During Dedication his colder side is revealed as he attempts to assassinate the Freelancer. However he fails and gets executed in the process.
Wren has brown charmer hair along with a black Halcyon operative outfit. He is seen wielding a UP9 in Dedication and is fond of codewords and stealth, as pointed out by the dialogue lines in The Blacksite and The Freelancer.
Overall he seems to be calm and decisive. He speaks in a professional manner and never jokes during important missions. Wren is also very loyal to Halcyon, as he calls it his family.
