Place of Origin: Vulcan (2355)
Played by: Lamar_David
T’Sai wears her hair longer than most Vulcans as a way to help blend in during certain missions. As with her species, she is slightly on the tall side. She is slender and keeps herself well within Starfleet fitness mandates because of her line of work. She always keeps herself neat and tidy with her uniform meeting Starfleet code.
Intelligent and adaptable. T’Sai is the center of calm in the eye of a hurricane. She attempts to show no outward emotions, but those who know her most can pick up elements of sarcasm and even humor on occasion. It can be noted that her recommendations never describe her as cold and robotic.
T'sai was born during a time of great change for the Federation. The Cardassian Border Wars had driven Starfleet to it's first major arms race and upgrading of the fleet in half-a century. Her father's job as an R&D became suddenly in demand overnight. With that said, the young T'Sai didn't see much of her father as a young child. Such as the norm on Vulcan, many parents would stay at home while the other would be stationed a galaxy away.
Her older brother, Sarvek, sort of took the place of their father in the family. T'Sai looked up and admired her brother as he completed his Kolinahr and was readily accepted into the Vulcan Science Academy when T'Sai was only eight. She remembers her mother's eyes, almost giving a glint of pride as her son followed her down the prestigious path of Science. However, T'Sai had too much of her father in her.
She was among the top of her class as she made her way through school. Her mother's pull had set her along the path to go through her own Kolinahr with an easy stroll into the Science Academy. Instead, T'Sai could never shake her wonder about how things worked, she'd always tinker with holosimulators to make them more efficient or improve their feature sets. She'd also tinker with household technology to help with chores. T'Sai could also be found looking to the stars.
When her father was reassigned to Vulcan as the Cardassian Wars wound down, the two were able to carry on a normal relationship. Sulak allowed her to visit the shipyard, make inspections of incomplete vessels, and just have a look at the systems. Were it not for her Vulcan upbringing, she would have bounced off the walls.
Both her mother and brother attempted to steer her away from wasting her life on such trivial matters as she neared Kolinahr. T'Sai followed through with the process, completing her Kolinahr after four years at the age of twenty two. With her brash emotions purged, T'Sun almost congratulated herself on having two children join the Vulcan Science Academy. Instead, T'Sai chose to go into Starfleet.
