Name:Doctor James Watson
Birthdate:Jan 6
Location:United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
James Watson was born in Victorian England and has, consequently, lived a long and full life. As a student at Oxford, he met a like-minded group of students (collectively known as The Five) bent on pushing the boundaries of science. Due to their experimentation, he was gifted with extra-human intelligence and, as a result of that, was able to artificially extend his life-span. Known to consult with Scotland Yard on particularly difficult cases, he was the inspiration for Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes character. While they bear little resemblance in terms of personality, Watson's genius must be experienced to be believed. He has been a key figure behind any number of scientific breakthroughs, always careful to make sure the credit was given elsewhere, and he has not been less active politically. The intervention of himself and the rest of the Five was instrumental in helping secure the Allied victory at Normandy on D-Day.

Watson has spent most of his long life at the side of Helen Magnus, a scientist he considers at least as brilliant as himself, head of the Five and founder of the Sanctuary Network, an organization dedicated to helping both humans with special abilities and things which go bump in the night. They were lovers for decades and have always remained very close friends and colleagues. Like the fictional Irene Adler, to him, she has always been "The Woman". Although they do not work as closely as they have in the past, his loyalty to her and her cause is absolute.

James is a recurring character from the SyFy Channel series Sanctuary (2008-2012). While James is deceased in the show's canon, it's my personal canon that Magnus saved his life after she went back in time, using Hollow Earth tech to heal most of his physical damage and allowing him to lead a relatively normal life. He now lives underground with her in the New Sanctuary, enjoying his second chance at life to the fullest.
