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. 

He shares a past with Willow and Colby, although they're not always on good terms.

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.
