No.2 of ‘The Schizoid Man,’ so confident, so assured. He failed in one respect, in breaking No.6, but succeeded in stopping No.6 from escaping the village. But even though this man is very clever, why did he need to use passwords when it came to identifying No.6 and his twin No.12? After all both were wearing different blazers, No.6 his regular dark blazer, and No.6 a cream blazer! Also who did he become friends with Curtis in the first place? And was he aware of Curtis’s look-a-alike features to No.6 in a previous to their arrival in the village?
No.24-Alison betrayed No.6, although she wanted him to know that given a second chance she wouldn't do it again. Just when and how she befriended No.6 in the first place is unknown. she was either put up to it by No.2, either that or No.2 got the idea for the plan through observation of No.6's friendly help and quite obvious mental connection with No.24.
No.12 of Administration, assistant to No.2 during his term of office in The General. No.12 doesn't care for the Professor, the General, or Speedlearn. He helps No.6 by supplying him with the Professors lecture about the General on micro tape, two security pass discs, and the uniform of a Top-Hat official. He also tries to save the Professors life at the end, but dies in the attempt. Or did No.12 commit suicide by clinging onto the Professor, and thus making it look like he was trying to save the Professors life?
Did you know that Patrick McGoohan was offered the role of Simon Templer - the Saint, before Roger Moore? And did you know that Patrick McGoohan turned down that role of the Saint simply because of the car which was going to be used in the

Roland Walter Dutton, the Court Jester. For he is the man who the Prisoner thought would be the best person placed to say the things which needed to be said at The Prisoner's trial. Why? Because in the days of yesteryear when the Kings and Queens had their own personal Court Jester, it was the Jester who could get away with telling how things really were, political commentary against the King say, without any harm coming to the Jester, because the Jester does it through comedy. So perhaps the Prisoner had seen Roland Walter Dutton dressed in the costume of a Court Jester, and thought that Dutton as the Jester might just get away with saying the things which needed to be said!
