- Unlike the domus he shared with other Legion recruits at home on Koropia, his quarters are kept rather spartan.
- His nature is to keep the area clean and tidy. It is a place of comfort and reflection, however he does currently share it with another Ensign, who never seems to be there when he is...

- Hobbies and Pastimes:
- Keeping fit is his main hobby, bringing him closer to his young life.
- He likes sports, mainly wrestling and athletics.
- He enjoys running, swimming and reading, though not necessarily at the same time.

- Believes respect should be given with every word spoken and tends to bristle when not.
- Ambitions and Goals:
- His main ambition is to be able to perform the cursus honorem, scaling the mountain region of their homeland. Those who reach the summit without the aid of technology are granted the status of dominus, a citizenship, a place within the Senate and an area of land.
- Since his father's death, their ancestral land had been distributed to other members of the Senate.
- Physical Limitations:
- Koropian's are known for their extensive stamina, especially when faced with extreme situations.
- Being only part Koropian, there are elements of his Human physiology that act as a bar to him performing some of the feats that other Koropian males can.
- This is a great detriment to the psychology of Koropians, who strive for perfection. He has sought to overcome these physical limitations from childhood.
Father: Robin Malik, a Human, was raised on Earth. He enjoyed an extensive career in Starfleet, acting as an Ambassador to those integrating more readily with the Federation. He was stationed on Koropia, where he met Mariella. After the birth of his second child, Tobias, he was stationed on the USS Bellerophon and in 2367, was lost at the Battle of Wolf 359.
Mother: Mariella Annari, a Koropian, is a native of Koropia, educated in their culture and immersed in their way of life. She trained with the honour guard and the female Legionaries, learning to fight, use strategy and negotiate. She was the inspiration for Tobias to become a Tactician. She also worked in Xeniobiology through Starfleet, although not in the military. His mother taught him battle technique until he was old enough to be taken for military service education. She moved the family to Vega Colony, Vega IX to enable her children to have a career in Starfleet without being bound by the strict dictations of Koropian society.
Sister: Laelia Annari, a Koropian/Human, born to the same parents. She is the older of the siblings, born on Koropia and educated in their military practice. She is an excellent marksman, both rifle and composite bow. When the family moved to the Vega Colony, Vega IX, she joined Starfleet, qualifying in Medicine and becoming a Medical Officer stationed throughout the region.
Toby was raised in the large city of Laconia, Marathon by his mother and elder sister. He and his sister were reared by their mother until they were at a suitable age to be given over to the city elders and enrolled in the military academy. The Koropian military is built upon strict foundations that dictate a level of physical discipline, courage and loyalty to Koropia. He learnt to endure the harshest of conditions and accepted into the Legionaries of Koropia. Having lost his father at a young age and barely remembering him at all, Toby has relied upon the elders and the Senate of Koropia for guidance in his young life, relying on their wisdom. His grandfather proved to be the better educator and taught Toby how to function, how to behave and how to be respectful in all situations. At the age of eighteen, the family moved to Vega Colony, Vega IX so that Toby could enroll in Starfleet and have the best education possible. It was on Vega that Toby declared his ambitions and joined Starfleet, enrolling in the Academy as a Tactical major.
