So’Mior is the child of two Starfleet officers who were longtime friends, finally lovers and mates who both served on the USS Toussaint. He was raised on the ship for the first seven years of his life, until the Toussaint was attacked by Orion Syndicate pirates in 2382, causing significant damage. Lieutenant Sanok was injured in a warp plasma explosion which caused a traumatic brain injury. Shortly afterwards T’Lani moved her mate and child to Vulcan to help Sanok recuperate and raise So’Mior in a peaceful setting.
On Vulcan T’Lani’s father Staron took an interest in training So’Mior in the Vulcan way. The young Vulcan/Human hybrid was placed in challenging science courses – which he did well at – and challenging mental discipline studies – which he did not do well at. While he was never harshly bullied or reprimanded, So’Mior always felt his performance was a disappointment to his grandfather.
After one particularly poor showing at Vulcan mental discipline, So’Mior’s growing telepathic capabilities manifested reaching out to read the thoughts and emotions of his grandfather and teachers. As a complete amateur, he read only the thoughts he expected to read – all the frustration and disappointment with none of the compassionate nuances behind it. He composed himself outwardly, but inwardly panicked and immediately started looking for legitimate ways off Vulcan. He contacted his paternal human Grandfather David Howards, and applied to Starfleet Academy as a fresh secondary graduate of the Vulcan Training institute at the tender age of 18. He was not expecting to be accepted, and yet he was eagerly accepted. He confirmed without telling his Vulcan family and left in a whirlwind.
That was four years ago. So’Mior hasn’t had a long sit-down talk with his Vulcan family since, though he has talked with his mother and father enough to let them know he’s doing well. He believes his grandfather hates him – as much as Vulcans can hate – and is terrified of facing Staron again. Of course So’Mior’s perceptions are youthful and flawed. Staron actually cares deeply about him and wants to see him trained in a way that will help him control his growing emotions so he can succeed – but he doesn’t know that.
In the academy So’Mior performed well. His Vulcan training benefited him and he was an above-average student in most subjects and he excelled in the sciences. With a calm, compassionate and polite personality he was liked well enough without making many close friends. He graduated with honors and was quickly posted to a ship. Maybe it all went a little too quick. On paper So’Mior is a strong new addition to the fleet with a keen intellect and a talent for science. But in reality he’s too young. With his Vulcan genes he hasn’t yet reached the age of maturity and he can sometimes struggles with emotions he doesn’t fully understand or cannot process. He’s a wide-eyed youth on the edge of the frontier, ready to sink or swim.
