Percy is the head of Division, a secret organization that carries out the government dirty job (in highest secrecy, of course), mainly getting rid of (usually killing) foreign officials and heads of corporations that are perceived unfriendly, to Percy that is. Percy is also Division’s founder. Division is a fortress, as well protected as the White House; the building can withstand sustained bombings and even nuclear strikes. Percy only recruits individuals whose lives are over, those on death row, those about to be executed and those who’d spend their lives behind bars in high security prisons. Percy would fake their deaths, give them new identities and train them to serve their country; translation: to kill when asked to do so. Percy requires complete obedience and submission. He may be the smartest man (created) you’ll ever see on TV. He thinks of every possible scenario where he could be killed either by his people or other government operatives who may want him out of the picture. In one scene where he was placed in isolation within division, he managed to contact the people loyal to him through an inconceivable maneuver: he generously offers financial assistance to Alex who needed to go back to Russia to avenge her parents; Alex was given access to Percy’s account to withdraw the cash she needed. Imagine that! Brilliant, isn’t it? Percy cannot be killed because everyone’s secret – including the people in the government – would be revealed to the world, thanks to highly sophisticated “black boxes” that would broadcast everyone’s information if Percy’s heart stops. So, it’s in everyone’s interest to keep Percy alive.
