|T’Rennek was born in Larrrtov on his native Ferasa (Cait) in 2350 and his childhood was typical of other Caitians. His mother was an FTL engineer at the Rannur Shipyards whilst his father was part of the planetary defence forces, and as a warrior, felt it was his duty to teach his children the ways of combat-for-protection. He began his advanced education by attending the University of Ferasa where he majored in Caitian art with a minor in political science. He furthered his academic studies at the Caitian Science Institute where he studied astrogation and archaeology.
He followed his urge to wander about the stars to learn more about the multitude of races out in the universe as well as fulfilling the Caitian imperative of serving living for honour, by sitting the Starfleet Academy entrance exams. His entrance exams were a success and he was assigned to the officer training program at the Pinastri Academy annexe in the Delta Quadrant.
During his time at the Academy, he became intrigued with strategy, seeing it more as art than science. He concentrated in strategic operations during the latter part of his training and graduated joint-top of his class in 2383.
After graduation, T’Rennek took up his first billet at the Academy where he stayed until mid-2385. His first post was working in the curriculum development department where he achieved great success including becoming department Director. During this time he also served a stint as Chief Historian for the Pinastri colony.
In mid-2385 after a period of extended LOA he returned to duty in the Chief of Starfleet Operations’ office as a procedural strategist, where he remains to this day.
Trennek’s body fur is naturally short and due to his polar ancestry is white in colour with black markings he sometimes keeps his tail clasped with a metal ring with inscribed with a Caitian religious blessing. When permissible, he wears a necklace consisting of a small stone circle with a hole through with an inscription in Heltic calligraphy and a leather string.
Caitians have greatly heightened senses of touch, smell, sight, and hearing, compared to humans. The pads on his hands and feet are extremely sensitive and can detect vibrations much smaller in amplitude and longer in frequency than humans. T’Rennek’s ears can be moved independently and will subconsciously be constantly scanning around unless he is paying attention to someone or something.
His sight allows him to see in much lower light levels than humans, but at the cost of reduced colour distinction at standard lighting levels. T’Rennek only wears shoes when on duty, as his foot pads provide adequate protection and allow him to move stealthily. If he drops to all fours, he is able sprint at speeds of up to 55 mph for brief periods of time.
T’Rennek uses body language as part of his communication technique. The degree of his tail motion and the setting of his eyes, ears, and whiskers are all important indicators.
Personality & Traits
T’Rennek is very friendly and intensely loyal to those he calls friends. He develops very close bonds with them and will defend them like they were family. He is a highly social creature, and spends most of his time around others whom he always treats with deep respect and honour. He will almost always refer to others with their full rank and name, as is Caitian tradition to show respect. In informal settings, he may not always use rank, but will still sometimes use a person’s full name.
Like most other Caitians, he has a great appreciation for beauty and art (some of the Federation’s other races would label Caitians almost hedonistic in their pursuit of them). He carries out his duties with zeal and efficiency to honour his commanding officer and his colleagues. He always avoids combat, using violence as a last option. However, when he must use it, he fights to win. T’Rennek is adaptable and curious. He retains a vast amount of seemingly inconsequential data in his head and can just about tell you where to find anything if asked. He's generally busy even if he doesn't seem to be, and he bounces through spells of talking all the time to being stoically silent. He knows Starfleet regulations by heart and isn't afraid to move through them in a way that is strictly "by the book"... only creatively.
Because the Caitian native language is more precise in description than Federation Standard and thus does not use figures of speech, this sometimes causes T’Rennek to misunderstand humans, taking figures of speech literally. As much as he has tried to learn what specific figures of speech mean, new ones are always appearing. He has concluded he may never understand them all, but does find this use of language an interesting art form.
Strengths & Weaknesses
T’Rennek’s strength is in his loyalty to his friends, his commanding officer, and to the ideals of the Federation. He cannot be bribed or coerced to betray them. Like most other Caitians, he will not seek to use force until absolutely necessary (Caitians are generally pacifistic). This may cause him to hesitate to use force when it is called for, potentially causing a vulnerability that an adversary could exploit.
Like most officers in Starfleet, he dreams to command a starship himself, someday. The Caitian wanderlust is strong in him and he finds the life of a starship officer, always travelling from place to place, very appealing.
Hobbies & Interests
T’Rennek is a devout follower of the teachings of Cait’s Great Messenger, who long ago united the planet’s tribes and taught them to live in peace with one another. He is also prideful of his Caitian heritage and follows Caitian traditions, and enjoys sharing them with others.
He is an avid music lover and plays the Caitian stringed instrument, the Mgrrrrr’than....albeit badly! He is also an advanced student of Rakun, a traditional fighting discipline using a rapier-like sword and a dagger (called the rakgr’n and raksir).
