|In the first season, we are gradually introduced to the enigma that is Christopher Chance. He takes on bodyguard assignments and rescue missions, always helping those who can't help themselves. Working with him are Winston and Guerrero, who don't seem to like each other but get along because of their mutual friendship with Chance.|
Throughout the season, Chance gradually lets slip that he was once in love with a woman, Katherine Walters, and that she was his one true love. Typically, however, he guards his secret background with a pathological intensity, refusing to reveal his true name. The audience also finds out that Chance once worked for an organization that specialized in assassination, and that his former friend and partner were Baptiste. Some other organization was also involved, as they tried to hire Guerrero to betray Chance and obtain a file on Katherine Walters.
In the season finale, Chance's origins as a hitman who suffered a change of heart are revealed. When ordered to kill Katherine Walters, Chance turned against the man who raised him, Joubert (aka The Old Man), fell in love with Katherine Walters, and tried to save her. He failed, and has spent the time ever since trying to make up for his life of crime by protecting the innocent.
