This article is about Dodge from the Netflix adaptation. You may be looking for Dodge from the graphic novels.

See, in the world I come from, the chaos consumes us, and we consume the chaos. But over here, this world has so much potential to be reborn and consumed, to be ruled.


Dodge is one of the two main antagonists (alongside Frederick Gideon's Demon) of the Netflix adaptation of Locke & Key, serving as the main antagonist of the first two seasons, and a posthumous antagonist in the third season while a variant of her serves as the secondary antagonist.

Trapped in the Wellhouse within the host body of one Lucas Caravaggio by the original Keepers of the Keys, she began communicating with Bode when he arrives at Keyhouse Manor. She eventually manipulates him into freeing her with the Anywhere Key, beginning her quest to find the Omega Key and open the Black Door. Upon succeeding, she retrieves Whispering Iron to forge a brand-new key to bring the entire world together under her dominion. At the end of the second season, she is finally killed by Tyler Locke with the newly created Alpha Key. Dodge's destruction finally released the real Lucas who had been trapped inside of his own body by the demon. Dodge had also adopted the persona of Gabe.

In the third season, Dodge is accidentally brought back by Bode using the Timeshift Key, pulling the demon from just before she had forced Duncan to create the Demon Key for her. Possessing Bode's body, Dodge briefly wreaked havoc once more before working with the Lockes against Frederick Gideon, a demon so evil that even Dodge didn't want him to succeed in his plans. Due to a time limit failsafe on the Timeshift Key, Dodge was eventually returned to her own time with no memory of these events, but inadvertently causing Bode's temporary death at the same time.

She is played by Laysla De Oliveira, Felix Mallard, Jackson Robert Scott, and Griffin Gluck.


Departing the Black Door[]

A demon that would eventually become known as Dodge — a nickname Ellie gave to Lucas — first appears twenty-five years prior to Rendell Locke's death. When the Keepers of the Keys open the Black Door for the first time, Lucas Caravaggio was possessed by the demon. At first, everything seemed normal. However, Lucas attacks them later that night, demanding the keys. Rendell has no choice but to kill Lucas after he kills Kim and Jeff, and the group make up a story about how the children died.[1]

The Wellhouse[]

Many years later, in a moment of desperation, Ellie Whedon used the Echo Key to summon Lucas back to the Wellhouse. Unbeknownst to her, she had actually summoned Dodge, who forced her to give her the Identity Key so that she could change her appearance.[1] When the Locke Family moves into Keyhouse following Rendell's death, Dodge begins communicating with Bode, telling him about the magical keys and their powers. She explains that there are keys that allow the user to turn into a ghost or that allow the user to go anywhere. Bode eventually finds the keys, and Dodge tricks Bode into using the Mirror Key, which ends badly and Nina becomes temporarily trapped within the mirror.

When Bode returns to the well to confront Dodge on why she lied, she offers her help in return for the Anywhere Key. She took the key and leaves the wellhouse, leaving Bode to save Nina himself with the aid of Tyler and Kinsey. Her first stop was Seattle, paying Sam a visit.[2] Famished by her imprisonment, Dodge arrived at a diner and wound up ordering the majority of the menu. After she has finished, she visits the restroom, but used the Anywhere Key to burgle numerous luxury items including a dress and a necklace. She encountered a young man and instigates sex with him, asking him to choke her but quickly grows bored by his weak attempt and starts strangling him into unconsciousness.[3]

Impersonating Gabe[]

Around this time, Dodge used the Identity Key to create a new persona, a student named Gabe, to get closer to Kinsey following her assimilation into the Savini Squad.[4] The two began hanging out together and, when she discovers the existence of the keys, she used the Music Box Key to manipulate Eden into embarrassing herself in front of the entire school.[5]

Dodge would later return to Keyhouse to find the Head Key, which she correctly believed to be in Bode's possession. He refused to give her the key, however, and it was revealed that Dodge cannot take the key from a Locke child without their permission, reducing her to threatening to hurt him some other way.[6]

Following this, Dodge — as Gabe — continued filming with Kinsey. When the movie does not go to plan, and Kinsey insists on filming further scenes in the Drowning Caves, Gabe immediately agreed and pressed that it would be a good idea. Arriving in the rocky tunnels, they began investigating the Black Door. Gabe eventually saves Kinsey when the tide rolls in, earning her affection, especially after Scot shouts at her for leading them down there and almost getting them killed.[7]

Gabe Identity Key

With Sam Lesser's arrival mere hours away, Dodge changes her appearance using the Identity Key.

