— Pete at Wilson Steel[src]
Pete Baker was an officer and member of the SWAT unit of the Metropolitan Police Department. His team commander was Sergeant Daniel Rigg. At some point in his career, Pete got involved in the Jigsaw case. When Detective Eric Matthews received a message from the Jigsaw Killer at the crime scene of his latest game, he was able to deduce the location of the killer's hideout at the Wilson Steel Plant. The next day, Pete and his other teammates led by Daniel Rigg accompanied Eric and Detective Allison Kerry to the building. Rigg, who had been at Wilson Steel at one point already, instruced his men. Minutes later, they went to the plant. Following Detective Kerry's orders, Pete was the first one who broke through a side door and entered the building along with Rigg and two of their teammates.
While making their way through a storage area of the building, the men soon reached a staircase surrounded by a chain-link cage. As the door was secured by a chain, Pete cut it with a bolt clipper. Upon opening the door, the lights in the staircase suddenly turned on. Pete entered the staircase followed by his two teammates while Rigg backed them up. They tried to climb the stairs but eventually stopped when they heard a squealing sound. Seconds later, a mechanical ventriloquist puppet appeared at the head of the stairs, sitting on a tricycle and maniacally laughing at them. When the staircase was locked by a mechanism, Officer Baker tried to approach the puppet when suddenly a rigged step sprang forward and broke his shins, causing his two fellow officers to back away and receiving a lethal electric shock when they touched the cage. While they were killed in front of Sergeant Rigg's eyes, the puppet slowly rode back on the cycle. Moments later, the remaining SWAT team as well as Eric and Kerry entered the building. While the detectives went upstairs, Pete's colleagues dragged him out of the staircase. (Saw II)
Six months later Pete had recovered from his injuries and was back on duty. One night he and the rest of his team were called to an elementary school after the police had received an emergency call about an explosion. When they entered the building, they discovered that the door of one of the classrooms had been welded shut. Ultimately they managed to break through a door by using a blowpipe. Upon entering and securing the room, they found the torn up remains of Troy, a man who had been killed by a nail bomb during one of Jigsaw's games. (Saw III)
Finding Allison Kerry
Four days later, Pete and his team were called to a basement. Led by Rigg and Officer Lamanna and accompanied by Detective Mark Hoffman, they entered the area and found a chain link door. When they discovered a device connected to the door, Hoffman ordered them to send in a tactical robot before entering. Rigg ordered Pete to cut a hole in the door and sent the robot in. The robot slowly made its way through the lower floor and reached a corpse hanging from the ceiling. When the camera of the robot eventually captured the person's face, Rigg realized it was Kerry. Horrified by their discovery, Rigg broke through the door and ran to her, thinking he could still save her. However when he finally reached her, he realized that she had been killed by one of Jigsaw's traps. Seconds later the remaining SWAT officers entered the lower floor of the basement. (Saw IV)
Later that day, Pete and his team, which was now led by Lammana due to Rigg's absence, were sent to Rigg's apartment at 23 Park Place after a shooting had been reported to the police. Upon breaking through the door and storming the apartment, they found the corpse of a woman, Brenda, lying in a puddle of blood in Rigg's living room, while Rigg himself had disappeared as he was forced to play one of Jigsaw's games on his own. Shortly after the discovery of her dead body, Special Agent Peter Strahm and Special Agent Lindsey Perez as well as the CSI team arrived at the crime scene and started their investigation.
Shortly afterwards the SWAT was called to the Alexander Motel. When they arrived there, they went to room 261 on the first floor where they found the dismembered body of the motel's proprietor, Ivan Landsness, whose limbs had been torn apart by another Jigsaw trap. Again they called for the special agents and the forensic team who appeared only minutes later. While they investigated the crime scene, Lamanna found out that the room had been rented for the last six days by a lawyer named Art Blank, who had been reported missing two weeks ago. Upon informing the agents about this, he also told them that Art owned several proerties, the last known address being only to blocks away. Therefore, they went to the address and entered the basement. After securing the area, they found two labelled files left there for the agents, which led them to the conclusion that they were Jigsaw's targets.
The SWAT was called again that night and was sent to the same school where they had found Troy's corpse after someone had activated the fire alarm. When they entered the school, they soon found Morgan and Rex, who had been trapped there and whose bodies had been impaled by numerous metal spikes. While Rex had died from bloodloss after Morgan had removed the spikes, his wife was still alive. The officers called for the CSI team and Strahm and Perez again who arrived shortly afterwards. However moments after her arrival, one of the forensic investigators accidently activated a device which shot a spike in Perez' direction. Peter Strahm managed to pull her away but instead the spike pierced the head of a police photographer. (Saw IV)
Not much can be said about Pete's personality due to his short screen time.
