GURPS After the End: Doctor and Bodyguard

With the release of GURPS After the End 1: Wastelanders, I thought I'd present a couple characters built using the templates in that book. So here are a Doc (with the Learned lens, twice) and her Trooper ally (reduced from the standard template to 50% the Doc's total).
