Randolph is in good health and has recently been diagnosed with glaucoma. He lives with his wife, Barbara, in a Victorian house in a large city in the UK. Randolph used to work for an IT company, but took early retirement some years ago. He occasionally does some freelance work for his ex-employer and values the flexibility that retirement offered him. Barbara has early onset dementia, her condition is now worsening, and its future developments will affect them both since Randolph is her informal caretaker. Randolph is very health-aware. He works out a couple of times a week for an hour or two at the gym near his home.
