|Political and military information
In his early years, Dahks became known as a keen tracker, adept at understanding and cataloguing the deepest wilds of the Kon’chomet jungles on Ruuht. During the course of his time there, he learned navigating the region’s most challenging scope of flora and fauna that would ultimately help teach Dahks the patience and focus they would later employ on important battlefronts throughout the War of Annihilation.
Swords of Sanghelios
Sometime prior to early 2560, Dahks was hired by the Swords of Sanghelios as a mercenary. By 2560, Dahks had been assigned as part of a joint Swords of Sanghelios and UNSC team under the purview of Fleetmaster Arkad Nar 'Kulul, one of the leaders of the Sanghelios home defense fleet. The Kig-Yar had developed a fondness for human-made sniper rifles, an interest with invited several discussions between Dahks and Trell, a Spartan of Fireteam Jorogumo.
When the Banished attacked Suban in early 2560, Dahks and the rest of the joint team participated in the moon's defense under the command of Fahl 'Nto and Orim 'Kasaan. Their task was to clear the Mines of Shua'ree of their Banished presence, a job which saw Dahks and Trell provide sniper overwatch while the others infiltrated the site. Initially, the assault was going well, with Dahks and Trell picking off targets as the rest worked their way through the mines. However, the appearance of Chieftain Ipso turned the tide of battle in the Banished's favor. As more Swords of Sanghelios warriors fell, Fahl 'Nto was bested and nearly killed by Ipso, only being saved by Spartan Glyyss's sacrifice. With the Swords of Sanghelios clearly fighting a losing battle, the joint team retreated to their Phantom to continue the fight another day.
