Dexter Charming, fully named Dexterous Charming, is a 2013-introduced and all-around character. He is part of a fairytale yet to be revealed, since many stories are in need of a Prince Charming, and he is a student at Ever After High. In the destiny conflict, he is on the Royal side because of family loyalty and expectations. Dexter is the younger brother of Daring Charming, another Royal, and older twin brother of Darling Charming, a Rebel. Somewhat ironically, Dexter is jealous of his brother's ability to impress any girl, unaware that he himself possesses an enchanted gaze that makes girls swoon. The effect is broken when his gaze is not immediate, like when he wears his glasses. Having a knack for technology, Dexter is often asked to help his fellow students when their MirrorPad or other gadget stops working.
Dexter is shy and tentative. He is friendly, but unlike his brother, he is not very suave or charismatic. This becomes even more pronounced when he talks to Raven Queen, whom he has a crush on, one on one.
Dexter has brown hair, baby blue eyes and wears a small crown. He also wears glasses.
He is the son of King Charming and brother of Daring and Darling Charming. According to The Storybook of Legends, he is nine months younger than Daring, while The Unfairest of Them All notes that he is the older twin brother of Darling. While he and Daring can have a good time in each other's company, their relation is burdened by their father favoring Daring. Dexter gets along better with Darling, not just because she is his twin, but because they both have doubts about the destinies laid out for them and only trust each other to share these doubts with.
Dexter often hangs out with the other Royals, in particular his brother and Blondie Lockes. He helps the latter with the technical parts of her MirrorCast show and sometimes acts as cameraman. He does not have particular interaction with any Rebels except for Hunter Huntsman, who is his roommate and also has fallen in love outside of his story, and C.A. Cupid, who's always there to help him and vice versa.
Dexter's pet is a jackalope who goes by the name Mr. Cottonhorn.
Dexter has a crush on Raven Queen, but has trouble expressing himself, in part because he isn't supposed to like her that much. She has only recently become aware of his crush on her, which she responded positively to. As of yet, though, the two haven't been able to talk it over. C.A. Cupid has a crush on Dexter, but he is unaware of that. He sees her as a precious friend.
