Assistant Special Agents in Charge (ASACs)
Status: FBI ••••
VASCU Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge (ASAC) of the tri-state area’s Operations Department as well as its subordinate units. Psychiatrist with expertise in criminal and psychological profiling. Previously served on the Special Project and Field Liaison Departments; Dempsey was captured by a cult of serial murderers who cut ritualistic sigils in their victims’ skin. Dempsey was rescued before the cultists could do worse, but his face (and soul) remains permanently scarred. He is a veteran FBI agent, whose lengthy career has cost him much of his sanity and vitality—and all of his family, as his ex-wife and children want nothing to do with him. Despite all he has seen and experienced, he remains neither cynical nor callous—which may be why he drinks pepto-bismol by the gallon and is a chronic insomniac.
Supervisory Special Agents
M. Ruben Velásquez
Status: FBI •••
VASCU Supervisory Special Agent in charge of NOLA’s Field Liaison Department. His parents were Panamanian immigrants following the US’ 1989 invasion who, in a bizarre act of gratitude, named their named their son after President Bush’s dog, Millie. Agent Velásquez is a hardline, hard-nosed FBI agent known for idolizing J. Edgar Hoover and Ronald Reagan and coveting Paul Dempsey’s job. Less well-known is that he has obsessive-compulsive disorder with contamination fears that lead him to always wear bright blue latex crime scene gloves: both to prevent contamination with other’s vital fluids, but also to hide the raw skin from his excessively, compulsively washed hands.
