Personality & Traits

General Overview Merlin is extremely curious and has a keen mind. He approaches the universe with a sometimes childlike wonder, which makes it easy to underestimate him. He'll do his best to look for any solution which avoids violence, but if no such solution can be found, he can be deadly, ruthlessly efficient. He often talks to inanimate objects, such as the turbolifts of the station. This, combined with his tendency for long, not always easy to follow monologues, make him an unknown factor to a lot of people, earning him the nickname 'Weirdo'.

However, once people begin to know him better, they'll find he is very sharp underneath the apparent sillyness. He values friendship above everything else and will be compassionate and loyal to those he calls his friends. Despite his loquaciousness, he can be a remarkably good listener. Above all, he cares a good deal more than he usually shows.
Strengths & Weaknesses Curiousity is both a strength and a weakness.

He has a knack for languages and an almost intuitive insight in engineering.
Ambitions One day he would like to know where he is and where he came from, though he doesn't seem to be in a great hurry to pursue it.

He doesn't seem to be actively trying to pursue a higher rank or position. However, despite this he seems to be climbing through the ranks with frightening speed.
Hobbies & Interests Anything which captures his fancy. Certain subjects can hold him in thrall for weeks or months, only to be utterly ignored once the interest is switched to something else.

He requires little sleep, so he's often found wandering through the station, popping up here and there unexpectedly to talk with people.

Personal History Found in a lifepod which came from the Ul-Kamari Expanse, a nebula near Cold Station Theta thirteen years ago, with absolutely no memory of his past. He has spent some time on the station before moving on. Roughly a year later he decided to join Starfleet and raced through Starfleet Academy in a remarkably short time. From there, he has served in various positions throughout the Fleet, both on ships and on stations. He requested a transfer to some time ago.

Here he served as Chief Strategic Ops officer until he was appointed first Acting XO, then XO by Captain Aine DiAgessi.
