Maggie Bell is a special agent of the New York Field Office on FBI.


Maggie is an agent who, her bosses and peers agree, is marked for success. Born into a multigenerational law enforcement family in the Midwest, Maggie has developed a sophisticated skill set: high emotional IQ, intellectual rigor, bracing candor. She engages immediately, commits deeply, to the people she works with and is protecting. Maggie came to New York with conviction - and is working incredibly hard not to let a recent personal tragedy derail her new life, personally or professionally.

Maggie comes from a multi-generation family of cops. Her father was a cop for thirty years (An Imperfect Science). She was married to Jason Bell, an investigative journalist who died some time before the pilot episode.

In the pilot episode, it is established that she has been with the New York City field office for three years. Previously, she was a police officer in Indiana. She was working a kidnapping case in a joint investigation with the FBI. Despite the case ending badly, her talents were recognized and she was recommended to join the FBI (Family Man).

Maggie's instincts in the field and the interrogation room are well-known to her colleagues. OA once joked, "You have a way of cutting through emotion and getting people to do what you want" (This Land is Your Land).
