Unknown to the duo, Shelly had eaten a contaminated chicken nugget, which had began to take affect on her. The bullying ceases when the substitute teacher, Clint Hadson, walks into the room. Along with Patriot, Dink torments Clint, calling him a c**t. However, when Clint doesn't do anything back, Dink urges Patriot to tug on Shelly's pigtails, resulting in the latter biting into Patriot's cheek, infecting him with the virus.

Dink manages to interrupt her long enough for her scratch his cheek, infecting him with the virus. He then dashes around the playground, scratching and biting unsuspecting children and infecting them.

Before the infection, Dink was a bully and not very studious, as shown when Calvin mentions he would cheat off of his tests. He seems to be a follower of Patriot and very uncreative, as when he was bullying Shelly, he would always end his insults with "... my a**!" With what friends he had, he seemed to care about them as he confronted Shelly when she bit Patriot. After his infection, he became a savage follower of Shelly, doing her dirty work as she tried to find a way to escape the school.
Dink has pale skin, brown eyes, and bright blond hair. After being infected by Shelly, who left a scratch on his left cheek, blisters grew over his face and he developed heavy eye bags. Throughout the course of the film, blood from his victims stain his skin and his clothes. He is seen wearing a neon yellow sleeveless shirt and blue jeans.
