|Name: Captain Uilleam Matheson|
Original Character - Star Trek fandom
Appearance: At about 6' and 183 pounds, Matheson isn't the most physically intimidating captain in Starfleet history. His hair is a deep auburn, his Scottish heritage only present if he grows out his facial hair, which is a ruddy red. His eyes are green, and his skin surprisingly clean of freckles or sunspots. Modern medicinal technology ensures that he has few, if any scars, in spite of having lived through and participated in the Dominion War. His haircut is typically fairly conservative, as is the rest of his appearance and stance.

Matheson and crew are reassigned to the newest ship from Starfleet: the USS Florentine, NCC-82621, a Vesta class multi-mission explorer in line with both the crew's primary mission and the military instability developing in galactic politics.
Powers: Captain Matheson is a normal human, with no outstanding powers to separate him from the species.
Skills: A graduate of Starfleet Academy and Starfleet Command School, Matheson is a fully trained Starfleet officer with battlefield experience and leadership capability. With several battlefield commendations and ribbons under his belt, he's demonstrated a mind for tactics and even diplomatic skill in handling internal tensions on ships and stations. He's also quite skilled in the techniques and style of Gōjū-ryū karate, having studied since the age of twelve and with a sixth-dan black belt in the art.
Despite little infantry experience, he possesses the requisite textbook training in such fields as per standard SCS schooling.