Gabe and Kinsey began dating shortly after, and this caused tensions between Kinsey and Scot, who were also previously dating before the events that occurred in the Drowning Cave. By communicating with him via portrait and deducing his vulnerabilities, Dodge proceeded to enlist Sam Lesser's help again to steal the Head Key from the Locke Children. Believing her to be his only friend, Sam managed to steal the key but was reluctant to give the key to Dodge. Without hesitation, Dodge killed him and took the key for herself.[8]

Seeking Out the Omega Key[]

Dodge then used the key to enter the mind of Erin — one of the original Keepers of the Keys — and found out that the Omega Key was hidden within Rendell's mind.[9] Meanwhile, she took on the appearance of Lucas and lived in Ellie's house, forcing her to help find the Crown of Shadows.

When Ellie tries to return the Crown to the Lockes, Dodge takes it from her and unites it with the Shadow Key that Bode found, allowing her to control shadows. She changed Ellie's appearance to that of her own disguise using the Identity Key. She later attacked Keyhouse and gave the impression that she has been defeated. With Ellie's body unconscious, Gabe arrived with the rest of the Savini Squad to help the Locke Children use the Omega Key to throw her back through the Black Door.[4]

Forging the Demon Key[]

Communion with Eden Hawkins[]

The Lockes were successful in their objective, however, it was later revealed that Dodge was safe and they actually threw Ellie through the door. Moreover, Dodge was currently posing as Gabe through the use of the Identity Key, and had united with another demon that recently possessed Eden Hawkins when the Black Door was open.

Continuing to monitor the demon within Eden Hawkins very closely following their encounter in a restaurant,[4] Dodge disclosed to her the secret of her magical keys. Resolving to make a new key, she guided Eden back to the Drowning Caves to retrieve Whispering Iron. Unfortunately, the two were interrupted by Coast Guard sailors, and Dodge shared the Crown of Shadows with Eden, who summoned the shadows to slaughter them. Dodge and Eden then pulled up into an obscure house in the forest, with a frantic hermit who threatened to shoot them both after seeing Dodge with a shovel. She threatened to take the house as headquarters by force, making him furious, and she proceeded to bludgeon him to death when he refused to begin packing his things. Deciding the house will be suitable after a thorough cleanse, Dodge took to preparing a series of forging tools while Eden buried the hermit's corpse. She also revealed her true appearance to Eden, and when she expressed skepticism that she would turn into someone like Gabe, she explaind that no one will consider him anything more than Kinsey's "nerdy boyfriend". She emphasized that what was given can be taken away, the better to keep a possessed Eden in line.

The fruits of the Savini Squad's labors became prominent when The Splattering launched in theaters, and Dodge went with Kinsey and Eden to view it. Things are calm at first, but when Eden disappeared and murdered the cashier Karl, Dodge angrily demanded they get rid of the corpse. Nina Locke almost caught Dodge and Eden disposing the body, but her inability to remember magic cleared Dodge of suspicion, and the two parted ways. During an after party, Dodge threatened to kill Eden if she misbehaves again.

Some time after, Kinsey Locke's fear monster returned to attack Eden, but Eden caged it in the demons' new headquarters. Using the Whispering Iron and the forge inside the lodge, Dodge and Eden forged a brand-new key together—the Demon Key.[10] In order to see if the key worked as intended, Dodge used it on a fisherman lured to the docking bay after spotting Eden, but it does not do what she intends, instead melting him to a mass of black goo. She resolved to question Chamberlin Locke.[11]

Using the Ghost Key[]

