Family and Background

:

Was born on a croft in Ballachulish, in the North-West Highlands of Scotland, Earth. Both his parents ran the croft. His father was a crofter and fisherman and his mother was the local doctor. During the holidays, Kenny spent his time either helping his father run the croft or helping him fish in a local loch. He enjoyed taking the boat out to fish and became an expert sailor. Enjoyed climbing Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest mountain, when he was younger and this carried on as he grew up into a mountain-climbing hobby. Also loves Scottish and Earth history. Having spent a lot of his younger life gazing at the stars in the clear sky over his village, he developed an interest in the other species that lived out there. His head teacher in Secondary school nurtured that interest and helped him find out a great deal about the other races in the Federation. This fuelled his interest in Starfleet and was the specific reason for him applying to the Academy. He passed the Academy Entrance Exam first time and moved to San Francisco. Looks the strong silent type but is very friendly once spoken to. Normally quiet and thoughtful and doesn't talk much. In a crisis is cool, calm and collected. Although he loves modern technology, he is able to use basic old-fashioned technology if needed to. He is very tidy and organised and his room if often near-spotless with everything where is should be, even at his workplace. Has a habit of moving things which are not his if he is using the place which they are near to, to make things more tidy.
