Character Biography

Hair: Black, worn short and in a military fashion.
Eyes: Dark Hazel.

Vulcan Facial Features: Vulcan features can range from very human-looking to slightly pronounced ridges on the brow and forehead. Va’rek tends toward looking mostly human, with a smooth brow and forehead, though the eyebrows are typically turned up in the Vulcan fashion.

Skin: Va’rek has a very pale complexion, though since he lacks red blood, the hues tend to differ from that of a human.

Born: 2359, In the coastal city of Raal, adjacent to the Vorath Sea on Vulcan.

Mother: S’ilana, Deceased.
Father: Ve’lan
Brother: Le’nal, very recently Deceased.

Marital Status: Single.

Physical:
Va’rek stands six feet, one inch tall and weighs one hundred and eighty-five pounds. Though tall and somewhat lanky looking, his frame is solid and he is stronger than most humans (Which is a typical Vulcan trait due to skeletal and muscular systems evolving in heavier gravity than Earth). He is pale, and due to his copper-based blood cells (Green Blood), flushes of color often give him a slightly green tinge instead of red or pink as a human might produce. He is generally clean and is fastidious about neatness both in his workspaces and his person.

Personality:
Like most Vulcans, Va’rek is rather direct and tends to be terse when communicating. This doesn’t mean he is entirely antisocial. Rather, Va’rek is deeply introverted and has an extensive inner life that he inhabits. He enjoys theorizing and following the train of his thought. He is also known to lapse into intense silences during deep thinking. Though he tends to avoid most social interactions, he does enjoy meaningful friendships and works to keep those friends he has made in his career a part of his life.

Interests:
Va’rek was always interested in mechanical things. Ships especially. His ability and interest dovetail fairly well. Beyond Starflight Mechanics and Propulsion theory, Va’rek also enjoys Poetry and History as well as games involving tactics and strategy. Poker, Texas Hold ‘Em, in particular, is a game he enjoys and often surprises his crewmates with his prowess therein.

Faults:
Va’rek can be stubborn and set in his ways and thinking. He is also quite oblivious to social cues and some faux pas, as are most Vulcans who did not grow up around humans. Due to his upbringing and family situation, Va’rek does not deal with emotions all that well and has trouble dealing with inner feelings at times. This can and does affect his work on occasion.

Education and Background:
Engineering is quite literally a birthright for Va’rek. He is the younger son of a rather well-known Shipwright and Propulsion Physicist on Vulcan. His father, Ve’lan, and elder brother, Le’nal, operate a laboratory which regularly consults with the Vulcan Science Academy and Vulcan Engineering Core branch of the Vulcan High Command.

Va’rek attended the Vulcan Science Academy and graduated with honors, as was expected of him by his family. However, with his brother Le’nal already in place as their father’s right hand; Va’rek made the decision to join Starfleet and study Warp theory there.

With his decision to pursue a career with Starfleet, Va’rek found himself at odds with his extremely traditional Father and Brother, and thus a rift developed in the family. Until recently, they had not spoken in many years.
