Ostin is the best friend of Michael and is the first (other than the Elgen and Michaels parents) to know about his power. He has an IQ of 155 and he is very literal. Because of his high IQ he has saved the Electroclan multiple times. He is very literal and Tessa dislikes him. He is Mckenna's girlfriend.
He is described in the first book as chubby and short although he did lose weight because of his adventures.
