Head of Spectrum: White, Scarlet, Destiny Angel

Colonel White, head of Spectrum Organisation, operates usually from his Commander Desk. He assembles his officers Black, Blue, Brown, Green etc. to issue commands. Due to officer's names, it is obvious, that his name must be White and the organisation is named Spectrum.

The Mysterons plan to attack one of the world's major goverment centres. Spectrum announces the highest alarm level. Colonel White gives instructions to his officers using a 3D screen and depicts the major places to defend.

This are the persons the World trusts and hopes on: Colonel White not fighting in field but a great strategy person, Destiny Angel and her team arise with the interceptor in case of trouble and don't take prisoners, Captain Scarlet, White's best man.
