Dwight Kurt Schrute III is a character on NBC's The Office portrayed by Rainn Wilson. He was originally based on Gareth Keenan from the original UK version of The Office. Dwight is the top salesman for the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company and has won numerous awards for his successes, despite lacking social skills and common sense. And despite his personal dislike of Jim Halpert, the two are an effective sales team. Dwight's ability as a salesman, though, has rarely commanded the respect of his peers or led to higher levels of professional success. Moreover, though at one time he was the Assistant to the Regional Manager, he is now a debatable number 3 in the office after Jim Halpert. Dwight is also known as Mark Payne, his alias.

In an episode commentary on the season-one DVD, Wilson refers to Dwight as a "fascist nerd".

Dwight is a former volunteer sheriff Dwight also likes paintball, survivalism, Goju Ryu and weapons. He drives a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am.

Not much is revealed about Dwight's parents except that his father used to take him hunting, cheated in games, and that he battled obesity, high blood pressure, and cancer. Dwight once mentioned that his grandfather fought in WWII and ended up in an Allied Prison Camp , implying he was a soldier in the German army. This is later confirmed while Dwight is explaining his reasoning for his living to a long age. He tells the cameras that his grandfather is still "puttering around Argentina somewhere," implying that his grandfather was one of the members of the SS who fled into South America. His father and grandfather are also named Dwight Schrute, however his great-grandfather was named Dwide Schrude.
