Who Is Wayne

16-year-old Wayne is a bit of a weirdo and has lived his life almost like an anti-hero. Specifically, if you wrong or hurt someone he loves, he’ll antagonize you and use his almost inhuman ability to not feel pain against you. For whether it is being punched in the face, hot coffee poured on him, or a knife through his hand, you won’t hear a scream or see him freak out. Yet, don’t call him a sociopath. As shown by his love for his father, and relationship with Del, he does feel, cannot lie, and can be quite reliable. Making him ultimately just a weird kid.

Noteworthy Facts & Moments In The Series

However, after some time, his job caused him cancer and left him bedridden. Yet, he still figured out ways to make rent and take care of the household.
