Character Biography

Name: TcTcTauGrune “Morning Bright”
Rank: Ensin
Occupation:
Race: Gnalish, Arklash genotype (Sapiosaurus gnala magna)
Age: 50
Height: 2.2m
Weight: 500kg
Physical Description:
“Morning Bright” (literal translation) is Bipedal amphibious saurian resembling a small terrestrial theropod, with striped body markings generally green but shifting to brown,turquoise and orange with mood and background.
History:
“Morning Bright” was raised on on Gnala, joining The the Federation Marine corps during the Founders War and attaining a rank of Gunnery Sergeant.
Cashing out and returning to Gnala, he found himself having difficulties readjusting to civilian life and petitioned Starfleet accodomy for admittance. His military record, test scores and uniqueness tiled the scales leading to his admission.
Studying computational linguistics and xeno-archeology, he graduated and was commissioned.
Unfortunately his CO requested that he transfer out of his first posting for unspecified reasons despite good personnel reviews.

Medical history:
Other than the expected minor injuries one expects cadets to suffer during Academy training, Ensin “Morning Bright” appears to be in good health for a member of his species.

Psychological history:
Mr. “Morning Bright” appears to be a well adjusted Gnaulish of middle years, his previous service appears to have had no lasting effect on him.
It should be noted that his slow deliberate nature belies his intelligence just as his apparent emotionless nature belies his loyalty to his crew.

Overview:
Gnalish are amphibious saurians resembling small terrestrial Theropods.
The species consists of three main genotypes, the Fejjimereht who are buy far the most common sub race found in Star Fleet and being the smallest of the three, the larger Mazzereht as well as the larger still Arklash.
Gnalish mature at a similar rate to the humanoids, reaching sexual maturity at 15 cycles and 90% mature length and 75% full mass. Reaching full length and 90% mature mass at 20. Notably female Gnalish lay clutches of unfertilized eggs, and as a social norm males are allowed a one time opportunity to compete for the right to fertilize a clutch.
Gnalish are physically strong wile possessing clawed limbs and a long tail. This gives them a long loping gait and an enhanced leap.
There simi-aquatic nature also leads to their ability to swim and comfort in water. Like many terrestrial reptiles Gnalish have a flow threw as apposed to a tidal respiratory system. This leads to the use of specialized EVA compression suits and modified EVA rigs.
Gnalish visual acuity is equivalent or slightly better than humans, tho their low light and peripheral vision is greater (some 160 deg.) do to eye size and placement. Eye placement dose reduce binocular vision over 90% of their field of view. . Their sense of smell is equivalent, their sense of hearing is shifted slightly into the lower ranges.
Gnalish native dialects depend on clicks, growls and bird like chirps, but they are proficient mimics producing parodies of other languages not unlike terrestrial parrots (tho typically int he lowers octave ranges). Do to the code like nature of their underwater and long range calls, Gnalish tend to make excellent ciphers and linguists. Conversely some of the regional dialects escape standard translator programs.
Gnalish have a crest on their heads as well as a dewlap and a limited ability to change skin color for camouflage and display purposes.
Gnalish language relies on subsonic sounds and physical display to both communicate underwater and to communicate silently as part of a hunting pack.

Fejjimereht, 1.75m(5’7”), 6.125m(19’7”) long and 300kg(660#)
Mazzereht 2m(6’5”), 7m(22’4”) long and 400kg(880#)
Arklash 2.2m(7’) tall, 7.7m(24’8”) long, 500kg(1100#)

Psycho-socialy Gnalish don’t experience romantic love, tho they do form emotional and social attachments, such as to clutch mates and fellow crew. The later reinforced buy their pack nature, and general isolation wile serving.
Tho like the majority of life they exhibit a strong survival instinct, Gnalish in a pack or team seating exhibit very little fear or other emotionally driven behavior. Unlike Vulcans, their emotionless nature is evolutionary as apposed to cultural, as they do not experience emotions as most humanoids.
Like the Gorn and other Repto-Sarian races they are known to trigger anxiety attacks in susceptible humans and other humanoids.

History:

First documented encounter SD 5383.1 (2269)

Players notes, this is a departure from the typical “men in suits” nature of nonhuman races is Star Trek, wile leaning on a supported race.
Much of description is based on extrapolation from terrestrial biology and evolution among Raptors, birds and reptiles. I have left some areas hinted at but unaddressed, such as how long can they hold their breath, interacting in spaces designed for humans and such. Wishing to explore this with my fellows in role playing situations.
