As a former homicide detective, Horatio leads the team with his knowledge of the inner workings of the anatomy of a crime before it heads to the lab for dissection. On a personal level, Horatio has a teenage son (Kyle) he didn't know about until season 6. After several run-ins with the law, Horatio put Kyle to work as an intern in the morgue. You can always count on some sort of corny sentence from Horatio as he puts his sunglasses on right before the opening credits of each episode.

While the CSI's work on solving their cases, one of the most important aspects of their investigation is knowing the exact cause of death and that's where Dr. Tara Price comes in handy. As the coroner, Tara is as thorough as they get, but she clearly has some skeletons buried deep in her closet that we have yet to uncover.
