- Full Name: Genkos Sim
- Age: Middle Twenties
- Species: Betazoid
- Date of Birth: 6th June, 2369
- Place of Birth: Dekoa, Betazed
- Gender: Male
- Telepathic Rating: T4
- Height: 6'1"
- Weight: 210 lbs
- Hair: Dark brown; short but wavy.
- Eyes: Black
- Build: Slim
- Skin Tone: Pale
- Scar Tissue: A mass of scar tissue around the knee from the transporter injury.
- Carriage: Genkos has been walking with a cane for over ten years, so he is used to it. His gait could probably be determined as swift but limping.
- Off duty clothing: Genkos has a fondness for darker colours - dark greens and blues for instance - that he usually demonstrates in his nehru-style jackets, which he often pairs with a sash of a contrasting colour, thin linen-like trousers, and loafers. Always paired with a cane.
- Voice: Genkos' voice is quite deep and comes across as stern, which he counteracts by smiling generously. He frequently utters the phrase 'in good faith' - a Betazoid expression.
- Handedness: Right
Genkos had a caring nature as a child. His father, a veterinarian, introduced him to biology, his first passion. Couple that with his natural empathic powers and you have a caring young man, yearning to explore the stars.
This dream was contorted however by an horrific transporter accident that left Genkos without a left leg below the knee, leaving him reliant on a cane for mobility. Beaming up to the Sunfire, a cargo ship, Genkos arrived without his lower left leg. He now has a cybernetic calf and foot. The cane is almost entirely psychosomatic. Genkos then threw himself into his medical degree, burying himself into the study of Medicine in all its forms, sacrificing any social life for the craft. He joined the Starfleet Academy after achieving his MD, and soon found himself rather isolated from the rest of his class. His empathic nature meant he knew that people found his manner brusque and rough. He softened over the years at the Academy, humbled by several professors' attitudes towards medicine.
A laugh comes easy to Genkos, and he likes to amuse others as well. Although he can tolerate other people disliking him, he will do his uttermost to make others like him. Like most Betazoids, he has very few boundaries when it comes to personal information, which he volunteers easily. However, he is prone to feeling his own mistakes deeply, and will go to any lengths to absolve them.
Hobbies & Pastimes
- Academia: As a Doctor, Genkos believes in constant education and re-education and as such reads and researches the constantly developing world of modern medicine.
- Music: Although he cannot play an instrument, Genkos does enjoy listening to all sorts of different music from ancient Terran music by the likes of Elton John, to classical Betazoid works by Asubrel Ta.
- Golf: An old Earth pastime that his father brought back, golf is Genkos' preferred form of exercise.
Likes & Dislikes
- Utta berries: Genkos' favourite flavour
- Green Tea: Genkos' favourite drink
- Showers: Genkos likes to reflect in a long, warm shower.
- Fauna: As the son of a vet, Genkos is fascinated by fauna in all its forms, and loves to visit zoos, safaris and zoological reserves.
- his Leg: Genkos is incredibly insecure about his leg
- Transporters: Genkos still holds a deep anger towards transporters over the loss of his leg, and refuses to be beamed anywhere. This is changing after the shuttle crash on Trill, and now Genkos hates both methods of transportation
- Introductions: Shaking hands with a cane is always slightly uncomfortable, and Genkos severely dislikes the looks that people can give him when they first meet. The fact that he can feel their sympathy doesn't help much either.

Father - Tillul Sim
Personality/Appearance: A semi-retired veterinarian on Genkos' home planet Betazed, Tillul Sim is a tall, slim and incredibly personable Betazoid male. Tillul was born in 2335, making him about 60 years old.
Time on Earth: Tillul has a fondness for old Earth music, especially Elton John. This stems from his time training on Earth, where he met his first wife, Fumiko, now deceased. Tillul also grew a fondness for the Earth sport golf, and brought back a set of clubs when he returned to Betazed after the death of Fumiko. He trained in New York City and had lived with a little old Yiddish couple, whose vernacular has slipped into both his and his son's own speech. It was recently revealed that Tillul had murdered Fumiko after meeting Laxe. He had fallen out of love with her, and when she refused to let him leave, he forcibly pushed her down the stairs outside their apartment.
