Peter Kilmer, commonly known as Petey, was a Macrodata Refiner at Lumon Industries. Prior to his sudden departure, he served as department chief and was know around the office to be the tone-setter. Petey and Mark developed a close friendship over time, with Mark claiming he was his best friend.
Petey was the first person to undergo Reintegration, an experimental procedure where the Severance chip no longer separates one’s memories. A successful Reintegration enables the individual to remember and have access to both their Innie and Outie experiences. Going to work with his memories intact allowed Petey to make a map of the Severed Floor on the back of one of the group photos and leave it for Mark to later discover.
Petey later collapsed at a convenience store and died soon after, possibly from Reintegration sickness. Petey was 52 years old when he died, according to the Kier Chronicle article. He is survived by a daughter, June.
(Swing style tempo)
Psss go the pistons
Ding goes the bell
Down goes the elevator
All seems well
But the car will never reach its destination true
’Cause that’s when Mark S starts to say Achoo!
Achoo, Achoo — Elevator allergy
It’s true, it’s true — No lamer malady
The sneezin’ knocks the elevator off its track
And now the Outie world won’t take Mark back!
