Relationship with Tobias

Childhood

Throughout Tobias' childhood and teenage years, Tobias was in awe of his father. He enjoyed the experience of traveling from world to world with his father and appreciated that Corbin liked to allow him to integrate with the local children and to try out native foods and games.

The adults Tobias interacted with all emphasized their deep respect for his father and until he was in his late teens, Tobias expected that he would follow in his father's footsteps and join the diplomatic corps. Corbin encouraged Tobias to work towards this end and used his connections to secure his son a prestigious position as an aide to the well-respected Ambassador Vadosia.

When Tobias returned from the posting a little under a year later, his ambitions had changed. He was no longer thinking about a future as a diplomat but rather wanting to attend Starfleet Academy to become a Starfleet officer. Corbin, unenthusiastic about Tobias' change of heart, suggested that Tobias take some time to consider what he wanted to do with his life. Tobias agreed and diverted his efforts towards being accepted as a host by the Symbiosis Commission.

After the Joining

Newly joined to the Brel symbiont, Tobias spent his first few months after the joining struggling to deal with the four lifetimes of memories and experiences he had acquired. He returned home warily, already contemplating resuming his application to the Academy and leaving Trill.

A little under two months later, Tobias had been accepted into the Academy and had departed the family home. In the years that have passed since then Tobias has never returned to his homeworld, nor has he seen his parents. When he occasionally calls home he tries to time his communications to coincide with times at which he knows his father will not be home.

Tobias and Corbin continue to love each other but they can no longer communicate on a personal level. When one wishes to send a message to the other, they do so through Tobias' mother or brother as intermediaries. Both hope that some day their relationship will heal but they have little idea how this might be achieved.
