Jack Bauer

Jack Bauer (born February 18, 1966) was a retired American serviceman and a federal agent, who was responsible for saving multiple American citizens from potentially devastating terrorist attacks on more than one occasion.
He took a leadership role in various covert and undercover missions, and served as both Special Agent in Charge andDirector of Field Operations of CTU Los Angeles. His dedication to keeping U.S. citizens safe led him to make some deep personal sacrifices. Jack lost his job, his family, his friends, and, for a period of nearly two years after Day 5, his freedom. He showed his willingness to sacrifice his life on multiple occasions, but each time his sacrifice ultimately proved to be unnecessary.

Following Day 8, Jack was forced to flee the United States, wanted by both the U.S. and Russian governments for killing several Russian diplomats involved in a terrorist conspiracy. After four years spent living in hiding inEastern Europe, Jack resurfaced in London after receiving word of an assassination attempt against his former mentor, President James Heller and a possible prelude to a much more devastating attack. During the course of Day 9, Jack was given a full Presidential Pardon for the crimes he commited 4 years ago, on Day 8 and for any crimes he has committed in assisting President James Heller to attempt to stop the drone attacks by Margot Al-Harazi, finally freeing him of his fugitive status.
"We grew up together, Jack. In all those years, I could never make you do anything you didn't want to do."
