The name he has taken here is COLE, since his given name doesn't translate to our language. That's understandable, since he is from a planet called Cirron 17, in the Migar Solar System, some hundred light years away.
Cole left his planet to track down over 200 hundred escaped prisoners…most specifically, RHEE, a hedonistic killer responsible for the slaying of Cole's beloved mate and their offspring. Immediately upon his arrival on this planet, Cole morphed into a human form...a form he saw on a billboard on the side of the highway.
Being from another planet has its advantages on Earth. Despite having a human body, Cole still has extraordinary abilities, and they go far beyond those of your average, or even above average, human. Being a stranger in a strange land has its drawbacks for Cole, however. Not only does Cole have physical challenges awaiting him, but he additionally has to deal with the fact that he is living on a planet that he knows virtually nothing about.
Every small facet of life that we take for granted is something he has to process and attempt to understand, and then act upon. Each and every experience is new for him, and this will test his intelligence, his sense of logic and occasionally, his patience.

MEL's looks are killer. She can't help it. It's part of her, and she's had to deal with it. Sometimes she rails against it, sometimes she's proud of it.
Her looks have gotten her into trouble, gotten her out of trouble, and gotten her into relationships with guys that she shouldn't have been in relationships with.
But, Mel has turned a corner in her life. She has stopped trying to save men. Now she just wants to save herself. She doesn't want or need any more complications; her life up to now has been nothing but a series of complications. Mel spends the majority of her time at the downtown bar she inherited from her Grandmother: "The Watchfire" - an establishment that's been around for over a hundred years. Because of its proximity to the criminal courts building, it used to be predominantly frequented by lawyers, law clerks, cops, and even a few judges. Since Mel inherited the place, she's tried to convert it to a much hipper, livelier spot that will attract a younger, sexier crowd, but sometimes it seems like it will always be just a "cop bar."
Amy Price-Francis: There is no doubt that this graduate of the National Theater School of Canada is going places. At the National Theater School of Canada, Amy performed on stage in a wide range of productions over the course of her tenure. They included Twelfth Night (Viola), Burn This (Anna), A Winters Tale (Hermione), California Boyz (Rain), and Transit of Venus (Celeste). After graduation, she began performing across the country, appearing in the Vancouver Playhouse/NAC co-production of The Coronation Voyage (Marguerite), the Montreal Young Company's productions After the Dance (Miss Potter) and Undiscovered Country (Genia), and the Pleides Theatre productions The Game of Love and Chance (Silvia) and The Triumph of Love (Phocion).
Shortly after graduating from the NTS, Amy landed her first television series leading role as Amy in Little Men, and since then has appeared in Soul Food, The Associates, Twice in a Lifetime, and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo.
During principal photography on TRACKER, Amy was full of praise for the series: "The script is great, witty, funny, yet still very human. The character I get to play is very contemporary, grounded, down to earth, but faces a lot of challenges. Really what turns me on most is the writing. It's so good. It makes it so much easier as an actor if it's all there. I just do my thing."
When Mel inherited the bar, she didn't realize that it came complete with a young and sexually-charged British bartender by the name of Jess. She can be
found nightly, slinging drinks, serving up "belly shots" and flaunting a pair of Frankie B python hip-huggers.
She comes to Chicago by way of London's West End, and she's brought with her a rich love of life, an "I'll try anything once" attitude and a predatory eye for unsuspecting males.
Leanne Wilson: British-born Leanne comes from a rich theatre background, and her resume for television is equally impressive. She was a series regular playing Candy Williams on the BBC program Doctors, and had stints on other popular British television series such as Risk (on Risk TV), Harry & Cosh (Two Hats Film & TV) and Renford Rejects (Nickelodeon).
Her many aforementioned theatre credits include Peter Pan (Wendy), The King & I (Eliza), Bugsy Malone (Blousey), Why Aren't We All Dancing? (Iris), Bugsy Malone (Lena), Carrots (Nobby), Blast Off and Oliver.
Geraint Wyn Davies
Zin is the ultimate villain: intelligent, manipulative, clever and ruthless. He is Cole's nemesis and the person responsible for the wormhole. Zin's men, however, the 218 fugitives on Train 805, owe their allegiance to him - he's the one
who got them out. They represent every kind of deviant behavior known to the Migar solar system. Acting as their 'Godfather', Zin develops them into a highly organized machine that infiltrates every strata of society. Only a select few know Zin's master plan on Earth. The rest act as foot soldiers, carrying out his orders.
Zin is from the planet Varda, which makes him a very dangerous foe. Vardians are known for their brilliance, and their cold heartedness. The upper crust of their race, which Zin is a part of, have developed the use of 90% of their brain, which not only makes them incredibly bright, but also allows them to utilize "hidden" skills unique to their race. Zin was a scientist specializing in deep space exploration. His primary interest, though, was less in exploration and more in exploitation of the resources and enslavement of the populace of the new civilizations he conquered. When the Migar Alliance became appalled by his goals, they became foes and Zin decided to try to bring them to their knees…
