STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES (Required: 2 Weaknesses Minimum) :
Gir Quee is a very empathetic person, which helps better understand people, but also can draw him into conflicts which he usually is desperate to avoid. He is usually described as being accepting, trusting, and stable. But because he wants to keep the peace, he tends to gloss over painful details by simplifying problems and minimizing things that upset him, rather than confront them directly.
From a professional standpoint, Gir often tries to get into his opponent's head as much as possible, which is generally helped by his natural empathy. But that also creates problems with him becoming too attached to people who he might have to send out on risky missions that could likely result in their deaths.
Allegedly of Alderaanian stock, Gir Quee is a slightly above average-looking man in nearly all aspects, which has led to a little personal vanity. He is slightly more toned and muscular than the average man due to his military training emphasizing physical fitness, though by no means is he physically hardened or capable as the typical ground-pounding warrior.He typically has a calm, relaxed, and unassuming manner, but that is more derived from his introspective nature rather than genetics.When not in uniform, Gir Quee typically wears a long black jacket, which he believes is not only stylish but utilirian, containing my pockets into which he secrets various items.
Gir Quee grew up on the world of Hast from settlers of distant Alderaanian descent.His father was a ship captain of some repute, running a small independent shipping company consisting of a single bulk freighter with his wife, who handled the business aspects of the operation.One day, while Gir Quee was in his early teens, the freighter simply did not come back.Rumor eventually reached Hast that the starship was captured by pirates and the crew executed.Fortunately for Gir, his Mon Calamari neighbors adopted him as their own.His adoptive Mon Calamari parents, Onoma and Dismet, raised him in a warm environment with their biological son, Salmakk, who was of similar age.
Upon leaving mandatory schooling, Quee took up working on the local bluewater vessels to get away just far enough from home, but without ever being too far away.However, he got into a fight with a well-connected sailor on the ship he was working on, which blacklisted him from many similar jobs on Hast.Deciding to reconnect with his roots, Gir Quee joined the Galactic Republic Navy in hopes of becoming the person who could have saved his parents back in the day.Gir Quee has had little experience practically commanding vessels (outside of his stay at the Naval Academy), and thus is often engaged in research about all things space-going.
This eventually led him to link up again with his brother, Salmakk, as he took the reigns of Lucerne Labs. The two brothers now head the company as it transitions from a start-up to a full-fledged company, with Salmakk working on much of the design work and Gir taking care of most of the external work, especially the political connections.
Gir served in the Republic navy for several years, starting out as a captain of a small pocket starfighter carrier before working his way up the ranks, first as a captain on assault frigate, and then as a commodore over the 1st Beta Line. The Netherworld event wrecked more chaos into the ranks of the Republic military. Gir found himself as a general in the new rank structure, and found himself thrust into the leadership roles of several Republic research and development projects. Shortly after commanding a Republic fleet at the Terminus Station, he found himself being promoted to Grand Admiral after Friedrich Stahlmann's retirement.
