Daniel is a young African-American boy, with brown-skin, brown eyes and black stubby hair. He's commonly seen wearing
a black and white Eagles sports-vest, but has been seen wearing a variety of different outfits throughout the show, including a black, white and purple Eagles jacket. Daniel is seen through the basket ball games in a navy blue jacket with eagels on the front and Hayward on the back
Daniel is very misunderstood, and during Season 1 he acted as if he was better than everyone and pretended not to care about what people thought, but in reality, he really cares. He is very athletic, and in great physical shape. Originally, he was the Captain of the Eagles before the incident with the taser bar, and was considered a born leader. Daniel is also very competitive, and is constantly trying to win, even if it is not a competition. His competitive spirit is what drives him, and is part of what made him a good team captain.
Daniel and Brooke are together for the full season of season 1. Daniel makes his first appearance in the opening episode of; Pilot, where he's seen talking to a potential new Eagles member; Tall Tyler, who both he and Parker are trying to get through the exam, so that they can have him play for the Eagles basketball team. He gives Tyler the answers to the written entry exam, that Parker had managed to extract from the Raven's files. Later in the episode, Daniel comes face to face with Alex, who reveals himself to be a big fan of his.
Daniel however just ignores Alex, before he hears the exam announcement over the loud speaker, just as Hayley buts into the conversation to try and defend Alex. Daniel then just warns Alex that there were hundreds of applicants, but only one spot on the Eagles team. After this, Daniel is seen in the basketball court with Parker, who reports that Tyler hadn't managed to pass the written exam. Daniel reappears later, during Alex's physical exam, watching Alex shoot hoops, before offering to play Alex in a friendly one-on-one. During the match, Alex is easily able to out-play Daniel, so Daniel starts playing mind-games with Alex by bringing up his dead mother; Ryan. This causes Alex to freak-out, with Daniel then playing victim, in an attempt to get Alex thrown out.
After Alex and Hayley are accepted into the Greenhouse, Daniel asks Alex over to the Eagles clubhouse, after the annual opening ceremony. In the next episode; The Opening Challenge, Daniel can be seen cheering on Parker during an arm-wrestling match with Alex, to which Parker would eventually lose.
