Personality & Traits

General Overview Perhaps it's his youthful naiveté or his transparent and warm charm but most people find Ollie very disarming and personable. He always seems to know exactly the right thing to say or do and is never short on conversation with others.

Ollie believes that everyone is, at their core, a good person and he does his best to always see the best in everyone, no matter how often others might fail to see it. Ollie hasn't met a single person he hasn't liked yet and he doesn't think he will. To Ollie, an enemy is someone you just have to try a little harder to get to be your friend.

Ollie is highly-intelligent, capricious, and an incorrigible optimist.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths: Ollie tends to be too trusting of either others or his ability to deal with others. Despite being an adept telepath, he often prefers to try to change others' minds with reason rather than make a determination based off their scanned thoughts.

Weaknesses: Ollie isn't a particularly gifted shot or hand-to-hand fighter, preferring to rely on his wits and ingenuity to get him out of tight spots.
Ambitions Ollie would like to eventually become a Chief Medical Officer on a ship doing long-term deep-space exploration and eventually end his career teaching medicine at the University of Betazed.
Hobbies & Interests Ollie has a slight fascination with other cultures, the more exotic the more interesting. He also likes to collect trinkets and souvenirs from the different worlds he visits. For example, among his collection, he has a shiny stone he found at the base of a Bajoran temple he visited, a three-player flute from Andoria, and something called a "cell phone" from 21st century Earth.

Personal History

Personal History Ollie was born and raised on Betazed to two Betazoid parents. His father, Lesan Brax, taught Betazoid and Federation history at the University of Betazed for most of his adult life and currently sits as the Department Chair. His mother, Silanna Brax, is descended from one of the noble families of the planet, the Third House of Betazed, and as such often acted as an official ambassador on behalf of Betazed in intra-Federation capacities.

The youngest of three children, Ollie had neither any pressure nor felt any particular obligation to decide what he wanted to do with his life; an exceptional student, he found he excelled at just about anything he put his mind to. Not having a particular goal set, he spent his first year at the University of Betazed studying general courses. During this year, he met his Imzadi, Sean Harrington, a human Lieutenant (Jr. Grade) in Starfleet stationed on Betazed. The pair quickly took to each other and were inseparable.

However, that same year, the Dominion invaded Betazed. Federation forces were caught off guard and Starfleet personnel were seriously under-manned. Ollie had been assigned as a civilian field medic at the University, which was serving as a shelter for Federation civilians and a field hospital.

The first week of the invasion was pure chaos. Civilian and Starfleet wounded were stranded around the city with no easy means of access. Ollie spent the first few days on rescue missions into the heart of the capital to retrieve the wounded; he also found himself more than once on missions with his imzadi. And it was during one of these missions that Sean was seriously wounded. Pinned down on the battlefield, with only basic emergency medical training, Sean's wounds were beyond Ollie's skill or knowledge and so Sean died with Ollie providing cover til his last breath.

Immediately after the liberation of Betazed, Ollie found new direction: he would not only become a doctor, he would join Starfleet, both in honor of Sean. He would make sure that he would never again be so helpless to help others, especially the ones he loved. Ollie quickly took to medical school and Starfleet Academy and excelled as he always has but this time with focus and purpose.
