    He is as tough as he looks, and probably better known by name - very well known by name - than by his image.

    This is Allan Pinkerson, a dectetive and spy.
    The description Last of the Romans (Ultimus Romanorum) has historically been given to any man thought to embody the values of Ancient Roman civilization —values which, by implication, became extinct on his death. It has been used to describe a number of individuals.
    Flavius Belisarius (505?–565), one of the greatest generals of the Byzantine Empire and one of the most acclaimed generals in history. He was also the only Byzantine general to be granted a Roman Triumph.

    Correct, Alan Pinkerton. Scottish born US spy (he headed up the Union intelligence network that later evolved into the current Secret Service) and founder of the legendary detective agency - which preceded his Civil War role. A very interesting character who was involved in what we would now deem 'left-wing' activities in his early years; active in the Chartist movement that was the fore-runner of trade unionism and the abolition after migrating to the US. His home was part of the Underground Railroad in those years.

    rep and your go.

    actually all answers are correct, but i guess it's Grymloq's turn since he posted his "official" name
