Family Henry (son)
David Atkins was a scientist and a widely respected Professor at Caltech University, as an expert in psycho-cybernetics and computer technology. Later a he became a computer Doctor working for Science Frontiers, where he became friends with Kyle Bates. He was a good person and had a son named Henry, whom he was proud of and had higher expectations for when he got older. When the Visitors came and started discrediting scientists, they ruined his career, and was fired from his position. To make ends meet, he opened a small market shop called "Atkins Deluxe Market", which he ran with Henry. Despite him having lost everything during the First Invasion, David still wanted his son to be a great scientist and taught him everything he knew about computers, leading Henry to become an expert himself and run many personal projects in making computers better.

During the Second Invasion one year after Liberation Day, David struggled to get by financially, as the Visitors had cracked down to the point his food shipments were late to the point they never came at all, nearly putting him out of business (though he kept supplies around for regulars as a token of generosity, but insisted they keep it secret due to their situation). One month after his last communication with Kyle, David and Henry decided to become Resistance members when one of Henry's projects led a to massive breakthrough in computer warfare. Dave considered his inventions to be "remarkable" and insisted that they had to notify the Resistance immediately, as access to the information in the Visitors computer could be invaluable to the war effort. But before they could discuss it further, the Visitors arrived and began rounding up his neighbors; looking for Henry. David insisted Henry leave without him as it was important that one of them lived and some part of their family survived. David was then captured but Henry escaped.

David was held along with the rest of his neighbors in an abandoned maintenance shed near Hanson Air Field, but was moved to the Mothership by Lydia before Henry returned with a Resistance team compromised of Mike Donovan, Kyle, Elizabeth Maxwell and Visitor Willie. While on the ship, David claimed he was the Hacker (to protect his son), and admitted to charges of computer tampering. Diana found his readiness to admit his guilt suspicious, and after a quick test, it was proven he wasn't the Hacker when he failed to break through Visitor security codes, as he wasn't as familiar with the operation system as the real Hacker was. Diana then used intense mental pressure torture to demand the Hacker's identity, and also accessed his inner-most thoughts and secrets to learn it was Henry who was the Hacker. David was then put into prison aboard the ship.

Philip did everything he could, and was eventually successful in freeing him and transporting him back down to Earth, where he reunited with Henry and were then both taken by the Fifth Column to a safe place to hide from further Visitor reprisals.

Family David (father)

Henry Atkins is the son of computer technology genius Doctor David Atkins and family friend of Kyle Bates. When the Visitors came to Earth, they ruined David's career, forcing them to open a small market shop called "Atkins Deluxe Market" to make ends meet, which he ran with him. David still wanted his son to be a great scientist as he had high expectations for him. To help him, David taught Henry everything he knew about computers, leading Henry to become an expert himself and run many personal projects in making computers better, he bonded with his father, as he was grateful for teaching him so well, and insisted he "learned from the best".

During the Second Invasion one year after Liberation Day, Henry and his father joined the Resistance when Henry discovered a couple of weeks ago, he was working on one of his side projects when he stumbled upon the access codes for the Visitors Main Computer link, giving him direct access to Visitor Master Computer and information sources despite their intense security. He made it easier to break in by creating a specially-calibrated portable computer for the task of hacking, and making software for a communications interface program, that "talked" to the computer aboard the mothership, and a translation program for Visitor computer language. Henry noticed an alarming increase in computer usage lately, and tapped into a communication from Sirius 4 to find out what it was. Unfortunately, the Visitors were able to see through his efforts to make his hacking signal look like interference in the Visitors communication reception, and Lieutenant James traced it to Henry's neighborhood. Agreeing Henry had to be stopped, Diana sent James and a battalion of Visitor shock troops to capture the Hacker. Just as James and his men began rounding up the neighbours, David said he would stay behind and let himself be taken prisoner as a way to let Henry escape. Henry, however, refused to abandon his father and suggested they could both hide, but was convinced not to as it was important one of their family survived. While his father was captured, Henry sneaked out the back with his computer and ran down the street and over some rooftops, and swore the Visitors would pay for taking his father away as David was bundled into a van.

Henry eventually returned to the shop after the Visitors left, and barricaded himself in. He met Mike Donovan and Kyle, and learned that the increased computer usage was because of the newly-completed Visitor Battlesphere; a deadly war machine armed with weapons and a fleet of skyfighters that the Visitor Leader was sending to wipe out the entire South Western United States in a massive blitz, as an example to all who defied his people's power. This would promise total victory for the Visitors and total domination of the Earth, and since the Resistance lacked any computer systems and with only 36 hours to stop the sphere, Mike and Kyle sought The Hacker out. Henry made a deal with them; he would do everything he could to stop the sphere, in exchange they would free his father from Visitor custody. They agreed, and Henry helped the two men escape through a secret passageway just before James and his men stormed the building again to double-check after failing to capture the Hacker.

