"Everything we seize, we keep. 

 Everything we keep, we use”.

 

  DESCRIPTION 

  Donovan "Van" Ray (Peter Facinelli) and Deaqon "Deaq" Hayes (Bill Bellamy) two cops; one white and one black; one from Los Angeles and the other from New York. They don't carry badges. Van and Deaq meet up when Van's partner, Deaq's older brother Andre Hayes (Vondie Curtis Hall); is killed during a car smuggling sting operation. They're working undercover for Wilhelmina "Billie" Chambers (Tiffani Thiessen) on a new special unit. Everything they need to fight high-end criminals they get from the Candy Store, "the ultimate backstage pass". An undercover department of the LAPD, filled with all kinds of high end merchandise, cars, bikes ..to be used for future undercover stints.

 

Donovan "Van" Ray (played by Peter Facinelli)

  A tanned athletic man. Medium-length brown hair, parted in the center then left to hang and frame his face. He has that perfectly messy hairstyle down to a science, making it look like he just crawled out of bed. A beard decorates his chin and upper lip. He has an attractive face with sultry expressive light green eyes with a somewhat grayish tint, that, if you look into, you could almost see the pure sexuality in them. His dearly designer clothes have an intentionally casual look. He wears a few silver rings on his fingers. Not too many and none of them gaudy, but masculine. He also wears a pair of silver necklaces, hanging from his neck. He looks a bit like a rock star, but the gun and the gold badge clipped to his belt tells that he isn't. He drives expensive sports cars and hangs out at trendy clubs. That's Donovan "Van" Ray. Also known as Van Strummer, if he's using his undercover identity. He's a former professional surfer, a real daredevil and lady slayer. Van was a member of the LAPD before his partner, André Hayes, was gunned down and he joined the Candy Store. His knowledge with inner workings of crime go right to his roots. Van is an excellent Cop and an even better Undercover Cop. If he has one flaw it might be that he sometimes gets too close to the mark. He likes sexy women, fast cars and his "toys". Sometimes he can be annoying in the way that a little brother is. He's a bit argumentative and does not like to admit that he is wrong, a little neurotic and quirky sometimes and he tells bad jokes. On the other hand, he's very loyal to those he likes, particularly his friends and will be there whenever they need him. He has a need to fix things and can be very empathetic, if he wants. It seems that he always find the good in people - even the marks. He is sensitive and gets easily offended by what others say about him. As a child he was pretty much ignored, with a father always in jail or on the run and a mother who liked to fool around. So he has a strong need to connect with people and form a relationship, because he never had anyone there for him. As soon as Deaq became his partner, he was trying to form a bond. He is very charismatic and likeable, to women for his sex appeal; but also to men, because people sense he's a good guy and that he is someone that both -men and women- can relate to. Van doesn't ever want to grow up. He is like a kid and that is one of the points what everyone loves about him. Even when he's lying to the mark, there's a part of him that is being truthful and they can feel it.

  

Deaqon "Deaq" Hayes (played by Bill Bellamy)  

Deaq is an old L.A. gang banger from way back, who turned his life around and became a cop with the NYPD. When news of his brother's death got to him, he headed back to his old stomping ground for a little eye for an eye. There, he met up with his brother's partner, Van; and Billie, where he got the satisfaction of taking down his brother's killer and then Billie gave him an offer he just couldn't refuse. Deaq is a contrast to Van, they don't share many characteristics and have different tastes for movies, music and women, but agree that what´s good is taking down the bad. Deaq is the more serious guy, he doesn't like talking about his life or his problems and always wants to manage them by himself. He often points out, that he likes to work alone and that he have principles. But the death of Van's partner and Deaq's brother, André, brings both close together and in fact they become true friends.

 

Wilhemina "Billie" Chambers (played by Tiffani Thiessen) 

  Billie is a lieutenant at the LAPD and in charge of an undercover division, The Candy Store. She's an exceptional cop, but like most, she has some secrets that she would prefer stayed buried. She operates on a "need to know only basis" and she alone determines what everyone needs to know. Billie never talks with Van and Deaq about her past or about her private life. She was a former herion addict, and she wants to keep it a secret. She has a great relationship with her boss, Bob Parish, and she convinced him to back up her idea of the Candy Store. She wants to catch thegenerals, no longer running after the foot soldiers. Billie doesn't have many friends, but is very protective of the ones she has like Alexa or Nat and she's very concerned about Van and Deaq. Van thinks she is a lesbian because the movie "Bullit" is the reason that Billie became a cop and in fact, her sexuality is unknown. 

 

Aquarius (played by Big Boy): 

 Aquarius is an old friend of Deaq from his gang banging days of his youth, he still travels down that side of the road while Deaq has become a cop. Aquarius is Deaqon's link to the streets, if the Candy Store needs information or credibility, he's the one they turn to. But he's not like all criminals, he has a sense of right, wrong and really wrong. While he might be involved with illegal activities, he doesn't cross certain lines, for instance, he won't sell drugs. Aquarius is a good man at heart and tries to help Van and Deaq out where he can.
