Biography:

Born in the desert city of ShiKahr on Vulcan to his father Vudol and his mother T’shun, Javal, like so many other Vulcan youths, experienced a rigorous and demanding childhood designed to teach him in the elements of basic logic while culling his natural propensity to display emotion. Yet despite this, Javal was one to be a tad deviant - in the evenings when he was not receiving instruction or performing tasks set by his parents, he would steal out to the wilds at the edge of Vulcan’s Forge, sometimes dragging along his older brother Javok with him. It was during those forays that Javal began to connect with the complexity of life, eagerly observing creatures such as the local sehlat cats that roamed the areas outside his home. His brother disapproved of his overly curious nature, as did his instructors, who eventually learned about these dangerous and illogical exploratory ventures.

Javal’s early fascination with living beings drove him to gravitate towards the study of biology, particularly in the subfields of exoanatomy and biochemistry. While he excelled in these areas, his sometimes passionate and curious nature, a lingering relic of illogic that he was prone to displaying, hampered his advancement to higher positions on Vulcan. This was made most clear to Javal when he and his brother Javok, who both applied to the Vulcan Science Academy seeking a position in biomedical research, resulted in Javok’s acceptance in place of his brother, even though the two brothers had roughly comparable scores on their entrance exams. Javal attributed his failure to his deficiency in conduct, as it was Javok who won over the favor of the admissions council by virtue of his self-control.

Seeing the writing on the wall, Javal decided to look beyond the Vulcan system to apply himself, and at the age of 20 he took on a position as a contracted civilian biomedical researcher aboard Starbase 211, a base located on the Federation-Cardassian border in the Alpha Quadrant. Although the Dominion War had concluded some 13 years prior to Javal’s assignment to the station, the aftereffects of the catastrophic conflict were still very much felt in the region. Under the direction of Lieutenant Commander Aarrad Izobin, the head of biomedical research at the starbase, Javal was directly involved for a period of two years in the relief effort of Federation, Klingon, and other Alliance members who had received complex injuries specifically of an orthopedic nature following their service in the Dominion War. It was here that Javal conducted experiments on new regenerative treatments for extensive trauma, and his experiences working with men and women of various backgrounds and medical histories made him interested in the idea of taking biomedical research like that he had worked on himself and apply it more directly as a physician. Dr. Izobin, perceiving Javal’s apparent interest in pursuing a career change, encouraged him to consider a position in Starfleet, convincing him that individuals such as himself were in high demand in Starfleet Medical. Pondering the decision, Javal eventually agreed to the idea in the consideration that Starfleet would present him with the greatest opportunity to put his skills to good use while simultaneously aiding in the expansion of scientific discovery in the Federation.

In 2389, Javal successfully passed the rigorous admissions process for newly inducted Starfleet cadets, and he pursued the science track at the Academy, focusing primarily on exoanatomy, biochemistry, and anthropology. He was distinguished in his thorough knowledge of Vulcan and Klingon physiology in particular due to his research background, and it was this knowledge that aided him in his formal study of medicine, with a specialization in orthopedic surgery, at Starfleet Medical Academy beginning in 2393. As of 2397, Cadet Javal is currently posted to the USS Challenger as a junior medical officer on his final assignment before officially graduating the Academy.
