Roger (Race) Bannon
Roger T. "Race" Bannon is a special agent, bodyguard, and pilot from Intelligence One. After Dr. Quest's wife died, the government hired Race to protect Dr. Quest's son, Jonny. Governmental fears that Jonny could "fall into the wrong hands" resulted in Bannon's assignment to guard and tutor Jonny.
Race is known for his charming wit, his white hair, and his button-flap red shirt. Race is not only the bodyguard for Jonny, but he also serves as tutor and care-giver. Race is also responsible with the care of Jonny's adopted brother, Hadji. It is thought that Race had a bit of a checkered past due to his romantic involvement with a woman known as Jade.
The character was voiced by Mike Road, with his design modeled on actor Jeff Chandler. The name is a combination of Race Dunhill and Stretch Bannon from an earlier Doug Wildey comic strip. The surname Bannon is Irish (from 'O'Banain') meaning "white".
