Took longer then I thought to be able to sit down and write up his bckground info
Name: Deacon Rothchild
Deacon looks like any number of scruffy mechanics you see in the back of a firefly or in a non Alliance space dock. He has shoulder length black hair that would look nice if he ever did anything with it. He is usually in the middle stages between having a beard and clean shaven, varying shades of scruff as he trims it when it begins to itch, but doesnít try to completely shave it clean. His best quality is his eyes, a deep azure blue. Most women who see them wish they could put those eyes in someone else, given his usual need to clean up. He usually wears his miniaturized armor under a set of dirty cover all, so he doesnít make them a mess, but is ready for any surprises, a little hard to move around. If a girl could clean him up heíd look pretty respectable and if she kept him from talking would fit right in with the society types, if you had enough to blackmail him into going.
Deacon Rothchild, of the Osirus Rothchilds, has been a bit of a black sheep for the family. He is very smart, but he seemed to lack some of the social graces the rest of his family had naturally. His natural talent for fixing or building things, while impressive, didnít fit too well with the familyís social climbing, so an arrangement was made. The family gave him access to the family accounts to do with what he wished, as long as he kept clear of the society circles and tried to keep out of the cortex news reports for anything questionable. He rarely if ever introduces himself as Deacon Rothchild, usually just Deacon, and brushes off attempts at getting his last name, or says Smith.
As far as the crew is concerned, he was already on the ship when they were hired, working on the systems, making sure everything was up and running. Depending on how much work the crew did before they signed up on the ship they might have heard of him, he was a fairly accomplished ship Mechanic and during the war kept a number of Browncoat shuttles running. He wouldnít set foot on them when they left, but he was a safe one to go to for an emergency fix usually only charging costs. He didnít agree with the alliance, but wasnít going to take up real arms against them.
Deacon doesnít have many contacts on the shadier side of things, but his name might occasionally come up along the lines of ďthe engineer who is looking for a block aid runner,Ē though what he actually wants it for is up for speculations.

They are women, they are beautiful and he doesnít see a reason not to be attached to them. Granted his unilateral attraction might cause some issues, but he just canít help himself sometimes.
He wonít harm innocent people, directly or indirectly. Stealing credits from a bank or alliance payroll is fine, medicines from a colony suffering from a plague is not.
Exploitation is not okay, under any circumstance.
Corrupt officials should not get away with it, regardless of what the law says.
Straight shooter (minor)
He has never been much of a liar, and while he knows sometimes there are things people donít need to be informed of, but those can be dodged by misdirection instead of lying. If you lie, itís because youíre not smart enough to work around it.
Hooked (Major) (smoker)
He has spent the better part of his life working on ships as a mechanic on the rim worlds, sometimes you just need a smoke to calm your nerves, and once you start itís hard to stop. He is up to two packs a day at this point.
He has a rugged look about him and the smell of smoke makes him easy to remember. Not to mention his occasional lack of tact when it comes to conversations. Most people who talk to him for any length of time remember him.
Talented (Tech engineering)(major) since he was little he has always had a knack for technology, he just understood how circuits worked and he picked up on the advanced classes quickly.
Math whiz(minor) If it involved numbers he has had an easy time understanding it. He just needed to get a look at the problem and it seemed like everything just clicked before his eyes.
Moneyed (major) It is not something he has shared with the crew, but his family is fairly wealthy. He is given access to the family fortune as long as he doesnít make appearances at the social functions of the inner planets. A deal he is more than willing to make.
Friends in high places (minor) His family is willing to use its influence to help him out, as long as he continues with the arrangement agreed upon. They havenít yet had to fight over anything since what they want him to avoid heíd gladly do.
