Human Engineer and fellow department Chief. The two of them both took their final exam together at the Academy. During the exam, Toryn's actions resulted in a scenario where the away team Dermont was on, was nearly 'killed'. As a result, he views he owes a debt to the much older Lieutenant. They have served on Atlantis now for a year and counting and are best friends. The curmudgeonly engineer is known to be quite fiercely protective of Toryn, especially when it comes to the women in his life who have broken his heart.
Half Human, half Romulan fellow security/tactical officer as well as his Assistant Chief. Toryn has long had feelings for Serala, even prior to ever having met Lael Rosek. Toryn has since made his love for her known, sadly it came far too late as their mutual affections for one another only came out after she had asked hi to walk her down the aisle at her wedding. Toryn considers her his only other best friend. And struggles with being hers, as well as her professional equal and not causing her any more undue heartache than he has. Even though, she is the second woman to have broken his own heart. The best of friends, Toryn is the Godfather to her daughter, T'Saara. Though, he is uncomfortable around children under the age of 10, he is humbled by the honor.
Now, the First Officer on the USS Montreal she had first contacted Toryn randomly over subspace when serving as Chief Engineer on the USS Veritas. Instantly they had a connection, her being half Human, half Al-Leyan. Toryn feel in love with Lael hard and has since frequently professed as such to her. While she also loves him, their vastly differing cultural upbringings have proven too much for Lael to handle and she has since broken off their relationship as well as his heart. They share a strangely unique psionic connection. Enabling them each to visit one another psychically in a psionic realm they both refer to as the Dreamscape. At present, Toryn has no clue why they are linked having never mated, and only met in person once. Despite the heartache, he loves her deeply and will always consider her a dear friend.
Upon her transfer to the USS Atlantis Toryn and her had a confrontation, verbal, though later on the holodeck they ended up coming to blows and venting a bit of their frustrations. Tensions between them have eased significantly and their friendship seems to have been maintained with the absence of any lingering romantic spark.
A recent addition to the USS Atlantis Doctor Journs is the first Al-Leyan that Toryn has served in Starfleet with and is only the second to serve on board the Atlantis since her relaunch in 2394. Ishka is also one of the few rare Al-Leyan's who possesses psionic abilities. In a short time Toryn and Ishka have grown close and after having endured several shared experiences on the ship, he has fallen in love with her. She is the complete and sole love of his life and a source of comfort and stability as he deals with the after effects of his lengthy torture and captivity at the hands of the Consortium. Ishka and Toryn have since moved into shared quarters and quite happy.
Toryn was born in the southern polar region of Leya-l. A small mountainous expanse, Sez Toural. Unlike most of the rest of Leya-l, the polar regions were vastly colder climes. As a result, those that call the southern pole home tend to have fairer skin than those of their more northerly kin. As with all Al-Leyan children, upon birth he was taken into the custody of the Haemachuo caregivers and didn't not see his family until well after his tenth birthday. Toryn was set to have a bright future, as far as his early caregiver was concerned. The young lad showed an interest in other cultures and Astronomy early on. Nearing his tenth year, the caregivers, through the delicate and precise educational regimens placed upon him to that point had determined that he would best serve society in the Operations Prote (Branch). Upon being given this assigned class for the rest of his life he felt the strange and conflicting doubt. The stars called to him, as did the curiosity of other cultures. So much so that he became rebellious, 'confused' and voiced his desire to join the Science Prote. After months of being unable to sway his obviously troubled mind Toryn was sent to the Sez Toural Rehabilitation Center for treatment. Three weeks later the once conflicted boy came out with a new and vibrant excitement for the Operations Prote. After much deliberation and lengthy conversations with his blood family, whom he was now allowed to see for the first time, he settled on the Security Prote-Se. There was something about serving to protect others that appealed to him even before his 'rehabilitation'. Coincidentally it was during this time that his telepathic and empathic abilities were measured and put in his record. Classified as a T2/E0+.
Toryn fell into his studies quickly, seeking to become as proficient as he could in his Prote-se. Unlike many Al-Leyan children, he began to connect a deeper bond with his blood family than most. Though, not as strong as the bonds he'd made with his Haemachuo siblings, he came to be quite close with them all. Though, at least two of his blood sisters had long since joined Starfleet before he'd even knew of them. His father, Ket Talso was a first officer in the Al-Leyan military serving aboard a Ziela 7Ds Mark X Bird of Prey, the Rokuro.
During his free periods he would venture with his barely older blood sister for recreational scaling of the various towering mountains that surrounded his home.
In 2386, through his studious pursuit of his Prote-se he was granted a special internship to serve aboard the Rokuro as a member of her security team. The dispensation lasted for a year, until Toryn's continued run ins and flirtations with a human female serving at the Federation embassy on Leya-l caused him to be forcibly sent back to the Rehabilitation Center for so grievously falling from the branch he spent over seven months there before being released, now cured of his affliction in 2388.
Having been one of the rare cases of an Al-Leyan needing to undergo a second rehabilitation his application to Starfleet Academy was nearly not permitted to be sent. During a rather poignant meeting with the ruling council of Sez Toural, he pleaded with them to permit him to join Starfleet. Citing his educational merits, experience aboard the Rokuro and a passionate assurance that, because he had been adjusted twice now in his life he was no longer at risk of falling from the branch anymore.
The next few weeks were agonizing and he spent most of it in isolation out in the mountains he loved so much. Each and every crevice, cliff face, contour of wind eroded peak served to provide him solace.
Upon his return home, he was greeted by a bubbly Kiitiarel who was more than eager to give him the news that his application had not only been submitted, but he'd been accepted.
Toryn was overjoyed and with an almost zealous determination he resolved himself to push himself to excel. Before the young Al-Leyan ever set foot on Earth, he had decided to attempt a double major. Embracing his Prote, by pushing himself to complete both the Tactical and Security Prote-se.
The next five years would prove to be the hardest of his life, he met every challenge. Made a few moderately close relationships with fellow classmates and despite being surrounded by so many varying cultures he had not shown any sign of relapse.
2388 Accepted into Starfleet Academy. San Francisco, Earth.
During his second year, 2390, he and a few of his classmates became embroiled in a heated argument with upperclassmen that resulted in a rather chaotic brawl in one of the common areas. Toryn and four of his friends against six third and fourth year cadets. Despite his attempts to diffuse the situation from escalating, several punches were thrown along with a few cadets by Toryn himself. Both friend and in this case, foe alike he did everything he could to keep them off of one another. A selfless act which resulted in the Al-Leyan having to spend a few days in the infirmary for allowing himself to take the brunt of the blows himself. From both sides. He received both a disciplinary reprimand for his involvement and commendation for attempting to safeguard all parties to the detriment of himself.
2391 Earns the right to observe and participant in three weeks of Starfleet Marine Officer training. The ordeal gave him a new respect for those serving in that particular Prote-sede. (secondary sub branch)
