Theron Morris was born on Moldoba in 2248, part of a wave of colonial expansion in the early days of the Federation. Moldoba however, had the dubious honor of being the site of a large portion of the early Federations warp drive testing, which led to the first and last Federation test of Omega particles. The cataclysmic explosion near the planet destroyed subspace for several dozen light years in every direction, and led to the closed Starfleet order regarding Omega.
The people living on Moldoba were left in a small slice of purgatory. The radiation from the event effectively sterilized the planet, and all but obliterated the biosphere. The saving grace for the colonists was there was a fully fitted medical ship in orbit. Realizing that they would shortly die out, through a combination of radiation poisoning and the massive damage inflicted on the planet, the colonists resorted to full body cloning, hoping to stave off the effects of the radioactive event.
Cloning was still only a moderately understood process, and the clones were periodically defective and mutated at the genetic level. There were upsides. The colony was a smokescreen for the Section 31 site for the Omega research being performed, and with Dr. Ketteract and the majority of the Section 31 being annihilated in the Omega explosion, a lot of the tech was pressed into service, including a viable process for copying memories from one clone to another, removing the lone barrier to the colonies survival. However, this caused a great deal of stress and caused mental degradation and psychosis. The clones were only viable for several years, given the patchwork nature of the cloning process and the limited resources. Multiple clones of every colonists had to be made, given the bitterly hard conditions on the planet and the need for personnel. Suicides and depression were frequent, but homicides effectively dropped to zero.
In 2355, just a few years before Theron Lambda, the eleventh "run" was produced, a borderline miracle occured. Subspace is effected by a multitude of phenomena, and the subspace bubble that prevented any warp travel suddenly and inexplicably shrank by almost 60%. The colonists of Moldoba had no knowledge of this until the USS Einstein, a science ship, warped into the area. Amazingly, this was met by the colonists with little surprise, and the cloned "descendants" of the original colony was rapidly reintegrated into the Federation, and rapidly removed from the planet. Thanks to advances in technology, the latest, and possibly last, generation of Moldoban clones was massively more stable than before, with a life expectancy of 30-40 years rather than 7-10.
Given his application had been tentatively accepted by the Academy over a hundred years earlier, Theron passed the Academy entrance exam with a staggeringly high score, and his room 101 test was passed on the first try, as Academy placement psychologists determined he had no real fears per se, apart from a fear of fear, given he had no fear of death, having experienced multiple grevious and fatal injuries.
Despite such a bitter upbringing, Theron is rather jovial, making frequent jokes and comments about any situation he finds himself in. He is utterly fearless and prone to rash action in hazardous situations, but he is extremely prudent and cautious when a mission is underway, at which point he tends to become very somber and blunt if a situation is becoming hazardous
Due to the engrammatic process, Theron has had no formal education per se. What he does possess is the accumulated experience of the 11 Theron lines that contributed to the memory engrams, up until their deaths at least. At 15 members per line, this amounts to the combined experiences of 160 years. While this is somewhat disorienting when he tries to draw a personal "memory," he has great technical ability and familiarity with a wide variety of systems and repair techniques, as well as the entirety of the Starfleet Officers Handbook, circa 2158 (approximately 180 years out of date).
Therons current line, the Eta's and the Lambdas, are his currrent family. The last line to be processed just prior to the planets rediscovery by Starfleet, Theron nevertheless lost several members to accidents, flaws in the cloning process, and a few suicides. Currently there are 7 other Theron's alive, 6 Lambda and one Eta, all of whom survived long enough to receive the stabilization of their bodies by Starfleet Medical.
