- For other uses, see Kevin (disambiguation).
Kevin was initially a nameless, tertiary character who served little purpose in the show and was shown in the background on multiple occasions, however, he has his first speaking role in "Conjoined Fetus Lady", where he is referred to as "Kevin" by Stan. Despite being depicted as white, he is revealed to be Chinese-American in the episode. Kevin's most notable trait is his Star Wars obsession, seen in both "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers" and again in "Fatbeard". Kevin is described by Trey Parker as the kid who is "always screwing up the whole show".
He is first referred to by name in "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig" by Mr. Garrison as "Casey", but is referred to by Stan in "Conjoined Fetus Lady" as "Kevin". After that, he has consistently been referred to as "Kevin".
During the thirteenth season, the character Kevin Stoley was referred to off-screen in "Fishsticks" and revealed later in "Fatbeard" to be Kevin. Also, in "Lice Capades", when Cartman was attempting to reenact the blood test scene from The Thing, one of the blood containers was labelled "Kevin", confirming that is his name.
In "My Future Self n' Me", it was vaguely hinted that his last name was "Brooks", as his parents were referred to as Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, however, since, he has not been called that name but is officially known as Kevin Stoley.
Kevin wears a sky-blue jacket with a red collar, red gloves, and dark blue trousers. His hair is black, and the style is similar to that of Stan's. The light blue color of his jacket explains why in the ancient scripts he was written as "Sky".
He is supposed to be of Chinese descent, but he appears not to have the "slanted" eyes stereotype featured in many of the Asians in the show. This is likely because he was conceived in America, and so appears as a Caucasian. It is also possible he is only half-Chinese, presumably with a Chinese mother and American father, as "Stoley" is not a typical Chinese name. This backs up Chef's statement in "Conjoined Fetus Lady" that people should not be teased or discriminated on account of their race or religion, but that it's okay to tease people on account of their nationality. Trey Parker's original script for "Conjoined Fetus Lady" refers to him as looking like "any other kid, except he has black hair." However, his parents as seen in "My Future Self n' Me" and "T.M.I." do not look Chinese, and the episode "City Sushi" implies Tuong Lu Kim and Junichi Takiyama to be the only Asian people in the town, although Lu Kim is later revealed to not in fact be Chinese.
In terms of attractiveness, Kevin is ranked #9 on the rigged list for the cutest boys, created by the girls in "The List".
Kevin's personality is little-known, but he is known for his Star Wars obsession, which he consistently annoys other characters (mainly Cartman) with - in "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers" he is wearing a Stormtrooper mask while meeting with the other children in their Lord of the Rings outfits, and in "Fatbeard" he brings along a green lightsaber instead of a sword as a member of Cartman's pirate crew. Kevin also has a tendency to ruin the moment for the other children, usually with a Star Wars reference. This will usually exasperate his classmates, but Cartman in particular, who will often respond with, "Kevin, god damn it." or "Kevin, Jesus Christ." An example is in South Park: The Stick of Truth, where he references Star Trek in an irrelevant situation, "Let us charge our shields and use photon torpedoes to vaporize the Klingons!" and Cartman responds, "Kevin, god damn it, every fucking time Kevin, god fucking damn it seriously." This could imply that Kevin isn't only a fan of Star Wars, but movies in the sci-fi genre in general. In the entire "Black Friday" trilogy, he plays "Spock" from Star Trek, and in South Park: The Stick of Truth he is also seen in the same attire.
There is a possibility that gaming might be one of Kevin's hobbies, in "Best Friends Forever" Kevin was lined up outside a shop to get a Playstation Portable, with several other children. Also, in "Make Love, Not Warcraft", it is shown that he is trying to help defeat the high levelled player, though it is impossible to tell which character he is playing as. It would not be odd if Kevin liked gaming, as he loves Star Wars.
It was mentioned in "Conjoined Fetus Lady" by Kevin that he's from America but his parents are from China.
The BrooksIn "My Future Self n' Me", a couple known as the Brooks hire a man vaguely resembling the Kevin character (who has the same sky-blue/red color scheme and similar hairstyle) to keep their son out of drugs by using him as a "future self" decoy. Although the child is referred to as Kevin, it is unsure if "Kevin Brooks" and Kevin were intended to be the same character as the animators tend to reuse similar-looking models for different characters. The same parents reappear in "200" and "201" in crowd scenes and with the other parents in "T.M.I." which seems to confirm them as Kevin's parents. These characters are called into question as Kevin himself is never seen with them. As seen with characters like Jimmy Valmer, Clyde Donovan, and Token Black, Parker and Stone have been known to change or forget characters' last names, meaning these could be Kevin's parents and his name was originally Brooks, but later changed to Stoley.
In South Park: The Stick of Truth, the player can visit the Stoley Residence and see a picture of Kevin with parents different than those seen in "My Future Self n' Me".
Kevin's exact relationships/friendships are virtually unknown due to him only making a handful of speaking appearances, and he is implied to be unpopular, but in "Insheeption" he is shown sitting at lunch with the main boys and there are a few characters he is particularly often seen with in the background.
During early seasons, Kevin and her were often animated together, sitting together at lunch for most of the first four seasons including during Damien Thorn's attack in "Damien", and in "Sexual Harassment Panda" where they trade fruits. They're also seen together in crowd scenes, talking in "Gnomes" before class starts, and shown at the movies together in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.
During "Hooked on Monkey Fonics" he is seen alone at the dance near her while she dances with Token. However, since the first four seasons the two only occasionally appear together in newer episodes such as "Lice Capades", in class in "Fatbeard", and arguably "Super Fun Time". They were together on Wendy's debate team in "Chef Goes Nanners", Red was also one of the girls hitting on him in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset".
In "Skank Hunt" it is revealed that the two had been in a relationship for an unspecified period of time prior to their break up. Kevin is notably shocked and can be seen weeping in the hallway staring at Red's note at the end of the episode.
During Seasons 9 to 13, after the lunch room was re-designed, Kevin was usually seen eating and talking with Bradley in a table near the cafeteria doors, and in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", along with Francis and Timmy. They are also seen together in "Lice Capades", where they are the two boys who hold back Kenny during his trial, as well as being the ones to remove his hood. When Bradley was formally introduced in the "Coon 2: Hindsight" story arc, his given personality was also similar to Kevin's - in fact, a Star Wars-esque poster is seen in Bradley's bedroom.
Kevin is seen hanging around with Timmy, Bradley, and Francis in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" and later is seen talking with Timmy, along with Jimmy and Pip, in "South Park is Gay!" The two have seldom been seen together since, but it is of note Timmy's special character design causes him to rarely be seen in the background.
Like everyone else in the school, Kevin probably despises Cartman, however he has never shown it and has actually aided him on a few occasions. Cartman is indifferent to Kevin most of the time. He had no qualms about accepting Cartman as a leader on numerous occasions, meaning either he is a person who likes to follow orders more than give them, is too passive to fight back, or he trusts Cartman to some extent. In "Fatbeard" Cartman calls the pirate crew meeting at his house, with Kevin expressing surprise. It's unknown if Kevin joined the pirate crew by choice. Cartman is annoyed by Kevin's love of Star Wars, as shown in "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers". However, in "Tweek x Craig" Cartman is seen hugging Kevin, though Kevin does not return the gesture.

- Cartman says "Kevin, god-damnit" when he seems annoyed by him.

Kevin is abundantly seen in the background of Mr. Garrison's classroom, however this is not the case in Season Fourteen, though he can still be seen in the hallways and in the canteen, or in the playground.
