Rex (as played by Winter) first appeared on July 8, 2002. Rex and his twin sister Cassie were discovered half-naked during a meteor shower and were originally suspected to be aliens. As time went on it was discovered that they were the children of Andre DiMera (who at the time was impersonating his cousin Tony DiMera) and Marlena Evans but this turned out to be false. In reality a sperm sample was somehow taken from Roman Brady during his years of captivity at the hands of Tony's father Stefano DiMera and combined with eggs taken from Kate Roberts who was a prostitute and associate of Stefano's. Rex and, to a lesser extent, Cassie seemed to have super human intelligence. Rex also suffered mysterious mood swings and psychotic tendencies during Salem Stalker storyline. He dated Mimi Lockhart but they broke up when Rex discovered Mimi aborted his baby without telling him about it. Feeling hurt and betrayed, Rex left town following the abortion on July 26, 2005, coinciding with Winter's departure from the show.
In 2018, Rex is first seen greeting his father Roman Brady at the Brady Pub. He later catches up with his mother Kate and reveals he is getting married. Kate is taken aback and apprehensive about it. Rex also catches up with Brady Black and half-brother Eric Brady. His fiancee Sarah Horton joins him in town, but Rex soon realizes that Mimi is in town and it is revealed that he and Mimi slept together while he was with Sarah. A curious and heart broken Sarah broke off the engagement and Rex also learned that he was the father of Mimi’s child, Emily Lockhart. Rex left town to spend time with his daughter, but soon came back to town, wanting a second chance with Sarah. Things with Sarah didn't work out and he knew that she was in love with Eric. Rex eventually left town again. Rex is scene again in April 2020, greeting Sarah Horton, who is on the run with Kristen and Brady's baby, Rachel Black, whom she originally thought was her baby Mackenzie Horton. After an altercation, Sarah informs Rex that she is gonna continue to run away with the baby, to which Rex says hes gonna call the police. Sarah panics and hits Rex over the head, knocking him out. When Rex wakes up, Sarah has his tied up to a chair.
Rex is mentioned on October 12, 2017, when his mother Kate mentions that Dr. Rolf genetically engineered him and Cassie Brady.
