Character Biography

Shinzak was born on Remus to a family of enslaved miners, toiling day after day, year after year to produce dilithium for the Romulan military machine. Shinzak, expectedly, followed exactly the same path, working in the mines beside his kin as his forefathers had done for a few centuries.

Shinzak, however, was different. His natural intelligence mixed with natural charisma made him an excellent leader and an excellent manager. Slaves that were genuinely exceptional were promoted to manager. They were still enslaved, mind you, but had some authority over the other slaves.

He proved himself time and time again far more capable than his Romulan slave lords, something that annoyed them greatly. Eventually, after being disrespected for the umpteenth time, decided to do something about it. Taking advantage of a window of opportunity due to a meeting of Romulan managers on nearby Romulus, he led a slave revolt, killing various Romulan military personnel in the process. While eventually the rebelling miners were mostly gunned down, Shinzak managed to make the mine explode, denying the Romulan Star Empire its most efficient source of dilithium. Escaping capture, he commandeered a ship through the neutral zone into Federation space, only after blaring on Federation comm signals that he was a political refugee.

After arriving in Federation space, he joined up with a community of Reman exiles on planet Earth. He lectured mining engineering as a civilian at the Starfleet Academy only to then work with the Federation Bureau of Minerals as a prospector and economic analyst. Eventually he was promoted to CEO of OED V Minerals Corporation, the state-owned mining corporation of OED V.
