Physical Description Powerfully-built with broad shoulders and a deep chest, He has a thick tawny coat, brush-like tail and dark markings around muzzle and ears. His face appears more dog-like than his partner's - until he smiles. His canine teeth were ripped out when he refused to let go of a Gorn he'd sunk them into and after recovering from his other injuries, he opted to have them replaced with duranium implants rather than regrown natural teeth. Very few decide to continue a confrontation after he bares them in warning.


Other Family cousin: Morwen Haldane

Personality & Traits

General Overview Stoic, courageous, and extremely tenacious. He can be relied on to remain steady and determined under pressure and is an excellent marksman. Off-duty he is the more laid back of the pair and relates easily to members of other species.

One of a hunting pair of Kainans, sworn companions who will die before they will betray or abandon each other. The two are cousins who have shared a bond since early childhood and are so close that they sometimes appear to have a sort of private telepathy. While nothing can match their devotion to each other, the fierce loyalty characteristic of their race extends to the fellow Marines they regard as pack.
Strengths & Weaknesses Unusually high pain threshold but will not give in to it even well beyond that limit. ("A Kainan does not scream _in_ pain; only _at_ pain.")

Specialties: Tracking and surveillance, hand-to-hand and markmanship, hostage rescue

He has a tendency to be what humans call a 'hound' in the sense of being a player when it comes to females (but endures his cousin's teasing with good humor when he gets shot down)
Hobbies & Interests Dalraw (Kainan grappling), Mok'bara, Vargstig, Shorinji Kempo, marksmanship

likes to sing, but few non-Kainans find his voice pleasant
Languages Kainan, Standard, Klingon
