Salak was born in Raal province on Vulcan on January 8th, 2359 to his parents; Vorak and T'Plar. Their first child, he spent the early years of his life on his homeworld. When Salak was five, his fathers promotion meant that the household swapped the warm deserts of Vulcan for the cold icy moon of Andoria, where his sister T'Pel was born two years later.
As a young man, Salak was still unsure where his future lay. His father tried to talk him into applying to the Vulcan Science Academy, and although the idea was appealing to him, it was a desire to explore which led to him applying for Starfleet. Although his mother was supportive of Salaks choices, Vorak was strongly opposed to his son being in Starfleet, in part due to the Dominion War which was reaching a conclusion as Salak began to put his application together.
Salak has a typical Vulcan family although the nature of their environments have impacted each persons personality. Vorak is a traditionalist, whilst T'Plar is a more caring, typically motherly figure who does suppress her emotions but not to the extent that most Vulcans would. T'Pel is yet to really grasp logic and has little control over emotions, partially due to an upbringing on Andor away from any Vulcans with the exception of her family.
