One of the special agents of the [=CBI=], and probably the most down to earth of the group. Asian-American of Korean heritage. Before joining the [=CBI=], he was a gangbanger called "The Iceman", a fact which Jane finds hilarious (in his defense, it is more than a little {{Cliche}} and overblown). He's the calm and collected of the group, rarely showing any emotion at all.
