Personality & Traits

General Overview A kind and passionate man thrown into the deep end of the Dominion War at a young age, Reza has long learned to compartmentalise his life. He sees violence as a failure, but despite this he's considered a brilliant tactician. He may fight in battles, but he will always be the first in line to help rebuild afterwards. He believes very strongly in the tenet that he must study war so that his son can study law, the arts, or the sciences.
Strengths & Weaknesses He is always hesitant to resort to violence, relying more on his compassion for his fellow beings to rule him in most situations, and he considers this to be his greatest strength. But this is a double-edged sword as it can make him a vacillating and slow to act commander as well. He will rely on those he trusts to act when he cannot.

Service Record Reza graduated in May 2375, and was posted to the USS Gutenberg. Whilst on his first active deployment in 2377, Ensign Rashid performed a notable service that brought him to the attention of Admiral Drouet who liked the cut of his jib. As recognition of his actions Rashid was advanced to Lieutenant (jg). Drouet made sure to keep his eye on young Rashid. Whilst serving aboard the USS Normandy, Lt. Rashid saved his shipmates during an Engineering Emergency in 2384, whereupon he was promoted to Lieutenant Senior Grade. In 2386, Rashid was transferred to Freedom Squadron. He performed sterling service, achieving excellent evaluations from his superiors and developed an easy rapport with subordinates. While taking part in Fleet Exercises, Reza created the Rashid Manoeuver, a remarkable feat of tactical genius earning advancement to the Advanced Tactical Course. Having achieved some of the highest scores seen in the Tactical Simulator in its history, Reza was promoted to Lt. Commander in 2388. In 2392, he was promoted to Commander for services rendered, and given command of his first starship, the USS Rutupiae.
