Ash (Anthony Sean Howell)
Alex discovers that Ash, a mysterious and somewhat haunted character, is his Godfather after meeting with Ethan Brooke, head of Covert Action, ASIS. The idea of learning more about his past lures Alex into working for ASIS, alongside Ash investigating the ruthless Snakehead. Later, however, it is revealed that Ash worked for SCORPIA after leaving MI6 and that he was responsible for the death of Alex’s parents. At the end of Snakehead, Ash is shot by Fox (Ben Daniels) when the oil rig is stormed by the Australian SAS, while he was searching for the (non nuclear) bomb Royal Blue for MI6. His nickname, as well as being his initials, is a joke on the fact that Ash was seen smoking twice in the book (Alex noted that this was surprising, as he looked after himself in so many other ways).
