—Nathan Pandit

Nathan Pandit is a main character appearing in Season 1 of Criminal Case, where he serves as the Chief Medical Examiner (Coroner) of the Grimsborough Police Department.


At 32 years of age, Nathan has medium black hair, and dark gray eyes concealed behind his red glasses. He has a thick moustache and a little beard on the chin. Nathan wears a light blue lab hat on top of his head. He also wears a blue v-neck T-shirt underneath a white lab coat, which has a logo on the left side that reads "Coroner" under it.

Events of Criminal Case

Nathan was introduced in The Death of Rosa Wolf.

In The Devil's PlaygroundGrace Delaney, head of the Forensics Laboratory, agreed with the Chief to dress as an Amish woman to tend for Isaac Hersberger, in order to avoid offending the Amish population during the investigation. So, in Grace's absence from Forensics, Nathan replaced her for the whole case.

Nathan's grandfather

Nathan's "grumpy old" grandfather.

In the Additional Investigation of Spring Break Massacre, Nathan accompanied the team when they went to meet Michael Fletcher in the Biology Amphitheater to hand Brutus (Michael's piranha) back to him.

In the Additional Investigation of Troubled Waters, Nathan became excited to meet Archibald Ashworth since he had heard a lot about Archibald, who seemed very eccentric and reminded Nathan of his "grumpy old" grandfather. The player accepted Nathan's request and they both then went to meet Archibald in his house. 

At the climax of There Will Be Blood, Cathy King and the Grimsborough PD threw a farewell party for the player after the player accepted a promotion to the Pacific Bay Police Department. Nathan did not hesitate to thank the player for making him realize that his job "wasn't just about dead bodies, but about living people, too."

Personal life


A photo of Nathan and Harper.

Nathan is an active member of the Orchids Fanatics, a botanic club, as mentioned by himself during the events of The Haunting of Elm Manor.

Nathan was a member of a fraternity named Phi Sigma back in college. He mentions this in the Additional Investigation of Murder on Campus.

In One Wedding and a Funeral, Nathan told the player that he is an amateur pilot.

In Snakes on the Stage, Nathan claims that he has a snake tattoo.

As of the player's promotion to Pacific Bay, Nathan's love interest is the "snake-girl" Harper Stone.


As the Chief Medical Examiner (Coroner) of the Grimsborough Police Department, Nathan has the responsibility of carefully examining and analyzing each murdered corpse, 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. It should be noted that he also conducts forensic analyses in the case that Grace is unavailable.
