The year is 2048. Meet John Kennex, a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, he can’t remember much – except that his partner was killed; his girlfriend left him after the attack; and he lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage.

Character Bio

Dorian photo
Dorian - "'Synthetic, off...' Does that mean you want me to be quiet?"

Dorian is a "flawed" DRN series android that was designed to be a partner for a human detective with the Police Department.

Spoilers Ahead!!!

Technician Rudy Lom introduces Detective John Kennex to Dorian. He possesses some level of emotional awareness that the MX-43 series lacks, and he was mothballed after these emotions were deemed a "flaw." After Detective Kennex terminated the MX-43 unit that was assigned to him (by way of an "accident"), it is decided that this flaw would be a good match for Detective Kennex. Since Detective Kennex too has "issues" of his own, making Dorian more relatable to him.

Dorian was decommissioned in January 2044, 4 years and 3 months before he was re-activated to partner with John.

A Luger Test had been previously administered to Dorian. He does not believe they are an accurate test. It is unknown if he passed or failed the test.

While Dorian has been designed to respect the chain of command, there are questions as to why the Captain chose to pair him with John Kennex. John has been told by Sandra that they were paired together because they were both "special", but she has not enlightened John any more than that. Large sections of Dorian's past have been redacted from the report on him.

Sandra treats Dorian like any of the other officers under her current command.

Dorian has been moved out of the Precinct housing with the MX-43s, at his request. He now resides with Rudy Lom in his Laboratory.

Personnel Notes (For eyes only - Clearance D5 or above)

*** Recently reactivated after four-year offline status. Before assignment to human partner (John Kennex, Det.), model 0167 was scheduled for transfer to fedgov agency NASA to assist in external vehicle repair, suborbital C.N.A. Space Station. History prior to PD assignment: [REDACTED]

*** 0167’s legacy operating system is designed to emulate human emotion. (TechFile #45RPC6, See SubSection: SYNTHETIC SOUL OS) According to recent A.I. subroutine analysis, model is “highly intuitive” and “resourceful.” Capabilities include Vi-Fi integration with PD Database, wireless comm, C.S.I.-level field lab analysis (inadmissible, requires HQ results confirm), and others. (Specs avail: Attachment DRN_0167-REF)

*** NOTE: 0167 is obsolete hardware. Most DRN models remain offline due to unpredictable “emotional” behavior. (Ref TechFile above, See SubSection: E.S.S. Events).
