Early years Biography
The young female Orion, Zharena, was less than a month pregnant when she entered Federation custody after being caught in an illegal trafficking operation on Namir III. Born months later in the medical ward of the penal facility, Toumun was taken into the Federation foster care system.
Placements for Orions (or half Orions as the case was), even as babies, were nearly impossible. Children tended to be unruly, inconsolable, and overall difficult to work with. He bounced between five homes on three worlds before he was five. He was a quiet, darkly brooding child, often the first to throw a punch in a disagreement and easy to anger. However, he also had an intelligent subtleness about him, always thinking and calculating. In the early years, his academics suffered at the hands of people who didn’t understand his developmental or psychological needs. He was often disciplined, which led to further isolation and resentment.
When he was ten, he was placed at a settlement on Thanatos VII with a human, Edward Kreg. Kreg was widowed and had no other children of his own. Over the span of months, the two slowly developed a bond. Kreg trained the boy at home, developing his natural gifts in the areas of strength and combat, and nurturing the intelligence that he recognized could be a great asset to the boy in the future.
When the time came, Kreg coached Toumun and encouraged him to join Starfleet Academy. Toumun’s interests were in security at the time. He barely passed the entrance exams.
He entered the security track but was identified as a possible intelligence candidate based on his physical attributes and mental toughness. The idea being that he could be developed for infiltration into places that humans and other Federation races wouldn’t be able to get into. He was brought into the intelligence track formally in his third year. His academics were weak and he struggled in some area, while showing great aptitude in other areas. He was routed to a field-based program for his fourth year aboard the USS Elysium.
