This is David Aickman. He’s an orthopedic surgeon. If you needed (or wanted) an amputation, you’d go to a doctor like David. He’s not a bad guy, but like a lot of surgeons he’s a bit arrogant, a bit fond of getting his own way.
This is David’s wife, Joan. She’s a pediatrician — kind, compassionate, caring. Joan is such a nice person, it’s hard to imagine anything terrible happening to her.
This is Adriana Jeffries. She’s a psychiatrist. She knows David and Joan from having gone to med school with them. They haven’t seen her in years. One wonders what she’s been up to in all that time!
