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 good-hearted and very helpful, although she comes across as creepy to the others.

Total Drama: Revenge of the Island


Dawn arrives with B.

Dawn makes her debut in Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, on a yacht with the twelve other contestants, meditating on a railing next to B. She tells him the color of his aura is "exceptionally purplish-green" and that it suits him well, which makes him smile. When Chris blows up the yacht, Dawn is the first person to make it to shore, somehow doing so without getting wet. This annoys Jo, who thought she was the first to make it to shore and Dawn tells her that she took a shortcut. She is later seen with Mike and Zoey on the beach where she states that Zoey is an only child, shocking Zoey, and she tells her she knew because her soul reads "like an open book." Dawn is later placed on the Toxic Rats, arriving after Mike and Zoey in the race where she seems to levitate to the finish line, scaring Mike. During the challenge, when B signals his team to do something, Dawn directs the others, as he doesn't speak. When her team loses the challenge and Staci starts rambling again, she along with the others give a disapproving look at her.

In Truth or Laser Shark, she starts the episode by hanging upside down in her cabin, while talking to a bird, clearly worried about what it is saying. When Dakota complains about losing her beauty sleep, Dawn replies by saying that her desire for fame is a depressed cry for love, surprising Dakota that she knows so much about her. In the first part of the challenge, Dawn explains to Chris how B's aura shows his non-talking abilities when he is asked a question and does not verbally answer. Later, she does well on her portion of the obstacle course, by taking advice from the mutated rat about when to duck. Despite this, her team ends up losing, and Dawn convinces them that Dakota must go, saying that a great darkness will befall her if she remains.


Dawn is surprised by Scott's "beetle whispering."

In Ice Ice Baby, Dawn calmly saves Lightning from choking on his food by performing the Heimlich maneuver o nhim. She then finds the beetle Lightning nearly swallowed and tends to it, saying that she was merely saving the beetle and not Lightning. In the first challenge, Dawn struggles with climbing the mountain, being unable to even reach the lowest rock. She then senses B has a plan and decides to help him. B's plan involves the junk pile that a mutant beetle is guarding and Dawn notes that it was angry. Eventually, Dawn realizes that it is distraught because it had lost its offspring, which turns out to be the small beetle that Lightning was choking on. She reunites them, allowing B to complete his invention and win the first part of the challenge. Dawn tries to help Scott during the second part of the challenge by telling him which snowballs he should use. Scott ignores her the first time, which leads to the snowball exploding in his face. She then asks Scott if he was held enough when he as a child, clearly frightening him. Later when the giant beetle arrives again, Dawn is extremely impressed when Scott convinces the mutant beetle not to attack the fort and instead attack the Mutant Maggots instead. her team loses the challenge, and she is convinced by Scott that B is to blame, adding in a lie that he hates nature. She receives the first marshmallow of the night and is saddened when B is eliminated.

In the beginning of Finders Creepers, Dawn is shown meditating in her cabin, when a firefly interrupts her, warning her that great evil is near. She takes this to be Chris, and is correct when he proceeds to wake them with an air horn. Later, after Chris announces the challenge, Dawn and her team set out to find their first clue. After finding it in the base of a tree, Dawn reads the clue to determine where to go next. She identifies the next clue's location by the stars, and Scott deduces that they go northwest. Immediately afterwards, Dawn is taken by the "spider," with Sam seeming to be the only one concerned. She is later shown in the spider's web, with the other captured contestants and is freed, along with the others, by Cameron.

Backstabbers Ahoy (37)

Dawn comforts Zoey at the beach.

In Backstabbers Ahoy!, Dawn spends most of her time collecting various pieces of nature, and putting them in a massive garbage bag. She then encounters Brick on his early morning run, and tells him that he was teased a lot as a child and that he has a need to be dominated. At breakfast that morning, she tells Lightning that his chi has been shrunken, to which Lightning quickly denies this and steals her breakfast. While the first part of the challenge is underway, Dawn goes off to collect more items, mostly seashells, and encountered Zoey, heartbroken over her situation with Mike supposedly liking Anne Maria. Dawn comforts her by telling her that she won't be lonely forever, and that Mike likes her a lot. Dawn briefly mentions that this was seen in his aura, or "the Mike parts of it." Zoey questions Dawn about this last comment, but when she turns around, Dawn has vanished. Dawn, along with Brick and Sam, are selected to be the water-skiers during the second portion of the challenge. She is noticeably horrified at the mutated seagulls, and orders Scott to not fire anymore seagulls after two had already been shot. Nevertheless, the final seagull is fired when Scott aims it at Sam's back while he is driving the boat. This causes their team to lose, and Dawn accuses Scott of sabotaging them, knowing that Jo's gun was jammed and that Scott was the only one who could have shot Sam.

Backstabbers Ahoy (56)

Dawn is shocked by her elimination.

In the confessional, she declares Scott to be a traitor and vows to expose his ways, unaware that he is eavesdropping on her from behind the outhouse. Before the elimination ceremony, when Scott hands Dawn her garbage bag, he drops it and it spills open, revealing all of the contestants' missing possessions. Because of this, everyone believes that Dawn had stolen their possessions, even though it was Scott who stole them and decided to make a last-minute switch to incriminate Dawn instead of Brick. Thus, at the elimination ceremony that night, when it comes down to the bottom two of Scott and Dawn, Dawn is declared eliminated. Dawn frantically tries to save herself by revealing that she has found the McLean-Brand Chris Head, only to find out that it is a fake carved by Scott. She then tries to warn her team about Scott, but Chef stuffs her into her own garbage bag and places her in the Hurl of Shame, sending her flying off before she can warn them about Scott's evil ways.

Dawn is mentioned by Scott in Runaway Model, when he lies to Zoey and tells her that all his team members voted off Dawn behind his back, and that she was the only one who could save Lindsay from Sasquatchanakwa.

Dawn reappears in Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown, 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.
