Looks like your typical Andorian, except with slightly longer hair that is not as neatly trimmed. He usually wears a midnight blue tight body armor suit, showing off his muscular, slender tone. He's definitely fit. He is older - especially for his rank, but he doesn't show it physically. A bit sly and laid back, but also joking and snarky. Valoru tends to hang back until he feels like the fun starts, then he is fully engaged.
From a young age, Valoru was always trained in combat. It was not necessarily the common thing for his town or his family, but it was what he wanted and his parents provided. He served in local and global protection services (police, etc) before leaving Andor for more study of martial arts. He studied with the Klingons, the Vulcans, and Humans for a variety of martial arts skills
He had floated in the galaxy getting trained and doing odd bodyguard jobs where possible. He eventually turned to mercenary work, but tried to stay clear of less-than-favorable dealings (he mainly worked for Federation entities and businesses).
Valoru eventually settled down on a small outpost and began working more closely with Starfleet. He received basic training – more like sailed through it – and then was given an honorarium from his homeworld for all he had done in protection of the innocent and Andorians and the Federation. These formative years on the Starfleet Outpost made him a better person by far.
The Andorian oddly enough studied Operations in Starfleet, even though he was a keen martial weapon. This was driven by his work with the command officers on the Outpost and the strategy and logistics work he did therein. He was eventually sent to the USS Equinox for Operations work as an official Starfleet Officer.
