- Place of Birth: Lake Cataria, Betazed

- Mother: Nadia Prox - Nadia Prox is a Starfleet medical officer on stationed on Betazed.
- Father: Sabin Prox - Sabin Prox is a musician and Professor of exomusicology at the University of Betazed. He is particularly accomplished at playing the Trill piano as well as a well known composer.
- Siblings: Brother, Stadi Prox. Stadi was presumed killed during the Dominion occupation of Betazed, resisting a fleet of Jem'Hadar footmen. However on stardate 238406.17 Prox discovered that Stadi was infact still alive when his presumed dead brother was involved in a brawl with a Cardassian on Deep Space 17. During an argument Stadi attempted to attack the Cardassian with a knife, but he had gotten shot with a phaser before he could inflict any wounds. Galvin was on the promenade during the incident, and beamed his brother to the Triumphant's sickbay. After several days of intensive care, Galvin made the order to revive Stadi. However, Stadi then became worse and Galvin realized that he did not have the facilities to take care of his brother. Galvin, to his reluctance, arranged for the Gibraltar to take Stadi back to Deep Space 17.
- Lt.Jg. Tildean Ethelwin: Since Tildaen came aboard the Triumphant, his and Galvin's relationship has grown tremendously. The friendship started off pretty rough due to Tildaens awkward nervousness, but after the two were captured and taken hostage on an away mission to Musca Ommicron IIIa the two have become much closer.
Prox was born on Betazed to his mother and father Nadia and Sabin Prox. His long time and current childhood friend is Dr. Mauria Tripoli. The two grew up on Betazed together where their favorite activity was to take a swim in Lake Cartaria. The two eventually enrolled in Starfleet together, both having ambitions of becoming Doctors or Science Officers. After graduating form Starfleet Medical, the two were eventually separated after graduation from the Academy because Prox was posted to the Triumphant and Mauria was posted to Deep Space 17.
Throughout his schooling, his ego grew more and more. He began to think of himself as very intelligent and superior to his peers. This character flaw that he had developed eventually came back to haunt him when he realized that his ego had hurt the feelings of one of his colleagues Dr. Talon Lee. It was soon after that experience that he began to reevaluate his motives and began to treat those around him with much more respect and integrity.
Interests and Hobbies
The following is a list of Prox's favorite things to do.
Prox has been known to listen to music in sickbay when nobody is around. Lt.Jg. Kassa Quay once walked into sickbay and startled Dr. Prox while he was listening to some Trill piano, an instrument that his father was proficient in.
Prox loves to eat, but hates to eat alone.
- Raixen - A spaghetti-like dish native to Betazed. This Prox's favorite dish.
- Uttaberries - A red berry that Prox enjoys to munch on.
- Swix - Swix are purplish berries native to Betazed. Like many other Betazoids, Prox is allergic to swix.
- Most Betazoids have the ability to actively tune out the thoughts of others. However, Galvin Prox was born with a very rare condition in which he cannot control what he hears or sees. Although he can control when he wants to hear/see something, he does not have control over hearing the thoughts of others at will. Prox is often alienated because others feel that he is invading their privacy when he does not mean too.
