|Crew of USS Ronin
|1st Lieutenant James Odin
1st Lieutenant James Macharius Odin is currently assigned as Marine Squad Leader aboard the USS Ronin.
Odin enjoys history and restoring old spaceships. He has no expertise in mathematics outside of the core requirements from Starfleet and half the time he rather be sleeping in a hole in the dirt than in his quarters on the Starbase. Most classes outside of Starfleet Marines, Tactical, or Security he struggled with, especially alien languages. Loves to have a good time with his friends and sometimes that leads to too much partying which then involves waking up in an unknown place. His military tactics and knowledge are of a slightly different style than that of Starfleet.(If the door is locked..then blow open the door) In the academy it was hard for him to adjust since most of his classmates were fresh, bright, and young idealists while his outlook on the galaxy was of a different tone.

Odin's father was a brilliant computer engineer that had settled on Elysium after a stint as an enlisted man in Starfleet. He had met his mother while readjusting to his new job at the R&D facility of the Reinholdt Consortium. On Elysium he married and raised a family with James being their first son. His mother was a school teacher at the colony's primary school. After high school Odin joined Elysium's Planetary Defense Force. Elysium was technically under the protection of the Federation but a lack of response time and unanswered calls to Starfleet had developed the planet's attitude in a bad light. Since the planet had no Federation bases or Starfleet postings and that the planet was not a vital center of commerce or trade, the Federation had a standoff approach when dealing with such a small planet. After the Dominion War many veterans had settled their for its lucrative re-settlement options. For having such an influx of military men, most trouble never made its way to the planet. The PDF was formed by former Starfleet officers who were on AR-558, a long and bloody ground battle that lasted 105 days. These were the kind of men that had taught Odin the fighting man skills. As a PDF Corporal he was in many small skirmishes dealing with pirate attacks, convoy operations, rescue missions and defense duty of Elysium. After some interesting circumstances Odin, left Elysium to join Starfleet to uphold a promise he made, even though he rather disliked most things about the Federation and Starfleet. But with his honor still standing he will throw himself 100 percent into his now new career field.
