Gavin Reginald "Spinner" Mason is a member of the Degrassi class of 2007. He is occasionally a bully and prankster. Connor DeLaurier is among his targets. But after a tragic incident involving his best friend Jimmy Brooks, Spinner begins to reform his bad boy ways, even finding Christianity. After an expulsion, he eventually returns and becomes more of a jock and class clown, able to find the joke in anything, although a fight with cancer temporarily clouds his outlook. After graduation he works at and manages The Dot.

He is also friends with Marco Del Rossi and Jay Hogart, but clashes with Johnny DiMarco.

Background: He lives with his mother and his sister Kendra, who is adopted.

He has ADHD, for which he takes Ritalin. His hyperactivity is the source of his nickname.

He is the drummer for the bands Downtown Sasquatch and the Studz, with Craig, Jimmy and Marco. Spinner struggles to do the right thing and gets frustrated easily, but he is generally a good friend to the people he cares about.

After graduation he marries Emma Nelson in a stupor in Vegas, making Archie Simpson his stepfather-in-law. He has previous romantic encounters with Emma's best friend Manny Santos, who goes on to marry Spinner's best friend, Jay. He occasionally mixes up words (boring into "submersion" instead of "submission.")
