Probably early 30's.
YEARS ON FORCE:
Turnbull is an enigma. Although one must pass rigorous para-military training in
order to become a Mountie, Turnbull displays seemingly little intelligence. He is
frequently seen doing minor office tasks, some of which he seems incapable of
managing. He is a klutz at times (he broke an expensive vase). However, his grasp
of O&C ('obfuscation and confusion') is his biggest asset. By simply obeying orders
and answering the phone, he can induce the strongest of men to wish they could reach
out and strangle the Mountie.
No family has ever been mentioned.
No former loves have ever been mentioned.
He appears to hero-worship Fraser. No other friends have been shown.
He once knocked himself running into a wall at the Consulate (Easy Money).
Has been seen exclusively in the red serge uniform.
- Has stood guard duty outside the Consulate. (Perfect Strangers)
- He can deal with criminals but not small children, who tied him ala "Gulliver."
- Is fiercely protective of the official red serge, and will speak his mind, even
toward superior officers. (Mountie on the Bounty, pt. 2).
- Obsessed with the sport of curling, and was willing to engage in a fistfight with
Stanley Kowalski to protect the sport's honor. (Asylum)
- Dedicated to the Queen. (Burning Down the House).
- Likes to cook. (Easy Money)
- Likes to draw and paint (he's learning oils). (Easy Money)
- Is a big country/western fan. (Mountie Sings the Blues)
