Background


Most children on Alpha Centauri III are born at the Lady of Significant Mercy Hospital in New Samarkand and Jarred Thoran was no different. The son of Walter and Bethany and younger brother to Oscar, Jarred had a relatively unremarkable early life. A few months after Jarred was born, one of his mother’s friends gave birth to a boy, Will, who over time would become Jarred’s closest friend. A few years later, Jarred became an older brother, his mother had given birth to a girl, Fern.

As Jarred’s parents were both professionals, this meant Jarred and Fern spent a lot of their early life being looked after by Will’s mother, leading the three to become very close friends, almost inseparable.

Jarred’s father was history professor at the local university, meaning the Thoran household was filled with books, as well as artefacts and antiques. When not out causing mischief with his friends, Jarred would sneak into his father’s study and spend hours looking at all the fascinating objects from bygone eras. Often Oscar would catch him, and depending on what mood he was in, either regale Jarred with tales of the objects' fantastical histories, or try to get Jarred in trouble with his father.

Thankfully Jarred's father was not one to chastise the children, but would instead indulge Jarred, giving him the real tale behind the objects. There was one item in particular that Jarred was captivated by, a hand crafted model of HMS Victory, a sailing vessel from Earth's history. It was this object that started Jarred’s love of military history and warfare, particularly old Earth naval history. Once a month his father would take Jarred and his brother to a holosuite where they would take it in turns to recreate historical scenes, with Jarred always choosing to play out scenes from great historical battles, almost exclusively from the massive sailing ships of 18th and 19th century Earth.

These experiences, along with his father’s guidance, meant Jarred excelled at history at school, always earning top marks for any history related project.

At the age of seven, Jarred and Will were enrolled in a kickboxing class at a local gymnasium. While the two may have been the closest of friends outside of the class, when they sparred together most would have thought they were bitter enemies, never giving an inch. They rose through the ranks together, until they were eventually awarded their black belts. This was one of Jarred’s greatest and proudest moments.

During his teen years, Fern admitted to Jarred that she had feelings for Will, but did not know what to do. Jarred couldn’t help but smile, for a few days before, Will had told him the same thing. The two eventually started seeing each other.

Jarred only had one problem in his life, his older brother Oscar. It wasn’t that Jarred disliked him, it was just everything Jarred did, his brother did better. They both loved history, but Oscar seemed to excel it, as if he had a special gift. This was especially noticeable when it came to their father. Whilst his father had always encouraged Jarred’s love of history, he had taken it to another level with his brother. Oscar was almost inseparable from their father, which did cause feelings of jealousy from Jarred, feelings which he hated.

When it came time to choose subjects for college, Jarred didn’t have to think very hard about what to study. He was top for History, consistently gaining top marks, and even helping tutor others from his class. During his final year, Jarred entered a system-wide project, to write an essay on what the student perceived to be the most important historical event in the system's history. Jarred poured his heart and soul into the essay, spending many hours writing and re-writing. Despite all the hard work, Jarred came second; however his essay had caught the attention of University of Alpha Centauri’s Dean, who invited Jarred for an interview. During the interview, the Dean quizzed Jarred over his knowledge of history and was so impressed with him, he offered him a scholarship to study with them.

Jarred had never been more proud in his life, not even gaining his black belt had made him this proud. While Jarred’s parents had been pleased with his scholarship, he did not receive the same praise and acknowledgement that his brother had, when he had received his.

It was because of this experience that Jarred decided to do something different with his life. He had always had a fascination with military history, as well as naval warfare. After rejecting the scholarship, Jarred decided he would join Starfleet. At first his parents were shocked, and his mother upset, but after talking it through with them, including a visit from a Recruitment Officer, Jarred’s parents came around to the idea and fully supported his decision.

Jarred's father is a quiet, scholarly man who has a love of history. He encouraged the Jarred's fascination with history, but never to the point of being pushy. Some of Jarred's fondest memories had been those with his father, either on days out or sitting in the study as he told stories. The two remain quite close, despite Jarred deciding on a career in Starfleet. He is currently a lecturer within the History Department at the University of Alpha Centauri, Alpha Centauri III.

Thoran - Mother, 49

Jarred's mother is a very professional, driven woman and also kind and compassionate. Due to her long work hours, she was not around much during Jarred's childhood. When she was not working was ever the doting mother, relishing the time she had with the children. Jarred and his mother were never particularly close, always favouring his father. She is currently a doctore based at the Our Lady of Significant Mercy Hospital, Alpha Centauri III.

Thoran - Brother, 30

Jarred and Oscar have always had a rivalry. The two were always vying for their father's attention, as they both were fascinated with history. It always seemed that whatever Jarred did, Oscar did it better. Over the years, they have gotten closer, but there still reminds a friendly rivalry. Oscar followed their father into studying history, and so far has gained a Bachelors and Masters in the subject. Oscar is studying for his PhD in Anthropology & Archaeology at the University of Alpha Centauri, Alpha Centauri III.

Thoran - Sister, 23

A few years after Jarred was born, there was a new addition to the Thoran household. His mother gave birth to a girl, Fern. Whilst Jarred and Oscar did not always get along, with Fern it was a different story. Jarred was ever the doting older brother and the two were as close as siblings could be, almost inseparable. Fern decided to follow her mother into medicine and at present is finishing her Medical Degree at Lady of Significant Mercy Hospital, Alpha Centauri III. She is currently dating Jarred's friend Will.

Anderson - Best Friend, 26

Will and Jarred were destined to be friends. They were born a few months apart, and Will's father was a colleague of Jarred's mother at the hospital. The two would often play together, and as they got older had very similar interest. During their teen years, Will started dating Jarred's younger sister, a relationship which has continued to this day. Will is currently practicing Medicine at Archer University Hospital, Alpha Centauri III.
