Savel tries to convey the stoic and calm nature that most Vulcans try to show. Though, the Vulcan Ensign is still young, and there is much for him to learn about what it truly means to be in control of one's emotions. Sometimes, it is hard to suppress a desire to let them free in certain moments. Specifically, he has had issues suppressing feelings of pride and anger in certain situations. Sometimes those two can go hand-in-hand with one another. Savel is sure that logic, maturity over time, and the discipline required of him by Starfleet will all assist in conquering that challenge.
Savel was born in a Federation colony in the Alpha Centauri system. Both of his parents were already members of Starfleet but in different capacities. His father, Sendet, was an Engineer, and his mother T'Raya, was a science officer. Each contributed to their colony and the Federation in their way. That encouraged Savel to find a way to do so as well. However, growing up in a small colony did not allow his ambitions to travel too far.
That began to change whenever his father was transferred to a different posting on a Federation Starbase. His mother also found a research position there, so the family moved together. The Starbase was mainly used for refitting and repairs of starships, which gave Savel another view of what a career in Starfleet could provide him. However, when his school group was allowed to tour a starship undergoing a refit at the Starbase, he decided how he wanted to serve. Of course, they did not get to see every inch of the ship since they were just students and work was being done, but the glimpses he got created a desire to join a starship.
Savel's focus then shifted to preparing for Starfleet Academy. First, he had to ensure he was qualified enough to enter and ready to pass the entrance exam. Thankfully his Vulcan parents had already pushed for him to do well academically. With the combined motivation from his parents and the potential of serving on a starship, Savel was eventually accepted into Starfleet Academy. He reported to the closest campus, where he spent four years. Savel graduated from Starfleet Academy as part of the Class of 2400. After graduation, he was assigned to the USS Artemis-A as one of its security officers as his first official posting.
Arrival on USS Artemis-A - 240004.04
Upon Savel's graduation from Starfleet Academy, Starfleet commissioned him as an Ensign before being assigned to the USS Artemis-A as a Security Officer. The Vulcan joined the crew as they were deep into their mission of assisting the Da'al after a meteor impacted their homeworld. His introduction to some of the crew's senior staff was less conventional than most. He met the ship's First Officer, Genkos Adea, while the Betazoid XO was restrained on a biobed following an attack on the ship's Chief Tactical Officer, Vitor Silveria. After an incredibly quick briefing on the current state of affairs, he was introduced to two other department chiefs before his first away mission. Savel met with Lt. Gabriel Osuna, Chief Security Officer, and Lt. Talos Dakora, the ship's Chief Intelligence Officer, along with Ensign Flint Kader, just prior to beaming down to the surface of the Da'al homeworld to recover a shuttlecraft and two missing security ensigns. Their mission was ultimately a success, thanks to the actions of Lt. Hallia Yellir's team, comprised of Ensigns Hiro Jones, Jovenan, and Luxa Lorana, that were able to pacify all of the planet's inhabitants, which allowed for the safe departure of the recovered shuttle and security officers.
Shore Leave on Meranuge IV - 240004.26
Following a successful mission on the Da'al homeworld, the USS Artemis remained in orbit to assist with relief and recovery efforts while also allowing some of her crew some downtime in the system. While a group of the junior officers on board were eating in the mess hall, Ensign Jovenan pitched her idea of how they should spend their leave period. She suggested to Ensigns Savel, Flint Kader, and Luxa Lorana (aka the Lower Decks Gang) that they should go on a camping trip in a region of the planet known as La'kso Canyon. The group agreed to join Jovenan but were initially unaware that this trip had actually been a secret intelligence-gathering operation on a group of Da'al that had potentially been behind the disaster that struck their planet. That fact didn't become clear to the three ensigns invited until they had been ambushed by two Da'als while hiking through the canyon. The pair initially tried to appear as friendly park rangers but quickly turned on the group, attempting to hold them hostage. Lorana attacked the lead Da'al, ending up severely wounded in the process, and opened up a window of opportunity for Savel and Flint to subdue the two Da'al while Jovenan went to help Lorana. Almost as soon as the engagement ended, the cavalry arrived to assist. Commander Genkos Adea, Lieutenant Talos Dakora, and Lieutenant Gabriel Osuna, along with a sizeable security force, arrived in a runabout. They immediately swarmed the area, with Dakora and Adea helping save Lorana from her injuries while Osuna helped secure the area with Savel. After Lorana was recovered and on her way back to the ship, a sweep of the canyon was conducted, and a hidden hanger was discovered. Inside the hanger, the team found a Da'al shuttle believed to have been used to direct the meteor that had struck Maranuge IV. Once the evidence was collected, everyone returned to the Artemis for debriefing and to prepare for their next assignment.
|To anyone unfamiliar with Vulcan culture, Savel's relationship with his father may seem more professional than personal. Even though he is not as close with his father as he is with his mother, the two still exchange messages or call one another as often as time permits.|
|Savel and T'Raya have always been close, by Vulcan standards, and they still keep in touch with each other regularly today. It was her service as a Starfleet Officer that ultimately inspired Savel to do the same.|
Chief Security Officer
|Gabriel is Savel's immediate superior on the Artemis and has already made a strong impression. Gabriel has been open in welcoming Savel into the department and has introduced him to the human game of basketball.|
|Savel's introduction to Commander Adea was in the Artemis sickbay after the XO had to be restrained after being influenced by a foreign substance. The commander quickly made up for that impression by personally leading a rescue team when Savel and other officers were being attacked.|
Helm Officer/Academy Classmate
|Savel was accompanied by Flint during some final training simulations in the Academy before they were both assigned to the Artemis on the same day. The two have shared every mission since then.|
|During a camping trip/secret mission during shore leave, Lorana charged headfirst into danger to protect Savel and the rest of their group despite the danger, resulting in severe injuries. Savel is unsure whether to be mindful or appreciative of this bravery and potential recklessness in the future.|
