Born in White Earth, Minnesota, Dart became a hunting guide while still only in his teens. His knowledge of the natural world and Native American lore was passed down from his father and grandfather. By the time he joined the Army, Dart was an expert tracker, and to his credentials added Airborne and Ranger training. He participated in dozens of classified reconnaissance missions and is believed to have at least two presidential awards locked away in a top secret vault in the Pentagon. Those who served with him suggest his tracking abilities come from some psychic abilities, though Dart credits his skill and patience.
On his first mission for the Joe team, Dart was sent into Sierra Gordo to assist Sierra Gordo in its battle against invaders from neighboring Sierra Muerte. The situation there become even more volatile and the team came under attack, with some Joes seriously injured. Dart had been in few battle situations and was shaken by the experience. He spent some time on "psych leave" to deal with the trauma and soon returned to duty, fighting Cobra forces that were drawn into an attack on a train guarded by the Joes, believing that Destro was being held prisoner onboard. After the Joes stopped a plot by Cobra to unleash the weapon known as the Tempest, and defeated a new threat, the Red Shadows, the military again disbanded the team.
One year later, the Joe team was reformed with a smaller roster of active members. Dart, like most former Joes, is a reserve member of the new team.