Subsequently, as Gabe, Dodge took Kinsey out to dinner and his girlfriend confirmed she cannot make keys of her own. Things soured at home when Dodge refused to let Kinsey in her head, aggravating her. The following day, Eden suggested getting rid of Kinsey for good, but Dodge rebuked her, presenting the notion as a risk to their plans. Dodge paid Kinsey a visit, bringing Dr. Pepper and Twizzlers, but only Bode was home. She shared them with him and proceeded to encourage him to let the keys help him be his best self. After playing around with the keys for a while, Gabe asked him to let her see the Ghost Key. Bode gave it to her; upon stepping through the Ghost Door, Dodge became a ghost and received her chance to question Chamberlin, who told her the key she forges will reflect the true her, but only if she administers a drop of her own blood.[11] He noticed a mysterious parasite taped to her back, but chose to keep this to himself for the time being.[12]

Feeling distant from Kinsey, Dodge continued work on the new key, noting its impurities to her situational ally, but Eden derisively suspected her love for Kinsey has always been genuine. She then sent Eden to Keyhouse and retrieve the Music Box, to level the playing field by forcing Scot to throw himself at Dodge herself. This created a rift between Scot and Kinsey, as Dodge intended. She and Eden continued forging the improved version of the Demon Key, with Dodge drawing Eden's blood to complete it. Everything went wrong however, when the entire house detonated.[13]

Dodge was enraged of Chamberlin's deception, and confronted him a second time. He revealed his aforementioned perception of the unexplained parasite, expressing he knows of her agenda and signaled the ghost of an old associate to attack her: Sam Lesser. Sam fought Dodge, stating she will not hurt people anymore, and then tried to possess Dodge's physical body, briefly succeeding and trying to enforce a suicide. However, Dodge shoved him back into the door, cursing at him and hurriedly leaving the house.[12]

Fashioning a New Key[]

Dodge visited Keyhouse again and wanders into Kinsey's bedroom, but when she caught her, she was forced to lie and claim that she was tutoring Eden as the girl was allegedly struggling to complete her schoolwork without help. Things became less awkward when Tyler arrives and Bode takes the Anywhere Key to find Rufus. Dodge resolved to seek out another key with Tyler, who enlisted the assistance of Logan Calloway with his possession of the dorms' master key and knew their school like the back of his hand. They found what they were looking for and once Tyler leaves, Dodge called Eden, unaware she was passed out, insisting she was going to Keyhouse with or without her. Arriving on the porch, she greeted Kinsey cordially, unaware the endgame had begun.[14]

Dodge still wound up accompanying Kinsey to Winterfest, but things went awry when Erin Voss ambushed her with the Chain Key, forcing her to kill her in self-defense. Furthermore, Eden repaid her for saving her from getting shot by stopping Voss from killing her. Although she efficiently buried Voss' remains, she remained skeptical that Kinsey knew she was a demon and that she survived the shadow attack.[15]

Dodge's skepticism about Kinsey would be short-lived, however, as Kinsey invited her and Eden over for filming, only to try and shove her into the Wellhouse. Repelling them with the Chain Key, she took Duncan and Bode hostage but refused to let Eden accompany them despite that she had been right all along about the Lockes being onto them. At the cabin, she taunted Duncan of how weak the Lockes were, like her host, Lucas, was. She expressed her belief that the world has untold potential to be exploited and revived, to be brought under demonic rule, her rule. Duncan was disgusted toward Dodge's nature and cold words of his friends, refusing to be part of her plans, so Dodge tightened the grip of the Great Lock's chains on Bode, threatening to suffocate him unless Duncan did as she requested. Duncan reluctantly agreed, and using the Whispering Iron Dodge stole from Josh Bennett, he crafted the working verison of the Demon Key. With the key forged, Dodge brought out Javi, who was captured by Eden earlier as a hostage, to test the Demon Key on, and upon inserting it, turned Javi into a demon sworn to her. Dodge honored her word to free Duncan and Bode for their cooperation, much to their surprise, only to send the possessed Javi after to kill them. The Lockes ultimately managed to escape from Javi; Dodge regrouped with her minion, and while she noted the Lockes knew who she was now, it was irrelevant now that she had what she needed: the power to raise an army of demons to bring the world under her hegemonic banner.[16]

Raising an Army[]

Armistice for Kinsey[]

