|“||Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Shane Watson, and this is my little buddy, Holmes. Don't be rude, say hi!||„|
30 years of age, Shane has suave black hair, blue eyes, and a chiseled jawline. He normally sports a white shirt underneath a black wool waistcoat with the Pinefield PD badge pinned on the left and a black tie. Other than that, he occasionally wears black spectacles and often carries a copy of "The Principles of Psychology".
Shane is known to be analytical, obsessive, and intelligent. He likes discovering people's secrets and graphology, as well as spending time with Holmes, his pet tarantula. He also holds a doctorate degree in a psychology field. It is also known that Shane's favorite food is chicken wings, and his favorite animal is a tarantula, which—as stated above—he owns as a pet.
As the Profiler of the Pinefield Police Department, Shane has the responsibility of analyzing physical objects and/or clues that cannot be analyzed flawlessly through bio-forensics or digital analysis, but instead through psychological analysis, and to inform the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. His task-wait rates will vary depending on the difficulty of the task, but they all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.
Shane scares the player's partner with Holmes a lot and tries different things to test their fears whenever he finishes analyzing an object.
