Hanar was born in (Year), to Olba Vaxx-Tuk, an oceanographer; Mo Baxx, a financial analyst for the Bank of Bolarus; and Zipok Taneko, a Bolian crystal steel dealer and freighter captain. Born near the warp core of his co-father's freighter in the same manner as his ten younger siblings would be, "Hanny" (as he prefers to be called) soon showed an early aptitude for Security and Tactical that was matched only by his adventurous spirit.
His training in the Security and investigation through Bolarus IX's renowned Intelligence Academy was punctuated during the summers by service aboard his co-father's freighter, the true highlight of Hanar's academic years. While his schoolmates were enrolled in summer camps to give them an academic edge, Olsam's adventurous nature was indulged through travel with Captain Taneko. Although his duties were limited by his competence, his service taught him to work with others aboard a starship and allowed him to visit systems like Benzar, Teneebia, Alpha Centauri, Sol and Tellar at a relatively young age.
Tuk continued his education in Security by focusing on Ship and Planetary Security and tactics at Starfleet Academy. Although he was considered an exemplary student, he was noted more for the desire to acquire and apply knowledge than to perform admirably on examinations and that left him only within the top half of his graduating class.
His time at the Academy was characterized by his penchant for eating and culinary arts and the occasional prank, or two, yet dogged determination. For his cadet field training, Tuk's request to be posted on the USS Essex, to assist the Security department aboard a Steamrunner class vessel whose responsibility was to patrol the outer fringes of the Romulan Neutral Zone, he saw some combat action during his field training.
Like many Security students, he was pressed into heavy tactical duties duty, which sparked his interest in tactical planning and maneuvers. After that he dove into honing his skills, in order to be the best he could be, at all times.
His thirst for knowledge led Hanar to seek increased responsibility, supported by his academic work and determination. His natural Bolian drive for excellence pressed him to continue working toward improving his skills in marksmanship and hand to hand combat, as well as general tactical skills.
After completing his training, Hanar was assigned to the USS Liberator. But he soon grew as disgruntled as a Bolian could be when his specialized skills failed to find a use during two years of planetary survey missions. He put in for a transfer to another ship, and was assigned to the USS Terre Haute and was quickly requested to serve as Acting Assistant Chief Security/Tactical Officer by the captain of the USS Terre Haute, who was eager to utilize Hanar’s skills in meeting the Terre Haute's mission of participating in preemptive patrol missions. Far better utilized aboard the Terre Haute, Hanar was soon assigned the added responsibility of training the security officers serving aboard the ship. He gained a reputation for being an extremely tough and demanding instructor but widely admired for his breadth of knowledge, expertise in Security and Tactical skills (and slightly goofy personality).
As Hanar continued to share his expertise and extensive knowledge, his reputation got around and soon, paperwork was initiated to have him transferred to the the USS Garuda.
Paperwork and new orders found him transferred to the USS Invicta.
