When Evan steps into a room, he is not the person to cause attention. However, within his quiet demeanor there is also a kind of self-assurance. He seems very in-touch with himself, is not looking for confirmation and - if in his comfort zone - he is an easygoing and not very demanding colleague to work with. For most people he is a nice person to be around, as you barely even notice him until he speaks up. He adapts to new environments quickly and doesn't mind working alone.
Personality & Quirks
- Even though he works with languages, Evan is more of a listener.
- He is quiet but friendly, thinks a lot before he speaks up.
- Hobbies include reading, running, swimming and shabby Arcade Games in Space Pubs
- Loves nothing more than good pastry, would probably actually kill for a good cookie dough
- Sympathizes very fast, sometimes it's hard for him to keep his loyalties clear - not very inclined to ideologies
- Very sensible to loud sound and big crowds - noise stresses him out
- Left shoulder's a bit stiff ever since a freighter accident when he was 32
- Speaks various languages but isn't really fluent in any of them
Evan was born in 2359 in the area of Boston/MA, Earth. He never met his biological mother, as he was taken into social care and raised by foster parents from the age of two. This never turned out to be a problem - actually, Evan proves an excellent example for the functioning social system of the federation. He lived in the loving home of Sandra and Boris Stirling and also went by the name of Evan Stirling for some periods during his life. He has an older sister who still lives on Earth with her family. However, since their parents have died, they did not see each other a lot.
After finishing school, Evan went into shipping and cargo business in the private sector. He worked on outposts, coordinating the shipping of tools, food and shelter material - sometimes for the federation, sometimes for different parties. He found himself fascinated with space very early on, but never saw himself in the actual fleet.
After the death of his parents he went to work in more isolated outposts for a small but profitable shipping company, continuing to supervise cargo and rations of all sorts for different clients. For his job, he naturally learned a lot of languages, as the private translation devices often weren't as highly evolved as the fleet's. He got used to being on his own a lot of the time, sometimes spending several weeks alone in one outpost, distracting himself merely with books and TV. Due to his constant moving and his wide variety of clients, he worked with a lot of different people, species and parties.
In his mid 30s Evan still hadn't really settled anywhere for more than a few years, and he decided to apply for the academy out of sheer impulse. To his own surprise he got accepted as a cadet and graduated from academy four years later at the age of 40, having deepened his knowledge in languages and communication strategies. He majored in intelligence, minored in com/ops and was assigned to Starbase 118 Ops as an Intelligence Officer.
Friends & Colleagues
Alora was the commanding officer in Evan's academy training. They met up later and shared a dance at his graduation party. He is very fond of her leading style and was more than pleased to receive her invitation to visit Betazed along other friends of hers.
Rustyy was the first colleague to invite Evan along - they soon discovered their shared love for food and enjoyed great conversations. He's the closest Evan has to a friend after his short time on 118 - he loves the engineer's hearty manner and his uncomplicated way to take life.
- Christina Stirling
Sister - Being much older than him, Christina and Evan never had much of a relationship. When he moved out, she already had two kids and lived with her husband. Whenever he visited their parents, he also stopped by, but ever since they died, he missed out on regular visits. Evan feels very guilty about this, but until today, he couldn't get himself to change something about the situation. He would like to meet his niece and nephew though, which he last saw when they were barely teenagers.
