Simon Masrani
"The key to a happy life is to accept you are never actually in control."
Played By: Irrfan Khan

Appearances: Jurassic World | The Evolution Of Claire

"Jurassic World exists to remind us how very small we are. How new. You can't put a price on that."

The head of Masrani Global Corporation and the son of one of John Hammond's close friends. Following Hammond's death in 1997, Masrani decided to buy InGen and work to bring the original dream of Jurassic Park to fruition. As a result, Jurassic World was opened on Isla Nublar in 2005 and has been a secure success since then.

  • Admiring the Abomination: He's both terrified and captivated by dinosaurs, especially the genetic hybrid Indominus rex.
    Claire: Think it'll scare the kids?
    Masrani: The kids? This'll give the parents nightmares.
    Claire: Is that... good?
    Masrani: It's fantastic.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He's dressed in a flashy business attire, and pilots a chopper to assist in personally stopping the I. rex.
  • Benevolent Boss: To the point that he tells Claire that he thinks she focuses too much on her work and needs to relax a little. Even irritable cynic Owen seems to like him, understanding his motivation better than Hoskins.
  • Big Good: Acts as this of the fourth film.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: As Hammond's hand-picked successor, he adopts Hammond's "Spare no expense" philosophy.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite being dressed in flashy suits and being an Expy of John Hammond as an eccentric and benevolent Honest Corporate Executive, he is also a Reasonable Authority Figure and a helicopter pilot, who himself attempts to stop the I. rex from causing bloodshed and dies for it.
  • The Coats Are Off: Removes his grey coat when he decides to pilot the helicopter to kill the Indominus rex.
  • Decomposite Character: The second half of a decomposite of John Hammond. Masrani is the benevolent businessman who owns the island and the "Jurassic X" franchise. He is also a major fan of the very idea of an island full of dinosaurs who nerds out over his new exhibits, just like Hammond.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Dr. Wu quickly points out to Masrani that he signed off on the creation of a badass new carnivore with a variety of intimidating features but never stopped to properly consider what kind of predator such attributes would create. Despite the later reveal of Wu's ulterior motives, he's still got a point.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Not with cars — with helicopters. His piloting is bumpy enough that his poor instructor is seen being physically sick in the bushes after a particularly bad landing. Amazingly, while he does die in a helicopter crash, it wasn't because of his piloting skill (or lack thereof).
  • Establishing Character Moment: arrives via helicopter. Unfortunately, he was the one flying it and is still training, so when he takes Claire to the new Indominus rex paddock, its movements are a little jerky. While impeccably dressed and clearly filthy-rich, he's genuinely polite and friendly to everyone. He also references John Hammond, not worrying too much about the rising costs of the park so much as making sure the guests are entertained. He even mentions how Hammond "entrusted me with his legacy," and obviously wants to honor Hammond's original dream.
  • For Happiness: Like Hammond before him, Masrani wants to use Jurassic World to fascinate and delight people, and is more concerned with whether or not his guests are enjoying themselves and having fun than he is with profits. He also makes sure to ask if the animals are happy, too.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Seems to see himself as one, seeing as he wants to know if the animals are happy as well as the park's guests, and claims that he can tell they're happy just by looking into their eyes. Sadly, this doesn't save him when the I. rex sics a bunch of very unhappy Pteranodons on him.
  • Frontline General: Considers himself this, and points it out to the security team when, as the only (semi) trained pilot available, he personally pilots the attack helicopter that goes after the I. rex.
    Masrani: Did you boys serve in the armed forces?
    Soldier: Afganistan, sir!
    Masrani: Did your general ever ride into battle with you?
  • Genre Blind: He thinks that the I. rex's situation should be kept a secret so that she won't cause a panic in a highly populated park, and asserts that the ACU's track record hasn't failed them before. Clearly, he should have prepared for the worst.
  • Hidden Depths: The Chaos Theory Mode storyline for Jurassic Park III in Jurassic World Evolution 2 (which may or may not be considered canon) presents Masrani as being considerably more arrogant, entitled and less benevolent than he appears in the film, there are also the implications of his claim to be fullfilling John Hammonds dying wish despite that it conflicts with the fact that when Hammond was last seen he was campaigning against the building of a second park and recapturing the dinosaurs.
  • Honest Corporate Executive: Much like Hammond before him, Masrani sincerely wants to delight people who come to his dinosaur theme park, with profit being a peripheral motive. When he asks Claire how the park is doing, she starts to responds with profit margins, but he restates that he actually wants to know if the visitors and animals are happy. While his company certainly is involved in some amoral endeavors, the sheer magnitude of his wealth and size of his Mega-Corp mean that he can't possibly be aware of everything that goes on under his banner, a fact that Hoskins acknowledges ("He's so diversified, he probably doesn't even know half of the crap he owns!"). Later, when the I. rex is revealed to be far deadlier than necessary for a family park, he refuses to turn a blind eye to Wu's research and calls for an investigation. Then he goes in the helicopter with the machine gunner and the co-pilot to stop the I. rex. It doesn't exactly work too well, but he gives it a good try.
  • Hypocrite: He dismisses Claire's requests to make some budget cuts to Jurassic World quoting that John Hammond said "Spare no expenses". However, he refuses to let the Indominus rex be killed off when she breaks free, claiming that they have $28 million invested in her. It takes some more losses thanks to the Indominus before he finally changes his mind.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Realizes much faster than anyone else that the I. rex simply cannot be allowed to escape. He does not hesitate to order that the main door to its enclosure be shut, even though there are people inside that the I. rex will kill if they can't get out. The hesitation by the people ordered to close the door bears this out; their concern for the people inside meant the door had not fully closed by the time the I. rex reached it, and that small gap was all the creature needed to force its way out.
  • Nice Guy: Quite possibly the nicest character in the franchise. He promised Hammond on his deathbed that he'd make his dream a reality, is friendly to his staff, makes it his top priority to make sure they're all safe and the first thing he asks Claire when they meet at the beginning of the film is whether or not the guests and animals are happy. The only time he gets angry is towards Vic Hoskins and later Henry Wu for their involvement in the I. rex's rampage.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: While piloting the helicopter to hunt down the I. rex, he accidentally chases the I. rex towards the Aviary, causing the I. rex to break in and scare all the pterosaurs out of their enclosure. The Pteranodons and Dimorphodons subsequently killed Masrani and his crew, and then proceed to swarm upon the tourists gathered around the main plaza.
  • Non-Idle Rich: He's super rich (In-Universe, the eighth richest man in the world), and yet still manages the time to visit the park while earning his wings.
  • The Promise: He mentions at one point that he promised Hammond on his deathbed that he would run the park right. Ten years of the park running without incident (and sparing no expense) show that he did a good job fulfilling it until the events of the film.
  • Properly Paranoid:
    • Unlike Claire, he immediately picks up that things with the I. rex are not right: her paddock's walls had to be extended, she has to be fed with a crane since she almost ate her human feeders (and they threatened to quit), she ate her sibling, and she tried to break the glass of the viewing wall, which is why he asks that Owen be brought in for a second opinion about her security.
    • When Wu becomes all defensive and unrepentant about the I. rex, Masrani gets suspicious and tells him that he's ordering all work at Hammond Labs to be suspended pending an investigation.
  • Rank Scales with Asskicking: Pilots a helicopter to stop the I. rex, but goes down in the attempt.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Spends the whole film in a pink dress shirt.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's very reasonable in judgment and is willing to listen to his employees even if there are problems. In The Evolution of Claire, he aspires to the Bright Minds interns to ask questions about the park and the dinosaurs, no matter how silly they might seem.
  • Sacrificial Lion: He goes down in his helicopter trying to stop the I. rex from causing havoc.
  • Stunned Silence: Masrani is already getting cold feet on the I. rex when he sees the construction workers building higher walls, a cracked window in the viewing pen, and the Indominus rex itself. It's when Claire tells him that the I. rex ate her sibling that he becomes stunned, and the expression on his face shows a justified worry of their new attraction and the enclosure containing it.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He fills almost exactly the same role as Hammond did, albeit Simon is younger and more successful in realizing the fruition of Hammond's dream.

