His father Michael is originally from Dublin, married Janet Weston whilst working and living in what used to be the London area of the UK. Both are accomplished Botanists and now live in a remote area of Southern Ireland where they are involved with studying the adaptability of new plant life to Earth's ecosystem.
Although more than intelligent enough to follow in their footsteps, Jarered never really found that line of study interesting enough to hold his attention. He found he was more at home tinkering with and later maintaining the equipment his parents used for their work. He also took an interest in the ancient martial arts of the far east, studying what he could on his parents computer and also acquiring rare books where he could.
When he decided to apply for Starfleet Academy he decided to go for the Engineering route. As his training and studies progressed he found a natural aptitude for "improvisational" repair and also began specializing in the maintaining of the various weapons and tactical systems.
He graduated from Starfleet with the rank of Lieutenant JG. He spent a year working for the Engineering Corp on Earth after which time he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. Owing to the continuing trouble with the Klingons, Starfleet had enacted a new decree which allowed talented officers below the rank of Captain to take full command of a starship, albeit smaller class ships like the Steamrunner & Nova classes at first. Jarered was offered command of the Steamrunner class USS Tuireann and was allowed, in an unprecedented move, to pick his own crew, although unbeknown to him his Father had "arranged" for this by calling in some old favors and
He is currently commanding the USS Tuireann and is assigned to Engineering duties aboard Serenity Station as well as using his ship for escort/defense when required.
While Jarered is an imposing figure at 6ft in height he is by no means large, the best way to describe him would be wiry. He excelled in his physical courses due to the level of fitness he has maintained. Although he can be loud at time his manners are generally good and he is able to organize those around him with relative ease. His only weakness is his self organization, his ability to organize others is fine, he himself though, it seems, prefers chaos to order and bizarrely seems to work better for it. He has had the importance of being organized stressed to him so whether this comes to be a hindrance in the future is yet to be seen.
