Isn't our time machine amazing? It's almost as big as the left wing of my parents' mansion!
—Theodore Moon

Theodore "Theo" Moon (Kor: 문시어도어) is a main character appearing in Season 6 of Criminal Case, where he serves as the Lab Chief of T.I.M.E.'s Temporal Crimes Division.


28 years old as of 2029, Theo has black eyes, black hair, and a black mustache and goatee. He wears a white and blue lab coat over a black shirt, along with a red tie which has a golden triangle embedded on its tip.

Born to a wealthy family, Theo only works due to his love for science. Although he is very kind, his background as a spoiled kid makes him unknowingly come off as clueless about the real world. He likes playing golf, classic sci-fi, and eating gourmet food. He also has a pet drone named Astro, which he often carries around.

In his quasi-suspect appearance in A Slice of Death, he wears a merchant's outfit composed of a blue vest with black lining over a white shirt.

Events of Criminal Case

Meeting Theodore

The player first met Theo in Ancient Egypt, 47 BCE, where he welcomed the player into his lab and offered them a place to go whenever they were tired of the past. After Theo excitedly revealed the mechanics of the time machine, he surmised that the killer played the harp per a bloody cloth sent to him.

Gone in 30 Seconds

After arresting Billy Snapshot's killer, Amy revealed her plan to send a message to Chief Scott in 2029 to help the team get out of the 1960s. She ordered Theo and Zara to assume the place of Chief Scott's parents at the bank and set up a safe deposit account in which they would leave him a letter that was to be opened in 2029. Theo and Zara successfully opened the account with help from banker Judy Strong and papers forged by Orlando and left a letter in it to be opened by Chief Scott in 2029.

Hell to Pay

During the murder investigation of torturer Mateo Arias, Theo got kissed all over his face by the ladies at a local brothel in the Renaissance as he was trying to find a match for one of his lab samples.

Later, after arresting Mateo's killer, Jack argued with Theo, accusing him of stealing his anti-aging cream. When caught by Amy, she tasked them, along with the player, to look for beverages for the feast she organized to let team members' hair down. At the Inquisition Tribunal, the team found a crate of alcohol, which Theo and Jack then proved its safety, eventually getting themselves reconciled. Theo then made Jack an anti-aging cream with some ingredients they found thanks to the help of Inquisition healer Beatriz del Castillo. Afterward, the team (including Leonardo da Vinci) joined the feast, reconciling with each other.

Anchors Aweigh!

After arresting Barnabas Dycker's killer, Zara and the player spoke to Theo about learning how to sail. He told the team that he had found a small sloop that they could use for sailing practice, but it was too beat up for it to go out to sea. After Zara and the player found the materials needed to construct a sail, Theo began teaching them the basic nautical terms. Later, Theo took the team out on the sloop to continue their sailing training. After the lesson, Theo commended the team and told them that they were ready to approach Captain Shadrach about joining his crew.

A Slice of Death

After arresting Shogun Yoshinobu Gojo's killer, Zara told the player that Theo had run away to the temple in a sudden fit of worry. After Amy and the player found a photo of Theo with Kai and Zara, they encountered Theo and took him back to the time machine. There, he told them that his hand was disappearing. Amy deduced that his hand disappearing was due to the timeline changing for one of his ancestors, leading Theo to believe that Princess Torgoljin, his ancestor, was dead. Amy tried to reassure Theo and told him that Penelope and Kai were due to report in a few hours and that she would ask them if the princess was okay.

The Wrath of Khan

During the murder investigation of Santiago Sanchez, Theo informed that he had stopped fading, although his left arm had not reappeared. Later, the team learned that Penelope had told Kai the reason for Theo's fading, which was because Theo's ancestor, Torgoljin, was dating the "wrong" man, Santiago. However, although Santiago had been death, Theo's arm did not reappear.

After arresting Santiago's killer, Penelope figured out that Theo's arm did not reappear because Torgoljin had not found the "right" man, his ancestor, Chinese soldier Kong Wan Chun. Penelope and the player then managed to arrange Torgoljin and Wan Chun's dating at the Great Wall, hence restoring Theo's ancestry and regaining Theo's arm.


As the Lab Chief of the T.I.M.E.'s Temporal Crimes Division, Theo has the responsibility of taking care of all the necessary physical, biological, and/or clinical analyses, and to inform the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash.
