Delong, Vance

Appears in Promises in Death; (Spring 2060)[1]

Personal InformationEdit

  • General Description: He stood a little under average height, looked mid-forties and fit – strong through the shoulders.[2]
  • Age: mid-40's
  • Hair: Black
  • Occupation: Lieutenant NYPSD, Eighteenth squad (House 42)[3]

DescriptionEdit

  • He had a crop of wavy black hair swept back from a thin face.[4]

PersonalityEdit

  • He's straight out (direct), with an authoritative snap.[5] He's a steady-as-it-goes type and sticks mostly with the paperwork. He stands for his men but Eve Dallas found his going to Commander Whitney – to complain about her investigation – weak of him.[6]
  • He's a family man, authoritative, who likes to keep things low-key.[7] He possesses solid leadership qualities and is better suited to running a small squad than he might be in helping a larger, more complex department.[8]

Interesting FactsEdit

  • Delong said that his squad of four worked as a squad in which one detective would partner with any other detective. He said Amaryllis Coltraine was solid; a detail cop.[9]
  • He told Eve that he resented her looking at his squad during her investigation. He particularly resented that she was pushing at his squad at the memorial service at Cop Central.[10]
  • He's got twenty years on the job with more administrative interests and skills than investigative. He rarely works in the field, but does so on occasion.[11]
