Doctor

Troopers with this Special Skill have the medical know-how to stabilize their unconscious comrades while on the field, saving their lives and returning them to active duty. This Special Skill has several Levels that reflect the user's depth of knowledge and access to top-of-the-line military medical gear.

In the military parlance of the Human Sphere, combat medics, soldiers qualified to practice battlefield medicine, are called 'Doctors' or just 'Docs'. These men and women have the extensive training and gear necessary to rescue their comrades from the clutches of death, and are shown more deference than a squad's Paramedic. Combat medics are tasked with providing first aid and trauma care on the ground, during evacuation of the injured and in field hospitals after combat. They also provide health-related counsel to the chain of command. But never forget that these Doctors are also trained as soldiers, and represent a fully functional and dangerous tactical threat.

Modern military medicine allows Docs to access their patient's Cube via comlog to read their biological record in addition to the information provided by the non-invasive metabolic monitors embedded on their uniforms. With these tools, the Doctor can make real-time diagnosis and come up with personalized treatments that include drugs that adapt to the patient's genome and metabolism to improve prognosis and minimize the chances of graft rejection and anaphylaxis.

The title 'Akbar' (from the Arabic أكبر, 'the great') is earned only by masters of the Tebb al Nabi, the Prophet's Medicine, the specific brand of biomedical science developed in Haqqislam. Tebb al Nabi melds science and philosophy, elevating a holistic understanding of Medicine to the category of art. Following its principles, cutting-edge biotech research is guided by a special intuition that stems from deep philosophical contemplation, and the results speak for themselves.

Doctor and Cube wearers

If the target is a trooper with a Cube, then the Doctor may expend one Command Token to reroll his failed WIP Roll. This Roll may be rerolled indefinitely as long as a Command Token is spent each time.

These rerolls take place during the same Order in which the Doctor Special Skill was declared, and generate no further AROs.
