Mr. Palfrey is a gentle soul who looks very unassuming to most who see him. He is a quiet middle-aged man who wears glasses and doesn't stir up much of a ruckus. However, it turns out that he is a spy. His approach to the business is unusual, however, because there is not a lot of action involved, especially if he has anything to say about it. He does have an assistant named Blair who is more than happy to dive into action scenarios, and this creates some tension, but they have a good balance between the two of them.