Jurassic World

Head Management


Claire Dearing
Dubbed By: Barbara Beretta (European French)

Appearances: Jurassic World | The Evolution Of Claire | Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom | VelociCoaster | Jurassic World Dominion

"Every time we unveiled a new attraction, attendance has spiked. Corporate felt genetic modification would up the wow factor."

A park operations manager at Jurassic World, and the aunt of Zach and Gray.

  • Action Dress Rip: Perfoms one mid-way through the film.
  • Action Girl: Subverted in a fairly awesome way; Claire actually gets fairly little action in Jurassic World, except when she saves Owen from a rogue Dimorphodon, but the film emphasizes her intelligence over her physical strength, meaning that if she gets a moment of awesome, it's usually because she uses her brain as opposed to strength. Releasing the T. rex, for example.
    • Played a bit more straight in Fallen Kingdom, as she's a bit more experienced this time around.
    • She upgrades to this fully in Dominion, best displayed in her fight with Soyona Santos. She wins the fight with her.
  • Action Survivor: She manages to survive the whole ordeal despite not being trained for it.
  • Adrenaline Makeover: She goes from sharply dressed to a disheveled mess due to the traumatic events she goes through.
  • Badass Driver: The beginning of Dominion shows her driving through a herd of stampeding ceratopsids to successfully escape the illegal breeders.
  • Battle Couple: Claire and Owen fall in love after years of fighting prehistoric hazards together.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Owen with her obvious attraction to him. They start dating again eventually.
  • Big Damn Heroes: When Owen's Velociraptors are clearly losing against the I. rex, Claire has Rexy unleashed and lures her to fight I. rex in an epic showdown.
    • Happens in the climax of Fallen Kingdom when Owen and Maisie are hanging on the ledge on the roof and cornered by the Indoraptor. Claire distracts it enough so that Owen can pull him and Maisie up.
  • Break the Haughty: Leaving her clean and controlled "behind-the-scenes" management area for the wild and savage parts of the island fails to have this effect on her, as she steps up to the challenge instead.
  • Bloodless Carnage: A non-fatal variant. When the Indoraptor puts one of his sickle claws on Claire's lower leg trapped underneath a fallen tree trunk in Lockwood Manor, she screams violently in pain, but there's no blood to be seen.
  • Character Development: During the I. rex fiasco, Claire comes to see that dinosaurs aren't just "numbers on a clipboard" or "assets", but living creatures with feelings. Over the course of the film, she also grows from distant towards her nephews (but still intent on spending time with them at some point, her schedule and her strict adherence to it was in the way) to prioritising them above all else, growing to appreciate the family she has, regardless of whether or not she has kids of her own. In between the first Jurassic World and Fallen Kingdom she founds and heads an animal rights group advocating for the dinosaurs on Isla Nublar to be treated as an endangered species and relocated to escape the soon-to-erupt volcano.
  • Clothing Damage: She suffers quite a bit in Jurassic World, as her business dress and skirt get torn and filthy during the movie.
  • Combat Stilettos: Despite Owen complaining about her "stupid shoes", she never drops the high heels. It wasn't easy on the actress' ankles. But it's all worth it when she outruns the T. rex in them.
    • Averted in Fallen Kingdom, as this time she had time to dress herself appropriately and equipped a nice pair of leather boots before venturing again on Isla Nublar.
    • Also averted in Dominion, when she probably hasn't worn anything but hiking boots for four years.
  • Composite Character: Of John Hammond and Alan Grant. Hammond for his business acumen and enthusiasm about Jurassic Park/World. Doctor Grant in terms of Grant's Character Development being mirrored by her struggle to find her nephews.
  • Control Freak:
    • Resents any suggestion that runs counter to her decisions or any questioning of her ability to handle the crisis with the Indominus.
    • She also apparently turned up to the disastrous date with Owen with an itinerary. Yes, really.
  • Cool Aunt: Double Subverted as becoming one is the main point of her Character Development. She's so Workaholic that she barely spends time with her nephews. But when they both disappeared around the time the I. rex went loose, she personally goes along with Owen when he is searching for them and is clearly heartbroken when she thought they're both dead.
  • Create Your Own Villain: She contributed to the creation of the I. rex.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She throws a few witty jabs at Owen.
  • Decomposite Character: One half of John Hammond. Specifically, trying to get expert opinions about the park and its exhibits, to please the investors. Also she appears completely dressed in white and is the adult relative of two child characters visiting the park that happen to find themselves in danger from the dinosaurs' wrath while the adult relative is too far away to protect them. John was the grandfather of Lex and Tim Murphy, while Claire is the aunt of Zach and Gray.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She wears all-white outfits, has icy-blue eyes and has a somewhat aloof demeanor. She's not The Stoic since she displays frustration and nerves even before the circumstances of the film bring out her inner Mama Bear.
  • Feet-First Introduction: Both Jurassic World and Fallen Kingdom feature a shot that does this, albeit used in different ways. In the former, she's heading to a business meeting and it's the first time we see her physically in the film, in the latter, she's heading to the offices of the Dinosaur Protection Group after she met Benjamin Lockwood earlier in the film.
  • Fiery Redhead: When she argues with Owen about their unsuccessful first date, and more so when she actively defends Owen and her nephews from attacking dinosaurs.
  • The Finicky One: She printed out a full itinerary for her unsuccessful date with Owen.
  • Foil: To John Hammond. Claire is an emotionally distant thirty-something workaholic who meticulously obsesses over the park's profits; Hammond was an eccentric elderly showman who started the park to realize a personal dream. Hammond was a doting grandfather, with time to spare for his grandchildren's visit. Claire is an overworked aunt, pushed into taking care of her nephews despite having no time to spare even to greet them in person. Notably, Claire shares Hammond's all-white wardrobe, and she's also asked to watch two children while their parents are going through a divorce. Lampshaded by Simon Masrani, Hammond's more idealogically similar replacement as the owner of the park, when he gets sick of Claire spewing financial figures at him.
    Masrani: When John Hammond entrusted his park to me, never once did he talk of profit. "Spared no expense!", he always said.
  • Getting Hot in Here: Gets less clothing and more sweaty the more running around in jungles she does.
  • The Ghost: In Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, she is frequently mentioned by the counselors (one of whom has a phone conversation with her, where she apparently attempts to dump Zach and Gray at the camp) but never appears onscreen.
