Wallace Huntington is a character from the Cold War II series. He is the quartermaster for the European Intelligence Network and is one of three people to run the E.I.N in the series; In The Recruits, he is replaced by Anton Bang and in Agents of Tomorrow, his role is taken on board by the role of Miranda Chalmers.
He is a fifty five year old British man with fair skin, grayish hair and blue eyes and of the three people who leads the E.I.N in the Cold War II series, is the most formally dressed as he wears a navy blue three piece suit (which involves a shirt, tie, trousers, blazer and waistcoat) and a black and white spotted tie (Johnson and Young are also suited but they do not wear waistcoats).
Much like his associates, Graham Johnson and Noah Young, Wallace does not make many appearances so his personality is not well known. The only difference is that Johnson and Young appear in every story in the Cold War II series while Huntington appears three stories into the series; unlike Emma Irwin and Benjamin Simmons who disappear after The Defector, Huntington stays in the series.
Quartermasters in spy fiction are known for their undercover gadgets and Huntington is no different and he is also the one who provides Helga with her trademark pistol which sees first use in The Defector when she tries to use it to fight off a wolf pack.
The Cold War II series
Wallace makes his first appearance in the Scandinavian trilogy finale The Defector as one of the three people in charge of the E.I.N alongside Graham Johnson and Noah Young. In the story, his role is just as minor as his other story appearances and it is also in this story where he gives Helga her first gadgets and weapons.
The weapon he gives her is her trademark pistol which is a Heckler and Koch P7 while the main gadget he gives her is a fire extinguisher and while Helga is dubious as to why she needs a fire extinguisher in Scandinavia, it is revealed that the extinguisher helps her when she is confronted by a pack of brown bears.
He finally appears at the end of the story watching Johnson quietly yet furiously dismiss the Alliance hostages from the E.I.N and after calling Helga back in, Huntington is presumed to go back to his office.
In the story Enemy in Silence, Helga Blankenburg is sent to Wallace when she is sent to HMNB Portsmouth which she manages to survive, despite being assaulted by The Medusa. Despite Helga's belief that he would be in an office, like he always is, Wallace's presence at the naval base is determined by Johnson's deputy Noah Young.
His presence being determined by Noah standing by steps leading up to one of Britain's most famous warships: HMS Victory and the oldest ship still in service, having been in service since 1765; on the ship, Wallace is on board the captain's quarters where he gives Helga the last aspects of her mission including the way to destroy The Medusa and equipment to do it.
This equipment consists of a wetsuit, a full face diving mask (with a built in radio), breathing tanks and a midget submarine (which is actually housed beneath the ship because when Wallace arrived, the Navy were configuring the ship to accommodate the submarine). He also gives her a bomb to properly destroy the Medusa but warns that the bomb has a twelve second delay and unless she can get out of the way in that time, the explosion will kill her.
Finally, he wishes Helga luck as she proceeds to begin her mission to destroy the Medusa.
