Late 30s :: local
patient :: honorable Michael Fassbender
This is James Blanchard. He is Clara's ever faithful husband. He was born in England and grew up in London where he attended Medical School. Most of his past history is completely open and up to you other than the fact he went to Med School and became a doctor.
After he finished getting his degree, he got a job working in a hospital. Right at the start of his career as a doctor, he met Clara. She had a sprained ankle and he treated it. He ended up asking for her number. A few days later they went out for coffee. And a few days after that they went out for a real date. For two years they dated. James was completely in love with Clara, and wanted to marry her. But her job wouldn't let her stay in London.
Clara broke up with him, but he promised to wait for her. For five years, he waited and remained faithful. Clara was the only one for him, and the thought of being with another woman was not even possible. Then one day she popped up back into his life unexpectedly. They ran into each other at Hyde Park. James knew his life was incomplete without her, so after an awkward reunion, he got down on his knee and asked her to marry him. Later that afternoon, they went to a jewelry store to pick out a ring together and they were married the next day.
For the first few years of their marriage, they traveled the world. Clara took photos and James opened up clinics to treat the less fortunate. But when Clara became pregnant with their first child, they new it was time to settle down. They moved to New York City where James worked at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. They lived there for three years, and just recently decided to relocate to Rhode Island.
Personality wise, he's very patient, honorable, kind, and trustworthy. He has to put up with a lot of Clara's craziness, but he loves her dearly. The two of them trust and love each other more than life itself.
ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: That sounds familiar. I used to be that way. I still am, but I've learned to let go a little.

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): Alec is too good to me, how did I deserve him. I'm such a perfectionist that I am afraid to screw up

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: Everyone screws up. I've screwed up so many times I can't even keep track, but you just have to pick yourself up and learn to forgive yourself which can be the hardest thing to do

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): Thank you so much Ellen. I know Alec is there to encourage me, but sometimes I feel he's put me on this great mother pedestal. I'm afraid of screwing up.

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: I wouldn't worry too much Emma. You're very maternal, something I never was, and I managed to do it alone. If you ever need to talk about parenting, I'm always here

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): I'm just worried about being a good mother. Since my own mother is no longer here to advice me. I just want to do her proud *nervous look*

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): well I think Alec will be worried when it comes to that age. He'll probably buy a shotgun and ward off any boy who comes a courting.

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: -laughs- you don't have to worry about that for a while. I told Victoria when she was going into sixth grade, but I think it also depends on the child
