Dylan Thomas Royle (Previously Jenkins) is the son of Trevor Royle and Val Jenkins and the stepson of Grace Black. He is portrayed by James Fletcher.

Characterisation Edit

Billed as "a good kid who wants to find his place in the world, but if you cross him he'll make you pay for it." It has also been said that he will be harbouring some secrets.

Arrival Edit

Dylan arrived in the village believing Cameron Campbell (Cameron Moore) to be his father, until Trevor reveals the truth. Dylan swiftly joined Hollyoaks High School, making friends with Peri LomaxTom Cunningham and Nico Blake (Ruby O'DonnellEllis Hollins and Persephone Swales-Dawson). Dylan develops a strong bond with Nico, later entering a relationship with her. Dylan, Nico and Tom are stunned to discover Peri is pregnant and support her, but to cover this, Nico says she is pregnant. Nico's grandfather Patrick Blake (Jeremy Sheffield) threatened Dylan after discovering Nico's "pregnancy".

Departure Edit

Dylan is shocked to the core when Kim reveals that she was 'GothBoy98' and whilst processing the revelation, a mystery figure - known to viewers as the Gloved Hand Killer - appears in the room. They pour a large dose of potassium chloride in his IV drip. Dylan immediately goes into cardiac arrest and despite attempts to resuscitate him, he dies whilst Trevor watches on, distraught and devastated.

Intro Edit

Before Fletcher's departure, Dylan's introductory scene is him swiping a skateboard that is appeared to be on fire across the screen.
