Full Name: Zachary Daniel Freeman. Nickname/Alias: Zach, Zachy, Dr. Freeman Age/Date Of Birth: 08 - 15 - 1975 | Thirty-Nine-Years-Old Race: Human Occupation: ER Doctor. Species Group: Civilian Play-By: Joshua Jackson
Emergency medicine is a medical specialty involving care for undifferentiated, unscheduled patients with acute illnesses or injuries that require immediate medical attention. While not usually providing long-term or continuing care, emergency physicians undertake acute investigations and interventions to resuscitate and stabilize patients.
They must have the skills of many specialists—the ability to resuscitate a patient (critical care medicine), manage a difficult airway (anesthesia), suture a complex laceration (plastic surgery), reduce (set) a fractured bone or dislocated joint (orthopedic surgery), treat a heart attack (cardiology), manage strokes (neurology), work-up a pregnant patient with vaginal bleeding (obstetrics and gynecology), stop a bad nosebleed (ENT), place a chest tube (cardiothoracic surgery), and to conduct and interpret x-rays and ultrasounds (radiology)
Physicians specializing in emergency medicine can enter fellowships to receive credentials in subspecialties such as palliative care, critical-care medicine, medical toxicology, wilderness medicine, pediatric emergency medicine, sports medicine, disaster medicine, tactical medicine, ultrasound, pain medicine, pre-hospital emergency medicine, or undersea and hyperbaric medicine. Zach has all of the above.
Special items that are bought from the store will go here.
Likes: ❤ Quietness and Peace. ❤ Keep things ordered and clean. ❤ Riding his bike ❤ Swimming.
Dislikes: ✗ Rudeness and profanity ✗ All forms of violence (Especially against children and women) ✗ Disloyalty ✗ People questioning Lucien or trying to hurt him.
Fears: ☬ Aichmophobia – fear of sharp or pointed objects (such as a needle or knife). This is a kind of specific phobia, the morbid fear of sharp things, such as pencils, needles, knives, a pointing finger, or even the sharp end of an umbrella. It is derived from the Greek aichmē (point) and phobos (fear). This fear may also be referred to as belonephobia or enetophobia.
Some people are afraid only of particularly sharp knives, such as chef knives or hunting knives. Some fear all knives. Others are afraid of pins and needles. Some people fear all objects that they perceive as sharp, including umbrella points, paper clips and clothes hangers. In general, the worse the phobia is, the more items that are perceived as triggers.
Zach is particularly afraid of cooking knives and cutting himself.
☬ Aquaphobia is a persistent and abnormal fear of water. Aquaphobia is a specific phobia that involves a level of fear that is beyond the patient's control or that may interfere with daily life. People suffer aquaphobia in many ways and may experience it even though they realize the water in an ocean, a river, or even a bathtub poses no imminent threat. They may avoid such activities as boating and swimming, or they may avoid swimming in the deep ocean despite having mastered basic swimming skills. This anxiety commonly extends to getting wet or splashed with water when it is unexpected, or being pushed or thrown into a body of water.
Goals: ★ To show eveyone the way of Lucien ★ To be a nicer person. ★ To stay on the wagon.
He is a perfectionist. But mostly he demands perfection from others rather from himself or at least he did before meeting Lucien. Zachary honestly tries to be a better guy. But, he has too many flaws that sometimes he refuses to see; one of them, being his own pride. Zachary has problems controlling his moods particularly his bad temper. He is easily upset at random times for random reasons and he will yell at people over nothing. He has a bit of an issue when he gets upset and he has a hard time calming down but, in general when he is in a good mood he is quite easy going. He feels very protective of Lucien and some of the other followers especially the younger ones. He tries his best to be helpful and to spread the word about Lucien.
Previously to him meeting Lucien, he was an atheist he didn’t hold a faith of any kind and believed God did not exist. While Zachary does not believe Lucien has created all that exist or that he is omniscient and omnipresent. He firmly believes he is here to save mankind. Because through Lucien he has been introduced to forces beyond his knowledge he has changes his views. He believes Lucien came to be to save mankind and save them from the path of self destruction. His faith in Lucien is absolute and he has a low tolerance for people who question or mock Lucien. He'll easily write off someone who refuses to believe or accept Lucien in any way.
