Physical Characteristics

Height: 5'11
Weight: 145 lbs

Build and Skin Color: Aidan is a tall, slender man; looking more emaciated than he really is. Wiry muscles give him look with rolling shoulders and good leverage.

Facial Features and Eye Color: Quick, bright green eyes either bounce from item to item or gaze patiently across a room.

Hair Color and Style: Aidan's face is typically poorly shaven (when off duty); matched with a short, easy maintenance hair cut. Aidan's hair draws undue attention due to it's naturally white color.

Distinguishing Features: Physically, Aidan is unmarred, and other than his white hair, easy to overlook.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Aidan's introverted nature makes him a difficult person to gauge. Level headed and reasonable by nature, Aidan often comes off as cold or calculating to those who take only a cursory glance. To his friends, Aidan is talkative, loyal and helpful, and sometimes condescending. All in all, Aidan acts as he believes, “Nothing is perfect in the world; everything can be improved”.

Likes: Learning, thinking critically, and debate
Dislikes: Being bored, the Mishhuvurthyar
Goals: Aidan doesn't know what his long-term goals are. After spending most of his life following the goals of other people, Aidan isn't sure what he wants.

Pre-RP

Aidan won't talk about his history much. Aidan owns up to being the oldest of 7 siblings, leaving to work with his Uncle on shipping runs at 14 to help support his family. His file does say that his home world was part of the Bard sector, and that he lost family during the SMX invasion.

What he doesn’t say is that he worked as his Uncle’s ship-board engineer during his days as a Privateer after the invasion by the SMX to the bard sector. Most of Aidan’s siblings were killed in the ensuing destruction. Many of Aidan’s resources go toward the foundation of a new “Homestead”. His father and brother are currently exploring and working towards that goal.

Aidan is a young, promising (hopefully) soon to be intelligence specialist. Among the top 0.25% of Geshrin or Yamataian entry scores for the intelligence program, Aidan was immediately asked to “upgrade”to a Yamataian body. His record says, “Coercion required”.

Skills

Communication

Aidan is a naturally gifted linguist as well as a practiced writer, although, most can't tell through his introverted demeanor. He is also proficient in standard personal and ship bound communications equipment, and, as a citizen of the Yamataian Empire, fluent in Nepleslian and Yamataian.

Engineering

Necessity is the mother of invention, and Aidan knows this truth harder than most. Spending life growing up with less than perfect resources have forced Aidan to learn to use whatever is at hand to the best of its ability. Construction of more complex items is, however, beyond the scope of Aidan's learning.

Humanities

Debate, psychology, and empathy come naturally to Aidan as much as anything does, and he puts that to good use on the battlefield as well as in his every day life. Little slips past his understanding, and what does, Aidan anguishes over, and tortures himself for.

Knowledge

Hei Buchanan is one of the brightest minds of his generation. His comprehension and retainment rate is exceptional and he effortlessly recalls even the most obscure pieces of data (much to the chagrin of many).

Mathematics

Math has always been one of the hallmarks of a sharp mind, and Aidan is no exception. Despite the occasional misstep in “simple math”, Aidan excels in quickly solving complicated problems requiring wide knowledge bases and inventive solutions.

Military Tactics

Aidan's talents lend him to Mechanics or Inventing, but his personal passion lays outside of his greatest talents and in tactics and leadership. Aidan is a student of history and philosophy, but his skills and talents are to be sorely tested.

Technical Operation

Computers, Nodes, and other technical skills are things Aidan just picked up on the side, and don't really represent a deliberate intent to learn, but rather a peripheral necissity from other more important pursuits.

Fighting

Aidan never liked the idea of fighting, and while he does know which way to point a firearm, the poor sap is a sitting duck in combat without a plan.