  • Godzilla Threshold: During the climax, when the I. rex kills Owen's raptor pack, Claire decides to release the T. rex and bait it into fighting the I. rex.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: In the prequel novel The Evolution of Claire, Claire adopted a one-eyed rescue dog she named Earhart, as well as having a pet lizard named Sally.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Just look at the photo, trying to pierce Owen.
  • Idiot Ball: Despite all the warning signs that the I. rex is very dangerous: has to be fed with a crane, ate her sibling, etc., she doesn't bother to tell her superiors at InGen until the attraction's public debut is only weeks away.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: Claire threatened to taser Santos (with a prod meant for animals) unless she told her where Maisie was taken.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Spends the whole ordeal in business clothes (at most she drops the jacket after it's damaged enough, but not before rolling back the sleeves and tying the front to make it less cumbersome) and high heels, for the entire movie.
  • Mama Bear: Double subverted. She's evidently too much of a Workaholic to look after her own nephews when they visit her at her job, but when things go awry, she ends up protecting them from the monster she played a part in creating. She eventually becomes one to Maisie as well, risking her life to distract the Indoraptor despite her leg injury, and when mercenaries abduct Maisie, Claire is willing to torture people to rescue her adoptive daughter.
  • Married to the Job: Her dedication to work is such that she has very little time for family and other relations outside of work. She gets called out on it by Owen when he finds out that she doesn't know how old her nephews are, and by her sister when she learns that Claire has fobbed the boys off on her assistant Zara, instead of spending the day with them.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Claire effectively disrobed to more "practical" attire for the island jungle. Owen's briefly at a loss for words at this. She then discards her business outfit for a very appealing tank top around the end of the movie. In the sequel, for a good portion of the movie, she wears a pair of rather tight, figure-hugging khaki pants.
    • By the third movie, Claire is still in a tank top, but it's now covered by flannel shirts worn with jeans — more suitable for her life living in a cabin and rescuing dinosaurs.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When the hybrid dinosaur she helped to create has gone berserk. She returns to the control room, guilt creeping over her expression as everyone in the room looks at her with similar concern.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: As played by Bryce Dallas Howard, who is extremely beautiful. Claire is seen in a very appealing tank top as well. Owen certainly thinks so, at least. (Especially during the Action Dress Rip, where he just... stares.)
  • Parental Substitute: By the end of Fallen Kingdom, she seemingly has become Maisie's adoptive mother having bonded with her throughout the night trying to keep her safe from Mills and the Indoraptor. By Dominion, she and Owen wholeheartedly consider themselves Maisie's parents.
  • Rule of Symbolism: At the beginning of the film, Claire is conservatively dressed and shows that she is driven by planning and an attention to detail. Throughout the film, however, she loses more and more of her composure, freaking out when her nephews go missing and performing an Action Dress Rip to help Owen track them down. By the finale, she's tied her coat around her waist, is scuffed up and sweating, and outruns Rexy in high-heels after deciding to perform an impromptu plan during the fight between I. rex and the raptors.
  • Sci-Fi Bob Haircut: She's present with a very nice looking bob cut early on in Jurassic World, but it gets gradually dirtier and messier as she goes through the adventure.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: Downplayed when Owen tells her to change her outfit before they search for her nephews. She performs an Action Dress Rip and rolls up the sleeves of her coat to her elbows.
  • Tank-Top Tomboy: While she's not tomboyish, she does start to wear a tank top after she Took a Level in Badass.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Claire goes from the mostly office-bound manager to rescuing the group on several occasions, such as tranquilizing the Dimorphodon attacking Owen and luring Rexy to fight the I. rex. In Fallen Kingdom, she's more than willing to throw herself into the action if it means saving the day.
    • Dominion finds her fighting off a villain, then racing over the rooftops of Malta to escape attack dinosaurs and find her daughter.
  • Unkempt Beauty: She winds up injured, sweating, and exhausted, with her hair a ragged mess by the end of it. ... Still gorgeous.
    • In Dominion, she lives in jeans and flannel shirts,and her hair has its natural waves, instead of a blow-out. Still gorgeous.
  • Uptight Loves Wild: Averted at first, since she didn't enjoy her first date with Owen, but later on comes to feel this way, after his "wild" nature helped her save her nephews.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Owen and Masrani call her out for her tendency to treat the dinosaurs less as animals and more as "assets." She eventually grows out of this.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Claire delivers one to Owen in Fallen Kingdom when he turns his back on an opportunity to rescue the endangered dinosaurs. Claire specifically brings up Blue to try and change his mind.
  • Workaholic: One of her defining character traits in Jurassic World. In the video game, there's even a point wherein she tells Zara that she's too busy to look at a picture of a dinosaur Gray drew for her.

Control Room


Vivian Krill
Played By: Lauren Lapkus

Appearances: Jurassic World

"Another Pachy roaming outside his zone... But he's fully sedated and ready for relocation."

A Jurassic World employee that works in the control room, along with Lowery.

  • Better as Friends: With Lowery. Granted, this is mostly just because she already has a boyfriend.
  • Break the Cutie: The disastrous events going on, and Masrani's death, leave her very emotionally broken up to say the least.
  • Bridge Bunny: The equivalent in the control room.
  • The Heart: Easily the nicest and most moral among the Mission Control members.
  • Nerves of Steel: Despite everything going on around her, Vivian remains calm and collected through every announcement and new piece of information, keeping park personnel as up to date as possible.
  • Nice Girl: She's rather sweet and considerate. Even when she rejects Lowery, she lets him down gently.
  • Oblivious to Love: Evidently didn't know Lowery liked her.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: A specialty of Lauren Lapkus. She looks adorably distraught when Owen and a worker are running from the I. rex.


Lowery Cruthers
"This place was real. It didn't need genetic hybrids. They just needed dinosaurs."
Played By: Jake Johnson

Appearances: Jurassic World

A tech-savvy control room operator at Jurassic World.

