Character Biography

Full Name: Petty Officer 3rd Class Benjamin (Benjy) King Yousefi


Appearance:
Skin Tone - Olive
Eye Colour - Nut brown
Hair - Black, fringe
Accent - A strange combination of Persian and Australian accents

A skinny man of mixed ethnicity from a Tasmanian mother and a Persian father. Right arm absent. Wears a toolbelt over his uniform while on duty, whenever allowed by the ranking officer. Off duty, he tends to choose bright, colourful shirts and is known to stow a tool or two in his pockets… just in case.


Personality:
Benjy is a young man keen to prove his mettle. His lack of experience fuels naivety of politicking and more general greater goings on around him although he has the interest and smarts to learn and adapt to this. He surprises others with his seeming fearlessness in the face of danger. Excitable and passionate, his disposition is largely invariant whether on or off duty.


Relationships:
Mother - Jeanne King (47)
Father - Omid Yousefi (49)

Closest Friend - Artie O’Sullivan (21)


Biography:
Born on the Barisa Prime colony in 2374. Raised by loving parents, assisting and learning from his engineer/technician mother who was responsible for the maintenance of their section of the colony. Suffered from bullying at the hands of the other children of the colony, causing him to become recluse and to develop mental and physical afflictions. During this time, his best friend Artie stayed by his side and they grew an imperishable bond. After re-engaging with the community with help of his doctor, Doctor Turak, he became more involved with his mother’s technical and repair work, taking on jobs of his own across the colony. With desires to both further his own skills and see more of the galaxy than the habitats and planes of his upbringing, he applied and was accepted to the Starfleet Technical Services Academy.


Medical History:
- Born with congenital amputation of the right arm. He is provided a standard issue holographic emitter with a neural link which can provide him a holographic limb. However, he only uses this tool when required in emergency situations.
- Suffered, and still does to a much lesser degree, from an eating disorder (see Psychological History) which led to his becoming dangerously underweight and associated immunocompromisation.
- Badly affected by a series of viruses during his most vulnerable period, three in as many years.


Psychological History:
- Became reclusive during his early teenage years as a result of bullying.
- Later developed an eating disorder. A colony doctor did much to help him, specifically by forming a form of friendship with him and providing him with opportunities to volunteer to help their people.
- No longer finds these issues debilitating, and is of healthy weight, but still lapses and has ‘bad days’.


Educational Background:
- Provided with an elementary education by his parents: technical as well as basic scientific teaching from his mother, what social and artistic education his father could provide.
- Attended the Starfleet Technical Services Academy on a course existing to provide much needed technicians to Federation outposts. Wider engineering and science classes, as well as typical emergency medical training, were included in a truncated form. Graduated as a Petty Officer 3rd Class.
