Ned is a rogue hacker/identity thief recruited by the FBI. He specializes in finding useful and potentially embarrassing information, and doesn’t hesitate to use unorthodox methods to achieve results. On one job, he stumbled on some information about the paranormal that mattered too much to the Feds to let him walk. Since then he cooperates with the law out of necessity, and his checkered past helps his superiors ensure he complies.
