"Dammit Jerry...the fight never left you, did it?"
―Clive's last words.[src]

The Owl (Real name unknown), also known as Clive Cross is an ally and best friend of Gerald Wilkins and later revealed to be a Nazi spy and the secondary antagonist of the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus DLC The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins.

The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins[edit | edit source]

"I'm a spy, you dolt! I've always been part of the German Empire! "Clive Cross" isn't my real name, I stole these dogtags from some Untermench's corpse! Surrender!"
―Cross reveals his true colors to Wilkins.[src]

His real name is unknown, as he irritably states that he stole the name from an Untermensch (lit. "Subhuman";person who is racially or socially inferior in the eyes of Nazi Germany) and played the role as an American soldier, in response to Captain Wilkins assuming that Cross had been captured. Clive Cross formed the Scorpions along with Captain Wilkins after D-day to fight the Nazis. However, due to Clive's meddling with their activities, the group eventually fell apart causing Wilkins to go into hiding for many years without knowing that his second-in-command was a rat all along. Cross went by the alias "The Owl" to send letters and messages to the Nazis, but it's uncertain if this was before or during the events of the game.

He eventually caught up with Gerald's daughter, Ginny and managed to contact and find Wilkins. After tricking them to get to Alaska's base to destroy two supercannons, he revealed his allegiance to the Nazis and threatened Gerald to surrender or else he would use the cannon to shoot at Ginny's position. However, Gerald managed to sabotage the supercannon's shell with explosive causing the cannon to explode near Clive's position.

As Clive was buried under the rubble of the cannon, Gerald executed him for his treachery with a shot to the head.
