Brooklyn nine-nine saw the adventures of NYPD’s 99th Ward, both in crime and in their personal lives. Each character had their individual strengths and interests, and a lovable example is how Jake Peralta admits how he really got into the Harry potter pounds, much to his girlfriend-later-wife, Amy’s. So it would be likely that the two would discuss the Patronus that each of their colleagues would have.
In Harry potter, a Patronus is a charm that physically takes the form of an animal that most reflects the personality of the caster. With the 99th Quarter full of quirky and entertaining personalities, there’s bound to be an array of unique bosses. But which do Jake and Amy (or the fans) think best describe their coworkers?
ten Jake Peralta: Dolphin
Detective Jake Peralta is the main protagonist of the series. At the start of the first season, he’s a brilliant detective but also very immature and brash. Thanks to the support of his peers, he soon grew both as a detective and as a person. However, even as he grows more mature, Jake still retains his fun side and finds joy in things like the Jimmy Jab games and his all-time favorite movie. Die hard.
For his Patronus, a dolphin would suit him better; just like Jake, they are fun and free-spirited animals, but also extremely intelligent. Dolphins are very protective of themselves, as well as others at risk, which was also seen in Jake, who is very protective not only of his loved ones, but also of those he believes to be innocent. While a dolphin is a perfect fit for Jake, he might not be too happy to have such a cute animal for a Patronus.
9 Amy Santiago: Otter
Amy Santiago is an equally intelligent but also much more mature detective than Jake (who would later become her husband). She’s a hard worker, and due to her desire to become a captain and growing up with seven brothers, she has a rather competitive streak that can border on aggression.
For Amy, many fans might agree that her Patronus would be similar to that of harry potter Hermione Granger, who has an otter for her Patronus. As fans of both franchises can attest, Amy and Hermione have a number of things in common – they are both teachers’ pets from the start, they are very organized and, more importantly, they are all. both extremely intelligent and driven. So it seems fitting that Amy has the same Patronus as Hermione, who is considered one of the most powerful Patronuses in Harry potter.
8 Charles Boyle: mongrel dog
Never far from Jake’s side Brooklyn nine-nine is her best friend, Charles Boyle. Eccentric foodie with sometimes questionable tastes, Charles is a hard-working detective who dislikes conflict and is extremely loyal to his loved ones and loved ones (especially Jake).
Due to his devoted loyalty and passion (as well as a great love of food), it seems fitting that Charles’s Patronus is some sort of dog. The Patronus is likely to be a mongrel dog, as Charles adopts a number of rescue dogs over the seasons.
7 Rosa Diaz: Tiger
Robust and independent, Rosa is not someone to play with. A friend of Jake’s at the police academy, Rosa may prefer her own business, but she takes their friendships very seriously and is kinder to those she loves dearly.
Due to her strength, both physical and personal, there is no doubt that Rosa’s Patronus would be a fierce and powerful creature. Tigers are solitary by nature, but tigresses are very protective of their young, who are basically loved ones. This perfectly reflects Rosa – she might prefer to be alone, but she is more than willing to fight for those she loves.
6 Terry Jeffords: Bear
Sergeant (later Captain) Terry Jeffords is the muscle of the precinct, but that doesn’t mean he’s not smart. Terry is a loving family man and also the natural parental figure of the team, looking after his team as if they were his own children, as well as his own three daughters.
Due to his immense strength and muscular physique, Terry would need a strong and imposing animal to make his Patronus equal. A bear is perfect for Terry because it reflects not only his strength and size, but also Terry’s strong fatherly instinct and his loving and gentle side.
5 Raymond Holt: Eagle
Pragmatic Raymond Holt becomes the precinct’s new captain in the very first episode. Initially a challenge for the more immature Jake, the two soon begin to respect and learn from each other.
For his Patronus, Holt would most likely have an animal like the eagle. Eagles are strong, intelligent and efficient – reflecting both Holt’s personality, his work ethic, and the difficult journey he took to rise through the ranks to become captain (and later deputy commissioner). Additionally, he would want a simple, low-maintenance, modest animal with eagles considered very worthy of these traits.
4 Gina Linetti: Phoenix
A character who is gone Brooklyn nine-nine too soon, Gina is the civil administrator of the compound. Sarcastic and superficial, Gina has proven to be a strong ally of the precinct and, in particular, of Holt due to her observation, craftsmanship and straightforward honesty.
Unlike Holt, amateur dancer Gina loves sparkle, showmanship and “pizzazz,” so her Patronus would naturally live up to that. While phoenixes are a rare Patronus, they have the right amount of wow factor, strength, and sparkle to suit her personality. Additionally, Gina survived a rather nasty bus crash and started a very successful new career later in life – both of which may symbolize the rebirth of a phoenix.
3 Michael Hitchcock: Goat
Hitchcock and Scully are the two lazy detectives at the station, both of whom are happier sleeping at their desks than doing police work. However, they both have proven to be excellent detectives, especially if there is food involved.
Goats are notorious for eating anything in front of them and given the amount of junk food Hitchcock eats, in addition to subconsciously gulping down his goldfish, a goat would be a perfect fit for Hitchcock’s Patronus. Plus, goats are rather hardy creatures, and Hitchcock seems to casually survive all the serious but mysterious injuries he somehow sustains.
2 Norm Scully: Orc
Hitchcock and Scully are brilliant characters because they work well together, but also individually. While Hitchcock is more openly confident, Scully is the softer of the two and more susceptible to fear than his carefree yet creepy partner.
One thing is for sure, due to being easily confused, Scully would need his Patronus to be easy to follow. As a result, it would have to be a large animal. An orca would be a suitable Patronus for Scully, not only because of its size, but because of its normally gentle nature, large appetite, intelligence when hunting for food, and whale song, the latter reflecting the extraordinary opera song of Scully.
1 Kevin Cozner: Owl
Classics professor Kevin is just as straight as her loving husband Holt, one of the reasons they are couple goals in Brooklyn nine-nine. Kevin initially disliked cops due to Holt’s past experiences with his co-workers. But over time the team has proven itself in many cases and Kevin quickly became attached to them.
Like Holt, Kevin’s Patronus is said to be a fast and efficient animal that makes little noise. Owls are not only quick creatures, but they are often associated with wisdom and knowledge. So, due to his college education in classics, an owl would be a very suitable Patronus for Kevin.
