Henry "Hank" Johnson - Detailed Dossier





Dr. Henry “Hank” Johnson (Henry Holland Johnson of birth name) is  the star of the archeology based reality series, NOMAD, a former soldier, a scientist and  an XM Sensitive His unique skills with XM brought him to the Niantic Project in order to study his sensitivity.

Recent News

Hank Johnson announced that he will be going to Phoenix, Arizona on December 7th to film his next episode of NOMAD on the Hohokam people. The Visur report indicates that he is searching for clues to an ancient 13Magnus stronghold.

Relationship to Ezekiel Calvin

Earlier in his academic career, Hank Johnson attracted the attention of Dr. Ezekiel Calvin for his research on the ancient secret society known as 13Magnus.

The sponsorship of Dr. Calvin and his associates allowed Hank to explore the connections between XM, glyphs and the influence on different civilizations. His reality show NOMAD, often served as a cover for his research in less welcoming locations. Hank's research led him to various Anomalies around the world including Peshawar, Afghanistan, the Caddo ruins in Crossplains, Texas and the Cahokia mounds which also was the subject of his thesis. His fascination with the Cahokia Mounds in particular would ultimately lead him to side with the Enlightened faction.

Hank Johnson's special relationship with Dr. Calvin and the usefulness of his NOMAD trips may have been influential in being granted special leave from the project to film his reality show. Due to his frequent absences, he was not exposed to the massive XM surge on Epiphany night.

Hank has continued to maintain contact with Dr. Calvin after the close of the Niantic Project, performing various jobs that are only occasionally revealed. (see Ingress: Level 8 and The Alignment Ingress)

Relationship with Devra Bogdanovich

Dr. Johnson's research also led him to the Arecibo Conservatory in Puerto Rico where he met and started a  romantic relationship with a younger Devra Bogdanovich. Together, they published a paper on a series of glyphs that resurfaced years later during 13Magnus.

He would encounter Devra again at the Niantic Project before she made her escape to Visur Technology. Their relationship would messily when Hank discovered that Devra had Visur spy on him during a secret meeting. (see

When they met again at 13Magnus: Los Angeles, he greeted her coldly and left stating that he didn't trust anyone anymore.
