Personal History

As a child, Alejandro demonstrated a passion for strategy games and loved to play war games with his friends. He was a bit rowdy, but generally sweet and loved by his family. Growing up as part of a royal family in the modern day was rough on him, though, and he didn’t fit in with his peers of “high society”.

While his parents tried to give him the best education by sending him to a prestigious boarding school, he learned more from reading journals, history books and articles following the various tactical conflicts the Federation was involved in. He did not get along with anyone at school, and he resented his parents for sending him away.

He soon became interested in pursuing local interests in the city of Madrid, living a carefree existence jumping from place to place, getting into trouble here and there. He derived immense pleasure from living off his parents’ reputation and resources without minding their pleas to return home, a lifestyle that soon became unsustainable. After getting in trouble with the local authorities a third time when he was 19, his parents refused to bail him out. His father, being a very respected lawyer, was able to work out an agreement so that Alejandro would put in 2 years of service in Starfleet (after graduating from the Academy) instead of 8 months in jail. Nothing he had done would prevent him from being accepted to the Academy, so the judge ordered him to report at Starfleet Academy.

While at the Academy, Alejandro got himself into a little bit of trouble, but he mostly got along with his fellow cadets. He enjoyed pursuing his passion for combat tactics, in both ground combat and starship combat situations. He found his first role models in his professors, and he started to look forward to working on a starship. Halfway through his studies, he had a minor incident involving tampering with a holodeck simulation to play a prank on a friend. Luckily he got away with only a warning– but Alejandro was left with a harsh reminder of the discipline he was going to have to live with for the next 4 years. He continued to earn commendations in Starship Defensive Tactics and Advanced Deflector Systems, but his zeal was contained by the strain on his personal and family life.

Personality Profile

Academy Major(s): Starship Defensive Tactics, Starship Combat Operations
Academy Minor(s): Advanced Deflector Systems, Shuttle Combat and Flight Systems
Hobbies and Pastimes: He loves to read and play chess, although when he can use the holodeck to go on a historical adventure or recreate a combat scenario and play in it, he will.
Short-Term Goals: Make a good first impression on his crewmates and try not to be disrespectful or insubordinate on the first day aboard his assigned ship. He also wants to be able to stay in touch with the few friends he made at the Academy.
Long-Term Goals: Serve his 2 years in Starfleet to please his parents, then see where he is able to go (he may just find that he actually likes life on a starship!). On a related note, he wants to be able to find friends in the crew he is assigned to that like to be adventurous. Eventually he would like to reconnect with his sister Rosario.
Personality: Unintentionally aloof at times, but fiercely loyal. He likes to be around people, but only when he has something to do or say. In difficult situations he is dependable and well-mannered, but in informal situations he can come across as insensitive.
Sense of Humor: He likes to joke around and even offends people sometimes, but he is usually not too serious about insulting people.
Phobias: He is a little bit claustrophobic and afraid of social isolation.
Likes: Strategy games, exotic foods, adrenaline of fighting (either hand-to-hand or in space)
Dislikes: Arrogance (despite his own), know-it-alls, abuse of authority
Pet Peeves or Gripes: Lectures, Intolerance
Achievements: He received great marks in school while he was there. Otherwise, at the Academy he excelled in Combat Tactical Analysis and was awarded several commendations in both theory and simulations of tactical scenarios.
Disappointments: He is disappointed that his family has sent him away so much, and he internalizes it to the point where he has convinced himself he does not belong in Starfleet in the long run, even though that is where his passion lies.
Illnesses: Nothing major
Strengths: He is very clever and creative when it comes to problem-solving. He has a strong literary background and is very resilient.
Weaknesses: He sometimes misjudges people and often struggles with self-esteem when it comes to making a place for himself.
Fears: His family will never speak to him again.
Prejudices: He is biased against the wealthy or reputed, and he dislikes authority figures in general because he thinks they will abuse their power. However, he has loyalty to those authority figures who he has learned to trust.
Off Duty Clothing Tastes: Plain athletic shirt, loose pants
Distinguishing Features: Very chiseled jaw, otherwise gentle features. He has a broad and muscular frame, although he only seems intimidating when he is trying to be.
Pets: None
Friends: Archibaldo Mendez, a friend and fellow troublemaker he lived with in Madrid for a couple years.

Personal Paradigm Shifts

Most Painful Experience: Being imprisoned after breaking and entering and stealing from a local café, then sent away to Starfleet Academy by his parents, and not hearing from them ever again.
Best Time: Living in Madrid with his friends and having a carefree attitude.
Most Crucial Experience: His years at the Academy have changed him and he is just not starting to come into his passion for protecting and helping people. Starfleet actually may have given him the discipline he needed to focus and become a productive member of society!
Role Model: Professor Kennedy, his mentor and teacher at the Academy. Kennedy served aboard 7 different ships of varying tactical capacities and he would sit and tell stories about combat scenarios for hours with Alejandro.
