Shrewd and politically savvy, both passionate as well as a statesman, Issac plays things extremely close to the chest and compartmentalizes without sacrificing the large picture.
Isaac was the product of a dalliance with a visiting Orion Captain, Faleene, who came across his father, Ambassador Lewis Arlington, at a ceremonial dinner inviting a neighboring member race into the Federation. Pheromones ignited, Isaac was told it was an incredible night that meant everything to Lewis, but not to Faleene (she was only interested in the policial connections associated to Lewis' position).
It was not surprising that Faleene returned at Isaac's due date and delivered the baby in Washington D.C., Earth, where Lewis was stationed at the time. It was a bold play, as it would give Isaac birth status within the Federation and as it was a male child, Faleene doubted she would be able to sell Isaac as a slave since he had Human DNA. She gave birth and promptly dropped Isaac in Lewis' hands before climbing back aboard her ship and sailed off out of both of their lives.
For Lewis, it was heartbreaking but the gift was Isaac, who proved to be an extremely social child armed with good looks, good graces, and a gift for tongue as well as memory to go with native intelligence. He was a star pupil in school, always the social planner (in part because in order to win over his fellow students who were put off by his light green skin, he had to be the organizer, the planner, the kid who could pull off the dances, the Winter Ball, Faculty Dinners.
All the signs pointed to Isaac would follow in Lewis' footsteps. He graduated primary school and applied to StarFleet Diplomatic Corps. The uniqueness of his bloodline made him a welcomed candidate, because the Diplomatic Corps saw Isaac might one day be the bridge to eventually inviting the Orions into the United Federation of Planets.
It was a stellar four years for Isaac, who logged in plenty of practical time visiting several member worlds and getting a feel for the political landscape. He loved being a part of the Diplomatic Corps, but he had an eye on a greater prize, the shimmering halls of the Federation government. From the moment Isaac graduated from the Corps, he spent the next fifteen years, from the age of twenty-four until thirty-nine, acting as a represenative of the United Federation of Planets.
In his 40th Year, an opportunity opened up. In 2381 the Senator representing Earth announced retirement and Isaac cashed in on his connections to line up a campaign platform built on reform. He ran a successful bid and nailed the seat. In 2384 he won reelection and began an exploratory committee to look at a presidential run in 2388.
