The Number One (from Alan Ford) is a very old disabled man (he has memories from Ancient Greece and claims to have met characters such as Homer and Robespierre), he is the supreme leader of group TNT. He treats the other agents severely. He has lots of connections, including a pocket-sized "black book" containing the indiscretions of everyone in the world. The NYPD often turns to him for help. He lives in a secret shelter away from the flower shop.
