Biography
Born on, what would be in Earth’s calendar 6 July 2363, the same year as Jean-Luc Picard assumed command of the Enterprise. He grew up in the rural town of K’taal , located 220 km towards the inland from Raal, on Vulcan, as the younger child (he has an older brother, 7 years his senior, named Lavel). He found an early interest in suus mahna – the Vulcan martial art – becoming increasingly proficient at it as he grew older.

He majored in Earth studies in university, graduating 2382, and took up a position in the Vulcan representation to the Federal Council in Paris, on Earth, staying there until he joined Star Fleet Academy, graduating in 2390. His first posting, as a security ensign, was on the all-Vulcan-crewed USS Raal. Perhaps it was due to his knowledge of Earth studies (he had particularly found motivation in Sun Tzu’s Art of War (along with Vulcan commentaries), but he brought a unique different way of looking at security issues as a Vulcan, allowing for more consideration of chaos and “illogic” in people’s behaviours. This brought him an early commendation from his commanding officer, and by 2393 he was acting chief of security on the small Raal (similar size to an Intrepid-class ship). He asked for transfer to a less Vulcan-dominated ship, and moved on to the USS Endeavour in 2395, where he returned to normal security roles as a junior-grade lieutenant. He found mentorship in his calm-natured, but always smiling, Denobulan chief-of-security, Malwax, and learnt much on various leadership qualities. Malwax mentored Shock in leadership, and helped him study for various department-head-level exams, which led to Shock’s transfer to the Athena in 2398 for his new position as chief of security.

Personality
Despite being mocked or teased for his name by humans, Shock (with a much more poetic meaning in his native language) is as unusual as an extraverted Vulcan. He’s still very much a Vulcan though. He has a curious inquisitive mind.

He has an interest in politics and cross-cultural communication, including history and psychology.

He keeps a diary (using ink and paper) where he practises his Vulcan penmanship and relates his days. He does meditation regularly, and works out in the gym in various, new ways, to keep his body fit and able.

As revealed in posts
- On the USS Endeavour, he was a security officer under Malwax (a Denobulan security chief). Malwax had mentored Shock.
- Shock keeps a couple of drawing made by the Klingon young boy majQu’, who Shock, with colleagues, had rescued along with the boy’s parents.
- Shock feels extra protective of children
- Shock inherited his Vulcan-style formalwear from maternal grandfather, who died in 2397, with whom he bore much likeness
