Damon Dawson is Micah's cousin.
When Micah first comes to stay with his family, Damon bullies him by taunting him and waking him with splashes of water to the face. Later, Damon complains about missing a wrestling match on pay-per-view. Micah uses his technopathy to get the match for free that night. Thankful, Damon grants Micah a "stay of execution."
Three weeks prior to the events of season two, Micah and Damon are at D.L.'s funeral. Micah is looking fondly at his father's medal of valor which was awarded to D.L. for his firefighting duties. Damon rudely interrupts by asking Micah if he could play with it. Monica slaps Damon on the head and tells him not to ask Micah that.
