Eli "Weevil" Navarro
"Eli Navarro has been in and out of juvenile detention since he was 13 years old. By the time he turned 16, he was the leader of the Pacific Coast Highway Bike Club. By his count, he's spent more than 700 days in juvenile detention facilities. He's currently on parole after assaulting the PCH gang leader who replaced him."
The former leader of the PCH bike gang, Weevil is now firmly established as a Hearst College maintenance man. After pleading his murder charge against Eduardo "Thumper" Orozco down to assault, Weevil went through a variety of odd jobs — all of which he lost due to his anger-management issues — before Veronica helped him parlay a "favor" for Dean Cyrus O'Dell into a full-time job on campus.
When Veronica uses Weevil as her "audio/visual" aid in her Criminology class, Weevil discusses how he's trying to live on the straight and narrow but he still feels the pull of a life of crime. Is it so unreasonable that Veronica then suspects him of robbing her and others at gunpoint? Well, yes, it kind of is, but in her defense, the people responsible did intentionally frame Weevil. Will this ex-con ever get to go about his life without a cloud of suspicion hanging over his head? With Veronica around, probably not.
On the other hand, in a shocking turn of events, Weevil discovered the dean dead of a gunshot wound to the head, and not only does he still have a job on campus, he wasn't arrested by Lamb for it, and he shows Keith the "suicide" scene without Keith even once being suspicious of him! Things may be looking up for our Weevil.
Whoops! Nope, for his frankness in the Criminology class bit him on the ass when the girl who flirted with him took her turn in another round of "Let's frame Weevil." She used her knowledge to use him as the scapegoat for the crimes of herself and her rich, entitled friends. What's a guy to do?
It seems Weevil may be picking and choosing the times when he's actually living on the straight and narrow. Stealing and cubing Madison's car? No problem. Keeping hold of the money-making student ID card machine? Piece of cake. After all, his claim for workman's comp was unfairly rejected, and somebody's got to pay for turning him into Gregory House. But when Veronica wants his help connecting with his old crowd, the PCHers, Weevil seems to have cold feet. Not to worry; it's nothing some cold, hard cash doesn't cure, even if he does seem a little distressed that the person leading his old gang is none other than fresh-faced Arturo.
After all, it used to be a man's job, limp or no.
