Physical Description Mindo's height and appearance suggest that he is a boy of about 10 years old. At 3'6” he is used to being the shortest officer in the room. He has a very youthful face, much like other Feserians. Though stereotypes cast on the Feserians (through the great Balok) as being bald and creepy, Mindo is from a different continent than Balok, a more northern part of the planet Feseria, “Eloi,” where hair is more common. It should also be noted that Eloi-Feserians do have the pointed ears seen on the other inhabitants on that planet, and also that Eloi-Feserians are almost a foot taller than their neighbors. Like most of his race, Mindo is very androgynous. His young appearance will continue to be present until the day he dies. It is hard to tell a Feserian's age.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Mindo is eccentric, sometimes a bit impulsive. He is also an out-of-the-box thinker, making him a good choice for any crew. His sense of humor is second to none, and his demeanor is almost always bright, and he takes great pride in his work. This is generally an accurate description of a person of his race. The description doesn't stop there, though. And Mindo is no exception to the rest of it...
Strengths & Weaknesses His strengths are that he's very intelligent, innovative, and great with people of any kind. Mindo likes to think he doesn't have any weaknesses. This is a big weakness. At the very least, Mindo is remarkably small and is sometimes mistaken for a child. This is true not only of Feserians from the continent Eloi, but all Feserians. Another weakness is his constantly self-destructing personal life. He really likes alcohol too.
Ambitions While he definitely has the congeniality and drive to be a starship captain (one day), he prefers a quiet spot in the center of town (er, ship) in Engineering, the subject in which he excelled at the Academy. Mindo is pretty much sticking to that. The last time he had ambitions it didn't really go that well.
Hobbies & Interests Mindo will try anything twice, and sometimes even more. He's a lover of art, music, and literature. He usually prefers to spend his time in the officer's lounge (Ten Forward?) socializing and telling stories.

Personal History Mindo grew up on Feseria in the northern continent of Eloi. He has some fond memories of the place, but didn't like it enough to stay. It is hinted sometimes that he was not well-liked, which is very odd for Eloi-Feserians. His true life began while at the Academy. At first heavily disliked by professors, Mindo managed to dodge being kicked out of the Academy after several incidents involving "disruptive personal relations" with some of his peers, as well as accidents and goofs under the influence of Romulan Ale. They still call the charred remains of a tree in the main courtyard "Mindo's Stump," and that story is widely known even after he graduated. It was also the incident that made him wise up and begin to take things like work and classes more seriously if he didn't want to go back to Eloi with the bullying and humiliation and... and, stuff. But never mind that. Eloi has made a name for himself since then as being a likable and dedicated officer for whichever ship he serves.
Service Record My own Player record dates back to about 1997 in the old Tango Fleet franchise. Since then I've been off and on doing these sims, whenever I have the time. I've been on more ships with more characters than I can count. My own ambition in the game is to have fun. I've never wanted to be a CO or even XO. I'm perfectly happy as a supporting character. The positions I have had aboard ships include helm officer, counselor, marine, security officer, bartender, and chief engineer. My favorite positions are counselor and engineer. I normally like being a department head, but I don't care if I'm handed something else. I'm not interested in a science position, and I don't think this character would do well in security or medical, but if you think otherwise than I'll consider it.

As for Mindo's record, I've never used this character in a Star Trek setting before, however I like to think of him as experienced enough to handle big responsibilities. Here is a resume I made for him using fictitious ships and accommodations, in case that's allowed...

USS Tigerclaw - Engineering officer (10 months)

USS Paladin - Assistant Chief Engineer (7 months)

USS Taggert - Assistant Chief Engineer (one year, one month)

USS Rhys - Chief Engineer (one year, eight months-present)

Awarded the Karyo Cluster for excellent service aboard the USS Taggert.

Also awarded the Quarshie badge for his work aboard the Rhys in the Obutu-Panaka nebula.
