Description

β€œprimum non nocere.”

Name: Hayden Lucjan Addler

Age: 30

Gender: Male

Personality:

A man with obsession with the preservation of life, he is duty bound as a doctor, no matter what it means to care for his patients, as well as his abnormal staff. He shows more care towards preserving the purity of organics than resorting to cybernetics, and shows reluctance, even disdain, towards robotics. The loss of his human staff had some impact on him, perhaps having watched his coworkers die had a severe traumatic effect, driving him somewhat crazy.

Despite his dubious practice, he adheres to a moral code of conduct, and has a truly compassionate quality that is honestly dedicated to the greater good.

Background:

Once a promising figure in the field of medical science, he was held with high esteem, coming from a wealthy background helping to push him along. At a young age, he had succeeded in being a profound physician. Success became maddened obsession, making the one time he'd fail to save a patient, the catalyst required to fall over the edge.

Obsessed with the preservation of life as the world around him had gone to hell, he became involved in a cult owning a massive facility, and a practitioner in blending medical science and arcane magical practice, becoming involved in the secretive Genesis Project. Still being a good man at heart, he found the error in his new found friends, especially his partner, Dr. Hulson, whom disagreements with became more and more violent. Hulson saw their experiments as tools and weapons to establish a new rule and society, and to live as gods over a new land, and Hayden simply wanted a better world, and seeing his partner's goals threatening it, had to make yet another breach in his Hippocratic Oath, and took the man's life with a single shot from the back.

Now he lives in the facility, resuming his work as a physician, along with the bizarre creatures that have become his staff, in hope he can make this world a better place. Feared by some, who have dubbed him "Doctor Monster."

Among his prized staff is one referred to as Nurse Lumina, a seemingly humanoid female being completely wrapped in white and blue flowing clothes and a face covered in a blue triangular visor. A being capable of using healing magic.

Another, often locked away out of sight is referred to as Basalah, locked in a room for "misbehaving." Has a strange relationship with the doctor, and displays anger towards Lumina.

So begins...

Pat, pat, pat, pat, pat...

The sound of hurried light patter of small feet was barely audible over the much louder city life. Running rather nimbly through the rough n' tumble was an unusual sight, a tall figure dressed fully in white-and-blue, body covered in a light-blue zipped jumpsuit, giving the vague impression of a female form, and over the suit was an open flowing white lab coat. The face of the figure was obscured by a triangular visor, and a hood even hid the back of her head. Clothes looked fairly clean, cleaner than typical at least, with only minor tearing. The figure was carrying a large duffel bag as well, filled with supplies of some sort, and handling it pretty well.

"Ey, watch it!" a man yelled as the figure gracefully spun around to avoid bumping into him. As she did so, the coat revealed the back of the figure, a black symbol on the back of the suit resembling a stylized arrow pointing down with the number 17. To the few that have seen this symbol before, or at least were vaguely familiar, would know of some horror stories of a wartime bio-engineering facility, and a mad doctor operating just on the outskirts. "The hell?" the man mumbled, as the figure turned to quietly bow to him briefly, before sprinting off again, leaving him and a few others befuddled by the encounter.

This figure, as a name-tag dangling from the coat would indicate, possessed only the name of Lumina, and also apparently considered a physician herself by the inclusion of a nurse title. She was here to perform errands on behalf of the mad doctor himself, Dr. Hayden Addler. This would also imply, also, that the elegant form behind the suit was something not quite human, given the good doctor's reputation. Regardless, she had money, and was causing no harm, and yet, not all are okay with even that.

Making her way out, she happened by a bar, catching the aftermath of some sort of scuffle that occurred recently. She stopped, watching as a couple men came limping out the building. She tilted to the side, watching them curiously, them on the other hand being in far too much pain, and far too defeated to really pay much attention to their surroundings. Then a third, an sheepish fellow with thick glasses, holding his jaw, apparently, by his shifting eyes, in search of someone to attend to his painful situation.

Pat, pat, pat, pat...

The man soon had a shadow cast over him as Lumina now loomed over him, staring deeply at him. He nearly fell back at the figure's sudden approach, bracing for the worst as two gloved hands reached out for him, barely hiding the small claws on their tips. Jabs of pain would go through his head as the being felt his bruised face, only to utter confused and pained grunts. Shortly after, forcing the man's mouth open slightly, pressing a thumb inside his mouth and over a molar, the other holding his head still, and in a quick motion, and pop, pushes the jaw straight and then lifts up relocating it, before letting the man go and drop to a sitting position on the ground, holding his face in shock of what just transpired, and within only a few seconds.

"You stopped, what are you doing?" a tired man's voice popped through a communication device in the visor. Lumina tilted her head putting a finger on the side of her head where an ear would be for a human. "That is not a place to linger, the locals aren't exactly known for their... hospitality."

Lumina who was previously paying attention to her superior would now find herself catching sight of a large war machine hovering through the city. "R-Ro-," she muttered, the first utterance she has made in quite some time. The mouse of a man had likely crawled away by now, likely to evade any kind of fee for the... likely mutant nurse's services.

"What was that? No, never mind, I can see it from here. Just ignore it, we don't get involved with... automatons," the doctor said to Lumina, a clear tone of discontent at mention of the machine. It was no mystery that the doctor had little to no regard for mechanical entities, aside from as tools, machinery to him would never replace the delicate subtleties of biology. "Besides, who knows, it may mark you as a threat or something. You wouldn't exactly radiate a human signal, regardless of noble intent. Best to be on the safe side and return immediately."

Lumina sighed, but wouldn't be disobedient, and took off again at a decent pace, keeping watch on the machine for any movement. Her destination was to make her way back to the clinic, the supplies in tow were of importance to maintain the medical machinery, and... other facility operations.
