DS Matt Devlin

Matt Devlin is DS Ronnie Brooks' younger and more impulsive partner, friend, and surrogate son. He sincerely looks up to Brooks but takes a more aggressive and black-and-white stand on their cases. Matt is from an Irish-Catholic family in Kilburn. Cheeky and charming, Matt's policing instinct is second to none. In equal parts a force to be reckoned with and a good-looking playboy, Matt brings energy and optimism to the partnership.

Devlin has a romanticized idea of policing and absolutely loves his job and believes in what he does. Despite rejecting the "absolutism" of his upbringing, he still has a black-and-white view of the law: people are either innocent or guilty. Hardworking, efficient and thorough, Matt has a traditional view of the law: but he'll also push past the rule of procedure when he feels his cause is just. He has little sympathy for people who commit crimes, whatever their circumstances might have been.

Inseparable now for five years, Matt and Ronnie are mischievous when they're together: each recognizes the twinkle in the other's eye and they are known at the station as Morecambe and Wise.

- Info taken from Matt's Wiki

"In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecutors who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories."

RONNIE: He can't even look after a goldfish.

MATT: I fed it just like you said. The fish was ailing before I went anywhere near it.

RONNIE: Tell that to my daughter.

- Episode 1x01, Law & Order UK


Matt was killed off via shooting in Law & Order UK episode 5x6. For the purposes of RP and muse writing, this Matt muse is AU to canon in that he was shot but didn't die because he is a muse I love just cannot say goodbye to :) So, if he happens to encounter canon mates, as much as he would be an amusing ghost, he's very much still alive.
