Kennedy Schulzinger, also known as Ken, is an undercover officer from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He hails from Redview County.
Born on May 19, 1994, he belonged to a middle-class family of three as the only child of the Schulzinger family. His parents own a successful gift shop along Gullwing Drive north of Redwood County.
At the age of 16, he owned his first car, a used Honda Civic Si. At one point, he was challenged by a group of street racers. Forced to accept, he gave a shot at this and, despite a police chase when all but him were arrested, managed to win the race. His parents soon found out about his actions but chose not to punish him on the grounds that he was forced to do so. The police managed to track him down and gave him a fine alongside the impounding of his car. The family gift shop suffered a small-term loss as a result.
He started his police career under the supervision of the Redview County Police Department. After reviewing his history on the road and the aforementioned street race early on in his life, the officers decided to recommend him to undercover work, where he successfully caught a total of 35 racers overall. Eventually, he received an invitation to join the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Vehicle Response Team (VRT) and works under the supervision of other law enforcement agencies such as the Fairhaven City Police Department.
So far, he has known to have driven a modified Chevrolet Corvette Z06 outfitted with performance parts and some of the necessary gear needed to gather intelligence. He also owns a 2015 Ford Mustang GT, though it was not often used.
- He will appear in a future Need for Speed fanfic as one of the protagonists.
