Played by Patrick O'Connor
Dean is leader of a new wave of River Boys.
He came to Summer Bay when Ash needed help with a manhunt.
A bad boy from Mangrove River, Dean can sometimes be hot-headed and argumentative.
He is fiercely independent, and strives to maintain his "tough-guy" image.
But underneath it all, Dean is loyal and caring, and always tries to do the right thing.
