Supplemental Information
System Information
  • Family Business - Mathieu Paquette comes from the Paquette family, known for their winemaking. Their wines are named Chateu du Lac, and are well known on Leonis.
  • Cooking As Relief - Mathieu enjoys spending time in the kitchen, and he's good at cooking too. For him, it has always been a kind of relief, enough so that he had considered going back to civilian life and opening a small restaurant at some point before the war.
  • Sings Everywhere - He has a tendency to break into song almost everywhere. It's a way of coping with stress, but also something he enjoys. One of his earlier postings, he accidentally transmitted the singing while flying, earning himself the callsign "Jukebox".

Born on Leonis in 2205, Mathieu Paquette is the middle of three children born to the winemaker Julien Paquette, head of the family that make the Chateau du Lac wines, and his wife Amanda. He has an older sister named Marion, who will be the next to take over the family business, and a younger brother, Aurelien, who works as a lawyer. His maternal grandfather was a fighter pilot, and his old stories made Mathieu decide on that particular career. All in all, he had a pretty normal childhood and youth, although he learned to play the piano, as well as the sport golf. It was during his later teenage years, he started learning to cook, very soon realizing he had a talent for it, as well as the fact that in a kitchen, he could let all other things go, and achieve some kind of inner peace.

Hard working, he went to the academy for the Leonese Fleet, taking on both the military training and his major, which was in economics. It was at some point during these years he started singing, both because he enjoyed it, and because it worked as some kind of stress relief. There may have been a few times he really doubted his career choice, but he fought through, through the hard work becoming a Viper pilot.

And thus, young Ensign Paquette got into his years of service as a pilot. It was during one of the early years of active duty that the first time he ended up actually transmitting his singing during a routine patrol, something the others flying with him wouldn’t let him forget as they gave him the callsign Jukebox. He enjoyed his career, as he made a few promotions, and is now a lieutenant. But as he got older, he considered retiring from the military and opening a restaurant somewhere. But then, war broke out.

So far in the War, Mathieu’s been fighting on Leonis, showing himself as a capable pilot, known for keeping rather cool under pressure (although few people can hear the singing in the cockpit). During the war, he has also earned a promotion to Captain. He is also known as someone who will try whatever he can to help raise the morale of his squadron mates and others fighting with him. This has earned him a transfer to the combined Colonial forces, and the Timber Wolves.

Standing at about six feet, and with an athletic build, like someone that’s made a habit of working out. Light brown hair is kept at a few inches and left relatively wild on top of his head. There’s usually some stubble on his slightly U-shaped face. Other facial features include a nose that’s slightly larger than the average, green eyes that seem to be slightly narrowed, as well as pale lips. When he speaks, it is with a slight accent.

Paquette is dressed in a Colonial Forces officer's uniform. The blue-gray jacket is tucked into matching trousers. A softer, darker blue fabric adorns the jacket's shoulders, with off-center brass buttons running up the right side. The left breast sports a single button-down pocket, above which are his flight qualification wings. The pins on his collars show a rank of Lieutenant.
