One of the youngest women to ever make homicide detective with the NYPD, Kate Beckett is a tough, smart, first-class investigator known for being a closer. She’s also gained a reputation as a detective who’s intrigued by the sort of cases that don’t fit neatly into a box. It’s a reflection of her ongoing quest for justice. Motivated to join the force after her mother’s murder was never solved, Beckett’s firsthand experience with tragedy fuels her unceasing drive to bring closure and justice to the victims and their families.
Initially forced to work with Castle, she chaffed against his less than serious approach to their partnership, but over time she has come to appreciate his storyteller’s mind. Solving case after case by combining his unique approach with her no-nonsense cop skills, Beckett and Castle have become unlikely partners with a very successful track record.
After meeting Beckett, Castle is inspired to begin a new series of novels about a female NYPD detective named Nikki Heat, clearly based on Beckett. The romantic tension of their early days has now evolved into a burgeoning relationship… Their relationship and many of their cases have been immortalized in five novels: Heat Wave, Naked Heat, Heat Rises, Frozen Heat and Deadly Heat. Although she feigns annoyance, Beckett is a huge fan of Castle’s previous novels and gets a secret kick out of being his inspiration.
In the fourth-season finale, Beckett resigns from the NYPD after she and Det. Esposito hide vital information regarding a case from Captain Gates, but later reneges on this and is allowed to return after she serves her suspension. She also briefly worked as a Special Investigator for the Attorney General before returning to the NYPD. In the first episodes of season five, it is clear that Kate and Castle are in an intimate relationship, and the two become engaged at the start of the sixth season.
