D.Gray-man Encyclopedia


Johnny comes from a family of tailors. His family was apparentely not very rich. This is where his sewing skills come from. Depending to the reliability of what he says to Reever, his grandmother is currently in charge of the family buisness. [1]

Formerly a member of the North American Branch Science Division, along with his best friend Tup Dop, Johnny has presumably served the order for a while to have been able to secure a promotion to the European Branch, despite his age.

He was one of Suman's friends; he was the only one who knew that Suman was lonely. Because their rooms were so close together, they would often play chess together, in which Johnny would win most of the time. Whenever Suman would lose, he would ignore Johnny the next time they met in the cafeteria but always asked Johnny to a game whenever he returned from missions.

A short time later, Johnny is impaled through the chest by the Noah Lulu Bell, disguised as Andrew Nansen, as her Akuma forces invade the Black Order HQ. He is later thrown by the Skull Tapp Dopp and is finally attacked by an Akuma. However, Johnny is saved before the Akuma could eat him, and he begs Allen to save everyone. Johnny disappears, along with Bak Chang, Reever, the Generals, the scientists, Miranda, and Noise Marie, when the level 4 Akuma destroys the fifth laboratory. He is later shown to be alive and in stable condition. He pleads and weeps over the Skull Tapp. When Tapp dies, Johnny is in tears.

Johnny soon meets Tapp's sister Cash and seems to be overjoyed, even hugging her and screaming that she has her brother's belly, which Cash is incredibly annoyed by. Besides Bak, Reever and Komui, he is the most prominent member of the Science Department.

Seed of Destruction Arc[]

When Reever and the other Science Section heads, Regory Peck and Mark Barrows, travel to North American Branch to study the newly revealed Alma Karma, Johnny accompanies Reever as his assistant. There, Johnny becomes sickened by the revelation of what Yu Kanda and Alma had been forced to do to one another and throws up on Regory, ending in them getting dismissed from the meeting.

Almost immediately after, North American Branch is invaded by the Earl, who lets in several member of the Noah Family. The Noah take Johnny and the others hostage to lure Allen in for Alma Karma's awakening. Johnny and the others bear witness to Alma's awakening and consequential assault on the North American Branch.

After the attack, when Allen is detained, Johnny and the other members of the Science Division work on keeping up their strength so they can find a way to help Allen. When Allen escapes and Johnny hears the news that Allen has been branded a traitor and target for capture, he can only ask why it all had to happen.

Searching for A.W. Arc[]

Three months after Allen's escape, Johnny has taken to working out daily and has not needed to take as many trips to the hospital as he once did. Jiji Lujun, finding this odd, drags Reever and Cash along with him to invesitgate when Johnny dismisses himself. When he is found in the off-limits records section, trying to taken Allen's case information, and he is confronted by Reever, who asks if he plans on going to Allen, Johnny announces he would like to resign from the Science Division, with his reason being that his grandmother is in ill-health due to her age and that he is the only member of his family left to carry on the family name. To keep Johnny from being punished for not taking the proper steps to resigning, though, Reever refuses to listen to Johnny's request.

Eventually, though, Reever gives in, admitting that he understands why Johnny wants to leave. After Reever and the other members of the Science Division give Johnny what well-wishes and advice they can, Johnny leaves for the train station, where he is met by two Central agents who want him to drink a serum that will cause him to forget his time in the Order. Realizing right off that drinking the serum will make him forget that he is, indeed, going to look for and help Allen, Johnny attempts to escape with the help of a few smoke bombs, but the Central agents, who turn out to be CROW, capture him quickly. Just then, though, Kanda arrives and saves Johnny, announcing that he wants to help Johnny find Allen.

After they arrive in a new town, Johnny and Kanda, using a list of people Allen/Cross owe money to, begin to go to debt collectors and building/bar managers in a nearby red-light district to look for anyone who might have seen Allen, Johnny figuring that Allen would want to find out more about Cross' connections though the places the General frequented the most. When Kanda asks Johnny why he's looking for Allen, Johnny answers that it is because he and Allen are friends, and just as Johnny asks Kanda for his reasons Johnny is attacked by an Akuma.

After being saved by Kanda, Johnny listens in shock when Kanda explains that he feels guilty for his part in Allen's transformation into Nea Walker, and Johnny, realizing that Kanda came back to the Order for Allen's sake, tears up and thanks him.

