— 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 of the Illuminati 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.
- 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.
