Character Bio

Doctor Lucien Blake photo
Lucien left Australia in his 20's to study medicine in Scotland. After graduating in 1931, he did a stint in a London hospital before joining the British Army as a medical officer. Come World War II, Lucien served in many places - especially the Far East. Unbeknown to his family, he fell in love with and married a Chinese woman and they had a child. But at the fall of Singapore, he lost them both.

From here on, Dr Lucien Blake’s life is somewhat of a mystery. He is clearly a well-traveled, educated man of the world - but one who has seen the worst that men can do to each other. His time in Thailand’s Ban Pong POW camp triggers recurring nightmares. The photo of his missing wife hidden in an old wooden chest both comforts and torments him.

After a 33-year absence, Blake returns home to take over his late father’s medical practice and continue the family tradition. Outwardly, Lucien is the community’s moral compass in an age of change … a trusted voice in uncertain times. Privately, he is a man cursed with firsthand knowledge of man’s inhumanity to man. Perhaps, not surprisingly, he doesn’t fit in anywhere, but getting justice for those who can’t speak for themselves helps calm the demons. Bit by bit, Blake’s active mind twigs to the unexpected worth of finding a new life in his old world.
