Supplemental Information
System Information
  • Disciplinary File - Geoff's known for getting into the occasional conflict with the rules and authority. Some say he's settling down more recently, but other people who have found themselves on extra unpleasant punishment shifts might remember him.
  • Misspent Youth - Geoff grew up poor on Caprica. He's bused a lot of tables and delivered a lot of room service. Besides that, in his youth he committed plenty of petty crimes. He might've crossed paths with criminals and victims during that time, as well as with people who frequented restaurants, hotels, bars, and nightclubs.
  • Full Colors - Geoff loves to be in on a triad game whenever possible. And he's usually up for anything else involving a wager.
  • Recreational - Geoff is known to usually be up for session drinking and the use of other drugs, possibly even those not permitted for use. As a Caprican, it might not be surprising that he has a certain affinity for partying with substances like opium which are legal on his home colony. But if he's ever been caught doing something like that in his military career, he hasn't been severely punished for it. Yet.
  • Arts - Although Geoff's rough around the edges, he's known to have a certain appreciation for artistic works and the artistic process. But it might not be the erudite appreciation of a university student.

Geoff grew up poor on Caprica city, with an unstable family life owing to an unreliable mother and absent father. Much of his childhood and adolescence were spent resenting the very visible "haves" of the colony, especially when he got to an age to have to work menial jobs and commit petty crimes on the side to make ends meet. He realized at a certain point that he had no chance of getting very far on the path he was on, and every chance of getting in trouble and making life even harder on himself. He joined up with the Marines in the hope of winning more of a future for himself, or at least getting three squares a day and a roof over his head in a somewhat more egalitarian atmosphere. He's had a few disciplinary issues as a result of hardheadedness and a tendency to conflict with authority, but is at last beginning to settle down and learn how to keep a lid on his impulses.

This Marine is about average height, maybe a small amount over but maybe not. His skin is somewhat tan, hair dark enough to be called black. His eyes are dark, too, framed by distinct dark brows. His nose is straight enough to look like it has never yet been broken, and his skin smooth enough to suggest he's fairly young, in his early or mid twenties. His lips are on the full side, jaw defined but neither extremely pointed nor squared. He usually keeps clean-shaven. In terms of physique, he's built slim, though of course with the muscularity that Marine training develops in most front-line riflemen. His right shoulder boasts a large stylized tattoo of a beautiful dark-haired woman, partially framed with roses. He wears his uniform as casually as he can get away with.

  • Phoenix Cross
    • While stranded behind the lines in Axios Province, Picon, between 1/13 and 2/25/2238, LT King, Lt JG Kavanaugh, Lt JG Correa, SGT Wagner, SGT Arda, CPL Tomak, CPL Rhodes, CPL Davydov and LCPL Courtois supported Picon partisans and went above and beyond the call of duty to effect the rescue of more than a hundred civilians and prisoners of war from the conflict zone.
  • Silver Cluster
    • After the fall of Edson Air Base on Canceron, LT Cadmus, ENS Drake, ENS Kavanaugh, PO1 Dorn, SGT Kovac, LCPL Rhodes and PFC Courtois escaped to the jungle. At great risk to themselves, this group returned to Edson and executed a daring raid to rescue fellow crew members who had been taken prisoner by the Cylons. They also assisted in securing the Cylon Heavy Raider so CAPTs Thorne and O’Day could re-establish contact with friendly forces. Despite being injured and stranded in the jungle for several weeks, Courtois, Rhodes, Kavanaugh, Kovac and Dorn refused evacuation and went on to fight in the Battle of Honnal. For their gallantry under fire and devotion to their shipmates, they are awarded the Silver Cluster.

  • Fleet Commendation Medal
    • During relief operations in Kannur Province, Canceron, a much-needed supply shipment was interdicted by a group of renegade miners. LTJG Aldrich and LCPL Courtois put themselves at risk to approach the miners and negotiate a peaceful resolution. For their efforts, which doubtless saved lives, they are awarded the Fleet Commendation Medal.
