Hunter: Empire of Lies
Dr. Jessica Fitzgerald
Jessica Fitzgerald’s life has been far too easy, to be perfectly frank. She became a doctor not to prove herself to anybody, but because both of her parents, doctors themselves, instilled in her a love of the profession from a young age. While she was never the “queen bee” in high school or in college, she always had a close circle of friends and never found herself lonely or picked on. Because wealth has always been a simple fact of life for her, she sees no need to be “flashy.” She is good at her job, and she is generally happy with it.
Because of this upbringing, however, Jessica has been left with a fundamental misunderstanding of the people that she works with nearly every day. She sees homeless people come into the ER of her hospital, watches single mothers on government assistance give birth to their third child, and wonders why they let themselves lead such terrible lives. In Jessica’s mind, anybody can become whatever they want to be if they’re just willing to work for it, and clearly these people lack any sort of ambition. While she is far too polite to make these feelings known, she has recently been considering a transfer from ER to Pediatrics, where she feels her talents as a doctor won’t be “wasted” on people who show no gratitude and will never pay the bill for their care anyway.
Jessica has a talent for research and an extensive knowledge in the field of pathology, where she concentrated her studies at school.
