[[folder:Dillon]]
!!Colonel George Dillon
->'''Played By:''' Carl Weathers

A former teammate of Dutch and current CIA agent, sent along with Dutch's team.

* AgentScully: Dillon doesn't believe the Predator is what the team say it is.
-->''"You saying that [[spoiler:Blain and Hawkins]] were killed by a fucking lizard? That's a bullshit psyche job. There's two to three men out there at the most. Fucking lizard."''

* AssholeVictim: A shady government agent who tricked his former best friend and his team into going on an assassination mission.
* BigBadWannabe: When his hidden motive is revealed, he appeared to be an antagonist of a UsefulNotes/ColdWar ConspiracyThriller action movie, however, this is all thrown out of the window when the Predator shows up.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: A lighter case. His ulterior motive for accompanying the team is to use them to eliminate the guerillas under the context of a rescue mission.
* {{CIA}}
* CrushingHandshake: With Dutch, which he loses.

* FallenHero: A former best friend of Dutch who had become a crooked, pencil-pushing and deceitful CIA agent.
* GunsAkimbo: When he follows Mac after the Predator.

The fact that [[spoiler:he also sent Dutch's friend Jim Hopper and his team to do the same mission -- and got them horrifically killed by the Predator in the process--]] also does not win him any approval. All together, he is indirectly responsible for all of the [[spoiler:deaths caused by the Predator]].
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice
* {{Jerkass}}: He's shady and disagreeable.
* TheLancer
* TheNeidermeyer: He is a CIA Colonel, but is loathed by his teammates due to his inexperience on the field and viewed them in return as [[UnwittingPawn expendable assets]] for his hidden assassination mission.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Despite everything, he and Dutch do seem to make their peace with each other before he [[spoiler: goes off to challenge the Predator.]]
* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler:When he goes to fight the Predator with Mac.]] Lampshaded by Dutch before he does so.
--> '''Dutch''': You can't win this one [[spoiler:Dillon.]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Dillon''':]] I know, but maybe I can get even.
* TokenEvilTeammate: He's a crooked {{CIA}} agent whose despised by his comrades for his shady nature.
