He has an unusual hobby, he kills people who are guilty of murder and other offenses but are outside the reach of law. He grew up with a foster family, the Morgans. Harry Morgan, a police detective, recognized early on the sociopathic tendencies of his foster child. Trying to minimize the effects of these violent ideas, he trained Dexter to target his hidden dark urges on people who were guilty of crimes. He also taught him how to commit murder without leaving any clues that could be traced back to him. Dexter follows his foster father’s principles and calls these, The Code of Harry. His sister Deborah also works in the Miami-Dade Police department, in the Vice squad. But, she really wants to work in the Homicide division.

However, he soon realizes that the killer seems to know him and his secret. He sends personal messages to Dexter, baiting him. As Darkly Dreaming Dexter progresses towards the climax, Dexter becomes involved deeper in the investigation. But, the investigation soon turns more personal as the killer kidnaps Deborah.
