Alex Torres is an F.B.I. agent and the boss of Knight Industries. His focus is on the success of the mission, rather than the safety of the agents.
In Episode 101: Knight in Shining Armor, K.I.T.T. discovers that most of his records are classified. In a short scene with Charles Graiman at the end of the episode it is revealed that he is somehow linked to Mike's missing memories, and determined to keep Mike from remembering everything.
