Theran Jos is the slightly spoiled only child of Dr. Arjan Jos, a noted Andorian neurosurgeon.
By Andorian tradition, many of the lower class clans separated families into various 'job' skillsets. The Jos family started out some centuries ago as rural veterinarians, developing surgical skills as technology progressed. When Theran's great-great-great grandfather Aerthan developed a theory using cryotechnology in surgery for a common digestive issue seen in the cave dwelling bovines that fed the clan, his son Mikan expanded and refined the idea, bringing it into the cities and offering it for review from the high clansmen. It cemented the Jos family as surgeons for generations.
Theran grew up on the family homestead for the first 11 years of his life, surrounded by his parents and grandparents (his grandfather also a surgeon) and visited by his aunts and uncles (many of them also doctors). He knew from a very young age he would be a medic, and he excelled at his early studies in the field. When he was 11, his father was offered a prestigious position on Starbase 12, stationed at Risa. They lived in a lovely home on the most relaxing and pleasurable planet in the galaxy, a move which cemented Theran's charmingly arrogant demeanor. He stayed strong in all aspects of his medical training, and was easily accepted into Starfleet Academy.
Theran had a bit of trouble adjusting to the Academy, coming from the relaxed attitude of Risa. Some of his classmates derided him, calling him an 'Andorisian' which he countered with humor and occasionally underhanded threats. He won the respect of his classmates through his medical skills and his ability to find the best party in town at any given moment. While he excelled at medicine and his specialty of neurosurgery, Theran Jos never challenged himself in his general education or leadership classes - which resulted in a highly trained but narrowly focused individual. He specifically requested placement on a Starbase or large medical complex to avoid away team situations and leadership roles.
But living on a Starbase means Theran Jos can't stay in his safe zone forever. Only time will tell how he handles it...
