She leads with empathy and professionalism, all the while dealing with her difficult past - as a product of rape and a witness to her mother's grief, she can personally relate to each victim she tries to help. Joining her are Det. Odafin “Fin” Tutuola who adds a unique sense of humor and undercover investigative experience. Det. Amanda Rollins has earned her place as an integral part of the team while facing head-on the emotional toll it takes to work SVU, and Det. Dominick “Sonny” Carisi brings a fresh outlook and distinctive style of investigation to the squad.