  • Audience Surrogate: As the quote says, he doesn't like the idea of a hybrid dinosaur to attract an audience and prefers true dinosaurs. This echoes many of the knee-jerk complaints from fans about a 'hybrid dinosaur'. His snark over brand name endorsements on things in the park echoes general audience complaints about ham-fisted Product Placement in any movie.
  • Butt-Monkey: Lowery gets put down by almost every character (except Vivian, but especially by Claire) for really no reason, to his own dismay.
  • Composite Character: He possesses a blend of Ian Malcolm's prescience, Ray Arnold's snark, and Dennis Nedry's computer skills. He's even wearing glasses remarkably similar to Nedry's.
  • Deadpan Snarker:
    • After hearing the new sponsorship, "Verizon Wireless Presents the Indominus rex", from Claire, Lowery snarks they should just let the corporations name these hybrids outright to promote their products. He then mutters alternative names for the I. rex such as Pepsisaurus and Tostitodon.
    • When Masrani declares that the park's success depends on the ACU's handing on the Indominus rex breakout, stating that situation like this is an eventuality, Lowery cynically replies that they should put that statement in the brochure, along with the eventuality that a dinosaur would be eating the tourists.
  • Everyone Has Standards: When Claire is informed that a Pachycephalosaurus broke through an enclosure, damaging its RFID chip, and the containment unit shot it full of tranquilizer darts and is loading it up for recovery (as she sees in a live video feed), she only reacts with frustration. Lowery openly tells her to have some sympathy, as the frightened dinosaur just got shot full of such heavy drugs that he is stoned and on the edge of consciousness. He then says to her (his boss) in as many words that while the park's dinosaurs may have been genetically reconstituted in a lab, now they are live animals and thus experience pain and fear. He considers even non-violently tranquilizing a dinosaur to be verging on animal cruelty.
  • Fanboy: Of the original Jurassic Park to the point he has an old Jurassic Park shirt and some dinosaur toys in his monitor desk.
  • Good Counterpart: He's Nedry, but more loyal and morally upright.
  • Irony: See the quote under his picture and then remember Wu pointing out that the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park have always been genetic hybrids due to scientists using DNA from contemporary animals to fill the gene sequence gaps and make the dinosaurs fit an idealized, "cooler" vision of them rather than one dedicated to accuracy.
  • Nerd Glasses: He has a pretty thick pair of glasses.
  • Nice Guy: Is loyal to the park, Claire and Masrani despite his better judgement and annoyance at the more questionable decisions the companies make, makes sure everyone gets out safely while choosing to stay behind himself to help Claire out and respects Vivian's rejection, even though he's evidently not happy about it.
  • Perma-Stubble: Lowery sports some bristly stubble, accompanied by a mustache.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To Dennis Nedry. Both are slovenly computer geeks with authority problems, but while Dennis betrays his superiors for personal profit and ultimately dies trying to escape the park, Lowery stays loyal to his boss and ultimately risks his life to stay behind and save Owen and Claire. Notably, Claire chews him out for having a cluttered workspace, just like Ray Arnold did to Dennis in the original. They also wear a similar pair of glasses.
  • Undying Loyalty: To both the park and Claire. When everyone else is evacuated from the control room, Lowery volunteers to stay behind and make sure everything is still running as smoothly as possible, knowing full well that dangerous dinosaurs are loose all over the park. And it's a good thing he did stay behind, because Claire would've never been able to get Rexy from her paddock without Lowery to open the door remotely.

Velociraptor Trainers


Owen Grady
"Charlie! Hey! Don't give me that shit!"
Played By: Chris Pratt
Dubbed By: David Krüger (European French)

Appearances: Jurassic World | Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom | VelociCoaster | Jurassic World Dominion

"Just relax. It's just like taking a stroll through the woods. 65 million years ago."

A Jurassic World employee who specializes in researching the behavioral patterns of Velociraptors, which has led to him having a friendly relationship with the animals.

