To satisfy his interest in blood and to facilitate his own crimes, Dexter Morgan (played by Michael C. Hall), works as a blood spatter analyst for the 'Miami Metro Police Department, ' visiting crime scenes and helping figure out (with an amazing 'intuitive' sense) what happened. He has an avocation, too: during his off hours, he tracks down some very, very bad people who for various reasons have eluded the proper authorities. Seems his adoptive father, a cop himself, taught the kid how to channel his dark side in a "positive" direction; and so, having captured these evildoers, Dexter dispatches them with clinical precision, thus making him a serial killer who snuffs serial killers. Although his drive to kill is unflinching, he is easily able to emulate normal emotions and keep up his appearance as a socially-responsible human being
