Character Bio

Allan A Dale photo
A cheeky chancer, a wide-boy opportunist, Allan will make sure he's got his own escape route sorted before he stops to help you. He has the gift of the gab and the Allan of old would cheat his best friend at cards if there was something in it for him.

Allan's traits can be used to avoid capture, get food to the poor, and make useful contacts. But if skills like that were to fall into the wrong hands, there would be big trouble. After a year in the forest surviving on very little, Allan began to want more than this earnest existence can offer. The temptation of power and money led him astray. Eventually, he rediscovered these values and earned back the respect of the gang. But will it last?

Bio:
Allan A Dale is an expert pickpocket and a compulsive liar with a sarcastic nature and no musical ability. A cheeky chancer, a wide-boy opportunist, Allan will make sure he's got his own escape route sorted before he stops to help you. He has the gift of the gab and the Allan of old would cheat his best friend at cards if there was something in it for him. Allan's traits can be used to avoid capture, get food to the poor, and make useful contacts. But if skills like that were to fall into the wrong hands, there would be big trouble. After a year in the forest surviving on very little, Allan began to want more than this earnest existence can offer. The temptation of power and money led him astray. Eventually, he rediscovered these values and earned back the respect of the gang.

After being captured by Gisborne, he sells him information. After Robin finds out that he has turned traitor, Allan goes to work for Gisborne. He tries to help keep Gisborne away from Marian and has admitted (at the same time as Will Scarlet) that he "likes" Djaq, the Saracen girl in the gang. In the final episode, Allan returns to the band of outlaws and tries to help them defeat the Sheriff of Nottingham. After Lady Marian's death, Allan returns with Little John, Much and Robin and the crew is joined by Tuck and Kate. Then, after the Sheriff is killed, Gisborne's sister, Isabella, tricks Robin into thinking Allan has been helping Isabella. Robin ties Allan up, and he escapes, and sees a mysterious figure walking through the forest. He has to find Robin, and begins to run as fast as he can, but receives three arrows to his back, and dies. The old Sheriff, who is not really dead, lies Allan's body in front of Nottingham's gates, which has been taken over by Robin, and the Outlaws find him, before John carries the body into the castle and Vaisey advances towards the castle.
