Brody Nelson is an FBI agent who used to be a computer hacking prodigy. He is portrayed by Shad Moss.
Nelson was formerly a black hat hacker, named "Qu35t", who got into the trouble with the law. FBI was close to throwing the book at him, until the judge made him work with them. Either he works with the FBI cyber division or he goes to jail for five years. Brody is trying to work hard to earn his redemption.
As well as two living parents, Nelson has an older brother named Jordan. Jordan works as an attorney, and he refused to represent Nelson after Nelson's arrest for hacking. Jordan reconnected with Nelson after he heard Jordan, his clients, or his firms were under investigation by the FBI, hoping to get a heads-up on when a raid might happen. Nelson did not give that heads-up, partly because of the brothers' rocky relationship and partly because Nelson's work responsibilities didn't allow him time to call Jordan.
