SAMUEL GERARD, DEPUTY UNITED STATES MARSHAL (Tommy Lee Jones), in The Fugitive and U.S. Marshals, led a "warrant squad" in the Office of the United States Marshal's Service for the Northern District of Illinois. He worked out of an office in Chicago for United States Marshal Catherine Walsh, the officer-in-charge. In two celebrated fugitive cases, he earned a reputation for tenacity, forceful action when he felt the need--and a ferocious anger with any organization--be it large corporation or even an agency of the government--whose leaders thought they could work a miscarriage of justice and get away with it on his watch.

He proved that when chasing two celebrated fugitives: Richard Kimble, M.D., and former Agent Mark Sheridan of the Diplomatic Security Service. Each man turned out to be innocent of the particular murder(s) the relevant authorities had imputed to him. And each man had a secret to a scandal that shook some part of the American system to its core. And in each case, Samuel Gerard simply followed the evidence where it led. And he didn't give a fig whom he had to bring down, to deal justice and vindicate the innocent in those two cases--and protect the innocent on a wider scale.
