|Personal History||Paul was born in Edinburgh to Gene and Margaret Toddman. They soon after moved to New Dunfermline, in Fife, Scotland where Paul grew up. He attended his local primary school - Robert Burns Primary and went on to attend St. Andrews High School. As soon as he met the Starfleet Academy entrance age he applied for his entrance. He passed the entrance exam first time and graduated fourth in his class. Paul's father was killed when the ship he commanded was destroyed at Wolf 359. His father was one of only thirty crew members to be killed aboard the U.S.S. Normandie NCC-56098.
Tragically, his mother was killed when her ship was destroyed by the Dominion in the taking of the Chin'Toka system near the end of the Dominion War. Paul was aboard at the time and escaped with two hundred others in escape pods.
Since then Paul has more or less lived on his own and spent a lot of his time learning the arts of hand to hand combat and the use of bladed weapons. At the age of sixteen Paul decided he wanted to join Starfleet and make his skills a tool of his trade. Security was a natural choice for him and so he enrolled into officer training at Starfleet Academy with the Security Corps. Rising to the position of Chief of Security, Paul took the opportunity to expand his skill set and took on a Chief of Operations position where he studied and passed all the courses required to hold such a position. He later combined his tactical and operations knowledge as a Strategic Operations officer. Paul has also served in the role of 2XO and XO at various times. After the Dominion war, Paul opted to take the shoreleave he had accumulated over several years on unbroken service to Starfleet and enjoy some time back on Earth.
