This is a list of Authorities from the V science fiction franchise.

Known members of the police and military forces on Earth defending or aiding against the Visitor horde are detailed below.

U.S. President William "Wild Bill" Brent Morrow[edit]

William Morrow was the President of the United States and a former Air Force pilot who served in Vietnam. During the First Invasion, Morrow was kidnapped by the Visitors and was held prisoner on the New York Mothership for most of the war. During his captivity, Morrow was put through repeated sessions in the conversion chamber. However, agents of the Fifth Column helped him escape before he was totally converted and he aided the New York "White Christmas" group when attacking the Visitor's ground headquarters (though no-one knew his real identity as he simply went by the name of "Bill"), and helped rebuild the government after the Visitors were driven from the Earth by the Red Dust. One year after Liberation Day, Morrow and the rest of the government went underground to prevent being captured by the Visitors and now directs what's left of the U.S. Military to aid the Resistance, which has become the world's last line of defense.

Defense Secretary Farley "Moose" Mason[edit]

Farley Mason is the Secretary of Defense and an old friend of President Morrow, normally using his old nickname of "Wild Bill" and Morrow addressed him by his nickname of "Moose". Though he sometimes appears lax, lazy and doesn't take his job seriously, he takes his job to heart and knows when to be serious. When the First Invasion began, Morrow and Mason were captured by the Visitors and Mason was successfully converted. However, when the New York Mothership was captured by the Fifth Column and its population freed, Mason was freed from the effects of his brainwashing. When the Second Invasion began, he along with the rest of the government went underground to prevent being captured and converted again. Mason now commands what's left of the U.S. Military and is directing them to help the Resistance whenever he can.

General Curtis Morgan[edit]

Curtis Morgan is a high-ranking general in the U.S. Military and commands a large portion of the country's remaining ground and air defensive forces. When the Second Invasion began, Morgan was hoping to use the Red Dust on them, but Nathan Bates revealed the dangers of using it. Nevertheless, Morgan and Bates agreed to formulate a doomsday weapon of massive amounts of Red Dust linked to explosives, that would destroy all life on Earth, along with all the Visitor armies, should the war end in their favour and was named "Code: Delta". Morgan currently leads the military forces against the Visitors, but waits for the day when "Code: Delta" can be initiated.

General Loman[edit]

Loman was a general in the U.S. Military and loyally serves as Defense Secretary Mason's right-hand man during the First Invasion. Unlike Mason, who was converted, Loman retained his freedom and continued the fight against the Visitors until the Red Dust was deployed. He again joined the fight when the Second Invasion began one year after Liberation Day and now helps to lead what's left of the U.S. military against the Visitors.

Federal Agent Barnabas[edit]

Barnabas was a federal agent in the U.S. government. Just after the end of the First Invasion, Barnabas and two other federal agents attempted to free Diana under orders from "individuals" within the government who hoped to use her to learn about Visitor technology, but was stopped and arrested.

Stover was a federal agent in the U.S. government. Just after the end of the First Invasion, Stover and two other federal agents attempted to free Diana under orders from "individuals" within the government who hoped to use her to learn about Visitor technology, but was stopped and arrested.

Despite his low rank, Simon was very powerful and usurped the local governor and placed the entire state into martial law, as a stepping stone for Fletcher to take control of the country. However, the coup failed because of the Resistance and Simon was taken into custody by the Military Police.

Lieutenant Wallace[edit]

When the Visitor's power over the city grew, Sam steadily recognised that the police no longer controlled law and order, and defected to the newly made "White Christmas" Resistance group.