Henry, Mike, Kyle and fellow Resistance members Elizabeth Maxwell and Visitor Willie eventually tracked David's location to an abandoned maintenance shed near Hanson Air Field, but became despondent when David wasn't among the people they rescued. The group talked to Philip, who informed them that David was on the Mothership and out of their reach. Henry suggested that he turn himself in as part of a plan to save his father on his own, but Kyle convinced him that his father could not be saved, and he had to carry on the fight without him. Henry was then escorted to Science Frontiers, where the group planned to use to use a specially-made computer system on the top floor to break into the Battlesphere's computer system, as it was the only one powerful enough on Earth to hack into it. Unfortunately, the group was trapped by James and his troops, but Elizabeth saved the group when they were poised to be captured by restoring power to the elevator and journeyed to the top floor, then sent the elevator back down with a grenade, killing several of James's troops. While Donovan and Willie held off James and his men, Kyle took Henry to the room he could interface his computer with, and after Elizabeth restored the power to the room, he was initially despondent about his ability to stop the attack, but Elizabeth reminded him of what he had to do. After making contact with the Battlesphere, he then had to install his translation program into the system and accessed all the systems, including; "protected, skyfighter guidance, power relay, system interface, security, battle orders and skyfighter guidance interface" and redirected its fleet of skyfighters into flying off course and crash into each other and into the sphere, destroying it and killing thousands of Visitor soldiers.

The team then escaped the building and fled into the woods, where he was reunited with his father, who had been freed by Philip, and were then both taken by the Fifth Column to a safe place to hide from further Visitor reprisals.

Tony then led 4 other kids, including Ellen, into Widows Canyon, where they organized as the "Wildcats", a rogue Resistance group that did whatever it took to survive. Though they maintain their anti-Visitor views, most of the official Resistance groups regarded them as untrustworthy.

When a diphtheria outbreak started sweeping through the region, LA Resistance members Kyle Bates, Visitor Willie, Julie Parrish and Elizabeth Maxwell came to the region to offer medical support, but lacked a crucial medicine to treat those affected. Desperate to get aid for an attack on a Visitor medical storehouse where a large stash of the medicine was located, the Resistance gained the reluctant assistance from the Wildcats and Ellen struck up a bond with Willie, but was later repulsed when he learned of his true nature. When faced with the possibility of a traitor in their ranks when the medicine was switched for a fake before the raid, Ellen was confronted by Willie over who he was and she was initially devastated, but made up with him after Andy was discovered to be the mole.

Ellen, the group, and the Resistance group journeyed to a local airfield, where Mike Donovan had another supply of the medicine from Los Angeles and was flying in now. However, Andy told Lieutenant James of the rendezvous shortly before his capture and the gang was forced to fight the Visitors. But just as the group was about to be overwhelmed by an armed Visitor convoy. Andy, who had escaped custody and realized how large a mistake he made and came to help, then crashed his car into the convoy, destroying it completely and killing himself in the process.

Family Nathan Bates (father: deceased)
Kyle Bates is a professional motorbike racer who drifted through life and the only son of Nathan Bates. Kyle and his father hadn't spoken since the First Invasion; when Kyle was expelled from Stanford University. Kyle spent his time mostly racing his bikes in Arizona and Nevada.

When the Second Invasion began one year after Liberation Day, Kyle was caught behind the new Visitor front lines and, having shown a hostile attitude towards the Visitor Army, was detained and sent to one of their newly-constructed internment camps. He was freed by Mike Donovan and Ham Tyler and decided aiding the Resistance "wouldn't be so bad", especially when he met and fell in love with Elizabeth "Starchild" Maxwell. He began to be a more active supporter to the cause and this brought him into increasing conflict with his father. Kyle actively joined the Resistance when he assisted Ham in stealing explosives from a Science Frontiers-controlled munitions warehouse, which was filled with confiscated Resistance weapons. Kyle injured a security guard before being captured. This act effectively ended any relationship between him and his father. After escaping custody with Elizabeth's help, Kyle joined the Resistance full-time.

Kyle eventually reconciled with Nathan, but shortly after this reunion, Nathan was killed by Mr. Chiang (who Kyle killed in turn). Kyle became Ham's protege (earning the nickname "Ace") to hone his skills as a freedom fighter without personal restraint. After Ham left, Kyle took greater risks to himself to save lives and complete Resistance missions across the United States. All the while his relationship with Elizabeth grew.

In the (unaired) series finale, Kyle and Elizabeth both survived an assassination attempt by Diana on the Leader and they narrowly escaped back to Earth. Kyle and the rest of the Resistance is currently hunting for the "Anyx", an artifact that can defeat the Visitors amidst the destruction the Visitors wrought upon the world during the temporary Armistice, which the Visitors used to crush the majority of the Resistance.

Death Killed by the Visitors
Portrayer Leonardo Cimino
Status Deceased
Gender Male Quote: tell all your friends "V" For Victory! Family Un-named Wife (deceased), Stanley (son), Lynn (daughter-in-law), Daniel (grandson: deceased)
Abraham Bernstein was a Jewish member of the Berlin community and lived with his wife and 8-month-old son Stanley. In 1938, when the Nazi Party took control of the country, Abraham was disturbed by their growing power, but told his family that it would eventually pass. However, he was wrong, as World War 2 was declared and Jewish discrimination and Nazi Holocaust began. Abraham joined the Jewish underground, hoping to smuggle his family out of the country, and was successful in reaching a concentration camp where an underground agent helped them escape to Britain, with his son hidden in a suitcase. Unfortunately, his wife was separated after arriving at the camp and, after being brutally decontaminated, was taken to the "showers" and gassed to death. Abraham never forgot the moment she was taken away and, coupled with the bar code numbers tattooed into the skin on his forearm, suffered from his experiences in Nazi Germany constantly. He decided, however, that his son was too young to know the truth and told him that his mother died in the boxcar train of a heart attack, before they made it to the camp. 40 years later, Abraham lived in America with his now-full grown son Stanley, his daughter-in-law Lynn, and grandson Daniel. He had also befriended a local neighbor, Ruby Engels, after enjoying long walks to the supermarket together. The friendship lasted for 17 years, and Ruby began helping Abraham "let go" of the past.

