Curtis Hagen was a proficient criminal on White Collar.

Character Profile[edit | edit source]

Curtis Hagen was a con artist, talented art restorer, skilled forger and mastermind of a counterfeiting operation of WWII Spanish Victory Bonds. Stories of unredeemed bonds provided Hagen with the opportunity to cash in his 600 forgeries each for the value of the original worth $248,000. Using paper from old Spanish editions of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the original bond taken from the New York National Archives, Hagen is nonetheless apprehended by the FBI under the legal loophole Exigent Circumstances. Beginning with the pilot episode, The Dutchman would emerge as a shrewd and testy adversary.

He also endeavored to produce fake Canadian $100 bills, having stashed the necessary security threads in a safe deposit box wired to explode. While serving his sentence, Hagen blackmails Neal into destroying evidence against him in exchange for arranging that Peter Burke would not be indicted for the shooting death of Senator Terrence Pratt, for which Neal's father was responsible. The plot thickens, as now Neal must steal Chapter 13 from Mosconi's Codex, and then a stained glass 'decoder' from a Masonic church in order to satisfy Hagen's ever increasing demands. Burke discovers something's awry from the ill timed sale of another Curtis Hagen forgery as a larger mystery unfolds, one that Hagen knows leads to the lost twin of the Hope Diamond.

At the end of Live Feed While in custody of Peter Burke, Hagen is shot and killed by an unknown sniper. Before he is killed, his final words, to Neal Caffrey, are "Beg me for your freedom."
