Personality & Traits

General Overview Danael is a very outgoing, friendly, and compassionate person. Young, and somewhat naïve he still views the world through rose-colored glasses, and tries his best to see the best in people. This makes for a fantastic bedside manner, but it is also a serious flaw, as he has gotten hurt in many ways because of this.

Danael is also a very competent, and confident man, who has taken his training, and his subsequent position very seriously. He considers his posting on a Starfleet vessel to be a matter of pride, and honor, and will do all it takes to ensure that he gives everything he's got to the duties he is assigned.
Strengths & Weaknesses Confident 
Overly Trusting 
Hopeless Romantic 
Ambitions Danael has spent the past four years of his life training to be a nurse, and hopes to eventually move into a more advanced position, either shipboard, or back at the Academy, as a ship's Head Nurse, or even an instructor for Starfleet Medical Academy. 
Hobbies & Interests Besides medical science Danael's favorite interest would have to be sports, with Basketball and Soccer being his two favorites. He also likes old horror movies, music, and studying new cultures, and the accompanying languages, philosophies, and customs.

Personal History Danael was born aboard the USS Selkie, to a couple of career Starfleet officers, Malcolm Stephens, the ship's Tactical Officer, and Anabelle Stephens, the ship's Chief Medical Officer. Upon his birth Anabelle and Malcolm requested a transfer planetside, back on Earth, not wanting to raised their son in space, with all of its myriad dangers. This transfer was approved less than three weeks later, and the couple found themselves settling in to their new life in San Francisco, with Malcolm working on Earth Spacedock as a Tactical Advisor, and Anabelle returning to Starfleet Medical Academy to teach.  

Danael was a mature child, though in some ways also a dreamer, who performed well in school, but tended to be far too trusting of his friends, and acquaintances. Because of this he would have a few run-ins with the authorities, and also nearly have a life-shattering unplanned pregnancy send his life spiraling out of control. It was the second incident, when he was only fifteen, that would in some ways sober Danael up. He finally seemed to wake up from his idyllic fantasy and begin taking an active interest in the very real consequences of his actions. Discussing the options the couple would agree on terminating the pregnancy, as it was only a few weeks along, and going their separate ways.   

This began a period of rapid maturation for Danael, who would come to realize that he had a genuine interest, and knack for the field his mother was in, Medical. A few years later, upon graduation from high school he would sit the entrance exams for Starfleet Medical Academy, and be accepted into the nursing program. Four years later, at the age of 22 he would graduate, with honors, and be given the rank of Ensign. Now, at this crucial junction in his life, he finds himself assigned to the USS Musashi, under the direct supervision of her CMO, Dr. Ezekiel Hill.
