Donald Ressler is a veteran field agent who is a stickler for procedure. Ressler's greatest asset is his single-minded, almost obsessive devotion to his work. He spent five years on a FBI task force obsessively pursuing Reddington, which resulted in his fiancee breaking off their engagement. He despises having to work with a criminal like Reddington, but he acknowledges that Reddington does get results. Initially he distrusts Elizabeth Keen and her connection to Reddington, but eventually comes to respect and work well with her. After he was shot by Anslo Garrick, he reignited his relationship with his former fiancée, Audrey Bidwell. Unfortunately she was killed by Mako Tanida, after which Ressler learned she was pregnant with his child. Ressler develops a addiction for pain pills after getting shot and losing his girlfriend and unborn child. When he is in Alaska with Liz on a case, he purposely breaks his thumb to get a new prescription for his pain pills. Ressler is abducted and his pills were taken from him. He starts to go into withdrawal in the woods. Liz finds out about his addiction when she finds Ressler's badge, ID, gun, and his pills. Liz wants to help him fight his addiction and after they have been into a car accident, he is flushes his pills down the drain. Ressler is made the interim head of the Task Force when Red and Liz go on the run and he is in charge of leading the manhunt. Once he caught Liz, Cooper is reinstated and Ressler goes back to working as a field agent and partners up with Samar.

quote of the moment ღ
"A Mongolian peasant gets brought into an office where an important man offers him a million dollars on one condition – that he press the red button on his desk.
And he tells the poor man that if he presses the button, an old man in Mongolia drops dead. Now, he won’t tell him why, only that his death is good for the people.
So, he pushes the button, takes the money and goes home. But he’s haunted by what he did. He can’t spend any of the money and, eventually, he commits suicide.
A man recently told me that story. Said we all have a Mongolian peasant in our lives – something we’ve done that we’re ashamed of – and that the minute someone finds out what that is,
why, he can make you do anything. Say anything, confess to anything. Either to cover it up or to atone."

"Funny thing, you know, I used to be a real boy scout. Strictly by the book. Followed all the rules. Then this thing happens. My fiancée, she gets killed, murdered right in front of me.
And the guy who did it, the only way I could get him was to forget all the rules. It was a real crossroads for me. Had to choose which path to take.
The thing is, I think it’s real important for you to know, the path I took, there wasn’t any rules. And the thing I realized was that sometimes that’s okay."
