Affiliations: 14th Precinct
First Appearance: Nowhere Man, volume 01, book 01
Simon Whittaker is a hard-nosed captain with the 14th precinct. Despite making a promise to Jack Maguire’s mother to watch over her ambitious and wayward son, Whittaker has all but given up on Jack. But when Jack and his niece, Rose Yancey, stumble into a case involving weapons trafficking happening in the heart of New York, Whittaker uses the resources of the department to get to the bottom of it. This move puts him on a collision course with Homeland Security which had began running covert ops, a pilot program that would allow ID agents, high-tech soldiers, to operate openly on the streets of the city.
