Watch Detective Adams' character profile video now.

Detective Lydia Adams is smart and perceptive, possessing excellent investigative instincts. Working in the homicide division after previously spending two years in the gang unit, she is one of the sharpest detectives around. She is sometimes impaired, however, by the emotional connection she holds to the cases she handles, as well as her insistence on doing things her own way. Lydia has gone through numerous partners over the past few years, but she may have finally found the right fit in new partner Ruben Robinson (guest star Dorian Missick), a former Marine and detective-in-training who seems eager to let Lydia take the lead.
