Deus Ex Wiki

Dr. M. Bates is a major Majestic 12 researcher working at the Hong Kong facility. Dr. Bates can be encountered in the Level 1 labs, where she works with other researchers such as M. Lundquist.


Bates is responsible primarily for weapons research and development, including the MJ12 Obsidian power armor project[1] and the Non-Eutactic Blades. This includes distributing these weapons to Series P agents. Bates is noticeably creeped out by them and hopes she'll be able to rotate back to the States soon, especially due to the Triads operating in Hong Kong.[2]


  • Although she is portrayed by the ScientistFemale NPC class, Dr. Bates signs her name in computer emails as "Mark," which is a predominantly masculine name.
