Dexter "Dex" Jackson is a character in Saints Row, Saints Row 2, Saints Row 2: Corporate Warfare, Saints Row: Money Shot and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell.[5][11][6]

Julius was right. You never know when to quit.
— Dexter Jackson realizing The Protagonist won't drop his flags[12]

DescriptionEdit

Dex was a member of the 3rd Street Saints created by Julius Little to try and rid the city of Stilwater gang violence at the hands of Los Carnales, Vice Kings and Westside Rollerz. During the events of Saints Row Dex is appointed by Julius to take down Los Carnales and to also watch over Johnny Gat who offered to do the Vice Kings.[13]

Dex appears to be the voice of reason amongst the other lieutenants and is a suberb tactician and would rather plan than just going in guns blazing, which he tries to talk a trigger happy Johnny Gat out of doing.[14] In the final mission for the Los Carnales, Dex along with the player take down Angelo Lopez, finally finishing the Carnales gang.[9] He appears in the second epilogue mission when taking down corrupt Chief Monroe who was holding Julius.[15]

During Saints Row 2, Dex now works as the Head of Security for Ultor and is a successful millionaire,[16] leaving behind his life as a gang member. He doesn't appear in person during the game, but is mentioned a couple of times,[17][16] and the player is required to phone him to unlock the mission Revelation, which leads to Dex betraying both The Protagonist and Julius after luring them there.[18] In the second DLC for the game Corporate Warfare, Dex attempts to have newly appointed CEO of Ultor Eric Gryphon killed,[2] while partaking in illegal nuclear waste smuggling.[12] In the end, he ends up having to flee Stilwater to an unknown location after The Protagonist ruins his plans.[19]

Dex doesn't appear in Saints Row: The Third. In the unreleased spin-off Saints Row: Money Shot, Dex is assassinated by a female assassin working for Ultor named Cypher.

BiographyEdit

Saints RowEdit

Dex was one of the people affected by gang violence spreading throughout Stilwater and thus joined the gang formed by Julius Little, the 3rd Street Saints, to rid the city of its chaotic state. Dex appeared to be the voice of reason amongst Little's lieutenants. Dex is a superb tactician, but talk amongst the generic Saints gang members that wander the streets seemed to indicate that few Saints believe that Dex deserved his post and there was concern that Dex might have eventually challenged Julius Little for control of the gang. Dex seems to have a reasonably balanced attitude towards violence.[reference?]

Talk amongst the generic Saints gang members also indicates that Dex has a fondness for prostitutes and also has a younger sister. Dex is unquestionably the brains of the Saints organization as his credits include framing of the Vice Kings in an effort to draw public attention to the Vice Kings, as well as drafting the plans that lead to the assassinations of Los Carnales jefe, Hector Lopez, and Stilwater police chief, Police Chief Monroe.[reference?]

Saints Row 2Edit

Before The Protagonist was blown up on Alderman Richard Hughes' boat, Dex dropped his flags after he was offered a job in Ultor by Dane Vogel at the Saints' church. He called Troy Bradshaw after this happened, telling him that he knew Troy was a cop and he was out of the Saints, and wanted to make sure he and Troy won't have a problem (due to Troy being able to arrest him).[reference?]

Around the time that the Saints and Ultor were at war, The Protagonist visited the police station and listened to the conversations that were taped. He found out that it was Julius who put the bomb on Alderman's boat. He also found Dex's file containing his phone number. The Protagonist called Dex and he told him to come meet him at the church so that they could get rid of Julius. However, this was a trap set up by Dex and instead of Dex, Julius showed up and after a conflict between Julius and The Protagonist, a smoke bomb was thrown through the church's window. Dex had sent a Masako to get rid of the two, but they failed.[reference?]

