Appearance & Personality: Dr. Lionel Carpenter is a dedicated physician who is just over the hill but has no intention of retiring. He is a short, thin man who stands at about 5' 4" (a couple of inches shorter than his daughter), with thinning white hair. He has few wrinkles for man his age, but he is not the most handsome of men either. He treats others with kindness and respect, and expects to be treated the same way himself.

Background: Lionel was born in the spring of 1945. His father Oliver Carpenter had always planned to be a doctor, though the outbreak of war interrupted his studies. In a rush of patriotism, he had joined up right after the invasion of Poland, when he was commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant. He had shown great potential not only for his medical skills but also for leadership and covert operations. He joined the Special Air Service when it was formed in 1941 and was trained as a paratrooper, fighting first in North Africa and Italy. He landed in Normandy in the wee hours of June 6, 1944 as part of the leading edge of the D-Day invasion. He sprained his ankle due to a bad landing, and a French Resistance fighter named Claire Deveraux saved his life. He later saw action in the disastrous Operation Market Garden and in the Battle of the Bulge. After the war in Europe ended, by which time Oliver had been promoted to the rank of major, he went to France to look up Claire and found that she had recently given birth to a baby boy (Lionel) that he had fathered during their time together in France. He immediately married her, and they moved back to his hometown of London, where he resumed his studies and became a doctor.

Lionel had no doubt growing up that he wanted to be a doctor like his father, and through hard work he made his dream come true. During his residency in the early 1970's, he met and fell in love with a beautiful blonde nurse named Beatrice Lunsford, and she was just as taken with him. Within a few years, they got married. In the late 1970's, their daughter Sarah was born.

Tragedy struck one day when Sarah was six. Lionel had had to work beyond the end of his shift at the hospital, and Beatrice had been home alone with Sarah when she had suffered a stroke and died. Both Lionel and Sarah were devastated by the loss, but they still had each other. While Sarah had blamed herself because she had been there, even though she had done everything she could, Lionel blamed himself for not having been there and for missing the early warning signs of a stroke. He knew he could never bring Beatrice back, but he resolved to do everything he could for Sarah. She was all he had left of Beatrice, and she became his whole world. He raised her as best he could, leaving almost no time for himself until she was grown. He knew she had the adroitness and talent to be a surgeon and he had encouraged her to go to medical school, but she chose to become a nurse instead like her mother, as she had been afraid of having so much responsibility in life and death situations. He still kept in constant contact with her once she was an adult and living on her own, but he had some free time at this point and he took up hunting (which Sarah never approved of, but she didn't criticise him for it).

Last year, Sarah had found a new boyfriend, a young lawyer named Lyle Hamilton. He struck Lionel as rather intense and there seemed to be something off about him, but Sarah wouldn't hear anything bad about him. As their relationship developed, Sarah came to realize that Lyle was trying to monopolize her, and when she had asked him for some breathing room he blew up at her. Her heart shattered, she broke up with him on the spot and ran crying to her father, who comforted her.

Things went from bad to worse when Lyle began to stalk Sarah. Lionel went to bat for her and went with her to the police, but there was nothing they could do since they couldn't prove that Lyle had broken any laws. They got a restraining order against him, though that piece of paper ultimately proved useless. Lionel offered to let Sarah move in with him, but as frightened as she was, she refused to let fear rule her life. Instead she trained herself to fight back in case the worst happened.

One night about a month ago it almost did. Lionel was awakened out of a sound sleep by a phone call from the police, and his heart sank. He was certain they were going to tell him that Lyle had murdered Sarah, and was relieved to discover that she had in fact managed to slay him in self-defense before he managed to rape her or cause her any serious injury. He rushed to the hospital to be at her side, and this time she took his offer to move in with him until she found a new flat.

Lionel had been working an extended shift at Mercy Cross Hospital today, and he just got finished this afternoon. He knew that Sarah's shift would end in a few hours, so he decided to surprise her and treat her to dinner in a nice restaurant. To while away the time, he has gone to the cinemaplex across the street from the hospital to take in a movie or two.

