Lance was conceived during a Vulcan experiment, monitored by the Doctor Recubia. The Vulcans took some DNA from one of their crew and one of Ellena Firestarter, who at that time was a part of their crew, who then became the one who incubated the crossbreed in her womb. Soon after however, the ship where this experiment took place was attacked by a group of ship raiders. Ellena was able to get to an escape pod, but only at the cost of a fellow crewman's life, a Vulcan Soljack. Eventually she went back to her own planet where Lance was eventually born. Soon after he was born, his mother discovered that he aged half as fast as any normal Betazoid, this caused problems later in his life. 12 years later Lance discovered his telepathic abilities, although they weren't as strong as a normal Betazoid, it was sufficient enough. During his childhood Lance learned how to be truthful, however sometimes he was too truthful. He then went to school until he was 20 years of age excelling at all the sciences although weak when it came to sports. Lance then went to follow in his mother's footsteps and went to Starbase Academy where he earned the nickname Mini-Elf because of his appearance that resembled that in Earth fantasy books and his genetic drawbacks. Some activities he did were chess and robotics.
The first and smallest ship that Lance had served on. Under the now then Captain Rhys Bejain, the fresh-faced ensign served as a science officer aboard the ship. There, it was discovered that his body did not have the same biological responses to drugs. An example of this occurring was when he was injected with a hypo and was rendered unconscious. He didn't serve long on the ship however, as was soon reassigned to the USS Steadfast.
After numerous years of his Starfleet career, Lance became genetically overcome by an "Evil Consciousness." Result of this possession has left him a female. The reason for this being that his genetics had to be altered so that the hostile consciousness could take over. As of yet, no one else is aware of the entity.

Lance excels at all sciences and tends to be fairly social. He tells the truth always and works hard to perfect himself. He also made major findings in the areas of electronics and some minor ones in biological warfare .
Lance unlike his Vulcan father tends to be too emotional, due to the fact he was raised on his mother's planet. Because of his lack of interest in sports, he is weaker than the average Vulcan. Lance also lacks in the area of creativity and sometimes isn't serious enough during dangerous situations. Also, because he only ages half as fast as a normal Betazoid, he looks like a 15-16 year-old, which causes dissent.
