The Schattendrachens have contacted me in the interests of
getting marriage counselling; as a result of seperate interviews, I
have compiled these profiles which I believe might have some use in
their respective personnel files. I can't imagine either have had a
full profile drawn up on them recently.
Lt. Major(Rosemary) Schattendrachen told me that she was
first drawn to her husband because of his maturity and sophistication;
these are still traits which almost define Walter's external
appearance. In stark contrast to the Marines and Engineers which
make up the staff of this installation, Walter seems quiet and
reserved; exuding an aura of calm authority. His apparant serenity
would seem almost Vulcan, if not coloured by a tendancy towards
self-effacement and humility.
It is this humility(that's a clumsy word for it, though.
Maybe "keen awareness of his frailties" applies better) that defines
the inner Lieutenant Schattendrachen. Although by all accounts a
capable engineer and proficient officer, Walter seems hesitant to
take command of a situation. He relies heavily on the advice of his
subordinates at work; according to Rosemary they virtually lead the
project under him, in spite of his considerable insight into the
Further to this, I have noticed some slight hypochondriac
tendancies in Walter. His immaculate personal grooming extends to
compulsive hand-washing, as well as the light scrubbing of any
utensil, glass, or plate that he is using to eat or drink. He has
carried silk hankerchiefs into my office, worn in his uniform, to rub
clean glasses of water and to serve as a napkin when he eats the
danishes I offer him. I think it needless to say that these
ankerchiefs are never stained.
I think, without having spent too much time psychoanalyzing
Lt. Schattendrachen, that most of these insecurities stem from his
relationship with his father; something he has told me, in fact, a
great deal about. It would seem that Walter is estranged from most
of his family, he only keeps contact with a half-sister who, herself,
keeps only sparing contact with her relatives. Walter dismisses his
mother and half-brother with nary a comment, but expresses deep
hostility towards his father, going so far to describe him as
"tyrannical, boorish and cruel". According to Walter, he was
frequently ridiculed growing up, both for wanting to write and for
wanting to join Starfleet. The realization of the latter dream(at
the expense of working for his father as an accountant) caused the
rift between the two; they have not spoken since Walter entered the
