IHMN: More US Secret Service Agents


The United States Secret Service (USSS) is the only U.S. domestic intelligence and counterintelligence agency and recruits the best of the best and is totally invested in using the latest technology to protect the interests and assets of the United States. Since the USSS only wants the "best of the best with honors sir!", these additional agents cut against the grain of your typical Special Agent (SA).

 "I don't mind a reasonable amount of trouble."

From the file of Special Agent XWhen a man's partner is killed, he's supposed to do something about it. It doesn't make any difference what you thought of him. He was your partner and you're supposed to do something about it. And it happens we're in the world saving business. Well, when one of your organization gets killed, it's-it's bad business to let the killer get away with it, bad all around, bad for every agent everywhere.

SA X (real name redacted for reasons unknown, probably had something to do with a dame) has a detached demeanor, keen eye for detail, and unflinching determination to achieve his own justice. Originally a private detective, he did not want to be an erudite solver of riddles in the manner of Sherlock Holmes. After his partner was killed, he prefers to work alone but understands, though often ignores, the chain of command. He is a hard and shifty fellow, a cynical tough individual able to take care of himself in any situation, able to get the best of anybody he comes in contact with, whether criminal, innocent bystander or fellow special agents. SA X will sacrifice others for the greater good without a second thought. Needless to say, he is not popular with his fellow agents.

"Inactive" Special Agent Nicholas "Nick" Charles: "The important thing is the rhythm. Always have rhythm in your shaking. Now a Manhattan you shake to foxtrot time, a Bronx to two-step time, but a dry martini you always shake to waltz time.

Nick Charles, the son son of a Greek immigrant gave up his career as a private detective when he married his clever young wife Nora. He was recruited personally by Special Agent James Dempsey mostly against his will, into investigating a murder which turned out to be REDACTED. Since then, he likes to think of himself as an "inactive" Special Agent and prefers to share with his wife Nora a great deal of banter and witty dialogue, along with copious amounts of alcohol. For unknown reasons, he is one of the few agents able to work effectively with Special Agent X (though many may think it is due to an alcohol induced state).
