Detective Marcus Dante (Tory Kittles)

Detective Dante (Tory Kittles) with a worried look on his face

Detective Dante (Tory Kittles)

Fresh from suspension, Detective Dante can be considered a good cop. It’s just his patience for the BS of the legal system, once he hands off his part in it, made him mad enough to punch the ADA. Mainly due to the ADA screwing over a girl, who flipped on her drug-dealing boyfriend, and when the ADA didn’t think they had a case, they left the girl vulnerable. Which, for Detective Dante, led him to feel justified in punching the ADA.

Though it should be noted, we aren’t explicitly told what happened to the girl. However, you could make assumptions.

  • Following Father’s Footsteps (1.3): Marcus’ father was a famed cop but, after being busted for drugs, his dad fell from grace. Hence Marcus always wanting to do things by the book.
