An oops? re-reading Issue 25, Part 1

Either there's a typo, or Agent Grant is capable of supporting more than one full name as well as multiple instantiations of himself.

Early in The Chains We Forge in Life: Part One:

The conscious men and women sitting around the table are: CB (Curveball), Roger Whitman (Regiment), Jenny Forrest (Zero), Jack Barrow (Scrapper Jack), Special Agents Grant Ward and Lijuan Hu ....

Later on:

“It is.” Special Agent Alan Grant ....

While extra names for his extra instances might help to distinguish them, there is apparently only one of him in this room at this time (unless he's pulling a fast one...) and thus only one name is likely appropriate. Since he always addresses his partner with her last name, it would make sense if she addressed him by his last name, so it seems probable that the latter name is more accurate.

I haven't been through the rest of the novel to see whether Agent Grant has any additional names, just re-reading a few episodes while waiting (im)patiently for the next one (hint hint)....
