Originally from a well-off Virginia family, Oliver Herbert had a domineering veteran officer of a father whom sought his 'general staff' of choice within the ranks of his sons and son-in-laws. His oldest brother went into the military, Ramsey's marriage was practically arranged to Oliver's sister to ensure the business element. That left Oliver pressured into studying as a doctor - though he found his way to freedom of choice with the inspiration of Dr. Bernard Spillsbury.

The famous British pathologist and medico-legal expert had been at work making headlines and setting the path forward for criminal forensics, and Oliver found a mentor, the much older Dr. Morrison, whom intended to bring that example forward to the United States. Oliver earned his doctorate and was working as a ME when connections and Hoover's desire for a fully modern, professional FBI led to Dr. Herbert being recommended and recruited to the agency.
