Academy Information

Elliott had entered the Academy knowing that he wanted to be a diplomat. There were not a lot of Diplomatic cadets in his year and he found himself in a position of being a bit of an outsider. Elliott discovered that he had a penchant for language and culture. He minored in Ancient Earth History. Although he did not have many close friends  Elliott found that he was able to mix with many different types of people. He got the name of "Morpho" from those who knew him best. He always seemed to know how to find a way to deescalate difficult situations.

Elliott did well at the Academy but he was more of an original thinker and often found himself on the other side of many of the lecturers.  In time he won the respect of his professors because he could defend his position with  honesty and integrity. His attention to details and semi-photographic memory helped him a great deal in his studies.


Background Information

Elliott is the oldest child in a family of 6. His mother was a school teacher and his father a lawyer on Earth.  His father died when Elliot was 13 and he took over the leadership of the family. When he was 19 he entered the Academy and left the family's matter in the hands of his next oldest sister.  She has contacted him every week since to let him know how the family is. He is devoted to his family and they are a major focal point of his life. His youngest brother  Eric has just entered the Academy's Engineering Department specializing in structural engineering.

He is quiet and thoughtful but is also charming and possesses a keen skill at observing the cultural and linguistic characteristics of those he meets. He enjoys  archery and fencing and often uses the Holodeck for practicing.  Elliott is a very spiritual individual and finds the religious beliefs of cultures fascinating. He tries to live his life by what some has called an unbelievably high standard of ethics.
