Dr. Charles DeRenne
Though once an esteemed man in the medical field, Charles DeRenne has spiraled drastically downward. After his long-term girlfriend, Ariadne walks out of his life, DeRenne is positively sunken in depression and delirium.

With only weeks left to live, Ariadne is looking for any chance to get outside and have things her way. Though she is still sore over the split with DeRenne, she doesn’t prevent him visiting. It may be a nice opportunity to make amends with the man she once loved…or to at least hop in his car and not look back.
