Tony Almeida is a former agent of CTU Los Angeles.
Originally a skeptic of Bauer’s methods, he reported
Bauer several times for his rogue behavior. Eventually, however,
he and Jack became friends as Tony learned to trust Jack’s
unconventional methods. At one point, Almeida was arrested
for and accused of treason, along with agent Michelle Dessler,
for drugging CTU employee Ryan Chappelle and aiding Jack Bauer
in a search for evidence. Bauer was deemed rogue by CTU, but
was eventually proved to be correct, and the charges were
dropped against Almeida and Dessler. Dessler and Almedia became
romantically involved, and are currently married.
