New York City Police Department 8th Precinct Homicide Task Force Detective Lionel P. Fusco is a police detective who was previously with NYPD 51st Precinct Vice Squad, who were all corrupt, even Fusco himself, but he did it for personal loyalty rather than greed. John Reese gave him a chance for redemption. At first, John had to blackmail him with the death of a murdered fellow officer, but over time, Fusco has become increasingly loyal to both Reese and Finch, and is now their source of information and support within the police department. He has an ex-wife and a young son. Like Carter, he is unaware of the Machine's existence.
