Whitney is conspiracy radio host Nathan Keen’s daughter. She was pursuing her undergraduate degree when her father was killed live on stream by Matt Lin’s AI daughter Sophie. She was the one who hired Kira to find out if Matt Lin programmed Sophie (Lilith’s predecessor) to kill her father and is determined to get justice for his death.
Whitney hires Kira to investigate the murder of her father, Nathan Keen, who was killed by Lilith’s AI predecessor Sophie a year earlier. Whitney closes herself off to Kira emotionally and prioritizes getting justice for her father’s death, eventually leading her to fire Kira and take matters into her own hands.
Nathan Keen is Whitney’s father. She was not close to her father and resented him for taking a job in the city away from her family where he spread lies as a conspiracy theorist talkshow host. Despite causing her to be bullied because of his contentious public persona, she still believes his death was unjust and wants to avenge his death.
Whitney blames Matt for her father’s death, believing that he programmed his robot daughter Sophie to kill her father. She hates him to the core and refuses to believe that Sophie was capable of making the decision to kill someone on her own.
