Our daughter's asking about you.

— Rowan to Maya, Everything's Coming Up Mellie

Rowan Pope, also known as Elijah Pope, is Olivia Pope's father. He was also the commanding officer for the CIA division of B613 until the President fired him.

History

Rowan was known as "Command" to Charlie and Huck and many other CIA off the book operatives on US Soil, Rowan was their boss before Charlie faked Huck's death and Charlie himself eventually deserted the program (Seven Fifty-Two). Charlie did actually come back to Wonderland later in season 3. Rowan was the man on top of the CIA B613 top assassins, and its clandestine division. It is important to note that even though Rowan has been "Command" for more than 22 years, he did not start the B613 program. Proofs can be heard in Season 3 when President Fitz asked Cyrus in the oval office how to get rid of B613, and Cyrus hushed the President and gave hint of B613 existence back to the days of US President Kennedy 1963 assassination in Dallas. Another proof that Rowan did not start B613 program is in Season 3 finale when Rowan tells President Fitz at the Pentagon that B613 is not an individual but an organization "you cut of the head of the snake ... another comes up.

His plan is to keep Olivia Pope & Fitz Grant apart from each other. He sent Jake Ballard to gain Olivia's trust and spark a relationship with her; he also instructed Jake to sleep with her. He wants Cyrus Beene to show the tape of Jake and Olivia making love to Fitz in order to keep Fitz away from Olivia. His intentions and true identity are unknown until his Olivia walks out of her apartment building into a media circus questioning her about being Fitz's mistress; his men pull her into a limousine where he awaits; Olivia responds... "Dad"! (White Hat's Back On)

When he first started working in the intelligence field, back when Olivia was younger, his cover was being a Curator of antiquities at the Smithsonian. He went to Princeton and graduated in 1967 just prior to being recruited by the CIA. (It's Handled)
