Daniel cares about the people around him. As a leader he pays attention to the well-being of his people and does what he can to make sure they've got everything they need to do their job well. As a friend he's often one to pay visits out of the blue to give someone a friendly ear, or give someone a break when their life is getting out of hand.

Even before becoming a soldier Sousa had a strong sense of self-discipline and it shows through in his appearance and how he carries himself. It also means he's inclined to follow the rules as they've been laid out for him, however since meeting Peggy Carter, his view on the rules has loosened considerably, seeing that they're not always right or just, but he still holds tight to his own values and personal rules.

A man doesn't lose his leg in the war and then pass the SSR's physical testing without drive. Daniel has a quiet, dogged determination that has seen him through the war, rehabilitation, and numerous investigations for the SSR and later SHIELD.

Daniel is at his core an honest man. He doesn't lie, cheat or steal unless the job calls for it, and when it comes to his friends and those closest to him they can count on his honest opinion no matter how difficult it may be for him to say it.

Once Daniel's loyalty is earned it's hard to lose outside of deep and obvious betrayal. The people he's closest to can count on him being there whenever they need him no matter the personal cost.

Daniel doesn't miss much, he's a natural detective and excels at taking in as it is rather than letting himself be distracted by assumptions. In personal situations he tends to pick up on the subtle tells of those around them either using them to further his mission when it comes to marks, or combines it with his caring nature to know just when to be there for someone.

Daniel learned how to cook in the 30's when everyone in his family had to pitch in while his mother worked as a school teacher. It's a skill that he kept up through six years of living with Peggy as a matter of survival (you try her cooking) and while he's not any sort of gourmet he can put together a solid, if somewhat dated, home cooked meal with limited resources fairly easily.

Hand To Hand Combat:
Between his time in the Army, SSR and SHIELD, Sousa has become an expert combatant who has, despite his injury, gone toe to toe with even Red Room trained agents and came out alive. Knowing better than to fight fair, Sousa uses fists, his cane, and any objects within reach to maximum effect in a fight. While better one on one, he can fight more than one trained opponent but they have an easier time of turning his injury to their advantage.

Sousa's main gift as an agent is his eye for investigation, if he hadn't been scooped up by the SSR he would have likely ended up a cop or in the FBI. He is methodical and exhaustive in his approach to investigation, often taking the time others don't to study the whole scene or situation before coming to conclusions. This has allowed him to find things others miss, ranging from a key at a crime scene to the fact SHIELD has been infiltrated by HYDRA.

Daniel speaks English and Portugese fluently, conversational Spanish and French. In addition he has picked up some basic German, Russian and Mandarin from the war and his time working at the SSR and SHIELD. He is also fairly fluent in the slang of Hollywood in the late 40's and early 50's for whatever that's worth.

A lieutenant in the army in war time, the chief of the LA SSR office and later SHIELD's first Field Director Sousa is comfortable in a command role and has learned to be a solid leader who puts his people first and makes sure they know it. He knows the techniques of good leadership and can keep a cool head and give orders even in the most stressful situations.

Sousa is a certified expert with a pistol and rifle, and kept in practice throughout his professional life. While he's not going to outshoot Bullseye or Deadshot, he can reliably pull off long distance shots with a pistol, use a sniper rifle, or hold his own in combat with a BAR or a Thompson machine gun.

Military Training:
An officer in the US army and assigned to recon platoon during WWII, Daniel learned 1940's era weapons, tactics, military protocol as well as demolitions and demolitions disposal. As well as more generally applicable skills like stealth, navigation and wilderness survival.

Daniel learned piano from his mother and how to sing as part of his church choir. His piano skills are rusty as hell but his pipes are still pretty good and he can carry a tune.

One of the first dozen or so agents of SHIELD and it's first agent to fall in the line of duty Daniel Sousa has a legendary reputation in the organization and while his status is somewhat up in the air as of 2021, he can count on that reputation and his ties to Peggy Carter and Melinda May for help from the organization.

Despite Daniel's self-discipline and keen investigative mind he tends to lead with his heart rather than his head, leading him to make impulsive decisions when it comes to the people he cares about and generally operate by a somewhat antiquated notion of chivalry. The surest way to get a rise out of Daniel is to insult or hurt someone he cares about.

Missing Leg:
Daniel's leg was blown off in Russia in 1945 and he gets around with the help of a cane and a prosthetic leg. With both he's able to move, fight and walk ably enough to have passed the SSR and SHIELD physical tests to become an agent of both organizations. Without them though he's unbalanced and slow and at a severe disadvantage in combat.

Out of Time:
Daniel was born in 1919 and 'died' in 1956, missing the entire span between then and 2021. The world he's come to is a very different place than the one he's left and he's working to learn the cultural norms, technology and lingo which often puts him in awkward positions or leaves playing catchup with his fellow agents.
