Within the Ashes of Chicago
Dr. William Blackwell
"Immortality is false hope. Without invulnerability it is meaningless."
Doctor Blackwell comes across as something of an occultist, a traditionalist, and a bit of a masochist at times. While perfectly functional and stable in most circumstances, combat brings out his peculiar side.
William Blackwell is a medical doctor specializing in tissue regeneration and soft tissue sarcomas. Previously a member of Doctors Without Borders, he settled down into practice in 1989 and became the owner of two patents, one on detecting sarcomas and another on phenotyping them. Their popularity made him fairly wealthy and presumably gained the attention of a Ventrue, as William rarely makes appearances in his own practice anymore, leaving the day-to-day work to his staff.
