Vampire Council Member: Jim Phelps aka Mr. Secretary
(Dilios Note: Not to be confused with the asshole)
Jim Phelps comes from a long line of Phelps, and is named after his grandfather. Born in England, he worked for the Special Operations Executive known as the SOE … nicknamed Department of Dirty Tricks.
Not happy with his role in the beginning workings of MI:5, he ended up in the United States working within the CIA, then building IMF (Impossible Mission Force). He ended up recruiting Ethan Hunt, not long after.
His skills were so valuable, that Lamont gave him a retirement option.
