Tall and lean, with a monstrous face, leather-like skin, and a beige/light tan coat, Dedan is the ill-tempered, foul-mouthed Guardian of Zone 1. A loyal servant of The Queen and formerly a kind and wise ruler, the ineptitude and cowardice of the Elsens he governed slowly but surely frustrated him into becoming the perpetually furious and occasionally outright cruel leader he is seen as at the beginning of the game.
