Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle)

When Flynn was still quite young his father was shot by an unknown assailant, it took many years for Flynn to identify the murderer, and discover the reasons behind it. He took clarinet lessons when he was young, and when he was nine years old he attended a book signing of Stephen Hawking where he began to argue with Hawking about the correctness of the central thesis of the book. By the time he was 31 years old Flynn had obtained 22 academic degrees (12 Bachelors, 6 Masters, and 4 PhDs), including four in Egyptology.

Flynn would have continued being an eternal student had one of his professors not kicked him out of college, insisting that he get some real-world experience. Flynn applied for a job as a librarian in New York. Unexpectedly, he was successful in his job interview and was recruited into an ancient order of librarians who have protected a range of historical and often magical items (such as the Ark of the Covenant) for centuries.

Flynn is, effectively, a polymath, highly intelligent and resourceful. His years of study have made his observation and deductive skills comparable with those of Sherlock Holmes. His ordinary skills (which didn't qualify him for the job) includes knowledge of the Dewey decimal system, the Library of Congress research paper orthodoxy, web searching, and the ability to set up an RSS feed. In route to his first mission, Flynn managed to decode the previously untranslated Language of the Birds in just over seven hours, a feat that no other Librarian (save one, who created the book) had been able to translate.

He is single and so his mother is constantly trying to set him up on dates.

Charlene (Jane Curtin)

A doleful library employee who interviews Flynn for the job of 'The Librarian'. Flynn was granted the job of Librarian when he was able to tell Charlene very specific things about her only a few minutes after their first meeting, based solely on his keen observation (among them, having mononucleosis, being divorced two months before, owning three cats, and breaking her nose as a child).

Charlene is rather bureaucratic, threatening to dock Flynn's pay should he break something and insisting that he must keep his receipts if he wishes to get refunded for his adventures. Charlene keeps a humorless facade when Flynn makes jokes. In her words, she doesn't "do funny."

Dean Devlin has speculated that Charlene had in her youth served as bodyguard to a Librarian as Nicole does now [ [ Dean Devlin Interview] ] , perhaps her Librarian was Judson.

Judson (Bob Newhart)

Judson is the head librarian, he had previously served in the role of 'The Librarian' and now acts as a mentor to those who take up the mantle. He thought very highly of the previous Librarian, Edward Wilde, and was saddened to hear of his death. He has a tattoo from the time he served in the Marines and is handy in a fight. He enjoys buying things on eBay and loves flying kites.

Margie Carsen (Olympia Dukakis)

Flynn’s mother, Margie is constantly worried about her son and encourages him to get a job, find a bride, and be happy. She likes to give surprise birthday parties and likes singing karaoke.

Introduced in "Quest for the Spear"

Edward Wilde (Kyle MacLachlan)

Edward Wilde was the preceding 'Librarian' before Flynn, and he was considered to be very good. He worked with Nicole for two years during which time she fell in love with him. During an adventure in the Antarctic involving the Serpent Brotherhood, Wilde had to build an igloo to shelter he and Nicole. He made it appear to Nicole that he had been killed by the Serpent Brotherhood, but in reality Edward staged his own death to ally himself with the Brotherhood in an effort to steal the Spear of Destiny and take control of the world.

Nicole Noone (Sonya Walger)

Nicole is an adventurer who works for the library, and usually serves as the brawn to the Librarian's brains. She is the youngest of three siblings and the only girl. Her mother is English, and her father is South American (Argentine), but she never bothered to learn Spanish. She never had any pets, and her favorite stone is jade. She is fearless, loves adventure, and is an excellent fighter. She developed feelings for the previous Librarian, Edward Wilde, and felt an overwhelming sense of guilt when he was apparently killed. Judson told Flynn to "trust no one", a pun of Nicole's surname Noone.

Introduced in "Return to King Solomon's Mines"

"Uncle" Jerry (Robert Foxworth)

Jerry was a close friend of Flynn's father who him met in 1967, and knew both of Flynn's parents when they met and began courting. Jerry is wealthy and runs a global import-export business. In the course of an adventure to discover King Solomon's Mines Flynn discovers that Jerry had only befriended Flynn's dad to locate the Mines, and wants to use their power to turn back time so he can fulfill what he thinks was his destiny to win Margie Carsen, who he feels was stolen from him. It also turns out Jerry was the unknown figure who shot Flynn's father, after Carsen refused to tell Jerry about the mines.

Emily Davenport (Gabrielle Anwar)

Emily is an archaeologist who holds twenty five degrees, three more than Flynn, and can argue convincingly about ancient history, Biblical texts, and geography. Emily teams up with Flynn to search for King Solomon's Mines.

Introduced in "Curse of the Judas Chalice"

Professor Lazlo (Bruce Davison)

An elderly, crippled man who is a brilliant professor at the University of Bucharest. Seemingly harmless, he is taken hostage by the villainous Kubichek, who wants Lazlo to lead him to the Judas Chalice.

imone Renoir (Stana Katic)

A gorgeous young New Orleans jazz-club singer, who uses her hypnotic performances to charm an off-guard Flynn. Turned into a vampire by the infamous Vlad Dracul 400 years ago, Simone has been on a lifelong hunt to find the man who condemned her soul to walk the night forever. She teams up with Flynn to outwit those hoping to find the chalice and use it for their evil agenda. [ [ Wyle Returns For Librarian 3] ]
