B. Background Summary
Sean is an emminently capable science officer and commander.  He 
possesses an almost single-minded dedication to his work.  His fellows 
describe him as stern, but approachable; quick tempered, but loyal.  

For all his effectiveness as an officer, Sean is haunted by the death of 
his ex-wife, Jeri Wilson.  

Sean met Jeri at Starbase 10 in Jiu Jitsu class (she taught him 
everything he knows about the martial arts).  They married after just 
six months of wrestling on the mat.  Their careers exacerbated an 
already rocky relationship.  As an aerospace architect, Jeri frequently 
worked at remote construction sites.  Sean, of course, was often deployed.  
They quickly grew apart and finally divorced after several bittersweet 

Jeri headed back for Earth to make a fresh start with a new building 
project.  On her return voyage, she accepted a friend's invitation to 
visit a retreat on Vulcan.  She felt that after her tumultuous divorce 
she would benefit from that world's calm serenity.  

The renegade Nero destroyed Vulcan in the week of her arrival.  Jeri was 
35 when she died and Sean could not find a way to forgive himself for 
having driven her away to her death.  

Sean turned his self-loathing and disappointment with God into an 
obsessive devotion to his career.  On his better days, he used 
his time off to scan and contribute to the Starfleet Exosciences White 
Pages.  On his worse days, he drowned his sorrows in virtual reality 
pornography and tequila.  

On SD 2261, Sean finally hit bottom.  While in a drunken stupor, he 
mistook nurse LTjg Kiska Saxman for his dead ex-wife and she obligingly 
took him back to his quarters.  There she gave him an ultimatum to 
either get help or face the consequences of his disorderly conduct.  
After much soul searching, Sean returned to his Christian faith and 
sobered.  While his sense of humor still carries a decidedly cynical 
edge, his associates have noticed a general uplifting in his mood.

Sean has always had an eye for women and they generally see him as 
attractive.  But it took 2 years of mourning Jeri and a meeting with an
alternate universe version of her before he again found an interest in 
dating.  He initially showed some interest in the HOOD's Science Officer,
LT Cedria Zade, but decided she was a bit too wild for his tastes.  He 
has since set his sights on the lovely LTjg Kiska Saxman.

Before joining the HOOD, Sean's ground combat experience extended to 
skirmishes on Arrancar VI and Monil IV.  He saw space combat against 
Klingons as a Helmsman aboard the FARSTAR.  

After several more missions, Sean was reassigned to Starbase duty and
his new girlfriend Kiska Saxman chose to follow him. They were married
a year later in a quiet ceremony in Alaska, attended by close friends and 
family. Shortly after, the needs of the Fleet split up the newlywed couple.
Kiska was reassigned to the HOOD again while Sean took command of
the destroyer PERRY.  Both miss each other dearly, but know that their
careers will align again soon. They patiently wait for the day they will be
reunited permanently.
