Sheriff Dewey Riley is the main deuteragonist of the Scream series. He's best known for trying to protect his little sister, Tatum Riley, and her best friend, Sidney Prescott, during the first murder spree. He flirted with Gale Weathers and was nearly killed by Ghostface. When another killing spree started at Windsor College, Dewey rushed there to once again protect Sidney and stop the killers. He reconnected with Gale and was almost killed once again. When it looked, as if Sidney was in danger again, Dewey left Woodsboro for Hollywood , where he involved himself in the Stab 3 set. He investigated this killing spree as well and assisted in saving Sidney from Ghostface . When it was all over, he proposed to Gale. They were married and had after that a few peaceful years, until another killing spree started. Dewey was now Sheriff of Woodsboro and had a deputy named Judy Hicks. He, Gale, and Judy then saved Sidney's life once again and it was (probably) all over.
