So, since we now have over 10,000 comments on the damn HSAU, it seems about time to talk character. I'll keep this updated as a guide of sorts, for people to reference when they want to play. Here is the trick: You need to keep an eye on it! I might miss things. I will miss things. But if there's something about a character you need added, leave it as a comment.
And for now, write up bios and I'll add them because Jesus Christ there are a lot of characters here.

General Life Timeline:
Tell me who I am inevitably missing:
Name: Christine Chapel
Birthdate (w/o year): May 20th
Family: No siblings.
Mother - Number One. (Actual name impossible to say.)
Father - José Tyler. Basically this. Had an First Officer/Navigator relationship with Number One after a sex planet thing and knocked her up. Really had no interest in Number One outside being close friends (think canon Uhura/Chekov relationship. "I VILL HELP YOU CARRY YOUR SHOPPING!") Loves his daughter, but feels like a kid himself.
Not-really-stepdad - Pike
Not-really-stepbrother - Oh Pavel
Close Friends: Spock is now basically her other half, but Caroline is her best friend out of everyone. She hasn't known her as long as Kiki has, but considers herself as close (hasn't talked to her in a while because of her undying love for Spockykins.)
Did love Kiki at a time, and hated him for a while for being so distant. Loves Pashy like a sheep-haired brother.
Important Traumatic Events: Her grandmother. Hated being a crap Betazoid. Was in space for a long period of her life, with romantic books for company when her parents were on duty. Was a bit of a slut until she met Spock, but she's over it now.
Important AWESOME Events: Getting *~*~*~*~*MARRIED*~*~*~*~* !!!!
General Life Timeline:
In space with her mother until she was nine, then her mother retired to Earth.
Dated Kiki once and lost her virginity to him (and he did to her, I forgot to put that in his biog), alongside every other person ever.
MET SPOCK AND THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE SIX 1/4 VULCAN 1/8 BETAZOID BABIES WHO ARE GOING TO BE SERIOUSLY FUCKED UP EMOTION WISE.
Name: Pavel Andreievich Chekov
Birthdate (w/o year): 14th Feb
Family: Father is Andrei Victorevitch Chekov, now retired as head of the Bratva and living under another (undisclosed) name. Pavel was brought up by his father & his father's unmarried sister, Elena Victorovna Chekov. His mother, Marta, died when Pavel was younger and he is an only child. Worth noting is that Marta had cancer, and did not die as a result of the Chekov's gangland operations.
Close Friends: Weeeell, he worries about that. He's closest to Kiki, since they're all TWOO WUV an' all, but he gets on well will Carrie and is okay with Chrissie and is good friends with Scotty, although they haven't seen much of one another lately.
Important Traumatic Events: Getting kidnapped at 13 years old, killing his kidnapper, shooting a guy, shooting another guy, escaping to the US only to have his foster parents killed by enemies of the Bratva, going on the run, getting ceti-slugged by Marla at Prom and nearly dying... I think that's his lot.
Important AWESOME Events: Coming to the US to go to EA at the age of 14. Since then: making friends with Hikaru, watching films with Hikaru, going to the beach with Hikaru, kissing Hikaru, going to New York, having SEX WITH HIKARU, and he secretly quite enjoyed his trip to Copernicus once he got used to Kiki not being there.
General Life Timeline: Horrible lonely priviledged misery until he arrived in the US, followed by non-stop excitement and the sudden discovery of a truly fearsome libido.
Name: Elizabeth May Dehner
Age: 18 (physically stuck at 17)
Birthdate (w/o year): August 26
Family: Gerald and Marie Dehner, both researchers for starfleet mostly on planet but very busy, no siblings
Close Friends: Close is relative term for her. She dates Marla but doesn't trust her. She's frenemies with Gary and sort of friends with Vincent after helping him when Gary took off. Also has a sorta vicious older vamp who watches her back most of the time.
Important Traumatic Event: Became a vampire late July before senior year. Was changed on accident by Miller her then boyfriend. He freaked and left town. She hated him for it and the change and bloodlust was so awful that she killed him next chance she got (late September). She has killed six people, Miller, a hunter and 4 victims including her first.
Important AWESOME Events: Getting Gary and Vince back together at prom, Sex with Marla, She would also classify her kills are awesome events, especially the hunter, Graduating in the top ten of her class.
