The man known as "2-Finger" Lipper was one of The Apparatus's most adept hitmen. He had thin light hair, heavy eyelids, and freckles. He had a pierced left ear.
2-Finger was tasked with killing Dick Tracy. Prior to the murder attempts, 2-Finger tried to to discredit Tracy by hiring "protesters" to join him at Police Headquarters and demand Tracy's removal from the department. This was not successful.
After purchasing several containers of gasoline, 2-Finger sent his henchmen to burn down Dick Tracy's house. Tracy survived, and 2-Finger was executed by the Apparatus when his plan failed.
