A mysterious figure to whom Talbot directly answers, Number Two has always disagreed with what he sees as Talbot’s sloppiness and zealotry. Number Two is perhaps the only person — mainly from having been around long enough, and in positions high enough, to know the dirty secrets of everyone, everywhere — with the authority to keep Talbot in line, until Talbot becomes Number One.
