Colonel Aidan Thornton
Aidan has a full head of dark brown/red hair due to his Irish heritage. There is very little on him that is excess and he works hard in the gym to keep toned. His skin is tan, getting darker when he stays in the field.
Aidan grew up in upstate NY on an apple farm. Not content with that pastoral life, he joined the Corps at 18 against his parent’s wishes. During the first year, he met and fell in love with Kice Mekayla, where she was quickly pregnant. Setting himself apart in the first few skirmishes he rose to the rank of E-4 when he was offered and opportunity to go back and commit to OCS in Starfleet academy to earn his commission.
In the years that followed, he and Mekayla grew apart mostly due to his long tours and constant call ups to put out the next fire blooming on the horizon. Due one long drunken brawl, Aidan was dropped from Major to First Lieutenant. Working hard to put the past behind him, and finding his particular talents of need, he was again promoted to Captain and sent to his next duty station.
