Owen Mallory was the head of the Cyprus Adoption agency, an organization that kidnapped young women to give birth to children, which would be put up for adoption. He appeared in "The Cyprus Agency".

BackgroundEdit

Born as "Michael Shaw", Owen Mallory was adopted by Charles and Jill Lassiter, but returned to foster care due to psychological problems. He later felt resentment towards his former adoptive parents for their lack of preparation prior to adopting him. He told Elizabeth Keen that the Lassiters saw him more as an accessory to their lives than as a child.

"The Cyprus Agency"Edit

When the FBI searches through the agency's records, Mallory meets with them and assures his full cooperation, and orders a shutdown on all kidnappings until the FBI investigation cools down. When he hears that the van driver kidnapped another girl to replace their escapee, he kills the driver and dumps the van in an abandoned building.

When Donald Ressler and Liz come back to the agency to speak with Dr. Gideon Hadley, Mallory has the doctor run and hide while he runs as well. He encounters Liz in the room with all of the kidnapped women, and tries to kill her. He's shot in the arm by Ressler and interrogated later on by Liz. During the interrogation, Mallory proudly boasts about being the father of all the children that his agency has put up for adoption. This deeply disturbs Liz and pushes her away from the decision to adopt a child.

TriviaEdit

  • In Ovid's "Pygmalion", the character Pygmalion is disgusted by the women who surround him in Cyprus. He carves an ivory statue of a woman, which he calls Galatea, and falls in love with it. Aphrodite ends up turning the statue into a real woman for him. Galatea is essentially too perfect, an idealized woman that couldn't exist in reality. Owen Mallory felt this was how the Lassiters felt about adoption, they wanted the perfect image of a child rather than a real one with flaws.
  • The Cyprus Agency's use of a white dandelion, which scatters its seeds for them to grow independently, as its logo hints at how they provide children for its clients.
