Personality & Traits

General Overview Generally easy-going, not one for formalities or what he refers to as “Damn foolish fripperies” in most things, however very efficient and good at his job. He was never expecting a commission.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths: Organization, hard work, self-discipline, very easy going and hard to anger. Working with horses and Aurochs makes one have to learn patience real fast.

Weaknesses: Not much formal education, his early education focusing on more practical issues, so he relies on his assistants to help with the formal language and is at a disadvantage in formal events, most commanding officers learned to let him skip the cocktail parties.

Personal History The colony of New Abilene has always been seen as a rough and tumble world, Growing up, he learned from an early age, in addition to the usual educational plans, he also learned how to ride, shoot and herd the colony’s famous longhorn cattle, which were actually aurochs, long-extinct on earth.

Also learning to run the family’s ranch, taught him the basics. During the Dominion conflict, he stepped up to run the ranch as his father and brother were off on search and rescue duty with the colonial militia. During the war, he had run the ranch with help from friends and family. One night a Federation vessel had been patrolling in the area before it was ambushed, one of the officers had gotten to the escape pods and landed on the colony.

The rescue, wasn’t too hard, patching up the man’s injuries was part of the basic first aid training, but until a rescue crew alive, he was put to work helping out where needed and suggested the young man consider Starfleet with his skills.

His first few years were learning his way, his small but growing family getting settled into life as a Starfleet family, moving from Starbase to Starbase in 2383, onboard the Brusilov, they were attacked by pirates, It took some quick thinking, innovative planning, and the use of an old revolver and lever-action rifle, he managed to rescue the captain, and their VIP guest, a Bolian diplomat. The result was a battlefield commission,

Learning how to be an officer has still been a work in progress, but he ran efficient departments. His family grew up with his oldest son moving back home to act as a circuit attorney and his other son, an officer in Starfleet.

The Solaria is his first department head position
