Kylian can be easy. He’s easily tricked if the story is good enough and he can be a little too trusting. He’s gullible. He often gives people the benefit of the doubt which can be both good and bad.
He does suffer from Claustrophobia (fear of tight spaces) as well as Acrophobia (fear of heights) both are rather acute and his fear of heights is severe, but it only applies to land and not space.
|Ambitions||Kylian’s number one ambition is to be a Chief Medical Officer with his own sick bay to run, but his current ambitions entail surviving Residency.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Kylian likes to stay fit so he spends quite a bit of his free time working out. He knows a variety of disciplines, due to his studies. Other species are not just his speciality for his work though, they are very much his obsession. He’s fascinated with the marriage, death and mating rituals of other species. When Kylian is not working, studying or trying to stay physically fit, he spends his time reading and collecting data on all sorts of other species.
He’s also managed to learn quite a bit of a few other languages in the process. He can speak almost fluent Andorian and Vulcan.
|Personal History||Kylian was born in Toledo, Ohio in 2225 to Sharon and Conrad Linwood. He was raised in an odd household. Both of his parents were members of Starfleet. His mother Sharon served aboard an Aryabhatta class as a Science officer and his father aboard a Kestrel class as a helmsman. Kylian was actually born aboard a starship, the U.S.S. Maury. His father was on assignment on the U.S.S. Warhawk dealing with smugglers and the potential threat of war in the A Jej system. His mother’s more exploratory assignment allowed him to stay on board with her for his first few years before he was sent to boarding schools on Earth with his Paternal Grandmother looking after him when his parents weren’t available.
When he was eighteen he entered Starfleet Academy. There really wasn’t any other option considering his family and background. The fact that his Grandmother was an Admiral put a little bit of a damper on Kylian’s Starfleet career, with many people thinking that he got into the Academy because of who his Grandmother was and not on his own merit. While at the Academy Kylian found that he had a great love and fascination with other species and quickly found himself headed for a medical career. His parents were very proud.
Kylian spent four years at Starfleet Academy before moving on to Starfleet Medical. He was in the top 90th percentile of his class. Not valedictorian, but he definitely didn’t receive bad marks either. He was a student that his professors adored though. He was never afraid to argue or challenge, but he was always able to do that and keep a cool head. He made discussions much more interesting for his professors as well as his fellow students. However, his Grandmother’s position continued to overshadow him and often other students would give him a hard time and claim special treatment, when the reasons for his treatment were that he deserved it and worked hard. Kylian, himself, often wished he could disassociate from his family, but someone always recognized his name.
When he graduated from Starfleet Medical his first internship was spent on Earth. He was disappointed to not be assigned to a ship right out of the Academy, but once again, his family name actually created more problems than it solved. To avoid looking like favoritism he was assigned Earth-side and had to wait for a position on a ship to open up for him. After his internship was over there was nothing left to do but wait for assignment and in the interim Kylian decided to go ahead with the two year command training program.
