I've blinded my character and gave him a visor, a la Geordi because I'm partially blind in r/l. I also gave him a beard.
I totally hadn't thought of this idea. I always loved Geordi since being an Albino I am legally blind and was in serious envy of the visor. I had been wondering what I'd do for my Capt now I have an idea thanks
My character is a changeling (alien) so he tries to blend in. Because of this I gave him a receeding hairline and some grey since he's supposed to be blending in with the top brass in Starfleet. Too bad they don't have just for men in the future. :p
