Dev was a teenager from Ankara, Turkey who was a homeless pickpocket.

In June 2019, Sonny gave Dev the name of Devin, claiming Dev to be a nickname. Since Dev was in the country illegally, Sonny protected him by using the cover story that Dev was his cousin and staying with him and his family.

On July 10, 2019, Dev was officially given the false identity of Devin Corbin, the “son” of Brando Corbin, a US Marine who died in Iraq in 2003 but not before marrying a local woman and bringing her back to the US. Dev’s non-existent “mother” is claimed to have died in childbirth and he was raised by his “grandmother”, Gladys Corbin, who is Mike Corbin's cousin, thus establishing his fabricated connection to Sonny.

Dev was really good friends with Josslyn Jacks, Cameron Webber and Trina Robinson in the year and a half he's been in Port Charles.

On January 30, 2020, it was revealed that Dev's "father" Brando was alive and well. Brando knew that Dev was not his son, but he agreed to pretend that he was to keep Dev safe.

On November 23, 2020, Dev died from complications due to his injuries in The Floating Rib explosion and flatlines. The bomb was planted and accidentally set off by Julian Jerome under Cyrus Renault's orders to kill Jason Morgan.


On March 12, 2019, Dev was seen in a Turkish restaurant trying to pickpocket Sonny Corinthos who grabbed him by the arm and stopped him. Dev begged Sonny not to turn him in and when a waiter checked on them Sonny covered for him and said they were just joking around. Afterwards, Sonny got Dev some food and made a deal with him - if he would help Sonny find his son, Dante Falconeri then Sonny would find a way to help him in return.

On March 15, Dev did some recon in Raj Patel's compound and reported back to Sonny on what he saw. He told Sonny he didn't see Raj but he saw a bunch of his bodyguards. Sonny paid him for his help and he also gave him a paper with a number on it and said if he didn't come back by nightfall then he needed to call that number and tell whoever answered where he went. Dev did him one better and went to the compound to pickpocket from Raj's bodyguards as a way to distract them so Sonny could go in.

On March 20, Dev met Agent Robert Scorpio and he told him where Sonny was. Eventually, as Dante and Sonny were going to escape from Raj's compound one of Raj's bodyguards had Dev brought in and eventually Raj told him to eliminate him due to possibly being an informant but Dante and Sonny got into a shootout with Raj and his men which lead to Dante killing Raj in self-defense.

On June 18, Dev broke into Lulu Spencer's house to steal stuff, but he was caught by Josslyn Jacks. She called the cops, but he got away. He later explained that he wasn't the burglar and he stopped the person who was actually robbing her house. He was taken to interrogation and Joss called Sonny. Lulu explains to Det. Harrison Chase that Dev was not the person who broke into her house. Sonny takes him back to his house and says he is staying with Sonny's family. Sonny is going to try to pass him along as his cousin.

On August 21, Dev was working in a coffee warehouse for Sonny and another associate named Barry Ziegler framed him for stealing $10,000. When Sonny got there, Dev was trying to explain that he didn't steal the money but Barry said to check the jacket. Jason Morgan found only $7,000 in there and he and Sonny realized Barry framed Dev. As a result, Barry was given his severance pay, was fired, and was told to relocate.

On August 27, Detective Chase showed up to Sonny's house and asked if they knew anything about Barry's disappearance. Dev lied to Chase and said that Barry was a good guy and had no problems with him.

On September 23, Dev was planning on leaving to Canada after learning that Carly wanted to send him to boarding school and as he was on the Haunted Star he saw a man named Hank Archer with a baby named "Wiley Cooper-Jones". Dev called Sam and said he needed Jason and as he said he was on the Haunted Star Hank knocked him out. Sam arrived on the Haunted Star and saw an unconscious Dev and tried to wake him up but was shocked to see Hank who was holding them hostage. However, after Sam was trying to talk Hank down, Dev and Wiley were eventually released by Hank.

On October 7, Dev told Jason and Sam about Peter August being on the pier carrying a gym bag and how he gave him and Wiley a ride to the hospital.

On October 31, Josslyn and Cameron got drunk at a Halloween party, so Dev and Trina were trying to help them but they got in trouble as well for being "guilty by proxy."

On November 25, all four of them were in detention for Josslyn and Cameron's underage drinking and since they were bored, they all did random things and shared secrets. Dev slipped up and messed up his story of being "Devin Corbin," causing Trina and Cameron to become suspicious. Dev finally confessed his true identity to Trina and Cameron and Josslyn explained the situation to them on how Dev will be deported if they figure out the truth. All four of them agreed to stay silent and never bring it up to anyone.

On New Year's Eve, Dev and Josslyn smashed pomegranates and exchanged gifts before she kissed him. Dev pulled back as he didn't want to be disrespectful, and claimed he didn't feel the same way Josslyn did. Afterwards, an embarrassed Josslyn tried to forget about the kiss.

On January 30, 2020, it was revealed that Gladys' son and Dev's "father", Brando Corbin was alive and well.

On February 17, Dev decided he needed to leave Port Charles since Brando's arrival changes everything. Although Sonny and Carly were against the idea at first, they (along with Brando) agreed that Dev was right and that they'll send him to boarding school. On February 27, however, after Carly found a bullet in Dev's backpack, they later decided that it was best if Dev stayed hidden away in Port Charles so that Sonny can protect them all from Cyrus Renault’s men.

In September, Dev told Brando that he has a crush on Josslyn. He later finds out she has a diary and steals it. He added another page and read it to Cameron. It stated that Josslyn didn’t like Cameron’s kiss the other day.

On November 20, Dev and Cameron were hanging out at the Floating Rib and talking about Josslyn until the former discovered a suspicious package in the restaurant. That package was actually a bomb planted by Julian Jerome under Cyrus' orders to kill Jason Morgan. Moments later, the bomb went off, mortally wounding Dev, who then died from complications after thanking Sonny for everything and asking him to tell Josslyn that he is sorry.

On December 29, 2020, Cyrus blackmailed Brando into working only for him and keeping him safe or Brando’s knowledge of Dev being in the country illegally will be made known to the authorities.

On January 18, 2021, Josslyn Jacks couldn’t find her journal. Cameron says he thought she threw it out. When they are alone, Trina Robinson asks Cameron what he knows about the journal. Cameron confesses that Dev stole Josslyn's journal and then showed it to him. They agree not to tell Josslyn and ruin her memories of Dev but if she asks again they will tell her everything they know.

On April 30, Trina's mother's car breaks down as Josslyn and Trina head to Nixon Falls to pick up Jasper Jacks. After Trina calls for help, Josslyn tells Trina she doesn't know what to do about Cameron who is still accusing Jason Morgan of killing Franco Baldwin. Trina hints that Cameron's relationship with Josslyn had been broken before now but didn't want to elaborate. After Josslyn tries to gets her to explain, Trina admits that Dev stole Josslyn's journal and showed Cameron what was inside it. Josslyn didn't understand why the contents of the journal would upset Cameron but the conversation abruptly ended as a man from roadside assistance arrived.

On June 10, Carly Corinthos tells Cyrus Renault that she brokered an immunity deal for everyone who knew the truth about Dev.

On July 2, Josslyn gets a journal as a graduation gift from Nina Reeves. She remembers her conversation with Trina and accuses Cameron of reading her previous journal. He says Dev read an entry that said he was a bad kisser. Josslyn kisses Cameron to prove him wrong.
