Face of: Johns Hopkins (page 392)

Deep in the basement of the Meyer Building on the campus of Johns Hopkins Hospital, forensic pathologist Dr. Allison Ralston toils away in relative anonymity. She has little regard for formal hospital procedure, which led to her exile in the basement. Provided she publishes once or twice a year, her superiors rarely bother to check up on her. She is also an active member of the Dupin Society and uses her position at the hospital to perform unofficial post-mortems and other medical examinations vital to their mission as recorders of supernatural events. She’s not above doing other off-the-books work, such as treating injuries of heroic monster hunters who get a bit banged up in the course of their work. She’s a regular at Neutral Grounds
