Welcome to Character Appreciation, a blog series that will run for the whole year alongside Project 10. Each week we'll take a look at one Total Drama character, what we like and dislike about them, how they've grown, and what we hope to see from them in the future. I'm Raised By Wolves, and this week, we'll be looking at the Moonchild, Dawn.


Dawn debuts onto the show in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island's premiere episode. She's quick to establish her supernatural connections, telling B what his aura looks like, and managing to reach the shore completely dry and before anyone else, surprising Jo. Dawn begins to bond with B, however, her relations with the rest of her team are sketchy, with Lightning referring to her as "creepy girl". Dawn displays her ability to enchant animals in Ice Ice Baby, and she also shows how deeply she cares for them. Her passion for animals and nature carries over into her final episode, where she takes charge of her team, and manages to nearly lead them to victory, had it not been for the antagonist's meddling. Dawn is eliminated after being framed for stealing the other contestants' belongings, but reveals that she has collected enough keepsakes from the show to sell them online and create a shelter for the mutants of Camp Wawanakwa.


Even though she has a relatively short stay on Total Drama, it doesn't stop Dawn from being one of my favorite characters in the entire franchise. Nature-loving, creepy, mysterious and sweet – I suppose those are the qualities that make me drawn to her. I think another thing that really makes her stand out is how she's an outsider within the cast, she tries to make friends, but she's completely oblivious to how she comes off to people. Also, one can't help but feel sorry for her when she's framed of theft by Scott. Her elimination is by far the saddest one in the season. There's also her voice and design in general, it just shouts "enigma" to me. She's really interesting to watch in my opinion, and I really hope she returns in a future season so her character can be expanded upon.
