Benjamin Miles "C-Note" Franklin Rockmond Dunbar. Benjamin Miles Franklin, genannt C-Note, sitzt acht Jahre Strafe ab. Er ist die sogenannte "Gefängnisapotheke".
Rockmond Dunbar ist ein amerikanischer Schauspieler. The character plays a prominent role in the last season. Not much is known about him but he is stated as a hardworking Homeland Security Agent who tries to bring down The Company but has yet to be successful.
He has worked for five years to bring down The Company with James Whistler and Aldo Burrows Michael and Lincoln's father , the latter has also tried to locate Scylla.
According to a background check made on the character by The Company in the episode "Five the Hard Way", Self studied law on Long Island, before spending the next 18 years moving around DOD and DOJ.
He began working for Homeland Security in Agent Self later told Mahone that he had a wife that died while giving birth - his unborn infant died too.
A picture of his wife is seen at his desk several times and he once played a message of her voice at his answering machine. Self's character plays the role of supervisor and ally to the team in the first half of the season, but later becomes an antagonist.
In "Scylla", he tasks Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield with the mission of bringing down The Company and finding "Scylla", a key card that stores a wealth of information about The Company.
He promises them full exoneration if the brothers can obtain Scylla and hand it over to the government. As Sucre , Mahone , Bellick , Sara , and Roland Glenn, a computer hijacker, come along with them, Self points out that if they do it there is no coming back and that he is their boss.
Most notably in "Shut Down" were Self, under pressure from his boss, reluctantly tries to cancel the mission after it is discovered that Scylla is six key cards, not just one.
Self agrees to let them find the rest of the Scylla cards after the team successfully identifies the other cardholders.
When General Krantz, the leader of The Company, discovers Self had images of him enhanced, Wyatt confronts Self and tells him that the General "likes his privacy.
He often threatens to kill those who oppose him, and in "Blow Out", after Mahone becomes a liability to the mission by getting arrested by the police, Self wants to have Mahone killed, something Michael refuses to do.
Instead the team rescue Mahone, without Self's assistance. In "The Legend" the team grows a dislike for Self when he seems unwilling to hold up his end of the deal and send Bellick's body home after he died in the previous episode.
However, in "Quiet Riot", he is actively supportive of the mission and seems to genuinely want to bring down The Company. Self's character shows his true colours in the episode "Selfless," where he apparently works with the team as they finally manage to recover the Scylla, but ultimately betrays both them and his government superiors by stealing the recovered Scylla and keeping it for himself.
His real character motivation is revealed to be finding a 'buyer' for Scylla, an apparently private interest. Realizing that the needs to find a new buyer after the first one is killed, Self murders his partner, federal agent Miriam Holtz, in cold blood in order to get to T-Bag, a prisoner she was guarding.
From this point onwards, the character begins to share a more active role in the plot by being out in the field and appearing in more action-oriented scenes.
In the next few episodes, he is an antagonist to Michael and the rest of the team. After faking his death and attempting to frame Michael's team for it in "Deal or No Deal", Self uses T-Bag to track down the family of Gretchen Morgan, a former Company operative that has gone rogue.
Self threatens the life of her daughter to gain her co-operation and the two characters share the same plotline for the next few episodes, as they use Gretchen's contacts to find another buyer for Scylla.
However, at the end of the episode, Self finds himself with a problem: the mistrust of Michael Scofield, who removed a part of the Scylla device.
While his apprehension of T-Bag led to Gretchen and a buyer, he cannot sell Scylla while it is incomplete. Thus, the episode ends with him ultimately demanding the missing part of Scylla from Michael, who instead suggests he "Come and get it".
In the next episode, "Just Business" Self seemingly makes a deal with Michael to sell Scylla together, while both parties are actually plotting against each other.
Self and Gretchen plants an x-ray device in the warehouse to try to find the missing piece of scylla while the team are planning to take the rest of Scylla back from Self.
In the end it is Self who is successful, as he and Gretchen obtains the missing piece and head out to meet Gretchen's contact, a conduit named Vikan.
Self's character is again shown to be ruthless when, after asking Vikan if the buyer of Scylla is coming, Self shoots Vikan and his bodyguards and tosses their corpse into the sea so that he does not have to share a cut of the money with them.
Self is next seen waiting with Gretchen for the Scylla buyer. After getting a call from Gretchen's sister, Rita, Gretchen tells Self that The Company has T-Bag and unfortunately he might have told The Company where they are.
So before Lincoln and Sucre could track them, Self and Gretchen destroy their cell phones and flee. They're next seen at a phone store and look injured with bloody scratches on their faces.
They buy a new phone and tell the store owner not to tell anyone they were there. They head to the warehouse to wait for the buyer.
