Another field agent from the Undisclosed Government Agency, Agent #18 first appears as during the build-up to the Battle of Manhattan in Surreptitious Machinations. He is a gruff, no-nonsense, by-the-book agent who always wears dark sunglasses, never cracks a smile, and whose sense of humor is primarily limited to sarcasm and an incredibly dry wit. Despite his abrasive personality, he is one of the U.G.A.'s most decorated and valuable agents, as his low agent number seems to attest. His true name is currently unknown, as is virtually everything about his past.
Agent #18 led the charge to drive C.R.U.D.E. from the Statue of Liberty during the Battle of Manhattan (see Surreptitious Machinations, Chapter 8: Wars and Confrontations). In its aftermath, while Fooker and Agent #12 were tracking down Doctor Nefarious and Doctor Not it was #18 who was in charge of apprehending Trudy, chasing her as she tried to make new alliances, tracking her interactions with certain impressionable hackers, and eventually facing her one on one. Trudy ultimately was the victor in that fight, and it is apparent during their later meetings that he definitely holds a grudge.
During To Thine Own Self..., #18 joined other U.G.A. agents in accompanying Fooker and his friends to the alternate universe of Emperor Nicholas the Puissant to rescue Nick from his alter ego's clutches. #18 joined the team in infiltrating the Emperor's palace and was instrumental in defending the group as they made their escape home. We may have briefly come in contact with his alternate counterpart, although it is uncertain whether the two are the "same" person.
When Nick and Trudy are sent by Dwayne on a business trip that will last about a week to meet with Lakatos Pharmaceuticals, their adventure results in the pair being caught in a terrible car wreck and being sent to the hospital. Not long after their arrival, Agent #18 also arrives to investigate the events. The sudden destruction of the Lakatos resort is strongly suspect, and with Nick and Trudy being the only living witnesses their protection quickly becomes his top priority. During a brief phone call to Fooker, he reveals that Lakatos is at the center of a plot that is "bigger than anyone can imagine" and that Fooker's friends, as well as himself, are "as good as dead". He issues a similar warning to Trudy before being apprehended by the local authorities. The police sergeant in charge doubts Agent #18's "FBI credentials" and suspects he has come to the hospital to finish the job and assassinate Nick and Trudy. However, when the sergeant has Agent #18 locked in a supply closet, the agent quickly discovers the sergeant has ulterior motives. Agent #18 is quickly taken over by a mysterious unknown force. Now under alien control, Agent #18 has returned to the U.G.A... with unknown hidden objectives.

Some Faulties repeatedly confuse Fooker's brother Justin for Agent #18 and vice versa. This is probably due to their similar hair styles and the fact that they both tend to wear glasses. To tell them apart, Justin's face is round like Fooker's, as are his glasses. Agent #18's face is more rectangular and his sunglasses are trapezoidal. The easiest distinction to identify is the sunglasses; #18 tends to wear them regardless of the ambient light level, and we have never seen him without them.
