StarBase 118 Offline RPG Card Game
Noble son of the 10th House of Betazed, Guardian of the Eyes of Kylaron, Mystic of Khrysaros, and Tassa Master Brayden Jorey was born into Betazoid nobility and privilege. He has been raised by family, attendants, monks and tutors. Both his parents, his brother, and his grandmother have made their life in Starfleet. Jorey's childhood was lived at his family complex on Betazed or aboard a Federation starship. His parents were both killed in action during a mission at Malona IV when he was a teenager. His grandfather was killed during the Battle of Betazed during the dominion war. However, Jorey came to terms with their deaths and followed in their footsteps serving as an acting ensign aboard their ship.
In 2385, Jorey was accepted into Starfleet Academy. He majored in Tactical, minoring in Helm and Intelligence. Jorey was an above average student and an exception pilot and athlete. Jorey received many awards throughout his Academy career in athletics, martial abilities, and piloting. In his final year at the academy, he travelled to Forcas III to compete in the Klingon Bat'leth competition. Jorey is one of very few non-Klingon warriors to be awarded Champion Standing.
Throughout his life Jorey has dedicated himself to Betazoid culture. He is a deeply religious person, a Tassa Mystic, and holds Betazoid culture and his heritage in the highest regard. He follows the teachings of Khrysaros. Jorey is relentless in honouring and expressing his Betazoid roots, which can often make him seem flamboyant, eccentric, and even self-obsessed. However, he is extremely charismatic, diplomatic, and deep down altruistic which makes him a fine Starfleet Officer.

Jorey's personality can best be described as a complex web of incompatibilities. He is a deeply spiritual, compassionate, and generous person. He is equally vain, strong-willed, and impulsive. He demonstrates the classic Betazoid trait of being very open and honest, occasionally to a fault. Jorey has spent much of his life aboard Federation vessels and while on duty he does very well at adapting to Human social conventions, however, off-duty he prefers to honour and express his Betazoid culture which can be seen as flamboyant, eccentric, and even self-obsessed. Jorey is extremely charismatic, diplomatic, and personable, however he is equally manipulative and aggressive. Jorey's negative personality traits are tempered, however, by a sincere and higher than average level of altruism.
Ambitions and Goals
Jorey is the son of career Starfleet officers and the grandson of a general and diplomat. His upbringing has always been focused on preparing him for a Starfleet career. Jorey is driven, assertive, confident and strong-willed. It is likely that Jorey will likely have a long and successful career in Starfleet. His ambitions will seem him rise through the ranks towards his ultimate goal of being the Captain of his own ship.
Personal Achievements and Disappointments
The majority of Jorey's personal achievements are related to athletic and martial activities. At age 20 Jorey completed Tassa'Akai training and was granted Mystic status. Later that year, Jorey competed in the Bat'leth competition on Forcas III and became one of the few non-Klingon warriors to achieve Champion Standing. At the end of his third year at Starfleet Academy he was awarded 'Athlete of the Year' after being the top scoring striker in the soccer league and leading his Velocity team to the championship.
Jorey has had few disappointments in life, however, he has experienced a great deal of loss. The death of his grandfather during the Battle of Betazed and the death of his parents during a mission at Malona IV have had a deep and lasting impression on Jorey.
The House of Jorey is one of Betazed's noble family lines and a member family of the 10th House of Betazed – the House of Perseverance.
Grandmother - Ambassador Calodia Jorey (Betazed)
- Jorey's grandmother is remarkably strong, intimidating, and fearless woman. She is a warrior, tactician, and expert negotiator. She has been an Ambassador for Betazed for decades and has even been called upon by the Federation to represent their interests in difficult negotiations. She was also a key figure in the Battle of Betazed, eventually defeating the dominion.
Grandfather - Brysen Jorey (Deceased)
- Jorey's grandfather died during the dominion occupation of Betazed. He was a dedicated, strong-willed, and spiritual man. He was a great spiritual mentor and guide for Jorey and even in death continues to be so.
Mother - Lt. Commander Veloxen Jorey (Deceased)
- Jorey's mother was a vivacious and exceptionally curious woman. It is that endless curiosity that eventually lead her toward a career in Starfleet. She was very focused on raising Jorey to be better equipped and prepared to live among non-betazoids than she was. However, she did so from the belief that Betazoids are superior to other humanoids.
