Character Biography


Physical Description

Satyol Kastyi is a very physically fit specimen of the Caitian Species. Standing approximately six feet in height and weighing just about 165 lbs, he is built of the lean physique of a hobbyist athlete. Teal eyes look out of fur that mingles grey and black, with a short, upswept mane on his head between lightly tufted ears. His tail is not tufted, and he seems to go out of his way to keep it wrapped about one leg when at all possible.

His uniform is almost always impeccably turned out, and the only nonregulation piece of wear is a bajoran religious earring on his right ear, made of ultralight metals to avoid hindering the usual Caitian expressive ear-gestures.


Personality

Kastyi is, in a word, enthused. He’s pushed himself for years to get to this position, his first major accomplishment that wasn’t marked by his past as a war refugee. He’s eager to work, confident in his knowledge, and willing to learn. This can make him a challenge to be around, as he has developed a tendency to wear out people with questions and hypothetical discussions.


Profession

The Cadet is a student of the Scientific track, with a particular focus in the social sciences. His coursework thus far includes primary tracks in Sociology and Cultural Anthropology, with elective work in Religious Studies, Economics, and Psychology.


Biography

Two years before the Dominion War ended, Kastyi was an infant on the Caitian-operated freighter Khamira. They were attacked and shot down on the Bajor/Deep Space 9 supply run, with nearly all hands being killed. Fatalities included Kast’s parents, leaving the infant in the care of the ship’s executive officer. Due to the vagaries of war and the fact that the Alliance could not spare a ship to send him all the way back to Caitia, he was relocated with other war refugees who had been temporarily sheltered on Bajor. There, he was ultimately adopted by the Satyol family, small business owners in the countryside. He was raised as a Bajoran, and of his own choosing entered into their religious practices as well.

For a time, he sought to enter holy orders, spending a year with the Society of Acolytes as a lay brother, assisting with various ceremonies. However, this path was to prove unsuccessful for a variety of reasons in post-war Bajor. Eager to see their adopted son succeed, his foster parents urged him to pursue academia, and eventually he applied to Starfleet, earning a War Dead Refugee admission.


Medical


There are only a few medical instances of note in Kastyi’s files.
He has a significant allergy to bajoran Lorpa beans. Anaphylactic shock is indicated as a side effect.
His left thigh was broken and healed once during a martial arts tournament his first year at the academy.
His right hand suffered multiple breaks throughout childhood, requiring skeletal restructuring upon entrance to the academy.
