Being a vigilante
Ted is an accomplished and well known boxer. His name in the ring was Wildcat. Three years before the start of the series' present day, he became a vigilante. He watched over the Glades, patrolling the crime and poverty infested district of the city trying to keep crime at bay. He established a hidden base which was used to store his equipment, weapons including brass knuckles, knives, batons and nunchaku. At some point he came across Isaac Stanzler, a troubled young man. He eventually took on Isaac as a partner hoping to change the boy's life in a positive direction. When he and Isaac were pursuing a criminal, a member of the Calebras' gang, their chase led them to a closed nightclub. Isaac reached their destination first and beat the man to death. This caused Ted to retire his vigilante career: he closed down his base, hung up his mask and cut all ties with Isaac.
Ted is intelligent, has a sense of justice, honor and good morals, becoming a vigilante to keep crime in the Glades in check. Ted is also a highly empathic individual as he runs his gym to give his students chances to let off steam and control their emotions.
Despite his dislike of crime, killing his enemies is a line that Ted would never cross, Ted is also short tempered as he does not like being wrongfully accused.