When the Visitors came to Earth, his son and his wife remained calm and kept believing they were peaceful, but Abraham, after noticing the Visitors growing power and appearance in everyday life, remained convinced that the Visitors would bring destruction and death. His beliefs became enforced when the Visitors commandeered the local authorities, controlling all types of media and forming a youth group, similar to the Hitler Youth of Nazi Germany, which Daniel joined. Abraham learned of the recently-formed Resistance movement and began operating however he could to help them. One such occasion brought him into conflict with Stanley, after Abraham let the Maxwells hide in their homes poolhouse, but, after revealing the true circumstances behind his mother's death, convinced him that "they have to stay, or else we haven't learned a thing". Stanley and Lynn soon both joined the Resistance after this. Abraham is most famous for the infamous "V" mark (which is the series' logo and the Resistance's mark of activity) which quickly spread around the world and was used by graffiti artists and active Resistance members to deface Visitor property and declare their continued resistance over their lives. When Daniel left to alert his Visitor superiors as to the location of the Maxwells, Abraham, knowing he couldn't live the life of a fugitive again due to his age, voluntarily stayed behind and waited for the Visitors to arrive, and when they stormed the house, all they found was him and all he says is "shalom". He willingly went to his death after his capture.

Ruby later went up to a Visitor Shuttle and, as she was arming a petrol bomb she declared "this one's for Abraham" and threw the bomb into the craft, destroying it and killing several Visitors and allowed many prisoners to escape.

Lynn Bernstein is the wife of Stanley and mother of Daniel. When the Visitors came to Earth, she initially remained calm as she believed the initial chaos of their arrival would die out. However she grew more supportive of the Resistance when limitations were imposed on communications, travel and media coverage and began suspecting Daniel of being dangerous to the family after hearing dangerous rumors on the streets, which was later proven correct, as she and Stanley were captured and her father-in-law Abraham was killed when the Daniel tipped of the Visitors about the location of the Maxwells, who were hiding in their poolhouse.

Stanley was separated from her and tortured on the Mothership by Diana, but she and Stanley were freed by Mike Donovan and returned to their home. They then agreed to shelter additional families in hiding, as the Visitors would never suspect Resistance members hiding in a place they've already raided. She and Stanley kept a low profile, but both came out of hiding to celebrate the new Liberation Day when the Red Dust was spread all over the world, rendering it toxic to the Visitors. Lynn and Stanley then took Polly and Katie Maxwell into their care at Robert Maxwell's urging shortly after the war, as he couldn't cope on his own.

Family Eleanor (mother), Sean (son)
Michael "Mike" Donovan was a news cameraman who was partnered with Tony Wah Chong Leonetti and went around the globe documenting stories for airing on the news, he is also son of Eleanor Dupres, ex-husband of Marjorie Donovan and father of Sean. Mike first witnessed a Visitor Mothership arriving while in El Salvador (where he learns the basic rules of being a freedom fighter from local rebels), and he and Tony were representatives of the news group for the first tour aboard the Los Angeles Mothership. Mike initially thought the Visitors were friendly, but when Tony pointed out suspicious activity among high-ranking scientists (at a time scientists were becoming increasingly ostracized), Mike and Tony attempted to sneak aboard the LA Mothership to discover the truth, but Mike and Tony were ambushed on the landing platform and Tony and he were separated.

Lieutenant Martin, a Visitor Mike had befriended and was really leader of the Fifth Column; a Visitor movement dedicated to bring peace to their people, freed Mike and revealed Tony had been experimented to death by Diana. Martin then helped Mike, Robin Maxwell and Sancho Gomez escape in a shuttle back to Earth, and also revealed why the Visitors had come to their world; the Visitors plan to steal the population of Earth for food and the entire worlds water supply as their own world was dying.

Upon arrival, Mike joined the Resistance; led by Julie Parrish, to stop the Visitors plans. Mike led the Resistance (using methods he learned in El Salvador) to victory time and again, and struck up a romantic relationship with Julie and crude friendship with a gruff and experienced Resistance member named Ham Tyler (who gave him the nickname "Gooder", which was short for "Do-gooder" as he constantly did things to help others despite risks to his life). When the time came to decide whether or not to use the newly-created Red Dust on the Visitors, Mike vouched for it and was supported by Elias Taylor and several other key members of the Resistance leadership.

He and Martin, who had now mobilized his movement to openly help the Resistance, led the attack on the LA Mothership and stopped the self-destruct intended to destroy the Earth. He then took the ship, now under Resistance control, back to Earth victorious.

One year after Liberation Day, Mike has returned to his job as a cameraman, this time with Martin as his sound operator and is poised to become a full-time anchorman, but his relationship with Julie has ended. However, he now has a world-wide reputation of a freedom fighter and "Hero of the Resistance", and has even gained the grudging respect of the Visitors themselves. When Diana is supposedly "assassinated" by agents of Ham Tyler. Mike and Martin pursue her and corner her at Tyler's hideout. Martin then knocks Mike out and attempts to kill Diana himself. Martin fails and warns Mike (now conscious) of Diana's plan to re-invade the Earth before dying in his arms. Mike joins up with Tyler to hunt down and kill Diana, but fail to stop her from escaping the planet and returning to the Visitor fleet. Donovan catches up with Diana at the southwest tracking station, noticing that Diana is already calling the second orbital fleet he plans to keep Diana Earth-bound long enough for the Red Dust to take effect. Mike yells and says that she doesn't have much time, Diana notices her timer is nearly ran out bailing out of a short gunfight, Diana heads for the rooftop, however Donovan beats her there and she fires a shot planning to kill him. seeing the Visitor shuttle arriving Mike realizes he doesn't have much time. seeing Diana making a run for it he yells then Diana turns around Mike fires several shots hitting Diana in the chest and twice in the back before she leaves. once inside Diana pulls a bullet shell fragment from her uniform saying "What a primitive planet.

