Sean Pendrell was a Special Agent at the FBI occasionally consulted by Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. He helped the agents with technological and scientific information pertaining to their cases.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Pendrell was strongly attracted to Agent Scully. Though his attraction to Scully went apparently unrequited, Sharon Graffia once referred to Pendrell as being "someone close" to Scully.

In 1995, Pendrell analyzed the chip that was in Scully's neck and was surprised to find it was very advanced. (TXF: "Nisei") He performed some experiments and made some hypotheses. He thought the chip was sensing and recording neural brain patterns. He also found what he thought was the manufacturer, a Japanese company for which no information could be found, other than a package delivery to Perkey, West Virginia. (TXF: "731")

Pendrell analyzed evidence at the scene when Walter Skinner got shot. Later, heard agents Brian Fuller and Linda Caleca explain who Luis Cardinal was. (TXF: "Apocrypha")

Pendrell looked into the five records of Social Security Administration employees who all looked like Jeremiah Smith. He found they had seemingly encrypted personal records. He showed Scully what he found and later she came back and explained that the records were smallpox vaccination records of Americans. Pendrell let Scully perform a procedure on himself to confirm some of her theory, but they still had a hard time convincing Skinner and other agents. (TXF: "Herrenvolk")

Pendrell helped Scully examine Dr. Sacks at an NASA lab. Finding him in an odd comatose state, he jerked and they had to get him to a hospital. (TXF: "Tunguska")

In 1997, Pendrell ran into Scully at a bar frequented by FBI agents. Scully was accompanied by Sergeant Louis Frisch, a key witness to the investigation of the downing of Flight 549, who was targeted by a Syndicate agent. As the assassin turned his gun on Sergeant Frisch, Pendrell got in the line of fire, returning to Scully's table with drinks to celebrate her birthday. He was shot in the chest. (TXF: "Tempus Fugit") He died shortly after in a Washington hospital. Scully sadly realized she had never known Pendrell's first name after his death. (TXF: "Max")

The Inkworks Season 4/5 trading card set incorrectly names Agent Pendrell as "Danny". They may have associated him with the Danny whom Mulder frequently mentions. However, Danny is also mentioned after Pendrell's death.
