Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker — Agent Jemma Simmon and Agent Leo Fitz, a duo who met while training, who are said to have a sibling-like connection.
Chloe Bennett — Skye, a confident woman who is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exist within it.
