Vijay Patel is a young man from India, who works for top-secret American Teens Against Crime (ATAC), as a mission coordinator, and backup for field agents.

History

When Vijay was 12 years old he and his parents moved to the United States of America. He has always wanted to be a crime fighter, and as a boy solved mysteries in his neighborhood in Calcutta, India.[1]

Some time after moving to the States, Vijay started his work with ATAC, and has been training for about a year. The first field agents he met were Frank and Joe Hardy,[2] and according to Joe, Vijay has a bit of hero worship for them.[3]

Work with ATAC

Vijay has not gotten a chance at any undercover work yet, he currently works on the Intel side of ATAC. His jobs include coordinating agents' missions with the police, delivering mission briefings, and other general behind the scenes work, to keep things running smoothly.

When delivering missions he often uses the local Pizza place as a cover. Dressing in the parlor's uniform, and carrying the mission details in a pizza box.[4] He has also been known to pose as an employee of a coffee shop, called the Donut Hole,[5] and a librarian.[6]

Personality and traits

Vijay takes his job seriously but has a good sense of humor, and has been known to go so far as to pull pranks of ATAC field agents, notably Frank Hardy.[7]

Vijay is brave when he needs to be, once while on his way to deliver a mission he noticed something he considered worth looking into. On further investigation he discovered that Frank and Joe were being held prisoners in a bad section of Bayport. Throwing his safety to the wind, he managed to get in side the house, yet again using his pizza job as a cover. Unknown to the thugs the "pizza delivery boy" was armed and there to free their prisoners.[8]

Skills and abilities

  • Lying - Frank Hardy has noted that Vijay is skilled at lying, which comes in handy for Vijay, when his cover is challenged. More then once the Hardys have witnessed Vijay use these skills to his advantage.[9]
  • Technology - Vijay is knowledgeable with computers and other technology. As part of his training with ATAC, he took extensive computer hacking courses, and often helps field agents out when they need information from a protected online database.[10]
  • Firearms - Vijay knows how to handle a gun, and when the Hardys were in trouble used a gun hidden in a pizza box to turn the tables.[11]
