Declan Gage is a recurring character in Law & Order: Criminal Intent. He was one of the first criminal profilers.


Now he is a very unstable man, whose word and opinions cannot be taken seriously, as they are more than likely products of paranoid delusions. As well as being the profiling mentor to Goren, his studies were once considered very reliable and respected among his colleagues, but a mental breakdown changed all of that. Goren is the only person who puts any stock in his opinions.

He mistreated his own daughter, because he wished he could have had a son, which he saw in Goren turning her into a serial killer just to get his attention. This led to a break-up with Goren.

He later teams up with Nicole Wallace to kill Frank Goren and later kills her to free Goren of the three people in Goren's life he viewed as poison, including himself. Jo Gage's refusal to see him was the trigger of this. He frames Goren for the murders to make him fight back and even sets himself up as one of Nicole's victims to help sell the story. He is eventually exposed and arrested for the murders.

He was tried and convicted of all murder charges against him (including Nicole's) and was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole in maximum security.
