Traileman was tall and stocky. By 1906 PD, he was also balding. (HH5)
Holding the rank of Rear Admiral around 1906 PD, he served as commander of the twelfth division in the First Battle Squadron, carrying his flag aboard the superdreadnought GNS Manticore's Gift. He harbored quite a few reservations against his commanding officer, Admiral Honor Harrington, because she was a woman, but did his best not to let them interfere with his duties.
When evaluating the results of her war games with the squadron, Admiral Harrington considered him to be the "weakest link" among her divisian commanders. He was a fighter and an excellent administrator, but short on finesse. However, his staff repected him deeply. Harrington thus decided to keep him on the job even if he was sometimes difficult.
