Picture of Captain Th’elin Zareth. (TBD)

Andorian Facial Features:
Andorians have a mostly human facial structure but have a pair of prehensile antennae which emerge either from the front or sides of their upper foreheads. Various brow ridges that accentuate these antennae come in a wide variety, differing slightly due to genetic structure and gender. These Antennae evolved to detect minute changes in atmospheric pressure, as well as heat fluctuations and magnetic field variations. Evolutionarily speaking, this was due to Andorians living in subsurface ice and stone tunnels. Their extra senses were used to detect cave-ins, collapses, and various other changes in their habitat. With some training and a lot of difficulties, the Antennae can even be used as short-range sensors to detect life signs. This makes it quite difficult to sneak up on a properly trained Andorian. Th’elin’s Antennae are rooted toward the edges of his forehead rather than dramatically placed at the sides of his head. He has subtle brow ridges that join at the bridge of his nose and lead to the base of each Antennae. Th’elin has an oval-shaped face with high cheekbones and a well-defined jaw. He keeps himself clean-shaven except for the generous sideburns he keeps neatly cultivated.

Skin:
Andorians and their Cousins the Aenar come in a variety of hues, often denoting gender and family traits. Th’elin’s skin is light blue like most Thaan Males of his species and region.

Born:
2212, Born in Laikan, the Capital City of the Moon Andoria which orbits the Gas Giant Andor.

Andorian Physiology and Family Structure:
Andorians have four distinct Genders and procreation requires all four sexes to participate. Thus, Andorian Families tend to be rather complex. Clan hierarchies further complicate Andorian culture. The Shen Female generates the Gametes, which is fertilized by both the Chan and Thaan Males. The resulting Egg is then transferred and brought to term in the Zhen Female who then gives birth to the child.

Zhen (Mother): Zh’laren Zareth
Shen (Mother): Sh’iren Zareth
Chan (Father): Ch’Taal Zareth
Thaan (Father): Th’shaan Zareth, Deceased.
Siblings:
Ch’Sil Zareth (Brother), Deceased.
Th’aan Zareth (Brother)
Zh’reen Zareth (Sister)

Marital Status: Single

Physical:
Th’ellin stands five feet, nine inches tall, and has an average build, though he tends toward being lean rather than muscular. He is physically fit, has white hair, dark eyes, and the hue of his skin tone is light blue. Perhaps not classically handsome, Th’elin does have a certain charm about him. For his species, he is considered of average height and build; by human standards, he’s a little on the thin side.

Personality:
On the surface, Th’elin is jovial and upbeat. He’s quick-witted and tends to use humor to win others to his way of thinking. However, deeper in his psyche, there’s a dark streak of intensity. The inner Th’elin prizes loyalty and courage, often a clannish viewpoint, yet he honors those he works and interacts with. He is as genuine a man as one might find in Starfleet, despite having layers and being somewhat difficult to get to know well.

Interests:
As a boy, Th’elin was fascinated by Space Flight and often dreamed his days away about traveling to other worlds and exploring space. Having achieved that goal, Th’elin found himself in need of a hobby or two. He reads extensively, often going through two or three books at one time. Th’elin also studies astronomy and stellar cartography. As a hobby, he sometimes builds miniature models.

Faults:
Andorians, in general, tend to be hot-headed and quick to anger. This is due to physiology as much as culture and history, as the Andorian metabolism is much faster and hotter than the Human or Vulcan metabolism. Th’elin, in particular, has a quick temper and a short fuse. However, he’s come to have excellent self-control and has learned to not allow his anger to have any power over him. Despite this, it is an ongoing battle. Also, the age-old animosity between Andorians and Vulcans does come in to play in his character, though it is a thing he struggles to deal with.

Education and Background:
Th’ellin was raised in the Capital City of Laikan, on Andor. He hails from a military family with a long clan history of service both to the Andorian Imperial Guard and Starfleet. His early schooling involved the preparatory basics of Galactic History, Astronavigation, and Stellar Cartography; upon completion, Th’ellin volunteered for a two-year stint with the Imperial Guard as was customary, before continuing his education at Starfleet Academy. The Zarath Clan was one of a few of the larger Clans on Andoria to make a genuine effort to be part of the United Federation of Planets, sending many sons and daughters to Starfleet rather than insisting they pursue careers with the Imperial Guard.
