Personality & Traits

General Overview Scott is the fun, cheery, optimistic type. His friends know him as the bubbly, loveable prankster. Scott has always been a warm and approachable person; he is everyone's best friend as people quite often open up to him. Always chasing new and exciting experiences as well as new and interesting boyfriends, his friends of days gone past knew him as the life of the party. This man knows how to play hard, but at the same time, knows how to work hard. He takes his work seriously and knows through experience that moments of play are when he can also hone his skills and add to his experiences.

Scott takes his duty seriously and gives it the respect and importance it deserves. He genuinely tries to have a friendly rapport with all the crew, so they feel comfortable approaching him at any time they need, he strives to be an understanding, nurturing superior officer to new cadets, unlike the way he was treated.
Strengths & Weaknesses On his more positive side, Scott can be described as being optimistic and enthusiastic in everything he does. He is a kind and caring man to those closest to him and very generous in giving of his time to all who need or ask for it. In tense situations he has been known to show a side of him no one expects, being courageous and displaying a calm façade under pressure.

His slight impatience has gotten him into trouble a few times. Scott's eye is known to wander towards men he finds attractive, and this does cloud his judgment at times in his personal life. Due to conflicts in his past, choosing to work a bar on the weekends, Scott knows to this day some people look down on him and often feel frustrated having to explain his unorthodox approach in relieving some stress and tension that didn't always involve synthohol. To this day he still fears some kind of backlash from his academy days, be that from an angry patron, he had to turn down or another high-ranking officer looking down his nose at him.

He lists cupcakes as a severe weakness of his.
Ambitions To find more stability in his personal life.
To pilot a starship on his days off.
To command his starship one day.
Hobbies & Interests Scott is a keen player of any social drinking game. He loves nothing more than to host a relaxing evening of food, drinks, and games. He is a talented mixologist from working part-time at bars around the academy when he was studying. He is also a talented guitar player and is currently indulging his interest in the gym to bulk up his physique. You will most likely find him in the gym or the lounge, playing his guitar and singing old Earth ‘country’ music.

Personal History Scott was born in the hustle and bustle of New York City. His father is an Ambassador with the Federation, and his mother is a doctor at Starfleet Medical. With exceptionally high-ranked parents, even from as young as he could remember he was moved pillar to post between his parents and a variety of extended family and hired staff to look after him.

From a young age, Scott knew precisely the type of person he was; he loved animals and always went out of his way to help those who were injured; he also liked boys. In a way, this was both a good and bad thing. His family knew exactly what he wanted and how to cater to it, and it led Scott to find his adventures too. Scott always looks back fondly on the few times he got to spend with his father in between assignments, building, and flying model starships, and recalls this as the first moment where fell in love with the stars and the thought of flight.

There were many times his fathers would be called to the principal’s office of his elementary school for something he had said or for a fight he had gotten into for those who picked on him for his differences at a young age. He always struggled to see why people would think and act so differently in different situations. One particular incident was how a childhood friend suddenly turned on him when he joined a sports team of mainly much older boys.

Middle school saw no real change in Scott; only dating was added to the mix. Towards the end of middle school, he came into his own. While he was more geek than jock, he knew he could still attract the attention of others. His first kiss was with a lab partner under the stairs of the science block. It was at this point that his intelligence shone through. His natural aptitude for studying people and getting them quickly onto his way of thinking was a blessing, particularly in group projects which he didn’t enjoy and would rather do himself. This way with people would lead him down other paths though, quickly becoming popular, and being invited to many social events.

High school was much of the same, more trouble and parties, yet stellar grades, and a new boyfriend every other month. He would find out how someone ticked, get bored, and move on. This was until his final year when Scott found a kindred soul in Ryan Ashcroft, a bit of a geek like himself but more musical theatre than technological. They did the whole prom and met the parents thing and for once in a long, Scott felt settled, happy, and content. And, as all high school romances tend to do, it came to an abrupt end when the school did. Scott was more than happy and content to keep seeing Ryan, heading out to New York when he could, as Ryan had been accepted into AMDA. Ryan, on the other hand, wanted to head out and ‘explore more possibilities’. The pair have not spoken since.

The sense of stability he was finally feeling in his life was ripped from under him. He turned to the one thing he knew how to do, read people, and, with his mother in Starfleet Medical he saw a path into seeing the stars and making a difference to those who had always felt the same way he did, slightly lost and looking for connection.

This abrupt change did lead to an initial return to form for Scott at the Academy. Good grades, but now parties, alcohol, and boys. He was beginning to get a bit of a reputation on campus as the party boy who always seemed to pull things together at the last moment and still get top marks. Much to the disagreement of others as a way to begin to curtail his more self-destructive tendencies, he began tending in a local bar tailored to a more LGBT clientele. He saw it as a way to continue having a good time but also in a way that was more productive. There are times this got him in trouble, but it usually involved a member of academy staff accidentally hitting on him and the panic it would be used against them.

During his time at Starfleet Academy, Scott gained a reputation not only for his piloting skills but also for his charm and tendency to capture the hearts of those around him. In a tense standoff with a rival team, Scott's silver tongue and disarming smile diffused the tension, earning him admiration and the nickname "Heartbreaker" from his peers. Far from being offended, Scott embraced the title with pride. It served as a testament to his ability to forge connections effortlessly, whether in matters of the heart or on the battlefield.

As with all cadets, he crashed his fair share of simulated shuttles and ships, once even a real one, but is yet to find a pilot he trusts who hasn't.
