“I don’t control the raptors, it’s a relationship. Based on mutual respect”
Today on Jurassic Blog .
Owen Grady was a dinosaur researcher employed by Jurassic World, and one of two main protagonists in Jurassic World, the other being Claire Dearing. He conducted a behavioral research on Velociraptors.
Prior to his occupation in Jurassic World, Owen was a member of the U.S. Navy.
After getting out of the Navy, Owen Grady was hired by the InGen Security Division to train and research the behaviors of Velociraptor.
In 2013, after discovering that the pack dynamic of Velociraptor was more complex than previously thought, he recommended his old friend Barry to Vic Hoskins to help in the training of the raptors. Barry was eventually hired as trainer and caretaker of the raptors.
By 2015, he was the alpha of a Velociraptor pack which consisted of Blue, Delta, Echo, and Charlie. As he worked for Jurassic World, he lived in a Sunrio bungalow in the outskirts of the park.
Owen’s weapon of choice was a scoped Marlin Model 1895SBL lever action rifle. He carried it during the Isla Nublar Incident of 2015, but never fired it until the fight between his Velociraptor pack and the Indominus.
Behind the scenes
A popular fan theory is that Owen Grady is the Volunteer Boy at the Dig Site in Jurassic Park who Dr. Alan Grant scares after he calls a recently uncovered Velociraptor “a six-foot turkey”. In a deleted scene from Jurassic World, Owen reveals he has little respect for humanity as a species, declaring humans as “overrated”. He expresses his feelings that socializing with other humans only complicates one’s life, seemingly sympathizing with the choices Claire had made leading up to her distancing herself from her family.
