Shurimal was born into a family with a long history on Ullia, his mother being descended from aristocracy, back when there was such a thing. He grew up on the family's ancestral estate, Pellamii, with his older brother. They have never got along.
He was never an academically gifted child, but Shurimal sure loved digging through the dirt! It was when, at the tender age of 12, he discovered a holopedia simulation on pre-historic Ullian civilization that he found his foremost passion to this day: he fell in love with both the scientific histories and the myths and legends of the distant past.
Despite being nearly obsessed with the past, he was never a traditionalist, and longed to leave Ullia to explore the galaxy.
His mediocre scholastic performance kept him out of Starfleet on his first two attempts at the age of 18, so he instead applied to work as an archaeologist with the Ullian History Council, eventually earning professional accolades for numerous archaeological finds across the neigbouring sectors of space.
It was when, after seven years at the age 25, he was offered the chance to apply for a permanent position on the History Council's archaeology staff that Shurimal realised he had to make some important choices about his future. Declining the opportunity, he instead took the Starfleet entrance exam one more time, but this time he was accepted!
He spent the duration of his studies at the Academy campus on SB118, majoring in Anthropology and Archaeology.
Shurimal is remarkably curious and persistent and is, in general, methodical and analytical in his thinking. He does, however, strongly trust in his own intuition and will sometimes act contrary to logic if the 'hunch' is strong enough.