During the Second Invasion, Mike and Tyler join up with Resistance; now reunited by Julie Parrish and resumed to wage war against the Visitors across the United States, Mike also becomes more independent when Tyler leaves for Chicago and forms the "bond of friendship" with Philip, Martin's twin brother and new leader of the Fifth Column. Mike became the primary leader of many Resistance cells, going across the world to fight the Visitor armies, becoming a symbol of hope to the human race and even gaining the grudging respect of the Visitors themselves, who made him into the Most Wanted Man on Earth.

In the (unaired) series finale, Mike and the rest of his Resistance group narrowly escape the Los Angeles Mothership, although Julie is vaporized, and narrowly escape back to Earth, where they are reunited with Ham Tyler. Mike and the rest of the group are now hunting for an artifact called the "Anyx" to use against the Visitors amidst the devastation wrought by the Visitors during the temporary Armistice, which the Visitors took advantage of to crush the majority of the Resistance.

Father Andrew Doyle was a Roman Catholic priest who served as a missionary in foreign countries to bring the word of God to the people. While serving in South Africa, he used his church to also hide refugees, mostly children and families, from the guerrilla groups fighting in constant civil wars. One guerrilla came into the church in search of suspected rival guerrillas (but were in-fact two children and a young woman). Knowing he was going to kill the family if he got the chance, Andrew shot him and the guerrilla died. Because of his sacrilegious act, and the fact he never took a life before, he was constantly wracked with guilt and left the country some time later, and returned to his home in Los Angeles.

When the First Invasion began, Andrew joined the Resistance group under Julie Parrish's command. He was willing to go into battle and, using his experience in Africa and other hostile nations, proved himself to be a capable soldier and helped his fellow rebels on a variety of missions. He still continued his religious duties, such as performing sermons, "last rights" ceremonies (for terminally injured rebels), eulogies at funerals and other religious services. He also had a secret desire for peace with the Visitors as he saw the entire war as a waste of life.

When Elizabeth Maxwell was born, Andrew grew afraid of the increasingly hostile attitude by many, even her own grandfather Robert Maxwell, towards the girl. He also began to see her as living proof of the possibility of peace he desired and considered her a miracle of God. When Robin used the experimental Red Dust on Elizabeth's father, Brian, Andrew's fears reached its breaking point and took the girl, left the base they were staying and willingly turned himself in to the Visitors. For delivering the girl to her custody; Diana gave sanctuary and proper accommodations to Andrew, and with orders for him to be treated like a guest, rather than a prisoner.

After Abraham willingly went to his death at the Visitor's hands, she dedicates herself to fighting the Visitors, first by destroying a Visitor Shuttle in Abraham's memory with a petrol bomb, and then acting as a spy for the L.A. Resistance Cell at the Visitor Embassy by using her old acting tricks to disguise her true identity by posing as a cleaning lady. She befriends many amongst the group, especially Julie Parrish (who she helps gain the confidence to lead the group) and even the gruff Ham Tyler (who feels comfortable around her to the point of talking to her about his tragic past). Ruby became crucial to several key Resistance operations, such as John's unmasking and told her friends that the thrill she experienced from spying is like the big-time acting career she never had.

He loved his job, (apparently almost as much as Julie loved medicine), and adapted his impatient and stubborn nature to adapt to his profession, such as regularly studying the stock market, dabbling his small fortune in stocks and bonds and even becoming an avid reader of the Wall Street Journal. Despite being obsessed with his job, he never lost sight with his relationship with Julie, as he didn't bother her with facts about his job (which Julie found boring), acknowledged Julie was smarter than he was and enjoyed her company, unlike most stubborn men and cared about Julie feelings and happiness. This led to a deep bond between the two, to the point Julie regularly called him "Denny" and felt she couldn't leave him.

When the Visitors first arrived on Earth, Dennis considered it a historic occasion, but wasn't as curious about the Visitors themselves as Julie was. When the Visitors began producing chemicals with the help of the human population, Dennis took advantage of the new change in the market by putting stock in the new industry, quickly expanding his fortune. When the "Conspiracy of Scientists" appeared and ostracization towards scientists began, Dennis began losing accounts due to his clients knowing of Julie's status as a biochemist and medical student. Julie realized this, despite Dennis's attempts to dissuade her, and to prevent Dennis from losing his job, Julie packed up and left him. Dennis reluctantly agreed to let her go because he still had feelings for her.

When the Resistance began fighting the Visitors, who were truly reptilians instead of humanoids, Dennis decided to support Julie's Resistance group by providing it with funding.

This relationship ended when Steven asked Julie for her hand in marriage; she initially accepted, but later backer out, as she couldn't face the prospect of becoming a housewife when she wanted to become a doctor. Steven was devastated. Later he graduated and became a doctor and a renowned biologist, known for his work with recombinant DNA.

