Cliff Doaks had served as a soldier in the "Desert Storm" conflict in the Middle East.
Years later, Doaks was engaged to be married to Lindy. They visited New York City two weeks before they were scheduled to be married. They managed to get into the swank night club "Club Noir."
Doaks and Lindy were sitting at a table marveling at the hip club scene when they saw drug lord Javi Lagarto threaten club owner Neal Garner with a grenade. Doaks tried to intervene, but ended up getting shot by Lagarto's bodyguards Ruben and H.R. Then Neal Garner shot Lagarto, but the drug lord dropped the grenade, which apparently killed most everybody in the club, including Cliff Doaks and Lindy.