The buyer arrives and Self and Gretchen hold the buyer at gunpoint. Gretchen forces Self to hand Scylla to the buyer or they will be in grave danger.
Self hands over Scylla. They hear noise and Self and Gretchen go to investigate, but are betrayed by the buyer when he points his gun at them and they run for cover and a shootout occurs.
The buyer shoots Self in the shoulder and flees with the money and Scylla. Later they are to work with Lincoln and T-Bag to recover Scylla.
Self's character plays a less prominent role in the season's final episodes, where he works with his new team to find Scylla and track down the new buyer, which turns out to be Lincoln and Michael's mother, Christina Rose Scofield.
When the team fails in their assignment, the general decides to punish them by ordering the death of one of their family members and singles out Self's wife, who is actually alive and in a persistent vegetative state due to Self's drunk and reckless behavior.
Self then escapes, but gets arrested at the hospital, where one of Christina's men injects him with a serum that gradually leaves him in the same state his wife was in.
He refuses to help federal agents with locating Burrows and Scofield because they failed at protecting him, and is left in his vegetative state for the rest of his life.
In his final appearance in the epilogue of the Series Finale, set four years after the events of the rest of the episode, Self is revealed to be living at a rest facility, using a wheelchair, mute and drooling.
Jacob Anton Ness played by Mark Feuerstein is an economics professor at University of Syracuse, and Sara's second husband and Mike's stepfather.
He and Sara were married sometime during the seven years after Michael's supposed death. In the season premiere, he is shot in the leg by someone supposedly sent to kill Sara and Mike due to Lincoln investigating Michael's death, and spends the next two episodes recovering in the hospital.
During this time, Sara finds out Michael is still alive under the name Kaniel Outis, and tells him. He tells her that Michael may have succumbed to madness due to the choices he made.
After being released, he, Sara and Mike lie low at his parents' lake house per Sara's choice, though he says the university has resources that can be used to find their attackers.
T-Bag eventually tracks the attackers to a meeting with him. Sara confronts him on this, and he claims he was paying them off to leave him alone, and later seems to prove this by having them arrested with a tracker in the money, forgiving Sara for her paranoia.
However, Michael later reveals him to be "Poseidon", a rogue CIA agent that he has been working for in exchange for exoneration of himself and others.
Michael also reveals that he murdered the CIA agent Michael's alias is accused of having murdered.
Sara returns to New York and tries to pretend she does not know, but he sees through this immediately, and captures her and Mike. Michael, Lincoln and their contacts try to catch him, and manage to track him to his lake house, but he seemingly turns the tables and has one of his subordinates ambush Michael and Mike, with Sara's fate unknown.
He is ultimately caught and incarcerated at Fox River, where he is attacked by T-Bag as retribution for Whip's death. Sheba played by Inbar Lavi is a woman who leads a resistance movement in Yemen, and C-Note's contact when he and Lincoln arrive.
She allows the two to visit Ogygia, and later helps them rescue a man who can help them facilitate Michael's escape, as well as his daughter and several schoolgirls, from ISIL.
She and Lincoln later attempt to get fake passports, but are captured, and she is nearly raped by a one-eyed man who had a crush on her in high school, but is saved by Lincoln.
She and C-Note bring the people they saved from ISIL to an airport and manage to get on board a small plane, but are forced to leave without Michael, Lincoln and their fellow escapees.
They make it to Jordan, and eventually back to the States, where she and C-Note regroup with Michael and Lincoln, and help them track down Poseidon and his subordinates to find Sara and Mike.
Eventually, when Michael figures out where they are, Lincoln kisses her and sends her back to take care of the others, claiming he could not forgive himself if something happened to her.
David "Whip" Martin played by Augustus Prew is introduced as Michael's cellmate in Ogygia in season 5. He is quickly revealed to know that Michael is not Kaniel Outis, and that he and Michael have been breaking people out of prisons around the world for years.
Michael repeatedly calls him his Michael's whip-hand, hence his nickname. He is loyal to Michael despite not knowing his real name, but as their time in Ogygia goes on and their escape plan doesn't seem to be working, he starts to become more paranoid that Michael will betray him, which only increases when Abu Ramal, the prisoner they are in Ogygia to break out, is released from solitary confinement.
Michael repeatedly tells him he will not leave him, but he continues to be frightened, even fighting Michael and forcing a guard to break them up though this is part of Michael's plan.
He confronts Michael during the escape, where Michael finally reveals his plan to leave Ramal behind, satisfying Whip. However, the escape fails, and he, Michael, Ramal and their cellmate Ja are thrown into solitary confinement, where he starts to become paranoid once again as ISIL strikes land closer to the prison.
After Michael convinces Ramal to help them escape, he and Ja are released from their cells when Michael gets the keys. They try to persuade Michael to leave Ramal behind, but Michael admits he is necessary.
