Ruben Carver is an agent with NCIS.
As any fan of the hit CBS television program well into its second decade of, to me, outstanding action drama, knows, the special agents of the Navy Criminal Investigative Service handle a very wide range of activity from theft to murder to counterintelligence and counter-terrorism. It is in the latter two matters that Ruben Carver is mostly operating.
As one of that agency's highly experienced special agents, he has worked in numerous field offices around the world but his specialty seems to be the Far East and he is quite comfortable in places like Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
While many of Carver's associates might want to think of their jobs as being federal police officer, Carver has learned the hard way that it is so much more and when going up against either those expecting millions from their treason or those fervently believing in a cause, the job calls for a whole lot more than handing out tickets and questioning suspects. It too often deals with dodging bullets and avoiding bombs and otherwise trying to stay alive long enough to do the job.
