Darryl Morris is a San Francisco Police Department Captain and the husband of Shelia Morris. Together the couple have their two sons; Mikey and Daryl Morris Jr. and their daughter; Angie Morris. Darryl is also a family friend of the Halliwells.
Early Life Edit
Darryl was the son of Luthor Morris, who was arrested at least once in the sixties before presumably changing his ways. Darryl married Sheila and had two boys, Darryl Jr. otherwise known as "DJ" and Michael Morris otherwise known as "Mikey". At some point, Darryl became an inspector with the San Francisco Police Department and was partnered with Andy Trudeau.
For the first four seasons as well as in Season 6 Darryl's appearance hardly changed at all.
- Hair: He was clean shaven with short curly black hair. During Season 5 he sports a beard and mustache, which he shaves off towards the end of the season. He also lets his hair grow out slightly. In Season 7, Darryl grows back the beard and mustache and shaves off all the hair on his head.
- Wardrobe: Due to his job he is rarely seen outside of a police uniform or a business suit, otherwise he just wears a simple t-shirt with jeans.
Early on the series Darryl was sceptic towards magic and the supernatural, believing witches and people who believe in UFO's to be crazy. He witnesses several cases beyond the natural and begins to soften his scepticism. When he is told by Phoebe that she and her sisters are witches and that magic does exist, he takes it very well, but still prefers to remain on the sidelines. Darryl often covers for the sisters through the run of the series, helping them fight demons and other evils. He is known as a family-motivated man and is always out to do what is right.
However, due to the actions of the Cleaners, Darryl stops helping the sisters, not wanting to re-live a near-death experience. However, in the next year, he begins to soften again and helps the sisters one last time when Homeland Security, the FBI, and SWAT surrounded the manor, trying to expose them as witches. However in the years since his children have grown he has become much closer with the sisters, and has even allowed his children to still be close friends with the Halliwell children.
