I'll fucking do it!
— Evan, upon the beginning of his game[src]

Evan is a fictional character from the Saw franchise as well as a minor character in Saw 3D. He was portrayed by Chester Bennington.


Early Life

Evan was the leader of a group of racist skinheads. Along with his friends, Dan and Jake, and his girlfriend, Kara, he intimidated and harmed other people because of their physical differences. Due to this, he and his friends were eventually targeted by Detective Mark Hoffman, the successor of the late John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. (Saw 3D)


Evan in the trap

One day, Hoffman abducted them and placed them in a vicious trap in a garage at Pete's Auto Body, a junkyard at 58th Street. When Evan woke up, he immediately panicked as his back was glued to the driver's seat of a jacked up car. An audio tape told him that he and his friends were chosen for a deadly game due to their racism. As Evan was the leader of the group, he was the only one able to save them. The tape further informed him that he had 30 seconds to tear himself away from the seat and pull a red lever in front of him in order to stop the car from speeding up and starting a deadly chain reaction which would kill him and his friends.

Evan's corpse

When the tape ended, the timer began to count down and the car, while still being in its jacked up position, started to speed up. Incited by his fear and the frantical screams of his friends, Evan tried to get away from his seat. Despite the great amount of pain, he was able to rip off most of the skin from his back. However, he ultimately failed as the timer went off before he could free himself. This caused the jacks holding up the car to fall and Kara, who was tied up under the car, was crushed to death by the rear tire. When the car started to drive off, Dan's arms and his lower jaw, which were pierced by chains connected to the back of the car, were ripped from his body. The car then crushed through the garage door, killing Jake, who was chained to the door. Despite his desperate efforts to gain control over the car, Evan ultimately crashed head on into another car in the junkyard, which caused him to be ejected out of his car and thrown right into the other car's back window. (Saw 3D)


Shortly afterwards, the Metropolitan Police Department was informed about a car accident at the junkyard. However, when Officer Rogers, who worked for the Internal Affairs Division, arrived at the scene, he quickly realized that the supposed accident was actually another Jigsaw trap. Therefore, he called his partner, Officer Matt Gibson, who arrived shortly afterwards. Upon his arrival, he immediately listened to the audio tape, which had contained the instructions for Evan. The tape however was severely damaged. Therefore, Gibson gave it to one of the forensics for further examination. Furthermore, he ordered a coroner to take all of the corpses to the morgue as they had to be obducted immediately. The coroner followed Gibson's orders and took the corpses to the morgue for their autopsy by Dr. Adam Heffner. (Saw 3D)


Not much can be said about Evan's personality due to his short screen time, besides the fact that he was a racist like his friends, enjoying harming and intimidating people due their physical differences. However, since he was the leader of his group and his friends followed all of his orders, it can be assumed that he was a charismatic individual to a certain degree. Aside from his negative traits, Evan wasn't uncaring at all; upon becoming aware that his friends could only be saved by him, he was shown to be willing to do everything to save them even at the cost of the skin of his back. Unfortunately, the time finished and Evan ended up perishing once all his friends got killed.
