CSI:Crime Scene Investigation's Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger)
CSI:Crime Scene Investigation's Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox)
CSI:Crime Scene Investigation's Detective Sofia Curtis (Louise Lombard)
Sofia was introduced in the season five episode "Formalities". It is later explained in the season six episode "Bodies In Motion" that, though she qualified to become a detective, the sheriff "pulled her papers" and assigned her to CSI due to her lab skills. Due to a struggle in office politics, Conrad Ecklie demoted her from acting day shift supervisor (season 5 episode "Mea Culpa") to night shift; she subsequently thought about quitting. Gil Grissom talked her into staying, and in season six she resumed her original career path and returned to police work as a detective, like her mother. She originally took a position in Boulder City, but transferred back to Las Vegas in the first episode of season six. In the two part episode A Bullet Runs Through It, she believes that she may have accidentally shot and killed Deputy Daniel Bell in a wild shoot out with drug dealers. The shooting causes her great anxiety and emotional stress, but forensic investigation eventually proved that Captain Jim Brass was the accidental shooter (the officer had unwittingly stood up in Brass's line of fire). Later, Curtis is horrified to discover that she had actually watched an undercover cop die on camera from carbon monoxide poisoning. Though she takes it more calmly than the incident with Deputy Bell, she still feels responsible for the officer's death (season 7 episode "Monster in the Box").At the beginning of the seventh season, Sofia becomes a main cast member.
CSI:MIAMI's Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter)
CSI:MIAMI's Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter)
CSI:MIAMI's Dr.Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander)
She has had to autopsy several people she knew, including CSI Tim Speedle (episode 301, "Lost Son") and Officer Aaron Jessop (episode 425, "One of Our Own").
Alexx is very maternal by nature and looks out for her co-workers as though they were her children. This is evident in season 4 of the show when she continues to care for and worry about Ryan Wolfe after he is injured by a nail gun. She prescribes him antibiotics after he experiences vision troubles (episode 410, "Shattered"). She is the first person he sounds out as the possible mole in the lab and is hurt by his suspicion. In the episode Nothing To Lose from season three, Alexx is held hostage by a serial killer.
She is superficially injured when a rocket is launched at the courthouse where she is preparing to give testimony. Alexx immediately begins to treat the wounded while the police attempt to discover the reason for the attack (episode 514, "No Man's Land"). When Eric Delko is shot in the head not long afterwards, she and her colleagues at the crime lab express great concern over his well-being. Alexx is the first to point out that because of the nature of the injury, Delko, if he should recover, might not be the same person they knew before (episode 515, "Man Down").
She is also seen addressing her own children in a very natural maternal way when talking about "bad people" to them after a case involving a child.
She often comments that the victims were too young to die. It is nearly her mantra.
CSI:MIAMI's Natalia Boa Vista (Eva LaRue)
At the end of season four it is revealed that Natalia is an FBI informant in the lab, assigned to help build a case against Horatio Caine and his team. However, when questioned by her co-workers, she claims to have only reported information that made the Miami Dade Crime Lab look good. It is eventually revealed that the negative information that was soiling the lab in fact came from another source, State Attorney Monica West (episode 425, "One of Our Own").
In episode 508, "Darkroom", CSI Ryan Wolfe finds a stash of photographed girls. Natalia discovers that one of the pictures is of her sister Anya. DNA from a crime scene reveals that Anya is indeed one of the women that the CSIs are looking for. It is also revealed that, in addition to Anya, Natalia has another sister named Cristine. At the end of the episode, Horatio manages to locate and rescue Anya, and the sisters are happily reunited. Eva LaRue's sister Nika was offered the role of Anya, Natalia's sister, but she declined. Instead she played a reporter. In fact, the episode was based on the real-life convicted serial killer William Richard Bradford; Nika LaRue was one of the women photographed by Bradford for his collection. She was no. 3 (out of 54 women) on the poster, created by the LAPD. Bradford would photograph women he met in bars under the guise that he would assist their modeling careers.In episode the"Internal Affairs", Nick Townsend is found murdered. All the evidence is pointing to Natalia as the killer. Horatio, the night-shift lab and Calleigh's ex-boyfriend Detective Jake Berkeley must find evidence to clear Natalia. Natalia admits to Berkeley that she was outside Nick's house. She was handcuffed by Jake at the beginning of the episode. Earlier on, Nick and Valera went on a lunch date. Valera ignored Natalia's warnings about Nick being dangerous so Natalia went there to watch over her. She sees Nick trying to force Valera into the bedroom and watches Valera push him and run out of the house. Thinking that she killed Nick, Valera tries to admit to Jake but he denies her confession. It is later discovered that another man murdered Nick over a pair of earrings that Nick had stolen from a crime scene (which linked the man's wife to said crime). At the end of the episode, Natalia leans on Horatio's shoulder and sobs quietly as they both look at a picture of Nick and Natalia in happier days, a reminder that Nick had not always been the abusive person he had become.
