Jean Croce (ジャン Jan), an agent working in Section 2 of the Social Welfare Agency, is Enrica and Jose Croce's older brother and Rico's Handler. Jean is also the leader of the handlers and a trusted advisor to Director Lorenzo, the head of the department.
Jean’s childhood was strongly influenced by his grandfather, a hero of the Italian resistance movement in World War II. His father, a leading anti-terrorist prosecutor, wanted him to become a lawyer, but Jean wished to enroll in a military academy and then join the Army. His service with the Carabinieri, which includes both civilian and military work, may have been a compromise. Jean became engaged to Sophia Durante, a fellow Carabinieri soldier, who was later killed in the car bomb that also claimed his parents and sister. Determined on revenge, Jean joined Section 2 which also included his brother Jose.
Jean has fair skin, blond hair and blue eyes. He is often seen wearing a pair of dark sunglasses and leather gloves.
Whereas Jose shows affection and concern for Henrietta — treating her like the little sister he loved so much — Jean looks upon Rico as simply a tool for vengeance — a means to an end. Jean's desire for revenge defines his being: he lives only to kill terrorists of the Five Republics Faction and is not above torturing them either. Rescuing innocent hostages is the least of his problems as long as he can kill the terrorists who took them. Jean can occasionally be quite brutal towards Rico: leaving her with a bleeding lip after he got angry with her; and pushing her aside in frustration when, due to an error of judgement on his part and through no fault of hers, his enemy Giacomo Dante escaped, leaving a trail of death and destruction behind him.
