Masrani Global Corporation (S/F)

MasraniLogoMasrani Global Corporation, often shortened to Masrani Global or simply Masrani, was first established in 1973 by Sanjay Masrani with the founding of Mascom Network in India, its retroactive first subsidiary. Mascom spent ten years honing their craft and were on air by 1983, providing 45 channels across the Indian subcontinent for the next nine years until Sanjay’s unfortunate passing in 1992.

Mascom was then passed down to Sanjay’s son, Simon Masrani, who expanded Mascom’s success, but also took the company further. In 1996, Masrani founded Masrani Oil (later renamed Masrani Energy in recent years)  in Abu Dhabi. Despite its status as the youngest oil company on the planet, it was the third largest source of revenue for the newly minted Masrani Global Corporation between 1997 and 2004 and put Masrani on the world business map, as well as supplying 21% of the world’s transportation industry today. As well as telecommunications and oil, Masrani Global also has subsidiaries in the fields of construction, mining, health care, technology, and real estate.

In 1997, with the passing of Dr. John Parker Hammond, Masrani began talks to acquire International Genetic Technologies, Inc of Palo Alto, California. By 1998 the talks had been completed and InGen was officially a Masrani subsidiary, and the years of 2002 to 2004 saw the efforts to construct a new park on Isla Nublar begin to be undertaken, which was opened in 2005, christened Jurassic World, which was open for the next ten years until an unfortunate incident which saw the death of Masrani Global’s CEO among others, leading to the company’s current financial crisis and uncertain future.

Gray Mitchell (S/F)

Gray Mitchell was the younger brother of Zach Mitchell, and the youngest son of Scott and Karen Mitchell. Gray was highly intelligent, socially awkward, and obsessed with dinosaurs; his room littered with figures and Gray Mitchellposters of the prehistoric creatures. He and his brother were sent to Jurassic World to spend a week with their aunt, Claire Dearing, as their parents finalized their divorce.

Once the brothers reached Isla Nublar, they were entrusted under the care of Zara Young, Claire’s personal assistant, as Ms. Dearing was too busy with work. While visiting the Gentle Giants Petting Zoo, Zach forcefully suggested they leave Zara behind while she was distracted by a phone call. The two brothers explored the park at their leisure; Gray spouting dinosaur facts along the way.

While riding on the monorail, Gray divulged to Zach that he suspected their parents were getting divorced as he had discovered letters from various lawyers. Zach initially brushed it of since it wouldn’t of affected him as he was moving out in two years, but upon noticing that his brother was struck with grief, he attempted to comfort Gray by remarking that he would be getting “two of everything” now. Gray simply replied, “I don’t want two of everything”.

Zach and Gray were later attacked by the Indominus Rex hybrid as they ventured into a restricted zone in one of the Gyrospheres. They managed to escape and ended up in the abandoned Visitor Center of the original Jurassic Park. There, they used their mechanical skill to repair a 1992 Jeep Wrangler, which they then drove back to the park.

Over the course of events that would follow, Gray and Zach began to bond and they both helped defend a Mobile Veterinary Unit from rogue Velociraptors after the failure of Victor Hoskins’ plan to utilize the animals to track and destroy the Indominus Rex.

During the chaos, Gray helped distract one of the Velociraptors by activating a Dilophosaurus hologram in the Innovation Center as the group was escaping. He would also go on to suggest that to destroy the Indominus they would require “more teeth”, which prompted Claire to release the Tyrannosaurus Rex from it’s paddock to assist in the fight. Following the destruction of the hybrid, and the evacuation of the island, Gray was reunited with his parents in Costa Rica.

Zach Mitchell (S/F)

Zach

Zachary Mitchell was the eldest son of Karen and Scott Mitchell, and brother to Gray Mitchell. He was sent, alongside his brother, to Jurassic World while his parents attended to their divorce proceedings. Zach was distant with his family and would attempt to court women whenever the opportunity arose. Before the events that transpired during their stay on Isla Nublar, Zach had a rocky relationship with his younger brother and would often insult and berate him, leading to his mother remarking that “he can be so mean” when they are left alone.

