Current Assignment

Transfer order SFR-02-0933-3440

Assigned to the position onboard the on Stardate

Physical Description:
Richly tan skin, black hair perpetually buzzed short, dark brown eyes capped by bushy brows. The pale scar on his face is the only thing that really otherwise stands out about him upon first glance. Tends to sit and stand straight in a way that makes him look more tense than formal. Does he even smile? Did he USED to smile? The galaxy may never know.

Scars: outer corner of right eye to just above jawline, partially across left side of neck/throat, three different energy weapon scars (back just below left shoulder, chest on right pectoral, just above right hip)

Family & Personal History:
Born in Paris to an Indian mother and French father, Vikram has grown up in and around the heart of Federation politics. His mother holds a job at the Place de la Concorde as a minor aide to the office of the President. His father tinkers and sells both his services in fixing up vehicles as well as whatever he can salvage and cobble back to sellable life.

Vikram did not inherit his father's mechanical skills nor his mother's diplomatic tendencies. But he knew Starfleet was where he wanted to end up. His twin sisters, Janette and Asha, wanted nothing to do with it: Asha went into journalism where she sometimes covers Federation events (including the USS Kensington incident her brother was part of), and Janette has been stuck trying to break out into the fashion industry for years while working in an upscale clothing store. Vikram followed his mother closely nevertheless, fascinated by the workings of the Federation and learning early on about how to maneuver around multitudes of alien life. Sitting around, though, wasn't in his nature. If he was ever going to help foster the kind of good will the President was expected to, he'd have to go out there.

He's very close to his family but in more recent years due to certain circumstances (both in and out of his control) has distanced himself from them.

Educational History:
Moved to California at 16, living with a family friend, to complete his high school education stateside while shadowing professors and receiving mentoring and tutoring as prep for the Academy (perhaps with a little pull and influence from his mother). Initially a jack of all trades, ended up an average student on the operations path. Had an interest in engineering from his father's influence but wasn't very good on the theoretical aspects and complicated mathematics. Fair hand physically though had little interest in becoming a tactical officer (from old fears of becoming a 'red shirt'). Science? Don't get him started on science. On the other hand, if a helmsman isn't available, he can pilot the hell out of shuttles.

Being overall average meant he still passed all the required tests, but man did it ever feel like he was letting himself down for all the help he got beforehand. It didn't help that he tended to use his time more socially than for studying.

Medical History:
Replacement right lung due to close-range [redacted] blast; stamina slightly increased.
Various healed wounds and scars via blades and energy weapons; mild complaints of pulling when scarred areas are stretched. Received notably minimal treatment for said wounds. Refused/refuses dermal regeneration for personal reasons.
In otherwise perfect physical health.
[Any and all mentions of how he may have received any of his wounds are redacted.]

Psychologically deemed fit for duty with notations on: unease around doctors and medical facilities, a related mild mysophobia, past trauma from the Kensington incident (post-traumatic stress, extreme mysophobia, survivor's guilt) all of which have been deemed treated or manageable through counseling and time away from active service.