Lionel's greatest fear is that something terrible will happen to Sarah. His greatest hope is that she will find and marry a good man who will protect her after he's gone.

Family Members: Lionel's father Oliver Carpenter and his mother Claire both died five years ago, within a fortnight of each other. He has two younger sisters, Betty (60) and Victoria (57), who are both married with a number of children and grandchildren. Betty's family lives in Manchester, and Victoria's family lives in Edinburgh. Lionel's daughter Sarah is 30 years old. She lives in London, in a new flat near Mercy Cross Hospital, where both she and her father work.

Appearance:
Joel stands about 5'5", and weighs 57 kg. He has dark brown hair and hazel eyes and a pale complexion. He is wearing his jeans, a hospital gown, and pushes around an IV.

Character:
Joel is a charming and studious kid, with a healthy respect for authority. He stays out of trouble - his family life was troublesome enough what with the abuse from his father and recent divorce. His father spent many drunken nights passing his aggression off in forceful ways onto Joel and his mother. It continued until one evening when his mother was repeatedly punching his mother in the face. Joel had to do something, so he took his father's favored high-school trophy off the mantle and bashed the man over the head with it, knocking his father unconscious. His mother brought Joel to London in an attempt to distance themselves from his father's abusive ways.

Likes: Computers, electronics, swimming, and football (although he's not very good at it yet).
Dislikes: Dumb people. Distrusts anyone drunk.

Dahlia Brown -
8-year-old patient
4'2", 85 lbs.
Born : Liverpool
Resides : London

str:7hp - 2 (5hp)
9 Con
5 Size
12 dex

Dahlia is in the hospital because she had her gall bladder removed. The procedure was done two days ago and she is on the mend. She likely would have been discharged today but given the events no discharges were done.

Dahlia is curious. She has a mind that works a mile a minute, asking 'what if' questions. She loves the nature of cause and effect and will ask these questions whenever she has the chance. She has a love for nature and is constantly trying to capture bugs and look at them, or play with her microscope and look at a piece of hair or anything she can get her hands on. Likely when she grows up she'll go into the medical field because it interests her so much. Her obsession is 'Body Works', the scientific art display she saw last year. Her mother bought her the book after the showing left the local Science museum, and she pours over it almost daily, and doesn't find it gross at all, even though her friends do.

Dahlia is the second oldest of 5 kids and is well used to taking care of her younger siblings. She makes a good babysitter when her mother asks her, and quite happily takes her younger siblings out to the backyard for a swing or slide on the swingset. She likes to be in charge of them and is always happy to help when it's asked of her. Although she has a mind of her own, because she's inquisitive and likes to find out 'why', she's also happy to be of help to others.

Cael was born in Dublin but raised in New York City and moved to London when he was sixteen. Cael O’Reily came from a long line of cops, when his ancestors arrived from Ireland the first job his great grandfather landed was that of a beat cop. His grandfather too took up the career and ended up a lieutenant and his father was a homicide detective before he was shot and killed in the line of duty when Cael was only twelve.

From the moment of his conception he was destined to be a police officer but by the time he was sixteen he knew he didn’t want to be something one of his family members had been before. As he was going through the police academy he noticed a flyer on the bulletin board announcing tryouts for the SWAT team. Thinking that this was his chance to go that extra step in his career he tried out. Cael did fairly well, he was abnormally strong or any smarter than the average Joe out there but what he had was speed and a good eye.

Cael graduated from the police academy as part of the SWAT team as a sniper but that wasn’t his best ability and those that knew him well knew that his real dream was to fly. He played and owned the best and most expensive flight simulation games on the market and had several hours logged in on real flight simulators. It was his best friend and partner Jack that ended up helping Cael get his career going where it ought to have been.

One day as Cael was suiting up, ready to go out on a job, the captain walked up and pulled him aside. Cael was informed that the department needed chopper pilots across the city and badly, they were even willing to pay for him to get his license and certifications. Cael immediately jumped at the opportunity.
