    Connors 

Detective James Connors

Species: Human

Portrayed by: J.D. Evermore

Appearances: Cloak and Dagger

A detective with the New Orleans Police Department responsible for killing Billy Johnson.


  • Arch-Enemy: To Tyrone Johnson, and later, to O'Reilly.
  • The Atoner: As of Cloak and Dagger Season 2, surprisingly, having spent months in the Darkforce Dimension and coming to regret his deeds. After he gets out, he does his best to try and help Tyrone clear his name.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: For Cloak and Dagger Season 1, along with Peter Scarborough. While Scarborough serves as the main antagonist for Tandy Bowen's storyline, Connors is the one for Tyrone Johnson's.
  • Canon Foreigner: He has no counterpart in the comics. His "Agent M" alias, however, belongs to an obscure S.H.I.E.L.D. agent that appeared in four issues of Micronauts in 1979 and 1980. His role as a corrupt cop becoming an enemy of O'Reilly may be a reference to Roger Falcone.
  • Corrupt Cop: Yep. Not only did he kill Billy Johnson, he's also involved in drug trafficking.
  • Dead Guy on Display: Mayhem puts Connors' body on display on the precinct's shooting range, with a "Guilty" sign on it.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: His fate in the Season Finale after trying to kill Tyrone one more time is to be sucked into the Darkforce Dimension.
  • Evil Old Folks: He's a dirty cop who is already starting to show signs of age, placing him in his late fifties or early sixties.
  • Evil Redhead: A corrupt police officer involved in drug traffic with red hair.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Sports a nasty-looking cut on the left side of his face.
  • Hate Sink: There's nothing remotely likable about him. At least at first.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: After giving Tyrone's mother, Adina, all the information she needed to know, she kills him, not being able to forgive him for all the pain he put on her and her family.

    Brigid O'Reilly 

Detective Brigid O'Reilly

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Emma Lahana

Appearances: Cloak and Dagger

A new detective with the New Orleans Police Department. Transferred from the 29th Precinct in NY.

see the MCU - Enhanced page for more info about Mayhem

  • A-Team Firing: Ever since Mayhem split off of Brigid, Brigid lost the ability to shoot properly. Mayhem on the other hand has Improbable Aiming Skills.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Brigid wears dark red nail polish while Mayhem wears green.
  • Celebrity Paradox: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. reveals that Power Rangers exists in-universe. Emma Lahana played Kira Ford, the Yellow Ranger of Power Rangers Dino Thunder.
  • Fair Cop: A detective who is easy on the eyes.
  • Literal Split Personality: After being shot by Connors at the end of Season 1, she is exposed to the Roxxon chemicals mixed with the forces that gave Tandy and Tyrone their powers. This causes her to be split into a good side (who largely retains her previous personality) and an evil side (who takes the name Mayhem and despises her good side).
  • New Meat: Played with. She's newly hired to the NOPD, but she's a veteran detective from Harlem's 29th Precinct.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: O'Reilly wanted to help Tyrone take down Connors and expunge the corrupt cops in her Precinct. By the end of the season her boyfriend was murdered and (literally) Stuffed in the Fridge for her to find, Connors ends up escaping the Gaslighting operation she pulled off, Connors shoots her, and she ends up with a doppelganger that wants to kill her in Mayhem.
  • One Degree of Separation: She mentions to Fuchs in passing that the weirdness of Tyrone's powers isn't too strange since she's used to life in New York and mentions her friend Misty and the weird stories she could tell.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: At first, it seems like the guy who tried to rape Tandy will be able to pass off his injuries as being mugged. But when O'Reilly looks closer at the evidence, she realizes that something is wrong, since he has defensive wounds and his pants were unbuckled, and she realizes that he tried to attack Tandy. The boy's family eventually bribes Connors to blame a dead junkie for it, going over O'Reilly's head and straight to her lieutenant to close the case.
  • Secret Keeper: Tyrone shows her and Fuchs his abilities, trusting they'll keep the secret.
  • Split-Personality Merge: In Season 2 Episode 8, Two Player, Brigid decides to merge, and voluntarily surrenders control over their body to Mayhem, concluding that Mayhem's more ruthless approach against crime is needed.

Officer Kenneth Fuchs

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Lane Miller

  • Deal with the Devil: To save Tyrone, who is on the verge of death, she decides to marry the loa Baron Samedi in exchange for Ty's life.
  • He Is Not My Boyfriend: Insists that Tyrone is not her boyfriend to Aunt Chantelle. Note that this is the episode after Tyrone gave her his jacket (which is an old St. Sebastian tradition to show that a girl is dating a guy) and they slept together at his house, so she's probably just trying to keep her aunt out of her private life.
  • Hidden Depths: She is able to push Tandy out of her head through sheer Heroic Willpower.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Despite doing the tour guides for her family's voodoo shop, Evita has some hidden resentment for her family's business. All she wanted was to go to college and then med school to become a doctor. She gives this dream up to become her aunt's successor as mambo and save Tyrone's life.

Johnson Family

    Adina Johnson 

Adina Johnson

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Gloria Reuben

Appearances: Cloak and Dagger

The wife of Otis Johnson and mother of Billy and Tyrone Johnson.


  • The Chessmaster: Shows some deep cunning when she gets both her wish to kill Connors and exonerate her son from being wanted for murder by obtaining the info she needed, then leading Connors into a prepared room where she can murder him. She then goes to Father Delgado where she abuses priest-penitent privilege to get the info to the authorities to free Tyrone without having to reveal the source. Connors' corpse is eventually put on display at the police shooting range by Mayhem, and Adina gets away with murder.
  • My Beloved Smother: Can be this at times, though it's justified. She's afraid to lose Tyrone the same way she lost Billy.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Her son Billy died when he was a teenager, and she's never really recovered from it.
  • Parental Neglect: Of the emotional variety. The trauma of losing Billy left her convinced that even if Tyrone does everything perfect, she's still going to lose him.
  • Revenge Before Reason: She murders Connors, despite his honest attempts to atone for his sins.
  • Take a Third Option: When Tyrone leaves her alone with Connors to sort out her pent up feelings towards the man who killed one of her sons and framed the other one for lying and murdering someone, Adina is not sure if she should kill Connors to quench her thirst for vengeance or to leave him alive to exonerate Tyrone. She takes a third option by getting out all the information she needs from Connors, then killing him.
