"Who's your Daddy?"
"I hate it when you say that."
"You know what, this is important. You remember this. I used to be cool!"
As sheriff of Neptune, Keith Mars was in charge of the investigation into Lilly Kane's murder. For reasons as mysterious to us as they are to the rest of the town, Keith decided to accuse Lilly's father Jake of the crime, and Jake promptly had Keith run out of office. Almost immediately after, Keith's wife Lianne left him in a cloud of angry tears and suspicion.
Trying to glue back the pieces of his life, Keith opened a detective agency with his daughter Veronica acting as his secretary, business partner, confidante, and action figure heroine. His specialties are finding bail jumpers and nailing cheating spouses. (Not like that.)
Keith has had one relationship since Lianne: Rebecca James, the school counselor, but he broke it off after seeing that Veronica wasn't ready to handle it. Aw.
