Personal History Andrew Whiteshadow was born in early 2349, the youngest son to Kieran and Fiona Whiteshadow, he joined a rather sizable family as his mother was assigned to Earth Spacedock as the resident JAG Officer, while she got along with the base commander, she had to deal with two separate chains of command.

It would cause her and her family various issues later on as Andrew grew up here in Earth orbit before being shunted around like a package of mail from posting to posting.

His father kept the rest of the children with him but his other decided to take Andrew around on assignment with her so Andrew grew up spending his entire life on Starships.

He learned a great deal about being in Starfleet without being in Starfleet so when the time came, he applied to join Starfleet, he went into the JAG Corps after he graduated, his first posting was to Starbase Eleven.

He served here for several years before being reassigned to Starbase Sixty two, his subsequent assignments saw him going from base to base, he went from base to base to base, taking cases that he favored, sometimes it was the underdog and other times he accepted simple cases.

While he was not on cases. he was spending time with his wife and kids. He met his wife Pava while on assignment to Starbase 62 but they really didn't get to know each other until he was assigned to Starbase 15, she was a news reporter and following this JAG officer around seemed like a good way to find various stories.

The two started dating once he was able to elicit a promise from her that she would not use him for sensitive material and that he would provide her stories she could use, after he had gotten clearance for her to use said stories. She agreed as he gave his wife a steady stream of good work over the years.

She was the one who also started adopting orphans after they had their two children, first one was T'Sheera, A Vulcan whose family had died in a shuttle crash, then it was Forii, a Bolian who's family had been killed during the Dominion War and her in-laws didn't want her. A year or so later Rana came into their lives as nobody knew what to do with this Bajoran street urchin, all she really wanted was to feel safe and a home she could call her own. Last came Koriia Zh'Whiteshadow, an Andorian Zhen with no clan left to claim her, so the Whiteshadows took her in as one of their own.

Pava Whiteshadow remained on Starbase 12 as Andrew was demoted following a bar brawl in which he decked over forty-something people.

Pava was proud of her husband and his fighting skills but he pleaded guilty to all of the charges thrown at him, the entire series of events was also fictitious so he could be sent to the Roanoke's battlegroup as they needed JAG officers, it would be easier for them to accept him if they saw him blemished.

In early 2392, his assignment and tour with the USS Roanoke was completed and so he went back to JAG on starbase 12, his rank and service file restored, a year later he was reassigned to the Starfleet base on Utgarde Four as the head of Starfleet JAG in the Taurus Reach.
