Personality & Traits

General Overview Merlin is a good officer. He takes his job seriously, but as he has bounced around the fleet quite a number of times he does not have the innate sense some servicemen do of their vessels. His service record has also kept him from establishing himself as a great officer, partly because he has so far been a generalist. If it flies, he has probably worked on it but he does not consider himself to be the next chief or anything beyond hoping to make his next job permanent.

Friendly, amiable he has learned the hard way that on the fleet life can be rough, and when you run the risk of transfers it is better to keep any attachments light and easily packed. As such there is a bit of an undercurrent of him among the female officers and staffers as a playboy, although not as bad as those flashy flyboys.
Strengths & Weaknesses Merlin is smart, keen and has a good eye for detail. He works hard and is diligent in his duties.
Merlin is steady, calm and cool under pressure.
Although he enjoys his job, he is a firm believer in work hard play hard, and that has sometimes led to embarrasing shore leave reports.

He is a good pilot, having scored well in his Academy classes, even if his skills are a little rusty
Ambitions He wants to serve a Captain and chief he respects, then hopefully establish himself as more than he currently is.
Hobbies & Interests Holodecks, Exercise and various forms of sports. Gambling and music when the opportunity presents itself.

Personal History Merlin Foxwell was born on Earth. His father worked for Starfleet at the Fleet headquarters as a Science officer and his Mother ran a family business that helped cater to the travellers constantly streaming through the city.

Once he turned of Age, he joined the Academy where his keen eye and reflexes quickly earmarked him for Security or Flight. Having decent scores in his classes, it was his Father who helped him decide on Security. Hearing the stories of the Dominion Wars, and the various attacks Starfleet had been forced to weather over the years convinced Merlin that he needed to offer his own skills.

There were many pilots who were more proficient than he was, and he knew that a starship required far more Security personnel than pilots. And so he made the decision to pursue Security where he did well.

Since graduating he has worked on everything from stations to cargoships to the smaller patrol class vessels of Starfleet. Over that time he has worked hard, annoyed some Chief of Security and gotten along with others. But when the call came for bodies to fill holes he was usually chosen, as others had established themselves as less replaceable or had been there longer. Over the years this became almost a self fufilling cycle as Merlin grew hardened to interweaving himself in a crew.
