Background:


General Information
Born to a wealthy family on Solheim in the Btzur Confederacy, Nathaniel was acclaimed as a prodigy in his childhood and quickly attended university at the age of 10 before being picked up by a growing tech firm called Sarsus Incorporated Technologies and created a marketable solvent as an alternative to cryosleep. He gained the attention of Meditech Industries at 16 years old, was given multiple grants to continue his research of plant hybridization and human advancement before being "blacklisted" by his community for illegal live genetic experimentation. His wife divorced him to save face, Meditech let him go but not wanting to lose him completely gave him multiple small grants to afford him a under-the-table subsidiary known as Redgrove GenTech Advancements. He has since taken to space travel with a small crew and a few lab assistants, attempting to unlock the key to merging the biological and mechanical.

Interview
The Galaxy News Network (GNN) conducts an interview with Dr. Nathaniel Redgrove onboard his lab-frigate, concerning his recent expulsion from Meditech Industries, ongoing research and history.

Q: What is your full name?
A: Nathaniel Sigmund Redgrove – my parents had a splendid sense of humor.

Q: Where and when were you born?
A: September 30th, 924 T.R

Q: Who are/were your parents?
A: My father was Sigmund A. Redrove, an industrialist and entrepreneur with a knack for finding what was profitable and what wasn’t. He was a workaholic who worked until the day he died, or would have if not for the shuttle accident. My mother was Elizabeth G. Redgrove, a woman of culture from a wealthy family with a very long history. She had a way about her, her physical presence was instantly identifiable – she would turn heads wherever she went.

Q: Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like?
A: I have both a brother and a sister – Arthur C. Redgrove and Katherine E. Regrove, respectively. I haven’t had much contact with them since our parents death ten years ago, but I remember them both fondly.

Q: Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place and the person/people.
A: What you see is what you get, really. This frigate is both my lab and my home, with little time to waste on the sights and sounds of modern civilization. We live in the wilderness to provide advancements for those who require it.

Q: What is your occupation?
A: Doctor, Scientist and Businessman

Q: To which social class do you belong?
A: I formerly belonged to what could be considered as the “social elite”, as my family has been quite wealthy for many generations. After my…problems with my colleagues in the scientific community, much of my resources have been limited.

Q: Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses?
A: None to my knowledge, albeit a question I wouldn’t normally answer due to its sensitive nature.

Q: Are you right- or left-handed?
A: Left handed – the hand of the devil so they used to say.

Q: What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently?
A: Like some kind of catchphrase? Who gives you these questions?

Q: What do you have in your pockets?
A: My wallet, lighter, a keyring and a time piece.

Q: Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?
A: Are you making fun of me?

Q: How would you describe your childhood in general?
A: Enjoyable but short. I was put into an academic lifestyle at a very young age, so the majority of my childhood was advancing much faster than my colleagues.

Q: What is your earliest memory?
A: Being slapped on the ass by a doctor! It was a very traumatic experience. I’m kidding, but really, I can’t hone in on the specifics for that answer.

Q: How much schooling have you had?
A: Extensive. Age 4 to 18 and my first masters being at 18 years old.

Q: Did you enjoy school?
A: Enjoy? No. Excel? Yes.

Q: Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities?
A: My academic career began the structure of my skills, but application and experience completed it.

Q: While growing up, did you have any role models? If so, describe them.
A: Every scientific mind that predates me is an idol.

Q: While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family?
A: I had little time to spend with them, with the exception of rare holidays or school breaks. With my advancement being what it was, breaks were not often. I remember them all fondly, especially my parents.

Q: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: a rock and roll/movie star – but no really, my parents did not approve.

Q: As a child, what were your favorite activities?
A: Reading, writing and talking. Simple pleasures.

Q: As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display?
A: My mother would tell me that I had a tendency to play with insects that I would find on our estate, examining them, understanding them and then letting them go. It wasn’t until I moved on to animals that she was concerned. Childhood phases (laughs).

Q: As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends, and what were they like?
A: I had a modicum of popularity in school, but it was mostly that kind of academic acknowledgement and the few girls that would ask for their homework to be done for certain favors. There’s a hierarchy of things that go along with such a secluded life.

Q: When and with whom was your first kiss?
A: A co-ed dance when I was 12 and graduating high school. It was pleasant for what it was.

Q: Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity?
A: I assure you that my sex life has been quite satisfactory over the years, the rest is none of your business.

Q: What do you consider the most important event of your life so far?
A: My marriage to Zoe, followed closely behind my research on the hybridization of plant and insect DNA.

Q: What do you consider your greatest achievement?
A: That is another question that would change each time I would be asked, so I’ll say No Comment.

Q: What is your greatest regret?
A: No comment.

Q: What is the most evil thing you have ever done?
A: Evil is very subjective, so you have to be more direct in your questioning if you are implying something underhandedly.

Q: Do you have a criminal record of any kind?
A: None.

Q: When was the time you were the most frightened?
A: I recall being bitten by a dog in my younger years, it seemed to have some form of arthritis that I was attempting to examine – but it bit me for the trouble. No good deed goes unpunished.

Q: What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you?
A: Are we talking about some kind of cliché embarrassment? I figured we as a people were beyond such things.

Q: What is your best memory?
A: Waking up on Solheim, the sun on my face and Zoe laying next to me. It was a time of quiet, which I enjoyed immensely.

Q: Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic?
A: I would like to consider myself an optimist, but I am a realist as well.

Q: What is your greatest fear?
A: Not being able to realize my ambition.

Q: What are your religious views?
A: I consider myself a Rationalist.

Q: What are your political views?
A: I don’t engage in politics. Better for my health.

Q: What are your views on sex?
A: A lovely cluster of pleasure responses and a great past time.

Q: Are you able to kill? Under what circumstances do you find killing to be acceptable or unacceptable?
A: You make killing sound so permanent.

Q: Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love?
A: Absolutely.

Q: What do you believe makes a successful life?
A: Fruition of ambition…success in its raw form.

Q: How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings
A: I think I’ve been very honest with you.

Q: Do you have any biases or prejudices?
A: None.

Q: Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it?
A: It’s a very fine line, I admit. But I am a doctor, not a murderer. Some people seem to forget that at times.

Q: Who or what, if anything, would you die for?
A: I would for Zoe and only her.

Q: In general, how do you treat others? Does your treatment of them change depending on how well you know them, and if so, how?
A: You tell me…and that is technically two questions.

Q: Who is the most important person in your life, and why?
A: Zoe. She is the light of my life, regardless of our current status.

Q: Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why?
