Character Bio

Lindsey McDonald photo
Lindsey McDonald is a fictional character from the television series Angel. He first appeared in the series' first episode, "City of," and featured prominently in the story arcs of seasons one, two, and five. Lindsey is the only character besides Angel himself to appear in both the first and last episodes of Angel. Lindsey is portrayed by Christian Kane.

While primarily an antagonist, Lindsey is shown to be a morally ambiguous character. Serving as both an enemy and ally to the Angel Investigations team, he occasionally allied himself with them to stop some of Wolfram & Hart's particularly heinous agendas. There were moments where he could have genuinely switched sides, and others where he displayed camaraderie, affection, and, in later episodes, admiration for Angel. Kane has described the character as being driven by cynicism and ambition: "I still think this cat looks at the glass as being half empty. And so, damn it, I’m going to drink the rest of that water."

Powers and Abilities

His long career in Wolfram & Hart gained him a great deal of legal knowledge, and until the removal of his strumming hand he was also a competent guitarist.

Thanks to an unrevealed mystical process, Lindsey became gifted with superhuman physical attributes before his appearance in the fifth season, allowing him to go toe-to-toe with Angel in single combat, as well as runic tattoos meant to hide him from all known surveillance methods other than the naked eye. He was also capable of transmuting a small knife into a sword and was an adept swordsman, as well as some telekinetic abilities.
