Arnold Faraday is a U.S. Congressman and chair of the Defense Appropriation Committee that controls Global Dynamic's funding, being one of the rare few in Washington 'in the know'. He is also a member of The Consortium and is working with Beverly Barlowe to gain access to Section 5 and the Artifact.
During a visit to Eureka he is abducted by Fargo, Vincent, Taggart, and Jo. Suffering from the effects of a paranoia-inducing weapon being tested at Global Dynamics, they believe that he is the host for an alien bent on world domination. In some ways, they are not entirely wrong.
