Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Caleb puts on a show of having his act together. On the surface he appears to have things under control and has adjusted to the deaths of his family members, but under the surface, he is angry and uncertain.
He is confident in his sexuality, but this was not always the case. He is loyal to and protective of those he loves. He has a strong sense of justice, though he doesn't always color inside the lines. He is brave, sometimes foolhardy and has a quick temper and quicker wit. Both of which sometimes get him into trouble.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Caleb, while possessing an above intelligence, is not always the smartest man in the room, but he knows it. He is however highly intuitive and is good at reading people. He has no telepathic ability, can't sense emotions or read thoughts, but he does have an uncanny, though not foolproof, ability to tell when someone is lying to him. If he were a 21st Century Terran he would be described as a mentalist, or at least an aspiring one.
He has a strong sense of justice, which can border on vengeance
Because of the influence of his mother, and perhaps some natural tendencies he has used his looks and charm on more than one occasion to seduce information out of someone rather than using harsh interrogation techniques.
Therefore he has trouble doing what he most wants to do find a man that he can make a commitment to and raise a family with.
He also suffers from some slight claustrophobia
|Ambitions||Find justice for his family, find a soulmate, raise a family, at some point he would like to teach at the Academy.
He has not desire to be the Captain of his own ship, he is happy with being the Chief of Intel. About his only real desire is to some day serve on a larger ship, with more responsibility.
|Hobbies & Interests||He enjoys reading mystery novels from across the galaxy, chess, Eighteenth Century English Literature (he owns two original second edition Charles Dickens's works: Bleak House and A Tale Of Two Cities. He would like to collect more. He also enjoys holodeck reenactments where he is put into a situation where he has to read a person to determine their actions, or where doesn't know the ending. He finds it strengthens his abilities when put into real life situations.
|Personal History||Caleb was born in Madrid Spain. His father, who was human, was a physics professor at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid,his mother Erina along with her twin sister Ulani was a Starfleet Intelligence officer. They met when Erina was taking a class from Daniel. What both thought would be a brief, but torrid affair quickly grew into a romantic relationship and ultimately they were married.
The marriage flamed out when Caleb and his twin brother Aaron were five( a year after the birth of their sister Rachel ). This was due partially because of Daniel's devotion to, some would say marriage to his job and his students at the expense of his family, and his mother being gone frequently in space. The fact that she used her Elasian abilities to be a better Intel officer had a great deal to do with it as well. Neither parent was on track to win parent of they year.
He moved to England with his dad, who became a professor at Oxford at age seven and was put in a boarding school.
Life at boarding school was difficult for the young boy due to the language barrier that first existed between him and his school mates. However, with time he learned how to speak English much better and soon became popular among his friends. He had never been interested in girls and attending an all male boarding school proved difficult for the young boy. With all of his friends being heterosexual he gradually became ostracized as different and as time went on became increasingly shy and withdrawn. When he was sixteen he met a brand new young teacher by the name of Shane Williamson. Caleb became entranced with the older man, following his mother's footsteps and it was no secret that Shane was openly gay. After class one day, Caleb stayed behind and began chatting to Shane. He was keen to get to know someone with the same sexuality as him and soon the friendship became something more as Shane took the young sixteen year old to his bed, becoming his first lover. The pair fell in love even though their affair was forbidden, the twenty four year old trying hard to keep their romance secret. But like all secrets, the pair were finally outed resulting in Shane losing his job and Caleb to be expelled from school. Being a traditional family, at last on Daniel's side, they were ashamed of him sending him to counseling to try and rid him of his ‘obsession’ as they called it.
Hating the way he was being treated, and with the full blessing of his mother, Caleb finished his high school education and thanks to excellent grades and a high IQ was accepted into Starfleet Academy. His intention was to get as far away from his family as he could and what better way than to go into outer space.
His cousin Dylan was attending about the same time, though he was two years ahead of him and because of Dylan's example, Caleb chose to go into Intel. He majored in criminal profiling and found he had a natural talent for undercover work. He was also fascinated, perhaps the only trait he picked up from the father he was estranged from with the Mirror Universe(s) and temporal distortions and anomalies.
From a strictly non academic standpoint. Caleb frequented a lot of bars and slept with more than his fair share of men, and even an occasional woman.
He used seduction in the field when he thought it would advance his mission (and sometimes just for fun)
Just over a year ago Caleb was back in London for his birthday and a party to celebrate his being promoted to full Lieutenant. A are occurrence took place in London. His entire immediate family, including his estranged parents were there together. They were all to meet at a pub in London.
However Caleb was held up when he helped a stranded couple, who's hover car had broken down(not being mechanical Caleb wasn't able to help them fix it, but he did let them use his PAaD ton contact their friends.
The pub where his family, except for his younger brother, was waiting for him blew up.
At first Starfleet thought that Caleb could have been involved, especially since the couple he claimed to have helped were never found to back up his story. But it was quickly determined that his father had been working on a portal device that opened up a "window" between the Federation and Mirror Universe and that this was the likely cause; either someone who didn't want the device in anyone's hands or they didn't want it in Starfleet's hands (a prototype of the device was missing from the safe in Daniel's apartment
