Height - 7"6 - Average height for his race.
Eye colour - Bright blue
Hair colour/lengths - Like all Sequusians, S'hib is covered from Hoof to brow in thick but very short dark grey hair, with the occasional white splotch in various locations over his body, His long thick white mane is kept tied up in a neat braid with various ornamental silver cuffs, And his white tail is tied up into a small knot so as not to get in the way of any duties he might have
Slim but Muscular physique
Tall and long-limbed with large hoofed feet at the end of each hind leg.
The Sequus are a Humanoid bipedal species that have been described by Starfleet officers as Resembling closely with earth Equine populations, Though somehow at the same time completely alien.
Both sexes are noted as having long muscular legs which are similar in appearance to the hind legs of an earth horse, This also includes large hooves at the end of each extremity.
Males within the race are known to be broader and physically larger compared to their female counterparts, but only by a small margin, Whereas the females have less pronounced and more rounded features, typically having a shorter nasal bone and overall shorter length to their skull.
Skin and overall hair colours and pattern can vary greatly from each individual Sequus to the point it is used as a form of universal identification similar to how every human fingerprint is unique, Hair length can also vary greatly depending from which hemisphere and climate an individual has originated from.
The Sequus also possess long flowing tails and thick manes that run down the ridge of their back, sometimes connecting to the tail hair with some individuals. Both manes and tails are usually tied up in an ornate fashion, using jewellery or patterned fabric to express themselves.
The Sequus are rather a unique race, with strikingly different ideologies and way of social thinking.
This became immediately apparent during First contact with Starfleet personnel as the Sequus do not wear any clothing, Though no offence was caused towards either party, future diplomatic talks became rather notable experiences for any Starfleet envoys.
Sequus family units are also an oddity in regards to the fact the entire species appears to be romantically and socially fluid, resembling human pansexuality. Family units grow into large "herds" numbering into the hundreds whom all care for the young, procreate together and otherwise see no distinction between each other aside from their personality.
This has lead to members of the species struggling to live off world as the social barriers and emotional red tape of other species is overwhelmingly confusing.
Those that have moved off-world did so with children and the help of Starfleet, in the hopes that younger individuals would be able to adapt to a new environment better than those already integrated fully with Sequus society.
S'hib is a rather awkward person, his life growing up away from his own people has left him in a somewhat strange place, neither fully adjusted to Starfleet life, nor able to understand the nuances of social interaction between humans, everything for him is far more complicated than it should be.
His own people and their culture have left them woefully unable to adapt to life off-world.
He finds clothing to be very restricting and unnecessary but understands very few cultures see them the same way as the Sequus do. As with many things, The Sequus do them rather differently.
Enjoying various types of music as well as a flair for cooking S'hib spends the majority of his time not on shift hiding away in his quarters, a place he can stop pretending and doesn't have to over analyse every situation so as not to cause upset.
In fairness he is lonely, he just doesn't realise it.
Name - S'hib
Age - 23
Sex - Male
Orientation - Fluid as the Sequus race form large but close-knit groups "herds" in their society, As such, their social and sexual conducts are vastly more open than with other races. This hampered with the fact they wear no clothing upon their homeworld, means individuals struggle to adjust to life off of Sequella, especially within Starfleet.
S'hib grew up as a child upon his homeworld of Sequella. Around age 7 he and his parents along with a several hundred others moved to earth as part of Sequella's migration initiative, Which was an incentive for members of his race with young children to broaden their horizons and actually move off-world.
Arriving on earth his parents already had jobs secured and although struggled to adjust to their now very small herd. They did so nowhere near to the degree S'hib would.
It wouldn't be for a good few years before S'hib would adjust and actually make any friends, and by age 15 still loathed the clothing he was forced to wear outside his home.
A week after his 16th birthday S'hib applied for Starfleet, Being accepted after earning a high score in his exam. Although he did struggle tremendously with the psych exam, which almost cost him his position within the academy.
During his 6 year program, S'hib almost washed out when he misunderstood a social interaction which on his homeworld would have been perfectly normal, but unintentionally caused offence to a superior officer. Thankfully the matter was dealt with once the true nature of the events came to light, though he was left rather embarrassed afterwards.
Graduating after his 22nd birthday S'hib became one of the first of his race to join Starfleet, Though as much as he was proud of the uniform he now wore, he still detested wearing it.
