Ashton grew up like most Trill children. He had a love for life and a zest for the extraordinary. He did, however, have parents who were both involved in Starfleet in one way or another. He was very good at Terran football and was given a scholarship to attend Harvard University on a scholarship for academics and athletics.
This was a new thing for his family. All had grown on Trill and were in love with everything there. Ashton was able to quickly go through premed and play a sport he dearly loved. Upon graduation, he came back to Trill to add alien medicine to his already expanded knowledge of medicine. Quickly he grasped what he needed to succeed as a physician.
On his 19th birthday he met Looryx Bendix. The two of them became great friends. The Bendix symbiont found Ashton to be full of passion and life. Upon the death of Looryx, Bendix chose Ashton as his next host. Ashton never thought about joining Starfleet, but with having Bendix's past host memories flooding into him, he felt that Starfleet was where he belonged.
Joining Starfleet was a joy. Everything seemed to flow for Bendix. He finished top in his class and was given his choice of assignment.
Bendix is fun loving. He enjoys being with others and gets great joy from making people happy. He works hard as a surgeon, because he feels compelled to assist his fellow man. He is dashing and has a joy for music and cooking. Considers himself a ladies man.
Former Lives of Bendix

Dorian was inspired by his mother's science fiction to bring such fantasies closer to reality. Dorian's education includes master's degrees in real world physics, as well as warp drive physics. Dorian was part of a team that had designed a more efficient warp engine which lead to a recalibration of the of the warp factor scale.

Julanna was killed during a battle of honor when his words were mistaken by the son of Kral. As Julanna prepared to fight the young warrior, he was attacked from behind by friends of the boy--they knew Julanna would defeat the boy in honorable combat. The boy and his friends were dishonored by the actions.
2201-2251 - Epharyn was a scientist. He made his home on the Romulan boarder, observing the phenomena that few Federation scientists had taken the chance to observe.

Using the research Epharyn Bendix, Kyrii assisted in terraforming Saelus VI in order to provide a home for the Nyccha'a. Kyrii moved to Deep Space Nine when the Federation took control of the station. She was excited about the prospect of studying the Bajoran wormhole. In 2374, Kyrii was injured in a shuttle accident. Dr. Julian Bashir was unable to save her and Bendix was immediately transferred to Looryx, a Starfleet engineer from the USS Hannibal. The Hannibal had stopped by DS9 before heading into the Beta Quadrant to gather some astrometric data.
2374-2379 - Loory spent the next five years on the USS Hannibal, a Nebula-class starship. Once the Dominion war broke out, the Hannibal was reconfigured for combat. She saw a lot of combat in the First Fleet. In 2379, while the Hannibal was defending a supply yard from an attack by Breen renegades, a conduit near Looryx exploded. He was severely injured during the accident and died shortly afterward, but not before he was able to eject the warp core...saving the ship. Bendix was returned to Trill where the Symbiont was transferred to Ashton.
2379-Present - Ashton is the current Bendix host.
