Personality & Traits

General Overview Taylor is a marine through and through. He's come up through the ranks through fitreps and recommendations of his commanding officers. Entering the corps straight from home he wasn't sure what to expect at first and was just trying to get away. Hide from his brothers and his father. But the corps adopted him and his CO's turned into the man he wanted to be.
Taylor most of the time is shows very little emotion. He's features depict a hardass of an officer. Most of that was due to the fact that he was pushing everyone and anyone away from him that he thought he could hurt. Living in the shadow of the barn fire and the death of his first love he was sure he wasn't going to let that happen to anyone else, ever again. That plan served him well for the first few years of his career, and then he was assigned to a starship and met Julian Winterstorm. Try as he might Julian broke through Taylors defenses.
Now the two are married and Taylor's still the hard core marine, he just has a different objective when it comes to his family. Keep them away from Julian.
Strengths & Weaknesses Taylor has all the typical strengths of a straight forward straight-laced Marine. He’s confident, courage, fearless in combat situations. He’s a true blue, marine. As he’s matured through the ranks he has begun to take on a leadership role and shows a keen eye for combat tactics. Taylor Price is efficient in hand to hand combat and infantry combat strategies. There are some characteristics of Taylor’s Marine makeup that make him an excellent marine but not necessarily a great person. He’s very untrusting of new people and this tends to make him a loner. He’s independent and strong-willed which only fuels that loner mentality. He can be withdrawn and is sometimes socially awkward because of it. He keeps to himself and is often unwilling to open up to new people.
Ambitions Taylor's only ambitions are to stay as far away from his family as possible. He doesn't talk to them, avoids communications with them and refuses to allow them anywhere near Julian. Still terrified that they will do to Julian what they did to his first love Taylor refuses to allow that to happen.
Hobbies & Interests Taylor plays guitar and enjoys reading. He's enjoys swimming and is an excellent horseman.

Personal History Taylor grew up in Oklahoma on the family farm the youngest of five brothers, his father was a Starfleet officer and his mother a stay at home mom, the family farm was worked by the brothers and a few farmhands. Taylor realized very young that he was different from his brothers, but feared to be picked on and worked twice as hard as they did around the farm so that there was no questioning his sexual orientation.

Taylor was 17 when he fell in love for the first time, a handsome farmhand who was just 18 years old. It was an amazing summer full of passion, but his eldest brother Nathaniel got wise to the relationship. One night while Taylor and his lover were in the stables, Nathaniel caught them making love, an angry argument erupted between the brothers and it came to blows. In the scuffle, candles were knocked into the hay and a fire spread. Nathaniel ran locking his brother and lover inside the stables.

Taylor was able to free himself and his boyfriend but not before the shirt caught on fire, scaring his shoulder and side. While in the hospital Taylor learned that the farmhand had drowned in the farm’s pond and his brother had told his secret. Although a mother’s love is strong the family disowned him and Taylor left for the Marine Corp after being released for the hospital.

As a marine Taylor Price excelled in infantry and combat tactic, he got a full back tattoo to cover the scar on his back and stayed quiet. Developing a reputation as a hardass and a hardcore marine. No one needed to know his past and he never went home.
