Routine Activities: Sleeping. prowling. Reading up on random things. playing "Chase and Pounce" in various contexts. being smooth at the ladies.
Growing up on a jungle world, Edei gained extensive experience at moving through jungle, hiding, survival and tracking. He is a decent tracker, naturalist and biologist, although he does not realize this.
Edei is a generalist. He is good at organizing things, programing and using starfleet computers.
Edei is adequate at fighting, flying, repair and damage control. he has scattered but broad knowledge of science.
Edei is a good observer.
He just completed fighter pilots training and so can be trusted to take off in a fighter plane, fly it from here to there and land it aggain without damaging it and himself most of the time. it wouldn't take much for him to falsley believe he is a natural super-ace. Currently his intelligence keeps him cautious about it.

Relative Fighting Ability -Fighting/Shooting/Tactics?
In a hand-to-hand fight, Edei usesa typical Caitian "Fast and Furious" style. he is blazingly fast, but doesn't have large endurance
In shooting Edei is adequate - his quick draw is blazingly quick, but his accuracy past short range is not where he'd like it to be. Edei can use laser/blaster/phaser rifles and when he takes his time hit what he aims at.
Tactically, Edei also defaults to a cat like "Hide and backshoot" strategy. He dislikes stand up fights and likes to set up ambushes whenever possible.

Personality: Edei is curious, straight forward and fun loving. He prefers to present himself as a totally organized and togethr guy totally in control.
He can be prone to bouts of odd curiouity, and egotism.
If you're his friend, you're his deep close friend for life. Edei doesn't have a lot of middle ground there.
Ambitions and Goals: To impress females with rank, status, visible control of the situation, and shinies on his uniform. To see strange new worlds, explore them, sniff them and poke them with sticks. To have a lot of fun and retire to lie to kittens about his incredible deep space adventures.
Psychological Quirks and Problems: Edei is fairly hard core about being a generalist. He doesn't like to be tied down. This is due to being intimidated by his parents competence in science. Edei secretly believes he will never be as smart, well educated or deeply expert in things as they are and so refuses to try.
Edei like to appear together and in control. This is related to Caitain mating behavior. Females choose mates based on smell, health and personality primarily, but can be influenced by wealth, grooming, visual social status and the appearance of being completely smooth and in control.
Edei seeks to emphasize the surface issues, completely oblivious to the fact that the underlying issues are far, far more important.
Physical Problems: None on a Caitian Scale. Edei is large but not remarkably, so. Compared to humans he sleeps more than average, and lacks long term physical endurance, but this is normal for Caitains.
Also normal for Caitians, Edei is somewhat far sighted and his color vision is poor by human standards. His eyes are more specializied for catching movement than shapes.
Father Oedo Earuo; Mother Izaau Earuo
Edei's parent are both biologists, geneticists and naturalists on Cretaceous, a planet in a dinosaur age.
It is crawling with Dinosaurs large and small and a full ecology similar to Earth's 65 million years ago. It holds a small federation colony with a sizable Caitian majority.
Edei grew up on Cretaceous, playing in the jungle learning the fauna flora, learning to hunt, to hide and to observe from his parents, playing with friends and generally being a boy.
Edei's father, Oedo has Tzinkethi blood. He is large for a Caitain. Izaau is full blooded Caitain.
Both are lab-coat and deep science scientists and field scientists/trackers/guides on Cretaceous.
Edei has a younger Sister who is training to be a medical doctor and a much younger brother who is currently an easily distractable adrenaline addict.
Edei has an adopted little brother, the two kits get along like a house on fire and frequently spend entire days running around like loons.
Edei had girls friends as such, growing up on Cretaceous. he hasn't met the female yet for whom his instincts, guided by smell say "Just be near this person whatever else you do."
Edei's best friend growing up was Yowie Ragistan, a Caitain/Qzin hybrid. Yowie is a cheerfully amoral mercenary and leg breaker along the frontier. Yowie has a mate and Kittens on Cretaceous.Edei considers them neices and nephews, and visits when home on leave.
Enemies (And Why): Generic Enemies of the Federation.
Possibly more specific ones coming up
Edei can move with amazing speed. He can leap and do acrobatics a human could only duplicate with years of training and great difficulty.
Edei has a sensitive nose and can spell things with much greater accuracy than a human could.
Edei's night vision is superior to that of a humans (Although his color vision is poor)
Edei's tail is prehensile, he can use it as a third hand - this is normal for Caitains.
Edei is very intelligent, although he doesn't think so - this allows him to pursue a seemingly randomized path of generalism without being uselessly shallow in any given area.
Compared to a human, Edei sleeps a lot. He lacks long term endurance. if fighting a trained human boxer and forced into a stand up fight, Edei would be quickly broken up. Edei would not last as long as a human on a long distance hike.
History and Experiences Which have Affected Character Greatly:
2345 - Born
2351 - becomes member of a childrens dancing group.
2359 - Family visits Tzinketh. Ostensibly to aid in recovery from ecological disaster. However this trip also has a lot to do with granfather Erauo, who was a Hero of the Tzinkethi.
Grandfather, Voek Erauo taks a shine to Edei and bequeaths him his claws. armored gauntlets with enhanced claws, the Cat people eqvivalent of a bat'leth or a family sword.
Publically this makes Edei a person welcome Among the Tzinkethi, but many dislike his family and him for being of impure blood, being Federation citizens and just generally because they are pissy.
