Character Biography

Eyes: Blue
Hair: Dirty Blonde
Birthplace: Earth, Tulsa - Oklahoma

Physical Description:
James (Jim, to his friends) has the honest, open features of a farm boy. His build is just slightly heftier then average, adding to the image of someone from his native Oklahoma plains. He’s the type of guy who’s worked (Hard) with his hands all his life, and loved every minute of it. Light brown hair, weathered skin, and blue eyes that seem to study everything make up the rest of his features.

Psych Eval:
James is generally easygoing, and not hard to get along with. He can be shy around large groups, and has a general dislike of being the center of attention. Though quite intelligent, James often has trouble speaking comfortably. Never described as ‘Glib’, he tends to be a man of few words, unless he goes into the typical engineer ‘techno-speak. Another aspect of his discomfort with communication is his southern accent, which he often finds, causes people to think he isn’t very smart; non-humans in particular. (This breeds a sort of discomfort in the presence of non-humans, though he isn’t bigoted by any means.)

Bio:
James was born just outside Tulsa, Oklahoma (Broken Arrow) to George and Tabitha Franklin. The Franklins had been farmers for generations, and were a large family. James grew up with three brothers, a sister, and various strays his father and mother took in. George Franklin taught his sons (and anyone else who happened to be within earshot) how to work hard, and live honestly. It was a work ethic from another era. Tabitha Franklin insisted that her family be educated. She always told her children to work smart as well as hard.

After a happy, but tiring childhood, (During which James found he had an aptitude for machinery) James decided to enlist in Star Fleet. It wasn’t so much wanderlust, as it was the advanced engines and machinery of starships that finally lured James away from the farm. After serving his four years in the Academy and graduating with honors, James was assigned to the USS Olympic as her Chief Engineer.

After serving on the USS Olympic, James transferred to the USS Wyvern. He served as Chief Engineer there for several months. (Being re-written)
