Commodore Bel Moroi
Name Bel Moroi
Position VIP Guest
|Physical Description||An attractive man with short hair and a well-kept beard, which he nonetheless grows and shaves at whim. He has a charismatic air, though not necessarily friendly at first. A stern gaze, but a pleasant voice, which betrays his heritage: his slight Betazoid (similar to Eastern European) accent is not picked up by the universal translater and as such is present.|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Bel combines the traditional cultural Betazoid way of emphatic openness with a strong scientific logical side, emphasized by his time spent on Vulcan. He's a gentleman who has, over the years, learned to trust in his own abilities. They are extensive, as a scientist and as a command officer. His experience makes him observant - he feels no need to be in centre of the attention, but will seemlessly occupy the position when needed.
Despite his empathy, Bel is not at all above sarcasm: he is not afraid to joke around with his subordinates and appreciates counterremarks just as well.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||+ Flexible thinker
+ Enjoys fraternizing with the crew
+ Strong fighter
- Adventurous spirit and unending curiosity can get him and his crew into trouble
- Stubborn sense of honor
- Often convinced of his own right
|Ambitions||Moroi is not afraid to admit he seeks to make a career in Starfleet. He stands for its ideals, seeks to further them. Bel is glad to finally command his own science and exploration vessel.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Bel takes pleasure in beating Vulcans at their own games. He'll try to get them out of their concentration by employing tactically placed sarcastic remarks.|
|Personal History||No single event from Bel Moroi's early would have made anyone anticipate his later succesful scientific and command career. Bel was a troubled teenager who struggled with Betazoid society, which brutal honesty and openness made him long for privacy. He got into trouble often and sought to seclude himself.
Shah Moroi, a keen diplomat with a sharp eye, fortunately noticed his son's distress. His solution was equally sharp: he invited his friend and fellow diplomat ambassador Garvon to tutor the boy. Bel, knowing full well he would soon have to make something of his life, reluctantly accepted, actually glad to be offered a change of pace. The decision by Shah was frowned upon by many of the peaceful Betazoids, but as an experienced ambassador himself Shah knew the worth of studying other cultures. Bel would be running back to the Betazoid ways, once he got a taste of the Klingons'.
Indeed Bel at many times contemplated stealing a shuttle and return to his home while he travelled around the galaxy with Garvon. The old Klingon made him work hard and not just with his body. Garvon was no fool and he had been a scientist before his ambassador day. He taught the boy to think as much as to fight.
A year later Bel returned to Betazed, a changed man. But not the way his father had expected. Bel was determined to make something of his life and to everyone's suprise he announced he had applied to the Vulcan Science Academy: the exact opposite of everything Betazoid. Though he'd always been smart, school wasn't exactly what made young Bel's world and as such no one expected him to be admitted: but he studied hard. It appeared the troubled teenager needed the right impulses to reach his full potential. With four years of studies and an entire mountain of maturity under his belt, Bel applied for Starfleet Academy, which hearthily accepted the already accomplished young scientist.
Completely in his element, Bel majored in Science and minored in Tactical, taking various combat courses. While on earth he eventually settled for a kung fu variant, which he studied passionately.
Despite his scientific background, Bel ended up not as Science Officer, but as an aide to the Vulcan Admiral Sovek.
