Sharon, who has been belly dancing for several years, is 5' 8" (1.73 m) tall, has blonde hair, blue eyes, and a mole on the right of her lower lip. A hospital staff nurse, she was wearing a belted white dress uniform with short sleeves, white shoes and stockings, and a white cap with a black band when she came aboard the TARDIS. (Casting call: Anne Francis who played Sharon Martin, R.N. in the Columbo episode A Stitch in Crime.)
GEAR: in addition to her wrist watch, Sharon has a stethoscope in her left pocket and a holster holding a ballpoint pen, a penlight, bandage scissors, and hemostat on her uniform belt.
This character, like the other one, has areas of expertise for skills less than level 3.
One trick to the Doctor Who game that took me a while to figure out, what that although the skills are very broad, you're supposed to limit how you use those skills to the life experience of your character.
So, for instance, having levels in Craft skill looks like your should be just as good at every possible Craft application there is, you're not. Sharon Martin is a belly dancer, so she can apply her Craft skill to that activity, but unless she's also a painter she probably can't use her Craft for painting.
So rather than specifying an area of expertise to show what they're good at, just put this information in their Background. Save areas of expertise for things at which they truly excel.
Great character. I'm a nurse in RL, so I'd say her Medical skills are about right. If she works in a specific ward, or part of the hospital (mental, cardio, pediatrics, etc.) you could up her one there.
Thanks for the kind words. Sharon, whose looks are now based on those of Jill Danko, actress Kate Jackson, in the old ABC TV series "The Rookies" is an ER nurse at Pittsburgh's Presbyterian University Hospital. While on a meal break, she went out onto the hospital's driveway to catch a breath fresh air and ended up in an adventure. (Being from Pittsburgh, and having passed through the hospital complex while delivering packages for the University of Pittsburgh, I'm familiar with the area.)
