Appearance

  • Build: Average
  • Hair: Brown, short

Personality


Hobbies

  • Climbing: Though Caedan could not be accused of being sporty, he does nonetheless enjoying climbing as a hobby. He would one day like to climb an eight-thousander, but for the time being he is restricted to simulations in the holodecks, and climbs that do not require any acclimatisation while on shore leave.
  • Baking: Caedan often baked with his grandparents as a child, and has continued that hobby into adulthood. Every year, he bakes along with the Galactic Bake Off, something his colleagues have come to greatly anticipate.

Relationships


Friends

Name Relationship Description
JoMarshall.jpg

Jocelyn Marshall
Sister from a Human Mister
Meeting when they both worked in the Operations department of the Gorkon, Caedan and Jo Marshall quickly discovered they have a shared love for raucous nights out. Particularly on shore leave, they can often be found hitting the bars and encouraging one another to drink far, far too much. She is one of his best friends and most favourite people, and one of the few people he's happy to confide in when he feels like opening up.

Valesha Sienelis
Close Friend
Caedan met Valesha when the Romulan scientist cut a lonely figure at an awards ceremony. Despite her sharp tongue, he warmed to her and her sly, often dark sense of humour, and the two became firm friends. He's often aware that there's a lot more bubbling under the surface than she cares to give away, and he has made a concerted effort to try and help alleviate her loneliness by introducing her to some of his wider circle. After his life-threatening injury during Lladre's capture of the Gorkon, she was one of the people who visited him in sickbay, confessing how important he was to her.


Her abrupt arrest and flight from justice has left him filled with doubt and embarrassment, embarrassed that he as a telepath he missed her treachery, and miserable that he has lost one of his closest friends.

Erin Reynolds
Friend
Erin and Caedan became friends while serving aboard the Gorkon Over There. The hybrid woman particularly endeared herself to him when she spent the last of her personal replicator rations to bring him a swuit stick on a day he was feeling particularly low. Since then, they've grown into friends, and he has even managed to convince her to accompany him on the odd climbing trip.

Ayiana Sevo
Burgeoning Friend
Until recently, Caedan and Ayiana were little more than friendly co-workers, not often working together or sharing many interests. The seeds of friendship were planted when the pair shared some drinks and a heartfelt conversation about love and life during shore leave on Deluvia IV.

Colleagues

Name Relationship Description
Gorkon-ChrisJohns.jpg
Chris Johns
Departmental Colleagues
Two individuals with an affable, generous disposition, Caedan and Chris have always worked easily and well together. Chris is easily one of his favourites — something the Rodulan tries not to make too obvious — and he harbours a hope that the Petty Officer will change his mind about leaving the Gorkon and stay aboard when the time comes for him to re-enlist.
Tasha-MacFarlane.png
Tasha MacFarlane
Fellow Department Chief
Trained as an engineer, Caedan appreciates Tasha's skills and ingenuity in her chosen profession, though he harbours concerns over her ability to effectively lead a department. While definitely the playful sort himself, he does occasionally find himself frustrated by the Chief Engineer's childish demeanour, particularly when she deploys it at inappropriate times or in fits of rage.
