T'Bel was born in 2363 on Vulcan. T'Bel was the only child of T'Les, an instructor at the Vulcan Science Academy, and her husband Sorel a highly decorated Federation Ambassador. Growing up T’Bel spend most of her childhood on Earth due to her father’s posting there. This meant that she had way more freedom than a normal Vulcan child on Vulcan. It allowed her to experience and experiment with emotions on a daily basis. Not having a base of comparison, emotions did not appear all that foreign to her. She did spend a few months on P’Jem taking part in a purification ritual, she wasn’t given much choice as her emotional state was judged too extreme after she joined she Science Academy.
As a child, T'Bel's path in life was inspired T'Pol the first Vulcan to be part of Starfleet and this against the authority of the Vulcan High Council.
Approximately 10 years before joining Starfleet Academy, T'Bel served as a researcher for the Vulcan Science Academy where she worked under her mother. She later resigned, as her true asperation was to join Starfleet and head back to earth where she had felt at home.
Per Vulcan tradition, T'Bel was bonded with a Vulcan named Koras while they were children and expected to marry as adults. Although she decided to not go through this arranged once she graduated from the academy. She had been romantically involved over there and she could not resign herself to the idea of bonding with someone she had nothing in common and knew nothing about. Furthermore her career in Starfleet was her priority and had no intention to submit to the authority of her imposed Vulcan mate.
T'Bel, who is described by her superiors as a maverick and a rebel, has always been fascinated by humanity, their ability to adapt no matter the circumstances, to never quit no matter how much the odds are against them.
This has led her to let go a bit of her rigid nature, and she has tried to emulate human traits. Which sometimes lead to uncontrolled bursts of emotions.
