| V or Vadik|
(suspected identity: Cyrus Quinton)
|Date of Birth|
|Occupation||Thief and murderer|
|Associations||The Third Power|
"He's very intelligent, and he believes in something. He believe so much that he'd do anything in its service, and that makes him more dangerous, because he's willing to sacrifice anything. . .Maybe that makes him insane. Although I imagine others in his organisation might consider him a hero."
-Police Detective Helena Frye
- For the trail of discovery, see Cyrus Quinton.
- It is believed that "V" stands for the roman numeral 5, as in Quint. Quinton.
- Should at all times be considered very very dangerous.
"He's in his mid-30s, with dark hair. He looks like a thousand other guys you might meet. As for the name, 'V'. Once I heard someone else - someone who's dead now - call him 'Vadik'. Like the shadow-wizard in the story. It's appropriate for him. And as for what you should do if you ever meet him: run. Just run."

- Violet put a wrench in that plan, by stealing it before he and his crew could do so.
- In charge of the 4-man mission, with codenames:
- Was directly responsible for Monica Grand's death.
- Was probably also responsible for the deaths of Bernardo Holyoke, Pietro Salk & Fran Mendling.
- Monica Grand knew him before the Theft.
- Claire Castille met him 3 times ever.
- Apparently he knew the entire theft crew, somehow, though they did not know each other.
- He had a day-job, at Hesh Records, which was a sort of cover.
- He also has a boss within the Third Power, "The Big-Boss".
PERPLEX CITY, SEASON TWO
- He appears to have organized some new shenanigans, involving Apolyton, BBC Radio 1, a Mr Khan, and a Mr. Paul Denchfield.
- Watch this space!
- An email address, cyrus532 at gmail dot com, was identified, but a man like Cyrus is not likely to use this for very long.
- Cyrus was first seen in person, fighting with Paul Denchfield, at the end of the Radio 1 Big Weekend Event.
