when Daniel himself was very young. In Tecpan, the family purchased a modest farm near the town of El Suchil. Daniel worked in the family's farm since fromm a very young age and did not have academic education while growing up.


Through unknown circumstances, Daniel's family perished during the first few weeks of the apocalypse and Daniel eventually found refuge within the marketplace.

Chapter 1Edit

Sometime later, Mr. Chet brought Ashton back to the marketplace along with him. Upon doing so, Daniel grabbed Ashton and gave him a poor welcome. Later that day, a herd of grosero broke its in way into the marketplace, slowly pouring into the marketplace. Daniel and Ashton were forced to team up and be the sole protectors of the nort part of the marketplace. It was after witnessing the fact that Ashton rescued Max Gomes from imminent death that Daniel's respect for the boy started.

He later aided the former and Sgt. Mendoza's squad in clearing the soccer field, but was kidnapped by Gustavo Texta's faction. Luckily for Daniel, Mr. Chet managed to rescue them and himself. In Gustavo's rebuttal, Daniel awaited the assault from the inside of the marketplace, ready to attack any members of the opposing faction who found their way in. Fortunetly, the conflict was resolved without blood shed.

A week later, Daniel stands guard next to main entrance to the marketplace, tasked to keep an eye on who leaves and enters the marketplace. Daniel was present when Liza decided to leave the marketplace, but chose to not ask her what exactly she planned to do, knowing it was none of his business.


Daniel is the silent giant of the marketplace. He is very observant, serious, and streetwise, but also be distrusting of some of the people around him. He is one of the primary defenders of the marketplace.
