Omar Little in HBO's THE WIRE. I seriously hate cop/detective dramas, but this show is possibly the best TV show ever made.
Omar: gay, thugged-out gangster but with a code: He never robs from normal citizens--only people in "the game" aka drug trade or if they hurt his friends or lovers. He doesn't cuss and takes his grandma to church once a month.
Seriously EVERYONE is scared of Omar. When he comes to rob stash houses, shotgun in hand in his trenchcoat, the people just THROW their bags of drugs out.
I don't think he is a GOOD person, but just EXTREMELY interesting and one of the many reasons this show is amazing. Everyone is a shade of grey in this show...no one is perfect, which is what most cop/detective dramas do.
