Descended from a distinct cultural group outside of Betazed's House structure, the history of Esbrun’s ancestors stretches back to his planet’s Iron Age. During that time, they had settled in an ore-rich area of fjords and valleys, where they developed a great tradition of artistry and metalwork.

Eventually, they came into conflict with the folk who would eventually become Betazed’s Nineteenth House, who desired their rich and fertile lands. Unable to compete in open battle, the valley people retreated into the hills and caves, and fought a long and bitter war with the settlers. Over time, they developed the ability to shield their minds from other Betazoids: critical for throwing off pursuit and protecting their holdings.

When the war finally ended, and Esbrun’s ancestors were welcomed back into their homelands. However, even thousands of years later this ancient conflict springs up periodically: most recently five years ago, where a great many young Betazoids were taken in by the rhetoric of a charismatic nationalist, including the daughter of his most prominent political rival.

The rival was Esbrun’s mother, Lontis. While his elder brother followed their father in learning the ancient crafts of his people, Esbrun took to the stars.

Career History

A product of his mother’s campaign of cooperation and shared understanding, Esbrun attended a school in Betazed's capital. There he developed an affinity for the sciences, but his cultural roots were hard to shake: leading him to specialise in metallurgy, where a tutor of his suggested he apply to Starfleet. This lead Esbrun to the Academy, studying Science and Engineering.

Esbrun's final evaluation took place on Starbase 118, under the command of Sal Taybrim and Oddas Aria. From there, he was posted to the USS Montreal.


Esbrun fluctuates between cool detachment and warm enthusiasm depending on the situation. He tends towards the latter when interacting with peers, but often remains formal with superior officers, even when off duty.

Ensign Vardai prefers not to talk about his telepathic abilities, and rarely brings them up. Even when pressed, he remains humble. Occasionally, events force him to drop the veil and unleash his powers in full: when this happens he becomes deathly formal. He is well aware of how unsettling others can find this, and so avoids such situations.

If Esbrun has a flaw, it would be a reluctance to share information that puts him at a disadvantage.
