BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
A. Background Summary:
The Alden family is an ancient line of English nobility, traced back to the Eleventh Earth century, in which the Aldens were Dukes of the land. The family has remained prideful of their highborn origins and remain mostly traditional. The family resides in Salisbury, England, in a rather large, traditionally built home.

Roman was raised by wait staff and nannies, alongside his siblings. David, his oldest brother, was to be heir of the family, and this was made most clear. He was expected to act as old-style nobility did, with honourable, worthwhile pursuits. Expected to always look his best and keep complaints to himself, he was taught young how one must carry themselves. At four years old, Roman began learning the violin.

He was sent away to one of the best and oldest boarding schools in the country, where he began taking foreign language courses in the first grade. He was made to choose extracurriculars, and so he started with Jiu Jitsu when he was 7. It was at this school that Roman met his best friend, Jay Caliano, whose father was a Starfleet captain and had been a security officer before that. He became fascinated with starships and he and Jay played pretend Officers or Officer Vs Alien. They made a pact that when they were older, Roman would be captain and Jay his first officer.

When Roman told his parents, however, they were less than pleased. While David would follow in their footsteps, the Alden family thought Starfleet was frivolous and pointless. A waste of talent. They told him that becoming a Starfleet officer was beneath him, that he should do something more useful.

He moved on to secondary school, where he continued Jiu Jitsu and picked up fencing. He and Jay, still attending school together, became keenly interested in science. Jay and Roman studied biology, zoology, and biological anthropology together, though Roman also took hard science classes like chemistry and physics.

At home, Roman was always the younger brother, and all family importance was placed on David, the oldest child in the family. While both boys were accomplished and successful in school, David was always “better” at everything in the eyes of their parents. The girls, Roman’s sisters were graceful and perfect, having done dance and choir, learned instruments, and of course, excelled in school. As Roman grew older, his rivalry with his brother only grew worse.

The family was supportive of his scientific pursuit but when they discovered Roman planned to go to Starfleet academy, they told him to pick something else. There was a huge fight over the topic, in which it was also discovered that Roman had no plans to start a family. He had his eyes on a career, and he didn’t want to leave kids behind on Earth when he would never be home. At 15, Roman was disowned by the Alden family, excommunicated by his parents and siblings. He moved in with Jay and Jay’s family for the remainder of school.

Upon turning 16, Roman and Jay applied to Starfleet academy and both were accepted. Studying the same majors, they spent the majority of Academy in the same classes, even getting the same Academy ship posting on the USS Jamestown. When they graduated the Academy, Roman and Jay parted ways, Roman assigned to the USS Ardent and Jay to the USS Jubilant. But the two wrote to each other frequently. On the Ardent, Roman was promoted and made the CSO.

In 2246, Jay was reassigned to the USS Ardent, into Roman’s department, and the two worked closely together once again.

A little over a year later, on Earthdate 19 September 2247, the USS Ardent was attacked by a Klingon Cruiser. The Ardent was a science vessel, and ill-equipped for what appeared to be a planned attack. It had been studying an energy anomaly near the edge of Federation space. The attack breached the hull and damaged the ship, leaving it crippled. On a scientific vessel of 230 officers, 18 were injured and 32 died altogether. The majority of the damage had been based around the main science section, and Roman and Jay were both severely injured, caught in the blast of the hull breach. For Roman, 3 broken ribs, a broken femur, and mild-moderate burns. For Jay, 2 broken ribs, severe burns, and a laceration to his abdomen. Jay hung on for several days before passing away as a result of his injuries.

It took a month for their distress call to be heard and the remaining crew rescued, and another two months for Roman to heal and be returned to duty.

When Roman was returned to duty, he was appointed CSO of a new ship, the USS Victory, and promoted to full Lieutenant. His posting there lasted three years, where his work in the science department earned him a promotion to first officer and he was assigned the USS Sentinel to take the position.
(The rest of the history happened IRP)
Three months after Roman became the Sentinel’s XO, Captain Carmichael had to leave for personal reasons, leaving Roman as aCO for a month before the new Captain, Captain Rogers, took the ship over. Roman worked closely with the captain’s yeoman while he was aCO and she often helped out in the lab. Between working together, and her help with Roman’s nightmares Roman and yeoman Rand became close and started dating, in October 2250. By June 2251, they were engaged to marry.

B. Personality Summary:
( https://www.16personalities.com/esfj-personality )
Roman is confident and assertive, always sure of himself. He rarely doubts his abilities and may come off as slightly condescending or cold. However, he puts others before himself, and he’s always willing to lend others an ear. He considers himself an optimist though he keeps his expectations realistic. Roman works best when he has someone to bounce ideas off of, and may work slowly alone. He tends to be a stickler for rules, inflexible and unwilling to change.

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES
A.Recent Fitness Reports
Roman has no underlying or chronic conditions at this time, he is found to be in excellent physical condition. No vision or hearing problems noted. All signs look fantastic.
His injuries from the attack three years ago have healed well, with minimal aftereffects. A mild deformity of his ribs where they were broken and a small burn scar on his chest. His right leg, which suffered a femur fracture is back into good shape, though rarely, he may experience minor pain in the area.

Major Medical History
There is a note in the medical file about noncompliance and stubbornness with medical direction and orders.

