P.O.B: Earth, England
Weight: 85 kg
Hair: Dark blond
Marital Status: Single
Outgoing and forthright. He believes in the directives of the Federation and tries to uphold them. He has progressed in his career steadily and without a fault. If he isn't the best, he is very good and means to go as far as he can, less out of ambition than as a personal challenge.
Born in Canterbury, Terence grew up as an only child to a couple of teachers (literature and sports). His interests were long divided between sports and... sports, as he excelled both at team sports (cricket) and solo practice (martial arts and archery).
Terence enjoys martial arts and likes to teach them to anyone who wants to learn. He is partial to plain, simple food that doesn't pretend to be anything but what it is supposed to be: nourishing. The only exception is porridge, and he has a program with 227 different receipts for it.
Terence doesn't like chess or indeed any mind games.
Terence Blackwell and his work are one. He is exactly where he wants to be, doing what he likes doing. He has a thoroughly balanced personality. Through a life time of training, he has acquired long endurance and thick skin when it comes to blows, criticism and failure. "Live, get stronger, fight another day"
He tends to expect almost as much from others as he expects from himself and sometimes needs strong reminders that not everybody has his endurance.

Alicia McKenzie [NPC]
Position: Boatswain (NPC)
Weight: 54 kg
Hair: Blond white
Eyes: Sky blue
Marital Status: Single
Alicia makes up for her height with her personality and strength. She has made it up from enlisted and she is pround of it, but is satisfied for now with her position of Boatswain and will stay there for as long as she will find it interesting and challenging.
Ieurie Gunsan [NPC]
Position: Assistant Chief of Engineering (acting)
Species: Half Human, half Trill
Height: 5 ft 0 in
Weight: 125 lbs
Hair: dark brown
Marks: faint traces of Trill spots
Ieurie was born on the Trill homeworld from a Trill mother and Human father. Upon her mother's untimely death, Ieurie found herself in bitter emotional turmoil over the refusal of the next host to remain in touch with the Gunsan family.
Her father took her back to Earth to finish her education on a world she knew little about. Ieurie instantly adopted Earth for her true home and involved herself heartily in her new life. But when her father remarried soon afterwards, Ieurie chose to exile herself as a boarder in a private school, then as a Starfleet Academy cadet. She has chosen a career and field directly opposite to her very intellectual parents's own interests.
Ieurie dislikes talking about Trill and even hopes to be able one day to convince a Starfleet doctor to help her remove her spots altogether. She loves talking about engineering but when off duty, prefers talking about domestic appliances, entertainment devices and useless gadgets (of which she has a nice collection).
She wears an old watch bought from an antiquarian by an aunt and keeps working on adding to its already numerous functions. She has a dozen of them, some functional and some closer to jewelry, that she will wear in turn depending on the circumstances.

Paolo Verde [NPC]
Position: Head Nurse (NPC)
P.O.B: Earth, Italy
Weight: 78 kg
Hair: Venitian blond
Eyes: Emerald green
Marital Status: Single
History and Education:
Paolo had a rather chaotic academic life, much preferring having a dab at anything that took his fancy at a given moment than actually sitting down to go through regular schooling. Around 18, his tastes settled abruptly for space exploration and medical care. Unable to enter Starfleet Academy with his current records, he spent three years as Nurse Student then Nurse Intern, then a further two years at Starfleet Academy to achieve his goals.
After graduating, he gave a two-year shot at a high profile program of emergency humanitarian actions. Burn out was looming when he was recommended for promotion and offered a position as Head Nurse on the USS Liberty.
Intelligent and fun loving, he demonstrates a lot of energy in his job but has a nonchalant, carefree style off duty.
Good bedside manners and a real interest in his patients. Trained for surgery, field medicine and large scale emergencies. Won't leave Sickbay until the day's work is done. Will never look down on enlisted and orderlies.
Due to his former experience, can get slightly impatient with people to whom a mere headache is the end of the world. Expects the nursing staff to be up to specs at all times.
Exotic Earth foods, music, hanging out with friends
Bad cooking, arrogant physicians who want to teach him his job
Pomme Dubois [NPC]
Weight: 47 kg
Eyes: electric blue
Hair: black, straight
Status: Currently involved with Nick Sharpe
Pomme is small but shapely all around, with a well toned body. Few won't notice her sparkling blue eyes. The origin of her given name (Pomme, apple) is found in a very round face with red cheeks. She likes to have her hair in a "Joan of Ark" cut and a fringe, held with a head band (a whole collection of them) or sometimes in a very short and amusing pony tail. She's a lively person but to her efficiency means being so well organized she never has to run.
Pomme was born and bred in a community settled in the early days of the Federation's exploration of the Alpha Quadrant. As a result, she has a vast family rather than a defined set of parents and relatives. If asked, she would narrow down to three mothers, two fathers, a godfather and seven siblings.
One of her mothers (Safran) is a trained physician and taught Pomme from an early age into medical care matters. Her godfather Storm is a teacher who would often take the children into field trips for weeks on end. Pomme developed a taste for travelling and a lot of curiousity for other worlds and ways of life.
Pomme didn't wish to wait for years to complete medical studies through the Federation curriculum before starting her Starfleet career, which is why she chose Nurse training. Her former experience quickly came to show during her probation internship, then on the medical ship where she was first assigned. Apart from the brief bout on the USS Julius Caesar, the USS Liberty is her second assignment. She left the ship and her position as Head Nurse when Nick Sharpe went on sickleave and has accepted to return as Nurse when he was reassigned to the Liberty.
She holds stress to be the main culprit behind many conditions developed by Starfleet personnel, and gladly spends several evenings a week teaching sophrology classes.
She dislikes gymnasiums and would sooner go trekking or swimming on a holodeck for the whole day than sweat uselessly on equipment. When she's not on a holodeck or teaching sophrology, she's bound to be found around children, playing several kinds of flute or doing some amateur theater work. She also enjoys sewing and will often be welcome by teachers as an assistant in a number of activities.
Pomme's favourite part of the meal is dessert. Her favourite dessert is chocolate in any form and shape. Others are carrot cake or a "Pomme special" made of slices of apples with almonds, vanilla ice cream on the side and hot chocolate on top, with a sprinkle of salted nuts or assorted dry fruit. She likes about any meat as long as it's served grilled (a little charred at the edge even), or exceptionally in a carpaccio ; and raw vegetables in a variety of dressing. She only eats fish is in sushi. Thanks to a fast metabolism, she can eat a lot and thoroughly enjoys her meals.
She enjoys life the way she enjoys food and is not prepared, by education and personal preference, to consider the concept of monogamy. She is however committed to reconsidering her position in the light of her current relationship with Nick Sharpe. The only times this otherwise happy character would be grumpy is when she lacks sleep or has to eat on the run too often.
The GM and several players regrouped in 2006 and can be found at the USS AVALON RPG (update: september 2012)