Relationship with Laxe: Laxe Sim is the second wife of Tillul Sim, and she believed until recently that they had met after Fumiko's "accidental death". In actual fact, Fumiko did not die until a few months after Tillul and Laxe met, and Laxe was already pregnant when Fumiko died. Tillul murdered her, and made it look like an accident. Laxe recently discovered this when Genkos eliminated the mental block his father had placed in him.
Relationship with Genkos: Genkos helped his father in the surgery practically every day until he went off to the Academy, although sometimes he would raid the 'medicinal' alcohol. Whilst Genkos had been growing up Tillul had taken him camping on a local island every summer, and when Genkos was a teenager, Tillul inserted a mental block into his son's mind, which Genkos has only just discovered. These trips were a favourite of Genkos, although this ended when Genkos lost his leg. It was to aid Tillul in surgery aboard a starship that Genkos lost his leg, and Tillul holds some guilt over the incident, and as such created Genkos' first cane from a tree in the family's back garden. When Genkos graduated, Tillul handed him a bonding gift which contains something that Genkos will apparently need in his darkest hour. Tillul had opened the box that his father had handed him on the day Genkos had lost his leg, and it contained a battered veterinary textbook, which he supposed was to remind him of his chosen course in life. This incident had also further deepened Tillul's atheistic tendencies. Genkos does not yet know that his father is a murderer.
Mother - Laxe Sim
Personality/Appearance: Laxe Sim (nee Adea) is a slight woman, small with tightly curled white hair. She was born in 2346, making her about 50 years old. She grew up in a wealthy family and as such feels no need to work, preferring to pass the time in spiritual contemplation.
Relationship with Tillul: Laxe Sim is the second wife of Tillul Sim. She knows very little of her husband's first wife, except that she was murdered by him. She is about a decade younger than him. She was on a visit to Earth when she met Tillul, they fell in love and she returned to Betazed a few months later with a heavy heart. On returning to Betazed, she discovered she was pregnant, and contacted Tillul. Having just killed Fumiko in order to be with Laxe, he decided a fresh start was best and so made his way back to Betazed just in time to witness the birth of Genkos. She recently invaded her husband's mind and discovered the deception that Tillul had been concealing for nearly thirty years. Disgusted with her husband, she is ensuring that he is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Relationship with Genkos: Genkos is close to his mother, and considers her to be an excellent cook. She has always been slightly disappointed that Genkos has a stronger bond with his father than with her - preferring Tillul's interests to hers. She could never get Genkos to share her interest in comic books. The only victory she can praise is that Genkos is not an atheist - he may not be as devoutly religious as she is, but Genkos shares his mother's spirituality, and the pair of them frequented shrines together.
Genkos has a few different canes, for different uses/situations.
- His primary cane is made of from the branch of a sadi tree that grew in his parents' back garden, Tillul Sim crafted it for him after his accident
- Another is his dark hardwood cane, with a derby handle. Genkos tends to use this at dinners or other situations where he might need to be sat down for periods of time, as the handle hooks easily onto the side of a table.
- A third cane he owns has a chrome plated handle, which was originally a hame - the handle from a horse saddle. It has a twisting, carved design on its ash wood stick, and is perfect for the outdoors. This cane was destroyed in the shuttle crash on Trill.
- Genkos has a entirely metal cane for use in sterile environments in sickbay.
- Ferier Kian recently carved Genkos a beautiful hardwood cane as a gift, which has become one of Genkos' beloved possessions.
- Genkos was given a box with a painted smile on by his father. It contains an unknown object, but it is a family tradition in the Sims to give a gift that will help in the owner's hour of need.
Apart from a strict medical degree on Betazed, Genkos also has some field experience of veterinary medicine, gained from his time helping his father in the surgery. Whilst at the Academy, Genkos majored in Medicine completing courses in; Bedside Manner, Medical Ethics, Clinical Fundamentals, Immunology, Diagnosis in both Major and Minor species, and one module on Psychiatry and Mental Health. During prep week, Genkos had an unpleasant encounter with Lurith, the Romulan instructor, which has given Genkos some, as yet, unresolved issues. Due to this, he could have flunked out of the academy, if it weren't for the support of Vulcan Medical Ethics professor, Dr Faa.
