[[folder:Paladin Nine Security]]
!!Victor Coste (Howard Siegel)
Sam's friend from his Navy SEAL days, "Vic" Coste is a valuable ally to him in the fifth game. Following his days in the Navy, he took up forming "Paladin Nine Security", a security consulting company specializing in high-tech defense solutions and kidnapping recovery work. That said, due to the small staff, he ends up doing most of the field work himself, keeping up enough to still stay useful for Sam when he is called on once more.
----
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: You play as him during a flashback in ''Conviction'' in which he rescues Sam during the First Gulf War.
** SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Since he's a soldier, not a StealthExpert, the gameplay is more akin to typical ThirdPersonShooter games than levels where people play as Sam, with unlimited reloads, no close quarters combat, and no Mark and Execute function.
* BadassInDistress: The entire game of ''Conviction'' is narrated from captivity in a Black Arrow cell. [[spoiler:The final cutscene implies that Sam broke him out.]]
%%* BadassMustache
* BashBrothers: With Sam. Much more evident in ''Blacklist'' than ''Conviction'', since they actually fight alongside eachother, and a lot of attention is paid to how much concern Sam has over his condition.
* TheBigGuy: In ''Conviction''.
* CoolOldGuy
* DemotedToExtra: He serves as a partner in the tutorial for ''Blacklist'', but is put into critical condition by a grenade by the end of it, and remains in the hospital for the game's duration until the ending.
* GunshipRescue: Pulls this off in the latter part of ''Conviction''.
* InSeriesNickname: "Vic".
* {{Narrator}}: For ''Conviction''.
* RememberTheNewGuy: He's first mentioned in ''Conviction'' as Sam's old war buddy, but had no prior mentions. A JustifiedTrope in that there was [[MissionControl no reason for Sam to contact him]] prior to ''Conviction''.

[[folder: John Brown's Army]]
!!Emile Dufraisne

The leader of John Brown's Army. Emile was a wealthy Mississippi citizen who sold all of his possessions in order to fund his revolutionary army. He believes America has become corrupt and has to be taken down and rebuilt.
----

* BadBoss: He executes [[spoiler:Enrica]] if the bomb fails to go off on the cruise ship, suspecting [[spoiler:she]] was a mole who sabotaged the device, even though he had no evidence.
* BaldOfEvil: Very much an example of such.
* BigBad: Of ''Double Agent.''
* EqualOpportunityEvil: Played with. Despite being a militia leader, he's got a black female liberal as his second-in-command. Likewise, he's taken his organization's name from a famous abolitionist.
* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: He really likes pulling this, even on operatives who have already proven their loyalty.
* ProperlyParanoid: He's got no less than two [[DeepCoverAgent deep cover agents]] in his organization. Sadly, his tests don't prove anything since he's rather forgiving of mistakes comparatively speaking.
* RightWingMilitiaFanatic: Is the leader of one of these, though John Brown's Army is much more effective than most examples thereof.
* TakingYouWithMe: When the Feds storm his secret HQ, he tries to use his nuclear bomb to blow up New York City rather than be taken alive.

!!Carson Moss

----
* DumbMuscle
* TheDragon: To Dufraisne.
** DragonTheirFeet: [[spoiler:It's possible to play ''Double Agent'' and not even kill him if a certain level isn't unlocked.]]
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: His profile says he's racist, [[InformedFlaw though he never expresses it in game]].

!!Jamie Washington

A ruthless young member of John Brown's Army.
----

* AffablyEvil: He's very nice to the people he considers his friends, but extremely cruel to the ones he does not.
* TheBrute: He's prone to KickTheDog moments when Sam won't do it.
* EvilCripple: Downplayed. He has a pacemaker in his chest to keep his heart regular, but he's otherwise capable and healthy. You can kill him with your pistol's EMP attachment in version 2 of the game, however.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Has complete and utter faith in Sam Fisher's loyalty to the JBA.

!!Enrica Villablanca (Rachel Reenstra)

A former student activist who has found herself working for John Brown's Army.
----

* AffablyEvil: Despite being blackmailed into becoming a member of the JBA, she's still a member and assists in their terrorist activities.
* TheDarkChick: Albeit, an AffablyEvil one.
* DefectingForLove: In the Xbox/PS2/Wii version of ''Double Agent'', Sam develops a genuine romantic attachment to Enrica, and is very pissed when [[spoiler:she's killed by Third Echelon]]. In the Xbox 360/PC version, though, Sam's just playing her for info, and is perfectly happy to kill her in cold blood in order to achieve OneHundredPercentCompletion. She does help Sam by unlocking a coded door for him if he lets her live instead, but he can kill her before she walks away after the door is opened, and no option to knock her unconscious is available.
* TheMedic: Serves in this role.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Has a Ph.D. and is working for terrorists.
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Unlike the other members of the [=JBA=], who are all hardcore anti-government militants, Enrica is essentially an Ivy League wannabe who only sticks around because Emile has enough dirt on her to bury her.
* OptionalSexualEncounter: It's possible, though not required, for Sam and Enrica to hook up in ''Double Agent''.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Sam.
* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler:Emile executes her when the bomb on the cruise ship fails to go off due to Sam's sabotage.]]

