Uncharted: Golden AbyssEdit
Jason Dante was hired by archeologist Vincent Perez to help him with his research to find the lost city of gold called Quivira. However, after Perez mysteriously vanished, Dante was left in charge of the excavation and handed all of the research Perez had uncoverd for the past 20 years to warlord General Roberto Guerro, who was seeking the lost city of gold to help fund his revolutionary army. Dante contacted his old friend Nathan Drake to help with a dig site in Panama. Perez's granddaughter, Marisa Chase, knew Dante was untrustworthy and secretly formed a partnership with Nate. Guerro was upset with Dante for allowing Nate and Chase wander in the jungles of Panama and captured them and took them to his compound.
Chase escaped captivity and set the compound on fire to act as a diversion to rescue Nate from a nearby warehouse. Dante pleaded with Guerro that his partnership with Nate and Chase was a misunderstanding. The General gave Dante a second chance to redeem himself. Dante found Nate and Chase as they were about to escape the compound with the gold amulet Chase was keeping from Dante. Chase furiously shoved Dante into a river who was later recovered by Guerro and his soldiers.
A week later, Dante and Guerro followed Nate and Chase to an underground chamber near Perez's house. Inside the chamber, Dante found Nate and Chase and insulted Guerro without realizing that Guerro overheard him. Guerro abandoned Dante with Nate in the chamber while he took Chase captive. Dante and Nate reluctantly worked together to escape the chamber. Once outside, they witness Guerro and his men escape in trucks with Chase. Dante vows to hire a group of mercenaries to take on Guerro and his army so he can claim the gold treasure of Quivira for himself.
Days later, Dante lead his hired men into the jungles of Panama to assault Guerro's soldiers. As they battled, Dante and his merceanries reached the cavern leading to Quivira. Both of his men and Guerro's were thinning quickly. Dante reached the treasure vault containing the gold, already knowing that the gold was radioactive. Despite this, he still planned to sell the gold in the black market. Nate and Dante fought with Nate defeating Dante. Nate and Chase leave the injured Dante behind to die in the cavern as he yelled at Nate for always leaving empty handed. Chase detonated the explosives the Guerro's men had set up around the cavern, causing the place to cave in, killing Dante.
