**Physical Traits

James is a tall man, muscular but not stocky. He has a head of dark brown hair, that he moves from short and sharp when he’s on active service to a medium length mop when things are more relaxed. He was wide shoulders and long legs that lead onto large feet, occasionally ungainly but always steady. He has hazel brown eyes and a jagged smile that he uses whenever he can. James is a charmer by heart but separates work from pleasure, with a few exceptions. He will try to lift the mood in tense settings and has a weapon-grade humour but he tries to avoid being cruel, as it does him no favours.


James Patrick O’Hara (Seamus Padraig Ó hEaghra) is a human from west coast of Ireland, Earth. Born into a farming family in 2376 in County Galway, he grew up surrounded by the revived Irish language, the history and stories of his people, and the harsh but beautiful landscapes of Ireland. James, or J.P as his brothers called him, lived a rather traditional life compared to his Star Fleet peers. The boy lived in the fields and hills of Connemara, intentionally untouched by technology to preserve their wonder and beauty. Ireland’s long, proud and often tragic history inspired James and he is excited for the 375th anniversary of Irish Reunification in 2399. But, while others were tempted to stay in tranquility or head into the metropolis of Dublin for work, James took a different approach.

Fascinated by the order and history of the military, he joined the Territorial Battalion of the Irish Defense Forces, Óglaigh na hÉireann, when he finished secondary school in 2394. He honed his organisation and communication skills in the army, and enjoyed camping under the stars with his comrades. His brief time in Renmore Barracks had taught him a few basic skills; follow orders, present yourself well and never switch off if you want to survive. As a 3 Star Private, O’Hara learned basic phaser skills (alongside some older firearms), intelligence gathering, recon, signals, use of heavy weapons, battlefield strategy, logistics and small-scale commanding. Alongside his duties in the Army, James also went about his studies in the National University of Ireland, Galway. A combination of Federation Studies and Philosophy fed his academic hunger while he made a living as a recruit. Within a year, he was a Corporal and was presented with the opportunity to become an officer cadet.

But there was a yearning in the Irishman still. There was something more he dreamed of doing. Then, a representative from Star Fleet passed through the barracks on a sunny Summer’s night. They were looking for young and capable cadets to join the exploration of the galaxy and the protection of the Federation. Deciding he had gained all he wanted to from the army, he used his chance of commission in the army as leverage to join Star Fleet. And just like that, the young man was whisked away; first to London and then to the most beautiful city he had ever seen on Earth, San Francisco. It was tough for the young man to say goodbye to Ireland, but he knew other Irish people in the Fleet and even some who had done very well for themselves. Even though the training process was different, and the accents, people and places were very different, James soaked it all up. Deciding his years of sport and army life suited the Security wing, James O’Hara now ventures forth as a Security Cadet.
