- "It definitely didn't come from the Vasgar side, sir."
- — Dawes, after Victor Hoffman asked were a mortar barrage had come from
Siege of Anvil GateEdit
In 17 B.E., Dawes was stationed at Anvil Gate in Anvegad, Kashkur. When the fort came under siege, Dawes took cover in a Sangar when Indie special forces began launching mortars into the city. He was joined by two other Gears and Lt. Victor Hoffman, who tried to determine where the attack was coming from. Dawes told him it was not coming from the front line on the Vasgar side of the border, where the Indie's forces were camped.
