Description

Kitteridge is a tall man, athletic erring on the side of thin. He’s typically seen in business-casual attire: comfortable slacks, functional shoes, and button-down shirts with a tie that is either loose around his neck or a clip-on, depending on how likely someone is to try to grab his tie to strangle him that day.

He walks, talks, and all-around behaves with a kind of brisk, no-time-for-this confidence. His eyes are at all times alert and attentive, deliberately full of focus on whatever he’s looking at—which is probably why he has very little patience for those who waste his concentration.

Kitteridge has the foulest mouth in the entire police department, and about this he is entirely unapologetic. His heavily-accented speech identifies him to any knowing New Yorker of his thoroughly Brooklyn upbringing.

“Six o’clock the siren kicks him from a dream
Tries to shake it off but it just won’t stop
Can’t find the strength but he’s got promises to keep
And wood to chop before he sleeps
I may never get over
But never’s better than now
I’ve got bases to cover
He’s in the parking lot and he’s just sitting in his car
It’s nine o’clock but he can’t get out
He lights a cigarette
And turns the music down
But just can’t seem to shake that sound”

“So while you sit back and wonder why
I got this fucking thorn in my side
Oh my Good, it’s a mirage
I’m tellin’ y’all it’s a sabotage
So listen up ‘cause you can’t say nothin’
You’ll shut me down with a push of your button?
But I’m out and I’m gone
I’ll tell you now I keep it on and on
‘Cause what you see you might not get
And we can bet so don’t you get souped yet
You’re scheming on a thing that’s a mirage
I’m trying to tell you now it’s sabotage”

Quotes

Pretend someone asked “What do you think of (character name)?” Answer it!

  • “I know part of it is that he just doesn’t know werewolf stuff and so he was being stubborn because I couldn’t be like ‘Well goshy-darn Kitteridge I’m gonna go look for loci at your murderin’ scenes!’ and so he saw it as me withholding information, but UGH he’s such a…BLACK AND DECKER.”Felicity Mayweather
  • “He’s a good man. And he’s useful. But he needs to learn discipline, or he’s not going to last much longer.” — Annette Poulin
  • “Impressed me at first, but I’m gettin’ real tired of hearing about what a pussy this guy is. Shape the fuck up or you’re done.” — Max
  • “I don’t think he’s been the same since Ace broke up with him. He doesn’t show it, but I think he’s pretty sensitive. I want to help, but I don’t really know how. I think sometimes, with some people, you just have to leave them alone for a while and hope they come around. I’m trying to be understanding, but sometimes the way he talks…ugh! I hope he comes around. That’s all I’m going to say.” — Kim Huynh
  • “Why is he wasting his time with a pack that doesn’t even like him, let alone listen to him or appreciate him? He deserves better…” — Eliza LaValle
  • “Things got really messy really fast, but it’s not like I ever stopped feeling how I did. Desmond will always be really important to me, which I think is why it scares me when I sense that he’s on the verge of leaving. I’m trying to do everything I can, knowing that it might never be enough.” — Ace
  • “It’s kind of encoded in me that if a kid lashes out there’s a reason for that. Someone hurt them, and they’re lashing out cause they’re kids and they don’t know how to protect themselves otherwise. I can be patient for an eternity with kids. But if an adult does that, I just lose my patience. I know it. But I just need to remember that adults do it for the same reason. People want to protect themselves. Desmond’s doing that because he feels like we’re putting it on his shoulders and like he’s not part of the pack. It’s just really hard for me to reconcile that sometimes. I’m sympathetic and I understand where he’s coming from when I think about it a few days later, but in the moment I just want to shake him. But I should do something to help him through the stress – let’s see if I can think of something…”Mayweatha
  • “…It’s weird that while my relationships with pretty much everyone else has become awkward or angry or awful, my relationship with Desmond has solidified. I know I can rely on him and bug him and so long as I give a quick explanation, he’s chill with whatever. It’s – nice?” — Mayweatha
