"Who?" I hear you ask?
Detective Arsala was a recurring character in Karl and Barbara Kesel's exemplary Hawk and Dove series in the late 80's early 90's. A member of the Washington Special Crimes Unit (If Metropolis can have a Task Force devoted to metahuman crimes, it only makes sense that Washington DC have one too, no?)
He was a fun character, an excellent police officer if a little eccentric, notably in his taste for Hawaiian shirts so garish, they'd make your eyes bleed!
Here, from Hawk and Dove #13, he's on his first date with Dove (He even wearing a suit for about the first time ever), it's not exactly standard first date small talk... He can't as her about her day, as she has a secret identity, and he spent the day examining corpses in the morgue... so they end up talking shop...
I love this little moment
Gotta love the logic there, no?
Sadly, and as happened so often to my favourite characters, he met a nasty and pointless end. Specifically in his case, in the clusterf&ck that was the revamped end of "Armageddon 2001", when Monarch blasted his face off just to show how much of a ballbreaker he was.. Grrrr. :(
