Determined, smart, and deep. Doctor.

0 · 195 views · located in Chicago, totally wiped out. year is 2148.

a character in “Ichneumon”, as played by FalloutRomanae

Description

Shane is an average build African American man, with very short, very curly black hair. He has deep brown eyes and wears nice, but casual clothes (polos and nice pants, etc.). He always seems clean and well kept. He also always wears a wooden cross on a necklace and black, thin glasses. Kind of old-timey, but he prefers them to contacts or anything else. Age 28.

Personality

Shane is a smart, meaningful person. Very self-possessed and confident. He feels personally responsible for anything that happens to anyone that he cares about/for, which means he feels very guilty that he survived the nuclear holocaust while his family and friends did not. He always tries to get to the truth of things, and is very religous. He speaks very articulately and slowly, choosing his words carefully. (More will be revealed in play.)

Equipment

Shane carries with him two canteens of water that he was able to boil, a backpack, a pocket-knife, a trench knife, a 12-gage single-shot shotgun, and a brief-case thing in which he carries his medical supplies. He has some anti-biotics, some shots for the most recent flu, polio, Hepatitis A, and chicken pox, 50' of bandages, disinfectant, a sewing kit (for surgery), and various medicines.

History

Shane came from a good family and went to medical school once he graduated high-school. He was in some debt and worked as a doctor to repay it. Then, he became a Christian and began traveling to 3rd world countries as a missionary and doctor. This did not pay as well, and he is still in a little debt. In his travels, he discovered his love for language, and he began studying Biblical Greek and a little Classical Latin as well as the languages of the countries he would visit. He would return home after each mission a changed man, a better linguist, and a skilled doctor. Once he came back to America to restock and visit his family when the nuclear holocaust struck. He doesn't know why he survived, but he believes it is still his job to help people with his doctoring skills and what supplies he might have left. (More will be revealed in play.)

"Well, I don't have much. If it's money you want, which... I don't know why you would want it anymore, all I've got is this twenty dollars." Shane Washington got out his wallet. "Or is it supplies you want?"

"I don't have anything that you don't already have," He nodded toward the pharmacy, "Except for my skills as a doctor. And as for what I want, I want to double my supply of everything I have, and add pain-killers."

Shane lowered his head in disappointment. "That's alright. In that case, I don't need anything from you. However, I have taken upon myself the duty of healing and helping any soul I come across in this... brave new world." He looked around with sadness, but some eagerness showed in his eyes. "Do either of you require my assistance immediately, or do you want me to accompany you in whatever you do and provide you with my services?"
