John Henry "Doc" Holliday (born August 14th, 1851) is a former best friend of the late Wyatt Earp, a current member of Black Badge Division. Doc is the son of the late Alice Holliday and the late Henry Holliday, the father of Alice Michelle Earp, the ex-boyfriend of Rosita Bustillos, and the love interest of Wynonna Earp.
Early Life Edit
When he was 14, his mother became bed-ridden, as she was dying from tuberculosis, so, as not to spread the disease, Doc was told he was unable to see her. However, as he was missing her, he crawled into the space under her room and night after night, he would listen to her cry, beg and pray. It's most likely doing this that caused him to develop tuberculosis too (he mentioned in No Future in the Past, that he got tuberculosis when he was 14). His mother unfortunately, passed away not long later and from that point onward, he could never again stand tight spaces (which was most likely why Constance Clootie chose to stick him down a well, over any other punishment).
Doc was made somewhat immortal on his death bed, curing his tuberculosis and making him ageless, by Constance Clootie. He now is looking to settle the score with Constance for throwing him down a well for 130 years.
The first time that Doc is seen is just his hand as he climbs out of the well he was in after Wynonna left the rope in the well after retrieving Peacemaker. The next time that we see him is when he starts chatting up Wynonna at Shorty's.
Doc is seen working with the Revenant. He's also met Waverly at Shorty's.
Having been stuck down a well on the Earp family land, Wynonna, while looking for Wyatt's peacemaker in a well, accidentally lets free Doc, who had been trapped down there for over 100 years. At first meeting ('Purgatory') in Shorty's, they start talking about Peacemaker, with Doc telling a story about Wyatt, Peacemaker, Doc Holliday's friendship with Wyatt (he did not hint of his true identity) and how Wyatt became a 'gunslinger'. Wynonna, hearing all of this information about her great, great grandfather, assumes that this new man is an Earp fan. Eventually, after learning that he was speaking to an Earp, he bids her a goodbye and walks away. She meets him and also talks about him a couple of times later, where she learns that he is calling himself 'Henry'. In 'Leavin' on Your Mind', Doc comes around to visit Wynonna at her house, where he decides to introduce himself honestly and tells her that he is, in fact, Doc Holliday which shocks her. In 'The Blade' he shows Wynonna proof that he is indeed 'The fastest gunslinger in the West' by showing off his moves to her. She believes him straight away. While arguing in a forest in 'Diggin' Up Bones', Doc decides to kiss Wynonna which she reciprocates. This is when they have sex for the first time. While at the diner ('Constant Cravings'), Waverly and Wynonna begin to discuss sex after Wynonna accidentally sees a 'dick pic' of Champ when snatching Waverly's phone. Wynonna then mentions that there's more to life than sex but, unknown to Waverly, turns it towards how great her sex with Doc was: "There's more to life than crazy, hot, toe-curling, out-of-body, back-into-body, 'angel singing hallelujah' sex". In turn, Waverly thinks Wynonna's talking about Dolls, incorrectly guessing who her sister slept with. Waverly finally finds out about who her sister had been sleeping with when Wynonna tells both Waverly and Nicole at the station (Nicole already knew) ('She Wouldn't Be Gone').
He is the long time best friend of Wyatt Earp. Wyatt felt betrayed by Doc because of his deal for immortality. The relationship between the two was left strained forever as Doc got trapped in a well and Wyatt died before they could repair it.
