Brass spent 20yrs working his way up to homicide detective
in New Jersey. he transferred out of homicide and out of new
jersey 10 yrs ago and came out to Las Vegas. he eventually came
to run csi department, more as an administrator then as an
Brass was born into a middle-class family in Newark. When the
riots hit in the mid-sixties, Brass was in college. Something
about the injustice made him decide on a career in law
enforcement. He approached hid job with the zeal of a reformer
and at first Brass gained a great deal of notoriety for his
tenacious incvestigative style. Unfortunately, tenacious
investigators tend to be indiscriminate. When they see someone
do something wrong . they go after the crime. Even if the
criminals are cops. And that's what happened to brass He became
a Serpico-like figure in New Jersey. He cleaned up the
department and the effort cost him his marriage and what little
relationship he had with his daughter. When the dust cleared.
Brass headed for Second Chance City, landing at CSI. He could
get his fix to the investigative process without having to
expand any personal capitol. His life gently slid into strip
bars and J and B doubles and was well enough until a young
newbie named Holly Gribbs showed up. Her death cost Brass his
job and in some ways his peace of mind. Since shed died, he's
been transferred back to homicide. He's not sure if he likes it,
but it's familiar and iot's easy, and that'll do for the short
term. THe long term is irrelevant for Brass, because he stopped
believing in the future long ago.
