Vance Eckland is a biologist and member of Project Splinter.
Eckland sprang into existence when Cole and Railly permanently altered the timeline in 2016 by destroying Jennifer's supply of the plague virus. Due to this change in the timeline, he was in a romantic relationship with Jones. However, she had no memory of him, due to her having taken a drug that caused time to flow about her without affecting her. He moved out of their shared quarters, but said he was looking forward to romancing her again.
