Dr. Charity Coppelia is not real. She is a implanted personality. Whoever she really was vanished after repeated brainwashing and conditioning. The result of a project to create an assassin that could go deep undercover, and not even know she was an assassin. That ended after a raid on the facility where she was being reprogrammed with her latest personality. In the confusion she escaped, or more accurately wandered away. She had memories, but they were incomplete, of a life she had never lived. She found a wounded man in an alleyway and provided first aid. He offered to put in her contact with an underground clinic, since she had nowhere to go.

That began her life serving as a doctor for organized crime. A few months later, a rival gang hit the clinic. That was the first time one of her ghosts surfaced, fought back, and killed her attackers with a scalpel. When her allies found her, she was cowering in a corner, babbling about a mysterious woman who had shown up out of nowhere and saved her.

A year later, her patron was killed in a hit, and his rival took over. Dr. Copellia decided that she didn't want to work for him and managed to get a temporary berth as a ship's doctor, heading wherever it was going. Unfortunately for her, her current personality is a little too naive and trusting, so she often finds herself in bad situations, leading to her having to run away, and seek shelter somewhere new. Maybe the Righteous will be her new home?


A bit of an airhead, she seems almost perpetually puzzled and slow to recognize a dangerous situation. But she has a warm, gentle smile, and a kind heart. When she's treating injuries of diseases she tries to keep people as comfortable as possible. She empathetic to a fault and worries about people probably more than they worry about themselves. She likes cute things and can seem a little childish at times, despite being in her early 30s apparently.


An attractive woman with a gentle expression, big blue eyes, and long blond hair, usually pulled back into a fluffy ponytail. She usually wears a simple but stylish skirt and blouse under a white lab coat.
