Harold is a doctor who left the medical profession for politics. He’s a state senator
who represents a cluster of suburbs outside Chicago. Borderline corrupt, he’s closely
tied to medical and pharmaceutical lobbies, who backed his challenge to the district’s former representative after he blocked legislation to authorize an eminent
domain seizure to build a research park. He’s a moderate who’s less interested in
policy than in getting influence and kickbacks from his profession. He was never an excellent doctor anyway—he could lie and bully his way through administrators with ease, but the tactic was less effective with patients.

Kelly Johnson is Dr. McKrie’s staffer. She formerly worked as a corporate investigator for a local branch of a pharmaceutical company, but lost her job when rival companies learned the details of her work. One of Harold’s contacts pointed him in her direction, suggesting that her background in corporate espionage would be useful in keeping tabs on trends in the statehouse. She’s worked for him for two years and has proved useful for making friends and staying ahead of rivals.
