Rafik 'Raf' Rousseau

With the strength of a boxer and reflexes of a street fighter, Raf can always be counted on to defend those close to him. But under his powerful exterior is a profoundly sensitive, intuitive man who learned the hard way the price you pay for choosing violence over words: his own father was sent to jail for protecting him from an abusive music teacher. Raf remains a gifted jazz musician and copes with his tough experiences on Team One through music. Season Five marks the anniversary of Raf joining the team – but on this day, the incident takes a shocking turn, leaving the Team deeply shaken. Ed and Raf go head to head in the chaotic aftermath… and Raf is left to question whether remaining on the force as an SRU officer is the best way for him to keep the peace.
