Monsters exist. Most of us just can't see them because we couldn't handle it. That's the premise of Special Unit 2. Detective Kate
Benson is one of the few people who can see these creatures. So she's transferred to "Special Unit 2", a part of the Chicago police department created to deal with the
threat. It's explained that the monsters, or links, are actually the "missing links". Confusing? Why of course, it's science fiction.
The links are anything from
gargoyles to gnomes to werewolves but not vampires, that would be silly. Kate gets partnered up with a rough around the edges cop, Nick O'Malley. His last partner was
killed in the line of duty so he takes great pleasure in killing links. One of the other main characters is a gnome, Carl who plays informant to the squad.
