Ricky "Buddha" Ortiz Played by Juan-Pablo Raba

Unflappable, loyal, and good-hearted, Ortiz grew up in a large family in Albuquerque, New Mexico, raised by first-generation immigrants from Mexico. On the team, he’s the buffer between Graves and Caulder. He keeps the peace with an even keel – hence his nickname, “Buddha”. Ortiz not only found a mentor in Rip, but Rip was also responsible for introducing Ortiz to his wife, Jackie. After Rip’s shooting, Ortiz is pushed to the limit and his anger threatens to cloud his judgment.
