After two years of intensive training, she is given a new identity and a codename -- Josephine. Nikita has been groomed to be a cold-blooded killer. But her humanitysometimes gets in the way. She never does quite fit in, but her rebellious attitude is tolerated because she gets the job done. Her love for Michael sees her through some rough spots. Midway through the series, Nikita begins to suspect that she was framed for the policeman's murder and brought to Section for a reason.

"Third Party Ripoff"
The head of Section One. His real name is Paul Wolfe, and he's perfect for the job -- as ruthless as the terrorists he seeks to destroy. Operations is usually quite willing to sacrifice his operatives if the success of a mission lies in the balance. He's been known to sacrifice a few innocents, as well, if it means saving hundreds of lives that would otherwise be lost to terrorist acts. He'll even manipulate his ex-wife to bring down her new husband, a man with ties to the wrong kind of people. His son Stephen is one of his soft spots -- and he wreaks terrible vengeance when Stephen is killed. He has one other weakness -- his fondness for Madeline, Section's chief strategist and the only person Operations really trusts. According to some, Operations is using Section to slake his thirst for power. Operations dies trying to save Michael's son Adam from The Collective in Season 5. Played by Eugene Robert Glazer.
