Kolen has never been a loner in life. He’s always had friends, and very rarely encountered any friction with anyone. He is likeable and approachable, never shirking his pastoral responsibilities towards crew. He doesn’t mind if people refer to him as “Doc” while on duty, as that was his nickname during his medical training. He finds it rather unusual if people don’t refer to him as “Doc” as he has grown so accustomed to it.
