Doc (ドク, Doku?) is one of the main character of the series. He is a Researcher hailing from the Artemis Institute, and serves as the "brains" of the main group of sorcerers. Despite his inherent cowardice, Doc genuinely cares about Seth, Melie and the rest of his companions and will often risk himself for their sake - much to his chagrin.
After molting, Doc's body is reduced to that of of a newborn. He eventually rectifies the issue by using an Aging Potion that increases his body maturity to a child's. In this state, Doc's face is clean-shaven and smooth like a typical kid. He is of average height for his age, and sports a slim build.He wears a cyan shirt with thin, dark blue stripes. Below, Doc has typically wear blue slacks with black slings that rises upward and fastens around the shoulders. The researcher also has matching blue boots, and wears a double tie around his neck. In this state, Doc's brown hair is well-kempt and put together.
Doc is a middle-aged man with an overweight build. He has an underdeveloped mustache that is sparsely haired on the opposite ends atop of his upper lip. Doc's face is best characterized by his tiny pupils and big eyes that are often highlighted when he's afraid or panicking.He has unkempt, fuzzy brown hair and can typically be found wearing a striped blue shirt, blue slacks and boots. The slacks have black slings that connect to shoulders. He also typically wears a unique, doubled necktie. As a result of Doc's curse, over time he begins to molt. Once molted, he's reborn as a toddler from his old body.
Doc is extremely cowardly, and values self preservation above all else. His timid nature never ceases to manifest at even the slightest hint of danger, much to the dismay of allies. Doc's fearful persona is so great that it serves as the basis for his attraction to the researching profession. As a result of his fear of dying when facing a Nemesis, Doc instead pursued a lifestyle as a Nemesis Researcher specialist as they don't often fight threats directly.
As a result of Doc's remarkable lack of luck, he's grown to be somewhat pessimistic, and often assumes the worse case scenario no matter what situation he encounters. This pessimism plays into his paranoia, as he typically feels that the universe is out to get him, and that any dangerous encounter may actually be his last.
He is known to be extremely sheepish, especially when around women he finds attractive, such as Mrs. Melba. Doc always finds himself flustered and fails to muster up the courage needed to confess his love to the barista. In the few instances when he manages to do so, his "confessions" are often meek and lacking in conviction, which leads to Ms. Melba taking his comments in a different light than intended.
