Carl is a recurring character appearing in Season 1, Season 2 and Season 5 of Killjoys.

He is portrayed by actor Jameson Kraemer.


Carl is a Company Guard assigned to the Prisoner Intake Facility[1] and Westhole Prison[2] in Old Town.

Carl was on duty at the prison when a Company ship crashed into the building, breaching the walls of the Blue Unit. When he realized that prisoners were escaping he followed protocol and pressed the "red button" in the guard control room. He thought pressing the button would release a gas that would knockout the prisoners, instead in released the Aridity Solution which killed the prisoners except Tarren Tighmon and Buck Welnar. Tighmon came back after the escape to take the weapons in the prison armory and a canister of the deadly gas.[3]

Later, the Killjoys team came to the prison to find the prisoners on their warrant and Carl told them about the effects of the gas and gave D'avin a gas mask in case he came in contact with the deadly toxin.

Afterward Carl became a source of contraband for the residents of Old Town, smuggling in food and other items through his position as a Company Guard.[4]


Jameson Kraemer was the "male utility reader" at every script read-through for Season 2 of Killjoys, and was cast as Carl after reading the role during the Wild, Wild Westerley table read because he constantly made everyone laugh.[5]
