EARLY HISTORY

Henry David Elrod grew up in a chaotic home. His father, Carl Elrod (founder or Elrod Technologies), was caught cheating on his wife Tamera Elrod, with a younger woman (Crystine Surrat) who bore him a son, Phineas, who was already 15 by the time of the infamous discovery. Carl divorced his mother and married Crystine. And adopted Phineas.

When Hank was 15, his father and older brother (Jeff) were killed while en-route to Luna. Though it was listed as shuttle accident, Henry has always been suspicious.

He was immediately sent to live with his mother and paternal grand father David Gentry, in Marcus Iowa, North American Continent, Earth. All of the family holdings were liquidated, and Crystine and her son moved to Paris. Since his father’s will had been changed (just before his death), Hank received nothing.

During his last couple years with his mothers family, Hank was regaled with stories of Starfleet by his grandfather, David, who was a long retired starship captain. Also, the whole family in Marcus talked proudly of his uncle Frank, the Starfleet Marine.

Henry Elrod Joined Starfleet.