!!Stanley Dayton

* NonActionGuy
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Black Arrow]]
!!Lucius Galliard (Tyrone Benskin)
The CEO of Black Arrow and several other companies. Lucius is a member of Megiddo, a NebulousEvilOrganization with major influence that opposes President Patricia Caldwell.
----
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* HeKnowsTooMuch: [[spoiler:Mere moments after Sam captures him, a sniper kills Galliard to prevent him from talking about Megiddo, with Sam getting barely any information about the group. The assassin is killed by a car bomb a few minutes later.]]
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:He gives orders to both Reed and V.P. Samson on behalf of Megiddo.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: When he is mentioned on a news program Sam can overhear, he is described as a well-known philanthropist.

!!Colonel Jeremy Prentiss (Trevor Hayes)
A colonel who works for Black Arrow, Prentiss serves as one of Tom Reed's allies during the fifth game,
----
* TheBrute: Of the fifth game.
* ColonelBadass: Subverted, in that the best effort he makes against [[StealthExpert Sam Fisher]] is in a gunship with machine guns and missiles, and he still doesn't manage to hit him.
* HellishCopter: [[spoiler:Dies when his helicopter is hit by missiles fired from Vic Coste's own gunship.]]
* SinisterShades
* WouldHitAGirl: And would take one hostage to try to protect himself from Fisher.

!!Major Shawn Robertson (Danny Blanco-Hall)
A major working for Black Arrow, he serves as one of Tom Reed's allies in the fifth game.
----
* BeardOfEvil
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Robertson is the first of ''Conviction'''s villians to die.
* TheBrute
* ExplosiveInstrumentation: When Sam sets off an {{EMP}} to stop Robertson from tracking down Grim, the console he is using electrocutes him and then explodes, setting his body on fire in his chair.
** ManOnFire
* MajorlyAwesome: Subverted. He doesn't really do much at all, despite his rank.
* ScaryBlackMan
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He and his men execute the scientists at White Box once they finished work on the EMP devices.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Engineers]]
!! Majid Sadiq (Carlo Rota)
The leader of the Engineers and the mastermind behind the "Blacklist" plot against the United States.
----
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Puts up a pretty good fight against Sam in the finale. He's basically the only guy besides [[spoiler: Douglas Shetland]] who could actually fight Sam hand-to-hand on an even playing field.
* BaldOfEvil
* BigBad: Of ''Blacklist''.
* BreakThemByTalking: Does this successfully with a captured US soldier in Iraq before executing him. Tries this with Sam in London but Briggs pulls a BigDamnHero moment.
* CharacterTic: Plays with Sam's karambit whenever he gets hold of it in non-combat situations.
* ColdBloodedTorture: [[spoiler:Has this performed on the US Secretary of Defense in order to get his information codes.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Does this to Briggs when attempting to escape the bunker and almost does this with Sam in their final confrontation.
* DefiantToTheEnd: Attempts to pull this off with Sam at the end of their fight in Colorado. He fails, as Sam spares him.
* EvilBrit: Ex-MI6.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Drops his facade when he is called out on his actions.
* FinalBoss: Has a true BossBattle in his finale.
* GeniusBruiser: Conducts and plans a series of meticulous and incredibly destructive terrorist attacks while staying one step ahead of the protagonists, is a former MI6 agent who knows most of the tactics Fourth Echelon will deploy against him and is one of the few antagonists of the franchise to come closest to killing Sam Fisher in a fair fight.
* HannibalLecture: Pulls off a creepy one on a helpless hostage in Iraq, reducing him to a sobbing wreck.
* RogueAgent: Ex-{{MI6}} agent.
* TheUnreveal: [[spoiler:His actual plan is never really elaborated on, aside from that he wants to get some kind of information from the Secretary of Defense's accounts, which he deems to be the most dangerous weapon available to the modern world. He knows not to give a MotiveRant to his enemies.]]
** [[spoiler: WordOfGod is that, in addition to nuclear access codes, he was also seeking all of the United States' massive troves of information to expose their secrets to the world and destroy all of their international relationships.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: Has a brief but spectacular one [[spoiler:when Briggs, [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt against all his expectations]], [[DidntSeeThatComing actually kills the Secretary of Defense]]]] complete with a BigNo and a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.

* RogueAgent: Ex-{{MI6}} agent.
* TheUnreveal: [[spoiler:His actual plan is never really elaborated on, aside from that he wants to get some kind of information from the Secretary of Defense's accounts, which he deems to be the most dangerous weapon available to the modern world.
