Kal Varrik, aka Griffin Jones, aka Six, is a main character that appears in Season 1 and 2 of Dark Matter. He is portrayed by Roger Cross.

Biography

Griffin Jones, aka Six, may look intimidating, however, he has a heart of gold. He is extremely intelligent and has the ability to handle issues and disappointment with strength and grace. Despite his memory loss, he has demonstrated a singular aptitude for piloting the Phantom class shuttle Marauder.

Prior to being on the Raza, Griffin was a part of the Procyon Insurrection.

Episode One revealed Griffin is on the Galactic Authorities Most Wanted List for murder, assault and smuggling.

In Episode Two, Griffin decided to help defend the Mining Colony. In order to send Ferrous Corp a message so that they wouldn't send any more ships to the planet, he came up with an idea to take out the FCS Deliverance in The Marauder, even though it was probably suicide. He was going to go along with it anyway, however he never got that far as he was taken hostage by Voss, Hagen and Tomas. He was let go after the Ferrous Corp Destroyer was forced to leave.

Episode Six revealed Griffin used to be part of a rebel group called "The Insurrection" that is against the Galactic Authority. He unknowingly helped cause a bomb to go off on Hyadum-12 that had been set to blow once they jumped into FTL in the Galactic Authority Destroyer they stole. The bombing killed ten thousand people and Griffin became very ill, throwing up when he heard the news. Then after being told of the plan The General made and being confirmed in his involvement he killed the bomber and then proceeded to kill the rest of the gang, who drew their weapons at him. After they where taken care off he proceeded to put a gun to his own head and pulled the trigger to commit suicide, however the gun was empty.

In Episode Eight, Griffin used Transfer Transit to go after The General. He tracked him down and killed him, only to realize it was just a clone and the real General is still out there.

In Episode Thirteen, Griffin was revealed to have been the traitor of the crew. Delivering the Raza into the hands of the Galactic Authority.

In Episode Fourteen, it is revealed that Six' real name is Kal Varrick and he is an operative with the Galactic Authority, with Griffin Jones only being his undercover alias so he could become a part of the Raza Crew.

In Episode Fifteen, Kal turns his back on an obviously corrupt system and undertakes measures to break out his friends. However, as the Crew was boarding their escape shuttle, Kal still debated whether or not to join the Raza again when he was shot. Two/Portia and Three/Boone brought him on board where Devon checked his injuries. As he is unable to stop the bleeding completely and the Raza's medical supplies have been seized, the only way to save Kal is to put him in stasis for the moment.

In Episode Seventeen, Six is brought out of stasis and Devon operates to stabilize him.

In Episode Twenty-One, it was revealed that Kal Varrik had been the one that had uploaded a virus to the ship's computer pre-stasis which had disabled the Raza, leaving it dead in space when they had first awakened on the Raza. He had also been the one that had emitted the subspace distress call in order to make the ship easier to track.

In Episode Twenty-Four, Six tries to convince Two to use the blink drive to become intergalactic cops. They would be against both the Galactic Authority and the Corporations.

Alternate Versions

Alternate Kal Varrick-2

AU 21's Kal Varrick

In Episode Twenty-One's alternate universe, it was revealed that their Kal Varrik had attempted to disable the Raza and sent out a subspace distress call to make the ship easier to track by the GA. He then sent a data burst to GA Central Command to inform them of his developments. In the middle of his transmission however, Kal was found out and had been consequently murdered by his universe's Portia Lin before he could follow through with his plan. This resulted in his universe's crew not suffering from amnesia.
