+ Like Clear Water: Dunn is an incredibly adaptable individual. While he is always happy to stick to a laid out plan set before him by a superior, he would never be the individual coming up with such plans. Rather, Dunn always prefers to be reactive, to take things as they come and run with them, to turn the situation to his advantage and work around things rather than anticipate them beforehand. Because of this, there are not many situations that arise which the man cannot work around.
+ Experience Trumps It All: For one of his age, Lachlan has had a breadth of experiences within the Mobile Infantry. Having enlisted at the age of eighteen, Dunn has undergone many different kinds of training, and survived a number of deployments against all types of enemies the United Citizen's Federation faces. This significant degree of experience along with his mechanical training and other activities at a younger age have ensured that he has experienced far more than many average individuals of his age.
+ Whatever Happens, Happens: Dunn rarely lets things get to him, able to shrug off insult, injury and even trauma and fear a great deal of the time. Though he can sometimes come across as fatalistic, Dunn is happy to accept the consequences of anything, good or bad, for what they are, and so it is rare for anything to put him down, discourage him or make him give up what he's doing. Even in the hardest of times, Dunn will keep moving forward.
- Not A Strategist: While Dunn is particularly adept at making his plans on the fly, constructing a major strategy or a long-term plan is something that has always eluded him. He has always functioned better when he has been able to react rather than anticipate. While this is not an issue for someone of his rank, it certainly reduces his chances of seeing any major promotion in the future.
- You're Gonna Carry That Weight: Dunn has very little regard for the future. Without any desire to worry over it, he is instead content to go from day to day and deployment from deployment. Largely, this focus on the present is part of a desire to ignore the past and has become the major source for some of the man's more fatalistic attitudes. In essence, Dunn believes the majority of his life has passed and is certain to end with the Mobile Infantry, so there is no real need to worry

Alice Vickers:


Dunn has come to respect Vickers to an immense degree. In Lachlan's eyes, the platoon commander is not only an incredibly capable leader, but has shown on multiple occasions that she cares significantly for the well-being of all of the MI, even those who have had tendencies to cause issues. This care combined with her capabilities as a strategist and commander have put complete confidence in her abilities at the forefront of Lachlan's mind. 


Vickers has, at times, caused some discomfort for Lachlan with praise he has believed to be unecessary, but he has appreciated her mentorship and her attitude in rewarding his work nonetheless. Lachlan believes there is a great deal he can learn from Vickers both as a member of the Mobile Infantry, but also generally as a person.


In short, Dunn would truly follow Vickers into hell without hesitation.




Eric Shepard:


So far, Dunn's interactions with Shepard have been limited, and he has not been able to get a measure of how Eric works in the field outside of the man's own words. He holds a respect for the length of Eric's career, and of the lack of desire or regards the man seems to hold towards the acquisition of higher rank. Simply put, Dunn finds it respectable that Eric is wholly satisfied in his position as a private first class, and simply devotes himself to being as good at that job as he can.


Outside of their professional relationship, Dunn finds Eric to be enjoyable if somewhat rowdy company, and is more than happy to relax and enjoy a conversation or sparring match with the man whenever the opportunity may arise.



Chiyuki Asahi:


Increasingly, Dunn has grown more and more concerned about Asahi, and the attitudes he exhibits regularly. Lachlan finds it especially draining to listen to Asahi's near-constant complaints regarding seemingly everything. Indeed, his concerns over Asahi have begun to extend beyond his own personal displasure with the man's complaints - Dunn has developed a genuine concern that should Asahi's attitude continue unchecked, the man could be at a serious risk of being fragged.


Lachlan hopes that with the proper assistance, mentoring and potentially, even friendship, Asahi might be able to improve his attitude, as Lachlan does believe there is a great deal of potential within the man. However, this remains to be seen.



Ffanci Jenkins:


Similarly to Shepard, Dunn has had limited opportunities to see how Ffanci operates on a drop, considering how new she is to the unit. Regardless, he has been able to interact with her on a fairly regular basis on the Grant, and has come to enjoy the woman's company reasonably. Dunn has noted that Ffanci seems to be something of a 'social butterfly' - capable of adjusting how she approaches conversations and individuals on the fly, based upon how those individuals themselves operate.


This capability in social situations has garnered Dunn's interest, and he has taken to watching how Ffanci interacts with others with a kind of morbid curiosity - he believes that should the woman be able to utilise the skill to her advantage, she could one day make a strong leader, but that remains to be seen.



Patrick Stevenson:


Stevenson is the most present Marauder that Dunn has been able to work with since his transfer to the 13th Marauder Division, and he has been impressed at the capabilities of Stevenson as both a fighter and a Marauder. Stevenson's veterancy has impressed Lachlan, instilling an idea in Dunn's mind that the man's breadth of experiences only further his skills as a combatant.


However, Dunn has noted a few aspects of Stevenson personally which cast doubt and concern over his mind - he believes that Stevenson's long service in the MI has created a view in the man's mind that he perhaps has become stuck in his ways to a degree, and he senses an ambition behind Stevenson's actions which cause some concern for the Specialist.


Regardless of his concerns, Dunn holds a high view of Stevenson, and believes him a firm and capable ally, perhaps even a friend.




William Saint-Claire


Dunn has a comfortable, albeit not particularly close or lengthy relationship with Saint-Claire. Lachlan believes that William is a capable engineer, and enjoyable company to be around. However, he has yet to notice anything of William that particularly sets him aside in his mind from other members of the MI. There is no negative aspect of Lachlan's view of Saint-Claire, there is simply nothing outstanding in his mind regarding the Engineer.


Regardless, Dunn remains content to have William as both an ally on the field of battle, and an acquaintance to share a drink with off-duty.
