|Personal History||Charles and Kendal Payne had a very normal childhood. Their father, Jack Payne is a business executive. While their mother is a Professor of Chemistry at Springfield University. The home was happy. Many happy memories of young Charlie and his little sister Kendal playing together. It was good times.
Charles was always a good student in school. But he always had a slight problem with authority figures. As a child he got into the usual amount of trouble as a kid. A couple of times with the police. But generally, Charles was a good kid. Very into sports and athletics.
Charles had just completed High School when he brought the idea to his parents of what he wanted to do with his life. He wanted to join Star Fleet. But, he wanted to be an enlisted man, not an officer. After a certain " Getting used to the idea " period the Paynes reluctantly accepted their son's choice.
Charles excelled in his classes when being trained. He loved his choices. His first assignment out of training was the USS Ghandi. Charles excelled at his post. After a short amount of time, he was promoted to full crewman. At the end of his assigned time on the Ghandi, Charles put in for a new ship and got on the USS Melbourne. And with his now position, He was promoted to Crewman 2nd Class. Charles served this ship with distinction. And, and the destruction of this ship at Wolf 359. Because of his direct actions, Half the Engineering section survived. Charles was wounded and decorated. Then, promoted
It was when he was convalescing, after the whole business with the Borg was over that he learned his sister was joining Star Fleet. It was a running joke between them that he would need to bear the shame of having an Officer for a sister. She knew that her brother was proud in reality.
Charles next assignment was on Star base 101. He found this assignment challenging. Learning the difference between ship and base life. And Charles found that he promotions came easy to him. When asked he said his secret was just doing the best job he knew how. ALL the time. And he used the time to advance his education. and again, promoted.
His duty assignment was nearing a close at the Star base. It suited Charles just fine. He was ready for a change. He put in for another duty assignment. And drew the USS Tucker. When he arrived on board, he was happy to see he would be serving with Lt Kendal Payne. She was the ship's communication's officer. After a brief amount of time, Charles was recommended for a position as COB for the USS Wineburg. An old Oberth class vessel. But this was an important step in career development.
Charles proved he had a knack for leadership. He excelled in this role. Again, promotion came and with that, so did position. Charles rose fairly fast. His career did have a hick up when he served aboard the USS Pegasus under Capt. Pressman. ( Subject is classified ) Before he knew it, he was the Chief of the Boat on the USS Lexington herself. with the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer. Kendal wanted him on her ship, the USS Geronimo. But he felt it weird to call his own sister Captain.
Charles served on the Lex until his tour was over. Then, he was snagged by Admiral T'Shek as the Fleet Master Chief for sector 1. Charles found this job challenging. But, at this time, the Marquis Rebellion was starting to make waves. And like a lot of people, this did not sit well with Charles. So, after souls searching Charles resigned from the fleet he loved so much over Star fleet's stance in the entire matter.
Having no idea what he would do next, Charles found an old friend he had served with on the Ghandi. This friend was now a music producer. He remembered how Charles loved to play his guitar and write his own songs. He wanted to give Charles a chance making music professionally. Charles actually became a minor celebrity within the Federation. Having hit singles on Teller, Andoria, and Bajor. He was really starting to gain momentum in the UFP entertainment circuit, when he received a message. The message informed his his sister, Rear Admiral Payne wished to speak with him.
At this time the Marque affair was mainly over. The Federation faced a new threat......The Dominion. She made Charles an offer to jump back to his old rank as Command Master Chief and come in as an adviser. Charles was about to say no. But, he heard a sense of urgency in his sister's voice. Because she asked.....He said YES.
Charles's position as an adviser was, lets just say, more then what he would have bargained for. He bravely did his part with flair and courage. When the war ended, Charles wanted to get back to his music. But, his sister begged his to stay because they needed him. But, with the re-organisation.....They did not have a position for a Command Master Chief. Charles agreed to go back to Master Chief Petty Officer.
He was assigned to Star Fleet Operations on Earth under Admiral Paris. He worked well with the admiral. But Charles wanted to go back into space. He hounded the Admiral for an acceptable assignment. He finally was assigned to the USS Poseidon.
