Sebastian keeps himself in peak condition, or as close as he can being 47. He stands at 6'1", with a muscular frame. He wears his hair short, though grows his beard out slightly for when the mission requires it.
Dress-wise, Sebastian prides himself on keeping himself well-groomed (occasionally clean-shaven) and functionality of it; whether he can move and fight on moments notice in his articles of clothing; whether it be his fatigues, or his dress uniform or even in civilian clothing.


As a son, Sebastian cares deeply about his parents and has a strong bond with his father and slowly growing to care for his step-mother. They don't often exchange many bad words, but it is difficult for him to see his father with someone new.

As a military man, he is intense. He moves his care into the professional world - making sure to learn names and take interest in their well-being - however, this often is hidden through his gruffer nature of getting the task at hand done. He's down for a joke for every once in a while, but Sebastian knows when to focus. He has an inner drive that continues to propel him through his military career and has a sense of ingrained humor that often appears during times of stress.   

As a friend, Sebastian enjoys his personal space - no touching him until you and he get better acquainted. He's loyal to a fault, though at times, he can be seen as a bull in a china shop when angered but on the other hand, compassionate and a good listener; often suggesting solutions to a drama rather than emotional support.

 Personal History:
Sebastian's father and mother had brought him up on a cattle farm, often making him work early mornings alongside his old man. They were not exactly a poor family, nor were they a rich one. David Barnett had been ridiculed as a young man, before slowly being pushed away from the main family whom resided in Sydney as he moved out into the rural areas. He was always surrounded by a pet (or two), often collies of sorts.

At the age of 14, his mother had left his father after a long and arduous arguement of his education. But, upon turning 15, it seemed his father had already found another love interest - who eventually would become his step-mother at the age of 17. Sebastian couldn't get over the fact that his parents had divorced and only a year later had his father settled with someone else, hardly considering his son's well-being.

To escape this, Sebastian did the only thing he could have thought of and joined up to the Royal Australian Regiment as an Infantryman - putting all his energy into making something of himself and never looked back.
