Psychological Profile:

Personality Profile:
Jack has a strong sense of duty to his job and to his friends. On the job he is focused and will do what needs to be done. He is also personable,
willing to help someone out, even if he does not know them. Once crossed, though, he can hold a grudge until it fossilizes. He is also willing to
give anyone a second chance, but that is it. There are no third strikes with him. He does have a weakness for children, and will go out of his way
to help one in need. He keeps that part well hidden, as it does not seem to be a “manly” thing to him, especially because he has never had children

Family History:
A single child, his family gave him a strong sense of self. His father and mother met while teenagers in an orphanage, then married to be able to support themselves without government help. He was born after they were together for ten years. Not having any other relatives, his parents depended on him to take care of himself while they worked for a living, which instilled a strong sense of self-reliance in himself, which served him well in his career. While he was away on Earth studying at the academy, his parents were killed in 2400 in a flitter crash. He was granted emergency leave to return to Penthara IV, where he buried his parents. Selling off the property and goods that they had, he returned to Earth with only some small mementos to remind him of them; a locket that his mother had worn and had never taken off to his knowledge, now slightly melted from the heat of the fire from the crash, his dad’s life ring, and several photo chips.

Liars, thieves, cheats, and anyone trying to take unfair advantage of another, especially someone weaker in one way or another to the one taking advantage. Sushi, which he finds totally disgusting and cannot fathom how anyone could like that vile stuff. Clutter and untidiness in others; though he tries not to let that influence how he deals with others as long as they do not mess with things in his sphere of influence.


  • Working out. He enjoys his routines in the gym. Years of weight training has paid off, giving him a physique a man ten years his junior would envy. Not muscle bound, but in top shape, which serves him well in his current career.
  • Weapons practice. He has become proficient in many of the pistols, rifles, and blades that are part of his life as a member of security. He is also proficient in several different styles of unarmed combat, though he finds he using his own bastardized blending of the styles. It makes his moves hard to predict.
  • Playing the piano. His parents were both into music, and his mom taught him to play the piano. He enjoyed the time spent with her on the baby grand piano in their living room. He continues to play today, having picked up an electronic keyboard, which is much easier to move from duty station to duty station than a true piano would be.
  • Oil Painting. During his treatment for alcoholism, his counselor recommended he find something to occupy his mind instead of drinking, and brought up the subject of painting. He found that he rather enjoyed it, and has become quite adept. Not a master painter, to be sure, he has found that he is a decent painter, and can paint portraits and stellar scenes with equal ease. His quarters
  • Reading, especially real books. His father instilled in him a love for the written word. When he was young they did not have the funds for a reader, so he found himself quite often at the local library, where he would escape his life for a while by reading of the adventures of others.
