Allinad 'Beetle' Palland was a Middle-Eastern Immigrant to the US and was a resident of South Dakota when Nod took over. He found a trio of kids: a Russian-American Girl, a Japanese-American boy, and a 13-year old boy. These 3 were really Psych, Samari, and Snake of the South Dakota Resistance. Initially, Allinad, who was given the code-name 'Beetle', tried to take over leadership of the SDR, but when Psych proved herself more powerful and skilled, he went with her leadership. He was most skilled with heavy vehicles stolen from the Brotherhood of NOD. When the organization dissolved, he retired to Nevada, but stays in contact with other SDR members. Before their re-appearance, he was thought to be the only person to know Snake's and Thrax's locations.
