[[folder:Bryce Larkin]]
!!'''Bryce Larkin'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bryce01_2692.png]]

->''"Hello, Chuck."''

''Portrayed by MattBomer''

Chuck's old college buddy and roommate, Bryce is responsible for getting Chuck kicked out of college by framing him for cheating on a test - in truth, he was only saving Chuck from the spy life since he was already being scouted by the CIA. In the end, however, Bryce ended up sending the Intersect to Chuck and starting the whole chain of events as he only trusted Chuck with the Intersect.

----
Tropes Associated with Bryce:
* TheAce: Consistently portrayed as one of CIA's best. Even Chuck runs out of things to compliment him on.
* ArchEnemy: Casey's. The two weren't very fond of each other before, but Casey shooting him and damn near killing him really soured it. Their immediate reactions to seeing one another is to immediately pull a gun and shoot to kill.
* BigDamnHeroes: His calling card - in almost all of his appearances, he ends up saving Chuck's ass.
* BilingualBonus: Like Chuck, he's also quite fluent in [[StarTrek Klingon]], if not ''more so'' as he comments that Chuck has gotten rusty. Yes, Bryce is so much TheAce that he even makes something as hilariously nerdy as speaking Klingon come off badass and efficient.
* BrokenAce: Like Sarah, he too feels like the CIA life ruined him as a person. He outright and utterly betrayed Chuck's friendship and trust so that he doesn't get roped into it.
* GuileHero: He plays Chuck like a harp.
* HeroicSacrifice: Is killed by Miles just before he had a chance to destroy the Intersect 2.0 as a final request to Orion.
* HollywoodNerd: He protected the Intersect images with a password inspired by ''Zork'', plays EverQuest, and speaks fluent Klingon. It's their shared passion for geeky subjects that helped him and Chuck bond at Stanford.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He comes off cold and aloof at best, a total dick at worst. But underneath that he's a good person at heart.
* MomentKiller: Bryce is a walking, talking cockblock.
* MrFanservice: ''It's MattBomer''. Of ''course'' they're gonna put him in sharp outfits and take his shirt off at least once.
* RomanticFalseLead: He was Sarah's main love interest for the first two seasons, until he was [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal in the Season 2 finale.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Love and loyalty for country is fine and all, but Bryce's loyalty will always be to Sarah, Chuck and most of all Orion.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Sacrificed his friendship with Chuck to give Chuck a chance at a normal life. That said he still very much loves him like a brother and tries to look out for him.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Upon finding out that stealing the Intersect was a FULCRUM-issued mission (while he was already well into it), he makes a last-ditch effort to preserve it by sending it to Chuck before Casey can stop him.

[[folder:Orion]]
!!'''Stephen J. Bartowski / Orion'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stephen01_2206.png]]
->''"Maybe we should...wait until dark, they're...they're tracking my every move. Rat bastards..."''

''Portrayed by [[Series/QuantumLeap Scott Bakula]]''

Chuck and Ellie's estranged father, he is later revealed to have been a CIA spy, engineer, and creator of the Intersect - codenamed Orion. After discovering what the Intersect was truly capable of, he abandoned Chuck and Ellie to protect them from Fulcrum and The Ring.

[[spoiler:He was later shot and killed by Daniel Shaw.]]
-----
Tropes associated with Stephen:
* ActorAllusion: Done twice in Stephen's first appearance.
** A very familiar CatchPhrase shows up quite early in the episode.
---> '''Ellie''' (in shock at seeing her father): [[CallBack I want pancakes.]]
--->'''Stephen''' (equally shocked at her reaction): [[Series/QuantumLeap Oh boy!]]
** A meta example occurred in the network lead-in to the episode, done by Bakula in which he mentions feeling like he's "been here before." ''Series/QuantumLeap'' aired on NBC (though regrettably for the reference, never on the Mondays at 8pm Eastern Time slot Chuck occupied at the time).
* TheAtoner: He feels really bad about abandoning his kids.
** He also seems to have spent years trying to atone for [[spoiler:turning his best friend, Hartley Winterbottom into the ax crazy arms dealer Alexei Volkroff, and convincing his wife (a CIA agent) to go rogue to look after him.]]
* BadassBookworm: The man was on the run from the government and Fulcrum for ten years and regularly kicks the crap out of secret agents.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Eccentric and little air-headed, certainly, but no less capable.
* CatchPhrase: "Aces, Charles".
* DisappearedDad: A good chunk of the show's drama is Chuck and Ellie coming to terms with his leaving them when they were young, and that was after their own mom left. He needed to run to protect them from Ted Roark.
* IAlwaysWantedToSayThat: "This disk will self-destruct in 5 seconds".
* IronicNickname: Orion the Hunter yet he has spent most of his adult life being the hunted.
** Makes more sense with the backstory revealed in season four. [[spoiler:Seeing how he spent years keeping track of his best friend Hartley, (AKA Alexei Volkroff) who he accidentally turned into an ax crazy arms dealer, and his wife, who took it upon herself to look after Hartley.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Courtesy of Daniel Shaw.]]
* MinoredInAsskicking: He's a TechnoWizard first and foremost, but can most ''definitely'' hold his own in a fight. He knocked out and incapacitated Vincent and his goons without much effort, and it's implied he had to do this ''regularly'' while on the run.
* OmniscientDatabase: A beta version of the Intersect is in his head. When we see his flashes, the images move much more slowly than they do when Chuck flashes.
* ProperlyParanoid: He thinks that "the bastards are watching [his] every move". He says that in a room with [[TheMenInBlack Sarah]], and he's completely right.
** Of course he ''knew'' Sarah was CIA all along, and only allowed her to find him in the first place because he allowed her to.
* TechnoWizard: Whether it's a computer, a phone or a microwave, there's NOTHING this guy can't do with technology.

