Healer at the Burdock Private Practice (Known as the 'Old World Healer' by her colleagues.)This Character in possible settings for "Unwilling, Unexpected Help"Setting#1 In this setting the Burdock Private Practice is one of the largest Private Medical organizations in the city. It's known for it's state of the art technology and treatment facilities as well as a Wellness center for aftercare. Kiahvo was brought in partly for publicity as an 'Old World Healer' who doesn't use pharmaceuticals so much as natural herbs and such. Naturists of course eat it up and she happens to be one of few in the area who even practice 'Old World' Medicine. One of the newest gimmicks in modern meds are 'non harmful' radioactive markers that allow various tracking of patients who're taking specific meds or use certain branded supplies. So, if you want to stay under the radar, you have to use old world medicine. This turns out to be why your character wants her, because for -whatever- reason, he needs to stay low key, and he happens to know she'll know how to do it. So he veers off his path to snag her as he runs. Could be at her home or the office or some such. Setting#2 Burdock Private Practice is a no-name Medical facility in the outskirts of the city limits were most of their service is house-calls to further reaching estates. Kiahvo became a member of the Private Practice after saving the lives of their Mr. Burdock when he was out on vacation in a jungle. Fascinated and amazed he talked her into coming to join him and to learn about new medical technologies. He's an older man and a pioneer for medical advancements who's hoping to find Old World inspiration. It's pure happenstance that your character crosses paths with her, perhaps using their offices as his hide out at first, unaware someone's still there. When he finds out, he insists she help fix him up. Setting#3 A tangle of trouble. Burdock Private Practice is like the medical Walmart-- for all your healing needs. There are half a dozen in every major city and every one of them is required to have a Healer, someone trained in Old World Medicines. Never mind that Kiahvo's overqualified for what they require, they're just happy to get the spot filled. Most of her clients are the curious sort over the believers and practitioners. It makes her seek fulfillment elsewhere which sometimes puts her in shady places where people don't have doctors who will care for them. It's in a dark alley on her way home that she'd caught up in her own brand of trouble. Chased by a few men around the tight working of double-stack buildings when she crosses your character. Maybe literally running into him. Instinct causes him to kill or otherwise take out the guys following her which, sort of makes her feel obligated to help. Like she owes him, even if he doesn't say it.
