Gary Owens was the second character in the book to take over the Skulls Gang, the former being Kevin Arnold. Gary was shown to be cold, violent, and didn't show any true emotions. After challenging Alex to a fight in the gym, Donovan pleaded with him to let him live, promising Gary that he could escape with them. Gary agreed, and he was one of the three to actually escape into the tunnels. Gary was later captured by the blacksuits and turned into a berserker. His fate is still unknown.
