Interests and Other InformationEdit
Karner graduated from Roosevelt High School, which is the same school Maddie Cinder attended. It is not known whether Karner blackmailed Amy Martin into joining the Future Agents or not, but is possible because of Martin's stubbornness. Karner works well with kids, which would explain his patience with Cinder.
Karner is doggedly loyal to his country and would sacrifice his life to protect his home and his family. He spends a lot of time in his office relaying messages to Willis and giving advice. Karner reopened Case-Suzuki because he was the one who found Dr. Neil Suzuki alone and alive in the conference room. But in the original case, the video recording would not play, so the case was never solved and was instead dismissed.
Karner only drinks when he is feeling frustrated. Karner enjoys joking with Li Willis, who is rumored to spend time with the Karner family often. He is open-minded, but knows when something is a serious threat to society.
Karner is very interested in politics and considers himself a Republican, though he claims to have voted for people on both sides of the spectrum. He tends not to talk politics because he doesn't want to bother anyone.
In the MovieEdit
Karner plays a key role in the movie as he is the one who reopened Case-Suzuki . Karner had previously gathered a large sum of information and evidence regarding Suzuki's guilty verdict. He gives this information to Willis and points out a new agent he has recruited. He believes she is the key to solving Case-Suzuki.
Karner continues to organize meetings with big leaders in the Future Agents Branch and helps get his Segment closer to solving the case, but is suddenly faced with an issue that inhibits him from continuing. He allows Willis to take over for the rest of the case.
