Generally reliable, Dax meets most expectations although often with a dash of personal flair. Not one to cause trouble, Dax assumes the role of peacemaker in most disputes, but he would generally prefer to avoid them altogether.

Ambitions See Weaknesses. Dax just wants to do his job, win the girl, and go home happy. Maybe not even in that order.
Hobbies & Interests Dax is a connoisseur of fine (nonalcoholic) spirits and cigars and games of strategy. He’s often found playing Sudoku between tasks while on duty. Despite the surfer culture of his hometown of New Kokomo City, Dax does not care much for watersports.

Personal History Born on Pacifica, Dax never knew any real discomfort until he entered Starfleet. His father and mother met aboard the SS Festival Fiesta, a luxury cruise liner which employed them both. A whirlwind romance led to Dax’s older brother, Trevor, being conceived. The two individuals who could not be more dissimilar got married and had four children altogether, Dax being the second. Not long before his sister was born, however, Dax’s father Trenton was lost at sea during an underwater repair which turned fatal. Their mother soon fell to alcoholism, leaving little room for parenting between her addiction and her profession. Left to themselves, with most of them never knowing their father, Dax and his siblings lived the stereotypical carefree life of Pacifica due to their status as latchkey children. They were free to study or tinker or screw around as they pleased, and their diverse outcomes in life certainly reflect the independence of their youth.

Year in and year out spent in the tropical resort paradise that was rivaled only by the decadence of Risa made Dax unfocused in Starfleet during his cadet years. He initially entered the Flight Control track due to his high simulator scores. Bored with the thought of being tied to a helm for the rest of his life, Dax wanted to stretch his legs a bit and wound up in Engineering.

Graduating as an Engineer, Dax did a little bit of everything: environmental control, hull repair, EPS maintenance, communications optimization, and even cross-trained with Security in tactical sensor and electronic warfare protocols.
His quiet, carefree approach to life saw him rise through the ranks since nobody had much negative to say about him.
