The Young Man on Recognizer was a minor character in TRON: Legacy, portrayed by Darren Dolynski. He stood next to Sam Flynn on the recognizer which brought them to the Arena, and was one of Sam's four teammates in Clu's light cycle tournament.

Biography[edit | edit source]

This program was one of seven prisoners being transported to the Game Arena in a recognizer when the craft descended to the street to pick up an eighth captive, Sam Flynn. Once on board, Sam asked the program whether he had ever heard of Kevin Flynn. The program merely replied, "Keep quiet if you want to live." Once the craft had reached its destination, several of the detainees were assigned to be rectified, while this program, along with Sam and at least one other program, were sentenced to compete in the Games.

He was reunited with Sam once more on the Light Cycle Grid, in a team of five riders pitted against an opposing team of Clu and four of his sentries. Initially, the captive team suffered casualties at the hands of Clu's superior team, but the young program agreed to work with Sam to even the odds when it became apparent they were losing. He succeeded in ambushing one sentry whom Sam had distracted, then assisted in hemming in another sentry between his and Sam's light ribbons, until the sentry lost control and derezzed along with his light cycle. Unfortunately, this action caused the sentry's light cycle to clip his own, throwing it out of control and separating it from its rider. The program stood, amazed that he had survived the collision, and was pleased to see Sam pausing to retrieve his lost baton. However, as he waited with his outstretched hand to receive the baton, he was derezzed when Clu's light cycle landed directly on top of him.

Sam later kept his Baton.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The young program wore his hair in a spiked-up reverse mohawk style, and had blue circuits, dark markings under his eyes, and a white vertical line bisecting his lower lip. When first seen on the recognizer, he wore an outfit which included a short high-collared jacket, fingerless gloves, and mismatched boots. On the Light Cycle Grid, he wore the same pattern of standard conscript armor which had been issued to Sam Flynn.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • He was one of two programs on the team to have blue circuits; the other two programs had green circuits, while Sam, the user, had white.
