|M. F. Harris|
|Portrayed by||Cle Bennett|
|First appearance||Dark Matters, Part 3|
M.F. Harris is an agent working for Renautas.
Harris overhears Quentin arguing with the Globus Bio Solutions recruiter about her rejecting Phoebe's application because she is an evo. He introduces himself to Phoebe afterwards, and tells her that she could apply for a job at Renautas instead, since they welcome the hiring of evolved humans into their business. He gives her a business card and watches her leave with her brother, who is suspicious of Harris.
When Quentin asks Aly where Phoebe went, she shows him Harris's business card. Quentin recognizes it and says "Oh no... this guy".
Later, as he enters Renautas Headquarters, Quentin looks at Harris's business card again.
Harris and his team storms the Olympic Coin Laundry and Harris tries to take down Quentin. Harris thanks Quentin for bringing Renautas to Hero Truther's hideout. Immediately after saying this, a goateed invisible man knocks out Harris with a fire extinguisher.
Harris (Prime) enters as a security supervisor at the Yamagato Tower who defeats Miko after she takes down the security guards in the main lobby. He relieves Miko of the Kensei sword and delivers it to Erica, who orders him to find out more. Prime attempts to interrogate Miko about her father's disappearance and her acquisition of the sword, but is interrupted by Ren. Distracted by Ren, Harris' left forearm is cut off with a meat cleaver. His stub regrows into a functional arm, and his severed limb grows into a whole Harris clone, who good-naturedly returns Prime's watch. Harris travels to Midian with Erica, where they pick-up Molly Walker and set her up for E.P.I.C and the Renautas keynote address. During the E.P.I.C announcement, a Harris clone is dispatched to the Arctic Circle to find Malina.
As Quentin, Noah, and Taylor break into Renautas Headquarters in Midian, three gun-wielding Harris clones attempt to prevent their entry into the compound. All three are shot and killed by Noah, whose party enters the room holding the evos Renautas has captured. After Molly Walker's suicide, Harris (or a duplicate) enters the room and sees her corpse, long enough to ascertain that she killed herself with a gun. Shortly after, he (or a duplicate) is seen reporting the death and the identities of the intruders to an irate Erica Kravid, who instructs him to go after them himself — with the aid of "The Shadow".
Harris displays the ability to create a duplicate of himself from his severed hand. It is noted that this ability resembles regeneration more than the cloning displayed by individuals like Eli, as tissue growth is very clearly involved in the process of creating a duplicate. Rapid tissue growth appears to cause both the formation of the duplicate from the severed appendage and the healing of the injury that caused the appendage to be severed (Under the Mask). It is also noted that the clones collapse into a white, granular substance resembling salt when they expire (The Needs of the Many).
As of now, it remains unclear as to how much control the "prime" or original Harris has over his duplicates, and whether dismemberment is the only way he can create a clone of himself. The duration for which the duplicate survives is also unknown. (Under the Mask)
In addition to creating a duplicate of himself, Harris's clones are also able to duplicate the clothes that the prime is wearing, but not vice versa. For example, Harris once had a clone duplicate the prime's entire suit, but the prime did not duplicate the watch that the clone was wearing (the watch that was on the severed hand). (Under the Mask)
- In the Inside the Eclipse for Under the Mask, Seamus Kevin Fahey pointed out the Harris's full name is "M. F. Harris". He said, "We'll let you decide what the M and the F stand for," implying that it stands for the curse word "Mother F**ker".
