Physical Description

He is 5'8“, with a lean runner's build. He has dark brown eyes and straight brown hair cut somewhat short, within regulation. His skin is fair, with no tan to speak of. His left arm from the shoulder is an obvious cybernetic prosthetic, and his right eye is likewise cybernetic but appears biological without close inspection. He has normal human ears. Otherwise, he looks very plain, his only distinguishing facial feature being a fairly prominent nose. His right shoulder is tattooed in black with a stylized bird. His voice is usually soft and pleasant, but can take on a commanding tone when called for.

Personality

Jesse is noticeably quiet and cautious, though friendly. He is more outspoken when under pressure, or when faced with a topic he is passionate about. These include the concepts of egalitarianism, transhumanism, and anything he views as an injustice. He is very proud of his capabilities and always thinks himself the smartest person in any given room, though he'd never admit that to himself or anyone. As such, he can be overly defensive if he feels threatened from an intellectual standpoint. Even so, he is a very amicable and empathetic person, though it may take some effort for others to see it. When on duty, he is as diligent as any soldier is expected to be, but in his free time he has trouble making himself do much of anything that requires effort. He has a special interest in cultures and languages, and in fact speaks Yamataigo unusually well for a Nepleslian, and is fluent to a lesser degree in Abwheren as well.

While not an incredibly social person, Jesse does feel strongly loyal to the close friends he manages to make. This doesn't seem to extend to his family, as he has fallen out of contact with his father, who he was never very close to, and one brother, who fell into a life of crime. He only occasionally speaks with his youngest brother and mother, though he is quite close to them. In general, he will get along with anyone who is tolerant of others and isn't prone to start conflict. He is especially fond of knowledgeable people he can discuss interesting topics with and learn from.

History

Jesse was born in Haven van Inktvss on Nepleslia in 14 YE. He grew up with few real luxuries in life, but his father, a computer tech at the Biological Processing Center, never skimped on the boy's education, which Jesse eagerly took to from a young age. He focused on his studies throughout his early life until finally saving up to attend Nepleslia State University at the age of 20, majoring in History.

While there, he took an interest in the ROTC program and decided to become an officer in the Navy. By his reasoning, there wasn't much he could do with a degree in History besides teach. Military life would be more of an adventure, and there was so much more to learn and see in the greater galaxy. Upon graduation from NSU and the ROTC program, he entered SMDIoN as an Ensign.

At first, he was assigned to a patrol cruiser to learn from the officers there in a relatively safe environment. During this tour, what was usually a quiet patrol route stumbled upon a pirate vessel and engaged in combat, where Ensign Biesecker performed in the role of Ops watchstander with admirable efficiency for a junior officer.

When a position opened in Yamatai's Task Force Inquisition for a military exchange, Jesse requested it with the hopes of experiencing firsthand a culture he had only ever read and been lectured about before.

Skills Learned

Communications: Having been trained both as a military officer and a historian, Jesse is well-acquainted with reading, writing, and languages. He is versed in all the usual military methods of radio operations, hand signals, and light codes, as well as being fluent in Yamataigo and Abwheren, with a smattering of familiarity with Freefolk and Seraphim.

Fighting: Jesse underwent the mandatory basic training all Nepleslian soldiers and sailors do, and is thus more than capable of defending himself, armed or otherwise. In his free time, he enjoys keeping his aim sharp at the gun range.

Humanities: Jesse has an undying love for cultures and the individuals in them. A large part of his secondary studies included sociology, psychology, and philosophy, and he continues to pursue these subjects into his military career.

Knowledge: Biesecker is very well-educated in a broad variety of topics and has a very good memory for them. What he doesn't know offhand, he can research using the skills earned throughout his life as a scholar. His specialty is History, especially of the military variety, but he has a good handle of most subjects besides.

Technology Operation: Even before attending NSU, Jesse learned about computers from his father. Though not nearly as passionate about programming as he is in history and the humanities, Biesecker is nonetheless proficient with multiple programming languages and operating systems, including the Kessaku OS of Yamatai.

Starship Operations: As a Naval officer, Jesse has committed himself fully to learning all there is to know about operating a starship, whether a capital ship or a fighter. He has logged weeks worth of hours in simulators, and has practical experience as well, though little combat experience as yet.

Survival: Though not a marine, even Navy men and women are expected to know the basic principles of wilderness survival. Jesse is no natural outdoorsman, but he does know how to hunt, forage, set up a camp, and camouflage himself at a decent level of proficiency.
