By Daniel Wolf 

Now that S.H.I.E.L.D. is officially coming to a television set near you, it's time to meet the agents.

Per (via here are S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new agents:

Skye – This late-20s woman sounds like a dream: fun, smart, caring and confident—with an ability to get the upper hand by using her wit and charm. 
Agent Grant Ward – Quite the physical specimen and “cool under fire,” he sometimes botches interpersonal relations. He’s a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he’s the kind of guy that grows on you. 
Agent Althea Rice – Also known as “The Calvary,” this hard-core soldier has crazy skills when it comes to weapons and being a pilot. But her experiences have left her very quiet and a little damaged. 
Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons – These two came through training together and still choose to spend most of their time in each other’s company. Their sibling-like relationship is reinforced by their shared nerd tendencies—she deals with biology and chemistry, he’s a whiz at the technical side of weaponry.

No word on actors being cast for any of these roles yet, so stay tuned.
