Lithe and fit, keeps himself well toned with regular work outs both singularly though most frequently with his Assistant Chief. His Albino appearance can make people uneasy around him, so he's careful not to react to anyone who looks startled when they meet him for the first time.
A very astute tactical plotter as well as highly trained Security and Intelligence officer, Kevin has always tried to be someone whom his fellow officers and staff can fully trust with their lives.
He knows that his 'privileged' background is something that people have often used against him, believing that he 'doesn't know how it feels to need or want'. However, his experiences through his Security department career, prior to and during the Dominion War, tell a different story.
He still carries the scars (physical and mental) of those dark times, but it's also helped him realize how strong he can be when called upon.
+ Loyal to the crew he serves with
+ Duty comes first
+ Can use any type of phaser or phaser rifle
+ Marksman 1st Class

- Not good at taking leave due to him, see's himself as constantly being on duty/call
- Can be a little fussy about what he eats
- Sometimes a little 'to competitive' in training
Fulfil his duties day by day. For Kevin, that's all that counts.
Hobbies and Interests:
Reading, music, walking, cricket, bowling and the upkeep of bonsai trees.
Born to a wealthy aristocratic family, Kevin's youth was not one of 'foot loose and fancy free' living just because of his class status.
From a very early age, he was instructed by his parents that nothing was going to be handed to him on a silver platter, nor had he been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he would have to study and work hard for everything he required.
He did have the best schooling and the best tuition, there was no denying that, but, it was ascertained that his skills were more suited to physical attributes more that study ones. He was a bright pupil, no denying it, and he didn't lack in the study work he took, history being a particular interest of his.
As time went on, his home duties became more and more regimented as he began his training in the graces and fortitudes that would one day see him take over the head of the household when his father retired or passed away. Kevin found these tedious sessions, and more than once he had to walk out to save himself from 'ditching' his tutors.
His father saw that the Diplomatic Corp he himself served in was definitely not what Kevin would do, his temperament was just not right. They both sat down one day, along withy his mother and discussed what exactly it was he felt he'd like to do. Unsurprisingly he spoke of wanting to enter Starfleet and become a Security Officer. It didn't matter where he served, so long as that was the career path he began.
His studies complete, and exams taken and graded, Kevin was delighted that he could apply to Starfleet to join their Academy and train to become a Starfleet Security Officer.
The four years he spent there were fraught at times, as a number of Cadets couldn't take the fact that they had aristocracy within their ranks He was mercilessly ribbed at times, and on more than one occasion his quick quips putting them down caused friction and he ended up in a fight. However, he did win as many fights as he got a 'doing over' in, and in the end it endeared him to his fellow Cadets and they accepted the 'Scots snob' as one of their own.

Awards (Security Record):
Bronze Star for gallantry. Saved the shuttle (from USS
Frannery) he was on from crashing by shorting out the primary
circuits and crossing them with purely flight controls. Power was cut
but the shuttle was easily glided down to make a 'soft crash
landing', saving the lives of the six crew on board.
Silver Star and Cluster. Was Security team leader on an away team
to Ceti Turni III which rescued the Juris Lett (President or
equivalent) from a prison camp. The Federation/Ceti Turni III
negotiations had been interrupted when the Juris Lett has been
kidnapped and held to ransom to stop the negotiations from taking
place. Kevin and his team were one of three specialized teams sent
into try to rescue him.
Whilst the USS Frannery was part of the Federation task Force trying to halt the advance during an attack by a rogue pirate group called "The Collective" in the Dirka system, his ship succumbed to heavy damage and crash landed on CX-136. A great many of the crew managed to get out of the ship, but they were quickly surrounded by "The Collective" forces and casualties were heavy on both sides.
Eventually Kevin and those of the Frannery crew who were left were simply worn down by the number of the Collective soldiers fighting them and Captain Zamos called a halt to the fighting and surrendered, he didn't want to see everyone of his crew die.
Over the next two months, those of the Frannery crew who were taken prisoner were tortured horribly, not just physically, but mentally as well. It was during this time that his friendship with Shr'Nesh Karadis grew stronger and closer.
When eventually the Federation forces took CX-136 from "The Collective", they found only six of the original forty two USS Frannery crew prisoners still alive.
Kevin had many nightmares about what happened, and even now, a couple of years later he still has flashbacks. There simply wasn't the time for a long recovery period as Starfleet needed every available Officer it had to continue the fight against "The Collective". Re-joining the remains of the original crew, he served the rest of the fight against that group onboard the USS Frannery - A under Captain Zamos before moving on with his career.
