|~ E-mail from Defalt to Aiden.|
Defalt is a disc jockey who works in Dot ConneXion at Ambrose Theatre, and a blackhat hacker for hire who works against DedSec. He seeks revenge against Raymond Kenney (a.k.a T-Bone) for having voluntarily killed his brother by causing the Northeast Blackout of 2003.
Though Defalt is a minor antagonist in Watch Dogs, his actions cause a great deal of moral damage to Aiden and his allies. He later returns as the main antagonist in Watch Dogs: Bad Blood.