For Genkos' full transcript, see Genkos Sim/Transcript
During the two week prep squad session at the start of his training at the Academy, Genkos was put through his paces by a particularly unpleasant Romulan, Lurith. Lurith forced Genkos to repeat the obstacle course without the use of his cybernetic calf. It took Genkos three hours, but he managed to complete the course, despite Lurith's constant beration. Whether or not this encounter has given Genkos a permanent dislike of Romulans has yet to be seen.
- Dr. Faa
The Medical Ethics professor at the Academy, Dr, Faa was a key figure in Genkos' development. After his encounter on the obstacle course with Lurith, Genkos had been on the verge of giving up, but it was the stern but fair Vulcan logic of Dr Faa that pulled him back in. She began the first lecture of every module with the question "If you could have any superpower what would it be?", to which Genkos' answer was always "Telekinesis".
Aboard the Gorkon
Genkos' quarters aboard the Gorkon are on Deck 8. Apart from the usual furniture, there is a cane rack next to the door. He also has a set of crystal decanters which he keeps topped up with sapphire wine.
On arriving aboard the Gorkon, Genkos was thrown straight into the deep end. Meeting Yiggtissi on his arrival in sickbay, his first duty was to stabilise the recently wounded Tasha MacFarlane, and once she was stabilised, he helped to heal the Saurian's shoulder. At the close of shift, he went to his quarters for the very first time.
Shore Leave - Cloud Skipper, Palanon
With the business aboard Starbase 173 completed, the Gorkon crew were given shore leave on the pleasure cruise ship, the Cloud Skipper. At first Genkos visited the spa where he met with Tasha MacFarlane, Ayiana Sevo, Sasak and Petra Bjarnadottir-Stoyer, after which he visited the on-board nature reserve with Ovidia Rosicia. Returning to the Gorkon, he carried out Eerie's annual physical exam, after which he was embarrassed when interrupted dancing. After this, Genkos, Yiggtissi and Tali Namura created and attached MacFarlane's new forearm, an operation which Genkos carried out with Yiggtissi's assistance. They then ran a battery of tests on the new arm to test its capabilities, after which Yiggtissi, Namura and Genkos had a meal together in Sickbay's Crew Lounge. After the shift, Genkos had a shower in his quarters before visiting the Gorkon's bar, Sto'Vo'Kor, where he bumped into Yiggtissi and Xanti Ilas Ysa Liss. The next day, Genkos went to the awards ceremony in the Wardroom where he saw Admiral Reynolds for the first time, before having a drink with Orson Marshall and Eerie, during which he witnessed the return of Nugra to the Gorkon.
Mission - The Sikuna Colony
Genkos was attached to the team sent to the Administration Centre to help with the protesting Romulan citizens. With Eerie, Ayiana Sevo, Tasi, and Alucard Vess, Genkos met with Governor Khaveid and entered the facility. After a heated discussion with the Governor, Genkos and Eerie were sent outside to talk to some of the protesters, but with an storm incoming, and with tempers running high, the decision was made to move everybody indoors. Once inside, Genkos helped the others disperse care packages, but an antagonist encounter with Dhisuia got Genkos reprimanded by Sevo, Vess and the Governor. Back in the conference room, their meeting was cut short by the announcement that a beating was occurring on the floor above. It was Dhisuia, the woman who had called Genkos a cripple who was being beaten up. Whilst Eerie and Sevo stopped the violence, Genkos gave first aid. However it was not enough, and he, Vess and Tasi stayed to stabilise her whilst Eerie and Sevo went off to get supplies. They had to re-inflate her lung, fix a pelvic fracture and stop a hematoma, which was made considerably easier when Eerie and Sevo returned with medical supplies.
