Arvo Kass was born on the Sethaline Gamma colony to Johann Kass, a young human security officer. His mother was a slave to one of the Syndicate until she was rescued on the Sethaline Gamma colony by Arvo's father, Johann. After falling in love and marrying, Arvo was born 2 years later. However, haunted by the trauma and horrific memories of her time as a slave, Arvo's mother killed herself not long after Arvo was born.
Ill suited to the challenges of raising a half-human, half-Orion child, a grief stricken Johann reached out to various orphanages and religious orders on and near Orion to take the boy in. A de facto vassal state for the Klingon Empire, Orion had started focusing more on martial education. Eventually, the General Timu Gozun Military Academy on Orion agreed to accept him.
Arvo was bullied mercilessly for being half-human and especially for his lighter than normal green skin. In short order, Arvo learned to defend himself and take action, quickly earning the respect of Academy instructors. Arvo especially excelled in marksmanship and has won numerous marksmanship tournaments both on Earth and Orion. Upon graduation, Arvo served 2 tours of duty in the Orion Space Navy (OSN). It was at a joint naval exercise with two Starfleet ships that Kass decided he wanted to attend Starfleet Academy.
Kass entered Starfleet under a pilot program for cadets with prior non-federation military or exploratory service. The two year program was designed to fast-track those with an existing knowledge base with the goal of diversifying the experience of the officer corp within Starfleet. Arvo was one of the older cadets at the academy which segregated him even farther from his classmates. He chose a career in the Sciences Division purely because it was a new direction. His dissertation was titled,"Tri-Quantum Directed Energy Ground Weapons".