General Life Timeline:
Born and raised in San Francisco. Was never close to her parents, she was raised by a nanny primarily. Has been terrorizing(and being terrorized by) Gary since he moved there in gradeschool. Used to get along with people better when she was younger but has always been a bit of a queen bee. Spent most of highschool being prissy and a bit conceited. Had a couple friends in her year who she bossed around until the change, but she withdrew after becoming a vampire. Intends to join Starfleet eventually, but plans to head out east and get a degree first in the meantime because of their vampire issues.
Name: Vincent Robert (pronounced Ro-bare) DeSalle
Birthdate (w/o year): 12 March
Mother; Nicole DeSalle. (Maiden name Gessard). Living at home.
Father; Anton DeSalle. In space, doing the Starfleet thing.
Cousin; (On his mother's side) Jean-Luc Picard.
Gary Mitchell. Since he was turned and stopped his long time friendship with Kirk. He trailed around the Mitchell-Kirk group, but was never that interested in the pranks they pulled. Admired Mitchell for being strong and confident and (perhaps too quickly) jumped on the chance to be his protector when he was turned.
Liz. Counts her as a companion. Isn't very sure what constitutes a friend.
Important Traumatic Events:
On-and-off again relationship with Gary.
Been hospitalized due to low blood pressure a lot.
Recurring nightmares about wanting to be turned, but when he is in the dreams, Gary leaves him because he can't feed from him anymore.
Can't decide whether being with Gary for eternity is worth the pain it will cause Gary.
Would never take Marla's offer because it's not a case of being turned. It's who does it. And that person has to be Gary.
Important AWESOME Events:
Going to Copernicus. As much as he bitched, he enjoyed time away from the responsibility of looking after Gary.
Being told he's smart.
Getting good, solid grades after hard work.
Being told by Archer he's going to walk the Starfleet entrance exams.
General Life Timeline:
Moved from France when he was fifteen. No accent because French is a dead language and he spoke Standard throughout his education in Calais. And only rarely French at home.
Worked at the Kindergarten since he moved, helping out with foreign language students (his cousin who came over at the same time) and those who need a little extra help. His mother is an administrator at the school, so she put in a good word.
Started to become Gary's donor when he was seventeen.
Name: Richard "Ricky" Langley Ensyne
Birthdate (w/o year): Sept. 3
Mother: Elayna Ensyne, sexual assault advocate, public speaker and lecturer, usually away at conferences.
Father: Johannes Victor, deep sea researcher. More of a sperm donor than a father, though Ricky has met him a couple of times.
Sister: Nene (unless I already named her and forgot...) (13). Scary.
Close Friends: Caroline McKenna, whom he calls "Carr." They dated at one point, but it ended amicably. Kevin Riley, for the past 3 years. To some extent Sulu and Chekov.
Important Traumatic Events: Highschool in general. Enterprise Academy still intimidates Ricky, as the proportion of weird there far exceeds what he hopes for in an educational experience. Also, considering the IQ of most of his class it makes him feel even more inadequate than usual, as Ricky's only smart, not genius level. Being generally clumsy and cursed with interesting luck, he tends to end up in the hospital a lot.
Important AWESOME Events: Kev Riley agreeing to go out with him. Managing to be useful occasionally.
General Life Timeline: Moved to San Francisco with mom and baby sister when he was four, entered EA at age 14. Plans to enter StarFleet as a security officer.
Birthdate (w/o year): July 10
Her (step)dad: http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Unnamed_USS_Enterprise_(NCC-1701)_personnel#Assistant_engineer He totally has no name.
Her mother is Neras: http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Unnamed_Orions_(22nd_century)#Orion_slave_girl
Close Friends: Scotty, Jan Rand, Jim Kirk, Len McCoy, Chrissie Chapel
Important Traumatic Events: Childhood spent on Orion was pretty bad. When she was moved to Earth she was teased mercilously by her peers. Trying to fit in she painted herself beige and dyed her hair red. She was teased even more. She ditched the pain, but kept the hair and now it's become her favorite part of herself. Her mom died shortly after they arrived on Earth when she was 11.
Important AWESOME Events: Leaving Orion and moving to Earth with her stepdad and mom. Getting into EA. Finally meeting someone who can listen to her rant about SCIENCE and who has an open mind concerning sex.