During the Second Invasion one year after Liberation Day, Steven allowed himself to be captured by the Visitors and brought to the Mothership; who wanted to use him to create a virus that caused its victims to fall into a vegetative-like state, when in fact he was planning to break into the Mothership's Vault and destroy their entire supply of active viral weapons; which would end the Visitors ability to wage a biological attack on Earth (because the germs that make up the virus could only be cultivated on Sirius 4 and would take years to replace). Steven worked on the virus for three months, steadily planning to destroy the virus, and was meanwhile forced to experiment on captured humans, filling him with guilt at him turning people into "zombies", and was also threatened by his Visitor supervisors to get his work done on time or risk execution. This was because Steven altering each sample of the virus before he used it to derail the research. He also modified his permanent store of the virus to die within 12 hours of infecting a subject, allowing all the test subjects to recover.

When Mike Donovan and Julie, now a doctor herself, came aboard with Philip's assistance to salvage a list of Resistance leaders names and locations from Visitor custody, Julie reunited with Steven and began to mend their relationship. With Mike's assistance, Steven formed crude and powerful explosives out of the chemical compounds in his lab and, after setting fire to his lab as a diversion, accessed the vault, and used the explosives to destroy the inside of the room, along with the viruses. After Mike and Julie found the list, they escaped the Mothership with Steven.

As they parted ways, Steven, now friends with Mike due to their similar nature, planned to one day take a skyfighter ride with him through "clear skies" when the war ended. He also planned to get back together with Julie. Although he wanted to get back together with her now (which she reciprocated), he had many tasks to perform for the Resistance; such as making sure the Visitors viral complex would never be rebuilt, help his staff and their families make it to the Free Zone and then aid in the research being done there that could defeat the Visitors.

A short time later, Julie was killed in the (unaired) series finale while on the Mothership. Steven never had the chance to see her again.

She is the only known successful offspring between the two peoples and is a product of one of Diana's experiments into crossbreeding. When she was born, it was discovered she had a younger twin reptilian brother; who died from exposure to an infection (which was the basis for the Red Dust). Elizabeth however thrived and began aging at a rapid rate to the point she was an 8-year-old mere hours after birth. When Elizabeth's father, Brian, was killed by her mother, Robin, Father Andrew Doyle grew afraid for her safety and took her to the Visitors for her own protection. Diana realised the importance of the child and kept her close by. She was brought back to her family following the Red Dust poisoning the Earth against Visitor habitation, and demonstrated remarkable abilities, such as disabling the self-destruct device intended to destroy the Earth.

One year after Liberation Day, Elizabeth is seen living with her mother and grandfather at their mountain ranch. The world media is centred around learning about her and are curious of her involvement in saving the Earth and keep trying to talk to her, but Elizabeth uses her new telekinetic abilities to keep them away.

As a result, the Visitors (primarily Diana) make repeated attempts to capture her as her DNA may hold the key to develop a permanent cure or anti-toxin to the Red Dust and allow the Visitors to conquer the remaining protected areas of the world. Elizabeth's DNA can also be used to create a new version of the Red Dust that is harmless to life on Earth, In "V" The Final Battle she trying to make peace with Diana, Diana said "It's not in our destiny" Elizabeth said peace again in Visitor language but Diana yelled No!

Robin Maxwell is the 17-year-old daughter of Robert and Kathleen and older sister to Polly and Katie. She was an impulsive teenager who frequently made dangerously foolish decisions. When her old boyfriend, Daniel Bernstein, reports her family to the Visitors when she rejects him, Robin and her family join the Resistance. Robin, wanting to explore, goes outside the base and is quickly captured by Visitor soldiers and taken to the Visitor Mothership above Los Angeles. It is here she is made love to by Brian and left pregnant with his baby. Robin is rescued, along with Sancho Gomez, by Mike Donovan and returned to her family. Attempts to have the child aborted fail, and Robin gives birth to twins, one boy and one girl. The largely-Visitor boy dies of an infection while the largely-Human girl; now named Elizabeth, survives. It is revealed that the combination of Human and Visitor DNA caused the spontaneous development of an organism toxic to Visitor physiology. This organism is later refined into the "Red Dust". When Brian is captured to be used in a test of the Red Dust, Robin, who is thirsting for vengeance for using her to create a hybrid baby, uses the Dust on him; killing him nearly instantly. Robin then begins to have feelings for her child after Father Andrew Doyle took Elizabeth away for her own safety. Robin and Elizabeth were reunited when the Resistance captures the Los Angeles Mothership and returns the Earth, which is now toxic to Visitor habitation due to the Red Dust.

One year after Liberation Day, Robin is shown to have matured and is more responsible and joins the Resistance during the Second Invasion by the Visitors. Though she sometimes acts childish, especially when she fell in love with Kyle Bates, who did not reciprocate, but instead had feelings for a now grown-up Elizabeth. After a second attempt is made to impregnate her (as her DNA is the only strand on the Earth that can be manipulated to combine with Visitor DNA), she decides to leave for Chicago, where the Visitors cannot survive due to the lingering effects of the Red Dust.

When the Visitors arrived on Earth, Brad was among those of the Earth's population who became suspicious of the Visitors true intentions, and was alarmed when he noticed that all of the police officers, including his partner, who wouldn't go along with the Visitors "requests" vanished. Brad saw the need to defend themselves against the Visitors and joined the new-formed Resistance, but still remained as a police officer. Brad was among those who met with Julie in an abandoned laundromat for the purpose of forming a Resistance group, and he agreed that an and agreed that an underground movement was necessary in the face of the growing power of the Visitors. Though he lacked proper knowledge of tactics, Brad knew basic survival needs and brought up the topic of weapons to defend themselves with.

