Robin Hudson is a character in the rough draft version of the novel Nocturnal by author Scott Sigler. The character is initially introduced in episode three of the audio version of Nocturnal.

Character Background

Robin Hudson is the Medical Examiner for the city of San Francisco. She was once romantically linked to SFPD Homicide Detective Bryan Clauser, but had broken up with him six months prior. In episode 3, Police Criminalist Sacha "Sammy" Burzon and Crime Scene Photographer Jimmy Chang bring in the body of Alex Panos. This is the same point at which Sammy asks Robin out on a date, which she takes a rain check.

In investigating the body of Alex Panos, Robin immediately determines his arm has been torn off not cut off. Noticed 3 matching lines curving and zigzagging on the bones of the remains of the shoulder. Robin speculates that the parallel lines look like bite marks as if someone bitten and shook him like a dog shakes a chew toy.

Robin begins looking for the DNA evidence she needed to id the killer. She runs DNA analysis on the saliva found on the body. She finds signs that the killer was male but also finds evidence of Klinefelter's syndrome. She calls her mentor and former professor Dr. Stone Mason to confirm her suspicions but Dr. Mason gives her another possibility – that the killer could have been a brother and a sister. Further testing of the samples reveal a bizarre YZ chromosome pattern instead of the normal XX for female or XY for male. Upon this news, Dr. Stone Mason agrees to visit Robin to assist with the investigation.



Robin was referred to by a couple of nicknames. Pookie Chang referred to her as both Robs amd Bo-Bobbin.

Outward Appearance

No specific description of Robin’s appearance is given as of yet.


From a work perspective, Robin is dedicated and tenacious. She had a different career option available to her in the realm of research, but she stayed the with the San Francisco coroners office because she felt a calling to do something for a society that she felt, was spinning down the drain. She felt she was part of the solution as she helped police officers gin the intelligence needed in their war against crime. She felt that the data she provided to the front lines was a crucial part of stopping the killers.

From a personal perspective, Robin dearly loves her 65-pound German shorthaired Pointer named Emma. Emma is Robin’s favorite nap buddy and when Robin cannot get home in time to let Emma out, she frequently relies on her neighbor whom she affectionately called Big Gay Max.


Robin's firearm of choice was a KelTec P3AT.
