- ―The Cleaner[src]
The Cleaner was an experienced mercenary hired by Leek's Organisation.
Pre-Series 2a mall where an anomaly opened. There, he was acting as a cleaner that had apparently been left behind when the mall was evacuated and encountered by the team. Cutter told Connor and Abby to escort him out, but on the way, he said he forgot something and went to the locker room to retreive it. There, he was attacked by a baby raptor hiding in a locker, apparently severely injuring his neck. The Cleaner then remaind unconcious while Connor tranqualised the raptor. But before Connor could bring the others, he apparentlly came to and disappeared, also wiping up all signs of blood. The team presumed that he had escaped by himself. However, this event caused his neck to be permenantly scarred.
The Cleaner, having since recovered from the raptor attack, was ordered by Leek to act as a special forces guard in the ARC to spy on the team. However, he was later spotted by Connor. But when Conner told Abby about it, she didn't believe him.
Leek sent him to a canal where another anomaly opened, again acting as special forces guard. Nick Cutter recognised him pursued him down a row of boats until he found him in a boat storage house. The Cleaner turned to face him and calmly knocked him out, he then escaped before Cutter woke up.
Later, Leek and Helen contact The Cleaner via videolink and he gives them a report on his earlier mission. He is then warned by Leek about his mistake of letting Cutter see him saying it could jeapordise "the operation" and warns him to stay out of sight in the future. The Cleaner then cuts communication.Anomaly along with his band of mercenaries by Oliver Leek. On the other side, the mercenaries sighted a little girl but The Cleaner would not allow them to go and rescue her, saying that they had a job to do, therefore ignoring the girl's cries to warn them of the Giant Scorpion. The mercenaries were then attacked by the Giant Scorpion, killing all but The Cleaner who got away with minor injuries. He then wandered the desert alone and apparantly using up all his supplies.
Cutter and Stephen found him later with nothing but a machine gun. He forced them to hand over the Anomaly Detector and their water. He shot the ground in a threat to Cutter, not knowing that it alerted the scorpions who attacked him and pulled him down so only his head and arms remained. Despite the cirumstances, he still refused to give away who he was working for to Stephen and was pulled fully under and eaten.
