Brian Smith (alias The Atlantic Coast Rapist) is a serial rapist.


Brian originally lived in Atlanta, Georgia, where he raped several women, all the while saying the line, "Tell me you love me, mommy." Detective Rollins was trying to capture him before she transferred to Special Victims Unit in New York. He moved to New York where he continued to rape women. Brian always targeted a young blonde woman for his rapes.

Because of his yin-yang tattoo and the fact he has a twin brother, Gabriel Thomas, with the same tattoo, he was able to get Gabriel arrested for the crimes. After evidence and timelines don't match up, Rollins goes undercover as a jogger, with Detectives Amaro and Fin nearby. Amaro loses Rollins, who is assaulted by Brian. However, Amaro, Fin, and the other detectives find Rollins and rescue her. Rollins eventually interrogates Brian alone and gets him to confess to all of the rapes. Gabriel is then set free.
