Soulmates found one story at a time.

Al is a mysterious man Bijou found injured one night when she was hunting for the Obayifo. 

He has dusky skin, dark, tangled hair, and brown eyes.

She convinced him to come to the emergency room, and now he comes there regularly to see her. Sometimes he has actual injuries, sometimes not. 

If he’s not hurt now, he has been in the past. His x-rays show almost every bone has healed fractures and there is a plug in his skull.
