____________________________________________ PERSONAL HISTORY:

Erikk grew up an orphan on Turkanna IV the second child of three. While he was still very young both his parents died and so Erikk and his little sister Tia were left to be raised by his brother Kieran.

Due to the unrest in Turkanna IV the three lived in the underground faction. In order to better protect his younger siblings, Kieran joined one of the many gangs that ran down there. However, for Erikk, Kierans gang provided just as of a threat as it did protection. Kieran didn’t believe that Tia or Erikk should join a gang if they didn’t want to, but many other members disagreed. They thought that if Kieran was a member than the other two should be as well. So despite being afraid of Kieran, the other gang members would try to scare Erikk into joining the gang as well.

On top of that, Erikk grew up running from potential rival gang members hoping to use him to get to his brother. Kieran’s protection was only useful Kieran was actually there. Although Kieran soon grew to be feared well enough that Tia and Erikk were eventually left alone it wasn’t always like that. When Erikk was 9 he caught Ichar (Kieran’s right hand man) working for a rival gang. Knowing he was caught Ichar told the gang that Erikk was Kieran’s brother and the gang caught Erikk and tortured him horrifically until he fell into unconsciousness. When Erikk came to Ichar threatened kill him if he told Kieran that Ichar was a traitor. Terrified, little Erikk complied and Ichar carried him back to Kieran. Ichar told Kieran that he had found Erikk like that and that it probably had been another gang. When Kieran asked Erikk if that is what happened, the young boy cried but because of Ichars threat he was scared to say a word, especially as Ichar was still there. As a child he took the threat literally and didn’t utter more than the odd single word here and there for a long time afterward. To this day Erikk never told Kieran (or anyone else) what happened. Although it was his main reason for wanting to escape Turkanna IV with (ore without) his family.

It wasn’t until his late teens when he was able to escape and managed to make his way to earth. However, when he went to leave neither Kieran nor Tia went with him. Kieran was too comfortable in his gang position and Tia was too heavily pregnant to want to leave. Feeling that it was his only chance to escape the planet Erikk left. A choice he still questions to this day. He worked on several cargo ships before finally settling on Earth. On one such cargo ship he frequently ran into Starfleet Officers and fell for the ideal that Starfleet was to bring peace to the galaxy. He eventually made his way to earth where he worked as a gardener to get by until he enrolled in Starfleet Academy in his early 20’s. Without much prior education he struggled through the Academy only excelling in Botany where he had any background. Due to his past life on Turkanna IV he kept to himself and struggled to make friends in the Academy.

When he graduated he was assigned to the U.S.S Genesis as it’s Abortium keeper, before taking medical leave after contracting an illness that left him drained for a long time. When he returned he was temporarily assigned on the U.S.S Trident, before accepting a postion on the U.S.S Olympic as it’s CSO.

_______________________________________________COUNSELLING FILE:

“Counsellors File Stardate: 66163, with the wide range of candidates that StarFleet accepts, means I get to see a broad spectrum of future officers as they enter into the Acadamy. Not every planet has the ability to educate their people to the same standard StarFleet requires, so every year a few select students marked with potential are evaluated, and if they pass are accepted here at the Acadamy. My last patient; Cadet Mendez is one such candidate, whilest his grade average is low, it is a reflection on his lack of learning rather than general intelligence. Cadet Mendez is a very quiet individual who is loath to talk about himself. His origins from Turkanna IV is unusual given the planet has been in unrest for several years and rumoured to be run by gangs. No matter how hard I tried I could not get him to open up about his youth leading me to believe that the planet is still just as full of unrest as I have been led to believe. Despite this he seems to be of sound mind and I will be interested to see how this young man develops into the future,” CNS Lieutenant Ashurst

Personality:

Erikk prefers to keep to himself and especially likes to avoid conflict. He hates talking about himself, but is a great listener, though that may be because he is so quiet. He tends to have an aversion to people with blonde hair (especially males).
