The Promised Neverland Wiki

John (ジョン, Jon) is a minor character of The Promised Neverland manga series and a recurring character from the Records of Comrades light novel.


John's name written on the shelter wall.

John was a boy born and raised at Glory Bell orphanage, alongside Lucas, Yugo, Dina, and countless other children. Thirteen years ago, he escaped from the orphanage, along with Yuugo, Lucas, and sixteen other kids. Like all of his siblings, John loved to eat cookies. He also enjoyed organizing teams for him and his siblings to play tag in. At some point during his time in the orphanage, Yugo brought forward the idea of escaping (presumably after finding out the true intentions of the farms). From there, John escaped with Yugo and Lucas and sixteen other children. John and his friends then took refuge at Shelter B06-32 before deciding to travel to the human reserve in hopes of finding William Minerva. On the way there, John and his friends were captured by the Poachers who brought them to Goldy Pond. Once there, Leuvis mercilessly slaughtered him and all of his friends with the exception of Yugo, who later returned to the Shelter alone, and Lucas, who begun living in the windmill with another boy, after barely managing to escape alive. He appears in the third light novel, Records of Comrades.
