Background

John Henry Holliday was born in the Core Worlds into a modestly successful family. He did not have a
silver spoon, but he also wasn't eating from the gutters. He was always better with his mind than his body, favoring
games of skill over physical sports. From an early age he had a penchant for gambling and his quick mouth often got
him in trouble.

During school, the Alliance government saw his aptitude in biology and other sciences and steered
him towards a medical profession. When he graduated from school, he was invited to join the Academy where the
Alliance paid for his medical training, for the small price of serving a term of not less than fifteen years. He had
a brilliant medical mind, able to isolate and deduce illnesses from symptoms faster than any technology. But that was
offset by a somewhat…lacking bedside manner. He retired from the Alliance military as a Major, drawing a pension
that was able to keep him alive, barely.

But being alive wasn't enough for John "Doc" Holliday, and he developed a strong sense of wanderlust and
booked a ride on a freighter heading anywhere. He had no destination, no plan, just a desire to be on the move. He
lived on a few border planets, never staying long enough to grow roots. He soon ended up on Persephone, where the
seedier side fit in well with his gambling persona, yet his medical skills afforded him a much higher quality of
living than most. Serving in the military also granted him a proficiency in combat, not to a level of a soldier, but
well enough to defend him or his patients if needed