[[folder:Langston Graham]]
!!'''Langston Graham'''
->''"At least they ''(the intersect)'' weren't sent to his friend."''

''Portrayed by Creator/TonyTodd''

Graham was the Director of the CIA, and the direct supervisor of the Intersect Project, along with Sarah's superior. He recruited Sarah when she was in high school after he apprehended her father for conning a dangerous individual - claiming he [[WellIntentionedExtremist saved]] them both. It is assumed he is the only other person to have known Sarah's real full name.

He was killed at the beginning of Season 2 after the rebuilt Intersect was sabotaged by Fulcrum.
-----
Tropes associated with Graham:
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: A {{jerkass} who is always a consummate professional, he's nevertheless amused when he receives a Fedex package from Chuck....[[RefugeInAudacity with a priceless diamond used to fund terrorism just bouncing around inside]].
* DaChief: The director of the CIA.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's essentially Beckman without any of the sympathetic qualities.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Dies in an explosion in the Season 2 premiere.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: If his interactions with Sarah were any indicator, he's ''very'' font of using emotional blackmail to get people to do what he wants.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Graham was supposed to have survived longer than intended, but his death came about due to Tony Todd appearing on ''Series/TwentyFour'' that same year.
* TheStoic: Has a perpetual poker-face that he only shed twice: When Chuck mailed him a priceless diamond in a Fedex box, [[OhCrap and when he was blown up by FULCRUM]].
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Seems to have this attitude even more than Beckman. The ''only'' thing that saved Chuck's safe was Graham's own demise - and the destruction of the Intersect with him.

[[folder:Cole Barker]]
!!'''Cole Barker'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/barker01_3672.png]]
->''"Well, who'd have thought it. Cole Barker loses the girl to Chuck Bartowski."''

''Portrayed by Jonathan Cake''

Barker is a MI6 agent who infiltrated the ranks of Fulcrum as one of their top operatives - only to have his cover blown by Chuck & crew after a case of mistaken identity. Throughout his stay in Castle, some static was caused between him and Chuck, with Barker shamelessly hitting on Sarah at every chance he got. Regardless, he proved he was ultimately a good guy, and a dependable agent.
-----
Tropes associated with Barker:
* TheAce: Like Bryce, Cole is pretty much good at ''everything.''
* BigDamnHeroes: ''Twice'' he takes a bullet to save Chuck and Sarah.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Was on the receiving end of so many of these, he's developed a case of TooKinkyToTorture.
* DeadpanSnarker: Half of his dialogue is snark, ''especially'' when he's being tortured.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Comes off like a womanizing wanker, but he's a very good friend to have nonetheless.
* MadeOfIron: Torture, gunshots, drugs, ''nothing'' slows or stops this man.
* OddFriendship: After a bit of initial static with Chuck regarding Sarah, the two have surprisingly learned to get along and work together rather well. Cole himself seems particularly fond of Chuck; both times he got shot he was more worried about Chuck's well being, even though Chuck's current injuries weren't ''nearly'' as serious.
-->'''Cole''': ''"Just doing my job, General. Actually, Chuck showed great courage on this mission. He got injured in the line of duty."''
-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Casey]]''': ''"He got clipped by a window sill. It's as pathetic as it sounds."''
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: A lecherous, suave AntiHero variation.

[[folder:Frost]]
!!'''Mary Elizabeth Bartowski / Frost'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mary01_2615.png]]
->''[[ActorAllusion "Come with me if you want to live."]]''

''Portrayed by Creator/LindaHamilton''

Mary is Chuck and Ellie's mother. She disappeared when they were children, leaving Ellie to raise Chuck after Stephen left as well. She first appears in [[spoiler: "Chuck Versus the Anniversary" where she is a prisoner of Marco, an agent of Volkoff. She escapes, effortlessly killing her captors.]] Though at first its a mystery as to who she's working for and who she's loyal to, the one thing that's clear is that she doesnot want to hurt [[MoralityPet her family]].

