Chester Jandihar - Hacker
Getting into the background: Chester
Chester Jandihar was the son of two parents that wanted him to achieve. He graduated college at 23 with a PhD in Computer Science and a Masters in Behavioral Psychology. He was working with a cutting edge research firm, on an intuitive computer user interface program, when he cracked from the pressure.
He was fired from his job, as undependable. His parents didn't disown him, but they didn't understand him either. They keep their distance.
He got into drug and alcohol addiction, until he nearly died in an accident where he wrapped his car around a telephone pole, and killing a jogger. He was sentenced to three years for manslaughter, rehab and ongoing community service. Which is where he met Ms. Wu.
Since then, he's worked Freelance as a programmer, and he volunteers as often as possible at Ms. Wu's.
He brings in people to his house frequently, down and outers, who he feels obligated to help in one way or another.
He is the most centered character, and he wants to help others with no expectation of return. But he also afraid that non of his good works will ever atone for his sin or the life he took.
He is now 32, and he meets Ash and Grace, takes them in, and got more than he bargained for. But he's all-in.
Can he help them survive, without becoming a target?
**************************Old bio below, new bio above*************************
- Ideation - one who is adept at seeing underlying concepts that unite disparate ideas
- Belief - one who strives to find some ultimate meaning behind everything they do
- Developer - one who sees the untapped potential in others
- Connectedness - one who seeks to unite others through commonality
- Intellection - one who enjoys thinking and thought-provoking conversation often for its own sake, and also can data compress complex concepts into simplified models
I was last tested with an Intelligence Quotient (IQ) of 158. For those who are unaware, that makes me a certified genius.
I am an ENFP-A, with strengths in Ideation, Belief, Developer, Connectedness, and Intellection.
I find myself energized by social interaction. My friends described me as imaginative, open-minded and curious, which probably played a role in my interest in the sciences. I can be a bit more emotionally expressive than some would prefer.
In group settings I find myself focused on social harmony and cooperation. It plays out in my developer and Connectedness strengths, always bringing them together in order to bring out the best in each person, and in the group.
I abhor schedules, I sleep when I want, go where the action is. I enjoy a good game of clue, and I spot any opportunity to get involved in helping others. My Motto is "Relaxed Non-Conformist".
What does you name mean, and how has that played out in your life?
It could be prophetic that my middle name, Chittesh, means Lord of the soul. I was converted to Christianity as a youth while attending a private Catholic High School. Eventually, I joined a non-denominational church locally here in LA, CA.
Training and background
He holds two PhD's from California Institute of Technology (Caltech). One in Computer Science with an emphasis in Operating Systems, and a second in Behavioral and Social Neuroscience (BSN).
Parents xxxx and xxxx Jandihar gave him an american middle name to give him options for fitting in here in the USA. They are not actively involved in his life at this time.

California Institute of Technology (Caltech)
Caltech’s Computing and Mathematical Sciences department is home to some of the most innovative research in the world.
Graduate studies in the Computer Science program aim towards a Ph.D. and include courses in areas such as information theory, robotics, and operating systems. The core coursework and thesis necessary for the M.S. degree do not lead to a terminal degree, but are a required part of the Ph.D. program.
The doctoral program consists of research, breadth requirement, a thesis, and a final examination.
