1Characters who appear in Robert Muchamore's Literature/CHERUBSeries.²²!!CHERUB Agents² [=CHERUBs=] (Charles Henderson's Espionage Research Unit B) are a group of highly-trained intelligence agents (child spies essentially) who are recruited by the British Government to go undercover in dangerous operations and pose as regular children in order to gain access to remote areas of the operations. These missions can include gang infiltrations, befriending the children of big time drug lord or crime boss or simply posing as orphans in homes to recruit new members.²²* ChildSoldiers: CHERUB agents can be any age up to 18 years old, and certainly do some dangerous missions that can involve class A drugs, guns and explosives.
