Personal Mato: “Consider your origins: you were not made to live as brutes, but to follow virtue and knowledge” - Dante Alighieri


Appearance:
Jethro’s diamond shaped face is framed by short trimmed light brown hair styled into a small pompadour in the front fading to short hair in the back. A pair of inquisitive and kind steel blue eyes sit on either side of a thin, short nose. A trimmed and clean 5 o’clock shadow always hugs his face. In the middle of his is a little offer center from a break his nose in younger years. The build of his body is akin to that of a swimmer’s with a little more muscle filling a wide chest.


Personal History:

Years 0-8:
In the Year 2370, Erik Jethro Avant was born on the Federation starship U.S.S Lovelace to parents Cmdr. Ava Avant and Richard Avant while on a survey mission in the Beta Quadrant. His mother was the XO of the ship and his father was civilian scientist attached with the starship to continue his research in the quantum aspects of stellar phenomenon and as addition science hand for the ship to utilize, if needed. The first eight years of Jethro’s life was centered around the life aboard the Lovelace. Both he parents were born on Earth, but the starship was home. Erik and his parents visited Earth often as his mother’s leave would allow and often on solo trips with his father, but to him it, Earth or any planet was nothing more then fun shore leave. He decided from very early on that space was his home. From both parents, Jethro began to receive in-depth knowledge of starships. In the later years, Erik began to learn and help his father in his research in his free time.

Then everything changed.

When Jethro was eight, a routine cataloguing mission took a turn for the worth when violent first contact surprised the Lovelace. During an Away-Mission, Cmdr. Ava Avant was killed in-action, defending another member of her away team. After the situation resolved, Richard Avant and his son left the Lovelace to spend time back on Earth mourning, spending time with family and figuring out what to do next.

Years 9-17:
For the next fours years, Jethro and his father would live his father’s family in San Francisco, Earth. Richard Avant was able to find work thought several civilian institutions for continuing his private research and work in other studies. During this time, Jethro and his father’s grew stronger and the two grew very close. However, while Erik enjoyed living planet-side, he got antsy not being on a starship. This energy and thirst for excitement often lead to Jethro getting into to trouble. When not working on his studies or helping his father, Jethro would often hang around Starfleet Headquarters and Academy. He would study, watch and often talk to any personal he could and enjoyed hearing stories. On a few occasions, he was able to sneak past security of the Academy to try out holodeck training simulations and view the action of the Academy up close. Being a kid and his actions harmless, Jethro usually got off on a warning or low level punishments. Richard would often excuse these adventures, seeing much of Ava in his son.

Through his studies and continued help with his father’s work, Erik showed an aptitude and enjoyment in science. Following closely in his father’s footsteps, Jethro’s interest peaked towards the study of stellar phenomena. His interests drifted towards more a focus on the quantum analyst of dark energy, its expansive properties and its effects on stellar objects.

In 2382 Richard Avant was approached by Starfleet to head a research study on a grouping of stellar phenomenon on the edge of Federation space in the Alpha quadrant. Finally, Jethro would be heading back into the stars. Over the next following years he and his father would transfer from starship to out-post to star base and so on as Richard Avant’s team’s study progressed. Faced with my new sites and faces, Erik would encounters many adventures and many sticky situations. On one such out-post, he and group of friends would find themselves in a fight with some Talarian youth who’s families and orders had also found themselves on the same planet for research. The group of Talarians had been tormenting a group of native children and Jethro had to step in. Conflicting ideals clashed and a fight broke out. The fight was only stopped by a Talarian commander and Erik’s father interceding. This lead to a bit of tension between the Federation research team and the Talarians. Erik wallked away from the fight with broken nose, which he had the doctor set natural, a few cracked ribs and a bruised collar bone.

A year later, in his 16th year, Jethro got into another fight, this time with the Breen. Breen Privateers raided the research outpost, and like always, instead of following instructions, Erick charged into action. He helped security officers push off the raid, but in the process received a puncture wound to the lower intestine.

Years 18- Current:
In 2390, Jethro submitted his first application for entrance into Starfleet Academy. However, despite his tests results and his mothers Starfleet record, Erik Jethro Avant was denied Admission into to the Academy. The admission board stated in their refusal that Jethro’s “cowboy attitude” and “recklessness” was “more fitted for an Starfleet Officer of the 22nd or 23rd centuries, not the 24th.” With this rejection, Jethro and his father looked into other colleges and institutes for him to enter. In the same year, Erik was accepted for studies at the Daystrom Research Institute in a multi-track in Quantum mechanics and Stellar Physics. In the proceeding four ears, Jethro kept himself relatively out of trouble as he proceed with his studies and research at Daystrom. Jethro enjoyed his time in Okinawa and finally got used to living planet-side. During his time with the Institute, Erik was able to continue his research and curiosity into the quantum analyst of Dark Energy.

After his studies conclude at Daystrom in 2394, Jethro reapplied for admission into Starfleet Academy. This time he was accepted. In the same year, he enter the Academy in a track in Advanced Theoretical Physics. During his three years, Erik was an exemplary cadet…well except for a few minor infraction noted in his record. His over enthusiastic passion for his field led him to often use the astrophysics and stellar cartography labs during unscheduled times. Jethro got for an infraction for hacking and duplicating lab computer in his dorm room for running personal simulation on Dark Energy and its various interaction in Warp Theory. However, despite these infractions, Cadet Erik Jethro Avant was successfully able to make it to his current and final portion of his studies, an assignment on board the training ship, U.S.S. Challenger.
