Rank Lieutenant JG


Character Information

Gender Male
Species Human
Age 25

Physical Appearance

Height 6
Weight 160
Hair Color Black
Eye Color Green
Physical Description Tayran has a somewhat exotic look and is bi-racial. His mother is black and his father Caucasian. He has a mocha colored complexion that is a combination of his mixed heritage. His hair is jet-black, medium length with a controlled unruliness and clearly comes from his father’s side. His eyes are forest green and he has a thin, almost aristocratic nose that he inherited from his mother.

Kentaurus’ gravity is 0.74 that of Earth so its inhabitants are taller and thinner than the average Terran, and Tayran is no exception to this norm. To compensate for that he spends a lot of time in the gym and has since he started at the Academy. That combined with his favorite sport of rock climbing has given him a well-defined torso and six-pack. However, except for his arms, which are also well-defined, he looks average with a shirt on. When he is shirtless, it’s very easy to see just how well he takes care of himself.

His right eye was severely damaged when he was a prisoner of war and had to be removed. It was replaced by a cybernetic eye. The iris of that eye is a little larger than his left eye, the difference isn’t too noticeable except up close. The appearance adds to his exotic look and gives him normal sight, but it doesn’t give him any enhanced abilities.



Family

Spouse urrently he is single and doesn’t have a partner. Ideally he would like to find Mr. Right, his Prince Charming, rather than a hook up with Mr. Right Now. However, his normally flirtatious tone has gotten him in some sticky situations and he has fallen to temptation.

Personality & Traits

General Overview His relationship with his parents in the past was strained because of his straying from the path they desired for him as well as losing his moral footing for a time and getting mixed up with the wrong people. While they’re still not 100% sold on Starfleet and there is still disagreement on their pacifist attitude, things are much better than they once were.

He’s always gotten on well enough with his siblings, but they were never super close because his career path and personal choices were much different than their own.

He tends to be an intuitive rather than an analytical thinker. He quite literally flies by the seat of his pants.

He has gotten better at not speaking his mind unless asked, but he still has an occasional issue in that regard.

While he would prefer to be around others, when he is alone he is quiet and likes to read or meditate.
Tayran is comfortable enough in social settings, especially one on one, but he is hardly a social butterfly. He will seldom initiate a conversation unless it’s required of him, but once engaged he can become quite amiable and animated.

He is generally calm under pressure under stress, or when he finds himself in a dangerous situation. But he does have a temper and it can sometimes be goaded into making a poor decision(like jumping into the fray instead of walking away).
Strengths & Weaknesses He’s an excellent pilot, with great intuitive skills. At the same time, he does tend to be overconfident. He doesn’t come off as a typical cocky pilot, however. Instead, he tends to be a risk-taker who will understate the risk.

ONE THING THEY STRUGGLE WITH:
He barely meets the minimal requirements for phaser training and you wouldn’t want him manning the tactical station on board ship.

ONE THING THEY WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT THEM:
That despite his past, he is no longer a badboy and has a strong moral compass.

ONE THING THEY HOPE PEOPLE WILL NEVER KNOW:
What went on during his eight months in captivity

WORST HABIT:
He is overconfident. He doesn’t come off as a typical cocky pilot, however. Instead, he tends to be a risk-taker who will understate the risk.

WORST FEAR:
Claustrophobia

WORST VICE:
While he is working on it, his impatience sometimes he will voice his opinion even when it’s not asked for.
Ambitions He would like to pilot the next newest, fastest ship. Like many Starfleet officers, he would like to have his own command, preferably a frigate or some other small, fast, maneuverable ship. Personally, he would like to find his Prince Charming.
Hobbies & Interests Rock climbing Any sport that emphasizes good hand-eye coordination over brute strength including ravdi which is an Erimosian game that closely resembles the oldTerran game of lacrosse. Bonsai. Reading

Personal History Tayran was born on Rigel Kentaurus on Sept 2, 2234, to Eli and Joann Wayne. His father is a climatologist, his mother a botanist. They were part of a Federation team of scientists who were terraforming the planet.

He was reading by the time he was five and had a strong interest in astronomy, it looked as if he would follow in his parents and siblings footsteps and become a scientist or engineer like them.

At age eight, his best friend Ryan’s father gave him his first ride on a shuttlepod letting him sit in the pilot’s seat and “fly” the ship. He was hooked at that point and knew in his eight-year-old mind that he would become an astronomer that could pilot himself around.

At age twelve he started to pester his parents for taking official piloting lessons. They did not allow that, but he started to take unofficial lessons from Ryan’s father. He began to question both his parents’ pacifism and his dream of being an astronomer.

He came out to his parents as gay at the age of fourteen.and was accepted for who he was

Two significant events took place when he was fifteen. His parents allowed him to start taking official lessons, and he got his first boyfriend Jacob Longmyer the son of an engineer who was also part of the Federation team. Jacob had a well-deserved reputation of a badboy that made poor decisions and ran with the wrong crowd.

His parents disapproved of the relationship both because of the boys' ages(Jacob was three years older and Tayran was too young)and Jacob’s reputation. That along with Tayran’s now open questioning of their pacifism and his formal rejection of his plans to pursue astronomy was the beginning of estrangement from his parents.

At age seventeen he got his pilot’s license He and Jacob were now joined at the hip and were inseparable, or so Tayran thought. But Jacob’s badboy persona went beyond his bad decisions and poor choice of friends. Tayran was not the only guy he was seeing.

He convinced Tayran into joining a group of smugglers as their pilot. The biracial teen was hooked because of his love for Jacob and the promise of a source of gold-pressed latinum The estrangement from his parents grew.

Tayran was told the group was smuggling medical supplies and didn’t question Jacob or anyone or dig too deep. After almost two years he found out that Jacob was cheating on him and that the group was actually smuggling stolen photon torpedos and phaser emitters.

Both revelations were devastating to him and he did the only thing he could think of doing, he went back to his parents for advice. Even though they were not particularly fond of Starfleet, who they felt were becoming too militaristic, encouraged him to go to them.

He did and turned himself in, turning state’s evidence. As part of the deal, he joined Starfleet and entered the Academy.

His piloting skills were impeccable and his underlying natural talent was outstanding. As he graduated to bigger ships his skills continued to excel. Though he did spend a lot of time in the simulator to help hone his talents.

He was otherwise a rather pedestrian student, in the middle of this class. Stung by Jacob’s betrayal he acted out by hooking up with as many guys as he could during his tenure.

He left the Academy with a reputation of a crackerjack helmsman who was something of a risk-taker and given his past role as a smuggler an affinity for one-night stands and a not so occasional speaking his mind when he was invited to do so as a badboy.

Four months into the war a shuttlepod he was piloting was destroyed by the Klingons and he and the rest of the crew aboard were captured. He spent the next eight months as a prisoner of war.

The experience, which he has only discussed with counselors, did change him, giving him a darker edge. It didn’t break him, however, and it only slightly diminished his risk-taking.
