|“||I swear I'll win your heart in the end, Max.||”|
Dylan is a beautiful and attractive winged boy. In the book FANG, he is introduced to the Flock. Dylan claims to have been raised in a lab in Canada, and to be eight months old. He is also a bit taller than Fang. He has a really good singing voice that seems to mesmerize people. Dylan is sometimes described as innocent, even though he can be somewhat of a hot head.
Dylan has been cloned from another Dylan by Dr. Hans Gunther-Hagen, the other Dylan "died in a car crash or something", eight months prior to his introduction to the Flock. Dylan was taught how to fly by Max in a missing chapter, where supposedly she pushes him off the roof, beforehand saying "Well, first we have to push you off the roof," and has yet to learn many fundamental skills. Like the Flock, Dylan has extra gifts. He has amazing sight, an example being able to see the International Space Station from Earth, and also hints that he can "see things happening far away, can see people across oceans- maybe even across time". He can also heal small wounds sustained by himself with his saliva.
Dylan is extremely good looking, over six feet tall, with dark, honey-colored hair and turquoise eyes the color of the Caribbean. He is bulkier and more muscular than Fang, but this could be just that he "has a more regular access to food."
The Voice told Max that Dylan was "designed for her", citing him as being her "perfect other half". Dylan seems to, in the preview of the book FANG, believe this to be a fact. However, after countless failures whilst trying to gain Max's attention, he tries to commit suicide at the end of the book. He survives, and is shown with the Flock at the end of the book during the wedding in the epilogue.
In ANGEL, he keeps trying to gain Max's favor, and seems to succeed in doing so. He goes through some of his first "real battles," and it comforts Max that he's "becoming like one of [them]." Dylan and Fang are the only ones that hold it together during the rescue operation near the end of the book.
In Nevermore, he is told he must kill Fang to save Max. The Voice tells him that he must fully win Max's heart. So he goes on a date with Max. Max accidently burns down the treehouse he built for them. When Fang comes back for Max, Dylan is extremely jealous. Then he sees Fang and Max reconciling and goes downtown and takes his anger out on cars, mailboxes and other things. He comes to a realization that he must kill Fang to win Max's heart. He comes back and helps the Flock from another attack of another swarm of Erasers and kills yet another Ari. Then he comes close to killing Fang. Max shields Fang and begs Dylan to spare him. Dylan said he loved Max more than anything ... even more than the survival of earth. Dylan then leaves realizing he will never win Max's heart. Later he comes to the survival community telling people to get to the caves. He survives the apocalypse.
