Molly’s ex-boyfriend. Johnny worked as a human “stash,” storing sensitive data inside of his brain for high-powered, often criminal employers. However, he started blackmailing his employers with the traces of data they left behind, which caused a group of gangsters to send hit men after him, eventually killing him. Molly still feels guilty that she couldn’t save him, and as a result rarely gets close to others.
