Ostin is Michael's best friend and he was the first person(not counting the Elgen or Michaels parents)to know about Michaels electrical abilities. He is also very smart with an IQ of 155 and he is very literal. He is also McKenna's boyfriend.
Due to his high IQ he has saved the Electroclan numerous times and he came up with the name for the group.
He also thinks Michaels mom is hot which drives Michael crazy. He was 1 of the 3 original members of the Electro clan the others being Michael and Taylor. He got pantsed by jack and his gang before the start of the series.
