Omar Little aka Omar the Terror

Kima: "He fierce?"

Bubs: "That nigger don't play."

Omar grew up in the West Side, went to Edmundson High School (same as Bunk). Recently released from Jessup Penitentiary. Makes his living ripping & robbing drug dealers and others in "the game".

Never explained, he has a scar that runs from the middle of his forehead down his right cheek, near his nose.



McNulty:"Kid had heart."

Omar: ".....yeah...."

Omar's young lover. Is he fierce? During the stash-house heist, he knocked Stinkum the gunman around pretty good, and took charge of the hoppers while Omar yielded his shotgun. He endured torture, or, as McNulty described it, being killed 4 or 5 times, rather than reveal Omar's whereabouts to Avon Barksdale's enforcers who had kidnapped him.  



John Bailey

Omar: "I'm just a nigger with a plan, man."

Bailey:" And a shotgun."

Third member of Omar's stick-up crew. He originally ran with Omar's older brother, No-Heart Anthony.
