Daniel W. Allard (2997 – 3069, aged 72 years) is a MechWarrior with the Kell Hounds. Dan, as he was more commonly known, steadily rose up the ranks of the unit, to full command of the unit after Morgan Kell retired from active command. The brother of Justin Allard and uncle of Kai Allard-Liao, Dan married Morgan's illegitimate daughter Megan Kell.
Originally piloting a Valkyrie, after its destruction he received a prototype Wolfhound which became Allard's signature 'Mech. Dan continued to pilot one despite rising to command of the Kell Hounds, until his death on Graceland in 3069 during combat against Clan Jade Falcon.
