Character Biography


Physical Description

Veyn is a tan-skinned denobulan man in his early thirties who displays the signature temporal and chin ridges of his race, as well as the vertical indention down his forehead. Compared to other denobulans, Veyn’s hairline is rather proceeding and his dark brown hair is thick, curly, and shaggy, a trait that might make him more attractive by human standards, but less so to other denobulans. Veyn’s triangular eyebrows are similarly bushy and dark. Veyn is of medium height and build, fit but not exceptionally so. His eyes are an olive green color and framed by smile lines. Overall, Veyn has a friendly and unimposing demeanor, with a hint of bookishness.

“I tend to be of the opinion that there is something quite attractive about being utterly average.”


Personality

Veyn is incredibly curious, almost to a fault. He is prone to asking questions and rarely takes things at face value, instead preferring to form hypotheses about deeper implications and testing them through further probing. This invasiveness can sometimes be off-putting, but Veyn is good-intentioned in his attempts to understand others on a more profound level, just as he would a scientific theory. Veyn can also seem flippant at times, a disposition that contrasts starkly with his intelligence.

“I apologize for answering a question with a question, but may I ask why you posed that question?”


Profession

Although trained in a wide variety of sciences, Veyn is a chemist by trade, with his personal experiments and research focusing on investigating foreign substances found throughout the galaxy at a molecular level. Veyn graduated from Starfleet Academy about a decade ago with flying colors, and has held multiple positions on various Starfleet research vessels, which typically followed up on the explorations of larger ships to conduct more detailed scientific reporting of new phenomenon. Veyn has been noted to be a stellar team member who is open-minded and enthusiastic when faced with obstacles.

“Science vessels are wonderful, but they end up getting the scraps… it’s not as exciting to rediscover something, now is it?”


Biography

Veyn was born on the denobulan homeworld of Denobula, where he had a happy childhood as a member of an extended communal family unit. Noted for his intellect, Veyn was selected to attend Starfleet Academy, where he discovered his love for chemistry and science. Upon graduating from the Academy, Veyn took a year off before assignment to his first vessel to return home, where he met and quickly married his first two husbands. Veyn has one adopted son with one of his husbands, but his return to duty in Starfleet has put his personal relationships on pause, and he has yet to find his third traditional partner.

“I miss Sprax in the morning and I miss Dixilan at night. But my son, Xaxier… I miss him all the time.”


Medical

Veyn has had several incidents of chemical burns on his forearms, and although they were repaired with dermal regenerators, these incidents have left portions of his skin discolored. Veyn has also lost most of his sense of smell due to exposure to strong chemicals and inhalants, although if asked he will respond that he prefers being spared from the strong odors of his work. Additionally, Veyn gets regular treatments for his lungs to ensure that he is flushing any chemicals he might have inhaled out of his system completely.

“I actually grew to like the smell of hydrogen chloride, until all of my olfactory sensory neurons burned off.”