  • The Ace: That guy has trained Velociraptors to not only refrain from eating him, but also to respect and obey him. There's nothing he's bad at (except flirting), and what sells it is when asked "Who's the alpha?" of the Velociraptor pack, he simply says, "You're looking at him."
  • All There in the Manual: The canonical backstory for Owen is that he was a dolphin trainer in the Navy, making him the ideal candidate to train highly-intelligent animals that people make the mistake of assuming are fully tamed.
  • Amazon Chaser: Does not hesitate to kiss Claire after she opens fire on a rogue Dimorphodon to save him.
  • Badass Biker: Owen rides a motorcycle alongside Velociraptors while hunting the I. rex.
  • Badass Crew: With his Velociraptors.
  • Badass in Charge: Owen is the alpha of the Velociraptors.
  • Battle Couple: Owen and Claire fall in love after years of fighting prehistoric hazards together.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Claire, owing to the fact that they went on a date in the past, but found each other too uptight and oafish respectively. Despite that, he still has an obvious attraction to her. And halfway through the movie, they do hook up. The first trailer for Fallen Kingdom implies it didn't last and he's kinda bitter over it. Come Dominion, they have finally settled as a couple.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Owen is a very nice and personable guy who gets along well with his staff and most others in the film, but put people in harm's way or mistreat his raptors and he'll suddenly become a very pissed off Papa Wolf. He punches Hoskins in the face for doing both of those in the same day.
    • In Dominion, he chokes a freaking Dilophosaurus that was threatening Claire, causing it to gag on its own venom before Kayla shocks it. This is enough for him to scare a pack of them away.
  • BFG: It's a customized Marlin 1895 chambered for .45-70.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Barry implies him to be this in the video game. His interactions with Claire only confirm this.
    Owen: [to Claire] You want a consult here or [Beat] in my bungalow?
  • Composite Character: Owen seems to share the best traits of Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ian Malcolm.
  • Control Freak: Shown in Fallen Kingdom when he and Claire are discussing why she left him (again). He says it's because she didn't want to live in a truck. She says that he wouldn't even let her drive the truck.
  • Cool Gun: He carries a scoped lever-action rifle with a very nice stainless finish, when things get serious. Also a bit of Shown Their Work, as Owen, being a former Navy Man, would recognize the benefit of having a stainless weapon in such a hot, humid environment, as well as the rifle's .45-70 chambering working as an excellent choice for bringing down large, dangerous animals. (Granted, it didn't really help much against the I. rex, but there are very few rifles on Earth that could even scratch it.)
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has a rather sardonic sense of humor.
  • Death Glare: Owen has one permanently fixed on Hoskins, who wants to use his imprinted raptors as weapons of war.
  • Decoy Protagonist: While Owen Grady gets top billing and appears in several promotional material, Colin Trevorrow stated that Claire is the main protagonist of the film, as it revolves around her Character Development.
  • Deuteragonist: While his contribution to the plot does stand on equal footing, Claire receives the actual brunt of Character Development.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: When Claire rips up her suit, he stares distractedly for several seconds. She gives a Death Glare in response at his reaction.
  • Fluffy Tamer: Trains Velociraptors for a living with the hope that the less violent beasts can eventually be introduced to the park safely.
  • Foil:
    • To Robert Muldoon. Owen is a cheerful, idealistic Fluffy Tamer, where Muldoon was a grim, cynical Great White Hunter. Notably, both of them have special relationships with the Velociraptors, but where Owen tries to train them by forming bonds based on mutual respect, Muldoon merely saw them as worthy adversaries and wanted to see them all exterminated.
    • To Vic Hoskins. Unlike Hoskins, Owen does not see the Velociraptors as tools, instead respecting them. In addition, he does not wish to use them as foot soldiers. This is what allows Owen to take control of the Velociraptors instead of Hoskins.
    • To Alan Grant. Both are considered the foremost experts on raptors, but Owen has actually interacted and trained with the animals as opposed to studying them from fossils. Owen is clearly the astronaut to Grant's astronomer.
  • Friend to All Children: He hits it off with Claire's nephews and Maisie Lockwood pretty quickly.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Shows genuine care for every dinosaur he encounters and has somehow managed to train four of the most dangerous animals on Earth, but when it comes to the Indominus rex, even Owen doesn't want anything to do with it. He does call Claire and InGen out for isolating and mistreating it, though. Beyond his general suspicion of a novel hybrid, his disgusted dialogue with Claire amounts to "Thanks to you guys, it's too late for anything to make friends with this one."
  • Good Parents: To the raptors, in stark contrast to Henry Wu's treatment of the I. rex.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Owen is attracted to the redheaded Claire Dearing. They do make out halfway through the movie, during the attack on Main Street of all places, right in front of her confused nephews.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Appears to be this with Barry. They are both protective, fatherly figures towards the Velociraptors and both actively dislike Hoskins.
  • Hyper-Awareness: Owen quickly notices things about the animals' behaviors that other people overlook. Justified, since he has to be on his guard around the raptors at all times and has extensive experience with training other highly-intelligent species, namely dolphins.
  • Ignored Expert: Yet another victim of InGen's long history of not listening to people they explicitly pay to tell them stuff they need to know. Averted with, ironically enough, Masrani, the park owner himself. He's the one who employed him in the first place to look after and train the raptors and later asked him for advice on how to manage the I. rex paddock. When things finally got out of hand, Masrani is the first person to follow his instructions by meeting up with Wu for info on the I. rex and finally switching the tactic from capturing her alive to killing her outright.
  • I'm a Doctor, Not a Placeholder: When Claire asks him if he can track Zack and Gray by their scent or footprints, he says, "I was with the Navy, not the Navajo!"
  • Morality Chain: He is the only person the raptor pack won't attack.
  • Nature Hero: Complete with living off the grid, despite being well-paid at a luxury park, and a big dose of Not Good with People. His dilapidated trailer/shack implies that he spends far more time at the raptor paddock than at home. Fallen Kingdom introduces him by building a lodge at the countryside.
  • Nerves of Steel: He manages to keep his cool despite being stuck in a paddock with four Velociraptors that have slipped into hunting mode. And he works with these animals on a daily basis, too.
  • Nice Guy: Owen is brave, protective, and cares for his Velociraptors. He also has a friendly relationship with Claire's nephews who, in turn, think he's really cool.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Downplayed. Though in fleeing from the I. rex he led it to the exit of the enclosure, it is justified in that he had no alternative, as the I. rex was blocking the only other exit, and his initial plan was to try and get around the I. rex to the exit it was too big to use. The actual blame should be put on Nick for opening the main gate in the first place.
  • Not Good with People: He may have spent too much time convincing the raptors he's an acceptable raptor father-figure.
  • No, You: To Claire at one point.
    Owen: [after hearing the I. rex's name, and barely being able to contain his laughter] The Indominus rex?
    Claire: We needed something that was both scary and easy to pronounce. You should hear a four year old try to say "Archaeornithomimus".
    Owen: ... You should hear you try to say it.
  • Only Sane Man: He seems very uncertain about the whole "create a hybrid dinosaur" idea, and when she gets loose he's the only one to insist they put her down instead of trying to recapture her, because of the danger she poses to the park. He's also the only staff member so far who acknowledges the fact that the animals are, well, animals and need to be treated as such.
    • The VelociCoaster theme park attraction's main preshow mostly consists of Owen explaining to Claire how absurd, irresponsible and dangerous the entire premise of building a rollercoaster through the middle of the Velociraptor paddock is.
  • Papa Wolf: At several points in the film, Owen tries to protect Zach and Gray from the I. rex and other dinosaurs and in his second film he goes out of his way to try to keep Maisie safe. Most of his antagonism with Hoskins stems from his need to protect and ensure his raptors' safety. Even during the firefight, Owen never shoots directly at them, and he instead attempts to distract and lure them away from nearby humans. This ensures that he doesn't lose their hard-earned trust, either. In the third film when both Maisie and Beta (Blue's daughter) are captured by mercenaries, he does whatever it takes to get them both back.
    Owen: Gentlemen, you have one big target. Do not shoot my raptors ... please.
  • Parental Substitute: To the raptors. It's mentioned by Malcolm in The Lost World that the main reason why Jurassic Park's dinosaurs are so violent and sociopathic is because they had no parents to model their behavior off of, which led to them acting purely on instinct. Owen solves this issue (to an extent) by raising the raptors himself and providing them with a framework for healthy, effective pack behaviors. He's both their alpha and their father-figure, in a sense.
    • By the end of Fallen Kingdom, he seemingly has become Maisie's adoptive father having bonded with her throughout the night trying to keep her safe from Mills and the Indoraptor. Dominon reveals that he and Claire have been raising her as their daughter since then.
  • Rated M for Manly: Owen is a retired U.S. Navy dolphin trainer, works with Velociraptors for a living, and prefers a more rugged lifestyle than most of his coworkers. However, unlike Hoskins and his mercs, Owen isn't as extreme about it, considering his genuine concern for the park's animals and their various needs. This especially applies to his four raptors, who he treats with great care and devotion.
  • Rescue Romance: Gives Claire a Big Damn Kiss after she rescues him from a Dimorphodon.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: He punches Hoskins for misusing his raptors and tells him to stay away from them from now on.
  • Team Dad: Also to the raptors. He's the only person they listen to and won't attack on sight, which Owen attributes to maintaining a mutually respectful relationship with them. It also helps that Owen raised them since birth and all four of the raptors (who were given bird DNA instead of frog) have imprinted on him.
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: Owen's expression is a mix of shock and horror when Charlie's blown to pieces right in front of him. He just sits there for several moments with glazed eyes, unmoving despite the firefight around him.
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: An aversion - Owen is the only protagonist in the franchise to intentionally kill a villain, even if it's indirect. After knocking Delacourt into a dinosaur fighting ring and extracting the location of Beta and Maisie from him, he leaves the black market dinosaur dealer to be eaten by a juvenile Baryonx.
  • The Worm Guy: Much like Dr. Grant and Dr. Sattler before him, Owen's specialty at the park is narrow and focuses almost solely on his imprinted raptors, so he's quite puzzled when Claire requests that he evaluate the I. rex and her paddock. Turns out that this was at least somewhat relevant after all; the I. rex has raptor DNA in her.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: He chews out Claire and InGen for not only creating the I. rex, but mistreating it and letting it grow up in isolation.


