Dr. Marlow Stillman can be found in the Infirmary, tending to all manner of sick and injured staff and contestants.
On his home planet, the species that evolved into superiority were fish similar to Earth's nurse sharks. Often breaching 7 feet in height and tremendously strong, the Chondrolucians would seem to be at the apex of the food chain. However, they take a very, very long time to reach reproductive age and have a two-year gestation period. This means that it is very hard for them to reach a stable population size, and with the major predators of their planet breaching their defenses a new evolutionary advantage developed. Thousands of years ago it was discovered that Chondrolucians excrete enzymes from their hands that when in contact with injured cells, those cells are stimulated to grow and repair. This makes it easier for his species to survive.
However, once he left his homeworld as a young man, he was captured by bounty hunters and taken to a scientific corporation interested in marketing his enzymes as a "wonder drug".They soon figured out that the enzymes are useless unless they contact injured cells directly from his hand and cease to work after a few moments. While captured, he fell in love with a fellow prisoner, a young human woman named Yvonne. She died, but he is loathe to explain the circumstances of her death or even discuss her at all. He has a picture of her on his desk.
Eventually he escaped, and has been roaming the galaxy ever since, running from bounty hunters and trying to mask his abilities. He went to medical school and learned how to heal without his enzymes, not wanting a repeat of Yvonne's death. Dr. Stillman will use his ability if normal medical treatments will fail, but he prefers to practice medicine like any other doctor.Personality:
A Pacifist by nature, Dr. Stillman abhors violence in every form, probably due to his past experiences. He will do everything he can to avert a fight and is super protective of his patients and of children. He is patient and observant, easily forgives but does not easily forget.Strengths:
He is incredibly strong and can self-heal. He is also very intelligent and patient, willing to wait out a fight or ignore aggressors.Weaknesses:
He's a huge softy. He comes to injury by avoiding a fight. People often dislike him or think he is weak because of his pacifistic nature. Sometimes he comes across as overly formal or polite.
Note: He is currently in somewhat of a relationship (a.k.a. old people courtship) with Inka
, a fellow doctor in the Infirmary.
