Special Agent Derek Morgan is played by the hunky Shemar Moore, who in real life posts shirtless pictures on Facebook (you’re welcome, by the way).
Derek is a member of the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU), meaning that it’s his job to catch serial killers by studying their personalities. You’ll have no trouble studying Derek, and if you can figure out a way to catch him, it would be a crime to let him go. Of course, if you commit a crime, he might handcuff you….
Born on the Southside of Chicago, Derek was unfortunate enough to witness his father, a Chicago police officer, being brutally murdered. This had a serious affect on Derek, who dealt with his feelings by becoming involved in frequent fights. This behavior eventually got him in trouble, and he spent more than a little time in the company of police officers.
By the time he graduated high school, Derek had straightened his life out and was offered a football scholarship at Northwestern University. Derek proved to be an excellent quarterback and student, but suffered a career ending knee injury. Luckily, the rest of his body was fine (and I mean fine), and he was able to continue his studies, eventually graduating Cum Laude with a degree in law.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Derek became a Chicago police officer. One assumes that he excelled in this role, because he was soon accepted into the bomb squad. There, he learned valuable skills and made him very attentive and good with his hands. Eventually, Derek joined the F.B.I. and became part of the BAU team.
Initially, Derek was reserved and followed the regulations to the letter. As time went on, he became more relaxed, and eventually began to play good natured practical jokes. Although Derek is definitely the “jock” of the team, he often shows off his intelligence, and is one of the only members of the team able to understand Dr. Reid’s intellectual jokes. At times, his suave side shows, and he often charms fellow officers without even trying.
If you’re looking for a man who will listen to you without judgment, look no farther than Derek Morgan. He is loyal and funny and can charm the pants (and probably the rest of your clothes) off you. Plus, he has a black belt in Judo, which emphasizes wrestling your opponent to the ground and pinning them there, so you might want to practice with him….