During the first day of their visit to Jurassic World, Zach found the opportunity to break free from the watch of Zara Young, Claire Dearing’s personal assistant tasked with taking care of the brothers, while she was distracted by a phone call as they were visiting the Gentle Giants Petting Zoo. Soon after, the two got on board a Gyrosphere minutes before the ride was shut down. Instead of returning as instructed, Zach convinced his brother that it would be fine for them to stay out for a while longer. They were attacked by the Indominus Rex soon after Zach piloted the Gyrosphere into a restricted area. The boys escaped and ended up in the abandoned Visitor Center of the original Jurassic Park where they found and repaired a 1992 Jeep Sahara that they then drove to Main Street.

During the ensuing chaos caused by the escape of the Indominus Rex, Zach began to bond with his younger brother and would offer words of comfort regularly. After the failure of Victor Hoskin’s plan to utilize Owen Grady’s Velociraptors to destroy the Indominus Rex, the two brothers worked together to protect a Mobile Veterinary Unit that they were riding on from the rouge Velociraptors.

Zach was present during the Indominus Rex’s attack on Main Street and aided Owen in saving Gray from the Indominus’ grasp as it tore through a gift kiosk. After the destruction of the hybrid, Zach, among the others, was evacuated to Costa Rica where he was reunited with his parents.

Delta (S/F)

Delta is one of the four Velociraptors that made up Owen Grady’s raptor pack. The velociraptors were contained in a special behavioral facility on Isla Nublar, where Owen trained and researched the animals. Delta is the second oldest member of the pack and during her creation more avian DNA was infused into her genetic makeup, more so than with the other three Raptors, resulting in more birdlike movements and actions. Most notably were her erratic head-movements and assorted mannerisms. They really conveyed a sense of eagle or hawk-like thought-processes.

Delta is present when the Raptor pack are utilised by Hoskins to hunt down the Indominus Rex before briefly joining forces with the hybrid after communicating with it. Delta joined her pack in hunting and killing members of the InGen task force before joining Blue in chasing Claire, Zach and Gray in the ”Mobile Veterinary Unit” truck.

Delta manages to sneak into the Lab before cornering Hoskins and killing him. She then chases Owen, Claire, Zach and Gray through the Innovation Center into the main hall where she is confronted by a hologram of a Dilophosaurus –  set up as a distraction by Grey – which she begins to fight briefly before seeming to discover it isn’t real and continues her pursuit of the humans.

Meeting up with Blue and Echo, after rekindling the bond they had shared with Owen prior to meeting the Indominus Delta took part in the Battle on Main Street after Blue was seemingly killed. Delta met her demise shortly after Echo’s death, being clamped in Indominus’ immense jaw and thrown to the side like a rag doll.

Echo

Echo is one of the four Velociraptors that made up Owen Grady’s raptor pack. The velociraptors were contained in a special behavioral facility on Isla Nublar, where Owen trained and performed research on the animals. Echo is the third youngest member of the pack. Echo expresses many similarities toward the originals Nublarensis Raptors within her colouration and overall look. When they were both young raptors, Echo once challenged Blue for command of the pack. Unfortunately for her, Blue was the stronger fighter, and Echo was left with the permanent scars of their encounter across her face. Because of her permanent sneer, some of the Jurassic World dinosaur handlers have nicknamed her “Elvis”.

Isla Nublar Incident

Echo and her packmates were used to stop the genetic hybrid Indominus rex’s rampage. However, Echo and her packmates were able to communicate with the hybrid, who orders them to attack the humans following them, due to the Raptor DNA secretly implanted within the Indominus. They comply and attack Owen, Barry and the members of the Ingen security team, killing a large amount of them. They caught up with Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, Gray Mitchell, and Zach Mitchell, ready to attack until Owen retains the bond once shared between the Raptors by removing the camera from Blue’s head. The Indominus Rex returns to main street, sending an attack command to the remaining members of the Raptor Squad (Blue, Echo and Delta), to attack the surviving humans but they turn on the hybrid animal, causing it to attack Blue and seemingly kill her. Echo and Delta take on the Indominus the best they can until Echo unfortunately meets her demise by being thrown into a cooking grill, incinerating her almost instantly at the hands on Indominus.

Nick (S/F)

Nick

Nick was the supervisor of the Indominus rex‘s paddock at Jurassic World. He monitored the dinosaur through security cameras located in her enclosure and operated the crane used to feed her.

