Lieutenant Ashley Callahan
Dr Callahan may, at times, seem to fall short of what most consider to be an ideal bedside manner, but is by no means indifferent or uncaring towards her patients.
Ashley was born to a family that ran a highly successful business empire, extending from its operational headquarters on Virgon to the other Colonial planets of the Helios Beta system. From a young age, the expectation was for her to eventually take over the family business, but adolescence led her to other interests – namely the sciences. Although she was seen to have rebelled against her parents’ wishes, Katherine employed the ingrained family traits of exceptional academic performance and diligence through to medical school and post-graduate training in emergency medicine.
