Character Bio

Derek Morgan photo
Derek Morgan is a Supervisory Special Agent (and served as interim unit chief for SSA Aaron Hotchner), is a confident, assertive, and often hot-tempered character. Raised by his mother Fran, along with his two sisters, Sarah Morgan and Desiree Benita, Derek was a troubled Chicago youth headed for juvenile delinquency. He was rescued and mentored by Carl Buford (Julius Tennon). Buford turned out to be a sexual predator who molested Derek and other young boys; he was eventually arrested for murder. After developing an interest in football, Derek attended Northwestern University on a scholarship. After a football injury left him unable to play football, he joined the Chicago Police Department's bomb squad, then moved to the BAU. He has a special relationship with Technical Analyst Penelope Garcia, and the two have a unique shorthand and banter. In season seven premiere "It Takes a Village," Derek shows complete hatred towards Ian Doyle (Timothy V. Murphy) for killing SSA Emily Prentiss, but when Emily returns alive, he has mixed feelings.
