Frank Black

Born 12 July 1947 to Henry and Linda Black, Frank Black has a unique and disturbing ability which can take him inside the mind of a killer. His gift is also his curse. As an FBI agent specializing in hunting down serial killers, Black was one of the Bureau's most effective detectives. Yet his immersion into the vilest recesses of the human soul took him too close to the edge. A loving husband and father, Frank could no longer allow the shadow of evil come between him and his family. He left the FBI and settled in Seattle with his wife and young daughter. Frank however, couldn't leave the horror behind. As the millennium approaches, so will the ultimate battle between good and evil as foretold by ancient prophecies. Frank is recruited by the Millennium Group, an underground organization dedicated to battling the forces of darkness.

Frank Black appeared in 66 episodes of the Millennium TV Series.

Catherine Black

A devoted mother to Jordan (Brittany Tiplady), Catherine Black was also a clinical social worker who counselled crime victims. This profession compelled her to confront many of the same dark forces as Frank. Yet Catherine knew she must never show any fear, no matter how appalling the evil. For if she did, Frank would ignore his mission, and dedicate himself to protecting his family. Catherine was willing to sacrifice her own peace of mind - and in the end even her safety - for the safety of us all. She was infected with a deadly virus that is mysteriously connected to the Millennium Group. Offered a vaccine for the virus she refused, insisting it be used to protect her daughter instead.

Catherine Black appeared in 46 episodes of the Millennium TV Series.
