Nahn'si Stek'r had a promising medical career ahead of her at the beginning of the Galactic Civil War. Stationed at the main medical center on the mid-rim world of Kammlott, she treated anyone who needed aid, without hesitation. Although a law-abiding galactic citizen, she sympathized with the Rebellion To Restore The Republic, and provided clandestine medical aid to wounded rebels.
Her promising medical career was cut short, however, the morning when Imperial Field Marshal Velko and his stormtroopers entered her medical facility looking for information on a suspected local rebel cell. Accused of treason against Emperor Palpatine's New Order, Velko threatened Stek'r with imprisionment unless she revealed the location of the rebels or the names of their leaders. When Stek'r denied any knowledge of the rebels' location or identities, Velko's troops tortured and killed all of the patients in her care and her entire medical staff. Stek'r was left alive to pass on the message to her "rebel friends" that Velko would be coming for them next.
Velko ordered Stek'r's medical license be revoked. Devestated, and defeated, Stek'r was left with nowhere to turn but the very rebel agents who's identities she had protected from Velko. She dropped out of public view and joined the local rebel cell as their resident medic. Early in her tenure with the rebels, her cell's base was attacked by Velko's forces. Velko had recieved the location of the hidden rebel base from an underworld informant and was out to make a name for himself by eradicating the rebels with his own private squad. During the raid, Velko was injured by a stray blaster bolt to the wrist, and cowardly hid while his troopers were cut down by the rebels who's numbers he had greatly underestimated. Velko stumbled into the rebels' makeshift medbay looking for a bacta patch for his wrist when he ran into Stek'r as she was evacuating the patients in her care. She felled Velko with a stun blast and laid him out on the floor. The last thing Velko saw was the look of cold fury on Stek'r's face as she stood over him with a hypospray in her hand. When a larger Imperial force arrived to investigate the disappearance of Velko's squad, a grisly discovery was made in the medbay. Upon finding Velko's body, eyes wide, face twisted into a silent scream, the ranking officer commented on how unusual it was for someone to have died in such obvious agony from a blaster burn that barly grazed his wrist...
Stek'r currently serves as the field medical officer for Galactic Intelligence: Joint Operations Elite, hand picked by General Madine for the compassion she shows for her fellow sentients as well as her vast medical skills. Her hatred for the Empire also had a hand in her selection...

I tried to match not only the colors of Doc v1 (check out her glasses
), but the general "feel" of the figure when I set about designing this entry in my reimagining of the G.I.Joe mythos. I also tried to make her as much of a functioning, practical, field medic as I could, hence all of the pouches. I always felt that Doc v1 should have at least had a medical bag to complement the tiny little pouch on the bottom of his stretcher.
As you can see, alot of time went into modding/painting every square centimeter of this figure and her accessories! Note that her medkit says "RESCUE" in Aurebesch along the bottom of the front cover as an homage to the original Lifeline figure
The top of her helmet says "MEDIC" in Aurebesch (read in decending order from the top of the crest down to her goggles).
Ready to save some lives:
A little bit of background reasoning on the use of a known earth symbol on this figure-
It has been brought up before whenever anyone makes a Star Wars medical-themed figure that the common earth symbol of the red cross would not be appropriate in the Star Wars Universe since not every species has red blood (the red cross is a universal symbol here on earth for blood- every culture/nationality recognizes this fact). However, in some established media (mostly comics) the red cross symbol has been featured on medical characters (some Clone medics seen in the Clone Wars issues of "Star Wars: Republic" come to mind right away) symply for the audience to recognize the function of said characters without having to be explicitly told. Following this example, I have taken the artistic license of also utilizing the red cross symbol on this custom.
