- "In the beginning, there was only dark. You ask me, the light's winning."
- ―Rust Cohle to Martin Hart
Rustin "Rust" Cohle is a former detective. Born in Texas and raised in Alaska, he married a woman named Claire and had a girl named Sophia with her. Sophia was tragically killed in a car accident as a child, leading to Cohle's divorce and alcoholism.
Cohle was partnered with Martin Hart in 1995. The two worked various cases, mostly revolving around the Yellow King cases together until 2002, when Cohle had an affair with Martin's wife. The two had a falling out and wouldn't speak again until 2012.
The two reconnected due to Rust's continuing pursuit of the Yellow King case. The two make their way to Errol Childress, a vile and big part of the case. Rust and Martin pursued Childress and were both wounded, but Rust managed to kill him with a shot to the head.
After healing up at the hospital, the two left, with Rust informing Martin of his near-death experiences and him feeling a connection to his dead daughter. Rust received a new faith in life and managed to be optimistic about the future.
Born in Texas, Rust and his family moved to Alaska when he was young, where he grew up. He went on to marry a woman named Claire. The two had a daughter, who was killed in a vehicular accident that led to Cohle's divorce and addiction to alcohol.
