Bio:

The Doctor grew up in a medical family – she was the daughter of two medical professionals. The Doctor was compassionate as a child, but even at a young age she couldn’t understand some of the lengths that medicine went to to keep the sick and the old alive, despite their suffering. Following in the family tradition, The Doctor attended and excelled in medical school. A graduation gift was a trip home to meet family in India. Although The Doctor’s family had become Anglicans to better fit in in England, a distant Aunt taught The Doctor about Hinduism. When The Doctor seemed receptive, she then taught her about the Great Wheel. Suddenly everything made sense to The Doctor. The Doctor was then inducted into the Euthanatos.

The Doctor has since returned to England to practice medicine. She helps those she can, but as a guardian of The Wheel, she also knows when things need to end so something new can begin. She reserves particular pity for those spirits who cling to the mortal realm and refuse to move on to their next incarnation, and does anything she can to help them let go.

The Doctor is not a fan of Dr. Who, and it irritates her when people make Dr. Who jokes in reference to her.

The Doctor worked together with Karnacki, The Ghost-Taker and Michael Hopkins to defeat the Child of Night, or so they had believed. Finding that they worked well as a team, it was The Doctor who convinced her allies to form an official cabal.

The Doctor was something of a mentor to David Joy. Not only did she help him with his addiction issues, she also preformed the Euthanatos ritual of the Agama Te on the young man. This ritual brought him to the brink of death in a controlled fashion, and The Doctor took David to the Underworld, to show him what he had been relegating people to. She understood his drives, but hoped she could help him to conduct his activities in a more judicious manner. Needless to say, she was saddened by David’s eventual fate, and hopes that he will find peace in a future reincarnation.
