The Owl House Wiki

Augustus "Gus" Porter is a supporting character of The Owl House. He is a friend of Luz, Amity, and Willow who attends the same magic school as them.



Appearance

Body

Gus is a young boy, noticeably shorter than Luz, Amity and Willow, with brown skin and dark brown hair with lighter shades. His upper lip is curved, similar to Luz. Like all the witches and demons on the Boiling Isles, he has pointy ears.

After going through witch puberty, Gus has become taller than before, almost the same height as Luz and Willow. Additionally, his face features have become sharper and angular, and his eyes now have visible pupils.

Clothing

When attending Hexside, Gus wears a grey tunic with a dark grey belt, cowl, and boots. As he is part of the Illusion track, the color of his sleeves and leggings are a desaturated turquoise. When not at Hexside, he wears a green tunic with white sleeves and a black belt. He also wears black tights and brown boots.

Personality

Gus is a young and precocious witch. He is known for being very enthusiastic and excitable; when Luz gives him his nickname, he flips out in sheer joy. Due to being an illusionist, he tends to have a dramatic flair when making statements and presenting things.

He has a huge interest in researching human culture, also happens to be somewhat of an expert on it, and was the President of the Human Appreciation Society at his school, even though his knowledge on humans is often inaccurate.

In contrast to his usual gleeful attitude towards most activities and interactions, Gus has admitted to being rather insecure in regards to his age. He feels neglected due to being younger than most others and as such tries acting assertively so as not to be left behind. This has also led him to become very welcoming towards newcomers since he can easily understand and empathize with people in the same situation as himself.

Relationships

Luz Noceda

Luz and Gus in "Hooty's Moving Hassle".

Being an enthusiast on the human culture, Gus is ecstatic to have a friend like Luz. Luz is the one who nicknamed him Gus. He is eager to learn more about human traditions from her, like the high-five or even about human buckets, treating Luz almost like an almighty being. When his title in the H.A.S. has threatened in "Something Ventured, Someone Framed", he lies to Luz about her school ban out of desperation, which leads to them getting into trouble. He takes responsibility for his actions so Luz would not be punished.

In "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", when Luz comes to visit him while giving him various nicknames, he's able to quickly deduce that her reason for stopping by is so that she can borrow his library card in order to visit Amity. He also talks to her about how he is considering looking into other types of magic after having doubts about illusions.

Willow Park

Willow and Gus in "Hooty's Moving Hassle".

Gus and Willow are good friends. Willow is one of the few friends Gus hangs out with on a regular basis other than the H.A.S., and he was Willow's only friend at the time before Luz came along. Gus has a close relationship with Willow, as seen in "Wing It Like Witches" when Boscha is picking on Willow and took her hair clip, Gus snatches it out of her hair and gives it back to Willow. Willow also shows genuine concern when Gus almost gets hurt during the thorn vault, and offers to help fix his broken flags. Gus is also seen cheering for her during the Grudgby game.

Mattholomule

Gus and Mattholomule in "Something Ventured, Someone Framed".

Though Gus welcomed Mattholomule to the H.A.S. with open arms, he quickly began to despise him because of his attitude, and when he challenges for his spot as club president and outs his friend, Luz to the school guards.

In "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", Gus and Mattholomule continue their rivalry while on a quest for the Galdorstones. However, after being pushed around by Bria, Gavin, and Angmar, Mattholomule decides to help Gus scare them away from the ruins, recalling how Gus helped him escape detention and that illusion magic isn't as useless as he thought. Afterwards, Gus asks whether or not the two have become friends, to which Mattholomule responds that he is not sure. While walking away, they jokingly punch each other on the shoulder and laugh, implying that they did become friends.

King

Gus letting King become his co-emcee in "Enchanting Grom Fright".

Gus doesn't have much interaction with King until "Really Small Problems". In the episode, Gus tries to baby King, much to his annoyance. While struggling to break free, the liquid given by Obvioso to King slips from his pouch and drops to the ground. Some of the liquid from the bottle splashes onto Gus and Willow, making them shrink. Gus is angry at King for making him become smaller, and even calls him a "monster" at one point. Later, King risks his life to save him, Luz and Willow. When King tries to give him and Willow a piece of broken bracelet each as a form of apology, Gus accepts it, saying he always wanted to own a jagged piece of cheap metal.

In "Enchanting Grom Fright", he let King become his co-emcee on Grom night. He becomes concerned when King suddenly runs away from the stage, and had a conversation with him after he finds him outside. He finds out that King has stage fright and encourages him to face his fears. His encouragement boosts King's confidence and makes him go back to continue hosting the show.

In "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", it is shown that Gus convinced King to help him record a greeting on his answering machine.

In "Eclipse Lake", he and King bring music from the basement in preparation for Belos' attack while Luz is sick with the Common Mold.

Amity Blight

Gus and Amity in "Escaping Expulsion".

Gus used to not like Amity, because of her treatment of Willow. However, after Willow makes up with Amity, he considers her one of his friends. Even though he didn't have much interest in "Understanding Willow", Gus shows genuine concern when Amity is voted grom queen in "Enchanting Grom Fright", and cheers for her and Luz when they defeat Grom. In "Wing It Like Witches", he and Amity seem to be on much friendlier terms, and he welcomes her into the house along with Luz, Willow, King and Eda. They are much closer in "Escaping Expulsion", as Amity is sad that he, Luz, and Willow are expelled from Hexside, which is caused by her mother Odalia. She is also the one to get him and tell Willow that Luz was in danger. While fighting the Abomaton, she refers to him as her friend. In "Eclipse Lake", he helps Amity while Luz is sick with the Common Mold.

Powers and abilities

  • Magic: Gus is studying to become a professional witch. Like all witches, his magic comes from a sac of magic bile attached to his heart. Despite the general rule of restricting magical learning to one area of study, Gus has displayed skill in multiple fields.
    • Illusion Magic: Gus specializes in magic that involves manipulating perception. These illusions can interact with physical objects and people.
      • Glamour: Gus can change his or a person's appearance similar to a transformation.
      • Illusion Duplication: Gus can create tangible copies of himself and others. He can use a copy to take his place when he goes out of class; the copy is independent and sometimes won't do what Gus tells him to do unless Gus uses intimidation.
      • Illusion Construct: Gus is able to use his magic to make the shapes of everyday objects. As seen in "Really Small Problems" when he used his magic to make the shape of a vacuum to scare the animals. Gus is even able to make floating captions as seen in "The First Day" when he tried to use one to congratulate Luz on getting into Hexside but accidentally used the wrong caption.
      • Illusionary Terrain: As seen in "Through the Looking Glass Ruins" Gus can cover an area about a hundred feet radius with very convincing phantasms. In that instance, he was able to convince Bria that the cemetery's statuesque headstones had turned into demonic angels weeping bleeding tears, that her hands had turned to dust, and that a statue resembling her own corpse was clawing at her. Additionally, he could mask the constructs of her magic and make her spell circles appear to crumble when she drew them to make it appear as if her magic wasn't working. However, he stated afterward that this sort of illusion is difficult and exhausting to cast and maintain.
  • Strength Enhancement: He can enhance the physical abilities of magical beings, like how he makes Willow's plant monster stronger and more muscular.
  • Orator/Comedian: He's excellent at keeping a crowd entertained, as he does in "Enchanting Grom Fight".

Voice

Debut

Gus debuted in the episode, "I Was a Teenage Abomination".
