Chase Devineaux is an ACME special agent featured in later games and the Netflix revival of the Carmen Sandiego franchise.
Agent Devineaux has had several incarnations throughout the franchise' history. Originally, he was one of ACME's top agents and Carmen's former partner. However, after her departure from the agency, he also left in order to track her down himself. He eventually returned to ACME during the Babble-On crisis.(Citation Needed)
The Babble-On Machine Edit
After the disappearance of Agent 12, Agent Devineaux called in Agent 13 to help stop Carmen's plot to steal the gift of natural language. While Agent 13 systematically took down Carmen's henchmen and freed the other ACME detectives, Agent Devineaux continued to gather intelligence and track Carmen. After the destruction of the Tower of Babble and Carmen's escape, Agent Devineaux attempted to give chase using a jet pack.

Netflix Revival Edit
The 2019 revival of Carmen Sandiego featured a completely new Agent Devineaux. This version was a French Interpol Inspector from Poitiers, France. After coming face-to-face with the newly infamous Carmen Sandiego, he was quickly recruited to ACME along with his partner Julia Argent.
In this incarnation, Agent Devineaux is headstrong, arrogant, and sloppy. Despite clear contradictory evidence, he often immediately blames Carmen for the latest crime he is investigating. Despite this, she is quick to try and save him from Coach Brunt and Shadowsan after he is captured.
He is a patriotic Frenchman. He's also impulsive, arrogant, and reckless to the point of being a dumbbell who's a walking disaster zone. He tends to jump to conclusions without even trying to get the facts and then stubbornly stick with them even when there is clear contrary evidence. He's also shown to consider thorough detective work a waste of his time due to seeing it as obsessing over "dull facts about boring things". Because of this, he tends to miss clues those who do their research pick up.
It should be noted that despite his seeming recklessness, he's far from incompetent as shown under the proper circumstances. He's able to resist V.I.L.E.'s mind-reading machine initially and is smart enough to activate his A.C.M.E. pen after Carmen frees him so the Chief will see him in danger, ping his location and send a rescue party.
Physical description Edit
To be added
- Agent Devineaux was originally designed by Joseph John Barney.(Citation Needed)
- In the video games, Agent Devineaux often fills the role normally covered by the Chief by providing Player with intelligence and support.
- His original incarnation is accompanied by a falcon named Phoenix.
- Unlike previous installments that portray Chase as Carmen's worthy opponent and an equal to her in intelligence, Chase shows little knowledge of history and geography, making him less capable of seeing the big picture of Carmen's plans and his obsession with capturing her makes him blind to the times where she is not the enemy. And when she is an enemy, she's still less of an enemy than VILE.
- He was originally an American in the games he appeared in; here, he's French.
- In previous installments, Chase has red hair (Carmen’s dossier on him states that his hair is auburn). Here, Chase has brown hair.
