He was born in Sweden on Terra, and later joined the Merchant Marine service as a deckhand. However, when he killed someone in a drunken brawl, he fled the scene before the Merchant Marine Police could arrive to arrest him. He jumped ship, and joined the crew of the Werewolf. He wasn’t happy to go on board a pirate vessel, but became a member of its boarding party, unable to see any way he could help himself.
In reference stardate 2/1412 (circa 2273), Sorensen was aged 31. He was very tall at 6'3", and was quite strong but tended to be clumsy. He had blond hair and blue eyes that seemed sad, at least when sober. At heart and when sober, Sorensen was a quiet, simple man who only wished to enjoy himself. Unfortunately, he had a severe alcoholism problem, and he drank often. More unfortunately, drunkenness put him in a loud, violent berserk rage, smashing anything and anyone he could.
