This may seem like your atypical battle, seeing as its two human characters with no extraordinary powers, but I think that makes it more thought provoking. Dexter Morgan is noted as being an expert in sneak and assault tactics/Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He is adept with weapons and can adapt to a high pressure situation easily; not severely affected by emotions. Temperance "Bones" Brennan is said to be trained in three types of martial arts, is familiar with use of firearms and is also capable of effectively compartmentalizing emotions and logical thought. That being said, I wondered how the two of them would fair against each other in a bare one on one fight. I realize each person has many other skill sets, (e.g. dexter always has a syringe of drugs ready to pounce on his assailants, bones sometimes carries a gun) however I felt including these would present a very one-sided unfair advantage in different situations. I am mostly interested in seeing who would be victorious in a match of hand to hand combat. conditions: empty, average, night-lit parking garage. each has no knowledge of the other's abilities There are two wooden staffs available as additional weapons. This is a high pressure fight (dexter has to protect his secret, Bones has to protect her life) It is my opinion that Bones would take down Dexter since she has familiarity with more than one type of martial arts. However, if Dexter can get the jump on her using the environment of the dim garage, then it can go the other way.
