Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) is the homicide captain on the hit series "CSI." While not officially part of the CSI forensics team, Captain Brass assists in CSI investigations by rounding up suspects and witnesses and handling interrogations. Brass prefers being "the muscle" and does not deal with the scientific aspects of cases.
Jim's only family is a daughter, a hooker, who is not actually his biological child and only wants money from him. The CSI crew has become his family over the years, which is evident when Captain Brass gives CSI Supervisor Gil Grissom (William Petersen) his power of attorney. Grissom used the power of attorney to authorize a life-saving surgery saving Captain Brass's life after he was shot.
Captain Brass's tough attitude haunted him when CSI Warrick Brown (Gary Dourdan) was acquitted for murder. Brass told Warrick, "I hope you remember how lucky you are." Warrick was shot and killed just hours later.
"Judge Cohen, you're under arrest for obstructing justice, tampering with State's evidence and violating seven articles of scumbag."
