Roland Jarvis - Detailed Dossier


Excerpt from Who's who of Ingress: Roland Jarvis

Roland Jarvis was a sculptor who was brought onto the Niantic Project at CERN for his ability to replicate designs replicated from organized information from XM. He had been accused of copying his designs from another man's brain. This man would later hang himself from one of Jarvis's sculptures.

During his time on the Niantic Project, the scanner app was leaked to the public with a patch for the Enlightened purportedly made by Jarvis. Jarvis was accused but denied any involvement in the leak or patch.

When a failed XM experiment caused the facility to be exposed to high amounts of XM, Jarvis and Devra Blogdonovich escaped and separated.

Jarvis was shot and killed by the NIA, but his body later exhibited unusual properties such as regeneration.

Jarvis appears to have survived as an XM entity. He claims to be in contact with the source of the ordered data in XM known as the Shapers. His methods and communication style has made him a prominent and controversial leader of the Enlightened.

Current Status (last updated Nov. 25 2013)

Jarvis has been shattered into 13 shards by an attack by Oliver Lynton-Wolfe's experimental weapon. The Enlightened are currently trying to gather the shards at the Cupid's Span sculpture in San Francisco to try to resurrect him as a human by December 14. Reversed voicemails have been appearing on the RedX phones won by Resistance players in Vienna and Dallas.
