Rod Dawson (called Rod Makkenrole in older videos) is a recurring character in the YouTube series created and portrayed by himself. Rod made his debut in Who Are We?, but was unnamed. In Why Was I Born?, it was revealed that he actually is Shane's brother.
Rod wears a black tuque and has originally black hair with blue highlights in it. He wears a black-and-white striped tie and a shirt with skulls on it. He has a black stripe under one if his eyes (differs per video).
In Crazy Emo Family, he wears black lipstick. He still wears his black tuque, however, his hair is now pointing out on each sides. His tie is now checkered red and he wears a black blouse with white, vertical stripes. He doesn't have the black stripes under his eyes anymore.
In Why Was I Born?, he unveiled that his dream was to become a guitar god. He was playing Guitar Hero, suggesting that he probably just wants to be the best Guitar Hero player in the world. He hates to be disturbed by Shane.
Emo and suicideEdit
Rod is a stereotypical emo. In Crazy Emo Family, he was about to kill himself, so it can be concluded that Rod tries to commit suicide now and then, however he's still alive. Rod revealed that he likes to write poetry in Who Are We?. He says that he cuts himself, because his dad calls him "a mistake". His favorite colors are blue and red, because it are the colors blood can have.
In older videos, Rod was called Rod Makkenrole, just like how Shane was actually called "Jim Makkenrole". A reason for this is unknown, but Shane probably didn't want to use his real name in the videos and therefore used the last name "Makkenrole".
