Personality & Traits
An orphan, Mykel as always looked to prove himself, yet so stubbornly independent. He he slow to trust anyone, and even slower to let them into his life, in a way other than professional. First a grunt in the Marines, then a Ace pilot for starfleet, he has almost always worked alone, and is uncomfortable in large groups.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Very competent with his hands, Mykel never doubts his actions, while working. He almost moves without thought, his instincts taking action. But he is very socialably akward. He spent most of his time in the orphanages and foster homes alone, off in his own little worlds. The frineds in his mind, so much more fun, than the real people around him. As he now tries to encounter others on a regular basis, he sometimes misses the quiet.
Mykel wanted to be in space from the time he realized it was possible. Mainly to leave the world that never really wanted him. The stars have always had a draw to him.
Hobbies & Interests
Loves reading, and studying history. Sports he has always loved, even if he has only ever played them alone on the holodeck.
Federation Basic, Klingon
An Orphan on earth, Mykel ran the streets, getting himself in and out of trouble with ease. He ran away from the orphanage, hundreds of times, during his 17 years there. He knew they would always eventually catch him, but the couple days he would disappear are his fondest memories, of his childhood. Twice he managed to make it all the way to Yosemite National Park. He has always been drawn there, though he has never really understood why. He got into trouble many times for fights, though what most of the records dont show, is 90% of the time, the other child he was attacking, had been bullying the younger kids. Mykel rarely interacts with others, but bullies have always lit a fire in him. As a child, he spent most of his time alone. Once he started school, he he became a whole new person, wanting to learn everything he possibly could, because it was somthing that could never be taken away from him. He joined the Marines at 17, to get into space as quickly as possible. After some time as a grunt, he was "Persuaded" to enroll at the Starfleet Academy Flight school, by his Platoon leader. After witnessing Mykel piloting a airspeeder away from a bar, and ditching the police, he gave Mykel the choice of Flight School, or the Brig. Mykel is quite happy with his choice now.
Mykel joined the marines at 17, and had completed training by 17 and a half. He spent a little over a year as a Private in the Marines, stationed on the outskirts of Federation space. During his time at Starfleet Academy, he maintained perfect attendance. He played on the Schools baseball team, all four years he attended. Majoring in Flight Ops, and a Minor in Tactial. Mykel graduated top of his class at the Academy. Mykel is always looking to learn from, then surpass every pilot on board every ship he has been on. His first posting was the USS Athena. A Defiant, and the first time he was put on the bridge. While he was not thrilled at first, he realized it was a whole new world of flying.
