Cigarette Smoking Man

Cigarette Smoking Man Cigarette Smoking Man - key conspirator and Mulder's nemesis.

The Cigarette Smoking Man is a key figure in the conspiracy, carrying out much of their dirty work, calling on the help of certain sections of the FBI. Working with Agent Krycek, the CSM has overseen the frustration of Mulder and Scully's efforts to uncover the truth.

An enigmatic figure, the CSM was once a friend of Mulder's parents, and may even be Mulder's real father! But we're never sure. All we can tell is that he's a shady figure. An investigation by the Lone Gunmen once hinted that the CSM was responsible for everything from the death of JFK to fixing the Oscars.

Having parted company with Krycek on bitter terms, the CSM continued to work for the conspiracy, until political arguments forced him into a somewhat more obscure role. Dying of cancer, he was last seen being pushed down a flight of stairs by Krycek.
