SHORT HISTORY Born on Rigel V, Rafe is the only son born of a brief contract between Nicole O'Dea and Col. Doug Brady. Rafe has never lived in any one spot for very long, his childhood spent traveling with his xenobiologist mother who had many assignments throughout the known galaxies. His father, visiting infrequently between his Exploration trips is essentially a stranger to his son. Entering the FSP Academy at the age of 14, Rafe exhibited a penchant for mathmatics and was drawn to the construction engineering field. The Academy provided much needed stability and discipline, though Rafe continued to exhibit his rebellious nature in fighting and pranks. After graduating, against some of the instructors better judgement of unleashing this "whirlwind" on the general public, Rafe spent 3 years planet hopping from construction project to construction project. He has broken many hearts with his love 'em and leave 'em attitude, not letting any woman get too close. Whether it be from a fear of commitment or trying to find a true soul-mate is not clear. Problems with authority figures have kept him from advancing in rank to Senior Project Manager, but his inventive vision and unique capabilities in design and construction brought him to the attention of the FSP Council who handpicked him for the Pern assignment. Though handsomely compensated in an ironclad contract, he chafes at some of the restrictions this assignment have put on him. Shortly after arriving on Pern and discovering the local quickal, he got properly snockered, made a bet with a couple of Ensigns and "borrowed" the captains air-sled. Even though all Offworlders of his ilk were restricted to the Southern Continent, Rafe promptly flew the air-sled on an erratic course and ended up crashing it on the Telgar Plains. Rescued by sweepriders he ended up in the Telgar Weyr Infirmary. Swathed from head to toe in bandages he awoke after several days to the soft voice and ministrations of an infirmary volunteer. Chastened by this close brush with death he vowed to himself to change. Over the next couple of days he looked forward to visits and care by the nameless young woman who seemed to be able to still the chaos that had always boiled in the depths of his heart and soul. However, she was too soon gone to attend other patients and other duties elsewhere in this strange place he found himself. Early one morning two MP's arrived to collect him and return him to Alpha Base, where after being attended by the med techs and machines, he emerged not too much worse for his adventure, except for the piece of behind his superiors chewed and the resulting dock in his pay for this latest escapade. Chagrined he accepted his punishment and eagerly resumed his duties, it would take a long time to pay for the damaged air-sled. However, he was soon back to his happy go lucky self in no time at all, completing the construction of the weyr all the time wondering if he would ever get to actually meet the young woman whose presence had calmed yet intrigued him.
