Personal History

Remy Courcel was born in Canada into a family that could trace its heritage back to France where, sometime in the late 18th century, their ancestors fled the poverty and violence of the French Revolution. Remy, like his brothers and sisters, was raised as French by their parents who retained the fierce patriotism that the Courcels had brought over from their native country.

Remy was a bright young child, who took on his father's love of art and painting and from an early age sought to emulate his father in one day becoming an artist. But his home life was less than ideal. His doting mother, a quiet botanist, was overshadowed by her drunk and often abusive husband. Remy, his siblings and his mother all grew up frightened of a man who would erratically drift between sorrow and despression and violent angry outbursts. Seeking to escape this torment his brother joined Starfleet when Remy was 14, prompting him to do the same aged 16, the youngest age permitted. He chose Medicine as his field of expertise as he felt that it was suited his quiet and well meaning personality. His sister was similarly inspired by her brother's actions, but instead of joining Starfleet remained on Earth to work for a charity that helped victims of domestic abuse.

Remy's father died of cirrhosis of the liver due to his alcoholism halfway through Remy's academy training. Upon her husband's death, Remy's mother made the decision to move back to France to continue her work as a botanist. Remy Courcel was posting from the academy as a midshipman to the USS Sheridan where he has remained ever since keeping his head down and making the rank of Lieutenant, Junior Grade and Assistant Chief Medical Officer.