General Life Timeline: Spent childhood on Orion. Smuggled out with her mother by her stepdad and moved to Earth when she was 10. Spent four years studying anything she could get her hands on. Got into EA when she was 15 (as a sophomore) and feels like an outsider for not having had started freshman year with everyone else. Despite having been teased she trusts everyone. Inspired by her stepdad to join Starfleet, and plans on officially taking his last name before entering the Academy.
Name: Antonio Bernard Giotto
Birthdate (w/o year): December 12
-Father, Nicolas Giotto (age 7o)
-Mother, Marietta Giotto (age 58)
-Brother, Rinaldo Giotto (age 39)
-Daughter, Lucy Chiara Giotto (age 7)
-Son, Benjamin Rafael Giotto (deceased; would be aged 4)
-ex-wife, Vivian Green
-Grandparents, Bernard and Willa Giotto, three nephews
-three sisters, unnamed (deceased)
-son/godson, Anthony (aged 18)(Anthony is actually Tony's biological child, as he acted as sperm donor after his closest childhood friend was discovered to be sterile; the information is on a need-to-know basis and as far as anyone is concerned Anthony is Marcus's child. However, he's the spitting image of Tony when he was that age, so uh, yeah, it's gonna come up if we do the summer edition.)
Chris Pike (they have a bromance and once very-nearly-almost did it); Jon Archer, a former instructor at the academy and his boss; Dave Galloway, his former assistant chief of Security from the Potentate and Lucy's godfather, who relocated to Earth along with half their force after his discharge; Vivi Green, his ex-wife and one of his childhood best friends, also the mother of his daughter; Caroline McKenna, love of his life
Important Traumatic Events: -His parents had three daughters after he and his brother were born; the first two were stillborn and the third never developed fully and died before she was a month old. (his parents decided not to try anymore after that because it was killing Mari physically and emotionally and THAT is why she only had two kids.)
-When he was seven, on a ship going to Vulcan with his family, the ship was boarded by SPACE PIRATES and he was kidnapped because as the son of a highly respected diplomat and the grandson of one of the most economically influential men in Italy he was considered a walking fortune. (being rescued by Starfleet Security was what initially interested him in joining Security; his Father's outer calm while negotiating his release as a distraction was what led him to study emotional control on Vulcan.)
-Raised partly on Vulcan. That... kinda covers it.
-Went to a betazed wedding at age eleven with his father's delegation. Saw his brother naked and met Lwaxana Troi for the first time.
-At age 25, then boyfriend Ben Lowery proposed; that same day, the two were assigned to a landing party. The party was attacked by natives, unbeknownst to them, and Ben moved at the last second, taking a hit that had originally been aimed at Tony. Because of interference, they were unable to get him up to the ship and he bled out on the surface. Tony blames himself (for bringing Ben along, for being the one aimed at, and for not knowing enough to be able to save him in time.) He took a month of personal leave as a result and returned to Earth, which is when he and Vivi met and married.
-an accident involving the death of the child of the ruling family on a first contact mission led to his discharge; despite that Starfleet cleared him of any fault he blames himself for it.
-After his discharge, he and Vivi's marriage started to suffer. They still tried though, and had a son, Benji, who was killed at four months old in a crash that also nearly killed Lucy. He and Vivi split for good shortly after that. He doesn't like to talk about it.
Important AWESOME Events:
-Lucy. Nuff said.
-Getting into Starfleet
-ironicly, the SPACE PIRATE incident, because it led to his eventual career choice
-becoming a teacher at EA
-meeting Chris and realizing that Dave Galloway is undyingly loyal to him
General Life Timeline:
-entered Starfleet Academy at age 18 under command track
-graduated at rank of Lt. jr grade, was promoted to full lieutenant within the year. Served his first tour on the patrol ship Fission Chips.
-after returning from his leave following the Ben incident, he was promoted to Lt. Commander, due to his excellent control of the situation (he remembers it differently) and transferred to the slightly-less-cramped Illustrious Potentate as Assistant Chief of Security.
-after a classic noodle incident, which he fudged the report on, the current Chief took early retirement and he got the job. He made Galloway his assistant chief and this lasted three years before his discharge. In that time, he had the best record in the entire fleet for number of crew deaths.
-As part of the terms of his honorary discharge, he was made a full commander. He relocated to Earth, where he tried to console his failing marriage with Vivi. After the divorce, he took a job at EA teaching and the rest, shall we say, is history.

Having marriage forced upon him and not even having a chance at proposing the way he had planned.
