Background:
Dean is extremely ambitious, competitive and sees himself as no different to anyone else. He’s a charmer, at ease with his cerebral palsy, a state of mind born from a stable and encouraging family. His biggest bane is people making allowances for him and overcompensating do-gooders. Cynical people might argue Dean’s charm offensive is over compensation for his physical disability, but Dean is simply not that manipulative.
