Why did you pick that name?
Galen means “healer”. He is a neuroscientist who is trying to develop much-needed medical treatments.
Give us a brief description of how he looks.
He is tall, pale, dark hair, a runner. Though not conventionally handsome, women consider him appealing, because he is a little naive, but smart and committed.
Is there anything unusual about his appearance?
When he gets insecure, his shoulders hunch, like he wants to be back in the lab looking over a microscope, in the world he understands.

His daughter and his company. His company is founded on a treatment for the kind of stroke which killed his first love. But that was just a catalyst; he is truly passionate about science and what it can do for medicine.
Does this person love him?
His daughter wants to love him, but she doesn’t know him.
Tell us about his family. Are they important to him?

Does his hometown affect his behavior, thoughts and attitude?
He has a deep insecurity rooted in his background.

What's his biggest secret? (Only share if it isn't a spoiler in the story.)
Did you write more than one story about him?

Is there anything else about your hero that we need to know? Feel free to share.
