Personality & Traits

General Overview Like most Vulcans, Sterek is rational and calm. However, recent evaluations have labelled him as remarkably tolerant and compassionate, sometimes to a fault. He is highly averse to unnecessary violence, and while he will rarely stoop to insubordination, if something disagrees with his principles, he will make his objections known. He displays a willingness to socialize with others that is not often seen in Vulcans, and will occasionally share pictures of his cat, Eddy, in an attempt to build a rapport with others.

Weaknesses: Stubbornness, occasional arrogance, moral paternalism
Ambitions To leave the galaxy a better place after his death than it was before he was born.
Hobbies & Interests Cats, Suus Mahna, classical music.

Personal History Sterek was born to an ancient and highly traditional clan in Da-Leb province on Vulcan, and grew up with a large extended family.

Following the wishes of his parents, Sterek attended a provincial Medical University before entering Starfleet Academy at the age of 21. Early evaluations marked Sterek as a determined, ambitious, and highly intelligent individual, if not also quite arrogant. He was serving as a medical officer aboard the USS Chrysippus at the time of his wife's death.

In the year 2375, his betrothed mate, T'Zara, shot herself in the head with an unsecured Starfleet firearm shortly before they were due to be married. She had previously implored Sterek to break off their arranged marriage, but Sterek had refused. Rather than declare ritual combat, and risk the death of the woman she loved, T'Zara made a rash and tragic decision whilst experiencing early symptoms of pon farr, and her suicide caused a considerable rift between the two clans.

The loss of his wife changed Sterek's outlook significantly. At his own request, he transferred away from the USS Chrysippus to engage in planet-based and humanitarian services, gaining qualifications and experience in Starfleet Operations. His lobbying of various internal departments to provide greater aid to planets in need and to revise Starfleet policies on issues such as the Cardassian Demilitarized Zone may have hampered his career progression somewhat, but he soon became regarded as an expert on medical logistics in high-conflict zones, as well as refugee camps and internally-displaced populations, and in 2387 was enlisted help with the fallout from the Hobus disaster.

In 2390, during a humanitarian assignment on a non-federation planet referred to as Aidoni, a sudden and unexpected coup by anti-government insurgents resulted in Sterek and his fellow personnel being taken hostage. For the next seventeen days he and twelve others were subjected to torture and mistreatment as part of an effort to persuade the Federation to provide their captors with military aid. Following the successful extraction of the nine survivors by Starfleet, Sterek took an extended leave of absence to recover from the ordeal, which was both physically and psychologically damaging.

On his return to the service, he was assigned to an internal Starfleet policy department to advise on humanitarian issues. He has yet to return to active duty.

Sterek maintains no further contact with his birth family. However, he maintains sporadic contact with his intended in-laws and has on occasion participated in memorial rituals for T'Zara, and in 2391, he obtained a cat.
