Personal History

Douglas Hauser was conceived between his El-Aurian mother, a refugee from some distant Borg-ruined planet rumored to be in the Delta Quadrant, and his workaholic Human father who had made a name for himself in the legal immigration profession. Their union was incredibly rare for a number of reasons, least of which seemed to be a hesitance for Kaylara's people to take the final step in integration with this part of the galaxy by taking alien betrothed, and medical science found itself learning and adapting along with the couple. Physiological similarities allowed the first two trimesters of the pregnancy to pass with relative ease. By the third, however, unexpected complications arose that confined the mother to strict bed rest.

During the thirty-sixth week, Kaylara contracted a respiratory infection at home that was left undetected until it developed into pneumonia, starting a domino effect that led to premature labor. For almost two days doctors fought to keep both mother and child alive, but in the end the pneumonia combined with the stress of labor induced a serious stroke from lack of oxygen to the brain, killing the El-Aurian before her baby had even left the womb. Douglas was born seven minutes after his mother had passed away.

David Hauser took to raising his son fairly well, becoming determined in showing the boy enough love to make up for the lack of maternal support. This did not mean anything was hidden from Douglas, who knew from a relatively young age how his mother had fallen ill and passed away. He also grew up while hearing stories about his Hauser ancestors and their accomplishments, going all the way back to the late twentieth century and a great grandfather who had been a very successful medical doctor from a young age. These tales fascinated the child and began his own early push and interest in the medical field.

Already Douglas was showing signs of inheriting some of these remarkable genes. Doctors tested and compared the young Hauser against other Human children his age and rated him with an above average intelligence. Douglas was also discovered to possess an eidetic memory, both of these traits being contributed to his El-Aurian half.

Practically being a genius meant that schoolwork was all but simple for Hauser. It was his social development that began to fall behind compared to the rest of his peers. Hardly any children his age could relate to Douglas, who found himself shunned and turning inward lest he be hurt by playground insults.

As the years passed and puberty approached, the observant Douglas watched in something akin to awe at the ease and grace his lawyer father entered social situations and argued cases in front of imposing judges. It became a talent Douglas was determined to master, parroting David's mannerisms and slick attitude until it sunk in. He even went as far as to begin wearing formal suits regularly and flirting with women at least twice his age at fifteen. It was a mask for the socially awkward teen to slip on when he felt it was needed, a way of self preservation and acceptance, but it was far from perfect. It wasn't as easy to let the guard down as it was to erect. True friends who saw the other sides of Hauser were scarce...

It was also around this time where his grades began to slip from their perfect performance he had enjoyed since preschool, but the adolescent found it a fair trade for the new social interactions he was discovering. This new life of companionship was supplemented with more creative endeavors, including guitar practice, school theater and choir classes, and even a few magic lessons just for amusement.

Hauser made it through his formal education with high enough marks and fewer honors than his teachers thought he was capable of. It was around this time of newly obtained adulthood Douglas was reminded of a childhood fascination of being a doctor when he offered assistance to emergency medical personnel after a ground car accident outside a favorite hangout. Finding his lost purpose in life, Hauser enrolled into college with the goal of earning that doctorate in medicine. Eight years later, Douglas Patrick Hauser had lived up to his father's family's legacy and graduated summa cum laude from Harvard Medical.

Too soon after settling into a hospital not far from his hometown, news of the Borg War hit the Federation public. This was personally troubling for Douglas,who knew of the vague accounts her mother's people reveled about their own struggles with the mechanical abominations and eventual but necessary abandonment of their home. Suddenly the degree that hung on his office wall was no longer satisfying enough. He wanted to do more, he had to do more, against this threat, help to silence the Borg in this part of the galaxy once and for all. The answer seemed obvious; enlist in Star Fleet. By the time Hauser neared another graduation the Borg had been pushed back once again by the Federation and their allies, and yet he remained enrolled in the Academy. A fascinating discovery had been made through the combat training and military courses in xenobiology; here in the service Douglas had found more excitement and purpose than working in an ordinary hospital, and that was something his learned social skills had come to crave.

Even so, Hauser's assignments remained close to the Sol system after earning his commission and served as resident physician on starbases and smaller service vessels, interacting with every common species in the Federation he could, until superiors determined his skill set would be better served in deep space missions.

Personality Profile

Academy Major(s): Comparative Xenobiology
Academy Minor(s): Xenoculture, Humanoid Anatomy
Hobbies and Pastimes: Sharing a drink with buddies, reading medical journals, holodeck adventures, suit shopping, magic
Short-Term Goals: Find a new wing man, adjust to life on a starship
Long-Term Goals: Win a game of golf against his Dad
Personality: There are two sides to Hauser; the face he shows in public is one of brash confidence and sharp wit. He can also seem like a total womanizer and first class flirt at times, but truthfully he rarely goes any further than sharing a drink and dishing out compliments. The other part of Douglas is deeper beneath the surface; when pressed the smooth facade adopted from his father dissolves. He can be awkward and unsure socially but also rather brilliant when his mind is free of the constant need to act 'normal.'
Sense of Humor: Sharp, at times acerbic, and mostly sarcastic. He enjoys creating a situation then stepping back to watch from the sidelines as mayhem ensures (with any luck)
Phobias: Severe arachnophobia
Likes: Scotch, women, frozen yogurt, B science fiction/horror holonovels, musical theater
Dislikes: Pears, keeping confined to one place for extended periods
Pet Peeves or Gripes: Being called “Doogie,” a childhood nickname he has come to loathe, or any shortened version of his first name
Achievements: Earning his Ph. D and graduating from Star Fleet Academy within the same decade
Disappointments: Never getting to know his mother, the great and wonderful woman behind his very favorite childhood bedtime stories
Illnesses: Suffers mild to severe headaches as a side effect of any telepathic contact depending on the length of the connection
Strengths: Intelligence, a real feeling of purpose in his profession
Weaknesses: Feelings of inadequacy at times
Fears: Commitment
Prejudices: None
Off Duty Clothing Tastes: Even in casual situations, Douglas prefers to keep up a sharp appearance by wearing a three piece suit and tie. He has a fairly large collection of them, all considered expensive and tasteful. When his hand is forced, however (laundry day), he will relent and drag out a simple tee and pair of denim jeans.
Distinguishing Features: Eyes small enough to almost be considered beady, but this is softened by the light color of his irises; usually sporting a lopsided smirk when in a good mood.
Pets: None
Friends: College roommate Theodore Mosbie has been long considered Hauser's number one best friend, despite the differences in their respective majors, Mosbie studying to become an architect. They would often spend free time and even some class periods bar hopping and swapping places as wing men for the night when one or the other pined for female company. They fell out of regular touch after Douglas moved on to medical school (and after a small “incident” between Douglas and Ted's younger sister) but still keep in contact one with another, usually around birthdays and holidays. No one has yet to take Mosbie's place as best friend.

Personal Paradigm Shifts

Most Painful Experience: On the first day of fifth grade Douglas received a bloody nose and split lip from a group of boys just because he had been caught by them behind a dumpster reading a college lever biology textbook. It was then he truly realized how different he was from everyone else.
Best Time: Hauser's best time and greatest personal honor was when his best college friend gave an open ended offer for Douglas to be his best man at any future wedding of his.
Most Crucial Experience: When the first news reports rolled in about a new Borg threat, Hauser found the need to take a more proactive stand than possibly only patching up survivors behind the scenes. He had to get out there and make a true difference. Though the conflict was over before he graduated, it was a crucial point in his life when he joined Star Fleet.
Role Model: His father was a role model for Hauser's learned social interactions and how he learned to successfully interact with others.
