Character Biography

Appearance:
Often stays disguised in a human form, 6’ male with wavy blond hair, green eyes, and pale rosy skin.
His natural appearance is coral-colored, with five greenish-yellow eyes and six tentacles.

Personality:
The main reason Todd wanted to become a counselor was to be helpful, or as he calls it, a “producer”. As a counselor, he has great respect for the privacy of others, and often prefers to help them in more subtle ways rather than putting their problems on display all at once.

Like many in his species, Todd naturally avoids direct conflict. He is not above using his shape-shifting abilities to simply hide and wait out a problem. When confronted, he will often misled, redirect, or omit information, rather than directly lie. This mixed with his need for privacy might contribute to the idea that Vandorians are intentionally or maliciously deceitful.

Background:
Todd Nyman was one of an unknown number of Vendorians who were, allegedly, “forcibly recruited” as Romulan spies. After defecting to the Federation each one was given a new identity and protection. As part of this agreement, they were to hide their true identities, including their species.

Todd posed as a 20 year old human male and attended college in his new home state of Kansas. Eventually he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Phycology and Master’s in Counseling. He joined Star Fleet initially to complete the training required for his certification. However, he stayed on as a ship’s counselor after earning his certification.

It was agreed that his species should be revealed to a limited number of trusted officers, including all of his immediate superior officers. Who else was permitted to know was up to the discretion of those superior officers. Also, in accordance with the treaties regarding Vendorians, he is explicitly prohibited from engaging in any espionage activities against the Romulan Empire.

Fun Facts:
- Todd has a surgically implanted rfid chip to verify his identity no matter what form he takes.
- Star Fleet made Todd re-take his counseling certification “to make sure it was really him who passed.”
- Despite being able to shapeshift, Todd is consistently lactose intolerant.
