Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Tettly is gregarious and outgoing, typically laughing and smiling and enjoying a good drink with good friends, telling stories of his various misadventures in Starfleet. A Klingon once told him he'd have made a good Klingon, and the comparison wasn't far off. He's just not as violent.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Tettly is a hard worker, a dedicated friend, and an unstoppable force when he puts his mind to something. He gets the job done, and he gets it done well. He is a natural born leader
The problem, is that his drive can often cause him to forget to enjoy life like he needs to. In addition to that, he takes failure more deeply than most. He also has a hard time following from time to time, his need to compete overruling his need to comply.
|Ambitions||Nothing but the top for Tettly, his ambitions are to run his own ship and reach the Admiralty. And if at all possible: To beat his brother there.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Tettly likes to rock climb, hang glide, play ball, target shoot, and practice archery in his spare time. He's also been running a holoprogram for quite a while, trying to get an old earth hot rod working again.|
|Personal History||Tettly was raised in a suburb outside of Indianapolis, Indiana. He was brought up with his twin brother Stone, and by the age of 6, the two were already competing. Unlike other parents, Tettly's made no bones about their favorite kid being the one who did the most. Stone got a leg up on Tettly by being born first, and never gave that leg back.
Kindergarten was their last quiet year, because when both boys went into first grade, the competition began. Kickball, tee-ball, baseball, football. From first grade into and all the way through high school, there was no end to the competition, and their parents encouraged it.
At one point, Tettly had almost had too much, and exploded to his father, venting all of his frustration at the constant need for competition to buy their love. In a rare moment of honest and genuine love, Alexander Biggs explained to his son that their competition wasn't to buy their love, that both boys had and had equally, it was to drive them forward and make them the best they could be.
After that, with a renewed understanding of what was happening and why, Tettly took everything in stride, still trying to beat his brother in every thing from the prettiest girlfriend to the fastest car, but knowing that the love of his parents was not at stake. After all... what's a little sibling rivalry between brothers.
Tettly was a star pupil (his grades only slightly lower than his brother's), he excelled over all of his classmates and held the highest marks in just about every simulator in the school, constantly competing with his classmates. Despite a few demerits for fist fights with rival students, he graduated from Starfleet Marine Academy with Honors and was given very good chances to wind up secure aboard a Federation Starship.
Unfortunately for Tettly, he was a part of one of the larger graduating classes, and the starships were filled before he could acquire a position. That left Starbase 119, the one place he didn't want to go. Given the option of venturing among the stars or orbiting Uranus, he would have much rather chosen the stars. A long year past with him assigned there until, finally, Tettly got assignment orders for a ship: USS Angel.
The USS Angel was a medical ship, and not exactly what he was hoping for, but it was better than what he'd had before. He was assigned as a grunt marine, and before long he'd worked himself up to 1st lieutenant. He enjoyed his work on the Angel, but was still looking for more forward action in a posting.
Needless to say, he was ecstatic when the orders to Transfer to the Akira-class USS Starbuck came in.
The USS Starbuck was where Tettly really began to shine. The Starbuck was stationed along the Romulan Neutral Zone and as such was in direct line to receive the panic when the planet suffered suffered it's massive quakes. The system was alive with people trying to get out, trying to get in, and trying to take advantage. It was up to the Starbuck to stop that.
He was assigned the position of Marine Tactical Officer and made the best of it. His crew mates and superior officers were impressed with him to say the least, and he loved it. His MCO loved it to, as their department tightened up to record breaking levels of efficiency.
Tettly served aboard the Starbuck for five years, before orders finally came through that he was being transferred. Now, leaving his home of the last five years, he looks forward to a higher position, and the opportunity to run his own department. Tettly Biggs, large and in charge. Unfortunately for him, he found himself a tactical specialist again, under a diffierent MCO... only time would tell how the Antares would treat him.
