Personal History Russell is an engineering prodigy. He has a natural affinity for technology, and engines in particular. He's also lazy, preferring to use that affinity for shortcuts unless a project really interests him.

After he left formal education, Russell found himself at a loss of what to do with his life. A friend had applied Starfleet academy and persuaded Russell to do likewise. His natural intelligence was enough to get him in, but he only lasted a couple of months before falling foul of the Academy's substance abuse policies. He lasted long enough to be recognised as an extremely talented engineer and one who could have gone far.

After his dismissal from the academy, Russell drifted around for a while, taking odd jobs on a variety of ships until he found his way to Risa. That was his kind of place. The next eight months were a blur of alcohol, drugs and a string of partners. The lifestyle tool it's toll, and one night he met a trader in a bar, who was in desperate need of an engineer. That man, Ira Sorensen, took Russell on and the two began a working partnership that paid huge dividends. The young engineer not only kept Sorensen's who, the Galloway, running, he also boosted the engine efficiency enough to improve profitability significantly.

Russell still partakes in illicit substances whenever possible, although his habits have been tempered somewhat now he's got work to hold his interest.
