Savel is about as typical a Vulcan as one may ever come across. He was raised by both of his Vulcan parents who rarely, if ever, deviated from the Vulcan way of life even though they did not live on their species' homeworld. Alpha Centauri had enough of a Vulcan population that Savel did not grow up feeling like he was growing up in the "wrong" place. As such, most of his time was spent with people of the same species until he left Alpha Centauri to attend the Academy. That was his largest exposure to other cultures and peoples, but he never really found a way to settle in during social situations. That's a skill that has eluded him for his whole life. As such, the stoicism and bluntness that come naturally to a Vulcan like Savel have caused issues with certain aspects of life aboard a starship. Mainly when it comes to finding friends or general acquaintances that tolerate him outside of a professional capacity. It's an aspect of himself that he looks to improve on after being encouraged that it would increase his effectiveness as a member of the crew.


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.

Starfleet Career

Graduation and 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.

Drill - 240005.26

The crew of the Artemis had already completed one mission but had spent most of it on solid ground. Commander MacKenzie arranged for the Artemis to undergo a drill involving simulated combat against the USS Berlin in the Paulson Nebula. The Artemis crew was split in two with half staffing their home ship under the command of Commander MacKenzie and the other half being sent to the Berlin under the command of Commander Adea. Savel was assigned to the crew that remained on board the Artemis where he filled the roll of Acting Chief of Security since Lt. Osuna, the current chief, was tasked to the Berlin.



Savel-Father.png Sendet
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-Mother.png T'Raya
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.
