Rossi appeared in Season 3 Episode 6 "About Face," which means David Rossi was the last person to join the team.

As he opens the door and sees Prentiss standing there, he goes back into the room while Prentiss takes his jacket to put it over her arm.

The comic's style was heavily influenced by punk visual art, and the character became quite popular, standing as a sort of cartoon mirror of the growing empowerment of women in punk rock culture.
