Dexter is a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Metro Police Department. Based on a code given to him by his foster father, Harry, he survives ethically as a serial killer. He utilizes his expertise, often withholding evidence from the police so he can solve murders and kill the killers either before they kill again, or before they are caught by the police.

Character Bio

Rudy Cooper photo
Brian Moser (aka Rudy Cooper), was Dexter's biological older brother and the main antagonist of the first season. As children, both brothers witnessed their mother, Laura, being murdered with a chainsaw while they were in the same shipping container with her, after which they were both left for two days until the police found them. The officer-on-scene, Harry Morgan, immediately gathered Dexter up and sent someone in to retrieve Brian. While Dexter was adopted by the Morgan family, Brian was left in the state's care. Brian stated that in his opinion, Morgan didn't want anything to do with him because he saw him as a "fucked up kid" (Brian suffered severe psychological trauma due to the experiences in the container and was left in a mental institution, where over time he became a violent sociopath.)[4]

Upon being released, he went underground, refining his ability to kill and taking on the identity of a plumber he killed (Rudy Cooper) as an alias, all while searching for his brother. Eventually, Brian not only discovered Dexter's location and history upon being separated, but also discovered he was similarly "damaged"; upon learning this, Brian immediately plotted to reunite with Dexter for the purpose of killing people side-by-side.

Brian went to Miami, working as a prosthetist and murdering prostitutes as the "Ice Truck Killer". At some of his kills and at Dexter's apartment, Brian left clues to his and Dexter's past. Brian developed a relationship with Debra, Dexter's foster sister while treating one of his own victims Tony Tucci. As Debra fell in love with him, he used Debra as a means to get closer to Dexter. The week before Dexter was informed of the death of his biological father (Joseph Driscoll) and met Brian Moser for the first time, Brian disguised himself as a cable repair man and visited the house of the deceased man. At the end of the ninth episode of the first season it was implied that Brian had murdered Joseph Driscoll while in disguise by injecting him with diabetic insulin. The body was cremated before Dexter could find any evidence of murder. Brian began slowly to show more of an interest in spending time with Dexter. When Brian talked to Dexter about possibly marrying Debra, he lied about a cut on his lip. He told Dexter it was a lab accident, but in reality he received the cut after attacking and nearly killing Angel Batista. This led Dexter to the realisation that Brian was the Ice Truck Killer. Brian immediately kidnapped Debra, which led to the police suspecting his involvement in the Ice Truck Killer case.

After searching through Brian's apartment, Dexter tracked him down at the site of their childhood home, where Dexter recalled that they were brothers. Brian told Dexter his history upon being separated, and tried to convince Dexter to kill Debra in the same manner that he killed his victims. Dexter refused, leading to a fight between the two as the police arrived. Brian escaped the house and disappeared.

Brian later attempted to kill Debra when he thought she was staying at Dexter's apartment, but instead fell into a trap set by Dexter, who then brought him to the cooling room where Brian committed his murders. After a few choice words between them, a heartbroken Dexter slashed Brian's throat and drained his blood into a bucket, killing him in the same manner as Brian did his victims, but making it appear to the police that Brian killed himself.

Brian's death left Dexter in great pain, to the point that he began making mistakes in his killing rituals. In early episodes of the second season, Brian appeared to Dexter as a vision and in the end, Dexter learned he needed to let go of his feelings about his brother before he could move on with his life.
