Personality & Traits

General Overview Duty is the most important aspect of life to Adam. He is often serious, but is accepting of others. Adam is more likely to spend time with a small group of friends than a huge crowd, although he does enjoy a considerable amount of alone time. Adam is slow to anger and quiet once he is angry, he is not a man known to yell so if he gets to that point people tend to take notice. Attention to detail is extremely important to Adam, one would be hard pressed to find anything out of place in his quarters. He typically knows exactly the state he left any room that he is responsible for.
Strengths & Weaknesses Loyalty is both a strength and a weakness in a high enough amount, Adam has found it hard to cope with betrayal or even failure on the part of his team mates. He is steadfast and hard working, always willing to put extra time in when it is needed. Because he is so hard working, Adam is often too critical of others, expecting them to go above and beyond the bounds of duty to complete a task. If Adam is not being utilized in a manner he sees fit it is easy for him to feel slighted, though he would rarely if ever voice that opinion. His hours of training and studying make him a fierce tactition, and competitor. Taking input from others is a learned skill for Adam, one that he hopes he is becoming better at.
Ambitions The marine corps is the only life Adam knows. His ambitions lie not with promotions but with his duty, he always wants to be the one standing between a threat and starfleet.
Hobbies & Interests Adam Loves any activity that can levy a personal challenge to him. He prefers Thai Boxing, krav maga, or hiking to name a few. When he is not enjoying physical activity Adam prefers to listen to jazz music or read murder mysteries, sometimes military history.

Personal History Adam is the son of a famous federation ambassador and diplomat. Being a single parent and diplomat Adam spent much of his childhood shuffled around from ships and star bases to different world's across the galaxy. As a teenager Adam became bitter towards his father, thinking of all the people he had to leave behind over and over again. Left alone one night (there were many nights alone, Adam's father often worked late) Adam was catching up on some recent news when he stumbled across a recruitment advertisement for the starfleet marine corps. He saw images of a tight knit family helping each other to cross a chasm in the earth, Adam ached for that kind of comradere. To accomplish something difficult, and to join a group of people that he could really count on. Call it desperation or adolescent rebellion, Adam enlisted the next day. That was 8 years ago now, Adam denies any relation to the illustrious ambassador Connolly, afterall he couldn't let the name do him any favours. Two years
after graduating from the academy Adam's squad was tasked to a hostage situation on earth. It did not end well, many marines died trying to save the hostages. Since then Adam has become increasingly protective of starfleet and starfleet personnel. He has spoken to his father sporadically over the years, but the two men are extremely different people now, and Adam has found a new family to rely on.
Service Record Adam spent the first few years of his career stationed on earth, which he found boring yet acceptable. Adam participated in trying to diffuse a hostage situation while on earth that did not end well; this situation has gained a little notoriety among military minds as an absolute disaster. Adam requested reassignment to other worlds and it was granted, he was shuffled on everything from escort detail to training programs.
