The lead of CSI:NY played by Gary Sinise who goes by Mac because he was given the unfortunate name of Mackenna. Very driven about his work. Not that he does much work. Mac relies mostly on his sixth sense of "Who dunnit". Is known for saying he never strays from the rules, but in reality he enters reckless situations quite often because he knows he is a superhero that can never be harmed.
Superhero Mac Taylor has survived explosions, gunshots, hostage situations and all without any serious injuries.
While the other CSIs use forensics to solve crimes Mac uses his instincs which have never before proven false, from identifying killers to knowing where to check for evidence.
