REAL NAME: Sam Dee, also known as David Kelley

OCCUPATION: Covert operative and security specialist; Delta Green agent

EDUCATIONU.S. Navy Basic Underwater Demolition School (BUD/S)

SPECIALTIES: Physical security, infiltration, extraction

BACKGROUND: Sam Dee joined the Navy out of high school and was tapped for SEAL duty almost immediately due to his superior performance, motivation, discipline, and intelligence. He was a SEAL corpsman (medic) from 1981 to 1986, with a team that regularly conducted black operations in Central America against drug lords and communist revolutionaries. In 1987 he was detached to the NSA, which in turn detached him out as needed for its own operations and in support of other agencies, particulary in the Middle East as tensions escalated to warfare with Iraq.

In 1991 Dee was detached to the CIA, and underwent training at Camp Perry in order to better supplement the case officers he would be working with. He has worked with the CIA on various assignments, usually in protective work or physical infiltration and extraction (typically in an infiltration team with an electronic security expert). His cover changes from operation to operation, but typically he is listed as an officer of the CIA or another agency, with his history within the federal government classified. He earned a nickname, “Baron,” as a corpsman, but rarely hears it anymore and doesn’t like discussing it.

Dee has worked sporadically in Delta Green operations since 1986, when his SEAL team was involved in a particularly gruesome encounter with paranormal elements during a series of raids on a Colombian drug cartel. (Interested parties can read a full account in the Case History, “Blacker than Black.”) His first mission as a fully briefed Delta Green agent occurred in 1991. In 1997 he was involved (behind the scenes) in an ill-fated investigation into the activities of Amalgamated Bio-Carb, Incorporated; that case file, like too many others for Delta Green, remains open.

Appearance: Sam Dee is 5’10” tall at 175 lbs, broad-shouldered and strong-jawed with an athletic build. He is lean and tanned, but with a craggy face and broken nose that cannot quite be considered attractive. His short straight hair is dark brown, as are his deep-set eyes. His gaze is alert, constantly analyzing and appraising. He typically wears a forgettable grey Oxford business suit. He often carries a compact Sig-Sauer P-228 9mm handgun in a simple holster at his lower back, beneath his coat.
