David Telford is a special agent with the Office of Special Investigations (more or less the AF version of the Navy’s NCIS). He’s a federal law-enforcement agent and a civilian, though he served eight years in the Air Force (four on active duty in aircraft maintenance and four on reserve status) when he was younger. He also happens to be a very competent engineer, especially when it comes to aircraft, but not a genius like Carter or McKay. His hobbies are geocaching and bowhunting and he enjoys romantic moonlight walks on the beach.

Friends
Apart from some members of his tribe and his fellow OSI agents, Telford doesn’t have a lot of friends. Partly this is due to a naturally reserved personality, and partly due to his profession. He moves around a lot and is perpetually an outsider, especially since he’s usually wherever he is investigating the people there. He’s not unfriendly, though, and is perfectly willing to pal around casually with interested parties, he’s just leery of bonding. At the moment, he thinks his posting to SGC is just another temporary assignment – if/when that changes (and as people become more comfortable with him being a cop), he’ll begin to put down more serious roots.

Enemies
As might be expected, there’s a long list of criminals Telford’s sent to jail. Some of them are white-collar wimps, but some are hardcore Very Bad People. There’s also the NID. They wanted to be the fact-finders for the IOA and to have one of their own people in the job he’s currently doing. They’re not best pleased at being thwarted, and not known for being nice or sporting, so there’s likely trouble heading his way.

Lovers
While he’s a normal, healthy, straight male, Telford’s lovers have been few and far between. He’s not a one-night-stand kind of guy, and his job tends to get in the way of anything more stable or long term, sending him across the world (or, now, across the galaxy) for unpredictable lengths of time at the drop of a hat. He’s beginning to think more seriously about finding a wife and settling down (plus his mom wants grandkids), but fate so far has not obliged.

Friends: Taft has been Military Police and, while it wasn't his first passion by any stretch of the imagination, he was quite good at it. He even made it to Investigator because of his unassuming mindset allowing him to take a scenario or scene for what it was, not what it might be. They might very well get along in the personality department because of this, and while Taft isn't likely to Sherlock any great mysteries he is a good sounding board for discussing the existing evidence or talking about the terrible things with another officer of the law (because cops have to vent, or they break down).

Enemies: Taft will protect one of his people from something minor. Why? Because as far as he knows they are as close to being his kids as he'll ever see.

Lovers: Taft would be flattered, but Telford isn't his type. Thank you, but no... please, stop asking... :)

David & ... David

'cause you know the name thing is going to come up at some point.

Friends - Sounds good to me, and I think they'd get along great. Telford has considerable respect for NCOs, especially NCOs with criminology degrees. ;) You want them to have worked together on an earlier case somewhere, or just be kindred spirits meeting for the first time?

Enemies - Excellent, 'cause while Telford's competent in hand-to-hand, he's not a Marine.

Friends: Well, Joey's not going to be super warm at first towards anyone who she might misconstrue as some slimy investigator, and I don't imagine he'd be thrilled about her committing treason, but she can respect anyone who can talk shop on engineering matters, and since said misconstruing would be nothing more than her making a bad assumption about an upstanding guy, I could see them getting along alright.

Enemies: The kind of people who he's on the shit list of would probably make her respect him even more, really.

Lovers: Joey is definitely not going to ship Taft and Telford in-universe.

LOL ... it's becoming Daves of our Lives.

Joey & Telford

Having finally bopped over to read the Gauntlet thread now, no, he wouldn't be enchanted by her behavior, but he probably wouldn't rate it as treason. Strikes me as more of a disciplinary matter for her chain of command to handle (though those more familiar with the UCMJ than I am are most cordially invited to weigh in).

They might meet once she's out of the brig/stockade/etc., though, and he'd be impressed by her knowledge (if not so much by her impulse control ;>).

It sounds like the beginning of a buddy cop movie.

"One's a civilian investigator with a down to earth, spiritual approach. The other is a hard hitting lifer in the Marine Corp. Together, they are Dave & Dave. They'll discover the truth and then PT it until it f*cking dies!"

Indeed. ;)

"By day, they put the bad guys away but by night their tender passion cannot be caged."

*coughs*

Aaaaaaanyway. So, old acquaintances or newly-met? Telford's a jogger, so maybe they meet up on a trail somewhere, either way? Then some old not-so-much-friends show up?

Rather than trying to back plot something we can do the jogging idea. He's well known around the base due to his rank, will be working out in his Marine Recon shirt, and makes a habit of knowing who has signed the non-disclosure agreements in the world.

*interuppts the Dave On Dave experience*

Mere isnt going to be overly put off by the fact that your OSI, provided that you dont come killing the fun.
She would be respectful towards you certainly - Only reason I could see them ever butting heads would be if he starts sticking his nose into someone she's particularly close to, especially if she doesnt think its justified.

She's skulking on and off base, with and without people, so be interesting to see how they cross paths

Well, looks like we've got three joggers, and there must be miles of running trails in the Colorado Springs area. I see also that CS is at the 6000+' level, which Taft and Mere, having been there awhile, are acclimated to, but Telford might well not be. He also has a condition that causes slight disorientation at high altitudes. It's mild and not normally a problem outside of trying to operate high-performance aircraft, but put that together with hypoxia and ...
