HistoryIra was once a promising surgeon living in Illinois who ended up losing his license after a patient was killed during a botched surgery which Ira ended up taking the blame for.
He spent years as a toll booth operator until he fell into the world of criminal medicine. It turned out, he could make quite a living patching up criminals who would otherwise end up being reported to the authorities had they visited a real doctor. He first started out patching up bullet holes and stab wounds with improvised instruments.
Then he caught the attention of Johnny Castagnacci who was so impressed with his skill that he hired him on as his personal physician and helped him open an illicit practice. Some years later Johnny was able to "pull some strings" and get his license back to practice "legit medicine." However, this is a front. In reality Ira, or as many in the criminal underworld call him "Mr. Stitch," runs a medical practice where his clientele is primarily criminals.
