Personal History Orlando came from a close knit family and had a good upbringing from two parents and two older doting sisters. He and his brother would often switch places so much that even his own family had difficulty telling the difference between Jackson and Orlando. After his brothers death, Orlando has dealt with bouts of depression and often feels lost. He has one child who lives with his mother in San Francisco that he sees as often as he can and video calls when possible. Orlando joined Starfleet to seek adventure from what he thought was a boring life growing up on a goat farm near Las Vegas, Nevada. Someday, he hopes to return to Las Vegas....
