Dwight Schrute (full name Dwight K. Schrute III) is the assistant to the regional manager, Michael Scott, as well as the top salesman for the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Dwight works hard but has little common sense or social tact, and is a difficult man to describe in a short bio. The best we can do is part nerd, part fascist. He cares deeply for Dunder Mifflin and for Michael, but does not seem to command any respect among his peers.

Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation. An improversation.

David, here it is. My philosophy is basically this. And this is something that I live by. And I always have. And I always will. Don't ever, for any reason, do anything to anyone, for any reason, ever, no matter what. No matter... where. Or who, or who you are with, or, or where you are going, or... or where you've been... ever. For any reason, whatsoever.
