Temperance Brennan is a character in novels written by Kathy Reichs. The character is based on Reichs' experiences as a forensic scientist. In the popular television series Temperance Brennan, played with sexy intelligence by Emily Deschanel, is a brilliant forensic anthropologist whose specialty is bones and she writes novels in which the main character is Kathy Reichs. Clever, no?
Bones, as she is dubbed by her investigative partner, FBI agent Steely Booth (David Boreanaz of TVs "Angel"), is able to cull clues out of the decayed remains and bones of bodies, but has little to no social skills. Reason being that she was abandoned as a child and raised in foster homes so the lonely little girl threw herself into science. I guess, that left no time for a social life. Together they solve some of the most baffling crimes and Booth tries to teach her how to act more 'human'. Though nothing of the romantic variety has happened between the two yet there are some sizzly moments à la Scully and Mulder of The X Files.
