Please note that he's coming in from the first episode of the season, Intervention, and doesn't know about the death of his and TJ's baby yet.

Character Personality: At first glance, Colonel Young is your typical no-nonsense Air Force Colonel. He puts the safety of those under his command and care first. There are even moments where the safety of those under his command take precedence over his own safety, willing to sacrifice himself to save his people, having nearly done so multiple times over the course of the series. That's not all to him though. He's a deeply flawed man, not seeming to have the word monogamous in his vocabulary and possessing a vicious temper when he's pushed far beyond his ability to stay calm.

As a leader, Young is a very calm, level headed individual, thinking on every decision he makes because people's lives are at stake and making the wrong decision could wind up with disastrous consequences. He's the sort of leader that has a strong commanding presence, giving off the air that he is fully in charge while not having an air of superiority over the men he commands. In fact, to his men, he's almost like a father figure, always making sure they're doing well and to show that he does care about them, even if he's normally not the most visibly emotional person. Not surprisingly,Young's very soft spoken and rarely every raises his voice, when he does so usually meaning that something is very, very wrong and he's incredibly angry about it. He tends to act on his emotions which, when coupled with his very vicious temper, causes him to sometimes overreact to a situation and do something really stupid he tends to regret later. Young normally does have that temper of his under control and it's very rare when he does act upon it, although in the last few months, he is starting to crack and his ability to keep his emotions in check is weakening.

When it comes to dealing with people on a personal level, he's not very good at it. What little personal life he has is in shambles and it's his fault. He loves his wife very deeply, but at the same time still had an affair with one of the soldiers under his command, who he would eventually get pregnant. Also, he tends to be more outwardly emotional, showing his emotions instead of just hiding them from everybody. He's compulsive when it comes to his personal life and so he tends to screw so really badly to the point where he gets himself into trouble.
Conditional: Personality development in previous game: N/A
Character Plans: Find a way back to Destiny and if that fails, try to help out in the city as much as a fail drama colonel can.

Appearance/PB: Louis Ferreira

Writing Samples

First Person Sample
Rush, I don't care what project of yours you're working on, you have to get to the gate room now. The ship's dialed a planet and you're needed to figure out what we need from this one. Eli, Volker, and Brody are all ready down here, so we're just waiting on you. As soon as you're done with this, you can go back to doing whatever it is you do when you disappear off to somewhere.

Third Person Sample
It was quiet in the halls of the ship at what the crew considered night. There wasn't night on a spaceship hurtling past stars faster than the speed of light, but somehow nearly everybody had adapted to that. Young was one of the few who didn't, which was the reason for him restlessly wandering the halls of the Ancient ship when he should be fast asleep with most of the crew. He knew that Rush was still awake, having caught sight of him in front of a console working on whatever problem plagued them that week.

Young knew better than to bother Rush, especially after everything that had happened. The incident of leaving him behind on that planet still weighed on both of their minds, this yet another reason why Young was walking. It was a small comfort to him to be out away from people where he didn't have to be the colonel and make sure to keep the crew's hopes alive. The toll of being in charge was showing. He was losing his temper more, screwing up in decisions that affect everyone. Young was worried he was going to snap if they didn't find a way home, but he had to pull himself together. He was the only person the crew could trust to be in charge to bring them home, even if he wasn't qualified for this. Letting out a sigh, Young stopped his walk and turned back towards his quarters. Nothing good would happen if he didn't try to get some sleep. The problems with the ship and the crew could wait until "morning."