Barry Sembène
"Something is wrong. They're communicating."
Played By: Omar Sy

Appearances: Jurassic World | Jurassic World Dominion

"She looks at what she wants. Usually what she wants to eat."

A tamer who takes care of Owen's Velociraptors.

  • Bilingual Bonus:
    • Barry can sometimes be heard speaking to the raptors in French, which appears to calm them down and annoy Hoskins, who is standing nearby and pretending to understand him.
    • Also what he says to Owen after the incident in the Raptors' pen. And it's not clear by his tone if he's joking.
      Barry: You should have let them eat him.
  • The Bus Came Back: Barry returns in Dominion as a deep cover French Intelligence agent who intends to shut down Malta's dinosaur black market.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Much like Owen, he has a dry wit. Just look at his folder quote.
  • Fluffy Tamer: He's the only person besides Owen that can get anywhere near the raptors without losing life or limb, and assists him in the daily upkeep of their enclosures and overall health. Blue even recognizes Barry's voice and stops attacking during the firefight when she realizes exactly who is stuck in the log. This gives Owen the opportunity to draw her off and save his life.
  • Gratuitous French: He frequently speaks and swears in French, with "Merde!" being a favorite of his.
  • Hero of Another Story: By the time of Dominion, he's been working for years to protect dinosaurs from criminal exploitation, and what we see is implied to be one mission of many.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Appears to be this with Owen. They are both protective, fatherly figures towards the Velociraptors and both actively dislike Hoskins.
  • The Lancer: He is Owen's second-in-command, but is somewhat calmer and more mature.
  • The Mole: He's one of several intelligence agents in deep cover in the Amber Clave market.
  • Nice Guy: He genuinely cares for the Velociraptors and is disgusted by Hoskins only thinking of them as tools.
  • Number Two: After Owen, Barry is the only one the Velociraptors won't attack.
  • Only One Name: He was only known by his given name until Jurassic World: Evolution revealed his surname.
  • Only Sane Man: While not as prominent as Owen, Barry thinks that Hoskins is absolutely insane for wanting to weaponize the raptors and shows nothing but disgust for how some of the animals are treated.
    Barry: Code 19! Asset out of containment. These people, they never learn.
  • Papa Wolf: Much like Owen, Barry doesn't want Hoskins anywhere near the raptors and becomes openly hostile when he suggests using them as weapons of war. He even starts tracking Hoskins and his men to see what their ulterior motives may be towards the pack.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He wears a pink shirt, though not as fancy as Masrani's.
  • Resigned to the Call: He tried to settle down and start a cafe with his cousin after the events of Jurassic World, but realized his skills were too sorely needed for him to live a peaceful life.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: He has a nickel-plated revolver for emergencies.


Played By: Colby Boothman

Appearances: Jurassic World

A young worker at the Velociraptor paddock.

  • Mauve Shirt: He almost dies, but Owen saves him.
  • Named by the Adaptation: His name was given in LEGO Jurassic World. He's listed in the film credits as simply "Young Raptor Handler."
  • New Meat: He's the newest addition to Owen's team of raptor handlers, and he isn't terribly good at his job at first. Emphasis on the "meat" part, at least as far as the raptors are concerned.
  • Too Dumb to Live: At least in Owen's opinion. Not only does he accidentally fall into the paddock attempting to retrieve an escaped piglet, he also turns his back to the bars, which is a huge no-no.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He disappears from the film after he's seen activating the switch that opens the raptor pen. He doesn't appear to be among the raptors' victims when they turn against the humans later on, so his fate is at present unknown.

Asset Containment Unit


Katashi Hamada
"It can camouflage!"
Played By: Brian Tee

Appearances: Jurassic World

The commanding officer of Jurassic World's ACU (Asset Containment Unit).



Appearances: Jurassic World

One of the ACU Troopers under Austin's command.



Appearances: Jurassic World

One of the ACU Troopers under Hamada's command.

  • Action Girl: As one of Hamada's troopers, she definitely qualifies as this. She's also shown to be quite capable in subduing the escaped pterosaurs during their attack on Main Street.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The ACU team's only female member.
  • Vasquez Always Dies: Averted. She reappears, along with Austin in Main Street and presumably helps with subduing the pterosaurs and evaquating the guests.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After the Main Street sequence, she just vanishes.



Appearances: Jurassic World

One of the ACU Troopers under Hamada's command.

  • Red Shirt: Like most of the other troopers, he exists solely to show how much of a threat the Indominus is.
  • Neck Snap: He snaps his spine when the Indominus seizes him and throws him backwards at a tree branch, complete with a snap sound.
  • Flat Line: He gets killed off in the manner.



Played By: Paul Darnell (uncredited)

Appearances: Jurassic World

One of the ACU troopers under Hamada's command.

  • Red Shirt: Like almost all of the other ACU troopers.
  • Squashed Flat: After Austin fires a net launcher at the Indominus rex's face, it knocks over a tree in its struggles to get the net off, crushing Lee.
  • Flat Line: Like Hamada, Craig, and Miller, he gets killed off in this manner.

Camp Cretaceous Counselors


Voice by: Jameela Jamil

Appearances: Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

A camp counselor and paleontologist who "keeps things running on schedule".

  • Back for the Finale: She and Dave return in the final season, having been contacted by Brandon Bowman, Darius' brother, to find the missing kids on Isla Nublar.
  • Brainy Brunette: Is a paleontologist and seems knowledgeable enough about dinosaurs that she and Dave are called as backups when things go out of hand elsewhere.
  • Coordinated Clothes: Roxie and Dave both wear the red councilor uniforms.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: She has a passing resemblance to her voice actress.
  • The Leader: She's the head counselor, though Dave insists that the two are co-heads.
  • Mama Bear: Can be quite fierce when it comes to the safety of the kids. Played this trope straight when she and Dave were forced to leave the kids behind. She looked ready to beat up an employee to turn the boat around.
  • Not So Above It All: She watched Brooklynn's lock-picking video and subscribed as a result. She tells Dave not to mention this to Brooklynn.
  • Only One Name: Her full name isn't revealed.
  • Put on a Bus: Well boat actually, but she and Dave are almost completely absent, minus a couple mentions here and there from Season 2 thanks to being forced to evacuate at the end of Season 1. They only get one mention in Season 3 and not at all in Season 4.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: She steals a car so she and Dave could go back for the missing campers.
  • Team Mom: Despite her strictness, she acts like a mother and genuinely seems concerned for the kids under her care.
  • Women Are Wiser: Subverted. She initially seems to be more sensible than Dave, but she has an extremely headstrong personality that causes her to decide to leave the kids alone on multiple occasions while she takes care of something, and every time it results in the kids being endangered.