Father - Lt. Commander Delon Jorey (Deceased)
- Jorey's father was a warm, nurturing, and incredibly kind man. He married Jorey's mother when they were young and joined Starfleet so he could be close to her and keep their family together. Jorey's father was focused on making sure that Jorey knew about his Betazoid culture, heriatage, and made sure to provide him with the best education to develop his telepathic and empathic abilities.
Brother - Lt. Dylan Jorey (USS Degault)
- Jorey's Brother is two years older than him. They were very close as children and shared a deep connection with each other. However, as Jorey's telepathic abilities surpassed his brother's in adolescence and he began getting far more attention, jealously caused them to grow apart. After the death of their parents, the two brother's quickly moved beyond petty rivalries and grew close quickly and forming an even deeper connection to each other than when they were kids. Dylan is flamboyant, expressive, artistic, and sensitive. He is currently serving aboard the USS Degault as a Chief Medical Officer.
Early Childhood (2368-2372):
Jorey was born at his family home on the south coast of the Opal Sea and raised by his grandparents while his parents continued their tours aboard the USS Arianrod until he was 4 years old. Despite being so young, this time with his grandparents had a profound and lasting effect on Jorey. He began his dedication to traditional betazoid customs and the old ways of spirituality as taught by his grandfather and loved to watch his grandmother train in a variety of martial arts in the gardens of the Jorey family complex. When Jorey was four, his parents accepted new posts on a larger ship that afforded them the opportunity to bring Jorey and his brother, Dylan, along with them. Jorey's parents taking the new post and bringing their children with them was done so on the demand of Jorey's grandfather and the political posturing of his grandmother. Later, Jorey would come to understand that they were making sure their grandchildren were safe from the Dominion invasion of Betazed.
Later Childhood (2372-2377):
Life aboard the USS Helios, an Akira-class battleship, was exciting, dangerous, and inspiring for Jorey. The Helios was forced to face Dominion forces more than once, including interstellar battles that had a direct impact on Betazed. Jorey attended school aboard the ship and received a federation education tailored to prepare him for the academy. Although Jorey's telepathic abilities were years away from surfacing, his empathic abilities seem to have surfaced early due to the extreme emotions the crewman experienced leading up to and during the war. This lead to Jorey being both desensitized to the emotions of war and being intrigued by them. Jorey's father quickly realized the emergence of his empathic abilities and began teaching him to control and use these abilities.
Jorey became very close and best friends with a Klingon boy named, Koroth. The two met in school and shared many interests related to athletics, sports, and combat. By the time they were 6 years old, they provided friendly competition for each other and pushed each other to perform better. Their favourite activity was sparring. Koroth matured much quicker than Jorey, as Klingons tend to do), and was always bigger and stronger than Jorey. However, Jorey was able to compensate for this during their sparing matches by using his empathic abilities to anticipate and preemptively act against his attacks. Meanwhile, the Dominion war made its way to Betazed where Jorey felt his grandfather die when his family's complex was damaged and home destroyed in the initial invasion. Jorey's grandmother quickly took on the role of a general and was instrumental in the movement toward preparing the people for telepathic assault. Eventually, at the great loss of life, they were able to drive Dominion forces back and safe Betazed. The USS Helios was assigned to assist Betazed during the last battles. Jorey spent the majority of this time confined to quarters, in sickbay, or with his parents due to intense psychological distress caused by empathically experiencing the huge loss of Betazoid life. This was a difficult experience for all empaths, however Jorey was too young to be able to deal with the trauma effectively on his own.
Early Adolescence (2377-2382):
Days after the last Dominion invaders were expunged from Betazed, Jorey and his brother left the USS Helios with their father to rebuild and live at the family home. For the next three years the Jorey family morned the loss of those lost in the Battle of Betazed, rebuilt their the family complex, and Jorey and his brother continued their education. The loss of Jorey's grandfather affected him greatly, but found relief in the presence of his grandmother and the religious practices he learned from his grandfather. During this time Jorey's grandmother continued to train Jorey in martial arts focusing on Tassa’Akai.
In the months leading up to Jorey's 12th birthday, he was haunted by terrible dreams of broken images and intense emotions regarding the Battle of Betazed and the death of his grandfather. Although, Jorey was young, his father could sense his telepathic awakening and focused on preparing Jorey through religious practice and meditation. Eventually, Jorey and his family celebrated his awakening when his telepathic abilities surfaced. However, they were all shocked and surprised to realize that the spirit of his grandfather was able to communicate through Jorey. It quickly became clear that Jorey had a high telepathic worth and his father, with the influence of his grandmother, secured the best education and tutors possible – including spiritual leaders, Tassa'Akai masters, and Starfleet educators.
