Woz is sometimes called Woz the Whiz. He is the ships hacker and maintains the ships software. He and Jobs were originally stowaways aboard the Gekko but they were invited to stay because of their technical skills. He and Jobs tend to argue over how best to configure the Gekkos systems since Woz insists on rewriting the control systems to compensate for every modification Jobs makes while Jobs asserts that the software is fully capable of supporting the changes. His hippy attitude and grunge attire are a deep contrast to Jobs but they seem to maintain a strong friendship anyway. He is modeled after Steve Wozniak hence Woz another of Apples cofounders.
