Personality & Traits

General Overview Asher is generally outgoing, gets along and works well with others. He understands the need for rules and boundaries although will sometimes go beyond what is asked of him even though this has caused a few issues in his career. Having grown up on many small ships he has a fear of open spaces although he loves to be in crowded rooms as long as the ceilings aren’t too high. He’s very social and enjoys catching up with family and friends as well as making new friends. He rarely likes to be alone and will be found where there is background noise.
Hobbies & Interests Likes to build models of ancient airplanes.
Love's folk music.

Personal History Asher (or Ash as he is known by his mother) was born planetside but didn’t remain there for long. The only child of Joyce and Walter Davis he traveled the stars with his mother’s family after his father disappearance. Asher grew up believing that his father had abandoned the family while his mother believes otherwise. It was a great source of tension between the two of them who otherwise had a good relationship.

His mother’s family moved from place to place in a sort of merchant caravan finding work where they could, selling their own goods and growing their own food on their many run down ships. It was here that Asher learned how to fix engines, a trade that served him well over the years.

Asher’s maternal grandmother Ophelia Bright ran the caravan. As the so called matriarch she was ultimately in charge of where they went and what business went on. Each ship contained a captain who reported to her, three of the captains were her own daughters including Asher’s mom Joyce. Asher spent his time between ships working where needed but his favorite thing was to improve the engines when the captains would let him.

Content to remain where he was it was at his mother’s urging that he finally left the caravan to explore his own options in life. Although his mother wants grandchildren Asher has no interest in settling down until he is entirely certain that he can spend the rest of his life with this person. He does not want his children to suffer from a broken family like he believes he suffered without the presence of his father.

Upon leaving the caravan he found work in various places doing odd jobs when he was approached by a freighter captain who watched him repair a gravimetric field displacement manifold in a few minutes using the tools and parts he happened to have on hand. He was then able to find work by word of mouth in the same circles until ultimately applying for Starfleet at an older age than most cadets.
