Emile is the main protagonist of the novel and series Infused. He is the first point of view the reader experiences during the book. He is a 6'2 Caucasian man, taken in to X-31 Test Facility, located in now-destroyed Manhattan, at age 26, four days before his 27th birthday. Reasons for this unknown, he one day miraculously escapes the facility in hopes of a welcoming outside, but what he finds terrifies him.
Emile has what is most likely the most amazing of all powers in Infused. He has the speed of a cheetah, claws like the head of a swordfish, and one ability with unknown origin; this power is what he calls Copycat. When he drinks the blood of his enemies (or friends), he absorbs the powers and memories of his enemies (or friends!) temporarily. This ability seems to be less of a chemical power, but more of a mystical blessing.
His "best friend" is another victim of sadistic "testing" by their unknown antagonist. This man is Morhdekai, whom he escapes X-31 Test Facility with. At one point in the story, they meet a rather odd soldier enlisted in the IUSOM (Inner-United-States Operative Military. More on that later.)named Alice, whom Emile uses as but a pawn in his game... at least for a time.
In Infused, Emile has conflicting emotions and goals about the Infection and his own endeavors. As he suffers, others around him slowly begin to die, until he figures out that's there's someone, or something, physical or otherworldly, trying to single him out. A major struggle of his is to figure out if he should help the ones around him or himself, and if one or the other will somehow lead to the curing of the Virus.
As you can see, there's not much to be said about him; at least, not much to say without spoiling the entire outcome of what is to happen. Just let it be known that Emile plays a major rule in the game of Spencer, one soldier of the Trenestrian race who seems to appear periodically in places he shouldn't be.
