Cathmor Greenwell Langston

March 2nd 2325

Earth, Kentucky


Cathmor was used to being in space even though he was born on Earth he had no memory of the place, having been born to a father that worked for Starfleet. His father, Leo was an engineer that passed his love for mechanical work onto his son. Cathmor never knew his mother or what happened to her, which often puzzled the young boy. It didn’t take long for him to become a man though that would follow in his father’s footsteps to start his own life and adventure by applying to Starfleet Academy.

Once graduated he is looking forward to his next adventure aboard his first fleet posting.


Standing at six foot even with dark brown hair, green eyes, and a thin yet muscular build. He has a scar above his left eye from an accident while working on the energy system of a Transport.


Cathmor is a patient man who is slow to anger but when the wrath is on him, he is known to see red sometimes losing himself in the argument. He is very mechanically minded and always looks for the solution to any problem that faces him, be it mechanical or otherwise. He often finds himself muttering “Think of the solution not the problem” to himself under his breath when particularly stumped.

He is friendly by nature and very gregarious, having never met a stranger that he would not talk to. Though times when he wants to be alone come along from time to time when he can be found reading any technical publication that he can find about whatever ship that has caught his fancy at the moment.

He is a very straight forward person hating to mince words when fewer will do better and get the point across. This is something that came especially handy while working in engine rooms with his father.


Early Years

Was born in 2325 to Leo Langston who was a Chief Engineer for the Starfleet, the mother was unknown woman and shortly after Cathmor’s birth in Kentucky he was put onto the ship his father was serving on.

Cathmor learned everything that he could about engineering while he was also forced to learn the things that he found less than interesting like history, or economics. His fondest memories as a child where being with his father, who was the Chief Engineer by the time Cathmor was old enough to remember anything, in the engine room. His father would teach and quiz him over every little detail of the ship that they were on at the time.

Through his time on the ships his father was posted on he loads many friends, always having been a talkative and outgoing child it wasn’t long on any new ship that he would have a gaggle of new friends. Only one person in his life though that he ever bothered to stay in contact with was a girl he met when he was twelve. They had just been stationed on the new ship when he met the girl that was a year younger than him, he and Samantha would get into all sorts of trouble. The three years that they were both on the same ship was the rare years in his life that he did not spend every free moment he had in the engine room. They stayed in contact all the way through him going to the academy, still talking to this day.

Cathmor learned early on not to ask questions about who his birth mother was as every time he brought her up his fathers face would sadden. He was always told “When you’re older boy, I’ll let you know.” He has always hoped that he would learn upon his graduation from Starfleet who she had been and why she had left. Sadly his father died  and accident his junior year at the Academy.


The most important day of Cathmor’s life was an achievement that his father never got to see. Graduation and seeing his father for the first time, both of them in crisp Starfleet uniforms had been a dream of both men. Graduation for him was bitter sweet he was very proud of everything that he had achieved but the only person he truly wanted to share it with was dead, least he was able to celebrate with his childhood friend Samantha. She had made time to come down knowing he would need someone there.
