* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Seems to be ''inverted'' - sometimes, she'll slip ''into'' a southern drawl that she normally doesn't really have.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Toward Rollins. When he finds out a bookie roughed her up over her gambling debts, he has the crooks place raided. He even punches him in the stomach, as he'd previously done to Rollins, telling him he knows what that was for.



* NaiveNewcomer: An interesting example. Fin's definitely been around the block a few times, both before and after his run as a narc, but he's woefully out of his depth when it comes to sex crimes. The show gets a good deal of [[LetMeGetThisStraight exposition]] of it.

* NumberTwo: Becomes this when Olivia takes over the squad, with her referring to him as her second in command when asked and trying to convince him to take the Sergents exam.


Added DiffLines:

** He's usually not into roughing up suspects(that's more Stablers thing) during a case involving children being sold as slaves, the man behind the slave ring attempts to run. Finn chases him down and gives him a well deserved NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.

* MeaningfulName: Back in Season 1, Stabler was this because he was the level-headed one and Benson was the hot-headed one.

* BlackAndGreyMorality: In the first episode of the second season, after the season one finale reveals that he fantasizes about killing suspects, he talks to a shrink about it and the current case, where he admits to doing it again, but the suspect is a 16 year old kid who had sent half his life being raped by his foster dad, and was an honor student who also helped mentally handicapped children play soccer. This troubled Elliot deeply. Later, he also had a case where he spent most of the day trying to get a guy to admit he raped and killed a woman. He was in the middle of berating him for also stabbing women with pins, when Oliva comes in and tells Elliot that the suspect was molested by his mother for years. He then switches to comforting him.

* SuddenSequelHeelSyndrome: His appearances in season 16 portray him as a professional, if not a little awkward, medical examiner who assists the SVU with his autopsies and during trial. In the premiere of season 17, on the other hand...

* SugarAndIcePersonality: Though snarky and somewhat distant with most of his coworkers (minus Benson) and other people he encounters at work, when we see him interacting with his friends and [[spoiler: best friend's wife, who also happens to be his ex-girlfriend]] in October Surprise, he is warm and kind. He hugs all of them at various points and gives big smiles (which account for four of the maybe five times he is shown smiling in the series.)

** He's also quite sweet with Olivia when they aren't arguing about a case; in fact, in "December Solstice" when she's asking him about Noah's parentage, he's downright ''tender'' with her, and he openly shows concern for her whenever she's going through a rough time, making sure she's okay and reacting [[TranquilFury furiously]] to anyone who threatens her.

When Detective Nick Amaro is briefly reassigned to Queens, Carisi is transferred to the Manhattan Special Victims Unit on a temporary basis. He eventually becomes a permanent member of the squad. Boasting experience in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, he takes a while to grasp the complex sensitivity required for SVU cases, as he'd previously been involved with Homicide.

* FriendToAllChildren: While not exactly highlighted, he's very good with children, including babies, and helps Rollins when she is initially struggling with [[spoiler: how to raise a child on her own.]] In "Patrimonial Burden", he is shown entertaining all the rape victim's siblings at the station, and they seem to like him, despite the situation. He's also very good with interviewing young children -- for instance, in "Collateral Damage". This is probably because he grew up with three younger sisters.
