aspiring professional wrestler. He is kindhearted, hulking, and very much in
love with his wife. Nikki first met Dwight at his going away to college party
but convinced him to follow his hearts dream and so they both headed for Las
Vegas to pursue their fortunes. Dwight made his wrestling debut as The Crybaby,
dressed in a school boy’s blazer and shorts; while Nikki danced in a number of
unremarkable floor shows. Along the way, the White’s faced problems. Dwight lost
his medical insurance and had to stop wrestling until he got a new policy; and
Nikki was asked to dance topless or take a month off without pay. But Dwight and
Nikki’s love for each another helped keep everything together. Although very
much in love, sometimes, Dwight and Nikki’s sex life suffered because of their
conflicting work schedules. But, when Nikki had a chance for romance she didn’t
let anyone get in her way. She once told her friend Luna "You’re standing
directly between me and my husband, and if you don’t move, I swear I will have
sex right through you." The villain in the piece is Dwight’s mother Marion, who
disliked Nikki for detouring her boys college education. But, eventually, she

Dr. Who is an eccentric genius from the planet Gallifrey, whom among others of
his race controlled the secrets of the fifth dimension-Time. Known as a Time
Lord, the Doctor roamed through the centuries as sort of an intergalactic
advisor & troubleshooter. However, his actions were not condoned by his fellow
Time Lords. It had been their established policy not to interfere in the events
of any civilization, but merely to observe them. Bored with the laws of
non-intervention, the Doctor illegally commandeered a time travel unit known as
a TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) and set out to explore and
interact with the myriad mazes of the universe. When his fans first met him, Dr.
Who was 745 years old. His favorite snack food is Jelly Babies.
