Michael Knight
You play the role of Michael Knight, the hero of the series. A former Green Beret and police officer, Michael was "killed" in the line of duty, given plastic surgery and a brand new identity by the Knight Industries, an organization founded by Wilton Knight. He now works for FLAG, a private crime-fighting arm of Knight Industries. Michael was selected for his high level of self-defense training, intelligence, law enforcement experience, and his ability and preference to work alone without assistance or back-up. Together with a high-tech automobile called the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), Michael Knight agrees to carry on Wilton Knight's crusade of aiding the powerless. Since the game is portrayed from the first-person perspective of Michael driving KITT, you never see him in the game.

Dr. Bonnie Barstow
Bonnie is the chief technician for KITT, performing upgrades and repairs whenever necessary, in order to keep KITT in top crime fighting condition. At the start of each mission, Bonnie will chide Michael for not being more careful with KITT, and offer to provide one upgrade to KITT in the form of more shields, more gas storage, more efficient engine, more missile store, or more laser capacity.