The next morning, when they are both hung over from drinking so much the previous night, Johnny tries to get Kanda to drink a newly revamped Komuvitan D, which Kanda knocks out of his hands. Johnny chases the bottle and ends up on the ground in front of a performing clown, watching the clown in wonder. When the clown holds out his hat to collect money from the onlookers, Johnny realizes that his purse was stolen and runs off, crying out frantically, to Kanda's confusion, about needing to get a job. When Johnny tries to pull Kanda along with him, the clown is attacked by an Akuma, and when the Akuma explodes before Kanda can intervene, Johnny and Kanda are shocked to see that the clown is Allen.

Johnny, happy to see Allen again, tearfully hugs him stating he's glad to have found him. Allen tries to run away only for Kanda to pin him down and rub his face with a cloth to get the make-up off. As an Akuma arrives and Allen asks how Link died, Johnny shows his relief of finally knowing that Allen really didn't kill Link. He informs Allen that Link died after Allen left prompting Allen to realize it was Apocryphos who killed the inspector. As more Akuma arrive and Allen flees to keep the people safe, Kanda and Johnny follow in pursuit. Johnny calls out for his golem and reveals it's one he made so the Order won't be able to track it and placed a receiver on Allen's head when he hugged him. When they arrive to Allen's location, Allen passes out, Kanda realizes that the wound that is bothering Allen is the one he had caused with Mugen at the North American Branch, and Johnny sees that his Innocence is trying to heal it, as it had when Tyki had punctured his heart. When Allen falls unconscious, Johnny and Kanda take him to a hotel to rest, Johnny staying by his side and urging him to fight.

After Allen awakens, Johnny is happy and gets him some water to help him. However Johnny has no drinks and Johnny tries to get some painkillers, Allen grabs Johnny's head from behind and slams it to the wall knocking him out. After Kanda rushes in the room and giving Johnny his own blood to help him, Johnny soon awakes and starts to realize what happened between him and Allen. Allen, freaking out over the thought of hurting Johnny, backs away and orders Johnny not to come any closer to him. Johnny refuses because, as he states, "Because I, Johnny Gill, as your friend..I want to help you.", which catches Allen off guard from laughing and makes Kanda smirk (and then annoyed) at the flustered Allen. They then open "Johnnys' Speedy Repair Service" to make some money and has special handcuffs on him and Allen to keep him from running away again. He tells Allen that it would be too dangerous to stay at the inn and need to make some money for their shelter and food and becomes shocked from Allen's Innocence reacting suddenly.

Having followed Allen, he sends his bat to find Kanda and let them know were they are and then he arives and is shocked to see the Earl there and saves Allen from getting crushed by the Earl. Terrified by the pressence of the Earl, Johnny attempts to get Allen away from him despite Allen's plea for Johnny to leave. Johnny refuses, stating they'll leave together. As the Earl sees similarities with Johnny carrying Allen as Mana did in the past, the Earl, angrily asking who he is blows Johnny away sending him backwards to a wall.

Johnny is knocked out by this blow and is left uncounscious for the rest of the meeting between Allen (or rather, Nea, who has taken over his body again) and the Earl. When Howard Link arrives just in time to save Allen (Nea) from the attacks of the maddened Earl, he brings both him and Johnny onto the roof of the nearby building, stating that they should hurry up and get away from the Earl while the latter restrained with the spells.

Apart from this, Johnny's image appears before Allen in Nea's subconsciousness he's currently trapped into, repeating the same words of encouragement he said to Allen in the hotel when the latter was unconscious. Also, he assures him that the bonds between people are strong and that t doesn't matter where are they and how far apart - they still remain connected. These words prompt Allen to scream out for Nea to give his body back.

In the real world, Johnny wakes up and he is released from Howard Link's spell and calls Allen's name. Nea who is controling Allen's body turns and glares at Johnny. Johnny notices Nea's golden eyes and realizes that this is not Allen. However the real Allen hears Johnny's call and stretches his hand. In Nea's inner world, he figuratively catches Johnny's hand and Nea looses control of the body. The body falls from the roof everyone watches in shock. Johnny jumps into the void to catch up Allen. Before they crash, Crown Clown is activated and hang on the calls to stop their fall. Allen Walker lands safely with Johnny and the latter joyfully realizes that Allen has regained control of his body. Allen comments that the science division always overdose even though he told him to stay away  [2]

