Dwayne’s been around a while and seen a lot of things. As a result, there’s no one better to help the team with insider knowledge of the local island community.
Dwayne knows the island of Saint-Marie better than anyone. He is connected to everywhere and everyone – and if you want anything got for you, he’s the man to get it. His detection methods are a little dubious and sometimes his means to solving a crime are questionable. But he does draw the line at out-and-out criminality. Or so the rest of the team hope. He may be the maverick on the team, but they wouldn’t be the same without him.
