Personal History

Christian was born and raised on the USS Sheffield along with his sister Amy. They were both liked by the crew and the Captain, as there were not that many children on the Sheffield. While Amy preferred to spend time with their mother learning how to fly, Christian spent all his time with their father, either tinkering with the old motorcycle engines, or in later years, in the engine room. The time with his father left him with a life-long fascination with machinery, and he would often take things apart just to put them back together. It was also during this time he developed his dislike for the Ferengi, as several deals with them for parts turned out to be far too expensive.

On his 14th birthday, Christian was working alongside a Junior Engineer on a shuttle when there was a plasma rupture, and the engineer pushed Grix clear, and sealed the bay behind him. Christian never really recovered from this, and his greatest fear stems from this moment. His father was reluctant to let him work in the engine room again, but at the boy's insistence, that he was allowed back and worked along side him and many engineers as they worked on the ship's systems.

The years passed quickly, and when the 17-year-old Christian visited Betazed, he met and fell in love with Zaira Morgan, the half-Betazoid daughter of the Earth Ambassador, they got on really well. They had a very passionate affair, until the day she told him that her mother had promised her to one of the rulers of the 7 House's sons. In an instant, Christian had lost the woman he had thought he would spend his life with. He had fallen for her as they had spent time together originally just as friends, but then as they got closer, a kiss and more until they both realised they were in love. To be told it was over because of the arrangement didn't help, and Christian was devastated, being told she still loved him didn't help, and he left not only as soon as he could, but after telling her he hoped she was happy but he never wanted to see her again. He left with the girl in tears and made his way to the tree and the bench they used to sit and talk on.

The 18 year old Chris then took a string of jobs on freighters. as he tried to cure his broken heart with whiskey and other women in an effort to forget her. Finally at the age of 22, he was accepted to Starfleet Academy, and enrolled as an Engineering Cadet.

Grix had just started his first posting following graduation as a midshipman, when he was assigned to a mission that would force him to break the date he had that night with a young Security Officer and to make things worse he could not tell anyone.

The mission was going to plan, until the shuttle was hit by a blast to the port nacelle. It took all of Grix's ability as a pilot to bring the shuttle down, although not in one piece as the shuttle broke up on impact 2 members of the crew were killed immediately, while Grix and the passenger were badly injured but survived. He suffered multiple broken bones and a head injury that caused him to lose his memory.

The next two years saw him in Starfleet medical, firstly in an induced coma, and then learning to walk again along with many, many hours recovering his memory. He now had recovered most of his memories of everything before the crash, but still cannot remember what happened following the crash, until he woke up in a ship sickbay 48 hours later. He knew it was a ship even though at the time he could not remember his name or how he had got there.

After his initial recovery, Grix has spent time working on freighters and transports re-honing his skills before returning to Star Fleet. This time was a rollercoaster of emotions for Christian. At first struggling to remember simple engineering tasks and the slow return of his skills building to when he first realised he was doing his job without having to think what he needed to do. Then came the frustration of the repetitive nature of civilian shipping and it not being why he wanted to be on ships, he needed to get out exploring again. Although he had to admit he would miss the off duty life he lived on Transport ships.

The time on these ships had done what he needed and at this point he applied to be allowed to return to service and was informed he would need to graduate the academy once more to confirm he could still be a Starfleet Engineer.

Now feeling better after returning to the academy to make sure he was still able to be an engineer after he was cleared by medical, he was looking forward to getting back out into space.
