1/28/19 same day Query and reject, but nice note
Thank you for reaching out and sharing your work. Unfortunately I don't believe this is an appropriate fit for my list here at Triada US. I hope you'll continue querying the project and I wish you much success with your publishing career.

I honestly just queried him because I hadn't gotten responses from any other agents recently and I knew he'd at least send a fast rejection.
I think he mostly goes off referrals.

An hour after that, Brent emailed me back to say he enjoyed what he'd read but thought it might be a stronger match for a different agent at his firm. He gave me details about who to reach out to and wished me well. I'm disappointed it didn't speak to him, because he sounds awesome, but the way this went down hardly even feels like a rejection. He sounds like an awesome agent for anyone thinking of going with him.
