Number One is the former, deceased head of G.L.O.V.E. Little is known about his true identity apart from the fact that he is a man. Number One himself only appeared once in the books, which was in a G.L.O.V.E. research facility in China, where he apparently destroyed Overlord with an EMP. However, in Escape Velocity, it is revealed that, in the aforementioned research facility, Overlord implanted a seed of his own consciousness in the man's mind and gradually took over Number One's body. Number One's real name is not known.
In Rogue, it is revealed that he created a clone of himself with a computer implanted in his brain.
