D.L. Townes is a journalist, photographer, and avid chess player. He works for Chess Review as photojournalist and for the Lexington Herald-Leader as an associate editor; occupations which have allowed him to follow Harmon's journey across the United States and to Moscow, Russia. A former love interest, Townes is likely Harmon's closest friend and on par to family.
