|| BACKGROUND ||


Species: Tandaran
Birthplace: Tandar Prime
Homeworld: Tandar Prime
Religion/Belief System: None
Culture: In many ways his culture affected him, but he did not feel that it defined him. He certainly has a certain outlook on life that values the effort and hard work you put into something and he, like most Tandarans, embodies the phrase 'work hard, play hard'. The exposure to so many scientific opportunities and information is likely what ultimately sparked his interest in the field and he certainly received an excellent education due to where and how he was raised.

He also experienced the racial tensions and what it was like to live in fear of terrorists which he believes both makes him a stronger person and a more understanding one since he had friends who were Sulibans which made it difficult to see them as being innately bad. His mind was opened at a young age and it stayed that way.

He differs from Tandarans in that rather than having the outlook that you must always throw yourself into whatever you do whether you like it or not, he embraces that you must find something you /want/ to throw yourself into, that you love, so that work is a joy and not a task you're doing out of a sense of obligation.

|| HISTORY ||


Childhood: Jeran grew up in a nice family of upper-class citizens of Tandar Prime. He was raised during a time when the Tandaran government was still trying to make up for how it had treated the Suliban and the Cabal was a very real threat, especially to his parents, both of whom were somewhat mid-level politicians. There was comfort, but there was also a level of fear.
Adolescence: Jeran was a good student, working hard and being pushed (sometimes intensely) by his parents to succeed whenever he started to fall behind. He was a friendly, open person, and ended up making friends with some SUliban kids, creating a dichotomy between his understanding of them and the government's treatment of the group.

Adulthood to Current: As an adult, Jeran, who had always been fascinated with the stars and the tales of other races (few of whom seemed to settle on Tandar Prime) and journeying across the galaxy, chose to go into the field of Science. His younger sister became an Engineer and his brother followed their parents into politics.

Jeran left home at 17 to go to Earth and graduated with a focus on Special Relativity and Gravitational Wave Theory. He then went back to Tandar Prime and studied with their scientists at their upper level institution, earning the equivalent of a doctorate in Temporal Mechanics and a Masters in Quantum Field Theory.

At about the age of 29, Jeran moved to Vulcan to work as a researcher and assistant professor at the Vulcan Science Academy. He stayed there until 2383 when he accepted a position as a professor at Starfleet Academy.

He was a professor there for another 5 years before he was offered the position as Head of the Physics Department. In 2390 he took a one year hiatus to serve aboard the USS Dalnyr doing in-field research on the important space anomaly research he had been conducting back at the Academy.

As of now (January 2391) he is headed back to Earth so that he and his research team may fully analyze the data he has gathered and continue their research. He will continue to serve as Head of the Physics Department and teach classes as a Physics Professor.


CURRENT PROJECT: For six years now Jeran has studied Gravitational Wave Theory and the effects it has on time, particularly on deep space supermassive objects. He spent years using and being involved in improving advanced telescope technology that allowed them to view into the furthest reaches of known space and take measurements of various bodies in all dimensions and forms available to them. He would analyze data scientists gathered whenever their ships came close enough to the bodies to do so, but so far none had ever been dedicated to going out and gathering the needed data.

In 2390, Jeran was been given an opportunity on board the Dalnyr to do exactly that and the deep space vessel were able to make several close passes by various anomalies in order to allow Jeran and the rest of the science team to take detailed readings so that his valuable research may continue.

As of Jan 2391 he is heading back to the Academy to analyze the data they gathered and continue the project.

Personal Quote: Happiness is finding an answer to something you always wanted to know while discovering a new question you never knew that you didn't.

PERSONALITY

General Personality Description: Friendly, kind, sweet. Jeran has a quick smile for anyone and generally sees the good in others, but not to a naive degree. There are times he makes an effort to see the good in others, but it's an effort he believes in.

He's very intelligent and loves science and will be all too quick to dive into discussing his passion with anyone who shows the slightest interest in hearing it. Sometimes he isn't sure when to stop, getting far too caught up in what he's saying.

Jeran is very genuine, very honest, and a genuinely happy guy. He believes in pursuing that which you are passionate about with everything you have and to never be afraid of what might happen.

