CHRIS LARABEE ~ Group Supervisor
VIN TANNER ~ Special Agent
Specialty: Sniper, Limited Undercover
|Residence: 3 bedroom (one is a guest room, one is a den),
2 bath Ranch-style rambler on acreage with horses, approximately 40 minutes
out of Denver.
||Residence: Purgatorio; low-income section of Denver. One
bedroom apartment on the fourth floor of a six floor walk-up.
Dodge Ram 2500, with Cummins 24-valve Turbo Diesel engine (4-door, but not
blue, beat up, paint peelin', late-80's Jeep.
A 1958 FL Duo-Glide; 4 spd, 74 cu. in. Panhead, Fatbob tank.
The HK USP45 and a Colt 1911. Chris shot a .45 in the past, I see no reason
for him to change now
lot of stories have him armed with a SIG, and I can see that--a SIG 229,
perhaps. While the Vinchester cannot make the transition to modern times,
I'd like to see Vin own and operate a Desert Eagle in .41 Magnum. It's not
a sawed-off rifle, but it's close enough for government work.
|History: Ex-Navy Lt. (10 yr stint, joined at 18) He has a 4-year degree
in Criminal Justice and served 6 years with the Denver Police Department
in Homicide. He was partners with Buck Wilmington and quit after his wife,
Sarah and son, Adam were killed in 1993 by a car bomb meant for Chris when
he and Buck were extraditing a prisoner from Mexico. He took a position with
the ATF 6 months after his resignation from the PD and served two years as
a federal agent when he was asked to head up a special operations team.
||History: An ex-Army Ranger with an Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice
which he acquired during his stint in the military. After he was discharged,
he worked briefly as a private bounty hunter before getting on as a U.S.Marshal.
He served with this federal division until he was also recruited by Chris
and transferred to the ATF. Weapons specialist and sniper.Orphaned when he
was five, he has no other known living relatives. He was born in Texas, spent
much of his youth in and out of foster homes and ran away to Denver when
he was in his early teens, living on the streets in Purgatorio, the portion
of Denver he still resides in today.
|Quirks: Is an excellent wood-worker. Owns every Johnny Cash album ever

||Residence: Two bedroom, two bath, with den, two-story 1930's
home in one of the Denver suburbs.
black Jaguar XJS Coupe
brown and beige Ford Explorer
Walther P99 seems like a good choice for the flashy undercover agent. Add
a SIG P2340 and Ezra would be dressed for success.The Taurus Police Model
85 is a five-shot .38 that weighs only 13 ounces for an ankle gun.
his practical nature, I'd think Nathan would go for something reliable but
not overly flashy--maybe a Beretta 92F. For the gun behind holster No. 2,
a Ruger P89. Wondernines for the doc and a Ka-Bar of course.
|History: Has a 4-year degree in Psychology and an MBA.
After graduating, he pursued Law Enforcement, working with the Vice Squad
of the Atlanta PD before getting on with the FBI. Fueled by a 'wild card'
reputation and rumors of corruption, his career was in jeopardy. He was place
on 'permanent loan' to the ATF when recruited by Chris. His mother, Maude
(Vanderbilt Standish Windsor Simpson Talesian Rosenbaum) Von Hauken, is still
living and has had 6 husbands, none Ezra's father. Standish has no other
known living relatives.
|History: An ex-Army medic with a 4-year degree in biology and a minor
in chemistry. He grew up in the southern U.S. and moved to Kansas to go to
college. After graduating, he joined the police department in Kansas City
where he worked with the Bomb Squad, specializing in Incendiary Forensics
before being recruited by Larabee. He recommended Josiah to Chris for the
team. Jackson's father died of tuberculosis two years after Nathan joined
the team and he has no other known living relatives. Certified at the Federal
school for Tactical Medics (trains law enforcent personnel to act as medical
aid and back-up tactical for SWAT teams and other special units in which
medical service is needed but the situations are too risky for civilian medical
|Quirks: His tardiness to work is overshadowed only by the extravagant
excuses he gives. Loves antiques and is a clothes horse. (Shys away from
American labels, preferring such desginers as Dolce and Gabbana, Brioni,
Zegna, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Helmut Lang...well, you get the idea. ;-)
||Quirks: Despite the fact he has taken up position as watchdog for the
team's health, Nate is a notorious lover of good cigars and steaks, cooked
BUCK WILMINGTON ~ Special Agent
Specialty: Limited undercover, Explosives
JD DUNNE ~ Special Agent
Specialty: Surveillance, Comm, limited undercover
|Residence: A two-bedroom loft condo which he shares with
JD. (yes, we stole the layout from 'The Sentinel', but switched out the staircase
for a spiral one and Buck's top floor room has full walls and a door.) Nicknamed
the CDC, (The Center for Disease Control; a US Federal organization).
||Shares a loft in Denver with Buck.
swapped out Buck's old beat up Chevy truck for a red 1957 GMC Pickup.(souped
up and chromed up, of course.)
