In the chapter "Shades of Color" he is seen in Greektown with a crowd protesting out front of the nearby CyberLife store. He rants about the chronic unemployment that is due to androids flooding the workforce and replacing human workers.
If Markus walks in front of the protest, the leader blocks his path and asks him where he thinks he is going. The crowd then surrounds Markus and one of his followers shoves him to the ground. The protest leader kicks Markus as he attempts to gets up from the ground and grabs him by the shirt. He threatens to beat Markus and make an example out of him when a Detroit police officer approaches and warns him to stop or he will give him a fine for property damage. The leader, miffed by the officer's threats, begrudgingly relents, but warns him that his job will be taken next and they will see how he likes it then.
The protest leader is an adult male with a short brown ponytail and beard. He has hazel eyes and three tattoos, two on his neck and one on his face. On the right side of his neck he has a skull crossed by guns and a three dot triangle under his left eye.
Like most people, the protest leader completely despises androids due to the fact they act like a double-edged sword: while they innovate the world, they indirectly hurt the population by replacing them and taking their jobs, leaving them unemployed. He and his followers are more than happy to interrupt and perform unnecessary violence on harmless androids like Markus and might even break them to make an example, but he can be forced to back down through warnings and threats should his actions go too far.
- The three dot triangle is a tattoo that is most commonly seen on prisoners/ex-prisoners, supposedly representing "mi vida loca" or "my crazy life". It also implies that the protest leader has a criminal record.
- Android protest leader is played by Shane Woodward, who also played the camera-holding thug named Ed from the previous Quantic Dream game Beyond: Two Souls in the chapter Homeless.
- The leader and the protesters can be avoided if Markus takes a different route that does not go right past them.
"Where the F-ck you going, tin can? Hm? No kiddin’… " - Protest leader to Markus Shades of Color.
"Hey guys, check it out, we got one of those tin cans here…" - Protest leader getting his followers' attention in Shades of Color.
