I survived this long by staying out of trouble, saving you may have changed all that.
Dan Hagar, to Nicholas Raine

Dan Hagar is a character featured in RAGE. He is the founder of the Hagar Settlement. He resides in the Ray's Oasis building.


He rescues Nicholas Raine from two Ghosts during the Prologue and provides him with the first sequence of quests. He is also responsible for giving Nicholas three weapons, namely the Settler Pistol, Sniper Rifle and Striker Crossbow.

When it's too dangerous for Nicholas to stay in the Hagar Settlement any time longer, Dan sends him to Wellspring. If the Nicholas returns to the Hagar Settlement after that, Garan will inform him that Dan Hagar has left on a trip to the town of Gunbarrel, along with Phallinx and Becky. From that point forward, Dan is never seen nor mentioned in the game again.

Prior to RAGE 2[]

He joined the war with the resistance during the Authority War, along with all his family. He later became Mayor of Wellspring. He eventually died of unknown causes, being succeeded by his daughter Loosum.


I'm Dan Hagar, and you're one lucky son of a bitch.

Dan, to Nicholas Raine
