What the CIA did to make Huck into…Huck…remains a mystery. A highly trained and highly damaged covert operative, the low-key and quietly brilliant Huck now swears his allegiance to Olivia Pope and will happily go very, very far to protect her or his colleagues at Olivia Pope and Associates. He’s a seasoned spy and a masterful hacker with an admitted tendency for extreme measures. But he’s trying really hard to be good.
