Dominic Slade is a dedicated yet egotistical lietenant aboard the NSS Kestrel plotship. Dominic's character is played by Moonman.

Physical Characteristics

  • Height: 6'2” (187.95 cm)
  • Weight: 160 lb (72.5 kg)
  • Build and Skin color: Tall, slim muscular build, tanned flesh colored skin
  • Facial Features and Eye color: A thin face with sharp features (especially the nose), with slanted, ‘squinty’ light blue eyes.
  • Hair color and Style: Medium length black hair, bangs combed over to the sides to not obscure his face.
  • Distinguishing Features: Dominic has a somewhat lanky frame, and his posture is often very rigid save for his neck; it curves forward a bit, giving him the slight look of a looming vulture. This is only complimented with his sharp nose (it almost gives the appearance of a hawks beak) and ‘scary’ face, as a few people eloquently put it. He also prefers to be referred to as “Slade.”

Family

  • Antoine Slade (Father, Alive)
  • Ross Slade (Brother, Alive)

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Dominic’s appearance would often suggest that he was a cold, analytical person, and that isn’t far from the truth. While working, Dominic is a very imposing figure, constantly keeping watch diligently over his allotted job. He is bitterly sarcastic, self-absorbed in his own authority, and only accepts nonsense and tom-foolery when he himself is the one giving it. On the other hand, his conviction and dedication to his country, his career and his subordinates has earned him a lot of respect amongst his peers. In short, he’s on a permanent ego-trip.

When not on the clock, Slade is still a very high-strung individual. He has a hard time adjusting to new things, and often degrades to the point of confusion and slight phobia when a particular problem presents itself. When in these circumstances, Dominic gets very flustered and somewhat defensive. It is worth mentioning that women are a complete and utter mystery to Dominic, thus, he avoids them when at all possible.

  • Likes: Order, success, asserting his position and authority, people who are like him, form-fitting clothing, cool colors, bitter food
  • Dislikes: Failure, negligence, new things (especially foods), ‘loud’ colors, sweets of ANY kind
  • Goals: To serve his government and people to the best of his abilities, to take part in the growth of Nepleslia, to be remembered in history as someone who accomplished something

History

Pre-History

Cloned and raised in the upper echelons of Nepleslian society, Dominic knew from the start that he wanted to do great things with his life. He excelled though his childhood, graduating top in his class on many occasions, eventually adopting his sarcastic, holier-than-thou attitude as he began to realize the differences between himself and those below him.

His father, Antoine, originally cloned his son Dominic in order to be his successor of the small shipping firm he owned. However, as Dominic grew further into his years, he realized that running the firm was not what he wanted in life, as he himself felt that he was fated to do better, more important things with his life; things that would get his name recorded into history. Dominic’s father was an understanding man, and simply created another clone of himself, Ross Slade, and pushed the family business harder this time around. This left Dominic with the freedom he sought to seek out a more glorious profession.

Given the Nepleslian fascination with military, it did not take long for Dominic to enroll in the nearest military academy. Over the years he has become somewhat known for his dedication to the Nepleslian cause and is currently training in hopes of one day captaining his own ship, and eventually, commanding his own fleet. At the moment, his military superiors have ordered him to survey the capabilities of the newest stealth gunship from NAM, in order to assess its use before a major purchase.

Skills

Technology Operations: Through his years of experience with several different types of technologies commonly associated with Star Army personnel, Dominic is well versed in the use of many technologies. He is very familiar with common starship systems, able to extract the necessary information from a ship computer.

Starship Operations: Although he has not been in command of his own vessel as of yet, Dominic is certain that it is only a matter of time until he is promoted to full captainship. Because of this, he has taken to studying and researching all things he will need to know about leading his own ship. As of now, Dominic is well informed to what he might expect captaining a starship will be like…however, all this knowledge is merely literature-learned, with no actual experience.

Fighting (Small Arms, Military Equipment): Although not typically a physical person, Dominic is proficient in the many forms of combat associated with the Star Army of Nepleslia. However, after the initial training and drills, he has not pursued to further his knowledge of combat measures, simply because his status on most ships does not involve combat roles. Never the less, Dominic is able to defend himself quite well in many different circumstances, and is surprisingly strong and agile for his odd physique.

Communications: Dominic, through training, is able to send and receive messages using standard Star Army communications technology. He prefers, however, to talk to people in person in order to fully exploit his commanding authority on his subordinates.

Leadership: Dominic, despite his cold personality, has come to be respected for his endeavors and dedication to the Nepleslian cause. This has allowed him to reach out to his subordinates on a level of respect, as well as his own personal flavor of motivational speaking. Dominic prefers to lead this way, believing that leadership through willingness to follow is the most effective method, while remaining the most professional.

Physical (Running): Dominic has seen and learned a great deal of things through his years of serving Nepleslia, ranging from proper command of star ships to the many different personalities that tend to repeat themselves in his subordinates. He takes great pride in the fact that he has lived through the years of conflict, and addresses his exploits often, especially when attempting to prove his superiority.

Knowledge (History, Military): Dominic has seen and learned a great deal of things through his years of serving Nepleslia, ranging from proper command of star ships to the many different personalities that tend to repeat themselves in his subordinates.
