Personal History

Ted was born in San Francisco, and was always fairly big. He was also a bit of a bully to the other kids, and as he made his way through school he spent more time trying to make other kids’ lives miserable/steal their lunch money than he did on his class work.

He was never marked out as a ‘great achiever’, as he often struggled to grasp basic concepts in class, but when it came to sports he excelled. Because this allowed him to get scholarships into better schools, this has lead to him feeling a little smug over those that have to work hard to prove themselves smart enough to get into such schools.

What noone, even he, had realised was that he really was very intelligent, but because he could get into the better schools on sports scholarships he focussed on that instead. As he worked his way through school though, he found that scholarships weren't everything. After failing most of his exams, he realised that he had to work hard to achieve, so he repeated a year. He spent the year working hard, and did excellently on his exams. This amazed everyone, especially him.

All of his life, he had loved Star Fleet, and had wanted to join. As most Christmas/birthday presents, he would get Star Fleet memorabilia and a few construction sets of the Enterprise and such like. He also loved the idea of space travel, and wanted to be a pilot on a shuttle.

As he grew older, his parents expected him to ‘grow out of it’, but he only part-way did. He still wanted to be in Star Fleet, but after conducting a little research he found that piloting wasn't as much fun as he had thought, and working with Security looked a lot more interesting.

As soon as he was old enough he applied. After his sudden increase in academic grades, his parents didn't know what to expect, and as they thought he didn't manage it on the first try. But he was persistent, and worked harder than ever now that he had an aim. After many attempts, he was finally accepted. He was ecstatic, and soon was packed and leaving for the Academy.

Personality Profile

Hobbies and Pastimes: He enjoys all sorts of sports, especially if they are contact ones. He especially likes doing martial arts and Judo. In Judo he is a black belt and he does well in most of the others
Short-Term Goals: He wants to prove his worth in actual combat, possibly during a boarding action, or even if it’s just a little crowd-controlling of some drunken officers
Long-Term Goals: He wants to become chief security officer on whatever starship he is assigned to
Personality: Can often become hostile towards people if he doesn’t like them, and has been known to get into a few fights, especially if drink is involved. Since joining the academy, he has worked to control his anger, but sometimes it can slip a little loose of its shackles
Sense of Humor: He likes simple jokes, and often doesn’t get more complicated ones. Dirty jokes will confuse him more than anything; quite often, his childish sense of humour can make him appear immature
Likes: Sports and exercising, in fact almost anything physical will do
Dislikes: He doesn’t like having to think too hard, so he doesn’t enjoy things like reading or puzzles
Distinguishing Features: He's huge!
Pets: None
