Alan Chen was an investigator for the Los Angeles civilian police oversight commission.


In October 2032, Chen was assigned to investigate Officer Alani Davis, who pursued Elle, a suspect in the murders of Senator Arthur Bannister, Police Chief Earl Grant, and Josephine Grant. Davis recounted her investigation, insisting that Elle was a replicant, a statement that Chen dismissed, due to the 2023 ban on replicant production. However, Davis stood firm in this belief and convinced Chen to assist her in following up on a lead that took them to the Nevada desert.[1]

In the desert, they found several corpses and the charred remains of an automobile. Chen ordered a crew to retrieve and identify the bodies and assured Davis that these findings would change her career.[1]
