Lieutenant Commander Alexander 'Alex' Brodie, a Human, is a Starfleet officer currently assigned to the Duronis II Embassy & USS Thor - serving as Chief Counsellor.



Stuart Brodie

Father - (B: 231502.04 – D. 235804.10) (Age: 43) – Stuart Brodie was a civil engineer specialising in urban power distribution. Stuart was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and spent most of his life living close to the relay stations that supplied the starship drydocks. Stuart was a perfectionist in his work and highly focused – which was trait he carried into her personal life. This was not to say he was a poor parent or unkind partner, quite the opposite. He channelled this into making sure that his wife and children were taken care of and ensured they had everything they required. While he often spent time away working he always made the effort to speak to his family and, when he wasn’t away, spent as much time with his children as possible.

Tragically, Stuart was killed in an industrial accident in 2358 while conducting a site inspection at a new power facility on Mimas.

Lorna Brodie

Mother – (B. 231107.14 – D. 236008.23) (Age: 49) – Lorna Brodie (Neé Ross) was an artist, following in the geometric abstraction school. Lorna met Stuart when she was commissioned to produce a series of artworks for an exhibition to launch a new colonization project. She was invited to attend as a result and connected with Stuart over their joint appreciation of the artistry and could be found within architecture.

Once Alexander and Iona were born she stepped back from her work to be a full-time parent. Following Stuart’s death, however, Lorna found herself increasingly struggling to cope brining up her two teenage children while still grieving for her late husband and returning to employment. In 2362, she took her own life following an acute psychological collapse. Brodie and Iona were placed into the care of Lorna’s brother, at his insistence, until they reached the age of eighteen.

Danica Catherine Brodie

Daughter - (B: 237612.13) (Age: 20) – Dani is Alex’s daughter and his only child. Physically Dani takes after her mother but mentally she is definitely her father’s daughter. She is currently training as a dancer and musician after gaining a passion for performance listening to her father play when she was young. She is also a talented singer in the coloratura mezzo-soprano range.

Personal Notes

Personality: Alex is typically cheerful and respectful with a large dose of cynicism and a very fine attention to detail. This has led to some individuals he has worked with thinking that he does not care. In truth, however, it is more of an in built defense mechanism to ensure that he retains a sense of perspective and detachment form his work. Due to the nature of his previous work he is more used to working outside of a traditional chain of command but, out of respect for the organizations he has worked for and with over the years, he tends to play along. The only two exceptions two this are where he feels the safety of his patient may be in danger or during counselling sessions.

Quarters: Brodie occupies general quarters in the embassy grounds, together with accommodation aboard the USS Thor. Generally sparse they contain the usual mundane items such as clothing and minor personal effects. Several PADDs sit on the desk typically history books from various culture as well as psychological, political and legal texts. A family picture sits on his desk, taken at Mount Ruapehu in New Zealand with his then wife and young daughter.

Office: Alex works from an office in the Counselling And Psychological Services (CAPS) unit on the second floor of the Embassy medical Centre. He also has an office aboard the USS Thor. Given the nature of his role, however, he will often attend to matters in person as he feels it helps him establish a better relationship with the individual in question and put them at ease.

Brodie tries to maintain a good level of physical fitness through general exercises in the gym. He counts his more active hobbies as fencing and horse riding. He was also, in his youth, a keen rugby player as a fly-half and acted as a coach for one of the faculty teams during his time at the academy.

He enjoys the taste of whisky and always tries to ensure he has at least one genuine, non-replicated, bottle of single malt available in his quarters – his personal favourites being Lowland region whiskies as a reminder of home.

He enjoys games that involve thought, memory, tactics and bluffs and is particularly fond of poker and liars dice – although his skills at observation, discerning microexpressions and deception detection mean he seldom finds people who are prepared to play him for long...and even more seldom for money. Alex is also an accomplished sleight of hand artist, particularly regarding card magic, which he learnt as a way of keeping his daughter entertained when she was younger.

Brodie counts among his favourite books preferring thrillers and intrigues. He also has a keen interest in history. Alex enjoys classical music, of both earth and off-world cultures, together with theatre and plays the flute, piano and violin. He also has a fondness for landscape art, particularly from nineteenth century Earth, and has several replications of works by John Martin, Alexander Nasmyth, Sebastian Pether and Horatio McCulloch loaded into a holo-image projector in his quarters.
