Character Name: Doc
Alternate Identities: J Watson III, J
Player Name: NPC
|J is an attractive Chinese-American girl of 19 with long black hair, dark brown eyes and a slender figure that belies her physical strength.
|J is currently in residence at Naval Medical Center San Diego
While J has inherited some of her great, great, grandfather's meta-human strength she has made no effort to learn what to do with it so she is limited to opening tight lids on pickle jars.
Her real powers are in her unique healing abilities. She can cure disease, blindness, detoxify poisons, close open wounds and even re-attach severed limbs. These all come at a great price to her personally in that she must take all of these on to her own body in order to cure them. She suffers each and every one for the seven hours or so it take her body to heal.
J is extremely fragile and could be killed very easily with a handgun. This does not deter her in the least and she will run into the midst of battle to help whoever is in need. Her ability to Detect Physical Condition allows her to stand back and ascertain the condition of anyone who goes down at range. Should an injury be life threatening, she will go in without hesitation. It is for this reason that Nathaniel has requested Q make it a priority to develop an armored suit to project J in battle. Further, Nat has presented a concept to Q of an armor that will unfold around J and her patient to provide them both with projection as she helps them. The current Doc Armor Mk.1 is the prototype. It is heavy, at 600 pounds but J's superior strength overcomes any difficulties inherent in that kind of weight. She has been training to move in to battle, and straight to her target. Once there, she falls forward over the target and the armor unfolds, anchoring itself to the ground.
Because of her abilities she recognizes the fragility of life and has vowed to 'do no harm'. For this reasson she is a pacifist and will use her powers on any that need it, regardless of that person's moral leaning. The one thing that her grandfather has always feared was to have her held in secret to cure the rich and powerful.
J has one 'hidden' ability, a powerful will, i.e. EGO. It is this that has allowed her to move on after the torture inflicted upon her during her captivity. She simply knows that nothing that can be done to her is permanent including psycholgically.
J is friendly and open but tends to offer medical observations on people around her. Just as Deb (Seer) has to refrain from 'reading' others, J is trying to learn not to diagnose everyone she meets especially when she is dealing with non-metahumans. She has begun to worry others might see her as intruding or meddling. If what she finds is something minor, a cold or a splitter, she can easily keep it to herself, but, should discover something serious, she feels that it is her duty to inform whoever it might be. This tendency was what got her into trouble with Perseverance when she diagnosed a member with stage 4 cancer. Her Grumpus insists in the future that it might be wiser in the future to pass someone a note advising they seek medical help.
J is very aware of her powers and knows what can happen is someone decides they want to control her. She is afraid of letting anyone else outside the Minuteman teams know about what she can do. She really fears being kidnapped again but not for the reasons one would expect.. She desparately wants to help as many people as she can but people have to understand that she has limits … though no one in the government believes her, except Nat.
One of her biggest regrets was not being able to save her father after his fall. She is aware that it was not her fault but still, she could have saved him.
She like Film Noir and Detective novels with strong female leads. Her favorite authors are Sue Grafton and Marcia Muller.
|J is the budding expert in meta-human medicines. It helps that she can diagnose and heal just about anything.
