Dr Eve Agius, Surgical Fellow

Eve is a 32-year-old surgeon. She is a Surgical Fellow which means that she is in her final year of surgical training and will soon be a specialist in General Surgery. All doctors at Eve's level are highly skilled, but are still loosely supervised by a surgical consultant.

There are very few female surgeons and it's a difficult journey for the women who decide to complete a surgical specialty. Eve is a good doctor and very empathetic. She works long hours and is usually tired. Like most medical staff she has developed a coldness and cynicism which allow her to cope with her grueling job. She can be cutting.

When she is tired she can be verbally clumsy she'll blurt things out then regret what she's said.

Eve is single but has been in serious relationships in the past. Her loneliness is engulfing her and she feels alone in a sea of men. She doesn't wear makeup (no time to put it on) and when she was younger was a good athlete.
