Daniels is a police officer for the New Orleans Police Department.
Daniels was present at the New Orleans Police Department Station when Brigid O'Reilly and Tyrone Johnson were brought into custody after being arrested. As they were unofficially detained in a storage room, Daniels was sent by James Connors to inform Lafayette guarding the prisoners that the police station was being put in lockup. Daniels was then instructed by Lafayette to watch the detainees while he left the room, as Daniels was unaware that Lafayette had nearly released them.
Daniels was then joined by Connors, who explained that he intended to frame Johnson so that people would believe that he had killed O'Reilly before being shot himself. Daniels helped taking the prisoners out of the police station, but the facility was attacked by Terrors, forcing Daniels to join in the effort to fight and stop the crazed individuals storming the police station.
