Connor Lassiter (the "Akron AWOL") is a sixteen-year-old boy whose parents signed the unwind order because of his constant fighting and getting thrown out of several schools. His escape and shooting the JuveyCop with his own tranqulizer gun creates a legend about the Akron AWOL, with stories that continue to become more elaborate with each telling.
