Name:Gil Grissom
for plentyofroom
Character's name: Dr. Gilbert "Gil" Grissom
Character's canon:CSI (television)
Canon point: Just after 406 Jackpot, on his return trip to Vegas, and assuming that he is aware of the upcoming marathon Catherine is running in at the start of 420.

Grissom is the night shift supervisor for the Las Vegas Crime Lab. He is self-taught, for the most part, in the art of forensics and holds a B.S. in biology from UCLA and a Ph.D in biology from the University of Chicago. His father died when he was nine and his mother is deaf, so he can "speak" fluent sign language. Suffering from the same genetic disorder, Grissom had elective surgery in 2003 to counter his own loss of hearing.

He is very dedicated to his work and doesn't have much of a social life outside of his coworkers, and even then, he's not that great with them. Grissom trusts evidence, not people, and tends to make enemies due to his dislike for politics and refusal to give up. His personality has shifted a bit in recent years, partly due to the loss of a new recruit on his shift, as well as the looming loss of his hearing. In this same vein, he stopped regularly carrying his sidearm, much to the dismay of Catherine, who had fought with him about it on occasion.

Grissom is fiercely loyal and protective of his team, occasionally going to bat for them even when it isn't deserved. His relationships with the men on his team are a bit more fatherly than brotherly, especially when it comes to Greg Sanders. He most often butts heads with Catherine Willows, his second-in-command in a way – the mom to his dad – and Conrad Ecklie, the day shift supervisor. He is well-read, loves roller coasters and crossword puzzles and will not stand for "guys that hit their wives, sexual assault on children and scum that deal death to kids."

Personal Inventory:
+ a brand new, extra large crossword puzzle book
+ the latest science journal
+ two rather garish Hawaiian shirts
+ a photo album with pictures of his family; a few of himself in his youth; and a collection of him with his various team members, taken on team outings, around the office and at holiday parties
+ a CD of his favorite classical music
+ a t-shirt from The Roller Coaster at New York-New York, picked up at his last visit
+ his cell phone
+ his field kit (filled with the usual investigation supplies and his sidearm)
+ a baseball cap
+ his Tahoe (and whatever was inside on his return trip)
