During the Guild Wars, Dankin was assigned to control the captured town of Korsy and its starport. He fell victim to a scheme concocted between a fellow overseer, Aaron Pax, and a Confederate marine colonel, Javier Vanderspool. The latter impersonated an overseer named "Stokes" long enough to approach Dankin, shoot him dead and take his security officer hostage.
