Dew Gayl[1] is a member of Team NDGO. Dew and her team fought Team SSSN in a match of the Vytal Festival Tournament in the episode "New Challengers...".

Appearance

Dew is a young woman with lightly-tanned skin, dirty blonde hair swept to the left, and violet eyes.

She wears a sleeveless green dress with an asymmetrical hem, what appears to be golden scale one-sleeved high neck top underneath her dress, a lighter green sarong tied around her hips, and a golden spaulder. Two thin chain loops run from the front of her spaulder and around her torso to the back.

She also wears a pair of over-the-knee scale stockings, armoured calf-high boots that match her spaulder though the rear of her calves is exposed and a simple chain bracelet with a ring connected to it on her right hand as well as a brown band around her left wrist with two beaded bracelets.

Personality

As one of Shade's Vacuan students, Dew is mentioned as being one of the greatest critics of the other schools, unimpressed by their failures to protect Haven Academy and Beacon Academy, thus choosing to torment and harass them about it.[2]

Powers and Abilities

She is shown to be skilled at hand-to-hand combat, being able to parry or dodge attacks from Sage and Scarlet with ease. She also showed the ability to deflect thrown projectiles using her spear, as well as setting them on fire, which she used to great effect against Sun Wukong and Scarlet, eliminating the latter from the fight.

Weapon

Main article: Dew's Spear

Dew's weapon of choice is her Spear. Through the use of Wind Dust,[3] she is capable of creating large cyclones that can easily pluck enemies off their feet and fling them long distances. Using this ability, she was able to throw Sage Ayana out of the arena, and she almost succeeded at doing the same to Sage's teammate Scarlet David during NDGO's match with SSSN.

Trivia

  • "Dew" is the name used to describe the droplets of water that form over cold surfaces during the night.
  • Gayl is a corruption of the word "Gale", used to refer to strong gusts of wind. While wind itself is colorless, in several other forms of media it is often represented by the color green. This is further compounded in-universe by wind Dust also being green.
  • Dew and the rest of Team NDGO were created by a group of fans who backed Rooster Teeth's Lazer Team Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.[4] Dew is voiced by her creator Paige Campbell, "Team NDGO Character Consultant" in the credits of the episode. Dew has additional spoken lines supplied by Kim Newman.[5]
  • Mylissa Zelechowski, creator and voice of Gwen Darcy, has stated that the creators of Team NDGO's headcanon for Dew's sexuality is that she is asexual, along with Nebula and Gwen.[6] However, this has yet to be publicly confirmed by Rooster Teeth.
