Wheatley was already on Isla Nublar gathering up different species of dinosaurs and having them loaded onto his ship, the Arcadia. He claimed the big herbivores were easy to capture. [[Blue (Velociraptor)|Blue]] ("the blue one," as Wheatley called her) had so far eluded the mercenaries. When [[Owen Grady]], [[Claire Dearing]] and the rest of the Dinosaur Protection Group arrived via plane, Wheatley greeted them at the airstrip. He was very boisterous and friendly, insisting on building a good working relationship with Claire, calling her by her first name, and calling Owen "the raptor wrangler."

Wheatley and his team accompanied [[Claire Dearing|Claire]] and the Dinosaur Protection Group to Isla Nublar to round up the dinosaurs and deliver them to another island reserve, since a volcanic eruption is imminent and will kill all the dinosaurs. However, after Owen tracks down the last surviving ''[[Velociraptor]]'' [[Blue (Velociraptor)|Blue]], Wheatley and his men betray [[Owen Grady|Owen]] by capturing Blue before leaving Owen, Claire and [[Franklin Webb|Franklin]] to die while keeping [[Zia Rodriguez|Zia]] to perform surgery on Blue since he needs her alive. As it turns out, [[Eli Mills]] plans to capture all the dinosaurs and sell them off as sentient weapons for profit, and that Wheatley is involved with it as he intends to collect a 'significant bonus' for his assistance. To that end, Wheatley and his men managed to capture several more dinosaurs before transporting them into their ship through cages while collecting their teeth as trophies to make as a necklace.
   
Wasting no time, Wheatley loaded the new arrivals and his men into two Caiman armored cars and drove off towards the main area of the park, an Oshkosh truck with a cage for Blue following. Throughout the trek, Wheatley was friendly and sympathetic towards Owen and Claire. When the duo were silent and melancholy as the group rode towards the Innovation Center on Main Street with the [[Indominus rex]] happened, Wheatley asked "Bad memories...?"
+
After reaching to the mainland, Wheatley soon learns that Owen and his friends have evacuated. To that end, he gets several of his men to capture them at gunpoint before putting them in a cell per Mills' orders. With the dinosaurs delivered to the auction, the event is disrupted when Owen releases a ''[[Stygimoloch]]'' to cause havoc, sending several people to flee away from the scene. In the ensuing chaos, Wheatley looks for Mills demanding his bonus before he attempts to go inside the cage of the genetically engineered dinosaur, the ''[[Indoraptor]]'' to retrieve one of his teeth as a trophy for his necklace, shooting him with a tranquilizer dart to keep him from attacking him. However, Wheatley soon discovers too late that the dinosaur was only faking its sedation, allowing the ''Indoraptor'' to sever and devour his arm. The ''Indoraptor'' then proceeds to maul Wheatley to death before escaping from his cage and killing more people including [[Gunnar Eversol]].
 
Although friendly with Owen and Claire and even tolerant of the perpetually nervous [[Franklin Webb]], Wheatley found himself often butting heads with [[Zia Rodriguez]]. His old-fashioned attitudes about women found him insisting she remain behind rather than accompany him and Owen to look for Blue, but she convinced him she needed to come just in case the [[Velociraptor]] required medical attention.
 
 
Wheatley showed his true colors when he not only didn't care about the death of one of his own men who Blue attacked, but tranquilized Owen and left him behind to die by the erupting volcano after securing the raptor. He also took Zia prisoner (at her own insistence) so she could treat Blue, as the mercenary she'd killed had shot her in reflex. Driving back to the mercenaries' camp on the coast, Wheatley phoned [[Eli Mills]], his partner in crime, informing him of Blue's capture and demanding a bonus.
 
 
During this time, Wheatley and his team somehow even managed to capture the island's ''[[Tyrannosaurus rex]]'', flying her by helicopter to the ''Arcadia''. While rushing to load all of the captured dinosaurs aboard the ''Arcadia ''Wheatley took the time to indulge in his macabre hobby; he collected teeth from animals he'd captured or killed, and dinosaurs were no different. Using a pair of pliers, he extracted a tooth from a tranquilized juvenile ''[[Stegosaurus]]'' before having it loaded onto the ship. He and his men then fled the destruction of Isla Nublar, not realizing that Claire, Franklin and a recovered Owen had survived and obtained a Mercedes-Benz Unimog truck the mercenaries left behind on the pier in their haste to evacuate, which they drove onto the departing ''Arcadia ''while everyone was distracted watching the spectacle of the erupting Mount Sibo.
 
