Shapeshifter and can shift to a fox and a peregrine falcon. In the fifth book (Stirring the Storm), he can shift into an sea otter.

He is described as having brown eyes and red-brown hair.

His best friend is Gideon Reader (at the Cola Club), and Clive (at Bark's End). He is also friends with Lisa Hardman and Mia Cooper (at Cola Club). He is also related to Spook Williams

His father, Robert Jones, is an oil worker who is often away from home, leaving Dax with his step-mother Gina and his half-sister Alice. His father does not take much interest in him in the first four books, but in the fifth book he reveals why. Not much is known about his mother apart from her name Anita. She, against the rules of the senders, left Dax a cleftonique to contact the Quorat. It is known from Dax and Spook's time looking for the 'corridor' in Stirring the Storm that he has a Aunt and Cousin from the Quorat that are also shapeshifters. His aunt (Hessa) was shown to be a red bat-like creature. His Cousin (Carra) while also a shapeshifter did not show her forms.

Due to being able to shift into a fox, then pereguin falcon and most recently an otter, he is able to sense people's emotions, and Patrick Wood's attempts to charm people (including himself). His eye-sight is better than most peoples, and he can smell fear. He is immune to glamour illusions (all he can see is a shimmering in the air where the illusion is).

He can make also telepathic contact with Lisa, which is strongest when he is in fox form.
