Personality & Traits

General Overview Dobbs is all business. He strictly observes Starfleet protocols at all times. He is extremely professional - he would never contradict his commanding officer in front of the crew, though he will voice his concerns in private. He has high expectations of his subordinates, but he isn't harsh in his dealings with them. He will patiently hear their side, take any recommendations they offer, but once Dobbs has given an order he expects it to be followed without question. If someone isn't fulfilling their duties in an acceptable way, Dobbs does not chew them out in front of everyone. Instead, he will speak with them privately - once - and make it clear to them how Dobbs expects their performance to improve. If these improvements aren't made, Dobbs will give the job to someone who can do it.
Strengths & Weaknesses Dobbs is a very private person. His quarters are sparsely decorated - when he comes aboard, he has exactly one bag.
Ambitions Serving aboard the PHOENIX is his first ExO assignment.
Hobbies & Interests In his private time, he studies military history, enjoys physical activities like mountain climbing or hiking, and is fond of flight-sim holodeck programs.

Personal History Though he doesn't really show it, Dobbs is still deeply mourning the loss of his wife, Amanda, and his daughter, Vera. They were killed during a freak shuttle collision while Dobbs was piloting. Amanda and Veera were killed, and Dobbs was badly injured. Though an official inquiry cleared him of any wrongdoing, Dobbs has felt responsible for their deaths ever since.

In the ten or so years since they died, Dobbs threw himself back into his Starfleet career. He ascended steadily through the ranks, and was present at the Siege of Earth during the Neo-Essentialist crisis, where he took command of his vessel after his captain was incapacitated.
Service Record Dobbs is an experienced pilot, and served as a fighter pilot during the Dominion War.