Johnny Allen hug

Allen and Johnny hug each other and cry out of relief but they are interrupted by Tyki Mikk. Johnny and Allen quickly chat about what happened. Johnny learns that Allen had no clue what happened while Nea was in control and Allen learn that Johnny was unconcious. Johnny notices that Howard Link has vanished. Tyki Mikk turns less friendly but he is fortunately stopped by a creation of Froi Tiedoll which creates a huge explosion. Allen and Johnny are blown away and before they can properly get up, Johnny realizes that something is forming around them. He tries to warn Allen but too late, in a few seconds they find themselves trapped in a coach which drives them far from the area. Johnny understands that this is General Froi Tiedoll's work and that the Black Order found them. Johnny panicks as he notes "this is bad". Allen tries to open the curtains but to no avail and Johnny explains that the carriage is made from Innocence and thus way more solid than a regular jail. Johnny them returns to panicking uttering "what do we do?" The vehicule stops and the curtains open to show Yu Kanda and Tiedoll. [3]

Allen and Johnny in carriage

Johnny and Allen in the carriage

Johnny and Allen are stunned to find that they have been rescued by Yu Kanda and Froi Tiedoll in a carriage made using the senior General's innocence . Johnny is seen shocked when Allen believes for a brief moment he has been betrayed, and desperately tries to keep him and Kanda from fighting within the carriage, reminding them of their situation and if they are caught because of the two's argument, then it would be all over. Johnny is next seen surprised at the reason Allen wishes Kanda to release him, as Allen firmly believes from his ordeals that with the Order and Apocryphos chasing him, anyone near him could become a target, and does not believe he is strong enough to protect anyone. Especially a human like Johnny without innocence or abilities. Johnny is left speechless, clearly surprised at how much stress Allen had been keeping inside because of this.

Kanda Allen Johnny socking

Johnny tries to stop Kanda from punching Allen

When Kanda again attempts violence, believing knocking Allen out is the only way to keep him silent or from trying to run, Johnny shouts out and explains how close Allen was to giving into the Fourteenth's memory, and begs Kanda and Allen to resolve their issues another way without violence as Allen had just returned and was exhausted, alarming Kanda in doing so as Johnny grabs onto his arm. Johnny is next seen to the side as Kanda reprimands Allen's concerns and tells Johnny he has no intention of socking Allen, and lets the former scientist know he can let go of his arm. He then alongside Allen mistakes the jar Kanda shows them which is holding Timcampy's ashes as salt. When Kanda demands to know of the creature tailing them (Apocryphos ), Johnny is stunned silent at the fact Kanda has had a run-in with the humanoid innocence, and listens in silence as Kanda asks (demands) what the creature was and why it is after him.[4] Johnny stays in the coach as they leave the city but he finds very hard to look at Allen who himself seems to

be in pain at looking Timcanpy like this, so Johnny takes the jar with him and joins Tiedoll at the front seat of vehicle. Johnny engages conversation. Johnny stares at the stars and Tiedoll comments that the science section members are always working underground. Johnny explains that night is the best time for conducting their researches and he actually never watched the sky at night due to being overbusy. Tiedoll notices the jar and accurately notes that Johnny didn't want to leave it with Allen. Johnny answers with embarassement that he wanted to let Tim get some fresh air. He gravely adds that Allen can't seem to be able to look at Tim in such a state. Allen hasn't spoken a word since then.[5]

Wagon empty

Johnny discovers the wagon is empty

Johnny is thoughtful about the situation, he evokes the human-shaped innocence and wonders what it may be, if it could be the heart and why Allen kept it a secret. Lost in his thoughts the image of inspector Howard Link occurs to him and if Inspector Malcolm C. Lvellie is behind all this. Tiedoll interrupts his train of thoughts and asks Johnny to talk to him to prevent him from falling asleep. Johnny vigorously asks why Tiedoll helped them. Tiedoll explains that he yielded to his disciples's will and that he is interested in the human-shaped innocence. Johnny seems not to be convinced and wonders if they can't really trust him before Froi Tiedoll adds that he is grateful to Allen for doing so much to save Kanda and Alma back in the North American Branch. Johnny is overjoyed. When Tiedoll states he won't overlook them twice, Johnny is very grateful that it even happened once. Suddenly they hear a song and Kanda's yelling in the coach. Johnny opens the curtains and finds that both hosts vanished. [5] Johnny receives an electric shock from his bracelet. The bracelet breaks away. Johnny explains to Tiedoll that this must be because it can't sens Allen's bracelet anymore: Reever's inventions are generally designed with a safety device, unlike Komui's. Johnny concludes that Kanda and Allen are very far away. [6]
