Vincent Parry was a property developer and former slum lord in Cardiff. Despite his belief in "Wales for the Welsh", he accepted Ro-Jedda's gold to provide housing for the arriving Sorvix, making him rich. As a reward, she gave him Orr, who acted as his late first wife, Catrin.
Parry struggled to clear the Refugee Crisis Centre and get planning permission to build luxury flats there. After Ro-Jedda to give him a forty-eight hour deadline to sort accommodation for a hundred more Sorvix, he asked the Mayor for protection and was sent Jack Harkness and Tyler Steele. He told them about his situation, after which he was shot and killed by an assassin, using his last breath to tell Tyler to protect Orr. (AUDIO: Orr)
