— Spoilers for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided follow!
Shortly after the Illuminati orchestrated events in Dubai, where both members of the Jinn and Task Force 29 were attacked by gold-masked mercenaries in a failed attempt to secure military-grade augmentations, Rand met with the Council of Five in a NSN meeting to discuss their next move. It was agreed that Rand would travel to New York with Stanton Dowd to provide political and economic pressure to ensure that the Human Restoration Act would pass.
When Adam Jensen interfered with the Illuminati's plans in London, Rand voices his anger during another Council of Five meeting, noting that all of the them should have been informed of the actions other members had put into play. Lucius DeBeers calmly tells him that changes are always going to occur in the field, pacifying him.
- Being a canon newcomer, Rand was the only Illuminatus to not make an appearance whatsoever during the events of Deus Ex or its sequel.
- It is unclear precisely how old Rand is, though he was designed to look younger than his actual age according to his section in the Art of Deus Ex Universe collection.
