( = ) I don't have regular/anytime access to a tablet so most of my art will be submitted in traditional formats. I try to do my apps and such in digital (using a friend's tablet) when I can.

(+ Optimist) (+ Confident) (- Sensitive) (- Stubborn)
(+ Strong willed) (+ Passionate) (- Independent) (- Somewhat Naive)
Carter is generally an optimistic and confident person. He always tries to look on the bright side of things, taking challenges head on with his headstrong attitude, making him a rock for others to hold on to. However, this confidence also makes him quite naive as he tries to solve problems that are beyond fixing, and it might take a while to shake him due to his stubbornness.
He likes to have fun and take time to relax, whether that means staring at the vast space outside for hours on end or submersing himself in a book. Sometimes he can get a little carried away in work, or in play, as he is a very passionate person. His passion leads him to invest much time and emotion into everything he does, and with great care. He likes to surround himself with company and friends as it serves as a social and emotional comfort to him, and he fears that people dislike him or take spite of him.
When people disrespect his passion, he can get frustrated relating to his sensitive spots. He also gets sensitive when people try to pry into his secrets, or reveal his arm sleeves to see what's beneath. Under further persistence, Carter will become irritated and annoyed, and will often isolate himself from the person to cool down. He manages to control his anger quite well and knows his limits. It's not that he can't fight you, it's just that he usually doesn't want to. Unless you provoke him on purpose.

History: Growing up, Carter never had..."real parents." He was raised by his brother and sister on the ship, and never met, seen, or heard of his parents on board ever. He knows very little of them from what his siblings would occasionally sputter out. Dad was controlling and strict, says Mike. And Mom was just unhappy, said Becca. Being raised by Mike and Becca (and her boyfriend 'uncle' Aaron), Carter wasn't very well disciplined. Mike was the oldest, so he was always gone working to better provide for the family. Becca was still apprenticing as a professor, but could be home for most of the time and did most of the cooking and cleaning. Aaron played with Carter as a kid and really engaged with him, but had troubles disciplining him and always left him off the hook. However, to teach him some level of responsibility, Aaron gave him Cole (Sentret) at the age of seven.
Because of this environment, Carter never grasped the idea of rules at his age, seeing them as mere challenges he had to break, like some video game. In elementary school, he was seen as nothing more than a class clown to his teachers, but was often bullied by the other kids for not having "real parents." At age twelve, Carter retaliated and fought back. It was then when his record of trouble really started. He was excluded from most of his school for being "weird" and hotheaded. This social rejection made him give up on school and he did whatever he wanted to, facing little discipline at home since Becca and Mike were too busy to handle him and Aaron didn't want to hurt the kid.
His crimes were petty, going from truancy, to thievery, to vandalism. The ship punished him by forcing him to work in custodial and delivery to teach him respect and discipline but this soon wore off as Carter would continue to cause trouble in during his work; i.e. dumping trash over the floors or reading mail that didn't belong to him. He was beginning to become a hassle and quite disliked on the ship when one of his teachers saw something in him. Tenacity. So the teacher encouraged Carter to enroll in a battle program and there he found something he excelled at, something positive. Continuing to work on this skill, he won a small contest within his age group and won a Pawniard, which he promptly named Tetsu.
Although battling taught Carter many skills and life lessons, the continued exclusion from his peers caused him to revert back into the comfort of his truant freedom. Entering high school, he found a bad crowd and made some poor decisions. He joined a few "gangs" (shady group of kids who considered themselves a posse) and got into a lot of fights. He hit his growth spurt and he gained a muscular build, working with this to become stronger and bigger. Seeing this, the ship sent him to go work with an Electrician instead of the usual custodial work for punishment.
Within a few weeks of work, Carter found his place. He felt good helping maintain the ship, and he did good at it too. He noticed significant changes over the course of his work in how people treated him. His peers started to forgive him, and the other electricians started to respect him. Before his life could turn into a mess, Carter took his life by the reigns and turned it around. He began studying to become and mechanic and work for the Guardians. He wanted to help people, to make up for his past mistakes. Finally graduating, Carter was ready for his mechanic apprenticeship. However, with his criminal record, it wasn't going to be that easy.
For a few years, Carter had to be put under steady watch while working and was put under heavy schooling to test his lack of schooling over the years. After finally proving himself capable of working for himself, he was offered a position at age twenty-two and has been working it ever since. But. His job is going to change forever, whether he likes it or not.
