One of them, namely, Peter. "Mark does not mention Peter"s name," says Theophylact, "that he may not seem to praise his teacher, Peter, for his greater zeal for Christ."

This was Peter, as we learn from St. John xviii. 10. He is here actuated with his usual ardent zeal, calling to mind the example of Phinees, who by executing justice on the wicked, merited the reward of justice, and a continual priesthood. (Ven. Bede) St. Mark conceals his master's name, lest he should seem to be publishing the ardour of his zeal for Christ. (Theophylactus)