While at his post, park operations manager Claire Dearing noticed the Indominus rex was no longer visible and the security cameras did not detect any thermal signatures inside the paddock. This information, combined with the presence of newly-made claw marks on the paddock’s walls, made it seem as if the dinosaur escaped. Nick, fellow employee Ellis, and Velociraptor trainer Owen Grady promptly went inside the enclosure to investigate her apparent disappearance.

As Nick analyzed the claw marks, he received a panicked message from technician Vivian, who informed him the Indominus rex was still inside the enclosure. Nick attempted to flee towards the back door, but when he realized the carnivorous dinosaur was in front of it, he opened and retreated through the main door of the paddock. This enabled the Indominus rex to escape, despite park owner Simon Masrani‘s attempts to close the door.

With the dinosaur now out in the open, Nick tried to evade her by hiding behind a vehicle. His efforts were in vain and she promptly knocked aside his hiding place. Unable to run away, Nick could do nothing but contemplate his approaching demise before the Indominus rex devoured him in a single bite.

She was among the personnel who witnessed the Indominus rex kill a worker and escape from its paddock. Shortly afterwards, Vivian attempted to alert the park that a dinosaur was on the loose, but was stopped by Jurassic World owner Simon Masrani, who believed the Indominus rex could be contained without causing a panic. However, the Asset Containment Unit teams sent in by Masrani were massacred by the genetically-modified dinosaur, which Vivian also witnessed.

Vivian was still present in the control room when Owen Grady released his raptor pack in an attempt to finally stop the Indominus rex.

After bringing them to their hotel room, Zara accompanied the brothers as they visited the Innovation Center, where they encountered Claire, and the Gentle Giants Petting Zoo.

While at the Petting Zoo, she was distracted by a phone call regarding her upcoming wedding, which resulted in Zach and Gray escaping from her supervision. Zara was unable to find them and notified Claire about their disappearance when she was told her to bring the boys back to the hotel.

Eventually, Zara discovered Zach and Gray were headed towards Main Street and was ordered by Claire to remain with them. However, by the time she reached the brothers, the area was under attack from Pteranodons and Dimorphodons that had escaped when their aviary was destroyed. In the ensuing chaos, Zara was grabbed by a Pteranodon and wound up falling into the lagoon that housed Jurassic World’s Mosasaurus. As one of the Pteranodons struggled to fly off with her above the pool’s surface, the Mosasaurus emerged from the water and ate both of them.

Blue is one of the four velociraptors that made up Owen Grady’s raptor pack. The velociraptors were contained in a special behavioral facility on Isla Nublar, where Owen trained and researched the animals. Charlie’s distinctive green striping comes from the DNA of the Green Iguana. Charlie is the youngest member of the pack, and considered to be the least-experienced of them in hunting. She was very unpredictable as she acted mostly on instinct, thus Owen kept a close watch on her. Charlie is subservient to Blue, often giving up her meat to her pack leader. In addition, she also looks to Blue for direction and guidance.

Blue is one of the four Velociraptors that made up Owen Grady’s raptor pack. The Velociraptors were contained in a special behavioral facility on Isla Nublar, where Owen trained and researched the animals. Blue is the eldest member of the raptor pack and is considered to be larger, smarter and more cunning then the rest. She is described as insisting on eating first, although Owen Grady follows the procedure of feeding her last so as to reinforce his dominance as leader of the pack. Blue gained her distinctive striped pattern due to DNA infusion from the Black-Throated African Monitor Lizard.

 

Isla Nublar Incident 2015

Leading up to the major events of the incident occurred Blue and her pack mates, Delta, and Charlie, attempted to strike Leon, a newly hired Jurassic World employee, after he accidentally fell inside when he tried to capture a pig that managed escaped its holding pen.

Blue and her pack assisted Owen and Hoskin’s InGen team track down the Indominus rex. During the hunt, once the Raptor Squad had picked up the scent of the Indominus, oddly enough the humans learnt that the hybrid animal was part raptor allowing it to communicate with the squad. It took Owen’s place as the alpha, commanding Blue and her pack mates turned against the humans. Her pack attacked many of the humans that followed them, including Barry who took refuge in a log just before Blue jumped onto it and started to try and get at him. Barry yelled “Blue” causing her to stop and look inside. Owen intervenes and whistles to get Blue’s attention, stopping her from possibly resuming her attack on Barry.