Voice by: Glen Powell

Appearances: Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

A camp counselor and paleontologist described as a "gregarious slacker and goofball".

  • Back for the Finale: He and Roxie return in the final season, having been contacted by Brandon Bowman, Darius' brother, to find the missing kids on Isla Nublar.
  • Casanova Wannabe: His attempt at charming the dispatch lady into helping them is not very successful.
  • Coordinated Clothes: Roxie and Dave both wear the red councilor uniforms.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Despite being more of a slacker who tries to be "cool" for the kids, he's the one who points out that it's probably a bad idea for both Roxie and himself to leave them unattended while they go talk to management about closing the camp, especially given that leaving the kids alone was what led to the disaster that caused the two of them to conclude that the camp needed to be shut down for safety reasons in the first place. He's right, his and Roxie's absence means that the kids are left to fend for themselves when the Indominus rex breaks loose.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Like Roxy, he bears a slight resemblance to his vocal performer.
  • One of the Kids: He really acts not that different from the kids he's supposed to be supervising.
  • Only One Name: Like Roxie, his last name isn't revealed.
  • Papa Wolf: Though not as protective as Roxie, he will rush to the campers' aid regardless of the situation.
  • Put on a Bus: Well boat actually, but he and Roxie are almost completely absent, minus a couple mentions here and there from Season 2 thanks to being forced to evacuate at the end of Season 1. Unlike Roxie though Dave does at least get a voice appearance when the kids find a tape of his "attempt" at music. They're mentioned only once in Season 3 and not at all in Season 4.
  • Stress Vomit: Throws up after getting Kenji and Darius out of the Velociraptor's enclosure.
  • Totally Radical: Even more so than Kenji. He even keeps up the slang when saying hi to Henry Wu, much to Roxy's chagrin.

Bright Minds Interns.


Justin Hendricks

Appearances: The Evolution Of Claire

An intern for Bright Minds and Claire Dearing's love interest.

  • The Charmer: Justin is a nice guy who quickly becomes attracted to Claire after they bonded over sharing interests in palaeontology and science, he defends her and the other girls from another male interns sexist comments and is very supportive of Claire.
  • Disappeared Dad: His father abandoned him and his mother.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He ended up sacrificing his life to protect Claire by distracting a Velociraptor.
  • Proud to Be a Geek: He is science-minded business student and also a bit of geek.

    Eric and Tanya 

Eric and Tanya Skye

Appearances: The Evolution Of Claire

A pair of Interns for Bright Minds who are also twin brother and sister.
  • Camera Fiend: Eric is a video enthusiast and always has a camera ready in order to film footage of the park. Wu is particularly offended by him bringing a camera inside his own lab until Masrani intervenes.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: They are revealed to have gone to Isla Nublar to steal Data for a rival company so they could pay to treat their younger sister's heart conditions.
  • Caring Gardener: Tanya is a skilled and knowledgeable botanist.

Other Employees


Zara Young
"Can he slow down?"
Played By: Katie McGrath

Appearances: Jurassic World

The personal assistant of Claire Dearing. She's an adult... in a Jurassic Park Franchise Film. Do we really need to tell you how her day ends? Oh. We do? Just look below.

  • Adaptational Heroism: She has a much larger and more heroic role in the LEGO Jurassic World game. That is enough to spare her.
  • All There in the Manual: Zara's last name is never revealed in the films, though the video games LEGO Jurassic World, Jurassic World: The Game, and Jurassic World: Evolution give it as Young. In the book, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Survival Guide it is given as Shealy, where she's listed among those killed in previous films, though Jack Ewins has confirmed the book is not part of the film canon.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: It's not the 100 foot drop into water that kills her, nor is it the Pteranodons. It is the literal big fish looking for a snack.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She always appears very distant and dragged.
  • Butt-Monkey: Zara doesn't have the best day of her life when Zach and Gray are placed under her supervision. She spends most of her time struggling to watch over them while they frequently run from her. She ultimately meets a grisly fate in the jaws of the Mosasaurus, though not before getting repeatedly savaged by a Pteranodon.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: She's flailed around by multiple Pteranadons and Swallowed Whole by the Mosasaurus.
  • Eaten Alive: She was still alive when the Pteranodon tried to lift her out of the water, and can be seen pinned beneath it inside the Mosasaurus' mouth before she closes her jaws.
  • Failed a Spot Check: During the pterosaur attack, Zach notices a Pteranodon barreling towards them and pulls Gray out of the way before it can grab any of them. Zara, on the other hand, wasn't so lucky...
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: Nobody says a single word about her after her death, not even Zach and Gray, who are the only two people that witnessed her demise. Though given the looks on their faces when they witnessed it, it seems unlikely that they'd want to talk about it. Played straight and justified with Claire who would logically be closest to her, with Zara being her PA, albeit by this point, Claire is probably more preoccupied with ensuring her nephews' safety than with giving last rites to a fallen friend.
  • Gender Flip: She could be considered a female personification of the original Jurassic Park novel's Ed Regis. Though her depiction is somewhat in contrast to Regis, who was a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing Dirty Coward and abandoned the kids left to his care at the first sign of trouble, while the harried Zara is visibly annoyed at babysitting but ultimately seems much more concerned about Zach and Gray's safety. Sadly, she meets an even worse fate than Regis.
    • It's worth noting that her demise bears some similarity to Henry Wu's in Jurassic Park due to her suddenly being attacked just as she tells someone else to get to safety.
  • Kill the Cutie: She's quite good-looking, due to being played by Katie McGrath. She gets rather spectacularly killed off in a scene which Katie McGrath did with no stunt double.
  • Mauve Shirt: She gets a name and some semblance of a personality (not a lot though) before getting an insanely overblown death.
  • Not the Fall That Kills You…: She survives an at least 100 foot fall into a body of water that would seriously injure, if not kill, most people on impact and actually manages to swim away from that. The Pteranodons and the Mosasaurus quickly put moot to that accomplishment, however.
  • Number Two: She's Claire's personal assistant.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: This is Katie McGrath we're talking about.
  • Sacrificial Lion: She is killed just to show how formidable the Pteranodons are, and to remind us that Jurassic World has a Mosasaurus.
  • Satellite Character: Much of her character revolves around being Claire's assistant and the boys' babysitter.
  • Swallowed Whole: How she and her captor meet their end, at the jaws of the Mosasaurus.
  • There Is No Kill like Overkill: She goes through hell on her way to the afterlife. She's yanked high into the air, thrown around and fought over by a pair of Pteranodons, dropped from a tremendous height into a Mosasaurus exhibit, attacked and dunked repeatedly by a Pteranodon only for the Mosasaurus to snap them both up. What makes it worse? She's probably not dead right away either, so she would have to linger in the mouth or the stomach of the Mosasaurus until she suffocated. Also, the Mosasaurus has another row of very sharp teeth inside its jaw that would rip her to shreds on the way down, even if she did manage to avoid suffocating. And, if she did manage to avoid the teeth upon being swallowed, the stomach acids would have digested her alive anyways.
    Sam Neill: Boy, what did the English girl do wrong? She got eaten by like three dinosaurs at once. Was she on the phone too much? She did something really wrong.
  • White Shirt of Death: She is wearing a white shirt throughout her entire appearance and suffers possibly the most prolonged death scene in the entire series.


