Character Biography


Physical Description

Ensign Baht is a bolian male with light blue skin and dark blue streaks running across his bald scalp that match his eyes. Shon has a slimmer face and build than most bolian men, but has the signature bifurcating cartilage ridge running down the middle of his face, extending from his upper chest, up his chin, nose, forehead, along his cranium and down his spine to his upper back. Shon is lithe and nimble, and has pleasant, friendly features that may appear boy-ish to others.

“You know, I think if we made the medical uniforms a couple shades lighter, they wouldn’t clash so much with my skin tone.”


Personality

Shon is good-natured and quite the talker, embracing the bolian tendency for friendliness and extroversion. However, he does generally seem to have good manners and is as much interested in listening as he is in talking. Shon is very approachable and unintimidating, and is usually the optimistic mediator in situations involving conflict. Shon often offers advice and alternative perspectives (even when not asked) to others around him.

“I’m not going to tell you to NOT keep that bore worm as a pet, but just know that if you do, you and I are going to become even better friends than we already are.”


Profession

Ensign Baht completed Star Fleet medical training with less-than-stellar marks, but was nonetheless commended for his bedside manner and clinical reasoning skills. He values common-sense, sensitive medicine over encyclopedic knowledge. He also prioritizes comfort and caution over speed of treatment. Shon relies on the computer and other technology heavily for medical knowledge that he seems to often forget, but feels confident in his ability to interact with patients in a way that is beneficial to their recovery.

“I know I’m asking a lot of questions, but believe me when I say your emotional health, social health, spiritual health, and mental health are JUST as important.”


Biography

Born on the bolian homeworld of Bolarus IX shortly before the start of the Dominion War, Shon’s childhood was wrought with anxiety about the approaching warfront. Stories of the conflict and its casualties inspired Shon to seek opportunities to help and heal others, and he developed an admiration for Star Fleet upon hearing about their valiant efforts to push back to Dominion forces. Shon religiously pursued a career in Star Fleet, even moving to Earth to complete secondary education in San Francisco before applying to the academy.

“All I’ve ever wanted to do was help people. Only recently have I started to realize how complicated that goal is.”


Medical

Ensign Baht has never been a risk-taker, which has likely spared him from a good number of injuries or illnesses. His time spent studying medicine from an early age and constant presence in medical environments imbued Shon with with ample understanding of bodily health. Medical scans show a healthy bolian man (blue blood, enormous intestines, and right-sided heart included) with no lasting conditions or aliments.

“Wow, please remind me to never do leg day the night before a twelve hour shift ever again. Can you check my blood pressure real quick?”
