Ex Delta Force and CIA operative, Jack Dalton first met MacGyver when the two were teamed together for active service in Afghanistan with Jack being protection detail for MacGyver’s bomb squad duties. While initially they didn’t get along, over time and through the adversities and atrocities of war they became ‘brothers in arms’.
After their tour of duty ended, Jack followed MacGyver in joining the DXS where he joined MacGyver’s team.
Prior to meeting MacGyver, Jack dated Riley Davis‘ mother, Diane (Michael Michele). During that time, he and Riley became very close with Riley thinking of him as her father figure until he abruptly left them after having caught her real father Elwood (Billy Baldwin) beating on Diane and giving him a beating of his own. He later said he left because he was worried about what Riley would think of him if she found out.
