Parties aren't for me. I'm meeting up with some fellow visual effects enthusiasts to discuss realistic explosions in zero-gravity environments! Some people have some bad science to answer for...

—Dean, Sundance

Dean Ericson is a Special FX artist you go to for help on your movie "Clash at Sunset". Dean is a huge Caltech nerd, a master of both real-life explosions and computer-generated effects. Dean can be recruited in the quest A Special (FX) Date.

Profile Edit

Dean loved watching special effects as a boy, and would go on an on for hours about CGI and Motion Capture and Special FX, which no one else would understand. He moved to Hollywood in his later years to study Special FX, and is now great at editing movies, as he proves in some speed editing for the MC's movie, Clash at Sunset.

Personality Edit

Dean isn't too comfortable with glitz and glamour. He's more of a dork-hipster hybrid. When Your Character and Ethan go visit him for the first time, Ethan instructs you to wear something down-to-earth.

In-Game Description Edit

BOOM! With special effects genius Dean Ericson in your entourage, life is one big blockbuster movie! Provided, of course, that that blockbuster movie has exquisitely edited scenes, seamless cinematography, and knock-your-socks-off explosions. Dean has VERY high standards.

Appearance Edit

Dean has blond hair and black glasses. He has a gray and pink striped shirt and a black jacket, which is known as Coffee Shop in the store.

Relationships Edit

Your Character Edit

Dean is scouted by your character and Ethan to provide SFX for your movie, "Clash at Sunset".


Dean and Shae start dating during the filming of the movie "Permanent Wound". Bianca makes Shae break up with him in the quest Dean, Distracted as an attempt to distract Dean from editing the movie, but they soon reconcile as he finds out the truth.
