Crewman Norris is a member of the Red Sprite's Strike Team and was one of the members sent out to patrol Sector Bootes after their arrival.
While out and about, Norris speaks of hearing someone laughing at him, however none of the Strike Team hears any of this. A short while later, Norris becomes even more disturbed and after an exchange with the protagonist he flees towards Mitra's castle. He is captured by the demons there and is held there until the protagonist makes his way into the palace to rescue a confined Zelenin, who was discovered there earlier.
Upon being dropped into a cell adjacent to Zelenin, the protagonist looks around to find the brutalized bodies of more Strike Team members. The protagonist then bears witness to one of the experiments being performed on Norris. The demons strip Norris of the protective gear of his Demonica which causes Norris to suffer from asphyxia or some other malady caused by the removal of his suit parts. Hoping to see if they could make him like them, the demons doused him with a product named "the madman's blood" in the hopes of keeping him alive; they also mention it came from "the blighted land".
However, judging by their reaction, their plan did not turn out as they had hoped; Norris became extremely disfigured with glowing yellow eyes and green skin and in a state of either madness or rage, attacking the protagonist.
Norris boasts attacks that target the entire party. He will rarely use his normal attack or Stun Claw and will, instead, prefer alternating between Giant Slice and Rampage. If he is low on health and if the AI detects that one of the player demons will die from it, Norris will use Last Resort to end the battle.
After his defeat, Norris drops a rare forma which the demons in Sector Bootes run off with then in an attempt to please Master Mitra. Then, the Demonica determines that the protagonist has successfully found Norris, checking off Search for Norris. If the player checks his profile in the Demon Compendium, it will show that Norris does not have a profile even though he is an enemy.
The stone dropped by Norris is later discovered while the protagonist and Zelenin are looking for a cure to the dementia overtaking the crew in Sector Delphinus and is revealed as the Madman's Stone.
