|Character of Regents Walk|
Demyan Westerburg is a fictional character in the Regents Walk comic series. He is one of the Westerburg family's many adopted children, and comes from Russia.
A student at Widow's Perch Elementary, Demyan has wavy brown hair and is a little socially awkward, as he tries a little too hard to fit in. The Westerburgs didn't adopt him directly from Russia; like Indira he has gone through more than one foster home in the United States before he ended up in Widow's Perch. He has a fairly good grasp of the English language, but still has some learning to do.
Big Blue (Chapter One)
He first appears during the comic's first cafeteria scene, where all first grade classes converge and he frequently sits near Indira. Those nearby learn that their mother often makes them peanut butter and jelly sandwiches; he's the only one that likes it crunchy.
About the same age as his younger sister Indira, he's protective of her whenever he can be, especially on the playground.
- He is the first side character in the same grade as all the major characters that has a line in the comic.
