Austin (Roger Howarth) showed up in May, 2021. He was living in Pautauk, where he grew up, and found Maxie about to give birth in the nearby woods. He delivered her child and ended up moving to Port Charles. His parents are the late Jimmy Lee Holt and Charity Gatlin (characters from the show back in the 1980’s). Although he is a dedicated doctor, he’s a bit of a strange person – quirky – and is not entirely honest. He has used people when it suits his needs and can be a bit sleazy.
Austin has been revealed to be the grandson of Edward Quartermaine (Jimmy Lee was his illegitimate son) and tried to prove that he was an heir to part of the family fortune. In the meantime, Britt hired him at General Hospital.
He is good friends with Maxie, the late Britt, and Ava. He helped Ava cover up Nikolas’ near-death. His family in Pautauk is involved with the mob. He is threatened by his cousin Mason. Not much else is known about him so far.
