Character Profiles / Season One.
Tom Stone is a patriotic former Marine Special Operator. He perceives vast conspiracies within the military and his government while his by-the-book former Commander Jake Hamilton has yet to wake up to the depth of military industrial complex corruption. Hamilton, the main series character, has his eyes opened when he's called to confront Stone.

His mission is to return the country to its former stature as a bastion of freedom and a beacon of hope for the world. Hal Nelson is Hamilton's senior commander at Marine Special Forces Command at Camp Lejeune. Although Hamilton perceives him as a person of incorruptible integrity behind the scenes, he actively enriches himself at the expense of his own soldiers' blood and treasure. Larsen is the compromised CIA undercover agent at Lejeune, who recruits Tom Stone as his expendable pawn to carry out his nefarious directives.
