Otis (? - October 31, 1985) was a large, African-American convict who was incarcerated in Sing Sing penitentiary. On October 26, while in the cafeteria line, he was behind Walter Kovacs, who was also imprisoned. Otis started talking to him, preparing to stab him with a tool; before Otis could cause him any harm, Kovacs seized a vat of hot cooking fat and doused the hulking convict, causing "horrific" burns.

Otis languished in the prison hospital for several days and died on Halloween. One of Kovacs' old enemies, the Big Figure, seized upon Otis' death to start a prison riot as a distraction to gain entry to Kovacs' isolation cell and kill him.
