Defense Intelligence Agency:

Special Operations Group 7

    Captain Adam Dalton 

Adam Dalton

Played by: Mike Vogel

Leader of the SOG team based in Incirlik Air Base. He used to be with Delta Force.


    Chief Petty Officer Ezekiel "Preach" Carter 

Ezekiel Carter
Played by: Demetrius Grosse

Ex-Navy SEAL and SOG team member who runs video/audio surveillance.

  • Elites Are More Glamorous: Spent some time with the SEALs before he worked with the DIA.
  • Happily Married: Has three daughters and is married. But he gets annoyed from time to time when his kids call him and ask him to buy stuff for them.
  • Omniglot: Can speak English, French, and Arabic.
  • Meaningful Name: He's called Preach because he uses his Older and Wiser status to advice the younger members of the SOG in what to do in case things go south.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: On top of his call sign, he wears a very prominent cross necklace between missions and briefly discusses Christian theology with Alex Hoffman in "Close to Home, Part 1."

    Sergeant Jasmine "Jaz" Khan 

Jasmine Khan
Played by: Natacha Karam

A Muslim-American raised in New York state. She serves as the team's main sniper. Before joining the SOG, she was briefly trained in Delta Force.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Jaz uses her ethnicity to masquerade as an Arab Muslim during infiltration ops. She also has no problems pretending to be Latino.
  • Brooklyn Rage: Born and raised in New York.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Her exact ethnicity is never stated.
  • Cold Sniper: To her enemies before she kills them.
  • Flat "What": Her reaction to Alex Hoffman when he nonchalantly refers to Dalton as her boyfriend.
  • Knife Nut: Likes to use a combat knife when close quarters combat happens.
  • My Greatest Failure: Jaz tells Amir that her previous partner, Elijah Vallins, died during an op because he went to the wrong room. She didn't want the same thing to happen to Amir.
  • Omniglot: She speaks Arabic, English, French and some Russian & Farsi. Subverted on an op in Mexico where her not knowing Spanish almost blows the mission.
  • Raised Muslim: Her response when Amir asks if she is a Muslim is to say "I was raised a New Yorker." Throughout the entire series, she never shows or otherwise displays any indication that she practices the faith, unlike Amir.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: She's used to infiltrate places where a woman is seen to be less suspicious than a man. This tactic is mainly used in Middle Eastern countries like Syria & Iran since women aren't taken very seriously in special operations.
  • The Squadette: The only female commando in the SOG team.

    Sergeant Joseph J. "McG" McGuire 

Joseph McGuire
Played by: Noah Mills

The SOG's medic. He serves as the backup sniper in case Jaz is in the field. Used to be with Delta Force like Dalton.

  • Bad Liar: In episode 6 "The Seville Defection," he tells Paloma he's a Canadian and a medic. The next morning, the tattoo on his back obviously gives him away as American special forces. At least the medic part is true.
  • Combat Medic: His job is to patch up injuries of his comrades or allies in the field, unless the injury's serious that the person needs to go to the hospital.
  • Elites Are More Glamorous: Spent some time with Delta Force before he worked with the DIA.
  • Friendly Sniper: To his team.

    Agent Amir Al-Raisini 

Amir Al-Raisini
Played by: Hadi Tabbal

The new recruit and ex-intelligence agent who infiltrated ISIL operations prior to recruitment to the SOG. Used to be a field officer with the CIA.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Amir uses his ethnicity to easily pose as a local in a variety of locales from the Middle East to Mexico.
  • But Not Too Foreign: He's a Lebanese-American Muslim who grew up in Beirut.
  • Hero of Another Story: Before the show's events, he infiltrated ISIL in a covert operation and spent three years undercover under the watch of the CIA.
  • Impersonating an Officer: During an op in Turkey, Amir masquerades as a US Army CID officer.
  • The Infiltration: He posed as an ISIS fighter years ago as a The Mole.
  • Mole in Charge: During his time undercover with ISIS, he rose high enough in the organization that years later his name still carries a lot of weight. The leader of the Paris cell shows him great respect despite Amir showing up out of the blue and interfering in their operation.
  • My Greatest Failure: When he was 19, he blew off his younger sister and told her to take the bus home rather than drive her like he was supposed to. The bomb that took out the bus was so powerful that there were no remains for the family to bury, leading to Amir dedicating his life to taking down terrorist organizations.
  • New Meat: Is the newest member of the SOG.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: With a dose of Does This Remind You of Anything?, Amir's infiltration op into the ranks of ISIS is similar to the BBC news headline that the Iraqi military revealed that they ran a black op on ISIS's forces in Iraq when some soldiers infiltrated the group and was able to get the names and affiliation of its fighters and leaders.
  • Omniglot: Speaks Arabic, English and Farsi. He spoke French briefly in "Enhanced Protection." Subverted in episode 8, "Stealth" when he's the only team member who knows the Kazakh language, but he can barely string together a coherent sentence and him invoking the name of Allah in the language angers the Kazakh nomads the team is trying to calm down.
  • Real Men Love Muhammad: He is a devout Muslim who makes sure to pray even when he is in the middle of a mission.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: He is the prime infiltrator of the group whenever they need a closer look at things on the ground. Looking harmless and Beneath Notice enables him to fade into the background as easily as a potted plant.
  • Secretly Wealthy: He kept his family's wealth a secret from his team until he accidentally let it slip that his family had a cook when he was growing up, leading Dalton to use his embarrassment to surmise that the Al-Raisinis actually had an entire household staff.
  • Supreme Chef: He's the best cook in the team and fusses over his ingredients in contrast to how his teammates throw food that is vaguely edible onto the table.

    Patricia Campbell 

Patricia Campbell
Played by: Anne Heche

The current Deputy Director of the DIA. She lost her son, who was killed in combat operations in Afghanistan.

    Hannah Rivera 

Hannah Rivera

Played by: Sofia Pernas

An ex-CIA agent, who is currently a DIA analyst. She helps coordinate the DIA's activities.

  • Action Girl: A former field agent.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Grounded" has her be the SOG team's primary point of contact, as she is Colombian, speaks the language, and knows the country well.
  • Cunning Linguist: Is fluent in English and Spanish.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She was a field agent before being captured by a drug cartel and nearly tortured to death. She has a large scar on her neck and Campbell is seen reviewing photos that show it's just one of the dozens that cover her body.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Snaps at Noah when he implies the case in "The Greater Good" is too personal for her.
  • Dude Magnet: Downplayed, but she seems to have attracted the attention of both McG and Amir. And possibly Noah as well.

    Noah Morgenthau 

Noah Morgenthau
Played by: Tate Ellington

An ex-CIA agent, who is currently a DIA analyst. He's one of the agency's many cultural specialists.

  • Badass Book Worm: Used to be a career CIA agent before he was recruited to work for the DIA and is revealed to have been the top of his class during training at the Farm.
    • Informed Ability: Yet in spite of the above, he is easily fooled and held at gunpoint by the cute Hackette who turns out to be a Russian mole in "The Seville Defection."
  • Must Have Caffeine: Enjoys a drink of coffee in the morning before he starts work.
  • Non-Action Guy: He loves the fact that being an analyst means he can enjoy coffee and snacks while working.
  • You Are in Command Now: Temporarily in "Break Out" when Patricia is trapped in Helmand Prison and in "Grounded" while Patricia was being suspended.
