Character summary.

Character History:

Born in the small village of Kessla, nestled in the foothills of the Bajoran countryside, Adami and Antos were both slave workers under the Cardassian Occupation. His father slaved at the water facilitation plant, while his mother was a servant for a prominent Cardassian until she gave birth to Essa. Shortly after, she returned to work, caring for Essa in between her duties. When Essa turned thirteen, a small force of Cardassian raided their village suspecting that they were supporting local sects of the Underground. Storehouses were pillaged and the village was set ablaze. Including Essa's house, with his parents still trapped inside. Essa was just coming back from the fields on the outskirts of the village when he saw the fires and the Cardassians. Dropping the wheat he was carrying to the ground, Essa took off running for the hills.

Nearing the foothills, he was spotted and detained by a member of the Bajoran Underground. They had been holed up in some caves nearby. The woman took a liking to Essa, and offered him refuge in the resistance. Accepted amongst them, Essa took to running errands for the group. At sixteen, several members of the group began to train Essa in the art of tactical operations. Shortly after, he began helping them with attacks against Cardassian targets on Bajor.

When the Occupation ended, Essa and members of the Underground held on for a short period, taking jabs at selected Cardassian transitional targets. That is until they were caught in a co-operative sting effort by Starfleet and Bajoran forces on Deep Space 9. The Bajoran government brought them up on trial and possible exile. Except for Essa. During the process, Essa requested to consult with a Starfleet representative. Granted, he pled his case to the lead officer, who decided the young man could use a second chance to redeem himself and sponsored his application to Starfleet Academy. Just before his twentieth birthday, he was shipped to Earth to prepare for Starfleet Academy.

Personality Profile

Cadet Bishop has issues with losing parents on Bajor. Issues are related directly to Cardassians and are very hostile in nature. Strongly suggest that Cadet have no relations with Cardassians in the future, especially in an official capacity with Starfleet. In normal settings, Cadet showed normal coping skills and relations with all other cadets at SFA. Cadet Bishop shows all indications of being a fine student, as education records show.
