CIA analyst for the South Asia desk. A young professional in all meanings of that word, Hoi Yan colors within the lines, does everything right and is 100% reliable.

Often derisively called “the last cowboy” and not particularly well-liked for it, CIA Deputy Director Marsh is a relic, but a useful one. In his tenure in the Clandestine Services, problems were usually solved in the back corners of dive bars, and he prefers “having an understanding” and shaking hands to the cold, military mindset that seems to be infecting the CIA these days. He’s definitely one to keep away from young agents as he’s seen the seedy underbelly, moral compromises and most of all the uncertainties of Cold War espionage up close, but he’s the closest thing to a man with principles you’re liable to meet in this line of work.
