History

James Edward Hood was born in the city of New Orleans as the son of a Starfleet officer and human doctor. He was brought up in the lively city under his mothers care for four years until his father graduated Starfleet Academy. Afterwards they were bound for space, living aboard the many vessels his father would go to serve on. This was not a first for the Hood family however. Indeed, the Hood family had a long history of naval officers in human history. Dating all the way back to Earth’s Age of Sail the Hood’s have served into the various navies of the world and later in space under the Federation’s Starfleet. His father was simply following his grandfather and the one’s before him. The same tradition young James would come to follow.

His father instilled in him the honor, respect and loyalty expected of a officer and James followed his fathers teachings religiously. The man was a mentor and hero in his young sons eyes. They would move from ship to ship, traveling all across the Beta and Alpha quadrants as they learned and experienced new things. James was able to see new aliens, cultures and even conflict up close. It melded him and taught him to be elegant in his dealings with others but also cautious and guarded. His etiquette would impress many as would his intelligence and care for those around him. He had a sister a few years younger than himself. Her name was Anna and James cared for her like an older brother should.

When he came of age James departed his fathers ship, now a Captain of his own vessel, and was bound for San Francisco, Earth. At first, he took to the academy with an almost reckless regard. His fathers teachings falling away as he partied and enjoyed himself without the restrictions of a starship stopping him. But after his father passed something changed in him. He became determined and diligent and was keen in his studies and intent on making his father proud. His sister joined up after him in his third year.

Now at the age of 22, James is a recently promoted Ensign and has been given his first chance after graduation. To serve as a Command Ensign aboard the USS Columbia. He did not miss a beat in accepting the offer and is making plans to join his new crew before they set out on their next mission. He looks forward to meeting and serving alongside them. Especially his new Captain seeing as he will be held to an additional set of expectations and excellence in his new station. He just hopes he can live up to his fathers name.
