Charlotte Emmeline LeClerc
<Played by Jay>
Full Name>> Charlotte Emmeline LeClerc
Nicknames>> Lottie, Emmy, Charlie
Date of Birth>> 03/22/1957
Staff or Student>> Staff School Nurse, Head of Green Ribbon
House>> Green Ribbon House
Face Claim>> Sharon Small
Personality>> Lottie is a fun-loving woman with a sense of humour but she can be strict and no-nonsense when required; in fact, the change between the two can be so sudden that some are surprised or even scared. She has a sarcastic sense of humour and loves practical jokes, but nothing is more important to her than her work and she performs her duties with absolute exactitude. She has great fun with her job, and loves to laugh and joke with the students, which she can do more easily than her more academic colleagues. Her French nature leads her to be emotional about things, and she tends to make snap judgements.
Lack of hygiene
Being responsible for someone's death
Hopes>> To find herself a boyfriend
To remain at Blue Ridge for a long time
Secrets>> She was once fired for slapping a junior doctor- she's not ashamed of confronting him, but rather of doing so violently
Appearance>> Lottie is a tall and fairly slim woman with hair, once blonde but now fading to grey due to her advancing age and the stress of her career. Her face is more wrinkled than it once was and her skin is brown with exposure to the sun, but her eyes are still sharp and have a permanent humorous twinkle. Her nails are kept short and she seldom wears makeup; the legacy of a medical career. When she is not wearing her working clothes, she tends to wear jeans and a blouse since a hardworking life has led her to appreciate what leisure time she can get.
Markings>> Pierced ears, small scars on fingers from use of scalpel
Medical History>> Broken leg falling out of an ambulance, laryngitis in her twenties
Full History>> Lottie was born in Boulogne, France, and studied medicine at university. In her twenties, she took up a career as a Casualty doctor in the UK, where there were more opportunities for advancement, and her night-school English soon improved to the point where her accent was barely perceptible, which was sometimes a benefit when dealing with the ever-so-slightly racist Saturday night alcoholic. She spent ten years in a Birmingham hospital, but had to leave due to NHS funding cuts, and moved further north, where she took up a position as a consultant. This time, however, she lasted only five years before having a violent disagreement with a junior doctor who was attempting to administer the wrong medication to a patient. He was, as it transpired, drunk at the time, as Lottie had half suspected in any case. Still, it was obvious that she could not remain where she was, and so she left her job. Disheartened, she decided to retrain as a nurse in America, since she felt that a totally fresh start was called for. She spent some time in a New York hospital, this time on a paediatric ward, before taking up a post in a boarding school- because the pay was better. However, she quickly discovered that she disliked the spoiled and opinionated rich children who boarded there, and when she learned of the opening at Blue Ridge, decided to try her luck there.
