Daniel Pinkerton is an American-born crime lord and antique collector basing himself in Indonesia.
He appears as a major character and the main antagonist of the 4-part Uncharted: Eye of Indra motion comics. While he never appeared during any of the series' single-player modes, Pinkerton appears as a playable multiplayer skin in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
Pinkerton's character is voiced by Fred Tatasciore, a reoccurring voice actor in the series.
Mr. Pinkerton has an obsession with the three treasures of Indra. He has the "Wrath of Indra" and the "Path of Indra". However, he does not have the priceless "Eye of Indra". He hired a finder, who gathered much information about the treasures, but then had a "running through" with him.
Events of Uncharted" Eye of Indra
After disposing of his previous finder, Pinkerton hired Nathan Drake to find the Eye of Indra, warning him not to cross him just like his previous finder. Drake, with the help of local bar owner Rika Raja, finds out that the amulet is hidden inside the "Path of Indra" (a statue of an elephant) in Mr. Pinkerton's safe.
With Pinkerton still not knowing about the Eye in his safe, Drake, Rika, and Eddy Raja planned to steal it from him but fail at first. Pinkerton tortures Nathan and Eddy by punching and electricuting them until they tell him where the Eye is. Nathan reveals where it is and Pinkerton finds it in his safe.
Right when he finds it, though, Rika shoots him. A wounded Pinkerton learns from Nathan that he planned to be caught and tortured by him so Rika could sneak in, shoot him, and take off with the Eye for themselves. Rika finally shoots him dead for good.