 
The ''Arcadia'' journeyed to the US. Wheatley continued hounding Mills about his bonus during the voyage, but Mills insisted he'd get it upon delivery of the raptor, whose life Zia saved with a blood transfusion from the ''Tyrannosaur''. Arriving on the mainland United States, the convoy of captive dinosaurs drove towards Lockwood Manor. A guard at the front gate, who'd been on the island, recognized Claire and Owen driving the Unimog, alerting Wheatley, who took the pair prisoner.
 
 
Mills continued to blow off Wheatley regarding the bonus for Blue. After Claire and Owen escaped from captivity in the bowels of the mansion, releasing a [[Stygimoloch]] named "Stiggy" to disrupt the auction of the ''Indoraptor'', Wheatley, who was hanging around outside while awaiting his payment, beheld the startling and inexplicable sight of hundreds of people fleeing out the rear loading entrances of the house, harassed the entire way by the escaped Stiggy.
 
 
Deciding he'd had enough, Wheatley went inside in an attempt to demand his bonus from Mils and found his way to the auction room, where he was amazed by the sight of the caged ''[[Indoraptor]]''. He was confused by the animal, as he hadn't been in on Mills and Dr. [[Henry Wu]]'s plan to develop a hybrid and didn't recall capturing this particular dinosaur on the island earlier. He shot the hybrid twice with his tranquilizer rifle. Commenting on its toughness, he prepared a third dart when suddenly the ''Indoraptor'' collapsed. Cautiously, Wheatley unlocked and entered the cage, intending on collecting one of the (to him) mysterious dinosaur's teeth as his payment for services rendered. He didn't notice the cage door swing shut behind him.
 
 
Commenting that the ''Indoraptor'' was "some kinda hotrod," he took out his pliers and began attempting to prise one of its teeth loose. "Open wide!" he grunted, struggling. Suddenly the ''Indoraptor, ''which had been faking, attacked Wheatley, tearing off and eating his arm in front of him as he screamed and cried. The beast loomed over him for a moment, nudging his hat off almost playfully as the terrified hunter sobbed and begged for mercy before it roared in his face, lunged forward, and mauls him to death.

Ken Wheatley is a Jurassic World minifigure introduced in 2018.

Background

Ken Wheatley is an experienced mercenary and hunter who is in command of the rescue operation of the dinosaurs on Isla Nublar.

Wheatley and his team accompanied Claire and the Dinosaur Protection Group to Isla Nublar to round up the dinosaurs and deliver them to another island reserve, since a volcanic eruption is imminent and will kill all the dinosaurs. However, after Owen tracks down the last surviving Velociraptor Blue, Wheatley and his men betray Owen by capturing Blue before leaving Owen, Claire and Franklin to die while keeping Zia to perform surgery on Blue since he needs her alive. As it turns out, Eli Mills plans to capture all the dinosaurs and sell them off as sentient weapons for profit, and that Wheatley is involved with it as he intends to collect a 'significant bonus' for his assistance. To that end, Wheatley and his men managed to capture several more dinosaurs before transporting them into their ship through cages while collecting their teeth as trophies to make as a necklace.

After reaching to the mainland, Wheatley soon learns that Owen and his friends have evacuated. To that end, he gets several of his men to capture them at gunpoint before putting them in a cell per Mills' orders. With the dinosaurs delivered to the auction, the event is disrupted when Owen releases a Stygimoloch to cause havoc, sending several people to flee away from the scene. In the ensuing chaos, Wheatley looks for Mills demanding his bonus before he attempts to go inside the cage of the genetically engineered dinosaur, the Indoraptor to retrieve one of his teeth as a trophy for his necklace, shooting him with a tranquilizer dart to keep him from attacking him. However, Wheatley soon discovers too late that the dinosaur was only faking its sedation, allowing the Indoraptor to sever and devour his arm. The Indoraptor then proceeds to maul Wheatley to death before escaping from his cage and killing more people including Gunnar Eversol.
