Julian grew up with his father being largely absent from his childhood due to his dedication to St. Equis Hospital. Blaming the hospital for stealing his father from him and his mother, Julian developed a hatred for the horses and the hospital.
As an adult, his father announced his retirement from the hospital and gave the ownership over to Julian. Julian quickly announced the closing of the hospital, instead replacing it with a robot yogurt place or a neon sign shop. This horrified the hospital staff, and Beth attempted to reason with him, but failed as Julian expressed his hatred for horses in general.
He returned later that night and ordered Beth to stop the surgery, which she refused. Julia, along with Beth, Sandy and Tom are held at gunpoint by Mr. Kwinanes, the owner of a horse which died earlier that day. Julian attempted to calm the man down, and soon finds a new love for horses after seeing a baby foal. He expressed his wish to keep the hospital open, but was cut short as police arrived and shot Mr. Kwinanes arm, causing him to shoot Julian through the head.
Julian was a nasty man with his hatred for St. Equis and horses in general. He found horses ugly and considered their lives unimportant. He did not care for the staff at St. Equis as he announced its closing. He did not seem to like his father much, feeling that he abandoned him and his mother during Julian's childhood.
