Casey Lynch is one of the main characters who first appeared in Guitar Hero 2 as the third female character added to the game. She is on the cover of the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero II, along with Eddie Knox. In Guitar Hero Aerosmith, under one of her outfit descriptions it is said that Casey 'is close friends with Izzy Sparks.' She may be based on Linda Lou, lead singer and guitarist of LA band Cockpit. Her name comes from a friend of one of the creators, Casey Lynch, the EIC of IGN.com. She also seems to be based on Nina Persson or Kurt Cobain's wife Courtney Love of Hole.
- A veteran of the tour circuit, Rocker's dirty, bass-driven sound and ultra-heavy riffs have influenced budding shredders from Maine to Alaska. She's tough, she's brash, and she'll break your heart faster than an A string. - Guitar Hero II in-game bio
- Finally embracing her feminine appeal, Casey has risen to the status of 'Goddess of Rock'. When asked by a reporter if she had sold out, Casey replied with a roundhouse to the face. 'Don't worry, I'll pay the medical bill.' - Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Guitar Hero World Tour, Guitar Hero: Metallica, Guitar Hero: Smash Hits, and Guitar Hero: Van Halen in-game bio
- Casey has always led the charge towards innovative new sounds and style. Move over, sliced bread because this year, two words: Burlesque Rock. - Guitar Hero 5 in-game bio
Guitar Hero II
ShirtsCasey's default outfit has her dressed in blue leather pants and jacket with her long dirty blonde hair with bangs. Under the jacket, she wears a bra with the Confederate flag imprinted, though with inverted colors (red where it should be blue and vice-versa).
In this outfit, she does not wear her jacket. Instead, she wears a black bra, tight camoflage pants with her hair is red and denser than in her default outfit and sporting several tattoos.
Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
Casey Lynch's basic outfit is similar to her "Skins" outfit in the previous game. She is shown with straightened blonde hair, a bra top, a crucifix-like necklace, leather pants emblazoned with handgun decorations on both sides, and an exposed thong. Her "Electric" midriff tattoo from Guitar Hero II remains intact. In Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, her outfit was called "Jeans."
Like the other characters in Guitar Hero III, this outfit has four color schemes with a few differences between each.
Basic Black: Casey's default costume. Armband, wristbands, bra, thong and pants are all plain black.
Silver 'N Black: Casey's hair is dyed black. Armband, wristbands, pants, and bra straps are silver instead of black. In this outfit, black handguns are emblazoned on the sides of her pants (as opposed to white).
Crimson: Casey's hair is blonde with red streaks and wears black lipstick. Bra, thong, and pants are red. White studded belt as opposed to black in the other costumes.
Camo: Identical to the Basic Black uniform in most ways. Pants are forest camouflaged with a blue stud belt. No handgun designs on pants.
Mo' LeatherCasey Lynch's secondary costume generally shows her with her blonde hair pulled back in a ponytail that wraps aroung her neck resembling a noose, with several armbands, a black choker necklace, a half-sleeve on her left arm, and a glove on her right hand. As opposed to her first outfit, she has a leather top that covers most of her upper body and midriff tattoo, buckled skin-tight leather pants, and knee-high boots with high heels. She bears a shocking resemblance to Trish from the Devil May Cry series. In Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, her outfit was just called "Leather."
Black 'N Red: This outfit is mainly black with red high-heeled boots.
Black 'N White: Casey's armbands, top, and boots are white while the glove is grey. The rest of the outfit is black.
Vast Purple: This outfit shows Casey with a purple top, armbands, glove, boots, a dark purple streak in her hair, and light purple pants.
Fiery: As opposed to her other outfits, Casey's hair is bright red/orange in this outfit. Her top, bottoms of her boots, and armbands have flame designs on them. In the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions, she loses her right hand glove (as seen in the picture), but she keeps it on in the Playstation 2 and Wii versions.
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith
In the second trailer, Casey is very clearly seen in another variation of her Mo' Leather costume, but with a gray top, tan boots, and dark pants. She can also be seen in her variation of her Basic Leather attire. In some of her outfits Casey's dirty blonde hair is like a ginger type color in that of a cat.

Guitar Hero 5
Casey's four outfits features a Burlesque Rock appearance as said in her in-game bio. In most of her outfits, she sports short hair as usual and her look is similar to her look in GHIII. Some of her outfits can only be unlocked after beating a corresponding challenge.

Her pants are long with a racing stripe on both sides along with studs attached to the stripes, white belt with circles is also attached to the pants with white suspenders being loose and attached to the belt.
