Forres was a Federation section leader who worked in security at Residence-1 under Major Grenlee. He had a somewhat informal manner which grated on Grenlee somewhat, but in contrast was also more of a stickler for rules. He claimed that "Some days are better than others" was a saying where he came from and that his mother cried when he left because he owed her money. He disagreed with the decision to allow Chesku and his wife Sula (in reality Anna Grant) to leave the surveillance area.

When part of the surveillance grid went down, Forres wanted to seal the perimeter but believed it be a mechanical fault so let Grenlee send troopers to investigate instead. He panicked when they lost touch with the squad but was fooled by Balon posing as the squad commander. As a result of the lack of surveillance, Anna was able to lead a group of rebels disguised as Chesku and the troopers (who had been killed and their clothes taken) through the perimeter prior to the rest of the rebels attacking. Forres was killed by the rebels when they raked the surveillance room with gunfire. (C: Rumours of Death)
