Biography Edit

David Lyman was a plastic surgeon, who operated out of an office in Los Angeles, California. One of his patients, was an unemployed actor named George Laszlo, who came in to get some work done on his nose and chin.

One evening in 2007, a T-888 Terminator known as Cromartie broke into Lyman's office. Doctor Lyman was working late that night, recording notes on one of his 33-year-old female patients when he heard Cromartie making noise in another room. Lyman entered the office and found Cromartie scanning through patient records on his computer. Nervously, he told the cloaked man that he had to leave. In a robotic voice, Cromartie told Lyman that he required plastic surgery. Lyman said that he needed to make an appointment for a consultation. At this, the Terminator exposed his face to him, revealing a noticeably non-human epidermal tissue. He forced Lyman to perform immediate surgery on him. From analyzing the patient records, he forced him to give him features resembling George Laszlo. After which, Cromartie broke Lyman's neck. [1]
