His mother is an expert As aliens on Federation-Cardassian relations and helped to negotiate the peace treaty between Human colony largely populated by peoples from Manchuria, Tahlin’s family was adopted into the Union Bordered Blue Banner and as such Tahlin speaks Manchu and the FederationChakhar Mongolian as his first languages. His father was a diplomat but he has been manyOther than his birth on Maravel, many other things during Tahl's lifetime. His his early childhood is largely undocumented (or at least not unrecorded in his Starfleet profile) but according to him it was very loving and happy. Tahl's file before his parents were part of the Federation relief mission assigned to Cardassia Prime in mid 2376 in the wake aftermath of the Dominion War as part of the occupation and this is where Tahl spent reconstruction forces. It was here that Tahlin would spend the rest of his life from ages 7 childhood, coming to 18 consider Cardassia ‘home’ for him and considers it to be more or less "home"by the time he joined Starfleet he would become a dual citizen of the Cardassian Union and the United Federation of Planets.
Starfleet was not Growing up, Tahlin mixed in elite social and political circles befitting his parents’ assignment and would become familiar with nearly everyone important in the new post-war Cardassian government and still counts their children as among his closest friends. As an obvious choice for Tahl alien and neither was physics but when Tahl attended lectures at a symbol of the Central University Federation occupation of Cardassia he found himself drawn , Tahlin was sometimes made to the higher problems and theories of physics. Previously considering himself not at all science or math orientedfeel unwelcome but his youth, Tahl pursued coupled with his interests from a more literary perspective people’s unique ability to ‘listen’ and specialized assimilate comfortably into other cultures eventually made him in Astronomymany ways just as Cardassian as his peers. He However, Tahlin attended a Federation-style school that was accepted to Starfleet Academy fashionable among the elite of the next year new democratic government so his indoctrination and ‘Cardassianization’ are woefully incomplete by Cardassian standards and began a six year course in most would only recognize him as El-Aurian with Cardassian trappings. He has an integrated dual bachelors immense appreciation for their arts and masters degree program literature and his sense of duty is closer to what one might expect of a Cardassian instead of a child of career diplomats in Physics the foreign service. While his childhood was a tug between Federation and Cardassian civilizations, Tahlin did grow up with some uniquely El-Aurian cultural touchstones like the Philosophy of Sciencefamous El-Aurian fencing/martial art Tworin and collects his people's poetry.
Starfleet was not an obvious choice for Tahlin. Upon his graduation from preparatory school the only viable path on Cardassia for him was the Central University, where he began attending some lectures as a high school student. Initially not considering himself a math or science oriented person, the lectures and professors at the Central University changed his mind towards the sciences and encouraged his exploration of theory and gathering of scientific knowledge while tutoring him in the more ‘hard’, mathematics based portions. It was only on the advice of the wife of one of his mother’s colleagues whose son Tahlin had grown up with, that he applied to Starfleet Academy to study Astrophysics and the Philosophy and History of Science. To his surprise Tahlin was admitted and to the surprise of all he accepted the offer to join Starfleet, leaving the politics of Cardassia for the rigorous training Starfleet Academy had in store for him.
