Detective Nick Amaro

Amaro is a NYPD Detective 2nd Grade who transfers to the Special Victims Unit after spending time with both the Warrants and Narcotics squads. Like Fin, he had previously worked undercover while in Narcotics. Initially, Amaro does not see eye to eye with his new partner, Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay), mainly because she misses her old partner, Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni). Despite their rocky start, however, Amaro and Benson grow to have a mutual respect for each other and work well together.
