Hank - Hank Schrader - Netflix

Henry R. “Hank” Schrader is a fictional character in the AMC drama series Breaking Bad. He is portrayed by Dean Norris and was created by series creator Vince Gilligan. Hank is the brother-in-law of main character Walter White, and is a DEA agent in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Throughout the series, he leads the investigation of the methamphetamine cook “Heisenberg” — unaware that the elusive drug kingpin is his own brother-in-law. Hank is also faced with numerous threats from the rival drug cartels which take a toll on Hank's mental health as the series progresses, and eventually starts taking more extreme measures to find “Heisenberg” and arrest him. Hank's character development over the course of the series and Norris' performance have been critically acclaimed.

Hank - Background - Netflix

Hank is a special agent with the DEA, where he rose through the ranks to become the supervisor of all investigations handled by his Albuquerque office, under the watchful eye of ASAC George Merkert (Michael Shamus Wiles) and SAC Ramey. He is married to Marie (Betsy Brandt), with whom he has no children. He is close to his family-by-marriage, the Whites: Walt, his wife (and Marie's sister) Skyler (Anna Gunn), and their son Walter Jr. (RJ Mitte). In contrast with the mild-mannered Walt, Hank is extroverted, ambitious and apparently fearless, eager to take on dangerous investigations to further his career. Beneath his tough, unflappable exterior, however, he struggles with some of his own vulnerabilities: he had cold feet when it came to marrying Marie, and despite his ambition he is afraid to move outside his comfort zone at work. As a hobby, Hank home brews his own beer, which he calls “Schraderbräu”. After he gets shot by the Salamanca cousins, he spends part of season 4 taking up mineral collecting, much to Marie's chagrin.
