a better summary than he gets in the showcase character guide.

An attempt to be brief and slightly improve upon the old summary:

Previously divorced homicide detective Angel Batista cares most about his job and his young daughter. Strict principles make Batista a fair cop, but don't preclude his taste for the ladies. He considers himself a close friend of Dexter's and, as a sergeant in the homicide department, is a valuable ally.

Is it just me, or does anyone else want to see Angel find someone? He's such a sweetheart.
