Dembe is a recurring character in the NBC series, The Blacklist.
Dembe is a former freedom fighter from South Sudan, who at some stage was trafficked by the Eberhardt Cartel and Red facilitated his escape. It was assumed that he was Red's bodyguard.
There are confirmed reports that Dembe was with Red in Sierra Leone and Brussels, Belgium. Other reports place him and Red in Murmansk and Belfast.
He answers the phone in Haiti when Liz calls to advise Red that Lorca's trial has been abandoned.
He drives Red's limousine to Stanley R. Kornish's cabin after stopping to buy meat.
He drives Liz and Red to the location where Nelson is buried. He performs CPR on Nelson.
He is with Red when Liz arrives to ask Red about Max Ruddiger. He accompanies Red while he makes a new deal with Max Ruddiger, possibly to intimidate Max, as during the negotiations he stands behind Max.
He is surprised when Liz walks past the car, when Red is on the way to Cuba.
He held a gun on Nathanial Wolff while Red stole the USB drive containing the United States currency program.
Garrick's men capture him separately from Red. After shooting Luli, Garrick points a gun to Dembe's head to force Red to get out of the box. Red pleads with Harold to give him the code which he refuses. Red then tries to revive Ressler to extract the code from him but he is unconscious. Dembe urges him to say goodbye. They recite Al-Ikhlas, a chapter from the Qur'an together and the screen faded in black with a gun shot sound.
