Zeke Calvin is the NIA field agent who instigated the Niantic Project and recruited all of its members, as well as many previous projects related to XM research. During Abaddon, it became known that Calvin created the Niantic Project with the mission of turning the Researchers into Simulacra and that he may be a member of the Anti-MAGNUS. After Niantic dissolved, he went to work at IQTech and became its CEO until his disappearance. The Enlightened captured his shards during the Abaddon Anomaly in Oakland. He has re-awoken as a Enlightened-leaning Simulacrum at the end of Abaddon and is now back at IQTech.
