Pre Starfleet Academy: R'rraww grew up on the fertile and rich planet Ferasa the homeworld of the Caitain people. One of his earliest memories was of playing in the forests of his home, and tumbling about with his litter and clan mates. R'rraww has always had a fascination for living things especially plants, and he is very fond of keeping bonsai like trees in his quarters which he prunes and cares for as his hobby.
When he was a kit of 6 anos, his father M'Rreew introduced the young Caitain to martial arts and meditation. By the age of 12 anos, R'rraww was among one of the best in his classes age group of the practice of Quong Rrouw the Claw Dance form of Martial Arts.
Shortly after this tragedy visited upon the Hontrú family, His Clan Sister S'rwwao a Starfleet Officer was killed aboard her ship at the battle of Wolf 359, the Federation's first encounter with the Borg. R'rraww remembered that S'rwwao was so good to him before she left for the Academy. In his devotion to her memory her teaching him right from wrong, and to treat all life as sacred. These ideals made him do all he could to help his community and his clan. He vowed to do something meaningful with is life to honor his clan sister and to bring pride to his family, as she did.
When R'rraww made this decision he was 15 anos, and he spent much of his free studies learning about alien species especially that of the Borg. He disliked the idea of the Bully (something foreign to the Cait way of thinking) R'rraww could not imagine how one who thought of themselves as bigger or more powerful than another would want to bring harm, instead of assistance to another. It was unthinkable.
One year later a major catastrophic event occurred when an planetquake took place on the other side of Ferasa. R'rraww asked to be allowed to be a part of the relief effort and was allowed to take the shuttle over to the other side of his world. This would be his first encounter with off worlders as the Federation sent some of their help in the form of the USS Valance and her crew. The young Caitain was very impressed with how effective and helpful these beings were. It was during this time he would meet the Klingon that would help him shape his career in Starfleet. Four anos later, R'rraww Hontrú became a cadet at Starfleet Academy on Earth, studying strategy and tactics, and tactical space theory. He hopes to become a Starfleet Marine Corp Officer someday so he can train as a pilot. R'rraww would like to fly shuttles and fighter craft.
Academy Days, Courses and Lifestyle
Living Quarters aboard the USS Juneau As the centerpiece of his quarters is a big Orrloca Tree, one of the best trees for a Caitain to lounge in on the Savannah of Freasa. In one of the boughs was the place where he slept. Leaves and branches were arranged in a comfortable way so that he could lay down and relax. At the bottom of the tree to one side a scratching place for him to sharpen his claws. If you were bothered by insects this was not the place you wanted to be. Of course there are no pesky flies or biting harbinger bugs. Yet he did have a few butterflies and bees from Terra. There was a rranaset hive near the fresher which kept the place smelling clean and fresh. What did one expect this wasn’t a jungle after all. The insects (with the exception of the rranaset’s) were not real; they were living constructs and would live for about 4 standard years before they had to be replaced. Also there was sort of a field around the door that shooed them back inside the quarters if there was an opportunity for them to fly outside.
The quarters were a little humid, so that his plants could grow. The floor was a little dirty, but that was how he liked it, full of the smell of fertile Freasa on the ground. There were spots where a regular humanoid could relax. A nice pad of soft foam where a bunch of pillows were arranged around a low table where one could have a nice meal or cup of their favorite beverage. Some places are not in the theme of his home world, the fresher of course, also the food preparation station. The quarters have a replicator and a kitchenette with a convection oven and a heating pad to cook or warm up things brought from outside the quarters. There was also a small place where clothing is kept and a spot where one can change clothes, next to the uniform replicator.
As in most quarters lighting could be adjusted for the occupant. In R'rraww's quarters, the lighting was kept at the spectrum of a twilight on Freasa. The lighting color spectrum was made to replicate Alpha Leonis the trinary star of the Regulus star system. The combination of white/blue, red and orange made for a brilliant mixture of light in the visual spectrum. The Caitain’s quarters were lush and green and humid, it had life and it was a place where he could find comfort after a difficult mission.

Commanding Officer of the USS Juneau
Oddas has been his Commanding officer from his days aboard the USS Eagle. Withdrawn in her interactions with the crew this coffee loving engineer is responsible for the Warp XV engine that is the power behind the new USS Juneau. He respects her as his commanding officer, and sees her genius as a part of her aloof personality. He trusts her and would go into the depths of space and land on an icy hell at her command.
Doctor with a friendly bedside manner and lollipops in her pocket
Billie has the kind of personality that every doctor should have, friendly and well meaning interested in her patients well being and health. So much that she has taken to making and blending her own lolly pops to give to her special patients, which is everyone. R'rraww took an immediate liking to the new ships doctor with her London accent and raven dark hair.
||Noa T'Nessa Levinson|
The Science Officer with a dual heritage and something she wants to suppress.
Ensign Levinson is a Human / Vulcan hybrid who like the cleric in a game of DnD, R'rraww sees her as a resource to be protected at all costs. On their first adventure together they have to face the xenophobic species The People that have no love for mixed races. When they are on board the People's ship the Marine jumps to a conclusion she is in danger, and he stuns one of the people when they move in her direction. Later when the Marine and the Science officer may have been facing death, he inadvertently uses her first name. A cultural faux pas, he regretted but came to terms with.
Engineer with a hidden secret and a fiery wit
Nyka is a witty engineer who's hair has been kissed by fire. The redheaded engineer has been assisting R'rraww with one of his greatest problems in assimilating to Starfleet life and culture. The fact that he as well as other Caitian's have a problem seeing in particular wavelength spectrum. Viewing Holographic "Lifeforms" outside of a holodeck is almost impossible. With Wyss' help and the development of the Cat's Eye, the two young officers could be on the cusp of a breakthrough in information technology.
Marine Division Commanding Officer
The relationship between the two Marine officers started off rocky. R'rraww made a questionable action by stunning one of the People when he felt the Science Officer of their team was under threat. In hopes that he will learn from the Andorian Captain, the junior officer is ready to learn the skills he will one day need to be the kind of officer his people will follow, as they get behind their Marine CO.
||Holy Orders (USS Eagle)|
While testing an experimental new warp drive, the USS Eagle encounters a group of beings unlike anything in the known universe. R'rraww's new ship starts out as a engineering experiment, but becomes a first contact mission. When the USS Eagle finds it's way onto the Alien shrine, the first contact could start an Interdimentional War. R'rraww finds himself with his paw above the fire button, will he have to use it when it's discovered that they have brought something with them from their universe that is destroying the Alien Holy place?
||The Hidden Missionaries (USS Eagle)|
Shortly after an awards ceremony at The Spike, where deadly explosions shake the station, the crew of the USS Eagle is thrown headlong into an investigation. The crew tracks the source of the bombings to Karek Tor, an old Cardassian space station, where Hontrú is caught off guard just affer his first shore leave. He has to face deadly consequences for both himself and the crew of the Eagle.
||No Matter the Cost (Juneau)|
A Comet is bearing down on the civilization of Uiliv-5, but is all as it appears? Sent on his first mission as a Marine of the newly commissioned USS Juneau. Hontrú is paired up with his new Marine CO MCAP Kos Eiris. They are dispatched to the comet to investigate the strange radiation signature that is coming from the iceball with a pilot and science officer as support. What they discover there is more then just a hot ice-teroid. The implications of which could change the balance of power in the Wildes for the future.
