Personality & Traits
|General Overview||AJ is a genuinely humble person. He is an introvert by nature and often likes to be alone than to be surrounded by people he doesn’t want to be around with. However that does not stop him from attempting to join the party and often times even socializing with others. His line of work does keep him away from pursuing romantic interests. One of his greatest weakness is not knowing how far he is willing to go to complete a mission. He follows orders to the letter and does not like to half ass any assignment. But being an infiltration specialist he has had to kill and steal to complete his missions. He has justified his actions, at least to himself, because he knows that his actions have saved the lives of Federation citizens, potentially hundreds of people.|
|Ambitions||AJ would one day like to retire on a developing colony staying off the grid and living off the land. He has been surrounded by technology all of his life and would like live without it at some point.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Some of his hobbies include practicing his combat skills in the holodeck, or practicing his marksmanship skills with a variety of weapons. He also spends time working on other small skills that he may need from his previous assignments. He has a degree in electrical engineering as well as in organic chemistry.
|Personal History|| Allen Jones grew up in the rural town in Georgia. His childhood was rather normal for a child of such upbringing, with no unusual happenings occurring for most of his first 17 years of life. While he spent a good majority of his time playing sports, and otherwise building his body, Charles also spent a good portion of his time in libraries, studying Earth history, mainly the history of Earth wars.
During his four years at the Marine Academy,Allen showed remarkable skill for managing personnel and planning battle strategies. His leadership skills were surprisingly developed for someone so young, and his ability to garner results from anyone he was placed with was the subject of much admiration.
Upon leaving the Academy, 2nd Lt. Jones was given, and subsequently accepted a position in a Starfleet Intelligence Team that would soon change his life. Then Commander Brian Gentry saw potential in the fresh faced young 2nd Lt. Because of his superior ability to garner trust and information from people he came into contact with, 2nd Lt. Jones's first assignment was as an Intelligence Officer, a position that gave him broad experiences and contact with virtually all the members of the large intelligence team. After a few years serving as an Intel officer, 2nd Lt. Jones requested that he be transferred to an area where he would gain a much more useful set of skills to aid him in his mission.
His request was granted in the form of Weapons and Demolitions Expert, where he spent several months training with some of the best operatives in the field. Because of his desire to learn, Lt. Jones mastered most of what he was taught, though his level of competence began to fall off after he was exposed to the most complicated and hard to master weapons and explosives. This did not diminish his effectiveness, however, and he went on to serve in the post with remarkable flair and style. Several notable, though classified engagements with Federation enemies saw the inventive use of explosives not only to distract and confound the enemy, but to aid the team in the completion of their missions, something that greatly impressed Captain Gentry.
His next transfer was one that now 1st Lt. Jones never asked for. Because of his undisputed mastery of all things destructive, Capt. Gentry decided to test Lt. Jones's ability to use stealth and cunning to get a job done, rather than brute force and a hail of weapons fire. Such a complete shift in roles was indeed a challenge for the Marine, and though he would later succeed in mastering even that, his early attempts proved less than masterful. His first mission as an Infiltration Expert proved too much for his limited experience with the covert world. In the midst of a rather important and highly classified mission, Lt. Jones inadvertently destroyed a power distribution network, causing himself and several team members to be discovered and captured after a lengthy battle against superior numbers. Thankfully a rescue operation swiftly spirited them away before their existence could be made public and their entire mission compromised. Subsequent missions proved far more successful, and Lt. Jones's exploits soon earned him a promotion to Captain.
A year after his promotion to Captain, Capt. Jones found himself taking on a role that he, in his mind, had been born to fulfill, that of Strategic Operations Officer. His prowess for planning and effectively utilizing the strengths of the individual members of a team to execute nearly flawless missions within enemy territory earned him much respect among his peers and superiors. At the end of his third year as the Strategic Operations Officer, the Intelligence Team found themselves faced with a tragic loss. On a mission to infiltrate a Romulan outpost suspected of making raids on Federation holdings near the Neutral Zone, the team's Executive Officer was discovered, savagely tortured, and put to death. This sent shockwaves through the team, and morale was crippled for months.
The news suddenly reached Captain Jones that he would be filling in as the Executive Officer until a suitable candidate was found. Such news seemed to instantly stave off the tide of poor morale, though he did very little in the way of run the team as his duties as a strategist took up most of his time. After the units safe return from deployment Captain Jones was named Chief Intelligence Officer on a Secret Intelligence ship USS Guardsman. Technical Malfunctions prevented the Guardsman from launching and Captain Jones took a transfer to be Marine CO on the USS Victory
