Personality & Traits

General Overview Warm and friendly to his friends, and too nice most of the time to have any enemies, Charles Tailor the Fourth (Four, or "Foe", to his friends) is a pretty easygoing chap who enjoys drinking a synthahol over a game of poker that he usually loses. He's been getting better, but he's learned not to bet his pants.

He doesn't like people that beat women, though. That's his red button, and it stays pushed until someone gets knocked out.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths: He can fly a ship like he was born to it, and his attitude is perpetually positive and professional.

Weaknesses: He can crash a ship like he was born to it too, and the last time someone punched a woman in front of him they *both* got knocked out. His fighting style is all-offence, no defence, and he bruises like a ripe banana.
Ambitions He'd like to win a game of poker, find a girl he likes, and settle down somewhere nice.

He also likes to fly, but it's not an ambition if you're already doing what you love.
Hobbies & Interests Flying ships, shuttles, drones, gliders, and drop pods. That last one is more "falling with style" though.

He also enjoys synthahol and poker. Go fish too.

Personal History Charles "Foe" Tailor the Fourth

The nickname comes from his surname, and also his track record with ships. "Foe" describes how if ships had personalities, they would both fear and hate him. This man has piloted a grand total of eighteen vessels over the years; three ships, twelve shuttles, two drop pods, and a Captain's yacht.

He has crashed all of them.

Somehow this has never been proven to be his fault, and in every case he has shown impeccable skill and resolve; staying at the helm with the ground getting quickly closer. This has resulted in zero fatalities, a series of positively *glowing* after-action reviews from his COs, and a reputation as the mortal enemy of anything packing an engine.

He has now been assigned to fly a space station, which mainly just rotates slowly. The theory is that he can't crash a space station because it never really goes anywhere. This theory is widely regarded as tempting fate in the worst way, but Foe's fancy flying has saved the lives of too many ranking officers for him to be written off easily, and the man keeps applying for these positions.
Service Record USS Esmerelda G (crashed into a moon)
USS Hobbiton (crashed into a star)
USS Danzig (crashed all twelve of its shuttles, followed by the ship itself, into an assortment of asteroids, enemy craft, and the ruins of the Esmerelda G)
USS Fife (the ship is fine, if only because they wouldn't let him fly it, but he crashed both of their drop pods into empty houses, and the captain's yacht into a very cold lake)
Cold Station Theta (safe, for now)
