Disco Elysium Wiki

Dick Mullen was a character in a series of crime fiction novels.


An upstanding Vespertine detective who would never lose his badge, Mullen solves cases including robberies, murders, and even sexual crimes in his books. Plaisance describes them as being able to "teach a person how to be a proper detective." In reality, the books greatly exaggerate how exciting police work really is. Mullen, in several books, fakes his own death to solve a case. His most extreme act, however, is when, in order to catch a murderer, Dick Mullen must *become* the murderer.

Behind the scenes[]

Mullen's name is likely a reference to Nick Mullen, a New York-based comedian and co-host of the podcast Cum Town. Mullen has appeared on Chapo Trap House, another podcast that has several of its hosts voice characters in Disco Elysium. Additionally, Adam Friedland, another host of Cum Town, is the ex-fiancé of Dasha Nekrasova, who voiced Klaasje.
