Temperance BrennanPlayed by: Emily Deschanel
Dr. Temperance Brennan isn't exactly a people person. She's learning as much as she can from her partnership with Booth, but this doctor truly excels within the world of science.
Brennan, nicknamed "Bones" for how often she works with skeletons, is a forensic anthropologist at the Jeffersonian Institution in Washington D. C.
She's also a best-selling novelist and relies on advice from her best friend and fellow co-worker, forensic artist Angela Montenegro.
Brennan: No, no one offers giraffes. The archaic Catholic wedding ritual is important to you, and even as an Atheist, I can see the beauty in it. Plus, I speak Latin.
