Physical Description If one word could be chosen describe Ellis' appearance, it would be meticulous. His uniform and clothing are always finely pressed. What would likely be shoulder length jet black hair is slicked back into a ponytail into which every single strand is deliberately confined. His mustache and goatee are kept immaculately and painstakingly trimmed, and there is... of course... the monacle set carefully at his right eye, perched beside a rather hawkish nose. The remainder of his features, and even the composition of the whole of his body, speak of an almost preternatural calm. The man seems forever poised in a receptive state, ever watchful and ever listening.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Viewed as something of an eccentric by a large number of his colleagues, Ellis is a man who believes very much in the patterns of the universe and in concepts of cosmic synchronicity. To him, the whole of the universe is a staggeringly vast mechanism and, if one can step back far enough to observe it unfold... then almost anything can be patterned and predicted. He believes fully that living beings are the universe made conscious, a way for it to learn about itself. This unique philosophical perspective has instilled within him deep fascinations with what he calls " The Three M's", Mathematics, Music, and Meditation. The first two, he claims, are the two great languages of the universe and intrinsically linked. The third is the best means by which to process that language. He can often be found on observation decks while ships are at warp, as he feels that the universe reveals itself better through subspace, that you are in a better position to view and understand its patterns there. And he also enjoys contemplating the inherent contradiction of a moving universe of vast inescapable causal relationships with the free will that every living being possesses. Mostly, Ellis is a quiet and observant man, content to let things unfold before him until he feels he has enough data to form a conclusion and to act. When he does act, however, he does so decisively... casting any hesitation or doubt aside. Once a course is set, it's set.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths: Ellis has a very analytical mind and a nearly perfect memory. He also has a knack for programming and has designed his own companion AI.

Weaknesses: His social skills are severely lacking. And also cannot put down a puzzle he has yet to solve. The seeming randomness of events or the apparently irrational actions of people intrigue him, as he feels he s seeing a part of a pattern that hasn't revealed itself yet.
Ambitions None presently. At the moment he is content with his position. He became an operative because it affords him more opportunities to see the broader complexities of the universe. After all, you need as much data as possible to form a complete picture, so you need access to the things people would otherwise keep hidden.
Hobbies & Interests "The Three M's".
