|~ Orville Underwood taunting Detectives Elliot Stabler and Fin Tutuola.|
Orville Underwood is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Possessed". He is a pedophile who kidnaps children and forces them to perform in child pornography.
Underwood is a pedophile who kidnaps children and makes them perform in child pornography videos, telling them that a secret organization called "Coventry", which does not actually exist, will kill them and their families if they do not do as he tells them.
His favorite victim is a girl named Larissa Welch, whom he calls "Brandy" and forces to perform in a series of videos that become extremely popular among pedophiles on the Internet. Larissa eventually escapes from Underwood with help from her fellow captive Daniel Brooks. A few days later, Larissa sees Underwood on the street and has him arrested, but he manages to get acquitted for lack of evidence. He then becomes a lawyer, claiming to be a champion of the falsely accused. In his spare time, he writes child pornography novels about the "Brandy" character. He also develops emphysema and becomes dependent upon an oxygen tank.
Years later, another pedophile named Eldon Balogh, who is obsessed with the "Brandy" videos, tracks Underwood down and forces him to tell her who she really is, and beats him up because he is jealous that Underwood raped her as a child. Balogh then beats and rapes Larissa, who is now an adult.
Special Victims Unit Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler investigate Larissa's rape, eventually arresting Underwood and Balogh, When Balogh is killed in prison, Benson and Stabler focus on Underwood, whose semen is on pictures of Larissa as a child found in Balogh's apartment. They interrogate him for 24 hours, but are forced to let him go when they cannot find direct evidence linking him to Larissa's assault. On his way out of the SVU precinct, he runs into Larissa and leers at her that she is still beautiful.
Assistant District Attorney Gillian Hardwicke tries Underwood for possessing and distributing child pornography. Underwood represents himself, and successfully argues that, since there are no visual images of children in his books, they are not technically child pornography and are therefore protected speech under the First Amendment. As he leaves the courtroom, he taunts Hardwicke and Larissa.
Benson and Stabler eventually find Daniel, who is so traumatized by Underwood's abuse that he has become a pedophile and child pornographer himself, and arrest him. When Larissa visits him in prison, he tells her that Underwood is still kidnapping children and using them to create child pornography. She then tells Benson and Stabler, who go to Underwood's apartment to arrest him.
When they arrive, however, they find that Larissa has shot and killed him to protect a young girl whom he had kidnapped and raped. Since Larissa killed Underwood in defense of another person, she is released, and resolves to move on with her life.
