  • Dislikes: Chaos, untidyness.
  • Temperament: Sovak worked hard to attain the logic and mental discipline expected of him as a Vulcan, though it has never come easy, and he has not reached the disciplined state of his peers. Many non-Vulcans assume because of his heritage and general bearing that he is like other Vulcans, but those who know him see that he feels and expresses emotion. Sometimes this comes out in front of others, and often he will appear nervous about it. He is a surprisingly fierce competitor when it comes to athletic challenges.

    • Mother: T'Nal - A Federation officer killed in the line of duty in 2361.

Sovak was born to Federation officers on a mostly Vulcan ship named for famed Vulcan composer T'Vel. His early years were spent aboard this vessel, which served the inner Federation worlds on diplomatic and scientific matters. T'Nal and Tukol, Sovak's parents, were both killed in action when he was eight years old.

The boy Sovak was sent to live with his mother's brother Taarikh on Vulcan. Life there was very different from what he was used to aboard the T'Vel. He had a tough time adjusting and fitting in with other Vulcan children, and never caught up to their level of mental training. Taarikh sent him away to an intensive and isolated kolinahr school high on Mount Vishlu, but the kolinahr masters were too hard on him, and he never fit in.

Later, Sovak trained in computer systems technology off-world, then entered Starfleet Academy, still searching for a place where his mixed background would fit in. His roommate was Ren Rennyn, a passionate, outgoing Trill who served as a balance for Sovak's awkward and reserved personality.

Sovak and Ren were posted together to their first assignment, the USS Atlantis. There, they engaged in an on-again, off-again romance that was defined by their mutual inability to manage their own strong emotions.

Sovak is a low-ranking OPS officer who is often assigned thankless tasks and routine maintenance below decks. His one away mission aboard Atlantis ended in a vicious mauling by a large purple jungle cat. His one bridge duty shift on Atlantis ended in the ship crashing into a Prometheus Incident rift he failed to detect. Sovak is pleased to remain below decks performing thankless tasks and routine maintenance.

While assigned to USS Columbia, he continued to pursue a relationship with First Officer {n|Rendal|Rennyn}. Sovak decided to embrace his emotions and allow himself to feel them openly, rather than hiding who he really is. At the same time, he refused to turn his back on his Vulcan heritage. Sovak walks a path somewhere between following the ways of kolinahr and following the call of his heart.

When Ren Rennyn took an LOA from Starfleet in 2393, Sovak considered following the Trill again, but instead chose to pursue his own career and accept an assignment to Utopia Planitia Shipyards. He is currently assigned there and no longer in a relationship with {n|Rendal|Rennyn}.
