Agent Fox William Mulder
Height: 6 Feet
Date of Birth:
13 October 1961
After studying at
Oxford Agent Mulder entered the Quantico Academy, to
train for an FBI-agent. He there earned the nickname
spooky, because of his theories, which often had
something to do with the paranormal. After
graduating, Agent Mulder was assigned to the FBI
violent crimes section, where he worked for three
years. In 1991 he was assigned to the FBI X-Files
section, dealing with unsolved and unexplained case
files in the history of the FBI. A partner, Dana
assigned to him, to help him, and to monitor his
work, and report to her C.E.O., A.D. Skinner.
Agent Mulder's sister
disappeared when he was 12 years old, and she was
nine. Throughout his life Agent Mulder has believed
that his sister was abducted by Aliens, something
which has much influenced his work.
Agent Dana Katherine Scully
Height: 5 feet 3
Date of Birth:
23 February 1964
Special Agent Dana
Scully joined the FBI directly from medical school as
a teacher at the Quantico FBI Academy. In 1992 she
was assigned to the X-Files section by Section Chief
Scott Blevins, to work with S.A. Mulder. She has always relied on
science, being unable to believe in Agent Mulders'
theories on what might be behind some X-Files
Agent Scully was
abducted by fugitive Duane Barry in October 1994.
After the arrest of Duane Barry, she was however
still missing for over three weeks, mysteriously
showing up in deep coma at the I.C.U. of North
Georgetown University Hospital. After regaining
consciousness, Agent Scully claims she has no
memories whatsoever of the event.
Director Walter S. Skinner
A.D. Skinner is the
superior officer of agents Mulder and Scully as well
as FBI bureau chief. He is often in conflict with
Agent Mulder, as Mulder has a tendency not to do
everything by the book. A.D. Skinner often gets
visits from the mysterious Cancer Man, whose
relationship with Skinner isn't quite clear
In 1996, Skinner was
gunned down in a café by a Mexican that was
identified as Luis Cardinal, and who was later
apprehended by agent Scully, and later killed himself
in his prison cell. (Although agent Mulder believes
that the dark group that Cancer Man belongs to had
something to do with his death - "They made it
look as if he killed himself, Scully").
well from the incident. It is believed that
Skinner's shooting was ordered by someone in the
Intelligence Community as a warning to Skinner not to
investigate further into Agent Scully's sisters
It is believed that
the man known as Alex Krycek, or Ratboy to some, has
(or at least had) close involvements with the
mysterious intelligence group to which Cancer
He, together with
Luis Cardinal killed Agent Scully's sister, Melissa.
He was also involved in the stealing of a digital
tape containing the record of the CIA's involvement
in the capturing of UFOs. He together with Cardinal
stole the DAT from A.D. Skinner, beating him up while
In 1996, Mulder found
Krycek in Hong Kong, trying to sell the secrets of
the digital tape. After capturing and pulling a gun
on Krycek at the Hong Kong airport Agent Mulder and
Krycek flew to Washington D.C., where Krycek
disappeared after their car was driven off the road
by a black sedan.
These three men have
many times helped Mulder with the technical stuff
they are so good at. Frohike, Langley and Bayers are
somewhat of computer nerds - but not any computer
nerds - they're the best.
They have gotten
their nickname from the fact that they publish a
newsletter on government conspiracies.
Amongst other things
they helped Mulder trace the route of the ship Piper
Maru in the episode named 'Piper Maru', and to
explain why seemingly normal people suddenly turned
into murderers in the episode 'Pusher'.
man is the successor of Mulder's former information
source, Deep Throat,
who died in the last episode of season one. His
motives are unknown, but he provides Mulder with
information, mainly regarding the UFO cases, but
still his place in the hierarchy of 'the big
conspiracy' is quite unknown. In the episode 'One
Breath' he killed a man point blank before the eyes
of Agent Mulder.
X was also the one
who carried Mulder out of the train car just before
the bomb that was hidden in it exploded, in the
Deep Throat was the one who
provided Mulder with information during season one.
He tragically died after agent Mulder was kidnapped,
however. He insisted he should deliver the 'ransom'
the kidnappers (read dark government group...)
demanded, namely an alien fetus.
Deep Throat is the
essence of the alien conspiracy running through The
X-Files - the ultimate good guy.
Remember his final
words, when dying in the arms of Agent Scully:
Show me what it looked like
Although referred to as Cancer Man by
x-philes, Carter and the gang have named him the
Cigarette Smoking man. (Mulder called him Cancer Man
once when referring to him). I however prefer to call
him Cancer Man.
Throat represents the good guys, Cancer Man truly
represents the dark forces obstructing agent Mulder's
work. He frequently visits A.D. Skinner's office,
giving him 'advise' when Mulder and Scully start
digging too close to the truth.

equally mysterious men in a Washington apartment.
This group seem to be the core of the men who have
knowledge of the government's involvement with

'Talitha Cumi' were he reminisces to Mrs. Mulder
about "so many good times at the Mulders'
summer place" when Fox and Samantha were "so
young and energetic". He also said "I
was a better water skier than Bill [Mulder], but
then, that could be said about so many things",
suggesting he and Mrs. Scully were lovers.
