Danny

Daniel Dyson

Daniel "Danny" Dyson, or simply "Dan"[1] born in 1988, is the son of Miles and Tarissa Dyson.

History

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

In 1995,[2] Danny witnessed Sarah Connor's assassination attempted on his father. Before she could kill him, however, John Connor and a T-800 stopped her. Ironically, it was Danny's disobedience of his parents by not going to bed and playing with a remote control truck that saved Miles when Danny bumped the truck into the former's leg, causing him to reach down to confiscate the toy, moving him out of range of Sarah's sniper shot. Afterward, Danny was taken to his room by John, so he would not see the Terminator remove the skin sheath over its arm and hear about the future war and how his father's work led to the emergence of Skynet and Judgment Day. It is not known what conversation or interaction John had with Danny during this brief time period.

Deviating timelines

Nuclear Twilight

The survivors of the nuclear holocaust on August 29, 1997 have stayed underground for years to get cover from the radiation. John and Sarah Connor, Tarissa Dyson with her children Danny and Blythe, former detective David Mossberg are watching the ruined city of Los Angeles. Years later, John Connor visits Danny out of despair and lack of motivation, as he sometimes does when things get rough. While they are gone, Samuel and Griffith want to check out what Danny really does behind closed doors. While they trust John Connor, they seem to doubt Danny because he is the son of Miles Dyson, who was responsible for Skynet's creation. On Danny's computer, they find out Skynet's sourcecode is on this computer and they suspect that Danny is working for the machines. Warchild
