"I always have the honour to serve in this household."

Kyrano is the household manager for International Rescue, at its secret base on Tracy Island. He is the father of Tin-Tin, who resides with him at the Tracy Villa.

And he's also the half-brother of The Hood - the main antagonist of the Thunderbirds TV series.


Kyrano has long been a friend of Jeff Tracy, who is grateful for Kyrano's great loyalty. Both men are fathers, and widowers; and their six grown children (between them) make for a unique "combined" family.

Kyrano is a proud manservant to the Tracys, not allowing anyone to get in his way.

But a shadow perpetually follows him. From his distant hidden temple - standing before a Voodoo statue in his half-brother's image - the Hood exerted a mysterious power over him...sending Kyrano collapsing to the floor in agony, overcome by a massive panic attack...

Afterwards, however, it appeared that he retained no conscious knowledge of these psychic assaults; as he always passed them off as mere 'dizzy spells' - despite his otherwise-unquestionable loyalty to Jeff.