CSI:NY's Stella Bonasera (Melina Kanakaredes)
Due to events in "Heart of Glass", it is suggested that she may be HIV-positive, but a test later on reveals she is HIV-negative.Stella is a half-Greek, half-Italian orphan (yet identifies more with being Greek than Italian) who grew up at St. Basil's Orphanage. She left when she was eighteen (episode 115, "Til Death Do We Part"). Her parents remain unknown at this time. Mac teases her about just "know[ing] all that stuff," but most of what she knows about her Greek heritage she learned from a book.
CSI:NY's Lindsay Monroe (Anna Belknap)
Lindsay abruptly leaves a crime scene almost as soon as she arrives in "Silent Night," forcing Stella to cover for her sudden absence. Lindsay is initially tight-lipped about her actions to Stella, but later comes clean about memories of the decade-old murder that she survived, which were triggered by her arrival at the crime scene and a trip to the morgue in which she saw the bodies of young women on the autopsy table.
Lindsay was bitten by a cobra that escaped from a victim's car at a crime scene (episode 310, "Sweet 16"). This was primarily a device used to cut back on Anna Belknap's screentime during her pregnancy.
In episode 314, "The Lying Game," Lindsay takes a leave of absence to return to Bozeman; she is to testify for the state against a suspect arrested for the murder of her friends (The leave of absence coincided with Anna Belknap's real-life maternity leave from the show.). She is shown on the witness stand in episode 318, "Sleight Out Of Hand," struggling with recalling the events when Danny Messer suddenly enters the courtroom. Buoyed by his presence, she regains her composure and confidently gives her testimony, positively identifying the suspect as the gunman. Thanks in part to Lindsay's testimony, the suspect is found guilty.
CSI:NY's Aiden Burn (Vanessa Ferlito)
Aiden's murder devastated Mac and the rest of the team, particularly Detective Danny Messer. Though she at one time had joked that she was way out of his league, Aiden and Danny shared a very close, sibling-like relationship. Stella Bonasera also wistfully told Lindsay, about Aiden, "You would have liked her."
CSI:NY's Dr.Peyton Driscoll (Claire Forlani)
Peyton is currently romantically involved with CSI lead investigator Mac Taylor. The difficulty they face in maintaining their relationship while remaining professional on the job has been demonstrated many times. Plans for dinners and time together are constantly being interrupted by the demands of their jobs (episodes 301, "People With Money," 316, "Heart of Glass," et al); on Mac's birthday, the workload is such that Peyton's birthday party for him is reduced to her buying him a cupcake from one of the office vending machines and lighting a candle atop it.Mac initially wishes to keep their relationship a secret, despite Peyton's desire to be more open about it. She is deeply hurt when he yanks her hand away from his face when he sees Stella approaching, and when he accidentally calls her "Claire," the name of his deceased wife (episode 311, "Raising Shane"), she walks away from him, seemingly for good. Mac reconciles with her shortly after, acknowledging that while he may still be a bit gun shy about their relationship, he wants to make it work (episode 312, "Silent Night"). By episode 316 ("Heart of Glass"), they have revealed their romantic connections to their colleagues, and no one has expressed any objections.Peyton is hurt, though not seriously, when she is slammed against the coroner's van by two men outside the lab, who then steal the body of a man that the MEs had just retrieved from a crime scene. The body is later fished out of the Hudson River, still in the body bag. To Peyton's shock, the man is alive, though in a permanent vegetative state. She is distressed about how she could have pronounced the man dead in the first place, but is reassured, by Mac, that her pronouncement was perfectly reasonable under the circumstances; it is eventually determined that the victim had been intentionally placed in a state of hibernation by a combination of chemicals administered to him. (episode 320, "What Schemes May Come").When Mac is accused of fatally pushing kidnap/murder suspect Clay Dobson off a roof, Peyton stands firmly beside him throughout his ordeal. She counsels him to visit jailed former Detective Dean Truby to reinforce the point that Taylor was right in arresting Truby (episode 323, "...Comes Around").In the season 3 finale, "Snow Day", Peyton announces to Mac that she is taking a trip to London for 10 days to attend a medical examiners' conference. She invites him to accompany her, citing that he has not taken a vacation day in years. At first, Mac is uncertain if he wants to go, but at the end of the episode, he informs Stella and Flack that he is going to London.
