Nick Fury says at one point "He (Loki) has already converted two of my best men" but in the beginning of the movie it clearly shows Loki converted a third guy. Who was that guy?

The fact he was present in the room indicates (to me at least) he had to be a pretty high ranking security officer, but he's never named at all. Yet he does support/guide Loki when they run from the room when the Tesseract goes ballistic. And the fact he survived that (touching Loki) also must mean he's pretty important. I'm guessing security again, figuring he'd be in charge of safeguarding the base while Hawkeye is after the stuff for Selvig. But that is just speculation.

Was he just taking up screen time so it showed Loki busy with converting while Nick attempts to get away with the Tesseract?

    Obviously not one of Nick Fury's best men. – NominSim Sep 14 '12 at 13:11

    His name is "Peggy" Loki recruited him from a call center in Kazakhstan. – Chad Sep 14 '12 at 13:26

  • @Xantec what do you base that on? – silvith Sep 14 '12 at 14:41
  • @silvith I base it on standard operating procedure in Hollywood productions, however, it was merely meant as a joke. – Xantec Sep 14 '12 at 15:07

He was a security officer.

Loki probably had several reasons for turning him (3 that I can think of):

  1. Help in getting ou of the underground base without a fight or attracting unwanted attention.
  2. Help for Dr. Selvig & the other "recruits" working on the portal device (this makes more sense when you take into account that Loki planned on being captured and so would have to leave the task of building the device and stealing it's components up to people he'd turned).
  3. Turned people apparently retained all their knowledge, so he would have been an invaluable intelligence resource to help Loki with his plan.
  • I accepted this as answer because I suppose "a security officer" is indeed everything there is known about this character. – silvith Oct 9 '12 at 12:04
