Monty Green was a major character in the first, second, third, fourth and fifth seasons and a guest character in the sixth season. He was portrayed by starring cast member Christopher Larkin, and debuted in the series premiere.
While on Earth, Monty struggles with Jasper's new-found heroism and suffers from the distance it puts between them. Despite their struggles as friends, the two always seem to make up. He works on establishing contact with the Ark with the help of Raven. He is the first Delinquent who is captured by Mountain Men.
While inside Mount Weather, he helps Jasper protect the remaining Delinquents by getting familiar with its security and technology to find loopholes. He eventually assists Clarke Griffin and Bellamy Blake in killing all of the surviving residents of Mount Weather by hacking into the system controlling radiation throughout the facility. His actions led to the deaths of many innocents, including Maya, greatly damaging the friendship between him and Jasper. By the end of Season Two, he is alive and at Camp Jaha, but not without the consequence of his actions.
In Season Three, Monty joins the guard unit of Arkadia, to make sure order is maintained. After Charles Pike becomes Arkadia's new Chancellor, Monty sides with him and becomes one of his most trusted allies, due to his mother becoming part of it. He later turns against Pike, after realizing that he's just a power hungry lunatic. Along with Bellamy Blake, he spies on Pike's plans against the Grounders and then they feed the information to Kane who further gives it to Octavia Blake. Monty is even forced to shoot and kill his own mother after she falls under the influence of A.L.I.E. and tries to kill Octavia.
Throughout the course of Season Four, Monty plays an essential role in providing a safe haven from the Second Nuclear Apocalypse. He is a part of the crew that went to space in order to avoid the death wave. During the next six years, he lives on the Ring and develops an algae farm that successfully sustains the rest of Spacekru.
In Season Five, Monty returns back to the ground and tries to convince Wonkru not to fight the Eligius prisoners. He shows how the hydro farm can be restored but Octavia burns it down. After Shallow Valley was bombed, he escapes with the others to Eligius IV. While everyone else goes into cryosleep, he and Harper stay awake and later have a son whom they name Jordan. Monty cracks the Eligius III mission files and sets Eligius IV flight path before dying of old age. His actions saved everyone and will inspire his friends.
Monty grew up on Agro Station with his best friend, Jasper Jordan. Monty has known Jasper since childhood, with Jasper being in every memory Monty has. At some point, Monty was recruited by engineering and met Kyle Wick.
Monty was arrested alongside Jasper after they were caught stealing herbs when Monty forgot to replace them.
Throughout the Series
In False Gods, when Jordan plans to ask his friends to stop the execution of Russell Lightbourne, in reality Sheidheda controlling his body, Jordan states that he will be asking as his father's son. In Hesperides, while planting in the garden, Echo comments that the powdered jellyfish is better than Monty's algae. Looking at the sky, Echo offers an apology to her dead friend. In A Little Sacrifice, Jordan realizes that the Bardoan language is structured like Korean and explains that he learned it from Monty whose father was Korean and taught Monty what little he knew of the language. The knowledge imparted by Monty to his son helps Jordan come up with another translation, suggesting a test to determine the fate of the human race rather than a war. In A Sort of Homecoming, after recovering her hidden stash of alcohol in the Second Dawn Bunker, Niylah tells Jordan that its Monty's recipe. In The Last War, after coming up with a way to disable the Disciples weapons and cloaks using an EMP, Jordan states that he has a plan that Monty would be proud of.
Monty is incredibly smart, and this is something he prides himself on. He tries to use his intellect to help others and get him and his friends out of danger. He isn't a fan of violence and appears to prefer not to get involved with conflict. He keeps to himself most of the time and seems to also prefer more intimate conversations rather than putting himself in the center of attention like Jasper. He is also incredibly loyal and devoted to those he is close to and is always trying to help keep them safe. This can, at times, lead him to be very short-sighted in his decisions.
Monty is also shown to have a lot of wit, and can be very sarcastic. He will at times quip back at others, especially people he doesn't like or trust. And he has a very strong intuition and trusts his gut when it comes to certain situations (like when Clarke goes missing, and Monty has a strong feeling they're being lied to) and particular people (as shown in his disdain for Dr. Lorelei Tsing and the Mount Weather civilians, and Maya, initially). Despite this, Monty is usually a very likable guy and has forged friendships with many characters throughout the show.
Monty is a young male of East Asian descent. He has an oval face shape that is framed by his straight, black hair, tan skin with a golden undertone, and deep brown eyes with an epicanthic fold. He stands at 5'8 ½ (174 cm) and has a slim figure.
Throughout season one, he sports a gray and red hoodie that he sometimes wears a red jacket over. However, once taken in by Mount Weather, he begins to wear polo shirts that are usually sky blue. Sometime during the three months between seasons two and three, Monty joined the Arkadia Guard and began wearing the Guard's black uniform.
In Season 5, after the six year jump, Monty's black hair was significantly shorter: both sides had been shaved and the middle was short and spiked up. In his video logs, his hair started growing again over the years and becoming grayer. In his last message, Monty had long white hair.

- Main article: Clarke and Monty
Clarke is good friends with Monty, and worked together with him to contact The Ark. Clarke admires Monty's technological skills. In season two, Monty run to Clarke and embraces her when they are finally reunited. He later shows deep concern and worry for Clarke after she secretly escaped from Mount Weather, and begins to worry that she may have been killed.In "Nevermind," Clarke's mind conjures Monty to help convince her to fight and not give up. Monty's request for her to do better and for them to be the good guys motivates much of Clarke's actions in Season Six with Clarke going so far as to proclaim her plan in "Ashes to Ashes" to be "for Monty".
Finn CollinsWhile Finn's relationship with Monty is not emphasized on, Monty seems to admire Finn, especially his skills towards girls. Moreover, later, when Finn does not want to go find Jasper, Monty reproaches him saying that Jasper was looking up to him.
- Main article: Monty and Murphy
The relationship between Monty and Murphy is often a contentious one, starting with Murphy's desire to kill Jasper Jordan. The two work together, though often reluctantly. In "Praimfaya," Monty sarcastically commented that he should've "drank the tea" rather than spend five years in space with Murphy, a reference to Jasper's drugged tea he used to kill himself, suggesting that Monty thought death was better than 5 years with Murphy in an enclosed space. However, after Murphy abandoned Monty to get the oxygen generator to the others, Monty hugged Murphy and commented that he might not hate him anymore, something that Murphy was visibly pleased with.
In Season Five, the two are shown to have a better relationship after six years together in space. In "Damocles (Part 2)," Monty refuses to abandon the injured Murphy to die and Murphy goes so far as to allow his friend to carry him rather than leave Emori behind. In his video diary, Monty comments that Murphy was his son's favorite in the stories, something that Monty finds surprising.
After learning of Monty's death in "Sanctum," Murphy is visibly devastated by his friend's loss.In "A Sort of Homecoming," after learning that Hope Diyoza heard bad stories about him, Murphy teases Jordan on how he was Jordan's favorite from Monty's stories.

She assists him in trying to break into Dante's office, and later, Monty begins to show deep concern for Harper when she disappears and tries to find out where she went. After Monty himself is taken captive, he pleads for Dr. Tsing to not perform the bone marrow treatment on her again for she is weak. After they are released, he tends to a weak and upset Harper, and sticks by her side when Dr. Tsing later returns to their bunks to retrieve delinquents.In season three episode Red Sky at Morning he sleeps with Harper.