Dodge brought Javi to a cliffside residence and presumably transmuted those living there to act as her vanguard. With her plans coming underway, she transmuted Jackie Veda and then tried to convince Kinsey to accept her, but Kinsey despised her and claimed that what they had together had always been a lie. Bode cleverly caused a diversion by setting off the fire alarm, and she returned to the cliffside residence to await her response. While she waited, Javi warned her that Eden was conspiring with a schoolteacher named Josh Bennett, only for Eden to kill him. This prompted Dodge to come and speak with Kinsey in person, and when she asserted that her decision was final, Dodge threatened to kill Nina. Meanwhile, Daniel Mutuku took Javi's old job.[17][18]

The Final Battle[]

During the final confrontation with the Lockes, Dodge was stabbed from behind by Tyler with the newly-created Alpha Key, finally killing her. Moments later, the real Lucas emerged from the wreckage of Dodge's house, having been trapped inside of his body by the demon, unable to stop her. With Lucas having returned as an Echo, Dodge's exorcism finally separated them and restored Lucas who, unlike the other demonic hosts, survived the separation as an Echo can't be killed by physical means.[19]


With Dodge out of the picture, Eden took matters into her own hands and plotted to create her own demonic army where Dodge failed. In order to do so, Eden summoned a third demon, Frederick Gideon, as a new Echo.[19]

Displaced in Time[]

After discovering the Timeshift Key, Bode attempts to use it to interact with his father in the past. However, on one trip, Bode inadvertently travels back in time to the night that Dodge had forced Duncan to create the Demon Key. Witnessing Dodge, in the form of Gabe, threatening his uncle and his past self, Bode confronts the demon and informs her that she is going to lose. Using the Identity Key to change back into her female form, Dodge becomes interested in the Timeshift Key and chases Bode through Keyhouse, grabbing onto his leg as Bode returns to his own time. Much to Bode's horror, he has dragged Dodge into the present with him and she uses the Ghost Key to trap Bode as a Keyhouse ghost while possessing his body to blend in while hiding her own.

Dodge forms an alliance with Frederick Gideon to find the keys, although "Bode's" strange behavior quickly draws the suspicions of the Locke family, including Tyler who has Kinsey restore his memories of the magic using the Memory Key and Nina who had Bode use the Memory Key after Dodge's death so that she could remember the magic. Nina discovers Dodge's original body under Bode's bed and finds "Bode's" explanation of its presence strange, especially as the body hasn't decayed at all despite having no pulse or breathing. As Dodge is now in a mortal's body, she is vulnerable rather than being the invulnerable Echo that she was previously.

Having been warned that Gideon was coming with his men at nightfall, Dodge demands the key to the Harlequin Chest from Nina at knifepoint. However, after examining Dodge's body closer, Tyler and Kinsey realize what Dodge did and subdue the demon with the Chain Key. Tyler and Kinsey prepare to send Dodge back through the Ghost Door, but she warns them that Gideon is coming and that Gideon is way more powerful than her, comparing him to a god. Dodge reveals that her true intention is to get the Alpha Key so that she can stop Gideon's plot to merge both of their worlds. Although Tyler is dubious that Dodge would want to stop one of her own kind, she explains that Gideon wants to destroy their world and Dodge happens to like "meatworld."

Before the Lockes can throw Dodge back through the Ghost Door, Gideon seals off all of the exits with the Plant Key and lays siege to Keyhouse. Reluctantly recognizing that they have a common enemy, the Lockes release Dodge to help them against Gideon. However, they refuse to trust Dodge enough to give her the Alpha Key despite the demon insisting that she can get close enough to use it against Gideon. Instead, Dodge is provided with the Angel Key to fight. As Samuel Coffey corners Kinsey, Dodge flies through the window to her rescue and overpowers the Echo before grabbing him and flying Coffey to the Wellhouse. Dodge throws Coffey through the doorway to the Wellhouse, destroying the Echo.

Dodge returns to Kinsey who has injured her ankle and can barely walk. Dodge insists that she wants Gideon gone just as much as they do so that she can enjoy meatworld in peace. Kinsey asks if Dodge will restore Bode once Gideon is gone and Dodge asks if Kinsey really thinks that she wants to be stuck in Bode's body forever. Deciding to trust Dodge, Kinsey gives her the Alpha Key, but orders Dodge to make sure that nothing happens to Bode's body after seeing Bode's injured hand and Dodge promises not to as she leaves. Searching for Gideon outside, Dodge is shot out of the air by Gideon, but she reveals that she has more keys and knows where the rest are. Before Gideon can kill Dodge and Bode's body with her, Tyler provides the demon with the location of the other keys and the key to the chest. Gideon agrees to the deal as long as he gets to see the keys for himself and as he leads Dodge inside, the demon winks at a confused Tyler.

