Dave Dean was an undersea diver active during the 1940's. He was diving in China's South Sea with the aid of his friend Fred "Shorty" Baxter. While attempting to collect pearls, he would be attacked by the "Deep Sea Demon" and be forced to surface. Struck with the bends, he would be nursed back to health by yacht owner Phillip Blackwood, and Janet Winslow. Dean would suspect the nearby Wing Po of the attack, until one of his own divers surfaced dead.
