NPC – Lieutenant Horatio Laine

Lieutenant Horatio Laine

 

As you enter Westfall from Elwynn Forest you will encounter a crime scene, and Lieutenant Horatio Laine is there with some quests for you to uncover what really happened. ┬áThis NPC is a reference to CSI:Miami’s main character Lieutenant Horatio Caine, played by David Caruso. ┬áHis character has some rather defining mannerisms – including drawling out his sentences as he puts on or takes off his shades, as well as saying a drawn out “Yeahhhh.”

The NPC also says some lines as a throwback to Lieutenant Caine:

Lieutenant Horatio Laine says: No kidding, rookie…
Lieutenant Horatio Laine says: Looks like they really put the cart…
Lieutenant Horatio Laine says: …before the horse

Lieutenant Horatio Laine says: Doesn’t look good, rookie.
Lieutenant Horatio Laine says: This was an execution. Whoever did this was sending a message…
Lieutenant Horatio Laine says: A message for anyone who would dare snitch on these criminals.
Lieutenant Horatio Laine says: It would appear that poor Lou really put his foot…
Lieutenant Horatio Laine says: In his mouth…

And I didn’t see this when I was doing the quest, but apparently he puts on shades as he kneels down to investigate a scene!

What a shame he doesn’t say “Yeaaaaaahhhh.”
