“Nothing makes me happier than a shiny bald Stina.”

Dex Dizznee, in Book 1: Keeper, on page 150

Dex and Stina, or Dexina, is the romantic/friendship pairing of Dexter Dizznee and Stina Heks. Stina is constantly mean to Sophie in the earlier books and becomes nicer in the later books. This could be because she is jealous of Dex's crush on Sophie but becomes nicer after Sophie and Dex decide that they aren't right for one another. Stina and Dex play many pranks on one another, showing that they are very comfortable with one another. They have very strong emotions for one another (hate is just the flip-side of love). And who knows, maybe what appears to be hate could actually be love.

Other Names Edit

  • Stinex (Stin/a and D/ex)
  • Dexina (Dex/ and St/ina)
  • Dina (D/ex and St/ina)
  • Team Dizznee-Heks (Dex /Dizznee/ and Stina /Heks/)
  • Heks Dizznee (because Heks rhymes with Dex and Dex's last name is Dizznee)
  • Destina (De/x and /Stina)

Similarities Edit

  • Both have families with bad reputations (Dex's father is Talentless and his parents were a bad match and Stina's parents should have been a bad match and her father faked having an ability).
  • Both are elves.
  • Both attend Foxfire.
  • Both are the same age.
  • Both enjoy playing pranks on one another, showing that they are comfortable with one another.
  • Both have manifested an ability (Stina as an Empath and Dex as a Technopath).
  • Both have parents who are involved with the Black Swan.

Differences Edit

Moments Edit

Keeper of the Lost Cities Edit

  • Stina very strongly dislikes Sophie. This could be because she is jealous that Dex likes Sophie. This is supported by the fact that Stina becomes less hostile to Sophie after the Dexphie ship sinks.
  • Dex and Stina are comfortable enough with each other to play pranks on one another
  • Dex creates an extra special and fast-working elixir to grow back Stina's hair so that she doesn't have to attend Foxfire bald (admittedly, Dex was the reason she lost her hair and. he was forced to create the elixir, which also gave Stina a beard.)
  • Stina goes to the trouble of finding a muskog to put in Dex's locker (maybe it was meant as a kind gesture and Stina is just really bad at picking out presents. After all, Dex seems like the type of person who would love a pet muskog.)
  • Stina is nicer to Sophie in the later books, possibly because Dex is now far less likely to become Sophie's boyfriend.

Keeper of the Lost Cities: Exile Edit

  • After seeing Sandor, Dex comments that Stina looks scared and makes fun of her by asking if she wet herself. Stina's immediate reply to him is that she doesn't talk to trash. This could be from embarrassment as it is a defensive way to speak.
  • Dex tells her that she'd better be nice to him because he'd hate for her to have exploding farts during the opening ceremonies. Stina then threatens to boot him to Exillium.
