[edit] Biography

Little is known about Daniel Pinkerton outside of the Uncharted series, although it is known that he is an American crimelord living in Jakarta, Indonesia. A wealthy man, Pinkerton owns a mansion in Indonesia and has a small army of henchmen at his disposal.[1]

[edit] Uncharted: Eye of Indra

In June 2006,[2] Pinkerton hires treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake to track down the Eye of Indra artefact. Pinkerton has already collected two of the three Treasures of Indra - the Path of Indra and the Wrath of Indra - but the Eye of Indra has eluded Pinkerton for some time. Pinkerton then sends Nate away to take on the errand - but not before informing him of the state of the last person who failed Pinkerton.[1]

Unbeknownst to Pinkerton, as Nate begins studying documents related to the Eye of Indra, he meets local bar owner Rika, who turns out to be the sister of Nate's old acquaintance Eddy Raja. Together, the three make the decision to steal the artefact from Pinkerton, as Nate has discovered that the Eye of Indra is hidden within another one of the Treasures of Indra in Pinkerton's safe.[1]

Nate and Eddy are able to storm Pinkerton's mansion after blowing up the cars outside of the estate to cause a distraction. However, they are unable to access Pinkerton's safe, and the crimelord and his remaining henchmen soon catch up to them. Pinkerton captures Nate and Eddy and then proceeds to torture them.[1]

Pinkerton's early torture is fruitless, as neither Nate nor Eddy give up any information - that is, until Pinkerton reveals that his henchmen have also captured Rika. Pinkerton orders Rika to be brought out before Nate and Eddy, and at this point Nate caves as he tells Pinkerton that the Eye of Indra is in his safe. However, after Pinkerton has retrieved the artefact, Rika subdues the henchman holding her and then shoots Pinkerton in the chest using Eddy's Golden Gun.[1]

After Rika has untied Nate and Eddy, the three stand above the wounded Pinkerton, who declares that he is going to find Nate after this. Nate seems unmoved by this, but Rika then shoots Pinkerton again, and this shot proves fatal as it kills Pinkerton.[1]