Doctor Rudolph Metz was an elderly scientist and expert in biochemistry. He had a highly-successful career, even with him becoming a Nobel Prize winner. He became the mentor of Doctor Julie Parrish, a promising young fourth-year medical student, and arranged for her to stay longer when she perfected several medical techniques he had been trying for years to perfect on his own. When the Visitors arrived on Earth, Metz and his colleagues were all eager to learn the secrets behind Visitor physiology, and tried to use his invitations to Visitor science seminars to learn about them. However, this proved useless as the seminars had little or no useful information, leaving the group clueless about the alien's true nature. When people, mostly scientists, started to disappear, Metz paid little attention, until Ruth, one of his oldest colleagues and secret love interest, disappeared after successfully gaining access to the Visitor's DNA. Metz was devastated when the police investigation (effortless due to the Visitors secretly hampering their progress) turned up nothing and no idea what happened to Ruth. Metz, who secretly loved Ruth, became inconsolable, shutting himself up in his office for hours and chain-smoking (though he hadn't had a cigarette since 1963). When the "Conspiracy of Scientists" began appearing on television, Metz was a suspect after another alleged member "gave up" his name to the authorities after being arrested. The police promptly searched through Metz's office, but he was confident they wouldn't find anything. However, fake evidence had been planted in his office without his knowledge and was discovered in the search. Within hours of the police departure, Metz and thousands of other scientists went missing, all dead after being captured and eaten by the Visitors.

Occupation Supreme Commander of U.S. Military, Resistance Cell Leader
Curtis Morgan was a high-ranking General in the United States Army and Air Force. Shortly after the First Invasion ended and the Visitors were driven from the Earth by the Red Dust, Morgan was among the few military leaders that remained uncorrupted by Visitor conversion, and was promoted by the president himself to become Supreme Commander of the entire U.S. Military. Morgan helped reconstruct the country and oversaw security matters in all major cities; normally coordinating with Resistance groups when troop divisions were spread thin. General Morgan then ordered the development of an early warning system for a possible Visitor incursion; which took shape in the form of "Vanguard One", a manned satellite installation placed in orbit for such a purpose and also formulated a plan; "Code Delta" with Nathan Bates, where a series of storage tanks rigged to explode on a single command would release the entire remaining supply of the Red Dust drug to wipe out invading Visitor armies. One year after Liberation Day, when Diana escaped the Earth to the returning Visitor Fleet, Mike Donovan and Julie Parrish went to General Morgan and tried to convince him that the Visitors were about to launch an attack, but didn't believe them and assured them that "Vanguard One" would have detected such a force; but while in communication with "Vanguard One"'s commander (who also believes all is well), "Vanguard One" is completely destroyed by the Visitor attack force; who were hiding behind Earth's Moon to escape detection. General Morgan placed the entire nation's military and police armies on full alert and mobilized them to meet any Visitor ground troops. Just before the battle began, General Morgan prepared "Code Delta" for deployment with Bates, who cancelled it at the last second, saying that it should only be used as a last resort and claimed "they still didn't know what they have and should only use it if we have to". Morgan reluctantly agreed and led his troops into battle against the landing Visitor armies and defended the major cities; and was soon overwhelmed by the Visitors advanced technology and vast numbers, and was astounded when the Visitors weren't dying in Red Dust-protected areas below the frost temperature line. Morgan went to Bates again, insisting that more of the Red Dust be shipped to areas confirmed to be no longer protected. Bates said it was impossible and showed him the file of Red Dust research (which included photographs of plant and animal life subjected to heavy Red Dust exposure, leading to mutation, sterility and death) and explained the hazards of usage of the Red Dust and that it couldn't be used again for fear of destroying all life on Earth. When Morgan learned that at least half of the world was still protected by the Red Dust and, with governments collapsing and civil order breaking down, Morgan made an extremely painful decision; withdraw all armed forces from areas no longer protected by the Red Dust and redeploy them along the borders of the areas that are protected; forming "The Free Zones", areas of the world that are still toxic to Visitor habitation. The Visitors couldn't breach their lines due to the Dust and order was partially restored. Morgan attended the peace treaty summit held by Bates, who had since formed a provisional government that controlled what's left of the civil and police forces in the un-protected areas and forced the Visitors to agree to let Los Angeles become an Open City. Morgan went on to oversee all security for the population and defense of "The Free Zones", one day planning to drive the Visitors from the Earth.

Juliet "Julie" Parrish was a fourth-year medical student and protege of Doctor Rudolph Metz and friend to Doctor Benjamin Taylor at the time of the First Invasion. She founded the Resistance in Los Angeles and created the cell-structure organisation method that would remain essential to the organisation's survival. She initially became despondent over leading the Resistance, as she was a scientist, not a soldier, but was comforted by Ruby Engels. She eventually got used to the role and kept fighting the Visitors and scoring a large victory when she personally exposed John on national television as reptilian in nature. She also struck up a romantic relationship with infamous Resistance fighter Mike Donovan after she was captured by Commander Diana and partially-converted. Sadly many of her friends, such as Benjamin and Ruby, died during the conflict. She delivered Robin Maxwell's hybrid babies and, when the largely-Sirian infant died, discovered the organism in its corpse that was the basis for the Red Dust toxin. Julie was part of the assault team on the Los Angeles Mothership, and successfully seized control of its command center. However, Diana was able to use her lingering conversion of Julie to stall her long enough to escape. With the self-destruct disabled and the Visitors unable to remain on Earth due to the Red Dust toxin now in the planet's atmosphere, Julie returned to Earth with the Mothership under Resistance control.

