List of Appearances

Trent Thomas Kort was a one-eyed British national and a former CIA operative. He is known being the arch-enemy of NCIS Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo.



Born on October 21, 1967, Kort grew up in England.

He studied at Oxford University during the 1980s where he was a track athlete.

He later emigrated to the United States and joined the CIA as an operative.

Following September 11, 2001, Kort met Jacob Scott, a member of the British MI6 thanks to the efforts of Dr. Edgar Polk who at the time was the head of a nuclear isotope research center.

His greed getting the better of him, Kort became a traitor, turning against both the United Kingdom and the United States as he sold nuclear secrets while portraying Scott as the fall-guy.

Tragically, an operation NCIS had conducted to apprehend Scott's wife who was the dealer ended with her death while Kort kept the crimes he'd committed under wraps for the next decade.

Following that operation and with his CIA superiors none the wiser about his dealings with Russia, Kort returned to work for the CIA and at some point, was assigned to Operation Lodestone, an operation concerning international arms dealer René Benoit AKA "La Grenouille".

Kort was a tall, lean man in his late forties, early fifties with a shaved head and blue eyes.

However, upon losing his eye at the hands of Port-to-Port Killer Lieutenant Jonas Cobb, Kort resorted to wearing an eyepatch, presumably to cover the fact that his left eye socket was now empty.

By the time he had returned in "Dead Letter", it was shown that the eyepatch was long gone and that he was now wearing a glass eye.

He also wore numerous business suits composed of a single jacket, trousers, a shirt, a tie and shoes.
