|“||You're gonna burn like your friend.||”|
|— Penn to John Murphy [src]|
Early Life Edit
Throughout the Series Edit
In Reapercussions, Penn is with Indra and a few other Grounders making a plan to free their people from the Reapers. Octavia interrupts them and asks to help, however, Indra orders the Grounders to kill her. Penn and the others begin chasing after her in the woods but she escapes by hiding. Later on, Penn is seen with the other Grounders near the Reapers' tunnel entrance. Penn disapproves of the plan because he does not believe they stand a good chance since Artigas is young and Tomac is injured, however, Artigas objects and says that he can fight. Penn then asks if he can fight a Reaper but before he gets an answer Indra silences them. Once Octavia reappears, Indra allows her to be the bait for the Reapers while Penn and the others hide in the woods and wait for the Reapers to come. Once they do, Penn participates in the fight against the Reapers and eventually ends up freeing his people.
In Survival of the Fittest, Penn journeys to Camp Jaha with Indra and many other Grounders in order to train for the upcoming battle with Mount Weather. Once inside Alpha Station, Penn starts to accuse Murphy because he "just stood there" while Finn massacred his village. Murphy tells him he doesn't speak "Grounder" and the two get into each other's faces before Kane orders Murphy to apologize. Murphy refuses and Kane gives him two day's work detail. Penn tells Murphy that he will burn just like Finn. This angers Murphy and he swings at Penn, leading to a brawl between the Sky People and Grounders. Later, Penn watches as Kane uses a gun and seems impressed. Kane offers Penn the gun and asks him if he would like to try, however, Indra interrupts and scolds Penn and tells Kane that the Grounders don't need the Sky People's weapons.
In Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1), Penn is sent out by Clarke and Lexa as a part of their plan to take down Philpott Dam's turbines and helps Raven and Wick get inside. He shoots and kills a Mount Weather Guard with his bow.
Penn is shown to be strong and brave and this is supported when he helps fight off the Reapers in Reapercussions. He also isn't afraid to speak his mind and this is shown when he questions Indra's plan to attack the Reapers. He can also be aggressive and this is shown when he picks a fight with Murphy in Survival of the Fittest.

Penn has brown eyes, short brown hair that is mostly shaved, and brown skin. He is tall with a muscular build. Unlike most Grounders, Penn has no visible tattoos.
