Not to be confused with Genn, the book character who appeared in Kai: Ninja of Fire.
“Eh, here's my theory on how to help the evil ninja destroy the good ninja. Look what happens when positive energy connects with negative energy. So, if an evil ninja manages to connect a single blow against his opposite, that same spark should be so powerful as to eradicate the good ninja. Trust me. I'm, like, an evil genius.”
— Gene to the other Darkley's students, "Double Trouble"

Gene is one of Lloyd's former classmates. Unlike Lloyd, Gene was a competent villain-in-training, being able to lead his fellow students in devising evil schemes to overcome their enemies.

Sometime after Double Trouble, Gene is enrolled in Wu's Academy and was one of the people that visited New Ninjago City and was present in the aquarium during Pythor's Electro-Cobrai heist, under Dareth's supervision. He can be seen with a device of some sort, fiddling with it in the Ninjago City Aquarium entrance hall.

History

The Tall Tale of Clancee (non-canon)

Gene was one of the Darkley's students standing in a line with young Clancee.

Double Trouble

Gene participated in a deviously thought-out plan to ambush the ninja and turn Lloyd back to the side of evil. He, alongside other students, sent the ninja a fake invitation to lure them to Darkley's, where he and other students disguised a skeleton model as their principal and imitated his voice. When the ninja entered the principal's office, Gene welcomed Lloyd to the new "Darkley's Boarding School for Worse Boys" before knocking the ninja out with sandbags.

When Lloyd awoke and found himself tied up with rope, Gene was among other students who interrogated the defenseless Green Ninja. Lloyd questioned the whereabouts of his comrades, but Gene just assured him that they would be better off without him.

As the evil ninja broke into the school in search of their good counterparts, Brad ordered Gene along with the rest of the "spitball brigade" to attack. Once that plan failed, Gene accompanied the "smoke ball brigade" in an assault—though this flopped like their former plan. In a final attempt to defend themselves they employed the "dodge ball brigade", but ended up calling a hasty retreat once their enemies began retaliating.

Later, as the ninja took on their evil copies, Gene became fascinated by the fight, commenting it was similar to fighting a mirror, as their abilities were too evenly matched to hit one another.

In the classroom, Gene lectured his fellow students on his idea to help the evil ninja. Though at first it seemed the other students did not follow, upon Gene assuring that he was a genius, Brad happily agreed to his plan. However, as Lloyd spoke up about Brad's good-willed actions in the past, the latter admitted that he enjoyed planting flowers, much to Gene's dismay. The students then joined Lloyd's side and untied him, at which Gene said "My dad is gonna be so mad," to which Lloyd says "Yeah, join the club."

Afterward, Gene sewed with the other students and dressed in a blue ninja suit in Lloyd's plan to thwart the evil ninja. The Darkley's students then rushed into the fray, assisting the ninja by confusing their copies with the ninja suits they created.

Ninjaball Run

Along with Brad and other Darkley's students, Gene entered the annual Ninjaball Run in a modified school bus. Before the race began, he sabotaged the ninja's Ultra Sonic Raider with the help of another student from Darkley's. When the race began, Gene and his fellow students were right in the middle of the pack, taking a moment to run Captain Soto's pirate bus off the road and into the side of Crashcourse Canyon.

Unfortunately for Gene, the ninja repaired the Raider and quickly caught up to the others, passing the Darkley's students as the racers entered the Glacier Barrens. During a clash between the ninja and the Serpentine forces of Lord Garmadon, the Darkley's students ended up in a massive pileup with the Ultra Sonic Raider, Ed and Edna's jalopy, the Mailman's bike, and the Serpentine Bus.

The Surge

Gene remained at Darkley's when Wu took over and it became Wu's Academy, and was present in Kai's class learning about Ninjago's history when Brad took control of Zane using an ultra-remote. Gene did not accompany the rest of the students for their tour of Borg Tower for unknown reasons.

The Curse of the Golden Master

Gene was present at the aquarium field trip, which was under Dareth's supervision. He can be seen with a device of some sort, fiddling with it in the Ninjago City Aquarium entrance hall.

The Titanium Ninja

After Zane's sacrifice, a ceremony was held in his honor. Gene sat next to Sally during the statue unveiling.
