01 Ambassadors [The Second Renaissance]
After the establishment of the machine civilization 01, two ambassadors were sent to the United Nations. They were rejected entry. After the war turned in favor to the machines, a new insectoid ambassador spoke at the United Nations. He had them sign over the human race to the machines, then detonated himself to destroy the world leaders.
"Your flesh is a relic, a mere vessel. Hand over your flesh and a new world awaits you. We demand it."
Agent Brown [The Matrix]
Brown is a part of the agent trio that included Smith and Jones. Brown chases Trinity across the rooftops during her escape from the Heart 'O the City Hotel. He was presumably deleted when the batch of upgraded agents was created.
"Perhaps we're asking the wrong questions."
Jackson is one of the upgraded agents along with Johnson and Thompson designed to replace Brown, Smith, and Jones after their failures. Agent Jackson fires at Trinity after she fights with Agent Thompson.
"She means nothing."
Johnson is one of the upgraded agents along with Jackson and Thompson designed to replace Brown, Smith, and Jones after their failures. Johnson appears to be the leader of the new batch. He and Morpheus fight on top of a truck when the agents attempt to delete the Keymaker.
"You are no longer necessary."
Agent Jones [The Matrix]
Jones is a part of the agent trio that included Smith and Brown. Jones and Neo have a gun battle on the roof of a building which ended with Trinity surprising Jones and shooting him in the back of the head. He was presumably deleted when the batch of upgraded agents was created.
The leader of the trio of agents that include Brown and Jones, Smith has a hatred for human life and sees the human race as a virus. Smith makes a deal with Cypher in order to get to Morpheus. After Morpheus is in his custody, he attempts to get codes to the Zion Mainframe, hoping that the destruction of Zion would mean that he would no longer have to be a part of the Matrix. Smith kills Neo after his rescue of Morpheus, but Neo rises again as the One and destroys Smith. He is then supposed to return to the source to be deleted, but in a phenomenon resulting from Neo's jump into Smith's body having something to do with their code getting mixed, Smith no longer felt the need to obey orders. He now multiplies as a virus, taking over more and more hosts inside the Matrix, with one purpose in mind: To destroy Neo. One of his host bodies was that of the rebel Bane, who he sent back into the real world with Smith's mind. Smith continues to spread throughout the Matrix until it is his world, taking over such programs as Seraph, Sati, and the Oracle. With the Oracle taken over, Smith gains the sight. Neo faces off with Smith, fighting only one- the Smith who claims he has foreseen beating Neo. Just when Smith thinks he has beaten Neo, Neo keeps getting back up for more. Neo finally chooses to give himself up. He lets Smith take him over. With the equation balanced out, the program Smith is able to be deleted.
"The purpose of life is to end."
Thompson is one of the upgraded agents along with Jackson and Johnson designed to replace Brown, Smith, and Jones after their failures. Agent Thompson is the agent that encounters Smith during the Burly Brawl and is temporarily turned into another Smith. He jumps out of a window while shooting out Trinity. They have a gun battle until Thompson shoots her in the heart.
"The exile is the primary target."

A member of a small band of rebels who function independently from Zion, Alexa lures machines to their outpost on the surface in order to be captured and converted to the side of man. She leads a group of Runners to their camp, not knowing that one had placed a beacon outside of the base that sentinels and other robots could pick up on. One of the Runners is successfully converted within their dream world program and displays an attraction towards Alexa. After the sentinels arrive and slaughtere the rebels, the Runner places Alexa back in the dreamscape with itself, where she dies of shock.
"Make them believe that the right choice is the one we want them to make."
Apoc [The Matrix]
A member of the Nebuchadnezzar crew, Apoc serves as a driver and gunner. He gives Neo a gun after his visit to the Oracle. Apoc had his head jack removed while still connected to the Matrix when Cypher betrayed them, causing him to die.
"I hope the Oracle gave you some good news."
The designer of the Matrix, the Architect resides in a room made up of television screens. When the path of the current One leads to the Architect, the Architect presents them with a choice; choose to enter the source and allow the Matrix to be reloaded while picking 23 people to restart Zion with so the cycle continues, or returning to the Matrix and allowing the system to continue to break down to the lack of the One's code being reinserted, eventually leading to a system crash that kills everyone in the Matrix while the sentinels kill everyone in Zion. Simplified, the choice is to allow the cycle to continue or to allow the human race to face extinction. Neo takes his chances with extinction in order to return to the Matrix and save Trinity's life, and thus breaks the cycle that has continued for some time.
"The Matrix is older than you know. I prefer counting from the emergence of one integral anomaly to the emergence of the next, in which case this is the 6th version."
Ash [Detective Story]
Ash is a detective on the brink of calling it quits when the agents hire him to get to Trinity. He ix successful in tracking her down on a train, but discovere that she was also testing him.

In order to prevent his death, 66 crushed the head of his owner Gerrard E. Krause and stomped on his puppies, as well as shoving a toilet scrubber down the throat of Martin Koots, an employee of ReTool and Die who was their to pick up 66. Clarence Drummond unsuccessfully defended 66 in court. NOTE: 66's bio image is of another B1 model robot.

