According to Vanessa's friend Susan, Gary should have picked her up after Vanessa was killed. However, it is revealed that Dylan has been captured and turned by the vampires.
Before The Rising, Dylan lived in an apartment with her mother, who had separated from Dylan's father. It is unclear whether she and Vanessa left Denver for Seattle, or if her father left Seattle for Denver.
She had a loving but strained relationship with both parents, primarily because she could sense their lies. She has also witnessed Vanessa's tendency to pick fights firsthand; though Dylan would beg her mother to stop, Vanessa seemed to ignore her during these times.
Dylan is watching the news report of a volcano eruption in Yellowstone National Park and awaiting her mother's return in the waiting room of a clinic. She is under the impression that her mother is there for a job interview, when in reality, she's there selling blood for money. At a diner, they discuss birthday plans, her mother decides they should go home and eat cake and the following morning they'd go shopping. That night, she is forced to witness her mother being attacked by an unknown assailant, she cries out to her mother multiple times as she bleeds out in the middle of the floor.

After waking up from her death coma three years later, Vanessa encounters Susan, who has become a vampire and a member of Julius' group. She tells Vanessa that she killed Dylan, but this was only a ploy to goad Vanessa into fighting her. After being cured, Susan tells Vanessa that on the night Vanessa supposedly died, Dyan came to her apartment, terrified and covered in blood. After Dyan told her what happened with the assailant/vampire, Susan took the child into her apartment, blocked the door and called 911. While they waited for the police to arrive, Susan called Dylan's father to inform him of what had happened. After the police arrived, they took custody of Dylan and most likely gave her to child's services until her father could arrive to collect her. When the vampires started attacking everywhere, Susan tried to find out what had become of Dylan, but was turned before she had a chance to learn anything. Continue Reading Here....

Dmitri then takes her to his base of operations, where Vanessa finally finds Dylan while hunting Rebecca. However, when Dylan turns around, Vanessa discovers that her daughter has become a vampire.

Dylan was smart and seemingly practical. She could tell when her parents were lying to her, but usually chose to play along. She understood the ramifications of a volcanic eruption over her mother, reminding Vanessa that the "pretty black snow" was toxic ash and that they should stay indoors until the rain washed it away.
She had a close relationship with her mother, but decried Vanessa's tendency to pick fights, presumably because she has witnessed her mother get into altercations before and feared for Vanessa's well-being.
She possesses the typical abilities associated with all vampires, such as advanced speed, strength, longevity, etc. She has yet to display any these abilities, however, due to her vampire status, the only conclusion to be made is that she possess these powers.
