[[folder: Red Cell Members]]
!! Sam Cooper (Forest Whitaker)
--> "Aaron Hotchner wasn't available, was he?"
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a generally kind and empathetic man, but there are a few hints that he's got a darker side, like when Beth has to stop him from strangling a particularly twisted [=UnSub=] to death with his bare hands.
* [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou Mommy Had A Good Reason For Abandoning You]]: He likes to believe that his biological mother, whom he never met, gave him up to give him a chance at a better life.
* MysteriousPast: He's an old friend of Aaron Hotchner and David Rossi, has a history with Mick Rawson, left the BAU for a while and then rejoined it, is a Catholic priest and graduated from a seminary, and somehow got the authority to handpick a Red Cell team including a foreign national and an ex-con, two types of people usually not allowed to join the FBI.
* ReligiousBruiser: He's a Catholic priest and a skilled practitioner of Kali.
!! Beth Griffith (Jeanene Garofalo)
* BrutalHonesty: Has gotten her in trouble before.
* CassandraTruth: They apparently would've caught the Beltway snipers a lot sooner if they had listened to her.
* NoSocialSkills: A milder example than most, but she's definitely socially awkward.
* WhenYouComingHomeDad: Both her parents were doctors and were constantly being called away, and she responded with increasing acts of rebellion up to [[CuttingTheElectronicLeash smashing her dad's pager in the garage]].
!! Mick Rawson (Matt Ryan)
* BigBrotherInstinct: Implied concerning his unseen little sister, Jenna.
* HandsomeLech: He's somewhere between this and ChivalrousPervert. In 1x04, he describes himself as a "serial dater" and has trouble remembering if his last night's date's name was "Lisa" or "Elise", but he also seems genuinely insulted at the accidental suggestion that he's just racking up notches on his bedpost.
!! Jonathan "Prophet" Simms (Michael Kelly)
* TheAtoner: For [[VigilanteExecution killing a child molester]].
* BerserkButton: He doesn't like child molesters.
!! [=Gina LaSalle=] (Beau Garrett)
* WellDoneSonGuy: Her father doesn't have much faith in her career, and has apparently always viewed her as just "the pretty one".
!! Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness)
* CharacterOverlap: See ''Series/CriminalMinds''
!! Jack Fickler (Richard Schiff)
