Wintell "Little Man" Royce was a heavyset soldier in the Barksdale crew.


Little Man is one of five prominent enforcers of the Barksdale Organization. His responsibilities involved enforcing the regimes interests at the Franklin Towers, mainly Tower 221. Along with chief enforcer Wee-Bey Brice and fellow soldier Savino Bratton, he is involved in the planned shooting of Wendell "Orlando" Blocker.

During the ambush, Little Man specifically shot Detective Shakima "Kima" Greggs because he is surprised by her unexpected presence. Unknown to the trio, Orlando contacted the police for protection from the organization in exchange for information and his help in busting the crew. Kima's shooting is an unfortunate product of Orlando's treachery.

Russell "Stringer" Bell decides that, with the police cracking down on them because an officer has been shot, they would be better off without the unreliable Little Man, and orders Wee-Bey to kill him. The actual murder occurs offscreen, but Wee-Bey later tells the police where to find Little Man's body as part of his murder confessions to the Baltimore Homicide Department.


Wintell Royce is a recurring character in the first season. He is played by Micaiah Jones and debuts in "The Detail". Jones largely appears uncredited but is billed as a guest star for his final appearance in "The Cost".
