Welcome to Jericho.

Jericho is an abandoned freighter in Ferndale, Detroit, that has become a refuge for deviant androids in Detroit: Become Human.



The first deviants discovered Jericho in an unknown time and settled in it. After that, some deviants in Jericho distribute the locating data of Jericho only to trusted androids. Only by decrypting the clues of location data, which can exclusively be done by androids, can they reach Jericho, as a measure to prevent humans from finding and killing the deviants that live there.

The residents salvage blue blood (Thirium 310) and Biocomponents from other androids who have shut down for repairs, but the materials have always been insufficient and there are only 19 androids still functioning. As a result, the citizens are slowly dying out until the arrival of Markus.

From the Dead Edit

Markus encounters an android, Phileas in an android junkyard, who tells him to find Jericho which is a place where they can be free. Phileas gave Markus a copy of his key to locate Jericho before permanently shutting down.

Jericho Edit

Ferndale the subway stop artwork has secret drawings, which lead you to Jericho upon scanning them.

Time to Decide Edit

Markus meets Simon, Josh, North and others who reside in Jericho. After exploring for a bit and talking to them, Markus comes to realize that the androids are slowly dying from Josh. He then tells Jericho that there are some android parts in the warehouses and convinces them to help for the sake of their lives.

Crossroads Edit

If Connor finds the location to Jericho, he will encounter the deviant leader (Markus or North) and has the choice to stay a machine to accomplish the objective of killing the deviant leader or to become deviant. The U.S. Army and FBI Agent Richard Perkins raid the ship and destroy the deviants that have used the place for refuge.

If Markus is not killed by machine Connor or the U.S. Army, he will detonate explosives installed in the ship, sinking it and preventing the army from capturing and destroying the androids in it by forcing Perkins to sound a retreat. If he is killed, the army secures several hundred androids in Jericho's hull, who are taken away and subsequently destroyed.[1]




Notes Edit

  • After Markus's arrival, a hierarchy is established. Markus serves as leader while North, Josh and Simon serve as his advisors and lieutenants.
    • Should Markus die or leave Jericho, North takes over.
  • When Markus arrived, the ship was falling apart to the point he literally "dropped in" on the 19 original inhabitants.
    • After the chapter Freedom March, the ship appears to have been repaired (so the numerous androids in the organization can move around freely) and equipped with generators (which can be detonated), along with television equipment and computers in the "hub" area.
  • According to Mikael Leger, one of the concept artists of the game, developers planned to have an underground fighting club where deviants fight each other in Jericho. However, the idea was scrapped.[2][3][4]
  • The symbol Markus follows to reach Jericho is the same with one of the symbols escaping slaves followed in the Underground Railroad to reach freedom.[5]
  • The ship shares its name with an existing city, in Israel, which was founded in 9000 BC and it is believed to be one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.
    • According to the Bible, Jericho was also the site of battle which is possibly referenced when the U.S. Army storms Jericho later in the game.
