Dean is a sponsored, professional surfer making a living getting footage in rare surf spots around the world that he sells to magazine and video companies. He and his small film crew had been travelling through South Zagoria to get the very first surfing footage at Skalisty Island, Svetlojarsk, and other locations when the infection broke out. Everyone has always called Dean by the nickname, Razzy, ever since he was a child. His parents were hippies from Southern California and gave him that name after he ate himself sick with raspberries on several occasions. He knows about surfing, fishing, ocean tides, weather, and has above average experience as an auto and boat motor mechanic from several years of working at his father's auto/marine shop. He is a thrillseeker and likes to instigate people for laughs, as long as no one will imminently get harmed. He is a pescatarian and very health conscious, even though he will indulge in recreational drugs occasionally.
