Personality & Traits

General Overview Generally an introvert, Maximilian prefers to keep a socially distanced demeanor when around others, especially in public. He does seek to help others, but will always do so in a distanced manner. In his duties as a Marine, he is generally noted to be a pragmatist. However, despite his relatively cold appearance, he does possess a sense of humor, which can help when trying to break the ice with him when off-duty. Politically speaking, coming from a family with many Starfleet members, he is very enthusiastic about his position and role.
Strengths & Weaknesses Maximilian is an analytical mind, noted to be a pragmatic and creative thinker in tactical situations. He also displays an impressive amount of willpower, a strong moral compass and a keen interest in learning new things.

On the other hand, Maximilian has problems expressing his emotions properly to other people. This and his resulting general seriousness may make him seem cold-hearted towards others, and while it does make him good as a Sergeant it does not help at all in social situations. He also suffers from somewhat of an internal self esteem problem, seeing as he often stood in the shadow of the achievements of his older brother and parents as well. He has slowly tried to work his way out of this, but largely represses it.
Ambitions Maximilians ambitions are largely focused around his role in Starfleet, a side effect of standing in the shadow of what much of his family had achieved by his age. As such, he strives towards an officer position in the Marine via promotion through the ranks, and to make a name for himself in general.
Hobbies & Interests In his free time, Maximilian most often can be found reading about the field he is primarily interested in, that being the history of many Federation species up to their invention of the warp drive. However, he could also be described as "married to his work", and as such can also often be found exercising and going through scenarios alone or with other marines.

Personal History Born on Earth in 2361, Maximilian grew up mostly with his three years older brother and his father, as his mother served long periods of time as a chief tactical officer in the Starfleet. He was noted as an attentive and perceptive pupil, but rarely made lasting contact with his classmates. By the time he finished school, it looked like he could shoot for an officer rank on a ship, while his brother instead chose to become a civilian administrator. However, during the first phases of his officer training, his father perished in a shuttle accident while on a call with him. This threw Maximilian, who had the strongest connection to his father, severly off course, and he did not take the opportunity to become a Starfleet officer. After around two years of therapy, at the age of 21, he decided to enlist in Starfleet as a Marine instead, in hopes that the daily duties would help him get back on track.
