Character Biography

Name: Zarcal

Position: Captain of the USS Constellation

Hair: Bald

Eyes: Greenish yellow

Born: 2320


Physical

Zarcal is a Zaranite, which means that he wears a mask and visor to help him breathe and see in a class M environment. He is always seen wearing a backpack that allows his mask to create the fluorine gas he needs to breath. He is 144 lbs and 5’11” His eyes are greenish yellow with reptilian style pupils. Blind from birth Zarcal’s has an old fashioned VISOR for when in his native environment as well as the mask that he wears has the functionality built in. He has similar neural implants to other VISOR wearers but the Zaranite brain is far more capable of dealing with the high neural load.


Personality

Zarcal is a respectable Captain who worked as a xenoanthropologist for most of his career given the common outgoing nature and curiosity of others that his people share. He served well over the decades having worked his way through the ranks before being appointed CO of the USS Santiago, a Viking Class explorer outfitted as a science vessel. After helming the Santi for 15 years he thought it best to step down and let a fresh face command the ship and was asked to consider a diplomatic role as opposed to a retirement. He agreed and hug up his pips and was assigned to Janus VI as the Federation Envoy to the Horta as well as to further the studies on the species. He stayed in that role for 11 years, earned the trust and admiration of the Horta people before being asked to come out of retirement for one last command. The USS Constellation. He was ready for an ease into retirement where he can sit back and relax with time to finish his book and savor some Chateau Picard, but fate had other ideas.

One interesting thing about Zarcal is his love of his favorite soap opera, Troubling Times on Risa. Now if you took the most cliché aspects of a show you’d have TToR. With love triangles, affairs, blackmail, long-lost children, big secrets, you name it! Take Days of our Lives, General Hospital, All My Children, The Young and the Restless, and Another World. Threw it into a blender, then poured the solution into a holosuite, you’d have Troubling Times on Risa.


Personal Information

"Unable to breathe oxygen, they are forced to wear breather masks on any planet which does not have a fluorine gas atmopshere [sic]. They have packs on their backs which carry a mechanism capable of generating this gas. To know any Zaranite's history one has only to translate the jewelry which he or she wears around the top half of the body while the lower part signifies their personal designation. Because their home world is poor in precious metals, all adornment is produced from the horns of their most widely cultivated animal – the Berbbotjahaa." (reference)
