Personal History

Dr. Lapham was born Sevenoaks, Kent, England. He grew up in a relatively poor family, but was blessed with an intellect that paid his way through University. He never had to work a day until his internship. Despite this, he feels a little more entitled to respect for clawing his way from the bottom. He specialized in orthopaedic surgery, and settled into a cushy job in Eastbourne. There he met and married his wife, Suzanne, and had had one daughter, Anita. Unfortunately, this didn't last very long, and didn't see them again after Anita's fifth birthday.
Late in his career he made the decision to move to New Zealand to escape the dreary English weather, and the frigid English women. When the world went pear-shaped, he stayed in Christchurch a while, knowing that he would always be useful to someone and could keep comfortable. When the more violent people started to take over a little more, he decided it was probably better for his safety to move to a smaller town.