One year after Liberation Day, Julie is working for Science Frontiers; the corporation responsible for mass production of the Red Dust, and has ended her relationship with Mike because "she didn't have time for anything else". She was put in charge of research of the captured Mothership by Nathan Bates (who seemed to have developed a romantic attraction for her, but she did not reciprocate) She tried to access the secret area onboard the mothership but Diana had put a security code on it before she left in her fighter. When the Second Invasion began after Diana's escape, Julie joined the reformed Resistance movement, but served in a lesser capacity, as she had to retain her position at Science Frontiers to throw off suspicion. Her place as leader was succeeded by Mike Donovan. She initially served as the Resistance's mole at Science Frontiers; smuggling information to the group and accessing the company's highly advanced technology to their advantage. Eventually, Mr. Chiang, the head of Science Frontiers security, exposed her as a spy and Julie was forced to flee. Despite being forced underground, she nonetheless served as an important member, and served as the coordinator and organizer for many Resistance operations across the United States. Julie was not killed by Lieutenant James and Diana, because James and Diana were already placed under arrest by Phillip.

Robert even made Arch his second daughter, Polly's, godfather. When the First Invasion began, Arch privately investigated the Visitor's true nature using scarcely found evidence, keeping it all together in a folder marked "John" (after the Visitors Supreme Commander). After carefully examining several photos of John, he concluded several disturbing discrepancies that Robert might have found "interesting", but feared he'd call it "crazy", but called him nonetheless, but he wasn't in. What Arch found was that the Visitor's skull was misshapen and the bone was too thick in several areas; mainly the head. Planning to have the photos further examined with more powerful equipment the next morning, Arch left the folder in his "Current Files" tray and left out the back of the building to the campus parking area. After entering his car, he looked back in preparation to reverse out and saw a Visitor trooper sitting in the back, inches away from his face.

Benjamin Taylor was a medical doctor and oldest son of Caleb and brother to Elias. Ben helped the family to become more financially stable when he became a doctor, but didn't marry as he was too interested in studying medicine and too dedicated to the Hippocratic oath to not take advantage of women he took care of. Caleb regularly considered Ben's practise a more worthwhile job and constantly nagged Elias to become something more worthwhile than a black market dealer. However, this enraged Elias, who liked his life the way it was, and this led to a severe conflict between him and Ben. This conflict lasted for 10 years, while Elias was steadily distancing himself from the family and Ben became part of Doctor Rudolph Metz's staff and became a good friend of Doctor Julie Parrish.

When the Visitors arrived on Earth, Ben and his colleagues were all eager to learn the secrets behind Visitor physiology, but never got an opportunity to study them in detail. Meanwhile, ominous changes appeared in society, such as a sudden wave of ostracization against scientists, and the growing influence the Visitors had over the government and local authorities. This concerned Ben to the point where he joined Julie's new-found L.A. Resistance Cell, a group dedicated to fight the Visitors. Ben tried desperately to get Elias to help the group, as he had many useful contacts in the black market and could get the Resistance badly needed materials and supplies. Elias however refused, as their conflict was still strong.

Ben, Julie and former-Officer Brad McIntyre raided Stamos Pharmaceutical Company for lab equipment for their new headquarters. Just as they were poised to escape, the Visitors guards saw through Ben's act and began chasing him, separating him from the others. He ended up running down an abandoned multi-story car park and, when trapped by a Visitors shocktrooper, was shot by his laser rifle and knocked off the three-story ledge and landed in a pile of garbage below. Julie narrowly rescued him and got him too Elias, but, due to severe internal injuries he suffered in the fall and unable to call an ambulance without alerting the police, died of his injuries in the car several minutes later. The shock of his death finally led Elias to snap out of his juvenile attitude and he cried, cradling Ben's body in his arms.

After Ben's funeral, Caleb and Elias joined up with the Resistance to fight in his name, and the conflict turned Elias into the responsible adult Ben always wanted him to become.

Elias Taylor was the youngest son of Caleb Taylor and juvenile brother of Benjamin and an influential member of the black market and a petty thief and criminal. He was in constant conflict with Ben as Caleb constantly compared the two and found Benjamin better, leading to an estrangement that lasted for 10 years. Elias was asked by a desperate Benjamin to aid the newly-founded Resistance with materials and weapons that Elias could secure, but he refused. Elias finally became a man when he was devastated by the loss of Benjamin when he died of injuries inflicted by the Visitors.

Elias and Caleb then became active members of the Resistance, and although he still resorted to using criminal practises to achieve objectives, he still remained conscious of what he was doing and remained loyal to the cause. He vouched for the use of the Red Dust despite the threat of nuclear annihilation by the Visitors, saying that they were the only chance the Earth had. Caleb was touched by his deep belief in the cause and reconciled with him. Elias was part of the Resistance assault team that stormed the Visitor Mothership in orbit above Los Angeles and helped secure the command center and bring the ship back to Earth in Resistance hands.

Having obtained "Hero of the Resistance" status and gained a widely-respected reputation with the population shortly after the war's end, Elias decided to leave his criminal past behind and go into the restaurant business. He bought a broken-down restaurant in Los Angeles, and brought back its former glory and made it into a high-successful business, which he named Club Creole, with Willie as its bartender, and then began expanding his blooming business to encompass marketing and entertainment products, making him fabulously rich. One year after Liberation Day, when the Visitors launched the Second Invasion, Elias feared for his business's safety, but nonetheless provided support for the Resistance by allowing them to use the club's hidden Prohibition-era bordello, providing a perfect hideout from the Visitors and headquarters for the movement. Elias himself remained with the group, often going on missions with the team, while maintaining his public facade as a neutral propierter for both humans and Visitors in the new "Open City". Though his restaurant is ultimately destroyed by Science Frontiers security personnel for being a Resistance hotbed of activity and forces Elias underground, he kept doing his part for the cause with unwavering loyalty.

