Late 30s, early 40s
Mix-blooded Echidna (undetermined parentage)
LEAVE BLANK WILL FILL IN
Sterling was originally created to show the negative repercussions of Soul Touch on age differences. As a middle-aged Echidna, he was love-bonded to the young son of his family friends, Dorian Gildalily. Though he made every effort to remain platonic and friendly, both for the sake of his own station in life, and out of respect for his friendship with the Gildalily dynasty, the star-crossed pair eventually developed their love-bond within a few years of making the connection.

Sterling arrived on the scene youthful for his age, but soft-spoken and passive. He was valued as a wise perspective, a voice of reason, and got along easily with the Gildalilys. While he didn't follow any particular religious practices, he holds Gaia's laws as his personal creed, and remained fairly mild in temperament as a result of it. Not given to great passions, then, it came as quite the shock for him to find 'Soultouch' and be swept into something new and vivid and tumultuous.

Sterling's youth and scholastic years have little relevance to his point of arrival on the public consciousness. He was quiet, disciplined, and law-abiding, and there was little in the way of public record on him. He went to a distinguished medical school, graduated in the top 10 students in his class, completed a mandatory 2 years of active duty, where he sustained a minor injury, and moved into private practice.
Ostensibly a surgeon, Sterling found the greatest joy in providing long-term care and forming close-knit relationships with a few families. Servicing the city's elite, he lived comfortably and quietly with little thought to finding a wife, and his greatest pleasure was finding time to read through his collection of classics, largely philosophy and discourses from ancient eras before.
All this changed when he formed his bond with young Dorian Gildalily, the son of a client family. He'd been responsible for helping to deliver the egg, and he'd provided pre and post-natal care for the young puggle, securing a close friendship with the Gildalily family in the process. It was only after several years of treating the puggle that their 'Soul Touch' went into effect during an otherwise routine examination. It took as little as a shared glance to seal their fates. He kept his calm and ended their exam with the promise of completion at a later point, when he could expect himself to be more composed.
Repeated encounters only confirmed what he already knew: he had been permanently tied with someone a good thirty years younger than him, and that 'soul-mate' wasn't even five years old. The gender consideration mattered less than the age issue, and the obvious breach of doctor-patient relations under the banner of his code-of-practice. He resolved to gently discourage the pair of them from getting into anything too dangerous, but found, instead, that his thoughts and life warped to focus upon Dorian, and worried that the younger was undergoing the same treatment. Very importantly, however, he'd neglected to inform the Gildalilys of this bond, fearing that he would be completely cut off from communications. This lack of trust later came back to bite him.
