Dr. Lance Sweets Psy.D., Ph.D.
Lance Sweets has been aiming to prove his worth practically all of life. Put in the foster system at an early age, Sweets was left in the hands of people who maltreated him. At the age of six, he was transferred to the home of an elderly couple who took much better care of him. That was where he was raised for the rest of his life, giving him a sense of self-esteem and the drive to succeed. His relationship with his parents left him with the belief that broken people can be saved by good hearts.
In his early teens he was already in college and before he was even 22 years old, he held a Masteral degree (abnormal psychology) from Temple University and two doctorates (clinical psychology & behavioral analysis) from the University of Pennsylvania. The impression of saving broken people left on him by his parents inspired him to become a psychologist. Not that he didn't care about his actual parents; when he reached the age of maturity he tried finding his birth mother, but could not find her. What he did know was that she was a circus performer, and to this day that's all he knows.
Sweets initially entered the Jeffersonian Institute for the FBI; he was to do an analysis as to whether or not Agent Seeley Booth and Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan could still work together after the former's arrest of the latter's father. While the pair originally did not take him seriously-Bones for his profession, Booth for his age-over time they built a friendship with him. While their recognition of Sweets' skill in profiling was a starting point, they formed a friendship over a recognition of Sweets' having taken a liking to them and common trust. When his then-girlfriend broke up with him, it was Booth and Brennan who helped Sweets the most. Farther down the line, the three had a moment wherein they shared their respective abusive life experiences, and by then Booth was a father figure to Sweets; along with Brennan, the three of them form a pseudo-family unit. Not that mush suddenly took over; if anything, their banter simply became the slightest bit more familiar, since discussing feelings was something Booth and Brennan constantly struggled with.
Today, Dr. Lance Sweets still works for the FBI, mostly with Booth and Brennan. It's something he wouldn't trade for the world.
