Physical Description

Dexter Bylon is a young Nepleslian that stands at an even height of 6“ and sports a light athletic frame that rests somewhat strangely between “medium” and “large”. His face is sharply angled and clean shaven, with two light purple eyes contrasting his lightly tanned skin. His nose is sharp, and he prefers to keep his eyebrows cut neatly square. His hair is black with an almost purple sheen in light, and is most often seen put up in a loose greaser fashion. Dexter actually has light vision issues, and either wears contacts or wireframe glasses to correct it.

Dexter is most often seen wearing either the Type 35 Duty Uniform, or the Type 31 Working Uniform when aboard starships. When on leave, he prefers to wear a black nylon jacket, with a large collar. Dexter takes self-pride in making sure his uniforms and clothes are presentable, even if some of them fit a little awkwardly.

Personality

Young and spry, Dexter can be considered a bit of an oddity. Born in Yamatai and moved back and forth across the system, Dexter is interested in the culture of both Nepleslia and Yamatai.

Dexter can come across as a bit of a typical “fly-boy” to those he meets, and can be almost self-centered at times. Despite this at times blunt mentality weighing him down, Dexter is highly intelligent and outgoing. Dexter tries to strike friendships with those around him, and can be a chilled person when calmed. Dexter knows his way around a starship from years of experience, and specialized in starship repair. While he's working on it, his personality has made it difficult to advance in the ranks due to occasions of him loosing his cool.

Likes: People, himself (in moderation), glam aethersperm, racing.

Dislikes: Cold weather, Elysians and their wine, chocolate.

History

Pre-RP

Dexter was born in the middle of YE 15, as the first child of a small family. Dexter was not actually born in Nepleslia, as his parents both worked in the Uesureyan Fields. During the several years living in the residential area of the starport, Dexter picked up the first taste of mechanic life and found interest in the field as a whole. His younger sister, Ashley, was born when his was only four.

During Dexter's teenage years, the Bylon family moved away from the Uesureyan Fields to Planet Nepleslia due to employment cuts. Dexter was required to finish his education in Nepleslia, which led to many struggles that almost cultivated to him failing. After a few close scrapes with poor life decisions, Dexter decided to pull his life together and eventually made it through a trade school. Upon coming of adult age, Dexter decided to move out on his own and head back to his homeland. He still keeps in contact with his family to this day. Now living in Yamatai proper, Dexter was a bit of an oddball, someone with a love of Yamatai but with the personality and tastes of a Nepleslian immigrant.

Several years of living in Yamatai later, Dexter enlisted in the Star Army of Yamatai to become a technician in early-YE 39. After training and extra academy time, Dexter was assigned to spend time in Fort Minori, to help tone his temperament. Right as YE 40 came around, Dexter was assigned to the YSS Kaiyō II after one of their last starship technicians were discharged.