As Gideon and Bolton gather the keys, Dodge removes the Alpha Key which she had hidden from Gideon and prepares to kill the demon with it. However, the Timeshift Key has a failsafe - a time limit for anything that has been displaced from its own time to remain in the present in order to prevent a paradox. As Dodge swings the Alpha Key at Gideon, her time runs out and Dodge vanishes back to her own time, dropping the Alpha Key and losing all memory of her time in the future.

As a consequence of Dodge possessing Bode's body at the time that she is sent back, Bode's body is erased from existence, killing him and leaving Bode trapped as a Keyhouse ghost, something that Dodge had never intended to happen. Bode later finds a way back to life with the help of Chamberlin Locke and Sam Lesser, reversing Dodge's last accidental murder.


Don't think I'm funny? Feel like I'm caring? Kind? I guess it's subjective, so…

–Dodge to Duncan and Bode.

Dodge was an extremely ruthless and cunning demon, relentlessly hunting down all of the keys for the purpose of bringing more of her kind into the world and establish an order dominated by her. While occasionally coming across as a curious, sociable, and even perky with others, this was nothing more than the facade of an amoral psychopath, as shown when she incapacitated and slew two respective men whose trust she had successfully gained rather than incapacitate them, and by her numerous futile attempts to intimidate Bode Locke. She only assisted those if it benefitted her interests, such as befriending and later manipulating Sam Lesser for the sake of molding him as her weapon; then, after stabbing Sam in cold blood, concedes that he meant nothing to her, visibly enjoying his reaction as he succumbed. Even when faced with a paranoid man who threatened her to leave his cabin after seeing Dodge armed with a shovel, Dodge calmy ordered him to leave, then quickly killed him when he attempted to fight back.

Dodge possessed an innate hunger for the keys, especially the Omega Key, leading to unbridled ambition. Dodge would stop at nothing to have these keys, and being imprisoned in a well only made her desire stronger, becoming relentless and desperate in her exile. She embarked on a vicious campaign to achieve her one goal using means such as murder, predation, and reckless destruction to ensure the unity of all the keys in her possession, prominently the Omega Key, and the forging of the Demon Key.

Dodge was vastly intelligent, particularly in the fields of intuition, deception, seduction, and improvisation, which allowed her to use the keys in more formidable ways than others do. Her skills as an improvisational tactician were perhaps the most frequently used. Furthermore, she was careful with how she killed, as she scolded a possessed Eden for killing an employee named Karl at the movie theater, knowing that a corpse would draw attention and blow their cover.

Despite her calculating mind, Dodge has a violent temper when things do not go her way, as shown by her vicious reaction to Bode's realization that she was powerless to forcibly take the keys from a Locke, and again when she stabbed Sam when he turned on her at the last second before demanding for her own unreturned loyalty. When Eden murdered Karl, she reacted in fury over risking their true identities being exposed.

Initially, Dodge was prone to violence, be it to a child bystander or a complete stranger. As time goes one, and the more experience the demon gained, Dodge began avoiding violence if it was unnecessary. This displayed a high sense self-discipline that differed from others of her kind, who were generally violent and aggressive to anyone else, unless she was feeling threatened. When she is, however, her volatile fight-and-flight mode revealed her true colors. Her subterfuge was contrasted with Eden Hawkins, who in her possessed state was unhinged and bloodthirsty, which Dodge found exasperating as her stern companion, thus having very little patience for Eden's antics.

Dodge also appeared to be driven by primal instincts such as hunger, passion, and excitement, the former likely due to the heightened metabolism demon hosts have that requires them to eat more than the average human. She had a childlike curiosity about the world and wound up overeating, burgling, and sleeping with a stranger purely out of excitement from being in the wellhouse for so long. She was also willing to date Kinsey as an apparent ruse, despite risking exposing herself to her enemies. However, her love for Kinsey was later revealed to be genuine, with the demon wanting Kinsey by her side even after Kinsey discovers the truth. Despite this, her affection for Kinsey becomes obsessive in nature, as she makes several threats against Kinsey and her family to make her join by force, with full intention of turning her into a demon like the other victims of the Demon Key under Dodge's control if she agreed.

