His mother and sister's names on the left side of his neck in plain Bajoran script. The symbol of the Bajoran religion, and by extension, Bajor, on his left pectoral. With a coin sized gap of fresh, uninked skin from a healed bullet wound. B'hava'el star system, all fourteen planets, their many moons, the Denorios Belt, and celestial temple. All displayed on the same black spacescape that comes over his right shoulder, goes down his back past his waste, and across to his left. There is an exit wound sized gap in the design over his left shoulder blade. On his left shoulder, almost reaching to his elbow, is a pin-up of a 23rd century Starfleet Yeoman, skirt uniform and all; it?s a little tacky, but very well done.

|While unable to be a pacifist, Jason detests violence, and is rather sensitive to it. Unnecessary use of force angers him, and necessary use of it makes him uncomfortable. But he loves his line of work, enjoys training the skills required, and is proud of his abilities when they are required. Everything about how he holds himself and how he moves suggests that he would be willing to fight, perhaps even aggressive. The truth of it though is he is guarded, and always a little anxious, never truly relaxed unless he is alone or in an agreeable environment.
New situations make him nervous, not knowing how to act, or how others will act will fluster him, not being familiar with his surroundings makes him uncomfortable, and he relaxes into them somewhat slowly. This is one of the reasons he remained on Bajor as long as he did. The comfort of familiarity allows the typically laconic Jason to become somewhat affable, someone who likes talking about things of interest and absurdity with his co-worker and is tactful enough calm down a situation between a drunken Andorian Ambassador and a Tellarite General, or at least end it without making it worse.
He lives a mostly spartan, simple life. This does not mean that his life is a lonely or leisure-less one though. Rather, he is a quiet, affable person who keeps his social sphere and wants small. Often, when he desires focus or needs to calm down or rest, Jason will simply want to be alone. He values anyone who can appreciate this and in turn keeps a respectable distance from things that don?t concern him and cause no harm.
Jason is purposely tolerant and welcoming of the many different cultures he has come across, finding the infinite variation both inspiring and enduring. He is especially inclined towards cultures with liberal leanings, as well as those that place a special value in personal freedom. On the other hand, he has certain professional and personal grievances against certain foreign groups bordering Federation space, if not the peoples whom form them and the ideals they claim. Jason is experienced in the mundane task of protecting important, and demanding, persons, a role somewhere between bodyguard and yeoman. He has experience with planning routes, searching buildings and vehicles for threats, performing background checks, precision piloting, and escorting diplomats through their day to day activities, as well as various other small unit operations and roles. His previous Militia occupation was an enlisted instructor, because of this he holds instructor qualifications in small-arms, use of force, and the hand-to-hand combat and has had numerous past combat experiences. Training is done religiously, to maintain a high level of performance. This specialization in security has limited his experience as a tactical officer, under taking such duties during just one previous assignment. He will freely admit this, and is currently intent on improving his effectiveness as a bridge officer. Jason is somewhat better at operating a shuttlecraft, due to his time working as a close protection specialist.
Jason speaks several languages: Bajoran (received dialect and Lotha province dialect), received Cardassian (as well as written) Federation Standard, Vulcan and Ferengi trade pidgin. He uses languages as spearhead to understand other cultures. However, while an understanding of language and culture helps when you encounter a new one every day, it does not help you understand what the science officer is saying or what the engineer's metaphor is supposed to mean. This persistent lack of grasp of science is a constant thorn in his side.
While to call Jason a workhorse would be an insensitive use of the archaic idiom, as well as incredibly Terran, it wouldn?t be inaccurate. While he?s usually inclined to take care of himself, if a situation requires that he push himself, whether it be physically or mentally, Jason won?t stop until he breaks. This can be from a days? long blitz of tasks or a months? long accumulation of stress, either way he will begin to get frustrated and unfocused, as well as temperamental. Jason would ultimately like to teach at one of Starfleet?s academies, though he has the much more practical ambition of establishing himself as a good strong Starfleet Officer. As a child, his favourite challenge was a form of poem his adoptive father taught him that made use of the Bajoran writing system?s octadic rotational characters to juxtapose two statements or phrases for poetic or rhetorical effect, though he typically just likes to read, everything from fiction to peer reviewed articles.
He was also taught pre-occupational martial arts as a child. Building on his Bajoran Militia training, he has been able to further his knowledge of it, reconstructing techniques and exercises from old text and collaborations with other practitioners, in turn using it to supplement his Starfleet training. He also enjoys reading the writings of pre-occupational masters and learning other people's training methods.
He also enjoys the sport of velocity, though his play is considered too rough by most, as well as most activities associated with Bajoran moon camping.
The Terran Jason Holza was born on Bajor in the boom period that began a number of years after the rebuilding of the planet that followed the end of Cardassian occupation. He was raised in a simple farming community in Lotha Province by his mother Sandra and adoptive father Zan. His biological father Anthony died in an antimatter explosion whilst working on one of Bajor?s moons.
Originally holding ambitions of becoming a scholar or a teacher, he enrolled in the Bajoran Military Academy. His efforts and application earned him acceptance into the Space Patrol Training Program, a significant achievement for an ?off-worlder?. As time went on, more and more of the Bajoran military was being absorbed into Starfleet, so instead of continuing his career with the Militia he joined Starfleet. Enlisting was the only route as he did not meet the Starfleet Academy?s academic standards at the time.
After fleet basic, Jason was assigned to the USS Tian An Man as Crewman Apprentice in the Operations Department. He served on the ?Man for several weeks before the ship was ambushed near the Cardassian border and left adrift for a time and thought lost by Starfleet. Once the ?Man was recovered, he received mandatory medical leave before being transferred to Security Occupational training on Betazed, on the recommendation of the ship?s counsellor, on the basis that his personality and disposition fit the role well.
Jason spent most of that period guarding weapons lockers and being drilled in anti-boarding procedures and evacuation duties. He persevered for 8 months until he decided against re-upping his enlistment.
Jason spent the next year living back on Bajor, working labour and security jobs, and living with a young woman, named Bask, who was attending the Bajor Institute of the Arts, who he had known before enlisting in Starfleet. The relationship was terminal within a year, and Jason began to have difficulty keeping work. So, without somewhere to live and no job, he re-enlisted.
For the next two years, Jason served in security aboard the Galaxy-class USS Traveller, earning himself a spot on the ship?s close protection unit as the ship explored deep space in the Delta Quadrant. While aboard he took on additional studies taking condensed Starfleet courses. He graduated with a degree in Exolinguistic Theory, with a minor in Federation Literature.
Near the end of his tour on the Traveller, he applied for a Starfleet commission based on his security experience, with letters of recommendation from his current master-at-arms and commanding officer. His application was approved and he was enrolled in an officer training course at the Starfleet Academy campus on Pinastri before being commissioned to the rank of ensign.