Eventually the four escape the prison along with Sid, another inmate, and formulate a plan to double-cross Ramal, but he turns the tables on them.
Whip tells Ramal he was arrested for killing a man in a barfight, and when they are surprised by Lincoln, he takes the opportunity to kill Ramal, which ends up backfiring.
With ISIL hunting them, he continues to follow Michael, now knowing his real name, despite two of their plans for escape failing.
Eventually the group tries to escape across the desert to Phaecia, a small fishing village, and Whip kills several ISIL members following them.
He accompanies Michael and Lincoln to Crete, Greece , and expresses his admiration for an injured Michael. He then accompanies them on to a freighter, arranged by Sucre, back to the States.
When they are caught by NAVY Seals, he escapes with Michael, Lincoln and Sucre in a life raft, and is taken by fishing boat to France, from where Michael instead sends him to Chicago instead of New York.
During this time, it is revealed that his real name is David Martin, and that he was a survivor in prison, which is why Michael chose him as his partner and the cover story he told Ramal may have been why he was originally incarcerated.
In Chicago, he follows coordinates given by Michael to Lake Michigan, where he meets T-Bag. T-Bag reveals that he is in fact his father, which is the reason why he Michael made him his whip-hand.
Jonathan Krantz , or the " Pad Man " to fans played by Leon Russom , is the main antagonist in the series.
He is the leader of The Company and holds the rank of General. He appears only fleetingly in his first two seasons, as William Kim's shadowy superior and architect of Michael Scofield 's incarceration at Sona.
The character plays a large and important role in season 4, appearing in every episode although being credited as a guest star instead of being in the main credits.
In earlier seasons, he is identified by his tendency to issue orders on notepads, to avoid being recorded, a tendency which he fully abandons by the fourth season.
In his appearance in the fourth season premiere, he discovers that James Whistler, the man Michael was forced to break out of Sona, is a traitor. After Whistler's betrayal, he orders drastic measures to be taken against The Company's enemies, dispatching the ruthless assassin Wyatt to kill anyone and everyone necessary to achieve those ends.
Meanwhile, in the initial stages of his season 4 character arc, the General is not aware of Michael's teams' efforts to steal Scylla and most early episodes of the season deals with him planning a sinister operation in Laos, and interacting mostly with Wyatt and the Scylla Cardholders.
As the season unfolds, Michael and his team eventually learn of the General's identity and his place as the leader of The Company, and he gradually comes to the forefront of the plot with increased screen time with the protagonists as a consequence.
When it is reported that Agent Don Self did an identity search on the General, he seems to be very shocked and gives Wyatt the order to keep an eye on Self.
In "Safe and Sound", it is revealed to the viewers that the General's name is "Jonathan Krantz",  as seen from the images of him.
Learning that the General has one of the Scylla Cards, Michael's team plan an attack against his limo in "The Price". Due to the betrayal of team member Roland Glenn, the General is alerted and the attack is not successful.
Now knowing that Scylla is in danger, the General orders it to be moved and puts increasing pressure on Wyatt to kill the brothers.
He is tricked in the next episode into thinking that Wyatt has killed the brothers, but decides to go ahead with moving Scylla anyway.
He plays a large role in "Selfless", where he comes face to face with the Scylla team for the first time. When he goes to confront Michael in the underground bunker, he is forced to hand over his card by Michael's team at gunpoint.
Thinking it is useless without the other cards, he's shocked when Michael unlocks Scylla with copies of the other five cards and takes him hostage.
Under duress and the threat of his daughter Lisa's life, he allows the Scylla team to escape, only in the end realizing Michael has planned everything, including the getaway.
In the following episodes, the General is put under immense pressure as he must direct efforts to retrieve Scylla while dealing with dissent amongst his own ranks.
After learning in "Just Business" that Gretchen Morgan and Self has Scylla, he sends his men to retrieve it and eliminate all threats to The Company.
His men fail, but capture Michael instead. Discovering that he is in an unstable condition, he is taken back to Company HQ.
The General orders the doctors to look after Michael and keep him stable, and tells Lincoln that he can save Michael's life in exchange for the safe return of Scylla.
The last third of the fourth season shows the General trying to use leverage to control and motivate Lincoln and his team in their pursuit of Scylla, while instructing his men to kill Michael, who escapes from Company security after the surgery.
The General has a somewhat reduced role in these final episodes, often having only a couple of scenes per episode. This is in part due to the introduction of a new prominent antagonist, Christina Rose Scofield Michael and Lincoln's mother.
A former employee of The Company, Christina turns rogue and acquires Scylla to set her own master plan in motion.
This includes an assassination attempt against the General in "The Mother Lode" by one of the cardholders, who is working for Christina.