Despite how evil she was, Dodge had her limits and she wasn't nearly as evil as Frederick Gideon who sought to merge the human and demon worlds which would destroy the human world. As Dodge liked the human world, she sought to stop Gideon using the Alpha Key to the point that she allied herself with the Locke family. Although the Lockes were reluctant to work with their old enemy, Dodge proved herself to be a trustworthy ally in the fight against Gideon, saving Kinsey, doing her best to protect Bode's body and only pretending to betray them. During this time, Dodge showed a more light-hearted side, joking good-naturedly with Kinsey about why she didn't want to keep Bode's body and even shooting a confused Tyler a wink to show him that she hadn't betrayed them to Gideon. Despite their original reservations, the Lockes eventually recognized Dodge as a true ally in their fight with Kinsey coming to trust the demon enough to give her the Alpha Key. This alliance would've resulted in Gideon's death had Dodge's time in the present not run out and caused her to return to her own time.

Powers and Abilities[]

Remember, I'm an Echo; I can't die.

–Dodge to Eden Hawkins.

  • Demoness/Echo Physiology: Dodge displays traits common for her race when they possess humans. She also has a speedy metabolism,[3] but not as strong as Eden Hawkins', as when Eden was gorging on a sandwich, Dodge wasn't snacking at all.[15] Her powers became even stronger as an echo, therefore, she is a spiritual manifestation of a being from another dimension already dead.[1] Hence, Dodge can manifest anywhere that she can generate an echo or in an image that depicts that location, an example of this being when she manifested in places that had images of the Wellhouse. This allowed her to propose an alliance with Sam and antagonize Bode.[6][8] This invulnerability only extended to her being an Echo, however and when Dodge was in a mortal body, she could be killed.
    • Superhuman Strength: Dodge possesses superhuman strength, an example of this being when she incapacitated Gilles, threw a boy onto a subway track, effortlessly listed Eden up despite that both Gilles and Eden are shorter in terms of stature are larger in terms of build, and broke a lock on a glass case. She can also break her enemies' necks easily like with Jeff or Erin. She also repelled a dozen demons forced to attack her simultaneously and incapacitated them in seconds.[3][1][10][15][19]
    • Superhuman Agility: Dodge is more agile and flexible than most people are; while this is not often seen throughout the two seasons, she was able to twist around and backhand Rufus Whedon into a table and execute an awe-inspiring flip to free herself from Sam Lesser's possession and evade a powerful blow from a Demon Key subject.[1][12][19]
    • Superhuman Durability: Dodge's status as an Echo makes her nearly invincible, as she wasn't hurt when Ellie repeatedly shot at her, and she wasn't afraid when the man in the forest pointed a rifle at her.[1][10] She was physically unfazed by an explosion that left Eden shaken (although it should be noted that she had her hand sliced open moments prior).[13] Hence, the Lockes concluded she could not be destroyed by common measures.[4] She also sincerely feared drowning in the sea caves, hugely implying this may be a limit to her virtual invincibility.[7]
      • Self-sustenance: Dodge is able to survive in harsh environments without the essentials for several months, as she remained in the Wellhouse against her wishes for several months despite its derelict condition.[2][1]
    • Enhanced Senses: Dodge possessed enhanced senses that allow her to better navigate her environment.[12]
  • Intelligence: Dodge is a considerably intelligent and complicated being, particularly in the fields of insight, tactics, seduction, intuition, and thanks to the Savinis, she picked up quite quickly on cinematography. Hence, she can easily see right through most lies (aside from the extremely experienced and perceptive Chamberlin Locke) and accurately deduce the truth and the character of most people.
  • Athleticism: Dodge is an excellent cyclist and swimmer.[7][4]
  • Forging: Dodge is very skilled at forging objects from metal; despite Chamberlin claiming she has no chance of making a key, she would've done just fine if she had Locke blood to offer up.[12][16]
  • Willpower: Dodge has tremendous determination and strength of will, adamantly refusing to ever give ground and resign herself to seemingly insuperable odds.[20]


You think you're so clever, but I can be clever too.

