Brotherhood of the Edge
Joel Smith was a master doctor who was employed by the empire to serve the wounded imperial soldiers. He was well respected in the medical community and it was even said that no disease or injury was a match for Joel. Not only was he a master at his trade, he also had a kind heart, caring for all those who were injured. However, this sympathy was not shared by the empire. While in the heat of battle, Joel took pity on the rebel soldiers and started healing them. The empire saw this as an act of treason and proceeded to execute him and his wife, who assisted him.
Joel was a major influence on John. John aspired to be a doctor just like his father, and Joel put his son through medical school to help him aspire this dream. He also tried to teach his son about the value of life and the importance of healing others. When he died, John vowed to finish his studies so that he can take his fathers place. He also wants to seek revenge on for the death of his parents.
