"Other than mopping up blood... and arresting the same piece of shit over and over, you know, not much we can do as cops."
"Jesus, Scarfe, whose side are you on?"
"I saw the Incident up close. What we can do as cops, what we can't do. Now, unless this sidearm that I'm wearing suddenly turns into some kind of magic hammer... this whole job is irrelevant."
―Rafael Scarfe and Misty Knight[src]

Rafael "Rafe" Scarfe was a hard-nosed detective of the New York City Police Department who investigated Luke Cage with his partner, Misty Knight.

Early Life

Losing a Child

Meeting Misty Knight

When Mercedes "Misty" Knight was promoted from beat cop to detective about ten years before 2015, no other detectives wanted to mentor her. Rafael Scarfe, a humorous member of the Harlem station, decided to do so, with the two becoming close friends. At a certain point Rafael's son Earl found his loaded pistol at their home, resulting in him shooting and killing himself. Misty would note that Rafael made a lot of jokes but didn't smile.

Fall from Grace

Perhaps from burnout or depression, Scarfe became corrupt, taking bribes from Cornell Stokes, a scion of the Harlem Stokes crime family. Knight remained unaware of her best friend's corruption. Scarfe recorded all his meetings and deals with Cottonmouth, as well as the corruption of his fellow officers such as Lt Perrez, a superior officer in the Harlem squadroom.

Assisting Cottonmouth

Hunting the Stolen Guns

In 2015, Scarfe and Knight were operating an operation on Cottonmouth. When a gun deal of Cottonmouth's went wrong, with his and rival gang leader Domingo Colon's men dead, Scarfe and Knight attempted to track down the surviving assailant, Chico Diaz.

When Cottonmouth's aide attempted to kill Diaz, he shot up Harlem 'Switzerland', Pop's Barber Shop. Although Pop died, Luke Cage and a young boy miraculously survived, Diaz was wounded and taken to hospital. At the hospital, Scarfe earned Diaz's trust, he used this as an opportunity to meet with Diaz and kill him for Cottonmouth. He also learned from Diaz that the person busting Cottonmouth's operations was Cage, to whom Diaz had given all his information on Cottonmouth's operations.
