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 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 and died shortly after in a Washington hospital. Scully sadly realized she had never known Pendrell's first name after his death.
