Known Information


Ambrose’s journey from boy to man began on Ariel. That is where he was born and raised, and where he only heard stories of other places.

His father had long since been in the Alliance before he ever settled on Ariel. He was on the move, sent wherever the Alliance needed him. To Jack Nightshade, duty and responsibility were always first. On an assignment that took him to Ariel, he met a wonderful woman who could cook him the most fanciful of meals. Arianna Tyler stole his heart so that when he left Ariel after completing his mission, she was on his mind almost constantly. He had a few more visits to Ariel, many of them personal, when he eventually settled on the planet after discovering that Arianna had gotten pregnant. So he transferred to working on the local Alliance branch on Ariel and married Arianna.

Ambrose was born healthy and was loved by both his parents, both of them proud of their baby boy. He was a happy baby, very content, especially held in his mother’s arms. When he did cry his mother would sing a song that would comfort and soothe him. It was like magic how song could comfort him.

He had many rolls as baby, always eating, and even into his childhood he never completely got rid of that baby chub. He wasn’t very physical, and made many mistakes at everyday labour work. But oh, he loved to learn. He’d sit and work from books and assignments for hours, looking up all sorts of information and stories. He kept to himself mostly, but was kind when he did speak. He loved music, and had one musician that he admired, that inspired him.

His father wasn’t impressed when Ambrose expressed his enthusiasm for music. He told him to forget the desire and to focus on his studies. Ambrose was disappointed he couldn’t own his own instrument. His mother was more encouraging about his music, but she wouldn’t contradict her even if she was more supportive. Ambrose often spoke to his mother for advice, and helped her out in her kitchen at work, where he picked up some cooking techniques. He would happily sing as they worked together and discussed many things.

His father was hard on him, pushed him to choose goals, made sure he was aware that what he should be doing was getting into a good career and none of the fanciful stuff. Although it would have made his father proud, Ambrose had no interest in working as an officer for the Alliance. He did decide that becoming a doctor could help a lot of people, and he took a particular interest in psychology. This satisfied his father at least as he spent a lot of time and hard work on learning.

He also met the musician that inspired him. His father was not pleased that he was taking time out of his schedule to learn how to play, but he didn’t disallow it as long as he was keeping up with his other studies. In the end, he was gifted a guitar by this very dear friend, and is probably one of his most prized possessions. This friend told him if he ever wanted to see him again, just head to Persephone.

Ambrose flew around via shuttles putting his skills into practice. He always, always came back to Persephone where he got to play music with a close friend and eventually decided that he would make a home there, as he made other friends here and found a place to work both in psychology and music.


Ambrose is relatively tall, reaching just less than six feet. He has lost the chubbiness he had as a child, which has formed into more of a solid build. Broad shoulders, strong back, muscled arms, and a tight jawline. He looks strong enough to endure a punch or a kick, but the expressive lines on his face portrays a soft and gentle look most of the time, but can, on occasion, change into a harder, firmer look. His complexion is on the paler side, giving more of a sharp contrast with his hair. His black mane of hair is combed neatly back, but with a couple of wayward strands that hang over his forehead. His deep set eyes are hazel and rich, and fill with intensity when he's focused.

His casual attire is worn neat and tidy. Dressed respectable in black pants of a good quality, creamy-coloured shirt fits loosely, but is tucked into the waistband of his pants. Two buttons at his neck is kept undone, but the collars are folded down precisely. A silver necklace is worn around his neck, the cross shaped pendant of a shiny silver metal. Over his eyes he wears a pair of black, rectangular glasses.
