Indian father, English mother. Early 50s. Slim and tough – he’s seen it all. Suffers with stomach ulcers and high blood pressure from years of investigating murders for the homicide squad at the Met. More interested in solving crime than wearing the latest fashion.

Doesn't really have one. Lives alone. The Met is his life. Hasn’t taken a holiday for years. If his house burned down in a fire and he had to save one thing, it would probably be his Police ID Card.

Tough, resilient, stubborn. If Khan gets a scent of something criminal, he doesn't give up the chase until the perpetrator is in jail. He's known for having a sixth sense when it comes to sniffing out criminals. He's one of life's survivors.

He's got powers of detection like a sniffer dog. He's brave too – nothing scares him now. And his work ethic – he never stops until the job is done.

He doesn't look after himself. He's like a war horse, battered and bruised by a stressful lifestyle, and with no one at home to regulate him. But the horse is getting on now…

Investigating homicide is his life and it’s hard to relax after you’ve seen the things Khan's seen. But he watches old movies late at night – mostly Westerns. When he was a kid he dreamed of being a Sherriff.

Worked for over 30 years for the Metropolitan Police, CID. Has had relationships but never married – too busy. His main regret is that he didn't have children. But he’s a good uncle to his nieces and nephews. They've learned not to ask him about his day job and prefer to get him talking about cowboys.

Long, dark hair, usually worn up. Late 30s. Wears designer specs and expensive suits. The one the male agents all secretly admire and the one female agents want to look like when they're older.

Probably her eBook reader. She's an avid reader but her staff accommodation is modest and there’s no room for bookshelves.

Professional and knowledgeable. Firm and fair with agents. Only Bonati and Goode know that beneath the hard exterior lies a wicked sense of humour.

What Kim Vorzek doesn’t know about ghost hunting equipment is not worth knowing. If there’s any new gadget out there that agents need, she'll know about it – or she'll design it. Some agents call her 'Q' from the Bond series (but only behind her back).

She feels alone sometimes. Life inside the CRYPT can be lonely, especially for an attractive, intelligent, sassy girl like Kim Vorzek. She has a boyfriend – but she’s not heard wedding bells yet.

Reading – anything and everything. She could have taught lectured in English, but then she could have taught science too. When she’s not reading, she likes designing new ghost-hunting gadgets for Goode and his engineers to make.

She joined the CRYPT from Goode Technology PLC, where she was a senior researcher and programmer, working closely with Jason Goode on pioneering new gadgets that have become common place today. A real innovator.
