Biography

Raf's murder

On 5 December 2017, with the arrival of the eminent neurosurgeon John Gaskell, Essie suggested that Raf seize the opportunity to "impress the impressive". However, she quickly began to feel superstitious when a pregnant woman with superfoetation named Rosie was brought onto AAU, and Raf was forced to utilise ECMO, a technique he had introduced to the hospital; her feelings on unease later disappeared after Raf managed to successfully perform an emergency caesarean on Rosie and save her and all three of her babies.

Later that day, the hospital was put on lockdown after Fredrik Johanssen walked onto AAU with a loaded rifle, and Essie, Sacha, Hanssen and Gaskell were forced to operate on Jac Naylor, who had been shot in the back, in Gaskell's wet laboratory with improvised instruments. After Essie was escorted upstairs to retrieve equipment, she became concerned when Rosie was discovered with shrapnel injuries and without Raf. Once Fredrik was neutralised by armed police, and the hospital's lifts were reinstated, Essie was initially relieved to find a voicemail from Raf, but her feelings of relief quickly turned into horror when Raf explained that he had been shot in the neck and was unlikely to be saved. Raf's body was discovered in the lift and was subsequently taken to the morgue. (HC: "Group Animal - Part Two")