[[spoiler: Eventually its revealed that her original mission of infiltrating Volkoff Industries is still her primary goal, due to her husband's Intersect project being responsible for turning the previously harmless Hartley Winterbottom into the AxeCrazy Alexei Volkoff.]]

----
Tropes associated with Mary:
* ActionMom: Chuck and Ellie's mother, and one of the show's premiere ass-kickers.
* BackForTheFinale: She was absent for most of the final season, only showing up in the final episode.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Betrayals and double-crosses are her forte, but she will ''always'' protect her family.
* MamaBear: Do not even THINK of hurting her family. Even Volkoff has to be on guard when she was her MamaFace on.
* ParentalAbandonment: Abandoned her children and Stephen to wedge herself deeper into Volkoff's operation. She considered it obligation and guilt out of what she and her husband did to him.
* [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou Mommy Had A Good Reason For Abandoning You]]: Protecting her kids from a monster she and Stephen created.

[[folder:Carina Miller]]
!!'''Carina Miller'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carina01_8723.png]]
->''"You idiot. The reason Sarah is being so cold is because she loves you. Now get your head out of your ass and be a spy."''

''Portrayed by Mini Anden''

One of Sarah's old spy buddies (they were part of a four-woman team called the CAT Squad), Carina is a spy who is equally comfortable with either kicking ass or seducing unwitting marks.
-----
Tropes Associated with Carina:
* ActionGirl: Carina is able to hold her own in a fight against Sarah.
* BigDamnHeroes: Pulls one in the Season 4 finale.
* ClassyCatBurglar: Not ''as'' classy as some examples, but she ''is'' a master thief when one is needed.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She genuinely falls for Morgan in Season 4, but doesn't handle it too maturely when Morgan keeps proving to her that he loves Alex. She gets over it eventually.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Towards Morgan. Originally she couldn't even remember his name, and shows very little respect for him. She warms up to him significantly after he stands up to her, [[spoiler: and even sleeps with him]].
* FemmeFatale: Her main modus operandi is seduction. She's so good at it that she's even able to get ''Casey'' to drop his guard, even when he's ''completely aware of her intentions''. [[SchmuckBait She's done this TWICE.]]
* MsFanservice: She spends a ''lot'' of her appearances in her underwear, swimsuits, and sexy cocktail dresses, and very much uses her appearance to advantage.
* VitriolicBestBuds: She had no qualms double-crossing Sarah to make herself look better to the government.

[[folder:Greta]]
!!'''Greta / Richard Noble / Victoria Dunwoody'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/greta01_5463.png]]
->''"I have a way with dealing with annoyances. It's very pleasant. But only to me."''

''Portrayed by Creator/OliviaMunn, [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike Isaiah Mustafa]], Wrestling/StacyKeibler, Creator/SummerGlau (pictured right)''

An agent(s) under Beckman's direct orders who is stationed at the rebuilt, CIA-run Buy More. Many different individuals assume the identity of Greta, for mission ambiguity and other...unclear purposes.

[[spoiler:Eventually, it is revealed that the Gretas were candidates for a new NCS project in which they were candidates vying to be new Intersect Agents. Greta-2 and Greta-3 and became the first members of this program, before a nearly catastrophic disaster resulted in the program being taken under Chuck's lead, and the two Gretas are subsequently de-Intersected.]]
----
Tropes Associated with the Gretas:
* TheAce: The Greta agents are some of the CIA's finest, but it's taken to ''absurd'' levels with Richard Noble. He makes being a Buy More employee look ''awesome''.
* ActorAllusion: [[{{Series/Firefly}} A subtle one]] with Summer Glau's incarnation when Casey stands up for his operation after Greta criticizes it. Isaiah Mustafa also plays his version of Greta as very similar to Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike. Stacy Kiebler has a brief rematch with Stone Cold Steve Austin.
* AxCrazy: Summer Glau's Greta is a little ''too'' kill crazy, though to be fair, she ''was'' [[EveryoneHasStandards aiming for Jeff and Lester.]] [[TooDumbToLive And they were being way more obnoxious than usual.]]
* EmotionlessGirl: Munn's portrayal of Greta.
* GutturalGrowler: Glau's Greta has a mean grunt, though not ''quite'' as impressive as Casey's as demonstrated in their grunt-off.
* KnifeNut: Summer's Portrayal of Greta ''really'' likes her knife.
* LegacyCharacter: There are four of them.
* MissionControl
* MrFanservice: Mustafa's portrayal.
* MsFanservice: The ''other'' Gretas. Olivia Munn's Greta is even introduced with a [[MaleGaze slow pan]] up her [[ShesGotLegs rather nice stems]].
* NoNameGiven: Of the four Gretas, two are eventually named: [[spoiler:Isaiah Mustafa's Greta-2 (Richard Noble) and Stacey Keibler's Greta-3 (Victoria Dunwoody)]].
* NotSoStoic: The Creator/SummerGlau Greta is the only Greta that ever breaks the façade in the Buy More. It seems not even a spy trained to control their emotions can deal with the annoyance that is Jeff and Lester.
* OmniscientDatabase: [[spoiler:Agents Noble and Dunwoody had access to the Intersect 2.0]].
* StealthHiBye: The Creator/SummerGlau Greta is a master.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Olivia Munn's incarnation of Greta was intended to have been a recurring role, however other commitments forced her to reluctantly drop out after her first appearance. It was then decided to rotate different actors into the role each appearance rather than drop the character.

