Dean grins at the old priest. "Every man dies, but not every man truly lives. Was it Jesus or Conan who said that?" Dean is a big bald African American guy wearing worn work pants and a denim vest. After turning Latent, his skin faded from rich chocolate to ashen grey with black lines of sinew here and there making his status obvious to anyone with eyes to see, even if he didn't have "LATENT AND PROUD" stenciled on front and back of his vest.

He paused, look at his spliff, then couldn't help but giggle a little. "How about 'Let's Blow This Joint?'"