Nicholas Letting

Appearances: Jurassic World
"That wall's forty feet high. You really think she could've climbed out?"
Played By: Eric Edelstein

A worker supervising the Indominus rex paddock.

  • All There in the Manual: His full name, barely legible on his ID badge in the film, is more easily seen in some behind the scenes footage and an unreleased "in-character" interview. He's listed in the film credits as simply "Paddock Supervisor."
  • Adaptational Heroism: Like Zara, he has a much larger and more active role in LEGO Jurassic World. He even manages to survive!
  • Big Eater: Downplayed. He's seen eating a sandwich and munching Oreos while on duty in the Indominus rex control room, but, despite being overweight, the film doesn't draw much attention to his eating habits.
  • Concealment Equals Cover: Parodied to some extent with him hiding (poorly) in front of a pickup. Let's just say that despite their ad campaign claiming they're "like a rock," Chevrolet trucks are no match for dinosaurs.
  • Curse Cut Short: Right before he's snatched up, he starts to mouth "Oh, fu—!"
  • Death by Pragmatism: He notices that Indominus rex is blocking the front gate of the paddock before Owen does, and so while Owen and another worker are running (unknowingly) towards danger, Nick smartly heads for the rear gate to input his security code to escape that way. Unfortunately, in saving himself, he opens up an avenue of escape for Indominus rex, who chases Owen out the open gate. Nick becomes her first post-escape victim.
  • Hope Spot: He manages to get the door open and get out of the paddock to presumed safety and hide. He still gets killed.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Because he opens the door to get out, it's partially his fault that I. rex escapes.
  • Oh, Crap!: When his pitiful hiding spot is uncovered and he realizes he's about to be eaten.
  • One-Steve Limit: Averted. The other worker in the scene is named Nick Kilgore.
  • Red Shirt: When the Indominus rex escapes, she almost immediately finds Nick and eats him like a Gushers fruit snack
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Nick's role in the film is fairly minor and is only seen for a few minutes. In the duration of his screen time he opens the gate to the paddock allowing Indominus rex to escape.
  • Surveillance Station Slacker: He's surprisingly inattentive despite managing arguably the most dangerous dinosaur in all of Jurassic World. In fact, he's the only one on duty in the control room both times Claire brings someone to the paddock, and the second time he isn't even monitoring the computer screens. It takes Owen asking why he doesn't see Indominus rex for him to finally start paying attention.
  • Tears of Fear: As he hides in front of the truck, he sobs, hoping I. rex won't find him... or knowing that he's already dead.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Had he not opened the paddock gate, the I. rex wouldn't have escaped. In his defense, the I. rex was blocking the staff exit he, Owen and the other park worker used to get inside the paddock.



Voice by: James Arnold Taylor (Season 1), Roger Craig Smith (Season 3)

Appearances: Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

A scientist at Jurassic World.

  • Asshole Victim: He gets devoured by the Indominus rex, but since he abandoned the children to their fate not long before, it's hard to feel sorry for him. He was also apparently involved with Dr. Wu's weaponized dinosaur project.
  • A Birthday, Not a Break: He is killed and eaten on his birthday.
  • Butt-Monkey: The only fellow employee to sign his birthday card is Dave who didn't even know him and is just a Nice Guy, he is left behind to die by his coworkers, he seemingly had to plan his own surprise party and he ultimately gets killed on his birthday.
  • The Cameo: He appears briefly in Dr. Wu's video diaries tending to his boss when he's poisoned by the Scorpios rex.
  • Dirty Coward: Tries to abandon the kids as soon he learns they used a vehicle to get to the lab. It gets him eaten.
  • Discretion Shot: His death is hidden from sight behind some tall grass.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: No one signed his birthday card (aside from Dave, which Eddie presumably never found out anyway).
  • Ink-Suit Actor: He resembles his voice actor James Arnold Taylor, minus the beard.
  • Mask of Sanity: He starts out jumpy but seems okay. Then he starts ranting about Wu breeding "monsters" and how they've all been left to die, laughing maniacally all the while.
  • Mythology Gag: Considering his role in the story — a park employee who gets a Karmic Death by dinosaurs after abandoning children — his name may be a reference to the original novel's Ed Regis. There's also Eddie Carr from The Lost World, who also gets eaten by dinosaurs in both the novel and film.
  • Only One Name: His surname is never given.
  • Pet the Dog: He's shown helping to tend Henry Wu's injuries from the Scorpios rex testing in a video diary, hinting that he may not have always been the unstable selfish coward that the campers encountered.


Voice by: Scott Kreamer

Appearances: Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

A park worker.

  • Family-Unfriendly Death: His death is only heard, not seen, but he's Eaten Alive by the Indominus rex. Worse, the sound in question is a Sickening "Crunch!" and it happens in full view of a group of children.
  • Harbinger of Impending Doom: He and another worker tried to warn the kids about the escaped I. rex and unfortunately, wind up as its prey.
  • I Can't Hear You: Played for Drama. He's either too panicked or unaware that his voice isn't carrying up to the kids in the cabins, who think he's reprimanding them for something instead of trying to warn them of a deadly threat.
  • No Name Given: He's simply identified as "Worker" in the credits.
  • Oh, Crap!: He notices the Indominus far too late and tries to run, screaming in fear. He doesn't get far.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Quite literally in his case. His inability to get his voice to carry up to the treetop cabins where the kids are causes them to not realize what he's trying to say and in his frustration at them not moving, not knowing they can't make out his words he keeps trying but louder. This gets him eaten by the Indominus rex as his shouting attracts it.
  • Red Shirt: He dies pretty much as soon as he's introduced, and is even literally wearing a red shirt.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He doesn't even have a name given, but his death is what signals the Genre Shift from an almost Slice of Life camp show to the Action-laced Horror that the franchise is more known for.
