Lieutenant Olsam Mott (USS Galileo)

received the

Character of the Year

Character of the Year

with the following reason:
I would like to nominate Bryanís character, Olsam Mott ( http://stgalileo.com/index.php/personnel/character/216 ) from the USS Galileo simulation, for Character of the Year. Mott has put out more than a 180 posts with this character since November 2013, and when you read his character interactions with others you can really see the level of complexity and thoughtfulness that goes into staying true to the characterís personality. What makes reading an Olsam Mott post or interaction so entertaining is the effort put into the humour and comic relief aspect that has come to make Mott a valued addition to the Galileo cast. Mott is your typical intelligent idiot trope, along the lines of a Bolian Columbo, if Columbo were a doctor. What sets this character apart from other comic relief characters is how Bryan is able to capture the absurd and turn it into a progressive plot development that keeps you reading the post. There are times when writing a joint post with Mott where one finds themselves literally laughing out loud by the cleverly delivered tag that gets sent back to you. You never know what Mott will say, and when he does say something you can always be assured that itís within the scope of the characters personality. Mott has a unique voice, and Bryan does a great job at staying true to it. When you contrast Mott with Bryanís NPCs the Mott personality is really highlighted. Iíve been on many sims in Obsidian Fleet since 2003 and I have never come across another character like him. From an out of character perspective, Bryan/Mott has always been very open and receptive to joint posts and works hard to include new people to the sim. He has taken on several OOC projects on the sim, including helping with crew quarters assignments and helping with subplot implementation. Mott is a very well-liked character, but more importantly, Bryan is a well-liked writer and he has made a mark on the sim through his OOC chats with the other writers. Especially those new to the sim. Some of my favourite Mott moments have been when he made the XO, Norvi Stace pretend to be his wife when his family visited; when he participated in a holodeck simulation, Motti Malone, based on the old black & white detective movies of the 20s-40s; or when Mott was convinced the mayor of his hometown in France was trying to off him due to the pies he made; or the tumultuous relationship Mott has to the EMH, Shirley. In a nutshell, this endearing portly character has made an impact on Galileo both IC and OOC and every time I see a Mott post come up I read it with enthusiasm. As characters go, I believe Mottís unique personality and charming portrayal, is most definitely Character of the Year quality. Though, knowing Mott, he would humbly ó if not readily ó accept a ham sandwich rather than the accolades.


Since receiving this award, Olsam Mott transferred to Deleted Characters.
