(Actor Jensen Ackles)
Dean Winchester is a character from the TV show Supernatural. He will be the subject of several chapters, number currently unknown, of the fanfic because his family hunts demons and other supernatural monsters for what could be considered his "job." If Dean saw a story in the newspaper detailing the deaths of a bunch of people in a bizarre manner, all found with their mouths frozen open in one final scream, don't you think he'd investigate it? ;)
Some of the action featuring Dean will be pre-series (of SPN) and some will be during the course of the series.
Dean Winchester is played by actor Jensen Ackles (who is from Laurel's hometown, woo!)
His brother is Sam Winchester and his father is John Winchester.
