** Among the detectives, Jimmy [=McNulty=] is the Hunter, being comparatively young and making bold moves to make big cases because he feels he has little to lose. Bunk Moreland is the Lord, a somewhat older man who has secured his place in Homicide and although interested in good police work is also not about to risk his place to do so. Lester Freamon is the Prophet--although he's just as eager as [=McNulty=] to bring in the big cases, he does so in the context of mentoring younger detectives in the hope that they will embrace his model of thorough and meticulous investigation, and he worries deeply about the future of the BPD.

** Additionally, among the secondary characters Glorfindel and Elrond are described in these terms with Gandalf in the house of Elrond: Glorfindel the Prince on errantry, Elrond as the Lord and Gandalf as the prophet. (Though ironically, Glorfindel is older than Elrond: [[AllInTheManual he saved Elrond's father Eärendil in the sack of Gondolin when Eärendil was still a child]].)

** Walt is an odd case; he starts the series as the Prophet, mostly accepting his terminal cancer and only being concerned with leaving behind a positive legacy in his two children (and later, again, in Jesse). But then as he rises through the criminal underworld and gains more notoriety, Walt's greed and arrogance actually causes him to ''regress'' back to being the Lord, now largely concerned with his new criminal empire and how to keep it.
