Daniel is the main protagonist of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Even so, there are flashbacks in the video game that reveal dark secrets about him. It turns out that in the past, he has sacrificed many people so that he can save himself. Guilty of his actions, he drank a potion that would erase the memories of everything except his name. This would explain the beginning of the game. However, Alexander of Brennenburg manipulates him into torturing and killing innocents for his plan to go back to his homeworld. After realizing of what a villain he is, Daniel resolves to kill Alexander.
