His part in Sons of Anarchy was the Chief of the Charming Police Department, but is also corrupt in that he deals with the Sons of Anarchy whom he sees as a benefit to the town, because the Sons successfully keep drugs and violence out of Charming, and protect the population from many other unwanted things like ruthless developers, such as Jacob Hale Jr.
Unser is a native of the small Northern Californian town of Charming and is in his 50s. He was a U.S. Marine and served during the Vietnam War. When he returned, he joined the police force and is now Chief of the Charming Police Department. He also owned Unser Shipping, a trucking company, though he later sold it. He is “married to a dark-skinned woman” named Della, and they have two daughters. He is also suffering from colon cancer, and uses marijuana for pain relief. He is corrupt and an ally of the Sons of Anarchy, a local motorcycle gang. However, most of the illegal activity he partakes in is beneficial for the town, as he greatly cares for its residents.
