Do not fill this in!== Personality == Benji is a highly intelligent agent and has a sense of humor. He also tends to talk nonstop when he is nervous. Benji Dunn, the IMF technician turned field agent is shown to be kind and fiercely loyal to those he trusts will do the right thing, even if this means directly disobeying his government. This has been seen in all 4 films he’s appeared in thus far. Similarly to Ethan, despite being betrayed and abandoned by his government multiple times, he has not expressed any desire to leave or seek retribution. As a character his skills and composure have been shown to continuously improve. Showing he is highly interested in his job, motivated and has worked hard to become the highly skilled and respectable agent he is now. Of all the agents shown on screen, Benji is shown to be the most outwardly afraid or stressed over the dangerous to horrific situations he finds himself in. He’s not stoic and fearless but if anything that shows how compassionate and human he is. He is willing to put himself under extreme stress and danger because he knows his skills can be useful in saving the lives of others. His fear expresses itself in numerous ways - expressions, visible unease, tone of voice or when nervous (or excited) he talks fast and unnecessarily. Perhaps as an attempt to calm himself or release nervous energy. He uses humour and playful banter with his colleagues/ friends but also as a way of distracting himself from dangerous or tragic situations he faces. At the ending of Ghost Protocol he revealed that he experiences nightmares from the events of the mission. His often visible fear does not however hinder his abilities as an agent or affect his composure to an extent that he can’t work. Benji is highly intelligent but sometimes he finds himself so focused on a task at hand that he becomes less aware of other things happening e.g looking into the camera in the Kremlin (Ghost Protocol) and not realising he isn’t directing Ethan properly (Fallout). He is shown to have a strong relationship with his colleagues, in particular Ethan Hunt who he always trusts without hesitation. Ethan in turn trusts Benji wholeheartedly too despite being betrayed so many times in the past. Benji looks up to Ethan as a mentor and a friend. In Rouge Nation it is implied that Benji was partially inspired to train as a field agent due to Ethan. Similarly to Ethan, Benji does not want to kill anyone on a mission unless absolutely necessary e.g Wistrom in Ghost Protocol. Perhaps both his visible fear and occasional mistakes are a consequence of having the least amount of experience as a field agent compared to other agents/ adversaries shown on screen. Benji has been a field agent for 9 years so far compared to Ethan who has over 24 years experience as an agent (as of 2020). Regardless, Benji’s capabilities far exceed that of an average person and continue to improve. His hobbies include enjoying opera and playing video games such as Halo 5 (as seen in Rouge Nation). It would be wrong to take one look at him and write him off as a bumbling and naïve agent. While he can be funny when he wants to be, he is an extremely skilled and dedicated agent who has suffered an extensive amount of physical and mental stress/ trauma while still coming out on top in the end.
