PERSONAL PROFILE:
Turnbull is an enigma. Although one must pass rigorous para-military training in order to become a Mountie, Turnbull displays seemingly little intelligence. He is frequently seen doing minor office tasks, some of which he seems incapable of managing. He is a klutz at times (he broke an expensive vase). However, his grasp of O&C ('obfuscation and confusion') is his biggest asset. By simply obeying orders and answering the phone, he can induce the strongest of men to wish they could reach out and strangle the Mountie.
