Personality & Traits

General Overview Cross is an odd fit for a counselor. He's gruff and to the point sometimes, though definitely empathetic, especially in regards to problems dealing with death, and military conflict. He is generally laid back in his outlooks, however, and almost takes to counseling as a hobby more than anything else. At least at first glance.
Strengths & Weaknesses Cross is a very regimented person in day-to-day routine. Very strong willed, and a workaholic to boot. He keeps very strong composure under stress.

He is extremely stubborn, and feels that in some situations, his experience trumps even rank. It will get him in trouble from time to time.
Ambitions He has no ambitions other than to keep working. He has been married 3 times, and subsequently divorced 3 times. His true love is work.
Hobbies & Interests He collects military antiques, and also enjoys playing cards. He has always had a strong interest in psychology and theology, though he is an atheist.
Languages vulcan, romulan, can understand klingon.

Personal History Aaron Cross grew up in Arizona. During his youth, his father was captured and executed by the Romulans during a mission in the Neutral Zone. This event influenced him to go into the military himself. Upon completing school, he entered the academy, excelling in tactical strategy, ground combat operations, and xenopsychology.

Cross had a distinguished career all the way through the Dominion wars, commanding a multitude of successful operations on the ground against the Jem'hadar. After the war concluded, he took a post at Starfleet Academy, teaching ground combat tactics, eventually deciding that he was going to retire, and settle down. After trying and failing at marriage for a 3rd time, he decided to rejoin Starfleet, but as a counselor instead. Hoping that his experiences could help those that had served in similar capacity to himself, he finished his training, and buried himself back in work.