[[folder:Roan Montgomery]]
!!'''Roan Montgomery'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roan01_9560.png]]
->''"The first rule of being a spy: never fall in love."''

''Portrayed by John Laroquette''

Was one of the best spies in the US government and known for his legendary exploits with the ladies, but is now....past his expiration date. Has a historical relationship with Gen. Beckman.
-----
Tropes Associated with Roan:
* TheAlcoholic: Loves his martinis far too much.
* ButtMonkey: Beckman fully enjoys torturing him....[[FateWorseThanDeath by making his next assignment be a Buy More employee]]. That's not even the first humiliation he goes through.
* BrokenAce: Despite his reputation and abilities he's a JadedWashout.
* TheCasanova: For God and Country, there is no woman on the planet he ''won't'' have sex with.
* CoolOldGuy: Tries to be one, but it's clear his glory days are behind him.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSestZIAdZw "65 Bars And A Taste Of Soul" by Watts 103rd St Rhythm Band]].
** The theme ''perfectly'' fits him, AND the song ''actually accompanies Chuck's intersect flash of him''. Yes. His own personal theme song is ''inside the Intersect database''.
* TheMentor: Roan taught his own class in seduction when he was in the CIA.
* NonActionGuy: He has yet to display his spy skills aside from pointing his gun.
* SharpDressedMan: So much so, he's never worn cotton in his life. He hates how the Buy More green shirt chafes.

[[folder:Director Bentley]]
!!'''Jane Bentley'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bentley001_6415.png]]
->''"You know what your problem is? You want people to like you too much. A true leader shouldn't care about that."''

''Portrayed by Robin Givens''

NCS Director in charge of the GRETA project to find field agents to imprint with the Intersect. After the project was scrapped, she was demoted to work directly under Chuck himself, much, ''much'' to her displeasure.
----
Tropes associated with Bentley:
* DefrostingIceQueen: By the end, she warms up to Chuck and his unorthodox methods.
* HeroicSacrifice: Subverted in that Chuck saves her when she was prepared to die.
* JerkAss: Casey calls her "...our Beckman but without the sparkling personality".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's still loyal to her country, but getting on her good side is...challenging.
* SmugSnake: Is she ever. Or was anyway.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: ''Despises'' Chuck and gleefully antagonizes him at every chance she gets. She finally gets over it after he saves her life.

[[folder:Clyde Decker]]
!!'''Clyde Decker'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/decker001_4510.png]]
->''"I'm not afraid to be the bad guy."''

''Portrayed by Richard Burgi''

Described as the CIA's toughest and most ruthless agent, Decker was hell-bent on getting rid of Volkoff and foiling Chuck. In the final season, along with a team of corrupt CIA agents, he was once more determined to destroy Carmichael Industries and eliminate Chuck, for rather mysterious reasons. [[spoiler:Those reasons were blackmail: Daniel Shaw discovered traces of his corruption, and used it to blackmail him into acting as his lackey. He was killed by Verbanski]].
-----
Tropes Associated with Decker:
* AssholeVictim: Probably the most despicable character in the series. Absolutely no one wept for him when Verbanski blew his ass up. Even [[spoiler:Shaw]] saw him as little more than a "slug" and a means to an end.
* BigBad: Of the first half of the final season. [[spoiler: Subverted. He's TheDragon to Shaw.]]
* TheDragon: To [[spoiler:Shaw]]. Though he WAS blackmailed, he still very much enjoyed tormenting Chuck.
* TheDreaded: Has a fierce reputation as a serious task master - even ''Casey'' is wary of him.
* JerkAss: ''Intensely'' unlikable and is an absolutely bastard to pretty much everyone around him. Even Beckman despises him.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: Debuts as a major antagonist in the final episode of Season 4, and has a much bigger role throughout the final season.
* ManipulativeBastard: Uses every trick in the book to get what he wants.
* SmugSnake: Every bad thing he does, he does with glee and satisfaction. He ''really'' likes to gloat especially.
