Biographical Information


Jameson is a generally quiet guy who doesn't style himself as anyone special. He prefers to keep a low presence though will occasionally come out of his shell. The man is a brain and a dedicated officer as well. He began his career in the Marines working for Intelligence and spent more than a year working with the infantry developing tactics for asymmetrical warfare - all in the field. The Colonel isn't just one for small arms, though. He's built a career with the Navy based on innovative tactics. His first cruise with the Navy brought about a stunning victory in an exercise against a Battlestar which won him deployment to the same ship he had 'killed' in the wargame. He's spent the remainder of his time in the Navy aboard Battlestars and is generally seen as an officer headed for the Admiralty.

Pre IC History


Jameson rarely speaks about his family and will generally change the topic when its brought up. Though he is intensely interested in other people's families. It might lead to rumors about his own past but he generally stays quiet about it.


What little there is to speak of isn't relative or flattering. In secondary school he barely eeked by to graduation. Jameson has an associates degree from a small college on Tauron. But the only education that matters to him is the one he has gotten from the military. Marine Basic Training. OCS. Colonial Naval War College.

Military Service

Captain Fotilas enlisted when he was 20 and rocketed ahead after that. He's made every promotion board he's gone before and is very aggressive about getting his career done properly. The man refuses to step over other people to get anything done, rather Jameson prefers to help those who have helped him. He's an excellent reference and has helped quite a few officers make promotions. However he has little patience for those whom he see's as unqualified for their duties.

His service jacket reads like a novel with the first echelons of ranks completed with the Marines, getting his hands dirty in the field and working closely with the same unit commanders. During his boards for Lieutenant, he was offered a slot at the Naval War College with the rank. He completed it at the top of his class, specializing in Unconventional Battle with an emphasis on Asymmetrical Warfare. This lead directly to an offer to serve as a Tactical Officer with the Navy. He took the offer and has earned his rank with a lot of hard-won fights, both in the literal and figurative sense. Since arriving on the Battlestar Genesis, Jameson has taken a promotion from Captain to Colonel, selected to serve as the Executive Officer on board. At 34 years of age, he would be considered the youngest Colonel to serve the line since the First Cylon War and the second-youngest Battlestar Executive Officer in history. He held the post for just over 100 days before taking a voluntary demotion back to Captain in order to better serve the ship and its crew.

Poetic Prose

But now the whole Round Table is dissolved
Which was an image of the mighty world;
And I, the last, go forth companionless,
And the days darken round me, and the years,
Among new men, strange faces, other minds."
-Tennyson, Morte d' Athur
