Lieutenant JG B. Hightower
Name B. Calvert Hightower NP
Position Head Nurse
Rank Lieutenant JG
|Height||6'3'' | 193 cm|
|Weight||276 lbs | 125 kg|
|Hair Color||Reddish Brown|
|Physical Description||A tall intimidating barrel chested mass of a man, this behemoth is practically a solid display of heavyweight muscle. What he lacks in agility at being well over six feet in height and close to 300 pounds, he makes up for in brawn. Calvert Hightower is a former enlisted security guard, previously working his way up to being Master-at-arms before going back to the Academy and changing his track to medical, completing nursing school.
He has had dozens of injuries over the years and his body has taken a beating. Unquestionably strong with great upper body strength, Cal is definitely someone you want in a bar fight or street brawl. If not for the facts he can pummel people, then for the fact he can provide medical aid to whomever requires it.
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Though not quite the bruting giant that people often expect him to be, Calvert is not always the warmest soul in a room. His bedside manner is decent and he does care about the well being of his patients. However, he is not always engaging or very talkative unless the person finds the right topic(s). He's a semi-extroverted man who has devoted over twenty years of service to Starfleet, but is still rather new to the field of medicine.
A people hater and animal lover at first, Calvert has come to be more tolerant of people, though he still prefers the company of pets and other animals before that of people. He is very devoted to Starfleet and to making a difference. If there's a task ahead of him, we will plow through whatever obstacles may stand in his way. His most negative trait is by far his stubbornness which leads him to have issues making friends.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
▪ Advanced Weapons Training
▪ Hazard Team experience
▪ Battlefield Medicine
▪ Pig headed stubbornness
▪ Risk taker
|Ambitions||B. Calvert Hightower used to live on the other side of life in Starfleet. He enlisted in Starfleet as soon as he was of legal age to do so and spent several years as grunt in the Security Department as guard. He would climb up in rank and position, earning his certification in a multitude of weapons and eventually holding the position of Master-at-Arms until walking away from that life.
After loosing too many of his friends and men, Calvert left the Security Department behind and sought to go back to school. He had passed up the opportunity for Officer Candidate School in the past, but ultimately seized the opportunity the next time it was brought his way. This meant going to Starfleet Academy in a specialized program, though he picked Medical studies rather than remaining on the Security & Tactical track.
His ambitions now that he has spent a few years in medical as a nurse and most recently having completed his certifications to become a Nurse Practitioner is to continue serving Starfleet in his new capacity. As Head Nurse aboard the USS Tornado, he hopes to be able to expand upon his medical knowledge and shadow the physicians in hopes of one day perhaps becoming a medical doctor himself.
|Hobbies & Interests||His hobbies and interest are often tied with working with his hands. He quite enjoys this that require great concentration and patience, but also involve getting his hands dirty.
