When the world went dark, Rapid City, one of the few surviving American cities, narrowly escaped a plunge into apocalyptic anarchy.
A crisis of leadership after the death of Dalton's first Commander created a power struggle from which the current Council was born. However, changing political currents in the city lead many to believe the Citadel may soon have another powerful single leader, Director Elizabeth Spaulding.
After the War, Dalton's political climate fueled the rise of certain ideologies, but severely oppresses others.
The Mixed were developed to be enhanced soldiers and spies, and the work was kept secret for years before it was finally legalized and Mixeds became a part of everyday life in prewar years.
Dalton schools are sector specific and teach a government mandated curriculum. They are designed with one purpose in mind; create students who never question the status quo.
Every student in Dalton memorizes the list of the most important events that led to the creation of their government and their town, from the creation of the Mixed to the Year of Destruction, to the formation of the Citadel Council.
