Personal History

Personal History Not everyone on Ventax II hates technology, and Victor was one of several young people that didn't want to remain on a planet full of people who disdain technology and its practical applications. As a boy- he grew up on a farm on the northern reaches of the planet. The family was prosperous and alongside brothers and sisters, Victor learned all that he was expected to know about animal husbandry, farming and life in general.

A fascination with anything living; plant, animal or alien, caused him to turn towards a career in the sciences and medicine. He applied for early entry to Starfleet Academy and was allowed into their Junior scientist program at 16 years of age. When his family heard that he'd reached out to them for higher education dispite their arranging a marriage for him- they disowned him. This gave him a bit more freedom, but had a detrimental effect on the boy. The guardian appointed to him was a half Vulcan named Shariek, newly appointed to the program. It was as healthy a relationship as one could hope for, but the boy still missed his sisters and brother.

The vulcan education was extensive, allowing him to graduate from the academy at the age of 20. The academy was a bit of a wake up call for him as it was the first time in his life that she'd truly felt both challenged and valued as an individual. While initially pursuing being a doctor, he discovered a love for pure research and a streak of laziness in his study habits that were barely enough with his intelligence to get him the marks for Starfleet medical. He made it through, but only just...spending a brief period on academic probation so he might best figure out what he really wanted to do with his life. The answer was both medicine and research, and he threw himself into studying with a passion once he and his academic advisor determined that he could do both. He is an avid medical researcher, and often uses his book knowledge to further medical science. Sometimes he gets so deeply involved in his research that he forgets that he needs to do mundane things like eat and sleep. His fascination for all things alien had dimmed, and grown into a more mature- less childlike fascination. Though he's still quite happy for those people of cultures not his own, to describe them to him in detail.

He is most often found with a book in his hand and buried in a tale from long ago. Preferring fiction and fantasy novels to anything else he has a huge collection of books. While he realizes the difficulty in carrying these from one place to another- he does use padds, to read the books he has that he doesn't take with him. He also like to sketch, and can sometimes be found in the corner of the lounge sketching his crew-mates or the ship itself. He's embarrassed about his skill but is actually quite talented.
