them to free all the KND Operatives in Operation C.H.A.D. (Charming Hero Avoids Destruction). He soon lost his position as leader of the KND, and became a villain in many of the later episodes. When he thought the Kids Next Door no longer respected him, he decided to end his reign as leader when he was about to turn 13, as seen in Operation E.N.D.
He also escaped decommissioning. His codename was Numbuh 274. After he was arrested and thrown in Moonbase prison, Numbuh 362 replaced him, so it is likely that Numbuh 362 had the second greatest political power in the Kids Next Door. He later refused to be called "Numbuh 274" ever again and supposedly had all of his adventures with the KND permanently erased from his memory so as to ensure that the teens or other adults did not discover any more secrets about the KND.
He later became a villain and everybody referred to him as a "traitor" due to his betrayal of the Kids Next Door. He acted as a villain in many different episodes, including Op. S.L.U.M.B.E.R., L.E.A.D.E.R., Z.E.R.O., and E.L.E.C.T.I.O.N.S. However, in Operation: T.R.E.A.T.Y., it was revealed that he never actually betrayed the Kids Next Door, but was rather falsely decommissioned, whereby he became an undercover agent for the Kids Next Door just like Maurice, forcing him to lie to his fellow teammates because of this. From that point on, the Kids Next Door never looked down on him ever again, knowing he was still the best there is.
In Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S., it was never revealed how Chad Dickson helped construct the guidelines of the KND.
