Finn Collins is a main character in The 100. He is one of the Delinquents sent to Earth to see if it can support human life. Finn is the head tracker of the Delinquents. He is the ex-boyfriend of Raven Reyes and is in love with Clarke Griffin.
Finn is introduced as a reckless, 'bad boy;' always on the verge for a blast of adrenaline and always looking for danger. He is quite protective over Clarke and the decisions she makes, always sticking by her side and helping her out whenever she needs help. Finn is always running, looking for fun and adventure; he is playful, cunning and amusing. Later in the series, he seems to become more peaceful, avoiding killing people and trying to form peace treaty with the Grounders.
Finn Collins is a well built teenage boy. He has light-dark brown hair, that reaches just above his chin, until in His Sister's Keeper, Raven cuts it about an inch shorter. His eyes are the color of dark brown, blending into the color of his face.
Not much is known about his life before coming to Earth so far, but Clarke mentions that he was arrested for going out on a space walk that cost them a month's worth of oxygen. Because he was under 18, he could not be executed and was sent to prison instead. He was sent down with the rest of the prisoners to Earth to see if it was sustainable for life.
Finn is first seen while the space shuttle is descending down to Earth, and he has detached himself from his seat. He is floating around and teasing Clarke Griffin, who promptly tells him to sit back down. Two other boys follow him, and let themselves float in the ship as well. It is shown that after the ship landed, the two other boys perished, while he managed to survive. He eventually meets up with Clarke and volunteers to go with her to Mount Weather. The group consists of Clarke, Octavia Blake, Monty Green, Jasper, and himself. He shares a sweet moment with Clarke in the luminescent forest, and he tells Clarke that not everything on Earth is like they expected. After Jasper saved Octavia from the snake, he helps make a vine swing to get across the water. Finn is seen cheering when Jasper makes it across, but quickly gets the rest of the group to get down and take cover once Jasper is pierced with the spear.
Finn refuses to go with Clarke to search for Jasper. Clarke gets upset with him and calls his "space walker" nickname a joke and then calls him a coward. Monty tells Finn that Jasper looked up to him. Wells tells Finn to help build the wall around camp and then proceeds to make a promise to watch after Clarke as she searches for Jasper. Later on, as Murphy, Bellamy, Wells, and Clarke begin their search for Jasper, Finn catches up with them. Finn is quick to break up an argument about taking off Clarke's wristband and Clarke points out that Finn is better late than never. Finn agrees. They finally find Jasper tied to a tree. Clarke falls in a trap, a huge hole with grass covering the opening, which is presumably made by the Grounders. Finn and the others help pull her to safety. Finn and Murphy go to cut Jasper free of the ropes holding him on the tree. Finn helps the others bring Jasper back to camp. Later, Bellamy is cooking and serving the other campers an animal that was shot after trying to attack the group who were searching for Jasper. Bellamy makes them take off their wristbands for food, which most do, but Clarke refuses. Finn assures her she doesn't have to. He then proceeds to walk over and take a piece of the freshly cooked meat. Murphy tries to stop him by asking him if he plays by different rules but Finn simply states that there are no rules. Finn and Clarke eat together.
Finn, Clarke and Wells go on a run to find medicine for Jasper. They find seaweed, but are caught by the poisonous fog and forced to flee. The three comes across a buried vehicle and enter it, staying there for a while. Finn finds whiskey and drinks some. He talks about fun with Clarke and Wells and tries to keep peace between the two. They stay there over night. The next day, Finn, Wells and Clarke return to camp. On the way back, Finn talks to Clarke about forgiving Wells and after Wells reveals the truth, she does. Finn is relieved to know that Jasper survived.
After Wells' death, Finn is present as people wonder who murdered him. He watches as Murphy is beaten and hung and is tasked by Bellamy to protect Charlotte, after she says she killed him. Finn guides her and Clarke into the woods and hide in a buried house. He falls asleep there and wakes up later on, noticing that Charlotte has vanished. Him and Clarke run outside and search for her, finding Charlotte with Bellamy. They reach a cliff and are cornered by Murphy's followers. As Charlotte is haunted by her murder, she jumps off the cliff, shocking Finn. He then watches as Bellamy punches Murphy to the ground and banishes him from the camp. As Finn looks down on Murphy with pity, he drops a knife for Murphy to survive with and returns to camp. That night, Finn returns to the buried house and proceeds to have sex with Clarke.
