Personality & Traits

General Overview Grayson is the fun playful type who is always getting up to mischief. His friends know him as the bubbly, loveable prankster. Grayson has always been a warm and approachable person; he is everyone's best friend as people quite often open up to him. He is the bubbly, life of the party sort. Always chasing new and exciting experiences as well as new and impressive boyfriends. This is a boy who knows how to play hard, but at the same time, knows how to work hard. He takes his work seriously... most of the time, known to crack a joke in a tense situation. His choice of humour tends to lean to the more sarcastic side.

Grayson 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.
Strengths On his more positive side, Grayson 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 shows a side of him no one expects, being courageous and showing a calm façade under pressure.
Weaknesses On the more negative side of his personality, he is impulsive and doesn't always think things through to the conclusion. Mix this with his slight impatience at times, and this has gotten him into trouble a few times. Grayson's eye is known to wander to those he finds attractive, and this does cloud his judgement at times. He lists cupcakes as a grave weakness of his.
Ambitions To captain a star ship and explore the openness of space.
To find and marry his one true love.

Personal History Grayson was born in the hustle and bustle of New York City. Grayson was born to someone else than the mother he has come to know. His father, an Ambassador to Trill, told him later in life his birth mother wanted to give him up for adoption, as she had a family of her own and had only spent, what was referred to as a 'lapse in judgement' leaving her family temporarily.

She returned to her's, and Grayson's father began raising him on his own. His initial years in life were not average. He spent much time travelling from world to world. It gave him an interesting perspective on life, meeting so many different cultures and would be the basis for his future career choices.

Eventually, the time came, and his father decided it was best to leave his job as an Ambassador for the good of his son and settle down somewhere where he could receive a proper education. It was at this point Grayson started to notice just how different he was from the other children around him. He had spent so much time embracing other races differences; he never thought himself to be different at all. His school days were average, he got buy, made no real trouble, got good grades. The only trouble he ever got it, is when he decided to strip down and rebuild the class computers one day during lunch, thus his interest in technology was born. Grayson was always teased for being a 'half-breed' or having 'drawn on spots'. His Trill spots were something he would have to become accustomed to as he grew. Grayson didn’t like that his were not as pronounced as his father’s and with the teasing felt ashamed of them. It was not until later in life he understood this to be because he had a dual heritage of a Trill and Human. He began to study both aspects of his culture. Seeing the affect a symbiont could have, he vowed never to become joined with one, never to become his father.

It wasn't until high school Grayson started noticing he was different than most of his friends. He was more interested in clubs and more academic activities, they were more into parties and chasing girls. It was at this time he began to devote his studies to starships. He was fascinated by it, how ships worked and why they did what they did.

Eventually, the story of his birth came to a head. Feeling betrayed by his father, he wanted to get away. He was so angry Grayson even cast off his father's name and took on that of his biological mother. How further away you can get than space, he thought.Grayson was born in the hustle and bustle of New York City. Grayson was born to someone else than the mother he has come to know. His father, an Ambassador to Trill, told him later in life his birth mother wanted to give him up for adoption, as she had a family of her own and had only spent, what was referred to as a 'lapse in judgement' leaving her family temporarily.
Starfleet History On a late admission, he was accepted into the Academy at 17 with his basic subjects to complete a joint degree in Engineering Studies and Starship Design.

He spent the next four years here, honing his skills, avoiding love, waiting for the day he could leave into deep space. Taking on board more advanced classes than most, as well as personal research into many different aspects of his degree, which he found to be interesting and pertinent, he was ready for his cadet cruise. Grayson was placed on a small Nova class Science Ship, the Demetri.

His first post after this was on the USS Malstrom. This provided a memorable time there as a Junior Engineer. This is the year he met his half brother on a joint mission with the USS Daystrom. They were surveying a rare class of nebula, which after several weeks of study, ended up sending most of the crew mad with paranoid delusions of grandeur. Thankfully he and much of the other mixed race crew were unaffected and managed to get the ship out. Here Starfleet noticed his talent and dedication to his duties and by the time the ship returned to Earth, most crew had come to terms with their traumatic experiences and put it behind them. To this day, most details of that mission are classed as strictly classified to need to know eyes only.

Grayson previously served onboard the USS Galileo before taking ill due to a, what he believes now, to be a manipulative bonding with a Betazoid. He took a position within the Starfleet Corps of Engineers to begin working on building starships. When working on his most recent ship, he learned that the ship was renamed Galileo. Instantly, worrying about friends, raced to find out their wellbeing.

When finishing up the project, Grayson requested a transfer back to the Galileo. Who better to be the Chief Engineer than one of the people responsible for the ship's creation?
Medical History Various tests for symbiont viability when younger.

While test show Grayson is viable for a symbiont, the pouch is not readily available and is smaller than most full Trill. Surgery would be required to access it, as it lays behind a 'normal human' stomach.

Grayson's Trill spots are much more subdued and at times are barely visible.
