Personality & Traits

General Overview Saalkan is humorless. It's not that he doesn't understand humor. He just doesn't appreciate it. Life is very serious for him, perceived to be an ever expanding series of complex sums and equations to be solved and balanced.

He is also prone to delusions of grandeur and sociopathic tendencies.
Strengths & Weaknesses Saalkan is cordial toward his associates, and will even socialize with them as he has recognized the need for familiar bonds within a group of close-working individuals. However, his relationships are generally shallow or short-lived.
His scientific expertise is well-rounded in all major fields, and his proficiency with starship equipment, including consoles, phasers, and shuttlecraft, is above average.
A consummate overachiever, Saalkan often works past his scheduled shift and has been accused of trying too hard.

Saalkan has demonstrated immense telepathic abilities, and when augmented with ancient Vulcan relics, limited psychokinetic abilities to include energy projection and biological regeneration.
Ambitions Saalkan desires to eventually command his own scientific research facility.

After being presumed killed in action and posthumously discharged from Starfleet, Saalkan wishes to resume his pursuit of immortality and transcendence.
Hobbies & Interests Saalkan has pursued astronomy since childhood, but purely in mythical interest derived from ancient Vulcan lore.

Personal History Saalkan's father was a Starfleet captain who perished in battle, an event which forever shadowed his life. His mother served as a scholar at the Vulcan Science Academy, which is where he spent his early adult life after his father perished in 2348 during the Federation-Cardassian War.
His passion for study eventually drove him to follow his father's footsteps by joining Starfleet, having learned all he could after decades spent in the VSA. His goal is to eventually be in command of his own research facility with the full resources of Starfleet at his disposal.

With the resolution of the Consortium conflict, Starfleet Intelligence was able to determine that Saalkan was not who he was believed to be.

Unknown to everyone except for select members of Section 31 and the V'tosh katur sect of Vulcans, Saalkan is the current identity of Za'ul of Vulcan, a former Security officer killed during the Cardassian War. His katra was preserved by his wife, Thesan, who transferred it into a clone body. Za'ul took on the identity of a fictional son and entered the Vulcan Science Academy to wrestle a path to immortality through scientific inquiry.
