Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Ian joined Starfleet a few years late, spending three years after high school as a professional model and actor. Starfleet was an afterthought, something he never thought about until he played a Starfleet officer in a holonovel and became fascinated with the role.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
Looks and charm. Lets face it, Ian's a model and an actor and looks the part. Physically fit and devilishly handsome, not to mention there remains a bit of celebrity.
Arrogance. He's a semi-face actor with good reviews and a moderately sized though devoted fan base. It does get to his head at times.
|Ambitions||To make a name for himself as an officer and a leader, and of course to eventually win an oscar.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Acting. Ian still acts, and actually took a 6 month leave of absence to appear as a young Zephram Cochrane in the holonovel "Flight of the Phoenix". It was a big budget epic, and his performance was widely praised, the novel itself was panned.
Singing and rhythm guitar. While he's never appeared in a musical, Ian has an excellent singing voice and occasionally will drop into rock and jazz clubs where he will sing and play rhythm on his vintage 1953 Fender Telecaster.
|Personal History||Ian comes from a wealthy family of import-exporters that dates all the way back to the 19th century British trading firms in Hong Kong. He has a very distant Chinese ancestor from the 19th century who was the mistress of a Scottish clipper ship captain.
The rest of the Dunross family are in private shipping, though nothing so dirty as actual freight moving, rather they own one of the largest insurance and custom brokerages on Earth. Ian grew up in hush society, so getting exposure for his acting ambitions was easy, and his talent took care of the rest.
Six-yeawrs-ago he played the role of a Starfleet officer and worked under the guidance of two retired captains to get the mannerisms and slang right. After filming completed, he attended the academy.
He is most famous for playing the German Pilot Manfred von Richthofen in the epic "The Red Baron", for which was nominated for, but didn't win, best actor.
