Personality & Traits

General Overview Serious-minded, sharp-witted and sarcastic, Hargreaves can be difficult to get along with socially until one gets past her barriers or works closely with her. At that point they have a loyal friend for life, albeit an acerbic and occasionally challenging one. Despite this she is a consummate professional in her work, dedicated and focused and placing little of more importance in life. It is clear her history has shaped her, both in her commitment to Starfleet and her personal troubles; she is a seasoned Marine who has built her life around the Corps, and has left very little room for anything else.
Strengths & Weaknesses Hargreaves is a dedicated and experienced officer, talented in hand-to-hand combat, marksmanship, survival, and small-unit tactics and leadership. She looks after her team, inspiring loyalty by setting high, but clear standards that she obviously holds herself to. Driven and dedicated, she also has a flair for the creative in tactics and problem-solving that helped move her into officer training. Notes have been left on her records, both positively and with hints of concern, that her loyalty to the Federation and her orders is sometimes unquestioning.

In her work, she can sometimes struggle to look at the bigger picture, being very focused on the here and now, and identifies as a soldier to a degree that has occasionally been criticized by Starfleet assessments. She can be very difficult to get on with personally, being sarcastic and standoffish by nature and not inclined to letting people in, and if one has earned her disrespect then she is inclined to make this known bluntly.
Ambitions Having received her commission, Hargreaves has made it clear she intends to serve as a unit commander for as long as possible. If pressed, she has inferred she may return to scholarly research of military tactics and history once no longer a front-line officer, rather than advance through Marine Corps command.
Hobbies & Interests Marksmanship, Krav Maga, military history, outdoor sports, parkour, modern music.

Personal History Ellie Hargreaves grew up with a comfortable life on the colony world of Ajilon Prime, on the Klingon-Federation border. This made for a peaceful existence with a happy family, a good education, and thoughts of pursuing a career in law until she was fifteen, and war with the Klingon Empire broke out. The invasion of Ajilon Prime was a brutal and bloody affair, and both of Ellie’s parents were casualties.

The Federation of course gave support for war orphans, and she and her elder brother Robert were relocated on Earth – but no amount of assistance could overcome the loss. Robert pursued his studies while Ellie lost all interest in previous ambitions, signing up with the Marine Corps not long after the end of the Dominion War.

In the Marine Corps infantry she fought through the war with the C’hakilian Empire and the 2379 Gorn occupation of Cestus, racking up combat experience in a short period of time. These challenges proved the lifestyle suited her and she wanted more, pursuing Marine Force Reconnaissance training and serving in Marine Force Recon for three years after, including through the reopening of hostilities with the C’hakilian Empire in 2380.

Despite service in an elite branch of the Marine Corps, a profession that could have seen her challenged and satisfied throughout her career, Hargreaves found herself jumping at further opportunities. Her chops as a leader had been demonstrated repeatedly and recommendations were made for her to pursue a commission. This led to several years at Starfleet Academy, where she emerged a 2nd Lieutenant.

Now a Special Operations Team Leader, Hargreaves excelled in missions during the 2386 Breen Crisis, demonstrating the aptitude that made her stand out from her fellows. She served on the USS Gideon for three years, through a promotion to 1st Lieutenant. This, like her posting on the USS Daisho in 2380-83, has included several spots in her record of detached duty with her team and the occasional classified operation.

With the situation on the Beta Quadrant fronts heating up, Hargreaves was posted to the USS Hawaii to shore up the combat experience, as a seasoned Marine and veteran of the previous Gorn conflict.
