trength: He is a tough grunt, he works hard at what he does and doesn't let anything get in his way. He is a Strong and tough leader but it gets the results that he wants. This is why he was chosen to be a lead drill instructor of the Oberon Base.
Weakness: He can be a bit of a workaholic, there has been times where he was relieved of duty by the Chief Medical Officer because he over worked himself. He is working on this so he doesn't get relieved of duty again
