Baj was born on Earth. Their (Baj prefers to use gender neutral pronouns) parents followed fairly traditional betazoid practices, with the mother serving as the matriarchal head of the household. Despite this traditional betazoid home life, growing up on Earth provided a very Terran childhood. This duality had a huge impact on Baj, causing them to feel very comfortable with an ambiguous personal identity.
Baj's betazoid-human heritage gave them minor empathic abilities, which was both a blessing and a curse for a child. Baj has always been very sensitive and sensitive to the feelings of others, which can make social situations challenging but especially meaningful. An early aptitude for technology led Baj to spend a great deal of time tinkering with machines, an experience that Baj found to be a calming, centering practice. As a young adult, this passion for technology lead them to pursue a career as an engineer on a commercial vessel but this never felt satisfying. Baj's strong sense of empathy creates a need to help others. Starfleet offers the perfect balance of technical work with a heavy emphasis on making the galaxy a better place for everyone.
