Captain Canuck a.k.a. Tom Evans:
Costumed hero with strength and speed slightly above
normal thanks to being bathed in an alien ray beam while a Scoutmaster
for some Boy Scouts.
career police officer, first with the RCMP, then CISO, before becoming
CISO's show-piece to the world as Captain Canuck. He became disenchanted
with CISO bureaucracy and resigned to go freelance, on call to whoever
needed him (though he still usually worked for CISO).
He was raised in Winnipeg and his parents are (apparently)
still living, though never seen; he has a brother named Mike. He is trilingual
(at least) -- French, English and at least some German -- and has Native
Indian blood, but how much is not clear (one of his parents? an ancestor?).
Early issues portrayed him as a deeply religious man, but later issues
dropped that. Midway through the series his costume was modified and a
bulletproof plate was added under his cowl.
Head of CISO.
Early issues spelled his name "Sun" and depicted him as
maybe in his '40s -- a bit young for, essentially, Canada's spymaster.
Later stories had him craggy-faced and seeming much older.
British Lord and physicist who formed a private, anti-terrorist organization
called Earth Patrol after his wife's murder (sounds like a forerunner to
the TV series Counterstrike,
doesn't it?). He has an adult daughter (also like in the later Counterstrike).
An American Indian and electronics expert, generally
known by just plain Stardance, he is Lord West's right hand man at Earth
& Saskia Evans:
C.C.'s brother, Mike, was also a CISO agent. He was crippled
in the line of duty, but miraculously recovered enough to the point where
he could walk with a cane, a recovery he credited to his nurse -- and subsequently
his wife -- Saskia.
Commander Sheila Wallace:
A high-ranking officer/astronaut in Canada's space program.
She made two appearances in the series.
The Canadian Intelligence Security Organization: a (fictional)
Canadian anti-crime, counter-espionage organization. This was created long
before the real life (and much less spectacular) CSIS.
A privately operated, international anti-terrorist organization,
founded by Lord West.
