CSI: Miami

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation took television by storm in 2000 with its innovative and cutting-edge updating of a standard series concept – in this case, the cop show. That gritty approach to crime known as forensic science made its way from Las Vegas to the streets of Florida in CSI: Miami.

Character Bio

Calleigh Duquesne photo
Calleigh Duquesne is the day shift assistant supervisor at the Miami-Dade Crime Lab.

Physical Appearance

Calleigh has long blonde hair and bright green eyes.

Personality

Calleigh is an almost eternal optimist, with a sunny disposition and a smile to match. However, this attitude does not in any way interfere with her quest to put criminals where they belong. She is pretty much universally liked by her co-workers, who sometimes remark on her being nearly "too happy". And while she does not believe in supernatural curses and the like, she does believe in karma (episode 506, Curse of the Coffin). Because of her cheery attitude and southern-belle charm many suspects have expected her to be dim too what goes on around her, but in truth she is aware of when a suspect is flirting with her or trying to trick her and she will immediately point out what they're trying to do. Even though her time as a CSI has exposed her to intense violence and gore, in season two she revealed that she has an intense fear of ants which Eric Delko helped her overcome.

Abilities

Calleigh is a ballistics specialist; originally from Darnell, Louisiana, United States Of America. She is fluent in Spanish and has a bachelor's degree in physics from Tulane University. While working for the New Orleans Police Department, she gained the nickname "Bullet Girl".

Early Life

Her parents divorced around 1992, and the separation was bitter and hostile (episode 521, Just Murdered).

Calleigh states that her mother wanted to be viewed more as a friend than an authority figure, and wistfully wonders whether a Nanny might have been a voice of reason in the house. (episode 610, CSI: My Nanny)

Season One

Calleigh is targeted by a murderer recently escaped from prison in the season 1 finale, episode 124, "Body Count." She had been instrumental in putting him away, thanks to her testimony at trial. Despite the danger, she refuses to take herself off the case, much to John Hagen's frustration. Calleigh herself brings the murderer into custody after she catches him at a gun store.

Season Four

Following Hagen's suicide in her lab at the end of season 3, Calleigh transfers out of ballistics briefly, only to return after she witnesses her successor's incompetence (episode 410, "Shattered").

Season Five

When Horatio Caine and Erik Delko go to Brazil in pursuit of murderer Antonio Riaz, Calleigh is given temporary charge of the lab. Despite the geographic distance between them, she does her best to help them in their quest for justice by identifying a substance that leads them closer to Riaz (episode 501, "Rio").

During the course of one case, while taking back roads to avoid traffic on the way back to the lab from the scene of a murder, Calleigh is nearly killed when another vehicle forced her off the road into the water. She is able to escape the sinking Hummer, and while much of the evidence gets contaminated by this incident, she and the team eventually manages to solve the case (episode 502, "Going Under"). She is also shot in the line of duty after tracking down and confronting a suspect. The Kevlar vest that she was wearing during the shooting, protects her from any serious injury (episode 509, "Going, Going, Gone").

Season Six

After having drinks with Jake, she is involved in a shooting causing her to be question by IAB (609 Stand Your Ground)

Calleigh is exploited on the internet and is cyberstalked leading to her kidnapping (episode, "615 Ambush"). She is forced to clean up crime scenes for two criminals who hold her at gunpoint, she is later rescued and taken home by Eric Delko (episode 616, "All In")

Trivia

* Calleigh's house address is 1025 Saratoga Avenue, Bal Harbour, Fl 33154. (episode 416, Deviant))
* Though her time as a CSI has exposed her to intense violence and gore, in episode 218, Wannabe, she has an intense fear of ants which Eric Delko helps her overcome.
