Sara Sidle

30. června 2006 v 21:13 | Kačenka |  Characters
Sara Sidle was born and raised an hour and half outside San Francisco on Tamales Bay. An only child of ex-hippies running a bed and breakfast, Sara always needed a bigger stage. Everything about her as a child was outsized: her intelligence, her energy, her curiosity. Unlike her parents, Sara always maintained perfect self-discipline; the roles were reserved for Sara and her parents. They kept telling her to take it easy, and she kept coming up with business models for how they could take their B&B public and then franchise the brand. Sara was pretty muchh all-or-nothing in high school, and as talented as she was, grace didn't come with the package. The other kids resented her, and she did nothing to ease the resentment.
At eighteen, Sara found a palce where she couls be at home. She went to Harvard and enjoyed four of the best years of her life. She took as many classes as she could. She went to as many parties as she could. And she finally dated. Not well, but at least she tried. She attended graduate school in theoretical physicy before realizing that she was too frenetic for life of scholarly contemplation. One year later, she got a job in the San Francisco coroner's office and spent five years there gaining an unofficial education in forensic science. After that, she transferred to the San Francisco crine lab before come to Las Vegas.
Like any tragic figure worth her salt, Sara has a single flaw: people. She can solve any problem axcept the problem of other people and how she's supposed to relate to them. As a result, she hides in her job. She pursues her career rigorously, perhaps more so than any of the other CSI's, partly because she'e still rebelling against her parents' casual approach to social abligations, and partly becasuse ahe's afraid of what she's find out about herself if she ever slowed down.
As a CSI, Sara's specialty is materials and element analysis.
