Name: Shawn Foraker
Island of birth: Màti
Age: 24
Preferred occupation: Engineer/R&D
Species: Tassel-Eared Squirrel
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: Black
Height (in feet and inches): 4' 11"

Description: Short and stubby, Shawn is a Tassel-Eared Squirrel with dark grey fur on most of his body, save for the white that covers his chest and underside of his tail. Other accents include thin white rings around his eyes, and a rusty-colored stripe along his back. Good-mannered, but somewhat introverted, he finds more enjoyment in science and tinkering than elaborate social interactions.

Background/history: Shawn grew up near the mountains on Màti as an only child with his parents. As a child, he was always fascinated with technology and computers, sometimes to the detriment of electronic devices in his home when he would take them apart just to see how they worked. In his early teenage years, thanks to access to the web, he discovered the concepts of science fiction in both print and visual media. After discovering a far-dated human television show called "Star Trek," he found the concepts and themes behind the show intriguing. He also found his life's desire in the field of engineering through the myriad of episodes, despite the fact that some of the technology portrayed in the show was readily available on the island.

His parents encouraged his pursuits in science and technology, as well as engineering and mathematics. He attended engineering school and graduated with a degree in computer engineering. During his time in institution, he also dabbled in physics, again inspired by science fiction concepts. He considered re-entering engineering school to pursue a master's degree or perhaps even a doctorate, but Shawn was eager to put his skills to use in the real world and find practical ways to apply them.

Soon enough, news of the Overlord's exploits from Aukate intrigued him. It sounded like the barriers of science were gradually crumbling apart, and the technology there was no doubt on the bleeding edge. Shawn knew he wanted to be part of the exploration of those frontiers. Despite having never left Màti, he sought out recruitment with the Overlord's forces to enter into their engineering division.
