Rippers: Doctor Percy Trevelyan

Doctor Percy Trevelyan

Born: April 14, 1857
Place of Birth: Reading, Berkshire
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 161 lbs

Percy Trevelyan’s childhood was not a happy one, before he entered his teens his mother had died from disease and his father been committed to the Colney Hatch Asylum.

Somehow Percy managed to defy the odds and was adopted by an upper class family of doctors. Despite having missed years of education, young Trevelyan eventually ended up on a scholarship at The London Hospital Medical College. He has since then established himself as a promising doctor within the recently discovered field of psychology.

When his adopted parents also died, Trevelyan used his inheritance to set up a private clinic in Brook Street, Mayfair, London. His younger half-sister means the world to him and is his link to his dead adopted parents. When their parents died, she moved in with their aunt.

Dr. Trevelyan never forgot his poor childhood, so when the opportunity arose to do charity work at Stepney Workhouse, the young doctor volunteered. Hoping to somehow help the mentally ill and use his skills rather than listen to the imaginative problems of the rich.

During his time there Trevelyan has experienced several cases of inmates talking about creatures in the night. Normally these things are dismissed out of hand, but Dr. Trevelyan started to look further into their tales, and found that the mad men were indeed telling the truth. Convinced that his  father, still locked away at Colney Hatch must have experience something similar, the good doctor has devouted his life to finding out the truth about these creatures and the effect they have on mankind.
