Character Biography

.
Appearance:
Just under three feet in height, Sathut (or Sath, as he is called by his friends) is quite tall for his species, although not too remarkably so. Being the height he is, is akin to a human male being something like 6 and a half feet tall.
He is built like all of his species, and appears to be a bipedal cat. Just think Puss in Boots from Shrek, and you’ve got exactly the picture.
Coloring and fur texture for Raka is rather varied, and Sathut himself has the coloring of a dark tabby - with a white belly, tip of tail, lower legs and forearms, and ‘muzzle’. See image for example of how his coloration works: sta.sh/0187kzb0o4ak
He is extremely agile, able to leap from the ground at least 5 feet into the air, and thus has no issue reaching consoles and such (he just perches on the edge with his incredible balance)
History:
Sathut, being the middle of a large family, wasn’t really one to get in trouble, but he did find himself mediating problems among his siblings fairly commonly. He found himself intrigued by subjects such as psychology, and instead of following the family tradition of going into engineering, 8 (like 17) year old Sath applied to medical school to learn how to be a counselor. This move inspired his younger brother Ruvu to go to school for art, and their little sister Res to pursue music.
After finishing his schooling on Galdor at the age of 11, (like 23ish) Sathut pursued a deeper education, getting into Starfleet to learn more about the psychology of other races, how to counsel them, and so forth. All the qualities needed for a ship’s counselor. Like others of his species, he was put through an accelerated study due to his shorter lifespan - the Raka only live to be about 60-70, in comparison to humanity’s 110-120 year life expectancy - and graduated in only three years instead of the usual 6 for medical-related schooling, at the age of 14. After a two year stint as a Junior Counselor on the USS Brackenreid, he found himself stepping proudly onto the deck of the USS Olympic for his first day as an official senior counselor.
Family:
Sathut is the middle child of seven siblings.
His mother’s name is Ee’re, his father is Mookru.
He has four brothers (Umva, Ruvu, Hauv and Saruk) and two sisters (Mith and Res).

Species Information:
The Raka are one of five sentient species on their home planet.
Laleri- Lupine, wolf-like creatures. Human-level intelligence.
Raka- Small feline creatures, similar in size and anatomy to Rocket Racoon. Human-level intelligence, not great at language.
Hatriku- highly adaptable reptilian creatures, humanoid. Human-level intelligence.
Arwan- Bipedal deer/goat-like creatures, two to three feet in stature.
Pipini- aquatic creatures vaguely similar to dolphins. Low-level sentience.
These races grew up on a single planet together, and co-operate impressively. When the races gained space flight, it was the Hatriku in positions of command, Laleri in security, Arwan as science and medical officers, and the Raka as engineers. Those of the Pipini tend to prefer not to leave their oceans. They developed Warp roughly around the mid to late 1900s (earth time), and had warp about 1 warp factor higher than earth by the time they were encountered by a human vessel around 2250. The planet of Galdor is in an appropriate sector for them to have been discovered in the stated time period. After much deliberation and consideration, and after sending a group of officers to be a part of Starfleet on diplomatic loan, they finally joined the Federation around 2290.
