Cyrus Beene

Cyrus Rutherford Beene is the White House Chief of Staff. He is President Grant's right-hand man; married to reporter James Novak. He is a ruthless political monster, he will do anything in his power to keep Grant becoming president.

James and Cyrus met on the election campaign for Fitz Grant's primary run against Sally Langston. They started a secret affair, being in the political spotlight Cyrus knew he couldn't be "out" as a gay man. But eventually, after Fitz gets elected, he learns that it was the worst kept secret in Washington D.C. from Olivia.

Cyrus lost James when he was murdered by Jake Ballard to cover up the truth behind Sally Langston killing her husband Daniel Douglas Langston. B-613 made James' murder look like a carjacking; he does not know the truth.

Cyrus is one of many people who trained Olivia and taught her some of the tricks she's used as a "fixer" .
