His special mount is his motorcycle. His [[KickTheDog "occasional moral lapses"]] indicate that even though he's a Paladin, the [[SlidingScaleLongName cynicism of the]] LawAndOrder [[TheVerse Universe]], he's fallen every now and then... but that's what the spell [[TheAtoner Atonement]] is for.

Back in the seventies, he was on the [[Film/PrinceOfTheCity SIU squad under Detective Ciello]]. He was prosecuted for corruption, but was acquitted, and remained a detective in the NYPD.
