Character Bio

Demetri Noh photo
• FBI Agent-- Mark Benford’s partner at the Los
Angeles Field Office.

• Met Fiance Zoey when she wiped the floor with
him while cross-examining him for a case.

• Member of a band for much of his 20s-- has a
hard time saying no to Karaoke.

Before the Blackout

Demetri Noh attended the FBI Academy with Janis Hawk. On the day of the blackout, Demetri was on a stakeout with his partner Mark, investigating a terrorist cell suspected of planning an attack in the near future. During the stakeout, he discussed his wedding plans with Mark, explaining that Zoey wanted their first dance to be to the song "Islands in the Stream". He expressed his dismay at this musical choice to an unsympathetic Mark.

A few minutes before the blackout, they saw two of their suspects, Khalid and Omar, depart in a black SUV with an unidentified woman. They attempted to tail the SUV surreptitiously, but were spotted, and a high-speed chase ensued. Demetri was highly agitated by his partner's driving and said that he'd "never done this before." In the middle of the chase, the global blackout occurred.


Demetri did not have a flashforward during the global blackout, and was simply unconscious for the two-minute-seventeen-second duration of the event. He is thus a ghost. This may be due to the fact that he will be murdered on March 15, 2010, a month and a half prior to the time of the flashforwards, according to a woman who calls him.

After the Blackout

In the immediate aftermath of the blackout, Demetri and Mark attempted to render assistance to the injured, and tried in vain to contact FBI headquarters and their families. They saw the black SUV they were chasing, and found their suspects dead, but took the unidentified woman into custody. Demetri questioned her aggressively, believing that she was to blame for the disaster around them, but she described an experience of being "somewhere else", describing a storm, and frightened horses. Demetri was confused and continued to behave aggressively toward her, but Mark held him back, pointing out that the carnage around them did not look like the results of a dirty bomb of the sort they suspected the terrorists of having.

When Mark and Demetri heard from an onlooker that the disaster extended to "more than just L.A.", reaching at least to San Diego, Demetri told Mark to go to his family, since Zoey was out of town (specifically, in Seattle) anyway. After some hesitation, Mark agreed, leaving Demetri with their prisoner.

Later, Demetri arrived with the prisoner at FBI headquarters, where he heard another agent, Al Gough, speaking with Mark about his flashforward. When Demetri asked what that meant, Mark told him that he'd explain later. Demetri learned of the visions that most others experienced as he listened to the following discussions, and later from watching news coverage of the event.

Demetri's supervisor, Stan Wedeck, assigned Mark, Demetri, and Janis Hawk to take point on the Mosaic Investigation, the inter-agency taskforce formed to investigate the global blackout and the flashforwards. Demetri objected to the absurdity of assigning them to the task simply because Mark had a vision of working on that investigation, but Stan overruled him. Later, while helping Mark to start organizing the investigation, he confessed to his partner that he did not experience any vision of the future. Although Mark suggested that perhaps he would simply be asleep at 10 pm on April 29, 2010, Demetri dismissed this explanation, saying he didn't even remember dreaming, and told Mark that he thought it meant that he would be dead in six months.

That night, while working late with Janis, Demetri checked in with Zoey on the phone. Their call was soon interrupted by Janis, who had something to show Demetri. She played for him a surveillance video of a man walking around a baseball stadium during the blackout, while everyone else was unconscious - a promising new lead for their investigation.

Three days later, Demetri, after following Janis' advice to post his flashforward on the Mosaic Collective, received a call from an unknown woman. The woman tells Demetri that she read his name in an "intelligence briefing" during her own flashforward and that he would be murdered on March 15th, 2010.

Following the two ambushes against the FBI agents, Noh and Al Gough examined the corpses of the men who attempted to kill Janis Hawk, then followed a lead based on a Blue hand symbol to a residence where several bodies were discovered. One of those bodies had the United Kingdom passport of Ian Rutherford.

NSA analyst Levy reveals that the NSA recorded Nhadra Udaya and Demetri Noh's phone call. (Believe) The FBI are able to convince her to hand the recording over to them, whereupon the FBI is able to analyze the phone call and determine that it was placed from Hong Kong.