Baby is a tarsier monkey with a head jack owned by the band of rebels on the surface. He serves as an organic means of using night vision with his large eyes able to spot oncoming machines. He is killed in the assault of the sentinels on the base.
Ballard is the captain of the Caduceus, a ship in the Zion fleet. When the captains have a meeting in the sewers, Morpheus asks for one ship to remain behind so the Oracle could contact them. Ballard agrees to do this. The oracle eventually does contact him and sends him back with some data for Neo. Ballard returns to Zion not knowing that his crew member Bane has been infected with Smith during their escape from the Matrix. Ballard gives a disk to Neo that presumably told him how he could contact the Oracle. Bane later kills the entire crew of the Caduceus so he can foil the counter attack against the machines with an EMP blast.
"Shut your hole, Bane, before I put you in one!"
Bane is a rebel onboard the Caduceus. Their crew stays behind to contact the Oracle after the sewer meeting, but during their return he and Malachi have an encounter with the Smiths. Malachi leaves with the disk from the oracle, but Bane is taken over by Smith. Bane's real world body is now inhabited by Smith. He attempts to kill Neo once but is foiled by the Kid, who ruins his element of surprise. Bane later tries to volunteer the Caduceus to be one of the ships to search out the Nebuchadnezzar, but Ballard doesn't allow it. Bane decides to foil the counter attack against the sentinels instead. He kills the crew of the Caduceus and activates an EMP before the ships are in position, knocking out four other ships and allowing the sentinels to slaughter the crews. He is the only survivor and is picked up by the Mjonir (the Hammer) in an unconscious state. By this time, Bane has slashed up his palm and arm. After waking up, Bane claims ignorance, saying that he doesn't remember anything. When Maggie tries to give him a relaxant to remember, Bane kills her with a scalpel. He then sneaks aboard the Logos and confronts Trinity and Neo. Neo and Bane get into a fight over a plasma rifle, damaging some wires on the ship as the rifle spews electric blasts. Bane grabs one of the sparking wires and burns Neo's eyes out with it. Thinking Neo is blind, Bane swings a pole at him. Able to see via his connection with the source, Neo ducts and then takes down Bane. Neo bashes Bane's head in with the pole.

Cain and Abel
These thugs are two of the Merovingian's henchmen who are used to perform dirty work. They are from an older version of the Matrix and resemble creatures from Vampire and Werewolf myths due to their resilience to death by anything other than a silver bullet. They want to use the key designated for the One for their own purposes. They leave the Keymaker's prison door unlocked and follow him into the hallway of doors, where they steal the key made for the One at gunpoint. Abel gets cold-footed and tells the Merovingian that they have the key, who destroyes it. Persephone later leads Neo and the gang into a room where Cain and Abel are watching a Vampire movie. Persephone shoots Abel in the head with a silver bullet and allows Cain to run to the Merovingian to tell him what she has done.

A representative at the machine city (01?), Deus Ex Machina is a floating spiny machine able to form a human face for itself by unleashing a swarm of tiny machines. Deus Ex Machina realizes that the machines are unable to stop Smith, who may spread into the machine world, so it allows Neo to try and stop Smith in exchange for peace. Once Neo and Smith combine and balance out the equation, the Deus Ex Machina (presumably) pumps energy into Neo, deleting the program. Afterwards, the Deus Ex Machina has Neo's body carted off.
"We don't need you! We need nothing!"

He was once with Captain Niobe, but he was consumed by the prophecy and they split up. Morpheus essentially sacrifices himself for Neo by fighting Agent Smith to give the crew time to escape. After being taken prisoner, he resists the efforts of Smith and the agents and refuses to give the codes to Zion's mainframe. Once Morpheus is rescued and he sees Neo begin to display his powers, he believes the war will come to a close soon. When the prophecy is fulfilled and Neo reaches the source but the war doesn't end, Morpheus is crushed. He is now dispirited and shipless, but his faith in Neo prevails. He helps Niobe pilot the Mjolnir (hammer) through the mechanical line into Zion, and afterwards they become a couple again.

Neo AKA Thomas A. Anderson
Once an employee of Metacortex by day who sold illegal software by night, Neo scoured the internet for the illusive Morpheus. Morpheus eventually found him and showed him the real world, adding him to the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar. Although Morpheus believed he would be the One to fulfill the prophecy, Neo doesn't realize his own abilities until after getting gunned down by Agent Smith. Trinity's love for him brings him back in that her kiss makes him realize he was only dead within a simulation. After that, he views the Matrix in code and starts to reach beyond the tip of the iceberg of his power, including the new ability of flight and stopping bullets midair. After reaching the Architect, Neo learns that he was not meant to fulfill any prophecies. He is an anomaly of the system, the result of an unbalanced equation the machines are forced to implement in order to get the maximum amount of individuals to accept the system. The prophecy in itself is just a device used for control. Neo breaks the cycle that the machines had created to keep the Matrix running so he could rescue Trinity. He manually restarts her heart after removing the bullet put into her by Agent Thompson. After the return to the real world, Neo senses the sentinels and is able to stop them with powers similar to what he uses in the Matrix. The new use of these powers sends Neo into an unconscious state, with his mind stuck in the limbo zone of Mobil Avenue.
