Air filled her lungs and for a moment she held it before carefully exhaling. “I don’t know if it’s simply because I’m an empath, or because of our belief system, or some strange combination of the two. I do know that when we are in moments of great distress, we have the ability to pick up the other’s distress. So far, there’s only been two very distinct moments where distance has not been a factor.”

Ghubari sipped on the whiskey and felt it slip warmly down her throat. “Tell me something unusual about your family I don’t already know.”

Benjamin let out a nervous snort, an amused chuckle that he didn’t have time to stifle. He looked at his drink and after a moment seemed to make a decision. He took another careful sip “Well in the early days of Starfleet the first member of my Clan left Earth, my ancestor Charles Grey was the first Grey to leave the Sol system, I’ve read some of his journals from the time. A brilliant scientist and absolute madman, he did dangerous experiments on himself and his…” There was a slight pause “Reproductive system, He was trying to cure some debilitating neural disease that he didn’t disclose to the Fleet, made him see things.” Ben shook a hand casually in dismissal forgoing the rest of the long story.

“These experiments didn’t show a negative effect in his children, in fact, it seemed to work until the late 23rd century when my Great Grandfather was afflicted, it seemed his mother had a dormant genetic defect that reactivated this neural disease. He did experiments to heal himself which brings us to me” He pointed at himself for emphasis and humor “High intelligence, excellent memory and the nose of a bloodhound” He smiled absentmindedly “Since I and my family were not directly genetically manipulated and the fact that high intelligence is somewhat of a family trait we’ve not been ostracized from Federation society. the only genetic advantage I have is the ability to ‘sense’ people as it were” He raised the locket “You’ve seen me use this a couple of times, it helps calm the effect, the human mind wasn’t designed to handle such nasal prescision.”

Ghubari nodded. “I remember you explaining the locket briefly when you first came aboard, but the origins of your… ability, are interesting. I can understand why the Federation hasn’t really had a case to take action, grey area that it is.” She glanced at him and smirked. “No pun intended.”

Ben snorted happily at her unintended joke.

“What the worst situation for you to be in? Anything I should know about, just in case?”

Benjamin took a moment to consider “Well new worlds, especially in pre-warp societies can be overwhelming. Pheremones can also affect it but I take other medication to counter that once a month. All in all it makes for a decent party trick and occationally helps me diagnose my patients when I am without scanning equipment, or helps focus where I should focus my attention. It’s partly why I was so surprised by your revelation by your leg, biosynth legs usually have a distinctive smell.” He took a whiff of his drink “But more than anything else it simply makes life enjoyable, being able to know things about stuff and people.”