For a while, the viewers are led to believe that the General dies in the explosion that destroys his limo, but he is later revealed to still be alive if injured.
As a consequence, the General grows increasingly desperate and paranoid, demanding the lives of all involved in the attempt on his life and the identity of the one holding Scylla.
After he is informed that Christina is the buyer of Scylla, which Lincoln had neglected to tell him, the General travels to Miami with a number of henchmen to take charge himself.
The General's screen time again increases somewhat in these final episodes, setting up for the eventual resolution of his character arc.
Much of his screen time in these final episodes include him conspiring to get Scylla back, while also taking revenge on Christina, Michael and Lincoln.
To this end, he takes Sara hostage in "Cowboys and Indians" and forces Michael to hand over Scylla. He promises to let them all go, which he actually has no intention of doing.
Instead he states that he is planning a slow death for Michael and leaves Sara to be raped by T-Bag. In the last episode of the show, the General makes one last desperate attempt to get Scylla back, but is outwitted by Michael and the others and is left for the authorities.
Michael then successfully releases Scylla to both the United States government and the United Nations. It is revealed in the series epilogue set four years after the events of the finale that Krantz was tried possibly for treason and multiple counts of murder and sentenced to death via the electric chair.
In his final scene, the character is about to be executed. When asked if he is ready, he utters the last words " Semper Paratus ". Krantz also appears briefly in The Final Break a straight-to-DVD special set before the epilogue where he is incarcerated at Miami Dade Prison and orders a hit on Sara in a last attempt to get revenge on Michael, but fails since Sara escapes successfully with the help of Gretchen who gets left behind.
William Kim played by Reggie Lee is a fairly high-ranking member of The Company who acts as an intermediary between the President and Paul Kellerman.
He is introduced in the season 2 episode "Map ", and is the primary Company antagonist in the second season of the show.
Kim becomes Kellerman's new supervisor shortly after the Fox River Eight escape. Kellerman is dismayed by this, as he has directly reported to Reynolds for 15 years, and the two characters have an antagonistic relationship throughout the first half of the season.
Kim's character initially has a passive role, directing Kellerman's actions mainly through phone conversations. Throughout the season, Kim orders the deaths of all he perceives as a threat to the conspiracy, even including Governor Frank Tancredi , and orders Kellerman to murder Sara Tancredi as well.
However, when Kellerman fails, Kim cuts him off, disavowing any records relating him to the President.
In " The Killing Box ", Kellerman calls Kim with a plan to eliminate the recently recaptured Lincoln and Michael. Kim agrees but then instructs an operative to kill Kellerman.
This plot backfires when Kellerman betrays him. Kim's role grows larger and more active in the season's later episodes.
In the episode, " John Doe ", Kim learns of Kellerman's betrayal, and fails to protect Terrence Steadman as Kellerman and the brothers get their hands on him.
As Kellerman has now switched sides, Kim increasingly appears in scenes with Alexander Mahone , the leader of the FBI manhunt who is secretly under blackmail from The Company.
Kim puts pressure on him to murder the fugitives. Kim also attempts to manipulate Kellerman by using a female operative and voice-alteration equipment to give him the appearance that President Reynolds is willing to make amends, though Kellerman eventually sees through this ploy.
As the character's role grows bigger, he becomes the primary antagonist of the brothers in season 2, and Kim begins to share screen time with them, most notably in " Sweet Caroline " where he violently attacks Michael in an attempt to make him reveal Lincoln's whereabouts.
After the brothers escape to Panama, Kim is ordered by his superior, a mysterious man known in season 2 only as "Pad Man", to kill Lincoln and frame Michael for it, thus ensuring Michael's incarceration at the prison called Sona.
Although he hates being in the field, Kim personally travels to Panama in the season finale to complete The Company's plan. In the character's final appearance, he is shot and killed by Sara Tancredi just before he is about to kill Lincoln.
Caroline Reynolds played by Patricia Wettig is a recurring character introduced in the second episode of the series , and is eventually revealed to be the Vice President of the United States.
She is affiliated with The Company, and is portrayed as an ambitious politician who seeks to secure the presidency through any means necessary, including murder.
She was the main antagonist for the first season. Reynolds is at the center of the show's conspiracy plot in the first season, having framed Lincoln Burrows for her brother Terrence Steadman 's faked death.
She goes to great lengths to preserve this conspiracy. The character initially appears only sporadically, ordering her agents to kill anyone who interferes, and later announces her candidacy for President.
Her role eventually grows larger, focusing on her dealings with The Company, and her allegiance with her henchman Paul Kellerman.
It is shown in the episodes "Brother's Keeper" and "Go" that Kellerman is very affectionate and loyal to her, having served her for 15 years, though she does not share the extent of his feelings, instead using them to turn Kellerman into her devoted lackey.
