This character is created by ArashiKagami and is portrayed by Grant Gustin
He was born with a twin brother Sebastian Smythe, due to his family being poor he was forced to live with his aunt. His father left when he was born thus his last name was turned into "Smythe-Pierce". Smythe is his father's middle initial and "Pierce" is his mother's middle initial.
DJ is really sweet and shy, but is slightly a flirt as seen in Skyfall when he asked Chriss to make-out. But mainly he is the complete opposite of Sebastian Smythe. Much like the other glee kids he is very protective of friends. He also has a dark side that nobody else have seen.
He's not afraid of showing his vulnerable side; this is first proven in the episode Opposites Interact when he opened up about not meeting his biological father, then again on Mash Off 2.0 he cried when Franklin disapproved him for Chriss and mainly in (Don't) Be a Hero,Confessions of a New Direction Member and Stay when he was emotional about what happened to Franklin.
