Dusty Kenny Hawks is the main protagonist of Danganronpa: Time for Death and a student of Zodiac High School. He is the Ultimate Guitarist. He was once in a band back in Massachusetts called The Three Boy Band. The two other members are a drummer and a singer.


Dusty is a slim, pale boy with short, spiky black hair and red eyes. He wears a purple t-shirt with a black music note on it, black jeans with pockets on his hips, and white sneakers with light gray shoelaces.


Dusty is an independent, smart and friendly student. He wasn't the brightest back in his school in Massachusetts but he knows how to play the guitar more than anyone else.

He loves rock music and hot chili. But he's not as a big fan of grapefruit than you think is. His love for rock music is how he got to playing the guitar.

Past Life

Back in Boston, Massachusetts, Dusty went to school where students were mostly bullied. He was one of those easy target because when he was 14, he was shy and mostly a coward. His greatest fear was public speaking.

Until one day, Dusty saw a flyer in his school for a boy band in need of a guitarist. He's been playing the guitar since he was 10 so he signed up and became a member of The Three Boy Band.

However, he quit the band because he was going to Zodiac High School.

Killing Game Semester

Prologue - Welcome to Zodiac High School

Dusty was first introduced being woken up inside a bedroom, trying to remember what was going on and what he was doing. The last thing he remembered doing was transferring to a new school and got knocked out after he entered the building. Then he heard the speakers go off and heard a squeaky female voice go off, saying to meet in the PE Room.

When he got to the PE room, there were 15 other students there. The first person to speak when they saw him was Hilda Graham, the Ultimate Hacker. After standing around as everyone was introduced, Bruce decided that everyone should discuss where everyone was here in the first. As Dusty was looking for someone to talk to, he saw a girl named Rena Ryan, the Ultimate Vlogger. Dusty had a crush on Rena when he first saw her.

After trying to talk with Rena, Monoyukki appeared and introduced herself and explained the killing game. After the meeting, Dusty was afraid if he could survive the killing game or not.

Chapter 1 - Surfs Up

Daily Life

The next day, Dusty woke up to Monoyukki making an announcement that was time to get breakfast. He didn't get much sleep last night because he heard a weird knocking sound last night in his bathroom. When he got to cafeteria, he saw Hilda, Sam and Elliot already getting breakfast. Hilda noticed Dusty and greeted him. Elliot noticed that Dusty was still tired and asked if he was okay.

Dusty explained the noises in his room as he grabbed a tray and got in line behind Sam. After hearing other's experiences, he questioned why was everyone being haunted.

After breakfast, Dusty explored the school with Sam, Rena, Suzanne and Amy. First they went into the Music Room and was admiring an electric guitar displayed in a case inside the classroom. Then joined the group when Rena found writing on one of desks.

Next, they went into the Science Lab where Aaron was playing around with the chemistry equipment. Nothing happened except for Suzanne asking if he was okay and Aaron replied. After that, they went into the computer lab where Hilda was reprogramming one of the desktops, but there was no internet connection. Monoyukki explained there is no internet because she doesn't want the students to get in contact with their parents. Dusty complained about Monoyukki being in their business.

Dusty left the computer by himself and went into the Poetry Class and saw Ryder sketching a dog and Elliot solving some math equation he made. Dusty complimented Ryder's art, trying not to distract Elliot.

Then, Dusty went into the pool and saw Jasper, Blue, Jade and Maple in the pool. Jasper called out to Dusty and asked him to join them in the pool. Dusty said that he would get in later and left the pool. Finally, he went into the Math Class and saw Ginger, Bruce and Alex in there. Dusty sat next to Ginger and found an old math textbook in the one of the desk. Before he could look at it, Monoyukki called to give out the first motive.

After the first motive, Dusty decided to go in the pool with Jasper, Blue, Jade and Maple. After Jasper left, Dusty went to his room and took a nap but didn't fall asleep because he heard the same knocking noises in his bathroom like from last night. So, he left his room and saw Ginger shaking outside the cafeteria. When he went to Ginger what wrong, he saw Jasper's corpse under a table.

Deadly Life

After everyone went into the cafeteria when the corpse alert was given out, Dusty and Sam investigated the corpse and found a note in Jasper's hand which Dusty gave to Elliot. After Elliot solved the puzzle, Sam, Elliot and Dusty went into the Music Room and saw that the guitar was missing. Him and Sam explained about the guitar to Elliot and decided to look for it. They found it but it was split in half. Rena then ran up to the boys and said she found the guitar strings. After he fixed the guitar, everyone went back to investigate. After finding minor clues and discussing them with the others, Dusty got more worried because they only had a few minutes left. He saw that Ryder and Elliot's work in the Poetry Class is still on the chalkboard. After Elliot talked about how people never understand him, Monoyukki called the students to the elevator to start the class trials.
