Character Summary Caspian is a dedicated and capable young officer who sometimes finds it difficult to find a balance between the duties and responsibilities of her career with those of her hedonistic personal life. Although regarded by many as being a 'party girl' who lives for a good time, Caspian in fact feels quite lonely. Her career as a Starfleet officer provides her with direction and structure and quite often she wonders what would have become of her if her application to Starfleet had been rejected.

Physical Description Caspian is of average height with a curvy, muscular build. She is regarded by many as being very attractive - a fact which Caspian is well aware of and makes use of for her own benefit on a regular basis. Her hair is long and blonde and whilst on duty is normally worn as a plait or on top of her head. Her direct and flirtatious nature means that she often maintains direct eye contact for long periods of time - a trait which others sometimes find either extremely sexy or extremely disconcerting.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Although Caspian is completely devoted to her role and is always the consummate professional whilst on duty, her firebrand personality is still there in reserve for off-duty moments. She is the life and soul of a party whenever she socialises and her friends are consistently amazed by her capacity for alcoholic beverages – and the fact that she never seems to suffer a hangover the following day.

Openly bisexual, Caspian indulges in frequent liaisons with members of both genders but has never so far committed to a long-term or monogamous relationship. She has a great many friends and acquaintances but sometimes wonders to herself how strong those friendships really are – would they be there for her if she really needed them or whether people just like to be associated with the ‘party girl to be seen with’.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths - Determined, Honest, Loyal, Independent, Highly Intelligent, Direct
Weaknesses - Stubborn, Hedonistic, Easily-Led, Risk-Taker, Direct
Ambitions To her surprise, Caspian discovered that she had two driving ambitions which she came to realise during her Academy education. The first was to always perform her duties to the best of her abilities - every day. The second was to be the best leader she could possibly be - and while at no point has she considered ever becoming the commanding officer of a starship, as an officer she would always do the right thing by those who looked to her for leadership and guidance.
Hobbies & Interests During off duty moments when not partying, Caspian likes to indulge in most sports – especially those of the ‘extreme’ variety – and has been cautioned by Federation security for base jumping from the Empire State Building in New York and avoiding security personal to take part in free-running with three associates through the opening ceremony of the new Tellarite Embassy on Earth which was attended by the Federation President and the Tellarite Ambassador.

Since joining Starfleet, Caspian has remained in regular contact with both of her parents but they have rarely physically spent time with each other.

Personal History Born in Paris, France in 2373, Charlotte Caspian spent her formative years in several of the more renowned historical cities of the Federation. Caspian’s father was one of the Federation’s premier anthropologists whilst her mother was a renowned geneticist – both parents were convinced that there was a link connecting all sentient life in the universe and directed all of their energies towards their vocation. Because of this, Caspian rarely saw her parents and from her early teens began to get into minor scrapes with the law and to socialise with individuals and groups that her parents regarded as ‘undesirable’. During their time on Alpha Centauri, they insisted that their seventeen year-old daughter spent time undergoing emotional counselling. After two sessions, Caspian had seduced the counsellor and entered into a physical relationship with him. Eventually Caspian openly told her parents that she was sleeping with her counsellor during their sessions and the despairing scientists sent her to attend university on Earth.

Incredibly bright from an academic perspective, Caspian was accepted to join Oxford University, and threw herself into her degree course on the History of Federation Art – a course both of her parents fully approved of. During her first year however, she seduced one of her tutors and recorded holo-images of their lovemaking. Soon afterwards, following an art exhibition in London, Caspian seduced the tutor’s wife and took more holo-images. Then she sent copies of each set to both husband and wife.

Following her suspension from Oxford (and the dismissal of her tutor), Caspian was eventually expelled from the university for conduct unbecoming a student of such a famous institution. By this time she was eighteen years old and promptly submitted her application to Starfleet Academy.

Citing desires to see the galaxy, protect the Federation and continue her pursuit of knowledge, Caspian passed the entrance interviews and examinations with flying colours, her examiners making note of her particularly high level of IQ and the direct manner in which she applied herself to all challenges. Coupled with her off-duty interests in sports and physical fitness, Cadet Caspian elected to join the Security Branch School.

Over the next four years, Caspian applied herself diligently to her studies and matured into a serious and focused young woman – although she maintained a mischievous streak which threatened to get her into trouble on a number of occasions… During her Academy career, Caspian’s parents made it frequently known that they felt that their daughter was aiming low in terms of her potential and that she should leave Starfleet to pursue an academic career.

Caspian graduated with honours in 2394 and was immediately assigned as a Security Officer aboard USS Dominator, spending the next two years undergoing advanced training in security procedures, small unit tactics and close protection operations in addition to successfully performing her duties. In 2396, Caspian was promoted Lieutenant JG and assigned as Assistant Chief Tactical & Security Officer aboard the much smaller Defiant-class USS Vanguard. This new role required Caspian to learn the duties of being bridge Tactical Officer and became highly proficient in the operational and technical requirements of maintaining a starship's combat systems. Her time aboard Vanguard also allowed her to further her training in small arms, negotiation and diplomacy, anti-terrorism & counter-intelligence operations and landing party security procedures – with Caspian herself assuming close-protection duties for Vanguard’s commanding officer during away missions.
