Dr. Fernando Morales is a Deputy Medical Examiner for the Los Angeles County Department of the Coroner. He consults with the MCD on cases of suspicious or unknown death, and is responsible for determining whether an individual died by natural causes, or whether the death was accidental, a suicide or a homicide. He is also responsible for determining cause of death. According to his interview on Identity, he is an immigrant. Morales is one of five brothers and the only one who didn't become a police officer like their father.

In "White Lies, Part 1", he is present in the courtroom when Dwight Darnell opens fire. After Assistant Chief Russell Taylor is shot, Morales rushes to his side in an attempt to save his life. He ultimately fails and Taylor dies despite his efforts. As much affected by the tragedy as the squad, he still aids them in protecting Doctor Joe Bowman by officially declaring him dead to prevent further attempts on the man's life.

In "Dead Drop", he is visited by his father, a retired detective from Uruguay, Eduardo Morales. During phone calls to his family, he has greatly over-exaggerated his involvement in the investigations conducted by the Major Crimes Division, letting his father believe he is a part of the division and that he has a somewhat of a leadership role in the investigations. At first, it was noted that his father spoke and understood very little English and because of this, Fernando had to translate a lot of conversations to him. Buzz, being fluent in Spanish, also spoke to him exclusively in his own language. Eduardo later spoke with Capt. Raydor and Lt. Provenza and revealed that he speaks English more than his son knows. He also noted that Fernando must have a lot of good friends in America, considering they are willing to lie for him, revealing that he knew that Fernando was not usually a part of their investigations.