–Dodge threatening Bode.

  • Wellhouse: Dodge is notably terrified of being forced through the Wellhouse, as that is the only known way to kill an Echo.[16]
  • Locke family barrier: Dodge, like any other demonic entity, cannot take any Locke's keys through physical force, as she had to come up with various plans to force Bode to give her his keys.[6] As this rule is exclusive for the Lockes, anyone else who has a key on their person, she can physically steal from them.[8][15]
  • Alpha Key: Like all other demons, Dodge could be killed by the Alpha Key which separated Dodge from her host. This was the only thing that could kill Dodge as an Echo, a state that left her otherwise invulnerable.[19]
  • Arrogance: Dodge's other weakness is her overconfidence and arrogance. Hence, she did express some surprise, left temporarily caught off-guard, when an unexpected turn of events caused her plans to not work out the way she intended.[16] Her pompous mood following Sam Lesser's comeuppance caused her to not hide as well as usual, causing Bode Locke to deduce she lived with Ellie Whedon.[9] She also underestimated Rufus, who found her key hidden under a floorboard.[1] However (unlike with Sam and Eden), this weakness of hers was ultimately insignificant, as Dodge's cunning allowed her to effectively compensate for this, mastering almost any situation, and she is quick to recover and use other plans to make up for it.[4][16]
  • Stronger Demons: Dodge was no match for stronger demons such as Frederick Gideon who effortlessly overpowered Dodge in a straight-up fight, forcing her to resort to trickery, allying with the Lockes and the Alpha Key to stop him.

Known victims[]


  • Kim Topher (head cracked on shelves)
  • Jeff Ellis (neck snapped)
  • Neighborhood Kid (thrown in front of a train)
  • Joe Ridgeway (suffocated with a plastic bag)
  • Sam Lesser (stabbed)
  • Hermit (bludgeoned with a shovel)
  • Fisherman (Disintegrated by the first Demon Key; accidentally)
  • Erin Voss (strangled and neck crushed)
  • Samuel Coffey (thrown back into the Wellhouse)

Season One


Season Two
Season Three


  • To date, Dodge appears in every episode (minus The Snow Globe, Free Bird, and Curtain) either using her appearance (as Lucas), her female appearance, or Gabe's appearance. At the end of the first season, she was in possession of the Shadow Key, Anywhere Key, the Identity Key. At the end of the second season, she is deprived of having Lucas as a host, transmuting her into Whispering Iron. At the end of the third season, she is displaced on a timeline.
  • While the keys give her access to additional powers, Dodge has displayed unnatural abilities unrelated to the keys; some powers exist because of either her demonic nature, while others are the result of her being an Echo.
  • Like all demons, Dodge is incapable of physically stealing the keys directly from the Lockes. In order to have the keys from their possession, they have to hand them to her.[6] As this rule is exclusive for the Lockes, anyone else who has a key on their person, she can physically steal from them.[8][15]
  • While the correlation between Dodge and Gabe is cryptic and vague in the first season hugely due to only being known for the last five minutes of the season finale, the second season makes things add up much more.
    • Unlike her comic counterpart, she does appear to have a gender with female pronouns being used. However, for obvious reasons male pronouns have also been used when she is disguised as Gabe.
    • In the second season, Dodge primarily appears in her male form of Gabe. This makes sense since she is without the Identity Key for several episodes and is determined to win Kinsey over by continuing to pose as a male.
    • As revealed in the second season, Dodge's form as Gabe is made up by her and is not a real person as the Identity Key doesn't allow one to take on the form of a real person. Given that she has already been Lucas and already been herself, she can swap these appearances at will.
  • Laysla De Oliveira enjoyed the challenge of playing a female villain since she had few experiences with unapologetic women in villainous roles.[21]
  • Dodge's death is similar to the comics' version of the character's death with both being killed by Tyler Locke with the Alpha Key. The one major difference is that Lucas survives his separation from Dodge in the Netflix adaptation, unable to suffer the fatal effects of the Alpha Key as an Echo.
