As a former member of the Navy SEALs, Steve McGarrett is known for his tough guy, no frills demeanor. He even has "a laser focus embedded in his DNA,” according to Detective Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly. You could say he's a bit reserved when it comes to showing his emotions. But, over the past six seasons, we’ve seen an array of McGarrett’s qualities from his ninja-like resourcefulness and brut strength to his softer, more nurturing side.