Finn and Clarke wake up and watch Raven's pod, believed to be a shooting star, plummet to the surface of Earth. Him and Clarke return to camp by morning. Immediately, they realize Bellamy is gone and they head toward the pod wreck. Bellamy got there first, but Finn is happily reunited with his girlfriend from the Ark, Raven. Clarke is visually upset by this and Finn apologizes. After finding Bellamy in the woods and confronting him. Bellamy reveals that he threw the radio from the pod into a river and him, Clarke and Raven are angered by his actions. Eventually, Bellamy decides to form a search party for it with Finn being one of the members. After learning that the radio won't work, Finn returns to camp with the search party. He assists the other Delinquents in building a rocket launcher and watches with Raven as the rockets launch into space through the night sky. Clarke's mother, Abby and Wells' father, Thelonius Jaha notice the rockets from the Ark.
Finn is seen receiving a haircut from Raven in a tent, when Bellamy begins rallying up Delinquents to help look for his sister, Octavia. Finn insists on going and follows Bellamy into territory belonging to the Grounders. He runs away as the Grounders attack. When the fog horn is blown, Finn hides under a tarp with the other Delinquents. Later on, Finn is present when they find Octavia in Lincoln's hands. He attempts to fight him off, but is stabbed and goes into a high fever, being rushed back to camp.
Raven and Clarke are tending to Finn, who has a high fever and a knife stuck in his chest. The two contact the Ark and speak with Abby, Clarke's mother about the situation and she guides them through it. Clarke removes the knife from Finn and he suffers, but is helped by Raven. Clarke manages to get an antidote from Lincoln to cure him and it works. Clarke and Raven then take turns embracing him.
Finn is still recovering from his injury in the previous episode. Clarke tells Raven to keep an eye on him and reminds her to check on him every so often. When Raven checks on him, she kisses him which ultimately leads to them sleeping together. As the camp begins hallucinating due to some nuts they ate, Monty enters the tent and asks for help. He catches Finn and Raven off guard and they tell him to leave. Raven goes outside to deal with the situation while Finn continues resting inside the tent.
When everyone is celebrating Unity Day, Finn spots Octavia leaving the camp. He follows her and finds her kissing Lincoln. Finn then asks Lincoln for peace with the Grounders. He tells him that he will bring his leader and they will bring theirs. Finn then informs Clarke about the meeting. She asks Bellamy to come as back-up in case the grounders attack them, and doesn't tell Finn. He, Clarke and Octavia then go to a bridge where the meeting takes place with Bellamy, Jasper and Raven as back-up. The grounders begin to negotiate but when Jasper finds some drawing their arrows in the trees he tells Bellamy and they attack. Finn along with Octavia and Clarke run.

Finn and Bellamy have a neutral relationship and mutual respect for one another. However, in Twilight's Last Gleaming, Finn confronts Bellamy after he tossed Raven's radio in a river. His words result in Bellamy forming a search party for the radio. In recent episodes there seems to be some chemistry between the two. Later, Finn volunteers to help Bellamy in the search for Octavia, even sustaining a wound during a confrontation with the grounder Lincoln. Despite the initial neutrality, towards Bellamy, as of Day Trip Finn, seems to be developing some jealousy towards Bellamy over his growing chemistry and friendship with Clarke.

Raven and Finn were dating before the 100 were sent down to Earth. They met when they were younger when Finn shared food with Raven when her mother would sell her rations. Raven risks her life to come down to Earth to finally be back with Finn again by updating a 100-year-old space pod and going down to Earth with it. She finds out that Clarke and Finn had sex and is upset, but does not hate either of them for it because Finn assumed he would never see her again. She is upset when Finn is injured at the end of His Sister's Keeper. When she is injured, Finn tells her that he will always love her, and she replies that though that may be true, he still doesn't love her like he loves Clarke. She breaks up with him then and there.
Finn had been stabbed and poisoned by Lincoln in self-defense. Even when tortured he refused to tell the delinquents the antidote to save him, and only did so when Octavia risked her own life by cutting herself with the same poisoned knife used to stab Finn. Despite this and what his friends and girlfriend had said, he still forgave Lincoln for what he had done.
