|Personal History||Liam was born to his Betazed mother and Human father in Yorkshire, England. He and his brother Andrew lived there until they were 12 and their parents decided to move to Betazed for their mother to take a job and spend more time with their Betazed grandparents. Liam did not embrace the Betazed culture at first; it took him time to settle down and embrace the culture and peoples gifts. Andrew took to it like a duck out of water. Interestingly out of this it was Liam who went into counseling. Both brothers dreamed of going to the stars and both enrolled in Starfleet.
Upon joining his new role as Chief Counselor, Liam has had a shock in that he discovered his father's affair many years ago and the fact he has a secret half brother Declan. Declan seemly hates Liam and is currently showing some concerning behaviour.
Also Liam started a relationship with the chief Engineer Haku. It is challenging in that she has some trust issues but developed into something deeper. However due to many reasons the two split up. They drifted back together many times on and off, Liam never quite being able to part with her and each other always having their backs.
Haku rescued Liam when members of a mirror universe kidnapped him, tortured and tested on him to try create abilities Liam in this universe did not have. Liam made a major faux parr upon Haku getting him back to this universe. Whether their paths will cross again, and Liam still be in one piece after it remains to be seem!
Afterward Liam took a hiatus from Starfleet and returned to Betazed where he did some healing to get over the experiences and began working in a more diplomatic role planetside.
When his mother attempted to make an arranged marriage between sacred houses, Liam refused and left for Starfleet once more. He found and applied for a chief diplomatic position onboard DS5.
After a while the call for counselling returned pulling him back and the CO offered him the role of Chief counselor. And a little later the call of wunderlust was back in Liam's life, him realising he missed exploring and being on a ship. He chose to transfer ready to explore the universe once more!
Onboard the Nogura Liam experienced a return to the nightmare MU world being kidnapped a second time along with Seklars kids to hold him hostage. Commander Seklar and Danae rescued them and this time his evil counterpart expired.
Liam and Danae started a relationship but it never reached the second bond of her species. She left to go home and despite proposing and getting engaged this relationship didn't make it due to distance.
Newly single once more Liam could continued on his search to find love while navigating the new Poseidon station that all nogura crew were transferred to after the Collector mission. After a while the right girl fell into his life in Kaylee Serra.
They quickly worked out there was a deeper connection. Having been in the same social circle as kids Liam had been dared to kiss Kaylee at a party. This created a bond between them that they only worked out upon getting together. There relationship deepened quickly and Liam and Kaylee decided to elope in secret to avoid a big Betaziod fuss.
Liam is requested by persons unknown to captain a runabout to a remote location in the briar patch. This turns out to be Deep space 21, where Captain Haistro decides to offer him a job.
|Service Record||Liam participated in a 6 month Klingon/Star fleet exchange program with a view of trying to find a way to make his profession more acceptable in their eyes and get this culture to see his service as a good one, immediately after leaving the academy. It was quite an eye opener. He knows a little Klingon and did engage in some Bat’leth training and came away with and interest in martial arts
