Personality & Traits

General Overview A steel determination rides under the surface of a cavalier exterior, Holt will do almost anything for his family, friends and crew. When life and death isn't on the line he takes a lighter approach to life and is often seen by others and not taking care. Yet he will always give his all to whatever he is doing.
Strengths & Weaknesses While Holt holds himself to high standards, he will often beat himself up when he doesn't achieve the best result. His determination to be the best is his greatest weakness when dealing with others as they will not share his "all hands on deck" approach.
This coupled with his off handed quips ends up bringing about awkward social situations that are quite uncomfortable for everyone involved.
Ambitions Holt eventually sees himself commanding his own ship and crew, hopefully on the frontier of the Federation, being a true explorer.
Hobbies & Interests A thirst for knowledge has led Holt to find a love of reading about old explorers who were pioneers of their time. He will often run holodeck simulations of these events, spending too much time reliving the past.

He also does not mind finding new drinks and drinking games, often coercing others into the games also.

Personal History Raised on Earth to a military family, Holt had very little stability as a child, often being taken around with his parents as they travelled from place to place on assignments. His mother a Starfleet Marine was the cause for all of this.
Having a strong woman role model, Holt often viewed his father as a soft man and as he grew up clashed more and more with Harold. This culminated into Holt leaving the family at the age of 16 and joining a cargo ship as a deck hand.
Losing touch with his family, Holt found family in his crew. Serving for two years on the Icarus as a deck hand then as the 'security' officer. Holt found his way back to Earth.

On Earth he reunited with his mother who helped Holt gain entrance into Starfleet through the Marine corp.
He found the intense training and challenge was exactly what he had been lacking and needing. Excelling at the Academy, Holt graduated with Class Honors.
