Norris is a character in System Shock 2. He was the senior flight officer on the Von Braun. He was converted into a Hybrid by Anatoly Korenchkin.


Norris documented that someone in Command had changed the code for the Security Station. He correctly suspected that Myers was the culprit.

Over the next few days, Norris was converted into an Annelid Hybrid by Korenchkin. He experienced dreams, likely sent to him by The Many, as he slowly lost his individuality.

Shortly after allowing an Annelid to settle on him, the Annelid inspired Norris with the specifications for a weapon, revealed later to be the Annelid Launcher. It is implied that Norris is the creator of this weapon.


Norris was based on Brian Norris of St. Louis, MO, the winner of Looking Glass Studios' "Get Killed by SHODAN" contest.[1]
