Actor David Duchovny brings FBI agent Fox Mulder to life. Known to his companions as "Spooky" (Sinister), Mulder is a faithful believer of paranormal phenomena. In addition to being sure that the United States Government handles the threads of a conspiracy designed to hide or deny the truth of the existence of extraterrestrial life.


All this leads him to work on the "X Files", a series of special cases with great halo of mystery and possibly supernatural facts. Mulder's goal to work on such cases is to discover the truth that the government seems to hide. Mulder's interest in the paranormal is related to a fact that marked his life since childhood, the abduction in front of his sister Samantha's eyes. A fact that took place during a night in which both were alone at home and that would lead him to look for her.

By joining the FBI, Mulder becomes a legend, being a leading agent and researcher. However, his taste for paranormal cases makes him earn certain teasing. But this does not stop Mulder in his eagerness to find the truth, because he simply thinks it is a matter of time and belief. A vision that many times he applies with his partner Dana Scully.

Mulder: Do you believe in the existence of aliens?

Scully: I would have to logically say no. Given the enormous distances that would have to be traversed in space, the necessary energy would be excessive for the capacity of a spacecraft

Mulder: Conventional theories …

Scully: The answers are there, you just have to know how to look for them.

Mulder: That's where FBI's ‘I’ comes from.

Mulder: I will not give up. Not while the truth is out there.


Dana Scully is an FBI agent graduated in Physical Sciences and Medicine. She was assigned as a partner of Fox Mulder, in order to write reports detailing the legitimacy of the investigations carried out by her partner of the so-called “X Files”. With this they sought to make Scully discredit Mulder's work and could put him aside.

However, they get the opposite effect. As he delves into the cases, his tolerance for accepting explanations beyond science grows in Scully, while increasing confidence in his tenacious companion. For Mulder, who at first believed her a spy, in a short time she checks the integrity of her new partner and decides to trust her, to the point of being Scully the only person who achieves this from him.

Scully: I'm scared. I am afraid to believe.

Scully: Don't look for something you don't want to find.
