Laudean Commendation 239606.27
USS Veritas
The Laudean Commendation typically goes to those who feature a rare species, yet Xerix's writer Johnny has put a spotlight on a familiar Trek species the Betazoids that goes far more in-depth than what the shows ever did. In addition to his own plans for his characters, his enthusiasm for exploring more about this matriarchal society of telepaths has inspired many other players who have Betazoid characters or a connection to Betazed. From the small foundation we saw of Deanna Troi in TNG, Johnny has fleshed out the intricacies of Noble House culture and eagerly welcomed others to add to it with their own ideas, all of which has helped make the Betazoids to one of Trek's most interesting species in the 118 universe.

  • Mother: Celestria Xerix (deceased), Daughter of the Third House
  • Father: Jovari Sar Xerix
  • Siblings: ( one, deceased)
  • Spouse: None
  • Children: None biological, His heir apparent is Victoire Marchionne Xerix, Ghant’s young cousin.
  • Personal Assistant: Maven Standiford, a holo-program hardwired into a mobile emitter,

Maven was Ghant’s childhood nanny and functioned as something of a mother after Celestria passed away She is now his personal assistant, and the closest “person” in his life. The two frequently quarrel, but only because they are so close. Ghant continues to partition the Betazed Government to recognize Standiford as a life form.


Ghant is driven by a sense of duty and a desire to protect his homeworld and the Federation. He feels that Starfleet failed at protecting citizens at the battle of Betazed, the colony worlds along the Cardassian border, and a number of other instances.

He is talented as a pilot and has excellent diplomatic skills, but lacks the patience and determination of some of his peers

Personal History

Ghant’s mother, Celestria Xerix was one of the freedom fighters on Betazed and was lost during the ousting of the Dominion forces from their peace-loving planet. Through her, he is Son of the Third House of Betazed.

Ghant’s father Jovari was the Cultural Attaché for the Risian Ambassador to Betazed, and chose to remain on Betazed and raise Ghant.

Maven Standiford helped Jovari raise Ghant, and continues to be an influential person in his life.

Ghant was betrothed at a young age to Mara Seastri, Daughter of the Fourth House of Betazed. Although many of his contemporaries chose not to follow this custom, Ghant and Mara believed in the institution, and felt that each was the other’s Imzadi. Due to distance the relationship didn't work and the two went their separate ways. There is now much hostility between the couple and the two Houses have become rivals, with Victoire caught in the middle

Ghant joined Starfleet because he believed in them, and he hoped to champion a more protective role within the Federation.

Personal Relationships

  • Maven Standiford helped Jovari raise Ghant, and continues to be an influential person in his life.
