|Owain Peter Vine|
|Place of origin:||Earth|
|First seen in:||The Forgotten Son|
Owain was born on 16 April 1951. He lived with his parents, George and Shirley, and his twin, Lewis, in Bledoe, Cornwall. His father decided to move there when his boys were very young, hoping the country life would be better for his family than the big city. Owain was an supporter of Arsenal Football Club, but not much of a reader.
In March 1969, the Great Intelligence appeared to Owain as a ghostly boy called Gordon. It used Owain to fight Alistair at Remington Manor in Cornwall, but Owain discovered he was the reincarnated soul of James Lethbridge-Stewart, the soul that would one day evolve into the Intelligence. He used his connection with the Intelligence to help Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart. He twin, Lewis, was killed by the Intelligence, and following the final battle, Owain decided to leave Bledoe and travel. Neither Owain nor Lethbridge-Stewart were quite show how to explain the connection between them, and settled on looking at it as an uncle/nephew relationship. (PROSE: The Forgotten Son)
Owain spent the next couple of months travelling the UK, and hooked up with several people. For a short time he lived in the back of a VW van with Mike and Daisy and others. During that time he became a part of the counter culture movement, and a supporter of CND. He became interested in Buddhism, and the teachings of guru Paramahansa Yogananda. He spoke to his mother every now and then on the phone, but wasn't ready to return home until he had dealt with the death of his twin. He was travelling with Jennie Rudge in April 1969, who was teaching him guitar, when he came to the grand re-opening of the Fang rock lighthouse. While there he befriended BBC3 cameraman Jim Saunders and witnessed the arrival of a Rutan shuttle pod. He called in Lethbridge-Stewart, and assisted him, Anne Travers and Lance Corporal Bishop in uncovering the mystery of the Fang Rock ghosts. He was astral projected back in time to 1902 with Bishop, the experience making him ill. He also sprained his ankle, but was still able to help kill the reaming Rutan. (PROSE: Beast of Fang Rock)
In an alternative timeline in which the Intelligence was no beaten by the Doctor, Owain was targeted by the Intelligence once it discovered its earlier soul within him. He was rescued by the Royal Green Jackets, before the Intelligence subsumed their minds. He was last seen being taken to London by Rifleman Bishop, before the timeline was restored.. (PROSE: Legacies)
