"I used to be a bad seed. Mad at the world for kicking me in the teeth. Felt it was only fair to kick it back. But my grandparents changed all that. They took me hunting, fishing, taught me to say, "Yes, sir," "No, sir." They loved me enough to impose rules. You're gonna learn my rules, 46592."
―Dale Holiday to Alisa Jones[src]

Dale Holiday was a correction captain who operated and coordinated the guardsmen during Alisa Jones' imprisonment.

"What happened to your arms?"

Off-Duty Routines

"You attacked me! You attacked me in my home! Self-defense!"
―Dale Holiday to Jessica Jones[src]
Holiday walked home with a baggage in hand. Briefly inside, he changed into his gymwear and began to travel elsewhere. Later, he returned once more and attempted to sneak and subdue Jessica Jones. Despite using pepper spray and a nightstick, he was disarmed and unintentionally killed by his own weapon, his body collapsing to the floor and left bleeding out through his left side.[3]

In an effort to cover her tracks, Jones took Holiday's body to the rooftop and staged to appear as though he willingly committed suicide.[4]


"Dale inherited more than his grandparents' house. He also got their love of trophies. If these were suicides, they wouldn't be on his wall. He likes to hunt."
Jessica Jones[src]
