Sheriff Dawson is a character that appears in Alone in the Dark III as a minor antagonist.


Nothing is known about Dawson's past prior to the events narrated in the piano song. The only thing related to him is that eleven days and nights after Jed Stone established Slaughter Gulch, he led a group of bandits into the town and pledged their allegience to the city's founder.


He is first mentioned in the piano device in the Salloon when Carnby inserts a coin in it. The Sheriff reappears when Carnby, reincarnated into a montain lion, tries to sneak past him, while being busy whipping a slave. The sheriff is also seen burying Carnby's human body, in the company of Jed Stone and Emily Hartwood. When he sees Carnby emerge from the grave, he cowardly runs away, dropping his Colt. He is not seen since. He also appears briefly in the start of the game when Carnby is about to cross the bridge.


When Carnby is reincarnated into a mountain lion, he must sneak past the sheriff, considering that Carnby is not able to stand a chance against him with his whip. Besides that, he is not encountered directly in battle.
