Personality & Traits

General Overview Richard Sharpe is a very gruff and dominating person, especially to his subordinates. However, he also has a very kind and friendly manner once you get to know him, and him you. Loyal to the extreme to his friends and family, he is not someone you want to get on the wrong side of, or wrong one of his tight knit circle of friends.
Strengths & Weaknesses Richard's main strengths are his ability to view any battlefield with an objective and strategic eye. His loyalty to the men under his command is extremely strong, and he works tirelessly to protect them if he has to send them into harms way. Often this can be to the detriment of himself, pushing himself harder and harder than he would his subordinates.
Ambitions Like with so many, Richard's ambitions are to make a name and a career for himself in the Corps and Starfleet. He's not content to sit back and rest in one place for long.
Hobbies & Interests Richard has been an avid collector of ancient Earth weaponry, mostly firearms. His collection is small, and he's been known to take favorite parts of this collection into combat. An expert marksman with a pistol and a rifle, Sharpe spends his free time either reading, shooting or socializing.

Personal History Richard grew up in humble surroundings, but with the marine corps in his blood. His father, who he'd never actually met, was an enlisted man in the corps. He died shortly before his birth, leaving him to be raised by his mother and two older sisters.

Once he was old enough, he chose to join Starfleet and enrolled in the academy. His initial application was denied, but he tried every year until finally, he was accepted after five attempts. He wasn't one of the best in his class, hovering around the bottom-middle of the pack, but he did excel in basic weapons training. Here he found a passion, as well as finding exceptional gifts in his tactics class.

At the end of his second year, having all but flunked his science, medical and engineering classes, he found himself orientating towards the more martial side of the curriculum. One of his professors suggested he might want to orient his academic studies towards the marine corps, so for his third year, he chose all his electives that would get him into the SFMC program. This he achieved, and was rotated into the SFMC training course for this third and fourth years.

Marine training was hard, but Sharpe persevered with it, moving up the class rankings until he was thirteenth of fifty. In his fourth year, he was selected to join a reserve marine unit for his six-month midshipman cruise. Here he did very well, and after the detachment, returned to the academy to complete his training and graduate.
