Caelian is of modest height and build, wiry and athletic. There is a simplicity to his features, a unassuming set to his jaw and a humble expression in his pale eyes. In recent years, Caelian has adopted a close-cut style to his dark hair and beard in keeping with Starfleet applicant standards. In the right light, Caelian’s eyes are known to have a violet cast thanks to a childhood illness. His tan skin also bears a slight olive undertone, a testament to his family’s Mediterranean heritage.
Caelian was born on stardate 47645.6* to Mikal and Patricia Weir while on an extended science mission aboard the USS Venture. Despite having no children of his age on the Oberth-class vessel, young Caelian flourished amongst the xenoarchaeologists and scientists eager to explain theories and answer questions. The young boy’s astute mind took to tales of ancient civilizations like a sponge to water, absorbing discovery after discovery.
Following the untimely death of his sister in a shuttle accident, Caelian’s interests shifted to his father’s craft of engineering. He worked long and dutifully to understand the cause of so much loss, and to assure it never happened again. Mikal taught the boy all he could, and their work bonded them in their shared grief. To the engineer’s delight and surprise, it was through this that Caelian’s pitch-perfect hearing and uncanny understanding of mathematics was unearthed. The boy was even permitted to assist with simple repairs aboard the Venture and was dubbed “Little Tinker” by captain and crew.
At age 11, a strange malady interrupted Caelian’s studies—a unique, disorienting near-blindness that left him barely able to fend for himself in his parents’ absence. Despite experiencing nauseating pain and spells of vertigo, Caelian was unable to receive proper medical treatment until the Venture completed its surveys and returned to the nearest starbase. It was later discovered to be caused by a confluence of genetic mutation and environmental factors, a sort of “biological fluke.” Fortunately, Caelian was able to recover his eyesight with the help of gene therapy and implants.
After a long and reliable career, Mikal retired from Starfleet when Caelian was 16. While he had received several promising offers from varied civilian vessels, it was his father’s retirement ceremony that inspired him to study for Starfleet. Rather than applying immediately, Caelian decided to help his father support Patricia’s research to its conclusion. The family spearheaded several digs and studies along with the Venture’s crew, as well as a small tour aboard the USS Horizon.
While considered getting a late start in his Starfleet career, Caelian was nonetheless determined to follow in his father’s footsteps and earn the respect of his peers…
As mentioned previously, Caelian suffered a singular genetic malady that damaged his optic nerves, as well as both parietal and occipital lobes. Simply known as Antagri’s disease (named for the system in which the disease was thought to have been contracted) amongst the medical staff, the disease most deeply disrupted the boy’s vision and spacial relations. It wasn’t until Caelian was thoroughly examined that a genetic anomaly was the culprit—a curious confluence of natural genetic mutation coupled with atmospheric phenomena native to the Antagri system. Through gene-correction therapy and implantation, doctors were able to correct the issues and return Caelian to normalcy.
The delay in treatment, however, left Caelian with a sensitivity to bright light and a phobia of unobstructed heights. The genetic trade-off is that Caelian has superior night vision and keen spatial perception. Tests have also shown his muscle and bone density to be slightly greater than his peers, though to no remarkable degree. Whether due to Antagri’s disease or simple genetics, Caelian has proven to possess pitch-perfect hearing and an intuitive mind.
Nearly every bone in Caelian’s body shows signs of breakage and stress repair, attributed to a rambunctious youth when planetside and injury from assisting his father in civilian repairs.
Caelian is native-fluent in Federation Standard, and well-versed in several of its more regional dialects. He has an elementary understanding of Vulcan, Klingonaase, and Bajoran. He also adequately reads, but does not speak, Old High Martian. With his altered hearing, Caelian can sometimes intuit tone and mood from a foreign language assuming even trace familiarity or posture.
