Lieutenant Commander Kalraan Ran
Born to Kalsa Ran (Retired Marine) and Zelian Ran (Scientist of the Trill Science Institute) on june 2366. His father was strickt and fair and his mother was loving and carring. This laid the foundation to who he would become. His father was very hard on him from time to time, often taking him on long walks in the mountains. Teaching him survival skills and several forms of Martial arts. His father even tried to teach him how to propperly shoot a rifle, but the idea never sat well with Kalraan. How ever, the workings of the weapons had always facinated him and for that his father still felt a sense of pride. ‘He might not be able to shoot right, but be damned if he won’t make one fine weapon someday’ the old marine had said with a very faint smile on his face.
While the father nurchured the body, his mother focused more on the mind. Often taking him to her lab and giving him access to books and materials that were far to advanced for his age. But that didn’t stop him from loving every moment of it. He could be as creative as he wanted, his mother was always supportive of his projects and helped where she could. His ideas never got past the paper however because a prototype needed funding that she didn’t have. But that didn’t matter to Kalraan though, he had a holo program where he could create holographic versions of the weapons.
At the age of eighteen he was submitted to the Starfleet Academy. Both his parrents were very proud of him and when he learned that his son would take supliment courses in Marine close quarter combat, Kalraan could have sworn he saw his father getting a tear in his eye for the first time in his life.
After four years of hard work he graduated and was shipped off to his first assignment. His parrents wheren’t happy he would be so far away this early on, but when they learned that he was actually going to serve on a Sovereign Class Battlecruiser. His father openly cried with pride.