DND Alignment: Lawful Good
One song or type of music that deeply fits them and why? Anything sciency or a bit sappy. He's both.
If they could describe themselves as any color, what would it be and why? Yellow. He's bright, sunny, shiny and he loves stars! (He is quick to point out not all stars are yellow, but that ruins my analogy so I don't care)
Their 5 favorite anythings: Astrophysics, research & discovery, water, sports, being in love
Their 5 least favorite anythings: ignorance, confrontation, stagnation, heartbreak, the cold
List 1 surprising thing about them: Despite being an absolute nerd, he is a pretty good athlete and was on some high level sports teams as a teenager. He still likes to play whenever someone pulls a group together or sometimes plays in the holodeck.
What inspires them? New questions, challenges.
Favorite Holovision Show: Silly comedies. He doesn't have a favorite
Favorite Movie: Birth of a Daragbai - a fictional comedy presented like a scientific documentary. He can rewatch it a thousand times.
What is their favorite aspect of their own culture? The emphasis on education and science and technical pursuit that seems lacking in any other cultures he's come across.
What is the one thing they never tell anyone about themselves: He's as afraid of true failure as anyone else.
How would they spend a perfect day? On a beach somewhere in cliche perfect conditions
If they had to lose one sense, what would it be? Taste. He needs all the others for his work.
If not taken, are they looking for love or single and loving it? Looking for love (in all the wrong places)
Fight or Flight? Fight

Sunshine or rain? Sunshine
Sweet or savory? Sweet
Healthy food or junk food? Junk
Fancy clothes or casual? Casual

RELATIONSHIPS

Children: None
Closest Friend: None, really. He has some work friends, but that's all for now.
Significant Other: None

PAST

Birthplace: Tandar Prime
Where were they raised? Tandar Prime
What was their home life like? Jeran grew up in a nice family of upper-class citizens of Tandar Prime. He was raised during a time when the Tandaran government was still trying to make up for how it had treated the Suliban and the Cabal was a very real threat, especially to his parents, both of whom were somewhat mid-level politicians. There was comfort, but there was also a level of fear.

Like most Tandarans, Jeran's family valued hard work and putting your heart and soul into everything that you do and Jeran took that to heart. He and his siblings were pushed hard, sometimes perhaps too hard, in school and all three were not only encouraged, but expected to go on into upper level education. His brother got into Tandaran politics like their parents and is working his way up to hopefully becoming an ambassador for the planet someday.
Any close bonds with friends/siblings/peers?He was very close with his older brother Kordorei when they hit their teens, and less of a friend bond, but still close as siblings with his younger sister Duravi. He had best friends and groups of friends come and go throughout childhood as normal.

Favorite thing about their childhood? The opportunities for things like advanced science programs and upper level sports teams and vacations and all of the privileges he had and is very grateful for.

Least favorite thing about their childhood? Maybe occasionally being pushed a little too hard, but really there isn't much. Unless his neighbor two domiciles down who hated him and his siblings counts. She was one of the only people in his life he can honestly say he hated.

One thing they would do differently as a parent than their parents/guardian did: Spoil his children with money a little less, with love a little more. Give them a little more room to breathe and discover themselves on their own.

Describe their childhood memory that had the most impact on them? Jeran was forced to go to a science retreat (roughly science camp) one summer with his siblings because that was where the other two wanted to go (Jeran had wanted to go to a sports retreat) and his parents didn't want them separated. It was the first time he was really forced to focus on science pursuits and it was over that summer that he fell in love with it for the first time, thus altering the path the rest of his life would take.

Describe their late teen/adult memory that had the most impact on them? Having experienced the racial tensions and what it was like to live in fear of terrorists, but there were friends of his, a few he'd grown up with, who ended up joining the Sulibans. He could not bring himself to see them as innately bad, giving him a more open-minded view of the world which he still has. The memory itself is the moment he heard that two of his oldest friends had been killed in an attack against the Suliban. Most people were celebrating the success and he had no idea how to feel. It was part of what shaped him, going into his adulthood.

PRESENT

Where are they living? SS Dalnyr
What is their place like? Fine. Not overly decorated, not overly clean or dirty. Fairly run of the mill with a few things here and there that speak to who the occupant is, like a Tandaran lamp or tray of flui-filled vials.
Current Occupation: Astrophysist (researcher and professor)
Current closest friend: None
Current relationship with their family: Good

What, if anything, are they currently working toward? Gathering as much up close data as he possibly can before he goes back to Earth where he can do further research with the cadets and other staff there.
What, if anything, are they currently working ON? For six years now Jeran has studied Gravitational Wave Theory and the effects it has on time, particularly on deep space supermassive objects. He spent years using and being involved in improving advanced telescope technology that allowed them to view into the furthest reaches of known space and take measurements of various bodies in all dimensions and forms available to them. He would analyze data scientists gathered whenever their ships came close enough to the bodies to do so, but so far none had ever been dedicated to going out and gathering the needed data. Jeran has been given an opportunity on board the Dalnyr to do exactly that and the deep space vessel will make several close passes by various anomalies in order to allow Jeran and the rest of the science team to take detailed readings so that his valuable research may continue.

FUTURE

What is their ultimate goal in life? Happiness, Love, many scientific discoveries

What is their ideal career? His current one

Where do they see themselves in 10 years? Hopefully ten years further along in his research
the ultimate triumph of science
