Kimball Cho is a former member of the CBI team, along with Teresa Lisbon, Patrick Jane, Wayne Rigsby and Grace Van Pelt. He is a very serious person who always follows cases "by the book" like Teresa Lisbon, as opposed to Jane's unique take on investigations. He mainly acts as the interrogator, because he is very persuasive and an excellent listener. He had a very beautiful girlfriend, who appeared in episode Blood In, Blood Out, where we learn a lot about his past. He has unsuspected skills as a ladies' man which he displays in the episode Crimson Casanova. He's always careful with his money and is a bit superstitious, as we see in the episode Red Rum

BiographyEdit

Before the start of the seriesEdit

When he was younger, Cho was a member of a gang called the Avon Park Playboys; his nickname in the gang was "the Iceman". After spending some time in juvenile detention, he apparently got on the straight and narrow and joined the U.S. Army where he served in Asia with the 1st Special Forces Group.

Season 6Edit

After the death of Red John at Patrick's hands and the shutdown of CBI, Cho joined the FBI.

PersonalityEdit

While he is a very serious, by the book person he is very willing to follow Jane's investigations and he is very behind Lisbon, almost unwilling to follow anyone except Lisbon or Jane. He is also very good at dealing with Jane's collateral damage and is a first class interrogator, as he lays down all the facts and then the possible scenarios that could have played out in a sympathetic way.

TriviaEdit

  • According to Van Pelt (season 1, episode 8) Cho hates pineapple.
  • As seen in the episode His Red Right Hand (season 2, episode 8) he avoids drinking most alcohol; in this episode everyone has drinks in memory of their colleagues who have died but while Cho raises the glass, he doesn't drink from it, but drinks water instead. In Red Scare, Cho sniffs the wine offered at the end of the episode, but then sets his glass down on the table.
  • Cho seems to enjoy reading as he is seen reading books in a variety of episodes.
  • He used to work for a Narcotics division. (Devil's Cherry)
  • According to a character list from the Pilot script, Cho was originally named "Kendall Cho", came "from twenty generations of farmers" and had a family.
  • He is unexpectedly skilled as a ladies' man which he displays in the episode Crimson Casanova.
  • He is a bit superstitious as we see in the episode Red Rum.
  • In My Blue Heaven, Cho tells Jane after seeing him for the first time in two years that he had been an FBI agent for 5 months after going to Quantico.
  • He is the only character, along with Teresa Lisbon and the protagonist Patrick Jane, who has appeared in every single episode of the series so far.

  • Girlfriend?

    • I think they meant that doctor(?) from Blood in, Blood Out - an Elise Chaye. Played by Sandrine H...
    • Yes they probably did mean her, as Cho was loudly proclaiming that he was going to deal with whoever hurt his girlfriend.
