Commodore Michael Aravan

Michael keeps himself in shape physically by spending many hard hours in the gym and holodeck, constantly training to keep himself at peak efficiency and ready for any hand-to-hand combat situation. In his off time, he tends to wear loose fitting clothing and has a ready smile on his face for fellow Star Fleet personnel.

History

Born 07/14/2356 to Xavier and Denise Aravan, the older brother to Gage Aravan, Michael spent long hours trying to be protective, himself an example of what to do when a situation called for and leading from the front. It wasn’t always easy as Gage liked to fight, but it taught Michael to stand up for people. It was far more important than other self-serving jobs which most people chose to get into. He learned honor and duty from his father, and kindness and perseverance from his mother.

He was trained in martial arts, hand-to-hand combat, armed combat, and how to figure out a situation before entering too deeply. The latter was done by countless hours of being put into situations by his parents who left a series of clues for him to follow. When he succeeded, he was rewarded, but to him the greatest reward was figuring it out on his own. When he failed, he was shown where he went wrong and encouraged not to forget what happened.

At age 18, he applied to and was accepted at Starfleet Academy in San Francisco, California, Earth where he dedicated himself to the art of being a Security Officer. Rather than choosing to specialize in any given area, he majored in both Security and Tactical, with Investigation as a minor.

It was during his senior year at the Academy that he met Spencer Scott. The young woman had been in her second year and Michael couldn’t get enough of her. When he wasn’t studying, he spent every available and knew that he had to have her as more than just a friend. While he hadn’t openly admitted it to anyone, Michael knew that he was in love with her. Upon his graduation, he told her that he would keep in contact with her and even though he did after he was shipped out on the USS Victory, he left his heart with her. No other woman had a chance, and many threw themselves at him only to meet a brick wall.

On June 16, 2387, he married Spencer Scott and the two of them have had two children; Ava Paige Scott-Aravan; 2 1/2 years old and Michael Jacob Aravan, Jr.; 10 months old
