Dawn, labeled The Moonchild, was a camper on Total Drama: Revenge of the Island as a member of the Toxic Rats.


Dawn is a mysterious nature lover who wants to use the prize money to help Mother Earth. She is able to communicate with all kinds of animals, mutated or not, who take a strong liking to her. She is frequently seen meditating and reads her tea leaves presumably every morning. Dawn is also well known for having the ability to read people's auras. In fact, her first line in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island is her telling B his is "exceptionally purplish-green." It is likely through this skill that she is one of only two people to figure out Mike's disorder without having to be told. Among this, Dawn also shows signs of having other supernatural powers. In Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Chris blows up the boat she and other new contestants are on, forcing them into the water. Not only does she arrive at the beach first, but completely dry, which baffles Jo. Dawn states that she can predict people's futures, later in the season proving correct. She ends up foretelling the unfortunate fate of another player. Beyond her unconventional characteristics, Dawn appears to be kindhearted and very helpful, although she comes across as creepy to the others.

Total Drama: Revenge of the Island

Dawn the Soul Reader

Dawn comforting Zoey for being an only child.

Dawn makes her debut in Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er! and she starts her aura searching (which would become a running gag during her time on the show) with B, saying that his aura is "exceptionally purplish-green", and would do the same with Zoey, telling her that she was an only child at home, and that her soul reads like an open book. She is placed on the Toxic Rats, and is able to scare a few of her fellow contestants by apparently levitating to get to her destinations in the episode which also constantly annoys Jo. She would also expand on B`s aura in the next episode by saying that it is not in his aura to speak, and she tells Dakota that her desire for fame is a depressed cry for love. She has also shown that she is incredibly close with animals, as she listens to the rat in Truth or Laser Shark and ducks when the rat tells her to. With its help, Dawn performs exceptionally well in her part of the challenge. She also saves a beetle that Lightning accidentally eats, and reunites it with it's mother in Ice Ice Baby. The mother beetle later repays her by not attacking her team when it is about to.


A firefly warns a meditating Dawn that there is dark presence among them.

She is able to find the first clue in Finders Creepers while reading it out loud so that everyone can determine where to go next. She is the first camper captured by the spider but Sam seems to be the only one to care that she went missing. She is later freed, along with the other contestants by Cameron.

Backstabbers Ahoy (47)

Dawn vows to expose Scott for betraying their team.

Dawn leaves a bad impression on Scott, when she creeps him out by asking him if he was held enough as a child, as well as being impressed after mistaking him for a beetle whisperer. Her downfall would take place in Backstabbers Ahoy!, where she would collect pieces of nature and puts them in a garbage bag in order to sell them on Crud's List, doing this around the same time as many of the campers prized possessions go missing. When their team lost again, Scott claims that Sam was shot by Jo but Dawn immediately knows that he is lying as Jo's gun was jammed. In the confessional, Dawn talks about Scott being a traitor and vows to expose him for the awful things he has done. Unbeknownst to Dawn, Scott overheard her conversation and hid the items he stole inside her garbage bag, framing her for being a thief instead of his plan to convince his team to vote Brick off and leading her team to vote her off. Dawn attempts to defend herself by revealing that she had the McLean-Brand Chris Head but it turns out she found one of Scott's fake carvings

of the head instead. Scott tells her this, and she throws it at him, before saying "the universe would not want her to wins such a perverse game." Dawn again tries to expose Scott for the "sociopathic scoundrel that he is" and tries to warn her team about his evil ways, but Chef Hatchet stops her, and puts her in her garbage bag, before sending her to the Hurl of Shame.

Dawn is also mentioned by Scott when he tells Zoey that his whole team voted Dawn off behind his back in Runaway Model while trying to convince her that she was the only one who could save Lindsay from Sasquatchanakwa.

Dawn reappears in finale, where she supports Cameron to win the season. When the mutant animals begin to attack the cast, Dawn watches in horror as a giant tree squid punches B repeatedly, causing her to question why her tea leaves couldn't predict the event would happen. She is later shown leaving the island with the other competitors in a speedboat, and laughs along with everyone else when Chris gets arrested.


Total Drama Reloaded

Like B, Dawn was not meant to appear in Total Drama Reloaded and did not have an original design. Instead, a character by the name of Molly took her place.

Dawn's Audition Tape

Dawn states her name and her purpose for recording the tape.

Dawn's audition begins with her greeting the "citizens of the universe". She then says her name and is recording this so she can participate in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island. A squirrel jumps on her hand, and she calls it a "blessed little one". Her tone of voice is noticeably softer at this point. She says that she had read her tea leaves that morning, and they said Total Drama "would make her a lot of money". Then she states that money isn't important to her, and that nature and her animal friends are, petting the squirrel. She says she will win Total Drama and donate her money to help Mother Earth. Suddenly, an eagle swoops down on them and takes the squirrel, ending the audition.



  • Dawn is one of six contestants who is known for their love of animals. The others are DJ, Bridgette, Ella, Laurie, and Miles.
  • Dawn is the only contestant in the series who has been implied to have supernatural powers.
  • Dawn is one of four characters with the ability to communicate with animals, with the others being Izzy, Ella, and Ennui.
  • Dawn is one of the two second generation characters to not appear in Total Drama Reloaded, with the other being B. Although she had a character in place of her called Molly.


  • Dawn shares similarities with Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter, and could be a direct parody; the two bear a striking resemblance to each other, allegedly have supernatural powers, are considered outcasts, and have an affinity with nature.
