A 34-year-old Caucasian male from Detroit, Michigan, Adam Jensen is an ex-cop turned private security specialist for Sarif Industries, a moderately sized biotechnology company based in North America. He is what you would call a “working class hero”: dependable, resourceful, curious in a stand-offish way, with a streak of hardcore cynicism mixed in.
Having joined the Detroit police force at 21, and then volunteered for its SWAT division four years later, Jensen rose to team commander quickly. But his career ended suddenly two years ago when he refused to follow a questionable order. Today Jensen tends to be a loner, rather than a leader. He believes there are multiple ways to achieve a desired result, and instinctively looks for answers from himself first, consulting others only after his own ideas are exhausted.
