Personality & Traits

General Overview Ja'tah descends from Starfleet officers captured as slaves in the Federation-Klingon Cold War about a century ago. The Klingon presence in his ancestry is plain to see, though when is a mystery.
He does his best to suppress his Klingon temper, and for the most part is successful. As with many Klingon descendants in Federation territory, he is a man of few words save when in the company of trusted peers or friends.
Strengths & Weaknesses +Physically strong and agile
+Well-versed in various Human and Klingon fighting techniques
+Practiced marksman
+Knowledge of ordnance devices

-Socially reserved
-Hypercritical
-Overly-analytical
Ambitions In the long-term, Ja'tah hopes to enter the Command track, but for now he has a nearly obsessive compulsion to protect all under his charge.
Hobbies & Interests Ja'tah enjoys sparring, researching the latest tactical breakthroughs, and learning more about both his Human and Klingon heritage.

Personal History Ja'tah's earliest memory is serving as a jeghpu'wI' in the service of the Klingon tribunal on Narendra III. With a social class somewhere between a slave and a citizen, Ja'tah had more benefits and privileges than most non-Klingons, but his orphaned education and upbringing were nonetheless traumatic and dreadful. He managed to make himself useful to the office of the tribunal, which allowed him to stay fed and off the streets.

Before Ja'tah came of age, he met a data clerk from the Federation ambassador's office named Marilyn Hendrick. By age 14, she and her husband Jonathan formally adopted Ja'tah, and when they were recalled back to Earth two years later, he went with them as an official citizen of the Federation.

It was determined from various research over the years that he descends from the lost crew of the USS Hyperion over a century ago, though whom exactly has been nearly impossible to determine.