October 2247: Roman’s right femur had a compound fracture, the area surrounding the injury lacerated and burned. The right side of his chest, just below the shoulder, was burned, three ribs in the area broken. He was in sickbay for a month on the Ardent, then transferred to a medical ship where he did his PT and rehabilitation before returning to duty. Treated by Doctor Samuel Elliot and Doctor Suluk aboard the Ardent, and Doctor Zachary Snow aboard the medical ship.

December 2250 - January 2251: A small tear in the muscle in his right thigh worsened over a period of several months resulting in clots that cut off circulation and caused pain and damaged and dying muscle. Surgery was done to removed the dead and damaged tissue, and a graft was placed to replace the lost muscle. Roman remained in sickbay for a week, and did PT for a month. Treated by Doctor Elbbirt aboard the Sentinel.

June 2251: Electrocuted by a piece of lab machinery as part of a plot to take his life, Roman’s hands were burned by the electrical current, the muscles and nerves along his arms and chest fried. The damage was corrected with neural and dermal regenerators. His heart was damaged by the current: muscular damage occured, mostly to the thick muscular wall of the left ventrical, leaving it swollen and misshapen. An open heart surgery was required to repair the muscle surgically and with a dermal regenerator directly to the heart muscles. He was kept asleep for the first week and awake two days in sickbay. He was on a cardiac support unit for the first three days after surgery, then kept asleep two more days to let the heart rest. A flashback caused him to panic and make a run to get away from sickbay, causing a relapse in his heart, and he was put back to sleep and put back on the cardiac support unit for an additional five days, kept asleep for one extra, then allowed to wake. There is permanent damage to his heart muscle, that will not bar him from duty, but puts him at higher risk for future cardiac events. (To be added to) Treated by Doctors Elbbirt and Grat.

Biographical Notes
Background Summary
Compared to the Alden family, the Calianos were nothing special. Well off, sure, but not crazy rich well off. Jay spent his early childhood playing in the mud and playing Starship Captain. His father was away, commanding the USS Defiant, from the time Jay was three to eight years old. His mother told him many stories and his father would send them tales of the ship’s adventures, little gifts, things he picked up at star bases or on alien planets. Jay always knew he wanted to go into Starfleet, too.

He went away to one of the best and oldest boarding schools in the country, because it would look good in the future, regardlessof what he chose to do. There he met his best friend, Roman Alden, a very uptight and busy boy whose parents never ever sent him anything. He told Roman all about his Captain in the Starfleet father and Roman seemed absolutely enthralled with it. They played pretend Officers or Officer Vs Alien and made a pact that when they were older, Roman would be captain and Jay his first officer.

He moved on to secondary school, where he continued Jiu Jitsu (which he had picked up with Roman, so they could “train to be officers” and picked up fencing. He and Roman, still attending school together, became keenly interested in science. Jay and Roman studied biology, zoology, and biological anthropology together, though Roman also took hard science classes like chemistry and physics. Jay took more soft sciences, botany and atmospheric sciences.

Jay was an only child and he spent much of his time with Roman, whenever he could. Otherwise, he pursued hobbies. He did art, he liked to draw, and some computer science work for fun. Jay’s father was home from ages eight to ten, but then was called back to Starfleet and was gone for another five year mission. When Jay told his parents he and Roman were following Jay’s father’s footsteps they were thrilled and did anything they could do help out.

When Jay was fifteen, he and his family took an excommunicated Roman in and treated him as their own.

Upon turning 16, Roman and Jay applied to Starfleet academy and both were accepted. Studying the same majors, they spent the majority of the Academy in the same classes, even getting the same Academy ship posting on the USS Jamestown. When they graduated the Academy, Roman and Jay parted ways, Roman assigned to the USS Ardent and Jay to the USS Jubilant. But the two wrote to each other frequently. On the Ardent, Roman was promoted and made the CSO.

In 2245, Jay was reassigned to the USS Ardent, into Roman’s department, and the two worked closely together once again. Jay turned down a position on another ship as a full CSO in 2246 in order to keep working with Roman.

In Earthdate September of 2247, the USS Ardent was attacked by a Klingon Cruiser. The Ardent was a science vessel, and ill-equipped for what appeared to be a planned attack. It had been studying an energy anomaly near the edge of Federation space. The attack breached the hull and damaged the ship, leaving it crippled. On a scientific vessel of 230 officers, 18 were injured and 32 died altogether. The majority of the damage had been based around the main science section, and Roman and Jay were both severely injured, caught in the blast of the hull breach. For Roman, three broken ribs, a broken femur (compound fracture with a laceration), and mild-moderate burns. For Jay, two broken ribs, severe burns, and a laceration to his lower abdomen. Jay hung on for several days before he passed away as a result of his injuries.

After the Ardent was rescued at last, Jay was given a posthumous promotion to full lieutenant.

Personality Summary
Jay is similar to Roman, stubborn and determined but took a much less serious and much more playful approach to life. Throughout high school and academy he had a string of dates. He is known to get in a bit of trouble. He often made Roman lighten up and do something fun or relaxing. He is a bit of a jokester, but he keeps all pranks harmless and fun for all involved.

Miscellaneous Notes
Recent Fitness Reports
Jay is fit and healthy, with no medical complaints as of his last physical.

2247 death report: Severe burns to 30% of the body, chest, back and arms affected. Moderate burns to additional 15%, legs, chest, and abdomen affected. Two broken ribs and four inch abdominal laceration caused by flying debris, injuries result of hull breach and explosion.

Current Recreational Interests
- Fencing.
- Martial Arts: Jiu Jitsu
- Reading/Research.