Shore Leave - Trill
Arriving back from Sikuna, Genkos tried to relax with a game of golf on the holodeck before carrying out Ferier Lanta's annual physical, as well as Davine D'fini's examination on her arrival on board the Gorkon. Consumed by guilt over Dhisuia's beating, he called his parents for some advice. He was then invited to dinner with Yiggtissi and his family. On his way there, he was flown down to the planet by Crewman Roshier Jackson. He shared his shuttlecraft with Tasi, with whom he had a long conversation about Genkos' actions on Sikuna, Lurith, and Genkos' general mental health. He then had an incredibly pleasant dinner with Yiggtissi, his wife Innouasag, and his daughter Jainnoirra. During the crew's camping trip, Genkos spent an evening around the campfire with Groznin Smith, Caedan Nkai and Sera zh'Aella. That evening he had a dreadful nightmare that brought all his fears together. The next morning he breakfasted with Jainnorra, then they met with Davine D'fini to go the zoo together. However, the rickety shuttle they had boarded crashed, killing the pilot, Magna Vugnis, who was impaled on half of Genkos' cane. Genkos lost his cybernetic leg, but D'fini and Jainnorra had only minor injuries. They were swiftly rescued and twenty-four hours later Genkos was back in his quarters on the Gorkon with a new biosynthetic leg, where he met with Davine and they discussed the aftermath of the crash, before heading to the mess hall for dinner. The next evening, the penultimate on Trill, Genkos was promoted to Lieutenant (JG) and received his first task from the new CMO, Yiggtissi - conduct a report on the efficacy of changing the standard medkit. After the Gorkon set off, Genkos carried out a routine check-up on Valesha Sienelis which was distinctly uncomfortable for him, as she is a Romulan. However, it made him start to see the Romulans from a different light.
Mission - Skarbek
Mission - Waking Up
In order to try and escape the Dream State, Genkos joined minds with Erin Reynolds in an attempt to contact the conscious mind of Admiral Quinn Reynolds. Although she was able to tell them their real identities as Starfleet officers, she was unable to help them wake up. After leaving them alone, Genkos explored Erin's mind revealing her real identity and personality, and then she did the same to Genkos. In doing so, she unleashed a psychic block that Genkos was unaware of that had been placed there by his father Tillul Sim. Before he could process that, he woke up in Shuttle Bay 2 with Lt. (JG) Smith and Lt. Marshall, and tried to investigate an accident that had occurred therein. Before long he was called to Sickbay to carry out a successful spleen replacement on Caedan Nkai with the aid of the EMH.
Shore Leave - Palanon
After performing the operation, Genkos left his patient and took a shower, which was interrupted by the EMH. Returning to his quarters, he called home, and discussed the revelation of the psychic block with his mother. He also sent a brief message to Erin Reynolds to discuss their mental connection, before bumping into Tali Namura and going to Sto'Vo'Kor with her. They had a meal with Xanti Ilas Ysa Liss, after which Genkos returned to his quarters. He then received a visit from Ferier Kian who asked him for advice over his relationship with Emilia Krugol and also gave him a beautifully handcarved cane. Not long after, Kian visited Genkos in sickbay with very low isoboramin, and together they shared flashbacks to one of Kian's past lives in the Dominion War.
Genkos first bonded with the large Brikar when Lt. Commander Eerie had his annual check-up. His reluctance to have the check-up, coupled with his wry sense of humour made a strong impression on Genkos, who enjoys Eerie's company. His presence on the Sikuna mission provided Genkos with physical and mental reassurance.
The First Officer aboard the Gorkon, Sevo helped train Genkos before his assignment to the Gorkon. They haven't really socialised, and they clashed over Genkos' behaviour on Sikuna. Genkos wants to impress her, but he knows that will now be an uphill struggle.
Genkos respects Tasi's abilities and intuition, and feels that he can rely on her discretion.
After a rocky start, Genkos has grown to respect Alucard and wants to know him better as a friend and as a colleague. He knows that Alucard has experience and knowledge that Genkos can draw upon and use.
The senior medical officer aboard the USS Gorkon, Lt. Yiggtissi was the first member of the crew that Genkos met. Impressing the Saurian with his jumping into the hectic aftermath of the events aboard Starbase 173, Genkos enjoys the company of his Saurian colleague, and they frequently share dinner and drinks. On Trill, Genkos was even invited to dinner with Yiggtissi and his wife & daughter. Their shared history in the Skarbek incident gave them a bond that will never be broken, and their relationship is akin to brotherhood.
