Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
John Murphy is better known as Murphy. He is one the 100 of the Delinquents sent to Earth to see if it is inhabitable.
He has brown hair that hangs just above his ears. He has dark blue eyes and is relatively slim.
Murphy seems uptight but also a strong person who gets into fights quickly. Because of his violent ways to solve problems he has a tendency to try and use force rather than thinking something all the way through. On many occasions people have had to hold Murphy back, suggesting that he had a quick temper. Though he is seemingly "controlled" by Bellamy Blake but there are times when he defies him. Murphy holds a grudge for a long time; his quest to be free from the rules and to have power proving him dangerous.
Murphy and Bellamy were friends at first, but later became enemies. In the Pilot, Murphy was recruited as one of Bellamy's thugs. Him and John Mbege assisted Bellamy remove the wristbands from the Delinquents. In Earth Skills, Murphy continues to follow Bellamy's orders and removes wristbands from the delinquents. In Earth Skills, Murphy tags along with Bellamy on the hunt to find Jasper. In Earth Kills, Bellamy and Murphy toss knives at trees together, but later frustrates Bellamy when he calls Octavia psychotic. In Murphy's Law, Bellamy takes part in the accusation that he killed Wells even though it was Charlotte. These events severed their friendship and later led to Murphy's banishment from the camp. In the process, Murphy was beat up by Bellamy before the final verdict.
Murphy and Mbege are depicted as best friends. They are often seen in each other's presence throughout the Pilot and Earth Skills. However, in Murphy's Law, Murphy is banished and Mbege follows Bellamy's orders. Mbege returns to camp rather unaffected by Murphy's banishment.
Murphy and Clarke have a hatred towards each other. However it is shown in Murphy's Law that she recognises him as person and refuses to let him be executed, but later allows the banishment. He is spared because Clarke suggested a new set of laws and rules to Bellamy.
Murphy and Wells dislike one another. In the Pilot, Murphy and John Mbege attack Wells after rudely speaking about his father. Finn saves Wells and later that night, Murphy and Mbege remove Wells' wristband forcefully. In Murphy's Law, Murphy was accused of murdering Wells and as a result was beaten and hung.
