Ryder, as he prefers to be addressed has had a colorful career serving mostly aboard the USS Fracture a Sutherland class ship, where he spent over half a decade conducting scientific studies near Ferengi Alliance space, Patroling the Neutral zone and even spending several months in the Mirror Universe the fractures most famous mission and Ryders most disturbing memory.

History

General Overview
Ryder is a well-mannered individual, being a half Betazoid he has always had an advantage over his peers, being able to feel emotions and able to talk to other telepaths with the use of his thought. He is a very kinetic person finding comfort in doing things rather than reading about them which during his studies lead to frustration much preferring the more physical activities such as Phaser Training, Piloting and Away team Scenarios. He particularly enjoyed the Kobayashi Maru training simulator.

Over the years he has gained a wealth of knowledge not just in his own field of security but also Science, Medical and Command. Ryder found out very quickly and through no fault of his own that he was a very capable combat medical and natural born leader being able to make quick, decisive decision in stressful situations.

With most of his family serving or have served in Starfleet Ryder is Proud of his heritage and plans to live up to his fullest potential.

Strengths & Weaknesses
Ryder has an endless list of strengths and weaknesses which as the years go by are forever changing. He is at first and foremost a key strategist, being able to develop plans quickly in any given situation. He is also a natural born leader with the knowledge and selfless commitment to earn the respect of his fellow crewman willing to put others needs before his own to accomplish his goals.

He is physical in his actions and can often outperform his peer groups, he enjoys hand to hand combat but is proficient with a phaser and phaser rifles. Ryder does also have above average experience using ships weapons and tactical systems.

Despite his strengths with any normal person come their weaknesses and Ryder has an equally long list. His passion and selfless commitment have seemed himself in danger of death one too many times not knowing went to give up. He can be at times to quick anger and therefore quick to act.

Despite these Ryder carries with him a very strict set of principles, Courage to face his fears, Discipline even in the hardest of situations, respect for others a Starfleet essential, integrity to omit to his own mistakes and not to be dishonest, Loyalty to his Drew, Captain, and Starfleet and finally Selfless commitment, willing to put others needs before his in any situation.

Ambitions
Growing up Ryder could only ever hear about the goings on during the Dominion war, with this and his families proud Starfleet heritage he has always wanted to command his own starship.

Hobbies & Interests
He has shown to share affection and interest towards Sports such as Football, Rugby, Fishing, Hockey and Orbital Diving but sports aren’t the only things that interest him another few things that interest him are music and acting both of these are hobbies in which he loves, he’s also obsessed with reading books and especially those with twists and a lot of action…

Branching off from each different subject Ryder prefers and has a tendency with Scuba diving and all though its not the most thrilling and probably the most unusual for someone of his size, he loves to grab a mask and oxy tank before taking a dive into the deep blue. This is mainly because of his willingness to learn new things and see whats out there to other. Furthermore, to his unusual favorable sport, he loves to read in his own time he often gets lost in a good action novel. With or without pictures he need not care he could always read and see the plot and the action between the lines.

Personal History
Aboard the USS Venture, the year is 2364 and the world has introduced a beautiful Black haired, green-eyed, half human and half Betazoid baby. Ryder Jameson son of Lucus and Rachael took his first breaths of artificially created oxygen somewhere near the neutral zone. Both his parents served in Starfleet one as a Security officer and one a Counsellor aboard the ship and as if the stars aligned and destiny was an accepted fate so should Ryder.

Ryder spent most of his life in space and aboard the USS Venture a Galaxy-class starship patrolling the neutral zone, the border between Federation and Romulan space. It was very early on that he began studies of the stars and of the federation though found it hard at times to concentrate at first his teaches thought he was a troublemaker, but as the years went by Ryder realised he prefered to do things than hear or read about them and once he found out his style of learning he began to excel in his studies.

At the age of 10, he and his parents moved to Starbase 1 where his parents decided after a particularly hairy ION storm that raising a child so far from the safe Haven of Earth, was a dangerous one. Here Ryder continued to thrive and continued to progress through his education favoring physical activities, though he did also enjoy both science and maths each having relevance to his future career in Starfleet. It also wasn’t long before Ryder’s parents saw the natural leader in their son, already captain of the schools Parrises Squares team and a house captain.

To finish his last two years in normal education before moving onto Starfleet Academy Ryder moved to Earth with his mother at the age of 14 and attended Pennington School which was located New Zealand here Ryder developed his Love for Rugby following the ‘all blacks’ the national team’s history from the 21st century. Ryder studied Science, Physical Education, Mathematics and also gaining extras in Astrometry.

Ryder studied Science, Physical Education, Mathematics and also gaining extras in Astrometry.

Ryder was accepted and began attending Starfleet Academy, San Fransisco in the year 2382. During his first year, Ryder performed well in Tactics, Physics and Mathematics within in the core curriculum but also took a Major in intelligence under Command School and a minor in Survival classified under Security and tactical. As well as his core and extracurricular studies Ryder also was a member of the Rugby and Parrises Squares team.

His first and the second year went without to much trouble, he studied hard and played even harder which at times landed him in trouble. Once he had passed his Minor and most Core curriculums Ryder began to expand his studies into Starfleet Security, Starship Security Procedures, Security Technology and Starfleet Security Codes & Data Access.

During his final two years, Ryder found it increasingly challenging. Attempting the Kobayashi Maru combat simulator over ten times mostly because he enjoyed the thrill of it and taking part in several cadet-led combat simulation in space and in the holodeck. By the time his four years were up Ryder was now an Ensign and assigned to the USS Fracture, a Sutherland Class starship as one of the ships Security Officers.

The USS Fracture was predominantly a research vessel whose mission was mostly spent around the Ferengi Alliance Space cataloging already explored systems with more advanced scientific equipment. These 2 years were long and mostly uneventful despite this Ryder learned a great deal scientifically as well as bonding with many of the ship’s crew adding to his ever-increasing knowledge.

The Fracture halfway during its third year was pulled into a subspace fracture (Ironic huh?) which flung them into the Mirror Universe. The crew would spend four months on the run from both the Terran Empire and the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. They took over 25% casualties and their ship was limping through space as they desperately tried to return home. Finally, after four months of running and intense fighting, the crew managed to recreate the phenomenon that brought them to the universe and returned back to the normal universe.

The Fracture was finally recovered and towed back to Starbase 54. It was from here Ryder returned too Sol and was assigned to Starbase 1 for a further two years as a Security Officer often taking regular trips to Starfleet Academy where he studied Crises Negotiation Tactics and Security Minor in which he had to learn additional credits as followed, Armory an Introduction to Weapons, Diplomacy and Hostile Species, Engineering, Deflectors, Weapons and Security Systems, Psychology in Hostilities, Tactics with Combat, Martial Arts, Anbo-Jytsu and Federation Standard, Tactics with Combat, Phasers and Photon Torpedos with his previous education and experience, Ryder, after 3 years at Starbase 1 (extending to qualify for Major) achived Secuirty Major and Science Minor.

Ryder would now spend the next two years aboard the newly refurbished USS Fracture which had now be refitted as a combat vessel and sent to the Neutral zone to replace his parents ship the USS Venture. Over the two years the Fracture would face ION Storms, Romulan Skirmishes and discover new life forms however compared to the four months they spent in the Mirror Universe nothing seemed to phase him.

Once their tour of duty was complete Ryder asked for reassignment to the USS Cavalry where he has just arrived…
