Physical Description:

Kane is a striking individual, standing over six feet tall and weighing over two hundred pounds. While that alone is above the human average, he is also covered in tattoos from his neck to his ankles. His ear lobes bear small scars from multiple piercings. His hair is brownish-blonde, as is his beard, and is usually kept just barely within uniform regulations giving him a somewhat aggressive look. He has multiple scars across his body from his youth and time with the NDFD Rescue Squad.

Psychological Profile:

Subject possesses above average intelligence and a great aptitude for medicine and biological science. He has a quick temper and is not above physical confrontation if provoked. His upbringing has instilled a significant distrust of authority, and he is slow to trust. His demeanor is aggressive and confrontational, but that is tempered by a strong sense of duty and loyalty. Subject performs extremely well under pressure which is key to his success in his chosen profession.

It should be noted that the subject has a strong desire to protect and help those whom he perceives as weak or fragile. This character trait has led him on more than one occasion into verbal and physical confrontations with coworkers, law enforcement agents, and superior officers. These occurrences have given the subject a reputation for being unstable and violent; but this is not entirely accurate. The subject, quite simply, is a born protector. It is core to his personality, it is reflected in his career path, and it is the reason for his success in said path.

Biography:

Born to unknown parents in the slums of New Detroit on a colony world in the Cestari system, Solomon was named by a worker at the orphanage in which he spent his first ten years for a character in an old pulp serial book. At the age of ten, the orphanage was destroyed by fire and the children left on the street and Solomon spent the next eight years living homeless. Incredibly, he managed to ensure that he went to school; forging documents allowing him to attend a charter school and receive a rudimentary education through high school.

His educators noted an aptitude for biology early on, but without any real support outside of the classroom, Solomon’s opportunities were limited. He was gifted upon graduation with a scholarship to a Vocational School, where he was able to work part-time and attend classes. He graduated at the top of his class in EMT training and took the Fire Department Exam immediately afterwards, passing on the first try. He was hired onto the Department as an EMT but showed great skill and worked his way up to Air Rescue and Paramedic. It was here that Solomon truly came into his own.

New Detroit held many of the societal problems that it’s namesake had centuries ago: crime, corruption, vice, and poverty. The Air Rescue Squad was tasked with retrieving injured persons from hazardous areas including burning structures, HazMat spill areas, and areas in which violence had broken out to such a scale that casualties had to be evacuated. Kane was trained not only in the medical aspect of these operations, but also in manning the defensive systems of the Evac vehicles. He became quite adept at vehicle weapon systems. These abilities got him noticed by a Star Fleet officer who had family evacuated by Kane during a high-rise fire that was started by a gang battle. She convinced him that he was wasting his potential and encouraged him to join Star Fleet. He applied, but with his background he was rejected. This made him furious, but also created a drive to do what he had been told he couldn’t do. Using all his resources, he traveled from New Detroit to Earth.

Arriving in San Francisco, he went directly to the Academy with a copy of his application, references from the Fire Chief and multiple coworkers, and the Star Fleet officer who set him on the course. With all of these in hand, he walked directly into the lobby and said to the receptionist “I‘m here to join Star Fleet. I’m not leaving till you let me in.” and slapped the documents on the desk. He was there for four hours refusing to move, arguing with every administrator that arrived and probably would still be in that spot save for a singular occurrence.

A large crash occurred just outside the Academy entrance. Hearing screeching and the impact followed by crunching metal, Kane looked and saw several people injured an three vehicles on fire. He rushed out to the scene and immediately began triaging the injured. He then saw a child trapped in the back seat of one of the vehicles; it’s parent’s unconscious in the front. Two Star Fleet Security officers ran past him and started trying to pull the door open. Kane knew it was useless and knocked one of the officers out of the way, grabbing his phaser from his belt. He fired at the hinges, opening the door and pulling the occupants to safety while suffering second degree burns to the palms of his hands, face, and forearms. He continued to work on stabilizing the people until medical response arrived on the scene, at which time he promptly passed out.

He woke in the Academy infirmary. Standing by his biobed was a Star Fleet Admiral who was staring at him. “You don’t look like Star Fleet, that’s for damn sure.” he said. “But… you definitely have the right attitude. Welcome to Star Fleet Academy, Cadet. I’m interested to see what you make of this chance.” And he turned and walked away. Confused, Kane lay back and was processed into the next class over the next few days.

His time at the Academy was notable for several reasons. First, he was selected by his classmates as class leader for the first two years. This was promptly rescinded after a brawl with three older class-men. Second, he finished third in class after the General course. An instructor remarked “He would have been first had he not spent so much time in front of the Disciplinary Committee.” Additionally, he finished not only first in the Medical course, but graduated as Physician’s Assistant with advanced coursework and his previous experience. He was also selected for advanced training in Emergency Medicine and Surgery training, all of which he completed with great success. Most remarkable, was his insistence on cross training in Star ship Tactics and Weaponry systems. He finished his Academy career as a Medical Officer with Tactical Officer qualification; an uncommon feat with an even more uncommon combination.

He was assigned to the USS Stephen Hawking, a Search and Rescue vessel, for his Cadet cruise. On board, he developed a reputation as a great doctor and a solid tactical officer, but a hard person to get along with. He did make a few friends, but the nature of his childhood meant he kept them at arm’s length. He proved himself to a capable officer overall, and he was promoted to Ensign and then Lieutenant Junior Grade after his actions assisting the evacuation of a stricken Federation vessel caught in an ion storm and being dragged into a gravity well. Kane boarded the vessel and remained even when given the order to evacuate. He drug two unconcious passengers to the transporter room and beamed out less than a minute before the ship collapsed in on itself. Kane’s actions saved the lives of several personnel thought lost and earned him the Citation for Conspicuous Gallantry with his promotion.

He was then transferred to the USS Chernov, to serve as a Tactical and Medical Officer.
