Becky Byrd (daughter)
Tall, strong, and in-shape, even though his work doesn't involve much physical force. He has closely-cropped blonde hair he usually slicks back, and he has slight wrinkles on his face.
Cool, slick, and always thinking. He cares deeply about his work and even more for his daughter and boyfriend.
Deep and calm, with the faintest British accent.
Raised until he was 10 in England, Byrd had a fairly average early life, always excelling at science and English in school, when he joined the military at 18 for basic training. His first crush was on another man in his squadron, provoking months of confused orientation searching. He had a lengthy career, during which he adopted his daughter Becky from the scene of a murder-suicide. He peacefully lived in Westbury with her for some years, until Pinhead Miyamoto selected her to kidnap for a stunt.
Byrd is desperate to turn the village back into a safe place for his family. Since Jason's data breach, he's terrified Miyamoto will reveal Becky's parentage.

Openly Roman Catholic, but accepting of others unless mocked.
