Born to a well to do Deep Gnome family in Virginia, Jebediah McClaren was always different from the rest of his peers. Following in his father’s footsteps, Jeb took interest in the healing arts at an early age. Jeb’s interest extended beyond simple remedies though: he developed an interest in the principles that governed nature and the body. His curiosity also kept him away from the various conflicts with dungar in the area, though he saw the aftermath of such conflicts working in his family’s shop.
Seeing his knack for book learning (and quickly running out books), the McClarens sent their son off to medical school. At first jeb had difficulty fitting in, but his diligence in his studies and eagerness to help earned him a good reputation among his peers. Jeb’s made friends on both sides of the Maison-Dixie line, putting him in the middle of the growing tensions between North and South. He was helpless as his friends fought, sometimes literally, over the same issues that where splitting the country. When the war came, the freshly graduated Dr. McClaren swore neutrality and joined the Red Cross.
Dr. McClaren hated the fighting, not the fighters. His hands held many men and boys in their dieing moments, lives wasted before his very eyes. He fought to save as many as he could, regardless of loyalty or status. Sometimes this fight was literal: he threw bombs at both armies when attacking his patients and take medical supplies as needed. He had no respect for the administration of the Red Cross, operating as he saw fit. There existed a mutual frustration between Dr. McClaren and the Red Cross, but they knew that they where better off working together during the war. When peace finally did come, Dr. Claren learned of it though his notice of termination.
Free from the bonds of the Red Cross, Dr. McClaren struck out on his own. McClaren had been stationed near New Orleans at the end of the war, so he used whatever money he had to start a practice. He quickly gained a reputation for generosity, as well as not asking too many questions. Overall this kept business good. It was as if Dr. McClaren had finally found his place in this world.
