Character Biography

[NOTE: This character was originally played under the character name “Daniel Lerner”, which is identical to my real name. I have since re-named the character to avoid confusion.]

=/\= Appearance =/\=

Human, Caucasian, 6‘0”, 210 lbs. Black hair. Blue eyes. Full beard.

=/\= Backgrounds =/\=

David Johnson’s parents were Janet and Thomas Johnson, members of Starfleet Security assigned to Earth security and intelligence. In addition to being husband and wife, Janet and Thomas were partners in their job, and were responsible for a significant number of intelligence investigations into criminal groups operating out of the Sol system.

When David was 12 years old, he joined his parents on a shuttle trip to Luna. While on route, an explosion took place, partially destroying the shuttle. Janet and Thomas were killed in the explosion. David lost his right hand. A genetic anomaly prevent regeneration of David’s hand, and he has since been fitted with a prosthetic (which to the human eye, cannot be distinguished from a real hand). Starfleet’s investigation of the explosion was inconclusive in the cause, but the most probable theory was an fluke engine malfunction.

After the death of his parents, David was raised by his aunt and uncle, and had a good relationship with his cousin, Sarah, who he saw as an older sister. However, the family tragedy may have led David to wanting to leave Earth behind and explore the Galaxy, and busied himself with studying science.
