|Personal History||Born in Lagos on Earth, Jonathan's early childhood was a mixture of traditional African imagery and 24th century life. He grew up with his twin sister Orisa and they entered the academy together. Orisa was his superior in nearly every field, and was at the top of his class while Jonathan was consistently in the lower half, with the exception of physical exercise and combat classes.
Jonathan graduates in 2374, exactly in time to be sent to the front in the dominion war, serving with the tenth fleet, who are ultimately responsible for the liberation of Betazed. Jonathan is awarded and promoted for leading a detachement of marines into the capital's administrative building and bringing down the Jem Hadar's defense modules.
Days after the Dominion war ends, his security chief, T'val offers to take him with her on her new posting on the Magellan. He accepts and is promoted to full lieutenant, becoming T'val's go to guy.
In 2379, Jonathan reunites with his sister as both the Magellan and her ship the Ohio were assigned as peacekeeping forces on Tezwa. Captain Orisa Holden and Commander T'var were both attending a political banquet when the insurgents led by deposed former prime minister Kinchawn bombed the building. All sevenhundred people in the building died, and it was just the start of an extremely bloody coup attempt.
Despite his loss, Jonathan threw himself into fighting the Insurgents and, together with the tezwan security forces eventually brought peace to the planet.
Soon after, Jonathan's position was officially confirmed, and he was made Chief of security and despite his recent promotion, second officer of the Magellan. He also passed his supplemental command and bridge officer exams, and when first officer H'zaan was offered his own command, Captain Pike offered Jonathan the second chair.
He served for five and a half years until *Redacted*
He was officially given command of the newly launched Amsterdam last week, though he'd been scouting crew for months.
