An elderly man in his mid-60s, Doc has taken care of Cleanwater for the last decade. No one’s sure where he came from, but they aren’t about to complain. Most every citizen in Cleanwater would be dead or cripple if it weren’t for the expert fingers of this gravelly-voiced curmudgeon.
During his stay in Cleanwater, Doc’s managed to keep himself out of the town politics, and doesn’t turn anyone away from his door, even if it’s a wounded raider who just attempted to pillage the town.
However, people tend to stay away from Doc unless they’re in need of serious medicine due to the man’s distinct lack of a bedside manner. Instead, they tend to find Nurse Frita, who is much warmer and welcoming.
But the old man has dark secret. In his youth he was himself a raider, happily pillaging and raping throughout the wastes with his gang. Eventually a battle went poorly, and Doc was left by his friends to die. He was taken in by a young woman who took care of him, knowing full well what he was. In the end he became smitten, and through her joined up with the Followers of the Apocalypse, an organization dedicating to bringing about a better world. It was with them that he learned medicine.
Years passed and the woman became his wife. Unfortunately she died along with their newborn child during a complicated labor. Doc packed up his things and hit the wastes.
After several years of wandering, he found Cleanwater. It needed a doctor, and he needed a home. He’s been there ever since.