When Caniff Printing, a newspaper shop loyal to the Resistance and publishing an underground newspaper, was seized by Science Frontiers security personnel and 6 Resistance agents, including Robin Maxwell, captured, Mike Donovan sent teams of two all over the city in an effort to locate the hostages. Elias and Willie were the ones who found the hostages, trapped in the shop. Willie initially wanted to leave back to the hideout to warn the others, but Elias wanted to know what the mysterious new platform was outside the shop and crept closer. Unfortunately, this was actually the platform for a Visitor disintegrator ray and, when the Visitors spotted Elias, turned the weapon on him and fired. Elias was vaporized.

When Mike was about to lead an attack on the shop to free the hostages, he gave a speech about Elias Taylor; their fallen hero;

"Now Elias is gone, but it's up to us to do something about it. Now we know he wasn't perfect, he took advantage of what we went through to set himself up. Flashy restaurant, the whole nine yards. But when it counted, when the Visitors returned, the truth was he cared too much to turn his back on us. He took us in, he gave us a place to stay and he paid for it with his life. And if you think about it, we're all together right now because of him. I'd say we owe him one."

Family Un-named Wife & Daughter (deceased)
Ham Tyler (or better known in the Resistance as "The Fixer") was a CIA operative who, along with associate; Chris Farber, went on specially requested missions for the U.S. government into other countries. While on a mission in Vietnam during the Vietnam War, Ham married a eurasian woman and had a daughter with her. His superiors promised that his family would be evacuated during the mission. But while he and Farber were sent to their target, a bombing raid caused his family's disappearance (and most likely deaths) and he never saw them again. Ham was devastated by the loss of his family and he and Farber left the agency, becoming mercenaries-for-hire.

During the First Invasion, he and Farber, join the Resistance and helped get the fledgling Los Angeles Resistance group off the ground and use proper tactics and use better weaponry. Here he forms a rivalry with Resistance leader Mike Donovan that eventually comes to a head when they disagree about when to distribute the newly-made Red Dust toxin to other Resistance groups; his fighting style, strength and loyalty earned Ham's respect and gave him the nick-name "Gooder". Ham coordinated the world-wide dispersal of the Red Dust in conjunction with Mike's attack on the Mothership, leaving the Earth poisonous to Visitor habitation.

One year after Liberation Day, Ham has started a high-tech security agency and is hired by Nathan Bates for $500,000 to capture Diana and assist in interrogating her for Visitor technological information. This is a decision he comes to regret as this leads to Martin's death and Diana causing the Second Invasion of the Earth. Ham was disgusted by how Bates treated human life and deserts, rejoining the reformed Resistance. He continued his friendship with Donovan and became Kyle Bates's (Nathans son) mentor, giving him the nickname "Ace".

He fought for the Resistance time and again and departed with Farber to escort Robin Maxwell to Chicago. In the (unaired) series finale, Ham and Farber return to help Mike's Resistance group escape Visitor attack shuttles. Ham now currently works with the Resistance to find the "Anyx", an artifact that can defeat the Visitors, amidst the destruction the Visitors wrought during the Armistice, when the Visitors took advantage of the peace to wipe out the majority of In Liberation Day When Ham is at Science Frontiers Nathan looks to a Television Feed a sees a "File Footage" Photograph of the Alien Commander Diana, Nathan then asks Ham what would he do with Diana, which causes Ham to also look at the picture of Diana, he says to Tyler that he would use Diana for target practice and when Nathan was thinking about capturing her so that Diana could assist with this universal cure for cancer Ham says that Diana is a disease.

Andy was a student who lived in Alassan Valley with his parents and younger brother. When the Second Invasion began one year after Liberation Day, his family was captured by the Visitors, prompting him into joining the Resistance. He joined the "Wildcats" group, led by Tony Baker, which operated out of Widows Canyon, killing Visitors and doing whatever it took to survive. All this changed when the Visitors told him that his brother, who was still alive unlike his parents, had contracted diphtheria, a deadly disease that was spreading throughout the valley. Andy was desperate enough to save his brother that he reluctantly agreed to spy on the local Resistance groups in exchange for medical treatment and freedom for his brother. His main form of communication was with a transmitter disguised as a walkman.

When LA Resistance members Julie Parrish, Kyle Bates, Elizabeth Maxwell and Visitor Willie came to the region to offer medical support, Andy told Lieutenant James who was in the region and the Visitors were provoked into action and sabotaged the mission to recover badly needed medicine. Andy also alerted James to Mike Donovan's imminent arrival with another supply of the medicine, but was then exposed by Julie Parrish when she discovered his transmitter. His fellow Resistance members turned on him and tied him to a chair and forced the truth from him and abandoned him to go on the mission to get the supplies from Donovan at a local airstrip. Andy realised what a horrible mistake he made and, after breaking free of his restraints, drove off to join the battle and reached the airstrip just as the Resistance team was about to be overwhelmed by an armed Visitor convoy. Andy then deliberately crashed his car into the convoy, destroying it completely and killing himself in the process. Tony, forgiving his fallen comrade, spoke for the group just after his heroic demise;

"He may have made a mistake, but man, when we really needed him he was there."

His actions saved thousands of lives from the plague.