Buck, for reasons I can't explain, screams Glock. That being the case, Buck
might carry a Glock 22, which is a .40 S&W model that the FBI has approved
for use. Coupled with a S&W SW99, he'd have a nice pair of guns.
The Colt Defender is a scaled down version of the 1911, and a nice one at
that J.D. would have a matched set in .40 S&W, with ivory micarta grips.
|History: Has a 4-year degree in History with a minor in music appreciation.
After college he joined the Denver Police Department and after 2 years was
promoted to Homicide. He and Chris Larabee had been friends since high school
and were reacquainted when they were assigned as partners in Homicide. After
Larabee left, Buck stayed with the PD until he was the first recruit by Chris
for the ATF team. His mother, an exotic dancer, did her best as a single
mom to raise her son with high ethics and an equally high regard toward women.
He has no other known living relatives.
||History: A Boston native, he excelled through high school and college
with a degree in Computer Science. Originally a beat cop in the Boston PD,
he was accepted into the ATF and was well aware of Chris Larabee's exceptional
reputation in the Bureau. The death of his mother due to illness sent the
young man westward in an effort to start a new life.
|Quirks: Is a card carrying Parrot-head (a.k.a. Jimmy Buffet fan). Keeps
a rubber chicken in his lower left drawer to shake at people when he's irritated
with them (thus preventing him from saying something that will get him in
||Quirks: Member of Mensa and probably would have become a hacker if he
hadn't turned to law enforcement. Plays a mean game of street hockey.
JOSIAH SANCHEZ ~ Special Agent
Specialty: Criminal profiling, Surveillance
|Residence: Very large Victorian-era house that he is restoring.
80's grayish-black Chevy Suburban
Browning Hi Power comes to mind, but in .40 S&W rather than the more
traditional 9mm. Keeping with his age and size, if Josiah were to own and
operate a S&W Model 657 (.41 Magnum), it would not come as a terrible
surprise. At least not to his friends.
|History: Has a 4-year degree in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy
which he acquired after leaving the service. He is a grad school drop out.
He served 5 years in the Army with two tours toward the end of Vietnam conflict.
Once he graduated college, he was hired as a Kansas City police officer with
Special Crimes as a profiler.He worked there until recruited by Larabee for
the team. His father was a missionary, which allowed Sanchez to travel
extensively as a child. His dad (with whom Josiah had unresolved issues)
died after Sanchez came back from Vietnam. Only known living relative is
a younger sister, Hannah.
|Quirks: Makes a wicked pot of chili, is the only one who can
handle Vin's coffee and though few know it, his life dream is to meet the
|Orin, ex-Federal judge. An old friend with the Attorney General
who established the Mobile Enforcement Teams (and who thought 'the Judge'
would be perfect for the position), Orin accepted the title of Assistant
Director at the ATF Denver field office.
|Mary is an investigative reporter for "The Denver Clarion". Her
husband, also a reporter, was murdered while on a story involving corporate
land fraud, leaving Mary to raise their son Billy on her own with help from
her in-laws, the Travis's.
|Rain - Though her position as Managing Director of the Longmont
Coalition for Women in Crisis keeps her traveling many weeks out of the year,
she and Nathan share a solid, steady relationship and Nate bought his house
with hopes that the two of them will one day marry.
|Inez manages "J. Watson's" (the bar referred to by the boys as
'the saloon'.) Became friends with the guys after a possessive ex-boyfriend
tracked her down and Buck helped her out of said jam.
|Nettie - A retired high school teacher. The first to recognize
Vin's dyslexia and help him with it, she became a respected figure in his
life. He insisted on returning the favors by doing work and odd jobs around
the small farm she lives on outside of Denver.
|Casey - A veterinary assistant, she and JD are dating casually.
They met through Vin because of his relationship with Nettie.
|Cuervo (OC - Original Cat) - A well-fed little housecat who cruises
the city blocks by day and sleeps curled next to the warm body of a college
student named John at night. He is well known throughout the Federal building
garage as a scammer of food and head scratchies.
