The Earth Years 2365-2385
Aridal Mirak was born on Earth in the year 2365. He grew up in the Bolian community that can be found in the city of London.
In 2373 when Aridal was only 8 years old, his father was killed by a Dominion attack on a Federation vessel near the Romulan Neutral Zone. He later learned that although officially being neutral, the Romulans had turned a blind eye to Dominion forces crossing their territory. Because of that the Dominion ships had been able to ambush the vessel and his father was killed. Since that time Aridal has harboured a grudge against the Romulans as he made them responsible for the death of his father.
Being raised on Earth also meant that he came into contact with many different species and cultures and he enjoyed that and took interest in that.
He completed his education on Earth and then decided to follow his co-father’s wish to go back to Bolarus IX in order to study at the Bolian Academy of Applied Sciences.
The Bolian Years 2385-2396
At the Bolian Academy of Applied Sciences, he studied astronomy as he had always been interested in the question how the universe around him worked and all its phenomena. After six years of theoretical study, it was a logical step for him to join Starfleet Academy. His co-father wanted him to join the Bolian Scientific Society, however, he chose to leave Bolarus IX and was supported by his mother. He also wanted to join Starfleet as he wanted to follow in the footsteps of his father, who had dies in his service to the Federation.
Moreover, he increasingly longed for his time back on Earth, which he regarded in retrospect as his happiest time.
In the year 2396 he joined Starfleet Academy. As a typical Bolian, he was used to dedication and hard work, but he also took part in several social activities. His grades were good and he decided to major in the field of science. In the year 2400 he graduated and was assigned to the USS Gorkon.
Even from a young age, Aridal could be described as an extroverted and out-going young Bolian. He really liked to be the center of attention perhaps due to the fact that he wanted to draw attention to himself because of his two older brothers. Aridal tends to talk too much, especially when he is nervous.
Aridal is also a social and generally happy person. He tends to talk too much, especially when he is nervous. Even though he may not feel like it himself, he always tries to highlight the positive, to cheer others up or to be there for them. Sometimes he also hides his real feelings behind an always happy, optimistic and jovial face. Aridal really values harmony and does not like conflicts. When working on problems, he tends to think out loud and likes to work out ideas in a team with others. Towards others, he could be described as a helpful, warm and empathetic person. He bases his decisions on personal values. Moreover, Aridal is a quite spontaneous person and enjoys surprises and new situations, which could also lead him into trouble or even into dangerous situations at times. When he considers someone a real friend, he is a good sport and loyal.
Due to the tragic loss of his father when he was young, he has a personal aversion and prejudice towards Romulans.