Late Adolescence (2382-2385):
After 5 years of being away from his mother, Jorey's father and mother each accepted posts aboard the USS Degault so the family could be reunited. Added to the joy of being reunited with his mother, Jorey was thrilled to discover that his childhood friend Koroth was also aboard the Degault as a junior security officer. The two quickly picked up where they left off and felt as though no time had passed between them. However, their abilities in sparring with each other had greatly improved. The two shared with each other what they had learned and spent much of their free time together.
In 2383, the USS Degault was exploring a rarely surveyed system near the neutral zone and was studying the long term effects of the Crystalline Entity's impact on Malona IV. Atmospheric interference made teleporting to the surface impossible so an away team was sent to the surface aboard a shuttle, including Jorey's parents. However, before the shuttle made it to the planet a Romulan ship, commanded by Remans, decloaked and entered into battle with the Degault. The shuttlecraft carrying Jorey's parents was destroyed and the Degault took heavy damage, but was able to fend of the attack. The senior staff decided to honour Jorey's parents by sharing the responsibility of caring for him, upon the persuasive recommendation of his grandmother.
Over the next few years Jorey would come to terms with the death of his parents with the support of his brother and the Degault senior staff. During this time Jorey also relied on his friendship with Koroth, which over time developed into an innocent, but romantic relationship. The two became close enough that they were able to communicate with each other telepathically on a rudimentary level. Jorey's brother became aware of the relationship and informed their grandmother. This caused a great deal of controversy among the Jorey Family because it made clear that Jorey was going to be 'unable' to fulfil the family's marriage commitments to the girl Jorey was bonded too in childhood.
On his 16th birthday the ship's Captain granted Jorey the rank of 'acting ensign' to honour the wishes of his parents who died serving Starfleet. He served at the helm on the bridge and as a junior security officer on away missions. In serving the Degault, Jorey was afforded many different experiences and learned how to serve as a member of a team. After the year, Jorey was accepted into Starfleet Academy. Jorey and Koroth new that they were likely to not see each other for a very long time and decided to let their romantic feelings fade, but maintain the friendship that they had both come to cherish.
Starfleet Academy (2385-2389):
Jorey was accepted into Starfleet Academy and studied at the academy's main campus on Earth. He majored in Tactical, minored in Helm/Nav, and based on the premonitions of his grandfather focused his elective courses on intelligence. Jorey, having served aboard the Degault, had a difficult time adjusting to life at the Academy. It was far more quiet and less was expected of him. Fortunately, his studies kept him very busy. Jorey did well in the academy and was always ranked within the top 5 of his class, including first ranking in many tactics courses, however he often struggled with engineering course requirements but was able to attain adequate standing.
Jorey also found himself involved in a variety of extra-curricular activities and events. Jorey was a natural athlete and found his telepathic worth gave him an added advantage in opponent based competitions. He was the captain of his Velocity team and led them to championship in his last two years at the academy. Jorey was also a top scoring striker in the Academy soccer league. In his last year at the academy, Jorey was invited and accompanied Koroth to the Planet Forcas III to compete in the Klingon Bat'leth competition. Jorey, combining his skill with the Bat'leth (he learned from Koroth) with his training with the Tassa'Akai masters, was victorious in his final battle against Koroth. Jorey is one of few non-Klingons to have been awarded Champion Standing.
Jorey was eventually returned to the USS Degault to complete his Cadet Cruise and reunited with Koroth. They continued their combat training together and eventually it lead to a more mature romantic relationship than they had previously had.

|Koroth · Imzadi|
|USS Degault. Over the next few years their relationship developed into something more profound and eventually became romantic. However, things were put on hold when Jorey left the Degualt for Starfleet Academy.
In Jorey's last year at the academy he and Koroth travelled to Forcas III for the Bat'leth competition. The days on Forcas III saw the passions between Koroth and Jorey resurface and the tensions between their families ease as they realized the profound connection and deep love they shared. It was during this time that Jorey realized that Koroth was his Imzadi, his first true love, and would be till death. However, the two were forced to put things on hold again as they are on different paths, Koroth on the Degault and Jorey on the Tiger.

Although their romance was short lived, the deep connection they both felt for each other left a lasting impression|
