Used car dealership owner in Seacouver, Washington.
A used car salesman, he ran a small lot in Richie Ryan's old neighborhood. He gave Richie his first legitimate job, as a salesman, following his time at MacLeod and Noël Antiques. When Richie sold a lemon to his friend Angie Burke, however, Dawes told him the car had been sold 'as is' and that it broke down was just too bad. Richie quit, not liking the unfair practices.
