35Daytime job or occupation:
Private practice doctorRole at the Fucking Gulch brothel:
Officially the doctor's role is as a bartender. However he often wears several hats. He is a stern male figure if one of the patrons of the establishment needs a reminder to behave. He is the medic for any injuries that may occur on site. He runs the basement lounge for clients and employees. He's a passable chef, and his tiny kitchen he set up in the basement is used to make short order type meals for those who need it. He's even been known to accept an invitation by a female client who's come into the brothel, though he would never consider himself a prostitute.Bio:
Sean Rossi, was born of an Italian American father and German American mother in Queens NY in the 70s. His upper middle class life was fairly normal, and his good looks and charming demeanor complemented his quick wit. He glided through school and only was challenged when he hit college. Deciding that he wanted to go into medicine, he rose meteorically through the ranks of his classmates, and graduated near the top of his class. He went through a fairly standard residency and was accepted to be a surgeon at Mount Sinai Hospital in the heart of Manhattan. Most people would have said life was good for Dr. Rossi, but most people didn't see the internal pressure he was under. His work was his life, and the pressure never let up. He began drinking more and more, and he couldn't hold down a steady relationship. His mother's death was nearly all he could take. Having lost his father only a few years earlier, to likewise lose his mother to lung cancer (both were heavy smokers) before the age of thirty was too much. His proclivity for high priced Manhattan prostitutes was tempered only by his consumption of expensive scotch.
It was no surprise when the stress and the hard living finally caught up to him. He won't talk about the accident, but most of his coworkers agree that it doesn't matter if he was impaired while in the operating room or not... the woman was probably too far gone to be saved anyways. But it was a blow that Sean couldn't take. He severed his ties with Mount Sinai in exchange that the matter would be closed. Then with no family left to keep him in New York he decided he needed a lower stress life. Remembering about the small town of New Harrisville Falls that one of his patients had told him about, he looked into it.
Within a year Doctor Sean Rossi had set up a small private practice in the small community. Once a week an hour drive to a nearby town for an AA meeting, and a few weeks of the nicotine patch had curbed most of his bad habits. Though after a year in New Harrisville Falls, there was one itch he couldn't stop scratching. While he was a handsome man, the people of this community didn't know about his sexual addiction. At first it wasn't bad, internet porn managed to keep him satisfied. But eventually that wasn't enough. He couldn't risk making an inappropriate comment to a client or even a stranger in the community... with a small town like this word spread fast.
Then salvation; one of his patients noticed that he was distracted, and Dr. Rossi finally opened up, trusting the man to be discreet. Luckily for him the man was not only discreet, but mentioned the name of a man who could help. "old Joshua Harris"
the patient told him. So it was shortly after that Dr. Rossi finally visited Fucking Gulch. Over the next few months of regular visits, Joshua Harris saw the kind of man Rossi was, and offered him a job at the brothel. That was over three years ago, and since Dr. Rossi has lived a very quiet and successful double life. By day he's Dr. Sean Rossi, recovering alcoholic, and friendly and successful town doctor. But by night he's known just as 'doc,' the cook/bartender at the Fucking Gulch's basement lounge. Of course he also tends to the health of the clients and staff of the brothel, as well as occasionally taking on other duties. But one thing is certain, whether or not he's 'doc' or Dr. Sean Rossi, the man is finally happy with his life. His already handsome features are now rarely without a smile on his rugged face.Appearance:
Dr. Sean Rossi works out regularly, refuses to touch drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes, claiming that he beat those demons once and won't go through it again. Though anyone close to him realizes that his three times a week workout routine is as much of an addiction to him as cigarettes are to another. He's in great shape for his age, and easily has a body better than a man ten years younger. But age is starting to show, his temples and facial hair shows grey if he lets them (he dyes his hair) and he sometimes complains of joint pain when the weather is bad. Almost as if he took to the rural mythology, he claims he can tell when it's about to storm based on his 'bad shoulder.'
