I'm number one. (Belch)
~ Bryan

Bryan is one of the main antagonists of the Michael Vey book series by Richard Paul Evans. He is one of Hatch's Glows. He has the power to condense electricity into beams to use for cutting. He works for the Elgen Corporation.



Bryan is one of the 17 children accidentally given electric powers at birth due to a malfunctioning experimental machine. His parents were killed by the Elgen at a young age, and he was taken in by Hatch. He was with Hatch for an unspecified amount of time.

The Prisoner of Cell 25

Bryan is introduced as the least mature of Hatch's Glows, being rude and generally gross. He joins the group in attending concerts and stunt shows. When Michael arrives to free Taylor and the other rebel Glows, Bryan peruses them with Hatch and guards. After cutting down a door, Bryan flees with the other Glows.

Rise of the Elgen

In Rise of the Elgen, Bryan and the others are sent to the Peruvian Starxource Plant to oversee operations. Michael is captured there, and the Glows go to mock him. Michael is able to verbally fend them off, telling Bryan that the others make fun of him behind his back and once, Quentin put dog feces on his bed. Furious, Bryan storms away.

Later, when Michael escapes, he throws a lightning ball at an observation booth where Hatch and the Glows are. Bryan escapes.

Battle of the Ampere

Bryan assists Hatch in taking over the Ampere and overthrowing the Elgen board. The Ampere is later destroyed by Michael.

Hunt for Jade Dragon

Bryan is sent to the Taiwanese Starxource Plant to guard the captured Jade Dragon. Michael arrives and frees her.

Storm of Lightning

Bryan helps Hatch conquer the small island nation of Tuvalu and enslave its people.

Bryan later joins Quentin, Tara, and the others in a plan to overthrow Hatch. They free Quentin's friend Captain Welch. However, Hatch discovers them and arrests them. Bryan is imprisoned.

Fall of Hades

In Fall of Hades, Bryan is only mentioned as being still loyal to Hatch and finishing off the last few weeks of his imprisonment.

Michael Vey 7

Bryan will most likely appear in the currently unnamed seventh book.


Bryan is rude, immature, and generally gross. He is also addicted to action and loves fighting and video games. He is also not very bright, as he tends to make mistakes and act awkward in social environments. He is the least popular of Hatch's Glows (besides Nichelle), and is generally jealous of Quentin's looks and popularity. He also views humans as inferior to him because of his powers.


Not much information is given about Bryan's physical appearance. He is described as Puerto Rican with large muscles.


  • He loves Grand Theft Auto
  • Tara describes him as physically attractive, but not so much maturity-wise.