Saints Row 2: Corporate WarfareEdit

Some time after, Eric Gryphon, Ultor's new CEO, visited the Saints telling them that he wanted protection from the Masako who were sent by Dex to kill Gryphon. The Protagonist successfully protected Gryphon from Dex's assassination attempt. After this Gryphon and Dex met in front of the Phillips Building and talked about Dex's attempt.[2]

Then Gryphon informed The Protagonist that Dex was selling toxic waste to illegal buyers. The Protagonist, with help from Ultor security, succeeded in stopping Dex's plan. Dex felt the heat closing in on him and asked for an immediate transfer to another Ultor branch.[12]

Gryphon again informed The Protagonist that Dex fled and that he couldn't do anything. However, The Protagonist still wanted to hurt Dex hard and Gryphon came up with a plan. While Gryphon was standing on the lighthouse informing The Protagonist of any of Dex's acquaintances walking around, The Protagonist killed them. After this happened, The Protagonist said he would find out which city Dex ran to and to get him.[20]

Saints Row: Money ShotEdit

Dex's death.

Main article: Saints Row: Money Shot

Dex's days of hiding have finally come to an end. After deducing his present location, Ultor dispatches a professional female assassin named Cypher to take him out. Using some very sophisticated sniper technology, Cypher makes her move on Dex in the midst of his big corporate birthday party; swiftly disposing of him with a bullet to the head.

TriviaEdit

  • Dex's pet peeve is people using the wrong terminology. Dex often states "It's 'The Carnales' or 'Los Carnales', not 'The Los Carnales'".
  • Dex and Julius are the only Saints who are not unlockable homies in Saints Row or Saints Row 2; and The Protagonist has a deep hatred for both of them in Saints Row 2.
  • Near the end of Saints Row, Saints may be heard saying "You aren't worried Dex might pull some Warren Williams bullshit, are you?", foreshadowing him becoming an enemy of the Saints in Saints Row 2.
  • Dex's hair, grammar, clothing style, and even voice, have changed dramatically from Saints Row to Saints Row 2. This suggests that he was very young in the first game, a teenager. This could also be down to him being in a well paid job and lifestyle, differing from being a gang member.
  • Dex's Phone Number in Saints Row 2 is 555-2628, but the number does not work unless his number is already in the Phone Book.
  • Dex sometimes appears again in the phone after completing "Revelation", and if he it called, the mission is sometimes unlocked again and can be played without using the Newspaper Clipboard.
  • In a livestream interview with Destructoid one week prior to the release of Saints Row: The Third, Steve Jaros, one of the writers of the Saints Row series, confirmed that Dex does not appear in Saints Row: The Third. Jaros further explained that Dex was to appear in another project which "never materialized", and Volition, Inc. did not want to put Dex in the game and alienate players who did not play Saints Row or the Saints Row 2 DLC Corporate Warfare.[21]
    • Dex features in an unreleased spin-off titled Saints Row: Money Shot, where he is shot and killed by Cypher, a professional assassin working for Ultor. The mission is titled "Dex's New Digs". [22] [4]
    • The unreleased Saints Row: Money Shot bridges the gap between the second and third games. If this game is to be considered canon, it means Dex is actually supposed to be dead by the events of Saints Row: The Third and that Troy & Johnny are the only original characters from the first game still alive.
  • In the Saints Row IV mission "A Pleasant Day", Dex is referenced to by The Protagonist's "wife" in a simulation who says that Dex had called round but she didn't recognize him so sent him away. The Protagonist doesn't seem to react to this while he is eating pancakes.[23]
  • Dex's photo along with past characters can be seen in the Saints Row Church in an old virtual version of Stilwater.[24][25]
  • Volition could not locate Jeffery Allen Qaiyum when developing Saints Row 2, so Pierce's voice actor, Arif S. Kinchen, also provided the voice of Dex.[10]
  • In the DLC Enter the Dominatrix for Saints Row IV Donnie references how he knows how Dex feels in reference to being left out of Saints Row (as Donnie was cut from Saints Row IV).
