    SEAL Team Six

Richard "RIP" Taggert

Played by: Walton Goggins

SEAL Team former commander.

  • Abusive Parents: When Rip was a child, his alcoholic father would sometimes beat him. This actually fueled his desire to become a SEAL: as he wanted to become such a badass his father would never dare to hit him again.
  • The Alcoholic: He drinks heavily as a way of coping with his PTSD.
  • A Father to His Men: He looks after them, especially Bear since he looks at him like a father figure.
  • Create Your Own Villain: By killing Omar, who had surrendered, he just made Nasry into a terrorist willing to go after Americans everywhere. And he makes it a priority to catch him.
  • Distressed Dude: Rip's capture by Boko Haram and later Muttaqi's organization drives much of the first season's plot.
  • Experienced Protagonist: Served as a Navy SEAL for 17 years, six in STS.
  • False Confession: Subverted. Rip is forced to make a video confession about executing an unarmed prisoner in "Confession". The public is told that he is acting under duress and just saying what his captors want him to say. The other SEALs know that the confession is true.
  • Private Military Contractors: Has been doing contractor work in Africa after leaving the SEALs.
  • Weapon of Choice: Uses a P226 pistol as his main sidearm while doing contractor work.

Joe "Bear" Graves

Played by: Barry Sloane

  • Disappeared Dad: He didn't have a father to raise him when he was young.
  • Number Two: Second in command of the team.
    • You Are in Command Now: He becomes the new leader after RIP leaves. And later after RIP dies despite surviving surgery in the 2nd season.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: He had a baby daughter named Sarah who passed away when she was only a few months old.

Alex Caulder

Played by: Kyle Schmid

  • Blame Game: Gets blamed by Bear for the events that made RIP leave the Navy after he killed Omar, despite his attempts to surrender. Although that goes away by the end of the first season.
  • Blood Knight: Admits that he's one, despite knowing that hunting down terrorists could be used as propaganda to get more recruits to join in terrorism. He explains to Dharma that he can't hesitate about second thoughts on killing a terrorist.
    Alex: "Doubt creates hesitation. Hesitation gets you killed... I'm a warrior. It's who I am."
  • The Casanova: He's a bachelor and a womanizer. When Bear meets Dharma for the first time since she was a baby, he assumes that Alex has a new teenage girlfriend.
    Bear: This is a new low even for you.
  • Comforting the Widow: After Buck's death, his grieving widow asks Alex to come over because she doesn't want to be alone. This leads to the two of them having sex.
  • Dented Iron: Caulder has been in close proximity to too many explosions and suffers from constant ringing in the ears and dizziness in the second season. After he collapses and Dharma takes him to a hospital, a neurologist informs him he has extensive brain damage and that this will kill him unless he avoids such situations, which means resigning from the military. He doesn't.
  • Estranged Soap Family: Dharma, his daughter, shows up after being estranged from his wife for a long time.
  • Not What I Signed on For: Alex didn't sign up just to kill terrorists who are defenseless and those who choose to surrender.

Armin "Fishbait" Khan

Played by: Jaylen Moore

Trevor Wozniak

Played by: Eric Ladin

  • Audience Surrogate: Trevor is one for those who believe that the Saudis should be handled due to the view that the West is not handling them properly since the hijackers in 9/11 are Saudi (at least most of them).
