So A bit of a canonical rewrite.
The Original Story:
Chip's a doctor by trade, he has a girlfriend/wife/mate named Kiddo. Pretty boring, Kiddo's a rarely used character who gets no screen time at all.
The New Story:
Chip's a doctor by trade. He helps run a clinic local to where he lives, and handles the whole of the patients. Eventually the count of sick people increases to the point that hiring a new doctor is necessary. Enter a female graduate, Kiddo. She runs her side of the clinic in her own style; instead of fixing patients as soon as possible and going the easiest and quickest path to recovery, she is curious and analytical, wanting to make sure that a problem stops with her appointment. She often will have a patient go further than what a normal doctor will, but she tends to cause permanent recovery. ...she loves teasing her colleague about her victories. Chip however doesn't seem to enjoy such activity.
