Patrick Jane is not an officer of the law of any sort and formerly had a lucrative career as a con man successfully posing as a psychic medium and enjoying near-celebrity status.


He appeared on television to claim that his paranormal abilities helped the police profile a serial killer named Red John. Red John, angered by the perceived slight, murdered Jane's wife and young daughter in revenge.


Jane subsequently abandoned his career as a psychic and teamed up with the CBI, using his skills to help them solve various crimes. His main focus is on the cases involving Red John or Red John copycats.


He admits to faking the supernatural aspects of his skills, often asserting that "there's no such thing as psychics", yet he has finely honed skills in cold reading, hypnotism, and pick pocketing, as well as powerful observational skill and a deep insight into the human psyche and behaviour.


These skills come in handy in every episode and his unorthodox and bizarre techniques to solve crimes sometimes offend the team of agents he works with. They often involve elaborate ruses and mind games to trick the culprit into confessing


Season 3 of The Mentalist kicks off when CBI takes on a case involving a murdered state lobbyist, and Patrick helps in the case despite being preoccupied with Kristina's disappearance, presumably at the hands of Red John.
