Personal History: Dutir was born in 2356 to Unificationist parents Luuhs and Lir’et in the Romulan capital of Ki Baratan. He and his younger brother Kabur would grow up learning the Vulcan language and the teachings of Ambassador Spock in secret. Due to his family having to hide their status as Unificationists, Dutir grew up being even more secretive than most Romulans due to fact that discovery meant death. This would lead him to form an unlikely friendship with the female Ferengi merchant Yorepp. Dutir and Yorepp became inseparable in the ensuing years and it would be from her that he would learn the Ferengi and about their Rules of Acquisition. Years later Dutir’s relationship with Yorepp would pay off when she would secure him acceptance into the prestigious Romulan Naval Academy.
He would excel at the Academy, but this would unfortunately bring him to the attention of the Tal’Shiar. The intelligence would attempt to recruit him into their nefarious ranks. He would refuse out of fear of his true identity being discovered and would this spend his remaining time at the Academy striving to go unnoticed. Unfortunately this would lead to his grades slipping and he would barely graduate. His academic status would result in his first assignment to be as an Inventory Control Officer for the unimportant supply station on the North-East border of the Star Empire. Dutir would serve in this position for two in eventful years before he would witness a meeting between a visiting Admiral meeting with his mistress in one of the cargo bays. Dutir would use this information to blackmail the Admiral into transferring him to a more interesting post. He would become a member of the communications department on board the D’deridex Class Warbird, Supehk under the rank of Sub-Lieutenant.
His first duty onboard the Supehk was to serve as a Communications Control Aide. He would serve in this capacity for a year before a failure in the Universal Translator during a tense standoff with a Klingon fleet would give him a chance to prove himself. Since he was the only one fluent in the Klingon language, he was able to convince the Klingon Captain that not only were the crew of the Supehk not a threat but that destroying them would damage his honor. This action would earn him the rank of Centurion and the position of Specialist Communications Controller. His performance would impress the Star Empire so much that Ambassador Subel would choose the Supehk as vessel for his talks with the Klingon Empire. Dutir would work closely with Subel and play a pivotal role in the establishing of a new embassy on Khitomer. In recognition of his valuable contributions, the Ambassador would appoint him his new Chief of Staff at the embassy.
For the next five years, Dutir oversaw the Ambassador’s schedule as well as works alongside him as he sought to further Romulan-Klingon relations. Working under such an esteemed diplomat would convince him that the Star Empire’s future lay in expanding diplomacy. To further diplomatic relations, Dutir would propose establishing an embassy deep in the Alpha Quadrant. Dutir personally approached the Senate with his proposal in a plea that lasted six hours. He would convince a bare majority on the value of the embassy, and he would choose to establish his embassy on Roosevelt Station.