Blue and the rest for her pack later caught up with Owen, Claire, Zac and Gray in Main Street where the bond that was once shared with Owen was renewed after he removed the video camera from her head. The Indominus rex arrived, where Blue and the remaining members of the pack challenged the Indominus, resulting in the seemingly killing of Blue along with Delta and Echo.

However, she seemingly was not killed and just as the Tyrannosaur of Nublar was about to be defeated at the jaws of the Hybrid, Blue charged into the battle, distracting it long enough for the Tyrannosaur to gain her feet back and team up to take down the Indominus. Blue assisted Rexy in her fight against the hybrid pushing her closer to the lagoon, where when it was close enough the Mosasaurus lunged from her enclosure and grabbed the Indominus, dragging her to the depths of the Lagoon. After the fight, the Tyrannosaur and Blue looked at each other. There was a brief moment which could have resulted in the two animals engaging in conflict however the Tyrannosaur too injured to do anything, walked back towards the forest, seeing no need for a fight.  Blue then turned towards Owen, a brief moment between the two as to what looked like a final goodbye, where then Blue ran up Main Street and seemingly into the wild.

Three weeks before the Indominus rex breakout,Owen Grady is approached at his lakeside Bungalow by Claire Dearing, who requests that he check the paddock security of the new dinosaur.

Owen Grady later went to inspect the paddock, witnessing the large claw marks left behind by the dinosaur, presuming that it had escaped. However, to his horror, the Indominus rex was still in the paddock, and he only barely managed to escape with his life although a construction worker assisting him was killed.

Later, Owen Grady worked with the Asset Containment Unit to attempt to recapture the animal. However, this attempt was unsuccessful and resulted in the deaths of several other members of the ACU. He also drove Claire Dearing to the site of the damaged Gyrosphere in an attempt to rescue her nephews. However, they encountered also at least six dead Apatosaurus, victims of the Indominus rex.

Level Six – The Ascent: Part One (T/C)

The sixth level of Jurassic Park: Trespasser starts off in the dried-up riverbed which ended the previous level. Anne must walk down the hill and trek across, soon coming across a lone Albertosaurus, which she may be able to avoid the attention of if she keeps her distance. Not too far ahead is a Tribe B Velociraptor, where off to the right of is a cluster of boulders where human remains and a M-14 rifle lay. Farther up ahead is another Tribe B Velociraptor, and shortly ahead are two other raptors.

After sliding down a hill, Anne comes across a large boulder, where human remains and another Tribe B Velociraptor wait. After walking along for some time, Anne reaches a ridge that overlooks the ocean, where an AK-47 rifle lies on the ground. Anne must keep walking to the right, where nearby an abandoned InGen jeep sits, and nearby are more human remains followed by yet another Tribe B Velociraptor. Farther up ahead is a Stegosaurus, most of the time being attacked by a Tribe B Velociraptor.

Anne must continue walking up the hill, where to her left both a Tribe B and Tribe C Velociraptor stand, walking near another abandoned InGen vehicle. Continuing up the hill, Anne comes across more Tribe C Velociraptors, and nearby another Albertosaurus. After walking some more, Anne comes across the Mayan ruins. She must walk up a tricky Mayan maze, which is booby-trapped in places.

Moving forward, Anne comes across a Mayan village, where a group of Tribe C Velociraptors are stalking around. After exiting the Mayan ruins, Anne will find the Lava Tyrannosaurus walking around the path, where to her left is a Mayan pyramid, which is also booby-trapped. After moving past the tyrannosaur, Anne must continue up the path to a bridge, the middle part of which is missing. Anne must be careful here, otherwise the bridge will collapse.

After walking across the bridge, Anne must walk further up the path, finally reaching the end of the level.

The animal was originally described as Microceratops gobiensis by Bohlin in 1953, however the genus name was reassigned to Microceratus since the genus name was already occupied by a wasp. Microceratus was among the first ceratopsians, although its clade is more derived then Pscittacosaurs. The animal weighed roughly 14 lbs and was about 2.5 ft long.

Microceratus was one of the dinosaurs housed in the Jurassic World Theme Park on Isla Nublar.  The animal has an aggression index of ‘low’ and was one of the dinosaurs housed in the Cretaceous Cruise attraction. The Microceratus are advertised as the smallest dinosaurs in Jurassic World.
