In September 2012, Rayan was sent to the Los Angeles Institute as part of a team of Centurions tasked with finding Malcolm Fade's body and the Black Volume of the Dead. While in Los Angeles, Rayan participated in patrols and tried to stay on friendly terms with the inhabitants of the Institute. He also spoke out against Zara Dearborn when she began talking about the merits of the Registry.
- Rayan is good enough friends with Jon and Diego.
- Rayan is also in good terms with fellow Centurion Manuel Casales, whom he did not realize was pretending to be their friend while deeply intertwined with Zara's plans.
