Dexter Morgan is the main character and antihero from the Showtime television series, Dexter. Dexter is a forensic blood spatter analyst who moonlights as a serial killer that targets other killers instead of innocent people. He has a methodical way of killing people and because of that Dexter was able to avoid the justice system by getting rid of any evidence that would link him to the murder. Dexter dumped the evidence, including the body, into the stream that flowed into the Atlantic Ocean. Get the look of the forensic analyst turned serial killer with this Dexter Morgan costume guide.

While Sergeant James Doakes was framed for his murders, Dexter Morgan was the true “Bay Harbor Butcher” mentioned on the Showtime series, Dexter. It was a legend that died along with Doakes until Maria LaGuerta reopened the investigation after discovering a mysterious slide of blood at Travis Marshall’s crime scene. He didn’t get as much attention as his brother, Brian Moser, better known as “The Ice Truck Killer” had received all the attention due to their similar killing styles.
The number of people the forensic blood splatter analyst is thought to have killed is well into the hundreds, but the exact number is unknown for certain. Throughout the series, one thing that stands out about Dexter is his need for control—both of himself and others. It was vital for him to suppress his urges and follow the code in order for him to survive.
