Name:Lieutenant Matthews
Name: Lieutenant Warren Matthews
Original Character - Star Trek fandom
Gender: Male
Age: 23
Species: Human
Appearance: At about 5'11" and 180 pounds, Matthews isn't the most physically intimidating officer. His hair is a deep auburn, his Scottish heritage only present if he grows out his facial hair, which is a ruddy red. His eyes are green, and his skin surprisingly clean of freckles or sunspots. Modern medicinal technology ensures that he has few, if any scars, in spite of having lived through and participated in the Dominion War. His hair can be hard to tame except when cut short.

History: Basic timeline pending detailed backstory:
2349 - Warren Matthews is born on Earth in Northern Scotland.
2359 - Matthews' family moves to what was once the state of Washington in North America.
2363 - 5 April - 300th anniversary of First Contact.
2366 - Cadet Matthews is accepted into Starfleet Academy.
2367 - Battle of Wolf 359. Captain George Matthews (his grandfather) and the USS Melbourne are among the casualties.
2370 - Ensign Matthews graduates from Starfleet Academy with majors in Single Man Craft and Astrophysics, and a minor in Warp Theory. Matthews proceeds into Starfleet Command School.
2371 - Matthews graduates from SCS as Lieutenant Junior Grade and serves support on Danube-class runabout USS Newport attached to Deep Space 9.
2373 - LTJG Matthews and Newport reattached to Starbase 8; Dominion and Cardassian alliance invades Bajoran sector, takes control of DS9; Dominion War begins. Matthews and the Newport are not involved in Operation Return. Matthews is promoted to Lieutenant.
2374 - Newport's ranking officer is killed in combat; Matthews takes lead, rallying runabouts and shuttles as makeshift fighters in harrying runs against Dominion forces on Starbase 8. Surprisingly, this maneuver works surprisingly well, allowing the outnumbered light cruisers defending Starbase 8 to turn the tide and successfully defend the station.

Powers: Lieutenant Matthews is a normal human, with no outstanding powers to separate him from the species.

Skills: A graduate of Starfleet Academy and Starfleet Command School, Matthews is a fully trained Starfleet officer with battlefield experience and leadership capability. With several battlefield commendations and ribbons under his belt, he's demonstrated a mind for tactical and strategic thinking. He's also decently-learned, from the age of 12 onwards, in Gōjū-ryū karate, and as such is skilled in close-quarters combat. He's considered about the equivalent of a second-dan black belt in the art.

Despite little infantry experience, he possesses the requisite textbook training in such fields as per standard SCS schooling, and experience in dealing with enemy boarders during the Battle of Starbase 8. His greatest skills at this age are in the fields of piloting (specifically shuttlecraft and other single-man/small-crew crafts) and engineering of the same, a kind of Jack-of-all-trades in understanding the concepts of starship design and maintenance, giving him moderate insight into most aspects of a starship's workings (albeit usually on a smaller scale).

Player and Character are both over the age of 18. Star Trek and its associated trademarks are copyright to Paramount Pictures.
