Edin Dan is a Scout that could achieve incredible speeds for E-rank Regulars. He rested for some years on the 25th Floor, but was forced to continue climbing by Koon and, after joining Team Tangsooyook with Koon, he participated in the Workshop Battle on the 30th Floor. Formerly a member of Koon's previous team, Dan is currently part of Koon's support team.
During his ascension, his speed was such that he was never caught by a Lighthouse. As such, his talents have been sought by many Regulars, each offering to climb the Tower with him; however, he declined all requests and stopped climbing the Tower because he didn't like the system, choosing to become a hunter instead. He was also traumatised by the death of his past teammates, him being the only one to run away.
Appearance and Personality
He has long black hair that has been pulled back into a ponytail. He usually wears a plain orange vest over brown shirts.
Dan has been shown to be rather prideful in his abilities. When Novick announced the start of the ranking battle, he immediately joined in but was promptly defeated. As such, he was ranked last in Koon's team. Though he was made out to be a proud individual, he is determined and has a resolve to never become useless. He was first shown reluctant to join a team and climb the Tower, because of how people die and kill climbing it. Along with the fact that members of his new team betrayed them further adds to his argument.
Edin Dan was first seen when he walked into a cafe for a meeting with Koon Aguero Agnis. When Koon revealed that he wished to recruit Dan for his speed, Dan refused and said how he was tired of all the killing and deaths. Koon enticed him into a gamble; if Dan won then he would receive a valuable stone and if Koon won then Dan would have to join his team. Koon easily won and captured him in his Lighthouse. At Koon's base, Novick introduced himself as the Spear Bearer of the team. Novick warned Dan to not act rashly in front of the other group members. When Dan questioned Koon's motivations, Novick replies that there was a girl upstairs and to never imply that Koon and her were in a romantic relationship. Novick introduced him to the rest of the group and then set a battle to determine the rankings in the team. Dan was beaten up immediately and ranked last. Koon, later on, told them to act as a fence around Rachel and that he would reward them later on when he becomes the head of his family.
After locating the enemy, Dan and Ran faced two members of the enemy team. Dan asked Ran who he wanted to fight but Ran said he could take care of both of them. Hearing this, Dan left to go towards the enemy's cannon. He then deactivated the opponent team's cannons and in the process earned his team a victory. After the test, he was scolded by Koon for listening to Emile and to take such a huge risk. Dan apologised and left the room and met Rachel who compliments Dan on his speed and tells him that "It would be great if you could become my legs". Afterwards, she left, leaving Dan confused.FUG made it's move, Apple and Michael were about to kill him but Rachel intervened, telling them to stop since he didn't do anything wrong. She asked if Dan could be her legs, but this disgusted Dan, who told her to use her own legs since she already betrayed her teammates with them. In a rage, she stabbed Dan repeatedly.
When Koon returned to his base, he found Dan, who had his legs rendered useless by Rachel. It appears that before he went unconscious, he crawled over to Gyetang to try to help him. Team Tangsooyook brought him back to the hospital. Soon after, he woke up to find out he wouldn't be able to run anymore. Knowing that, he still wanted to go with Koon to the Workshop Battle to show he wouldn't give in to despair a second time.
He collaborated with Koon to deceive the attacking Regulars in order to steal their bullets.
During the conversation with Rak, he told him that he had already heard of him from Ran and also about the events during Koon Family war, which Koon Aguero Agnis was involved in, and his reasons for entering the Tower.
While disguised, he participated in the same round of the Plug event as Rak, with both of them emerging victorious.
Dan was seen listening to Koon's explanation of the upcoming Development Tournament.
Dan was summoned with the other Regulars to Wolhaiksong's ship.
After Beta and Ran had slain everyone on their carriages, Dan appeared with Novick and Xia Xia. Dan commented on how uncharacteristic it was for Koon to be late when Xia Xia received a message on her Lighthouse. Then, when the tournament occurring at Train City was posted Dan noted it would be a trap but Ran said that they would go anyway, to catch Cassano.
Eventually, they reached Train City and encountered an elevator. The group argued which floor to go to with Ran ending up pressing the "Entrance" floor out of irritation. On the Entrance floor, the group encountered a strange person guarding the gate and telling them to turn back. Dan then watched as Ran battled the person, who overwhelmed the latter, and then witnessed the arrival of Daniel Hatchid who explained who the strange person was and their function as guardian.
The next day at the tournament, Dan scouts Aka Williams and relays the information to Ran and Novick who then join him where he is. After Ran insults Aka and challenges him to a fight, Dan and Novick observe in shock when one of Aka's subordinates battles Ran instead and overwhelms the latter with relative ease. When the subordinate goads Ran into attacking, Dan fruitlessly attempts to calm Ran down.
Later on, when the Regulars are navigating the maze on their mission to stop Rachel's group, Dan uses his immense speed and Xia Xia's directions to locate and press the button needed to open the door to let them out of the maze.
When Ran got irritated and wanted to go back, Dan noted that he'd destroyed their only way back due to the other Regulars being noisy. After pressing onwards with the rest of the team, they then encountered a large Regular who demanded that Ran gave him his name. Dan then watched as Ran eventually overwhelmed and destroyed Hesse. Later, with the team being lead through the station by Chigrinsky, he helped to subdue the 'unnamed' Regulars that attacked them. In the 'unnamed' residence, he passed out due to the sedative in his drink but was saved by the timely arrival of Hatsu, Anak and Leesoo. Disposing of Chigrinsky's body, Dan then listened to Leesoo explain their current situation.
Powers and Abilities
Edin Dan is not well known as a combatant, and that is usually interpreted as strange for someone of such a supposed calibre to be recruited by Koon. However, Ran (the haughtiest yet strongest member of Koon's team) himself said that Dan's speed is unrivalled, making him a worthy ally. However, this speed does not translate into mobility in battle and his fighting abilities are still unknown. In his most recent showing, he was able to leap an incredible distance before smashing a Regular into the ground.
Extreme Speed: As a "Speeder", Dan is capable of accelerating to incredibly high speeds. When he does so, his feet create red-coloured, and more recently yellow-coloured, electric-like sparks. After Rachel stabbed his legs, he was no longer capable of doing so for a large while; however he slowly regained his ability to run to the point where he was able to run fast for short distances, though not as freely as he used to. In his most recent appearance, he is shown sprinting a fair distance at high speed and is mentioned as being the fastest member of his team.
