Dexter Morgan, a simple forensic scientist from Miami at first glance, is the main character of the TV series. When a murder occurs, Morgan is called to the scene of the crime, as he is a true blood spatter expert. However, nobody knows the true nature of this medical examiner.

Dexter is a psychopathic killer who is incapable of empathizing with people. Fortunately, his father was able to predict Dexter’s future behavior and corrected it with a special set of rules. Although the main character – in accordance with his diagnosis – kills people, his victims are the real criminals, whom Dexter himself condemns to death.