Zachary is a doctor and as such he can also help people using his knowledge of medicine. He started on the career because he wanted to make a lot of money but he discovered he liked to help others. He is actually very nice and kind to his patients and rarely ever gets moods around them. He had a bit of a hard childhood and he rarely speaks about it. He dislikes talking about his previous experiences and dislikes the idea of seeing himself as a victim or being seen an treated as one. He always gets ass drunk on his birthday and gets winter depression.
Positives: ✧ He is kind and protective of kids. ✧ Empathetic to victims of abuse. ✧ Likes nursing anyone back to health.
Negatives: ✦ Temperamental ✦ Difficult very prideful personality. ✦ Does not allow or likes to be helped by others.
Parents: Nial and Mia Freeman. Siblings: No. Other Family: Grandparents, uncles, aunts lots of cousins and nephews. Important Others: The other members of the cult and Lucien. History: Zachary was born on a cloudy afternoon his mother died of an untreated post partum infection and he was left under the care of his father when he was just a baby. His father would drink a lot. His father believed in hardening the young boy and he would often employ brutal methods to enforce discipline such as ice baths, sleeping out in the cold, forced fastening, electrics shocks with a stunt baton, and forced the boy to move up and down on the stairs until he fainted from exhaustion. Zachary greatly disliked his father and when he turned eighteen he left the house to never speak or search the man again. To this day, he remains estranged from his father and the rest of his family.
Because he started to work to support himself right after high school. He did not start to study medicine as he intended until he was 21 years old. He however proved very adept at learning and even though he worked and studied he managed to finish and get his medical degree. He realized he liked to be able to help people and quickly decided that he wanted to work as an ER doctor. During his rotations he would see a lot of victims of domestic violence. More than once he broke doctor-patient confidentiality and anonymously reported the abuse. Zachary fell in love of a woman when he was 32 and he was about to propose to her when he discovered she was cheating on him with one of his friends from the hospital.
He resigned from the hospital in Augusta and moved to Atlanta. He got a position as ER chief and he would supervise other doctors in the ER. It was there than one fateful night a man came with a bullet wound to the head. The doctors took him and did everything they could to save him but, it was obvious he would not survive such a serious injury. Suddenly a man walked past the hospital security. Zachary had no idea how this man sneaked in or if he was a relative of the man. But, what happens next surprised Zachary and would change his life forever. The man healed the man. Just like, he had never been shot. Zachary dropped his jaw opened staring at the stranger. This was some serious Jesus, crap right there.
Everyone was scared of the stranger and his powers. But, Zachary wasn’t. He was quite fascinated and taken by Lucien. He went and talked with him briefly. Questioning him about the miracle he had just performed in front of him. There was something really alluring and captivating about Lucien because Zachary just followed him. He got on the bus with him and his other follower and left his life his belongings, his friendships everything behind. He didn’t even bothered stopping by his house and picking his things. Unlike some of the other followers he has started to distrust of Ruth Washington and keeps a watchful eye on her. He thinks she just wants to use Lucien for her own goals.
He had awoken to his own loud screaming. Now he was sitting with his back against the head of the bed gripping at the sheets with whitened knuckles. He shook his head closing his eyes and trying to calm down. It was just a dream... he was safe. A hand went to his chest as he breathed heavily. ‘You’re ok. You are safe. He can hurt you now.’ He looked over his shoulder to the empty side of the bed with a frown. He wished there was someone with him. He hated to be alone in nights like this. It wasn’t like he had a great personality because he didn’t. He wasn’t relationship material at all but, he disliked being alone.
He rubbed his arm against the cold sweat from his forehead and got out of the bed. He would drink some coffee. Maybe he would write a little until he was relaxed again. Maybe then he could sleep. Nights like this were hard he usually ended just not sleeping much; the nightmare had been so horrible he was sure he would only sleep very little and even if he slept more he would just dream of something awful again. He felt restless, sad and alone. In nights like this he mind would dwell in dark thoughts about ending it all. He walked barefoot to the kitchen and started to heat some water while his eyes looked at the fire in a daze.
He moved his finger... almost sticking it into the flame before he pulled back. He rubbed his hand over his face. “What are you doing?” - He said for himself. ‘Calm down, calm down you’ll get through this just like you have in the past.’ He sighed, feeling exhausted. He reached in the cupboard searching for a cup and then he went to get some instant coffee. It would taste like crap, like everything he did but at least it would help him to stay up. It would keep him from drifting into another nightmare. How he wished the nightmares would end someday. But, they never did. Nothing made them stop. And each time he had them they got worst and worst. His head was aching and he felt a tear sting in his left eye. Damn life.
