Cornelius is amazingly relaxed for someone whose job it is to manage tactical information that affects the lives of thousands. He is slow to answer questions and can appear to be lackadaisical, but his answers are considered and his delays allow him to collate all the information he has to deal with and make sure that when he speaks, it’s concise and correct.
Cornelius grew up in zero-g and like many ‘spacers’ wears augmented exoskeleton supports when working in artificial gravity (like that experienced on the bridges of battleships). He grew up on generation ships in a close-knit community where he developed the exuberance and confidence he displays on the bridge. He is quick to laugh and slow to anger.
However – his voice drops off when he gives the command to fire, or reports another target destroyed. No matter how many victories he chalks up, he feels every death he causes.
His team respect and admire him.
