Karen Tehama[1] is a Safety Patroller and the force's Forensic expert. Karen normally appears as a background character in most episodes of Fillmore! and she can be bribed to give lessons on forensics. She is voiced by Lauren Tom.[2][3]


Karen is an Asian-American teen girl. Her eye pupils and her hair, worn in pigtails, is mostly raven, with the two, curvy, parted and brow-skimming bangs dyed dark pink. Each pigtail is in a pink ribbon. She wears a pink short-sleeved shirt with a white cat's head on the front, orange sash, blue pants with red cuffs, white socks and black loafers.


Karen is mostly a background character so not a lot is known about her history other than the fact that she has a keen interest in forensic science and she is Japanese-American. Karen has appeared in most episode and can normally depict the nature of a scene by the aftermath and the components of various crimes with her trusty powder, magnifying glass and microscope.

In one episode it is shown that she can be bribed with a certain candy bar for lessons. Ingrid did this in A Wurm in Our Midst to get Tehama to teach her basic fingerprint detection with powder and brushes.
