Private Steven Elder
origin: New York, USA, earth
Steven is a nobody. He got only average grades in school, wasn’t exactly popular and doesn’t have any special hobbies, interests or talents. He joined the military because he had no idea what to do with his life at the time, and now he just sticks to what he knows. He is John Doe to most people and tries to stay off the radar as much as possible, which usually works just fine. The only people who know him are his few friends within his unit and his average American family. He doesn’t have a wife or any kids but he has been seeing his girlfriend for 14 months and he is beginning to consider proposing to her.
The only reason Steven works for the SGC is because he accidentally found out about the program. While stationed at Ellis Airbase Steven opened the crate that contained the Russian DHD that was being shipped to Cheyenne Mountain. He was looking for a crate he had mislabeled. He was forced to sign the confidentiality agreement and was transferred to the SGC. He usually does not go on off-world missions because command doesn’t think he is qualified. He has been to atlantis a few times though. He mostly does the menial work like scrubbing the floors and weapon maintenance. He doesn’t mind. He likes to be part of something as important as the SGC but likes it even more that he doesn’t have to be on the front-line.
