Arys is the younger one of Tuomas’ and Sileah’s two children and grew up in the northern part of Europe. Due to her father’s profession - a geneticist specialized in helping couples of two or more different species to conceive - she spent her childhood and early teenage years exposed to different species and cultures and rejected her Bajoran heritage.
Her mother, a former member of the Bajoran Resistance, did not approve. She all but forced the participation in prayer and Bajoran holidays, something her husband did not agree with, and something Arys hated with a passion. After the end of the Dominion War, Sileah insisted on moving her family to Bajor in order to familiarize her son and daughter more with the Bajoran culture. While Aaron quickly made new friends and would later say that he felt ‘complete’ when exploring his people’s history and faith, Arys felt caged and unhappy.
When her mother and father split, she returned to Earth with her father, decided to follow in his footsteps, and studied medicine as soon as she had finished college.
Arys worked as a doctor under her fathers' tutorage, specializing in obstetrics and gynecology. She was by no means the best in her field but benefitted a lot from her father’s name and reputation. Even after leaving the medical field, she prefers to go by her first name, rather than her full name. Arys quickly identified an interest in psychology and counseling, but she didn’t act on it until later in her career when she decided to apply to Starfleet Academy, which she concluded after five years with a Major in Counselling. The delay was caused by a sudden and inexplicable interest to take additional courses in Cardassian Art and Literature, which she still reads and collects as a hobby.
Arys is in regular contact with her father, her grandfather, and her own therapist. She preferably spends her free on a holodeck or at the bar with a select few friends. When none of this is possible, she dedicates her time to writing her own book titled ‘It's usually the mother's fault’.
Arys' Family is divided into what she refers to as the Bajorans and the Humans. While Arys is in frequent contact with her father and grandfather, she rarely speaks to her mother and older brother.
Trovek Sileah (mother)
Follow the Prophets, my daughter. They cannot lead you astray.
- Trovek Sileah
Sileah grew up on Bajor, and to this day prides herself in having been part of the Bajoran Resistance during the last decade of the Cardassian occupation. After sustaining a severe injury only a few years before Cardassia's official withdrawal from Bajor, Sileah was forced to flee in order to seek medical treatment. It was there that she met Doctor Tuomas Ihalainen, who had decided to dedicate a portion of his time and skills to help the Bajorans in the various refugee camps. When Sileah got married to Tuomas she insisted that he took her name, and treasured her traditions even when they decided to settle down on Earth rather than returning to Bajor. A year later, Sileah gave birth to her son Aaron. Another two years later, Arys was born.
The older her children grew, the more desperate Sileah was to raise them as Bajoran as possible - an effort Aaron appreciated a lot more than Arys did. Not having learned how to resolve conflict by other means than force, Sileah decided to move their family to Bajor. That this uprooted her husband's career did not matter to her, and the move to Bajor marked the beginning of the end of their relationship. When Tuomas and Sileah split, Sileah and Aaron remained on Bajor.
Sileah is co-leading a Bajoran sect with her son Aaron and is known to enforce full devotion from their followers. While the Bajoran government has not a stop to the activities of the sect, they are certainly being watched closely.
Tuomas Ihalainen (father)
Bad things happen, but you have to move past it. Leave it behind. The sooner, the better.
- Tuomas Ihalainen
Tuomas lost his mother early in his life and spent his youth traveling with his father, a diplomat. Once he decided to join Starfleet, his career was nothing less than stellar and exemplary - he studied medicine, graduated top of his class, and served on different vessels for several years before agreeing to a temporary placement in one of the refugee camps. It was there that he met Trova Sileah, and fell in love with her almost instantly. He managed to persuade her to move to his home in Finland with him, where the young couple enjoyed the support of Tuomas' father, who had settled down by that time. When Sileah was pregnant with Aaron, Tuomas found himself particularly stressed by even minor complications and potential genetic incompatibilities. Because of that, he decided to specialize in genetics and began his career dedicated to helping couples of two or more different species to conceive healthy children.
Tuomas found himself spending most of his time with Arys, who seemed more interested in medicine and his tales of travel than the Bajoran traditions of her mother. However, when Sileah demanded that they move to Bajor, he closed his practice and agreed. While on Bajor he continued his work, researching Bajoran and Cardassian genetics in particular. When he and Sileah decided to split, Arys begged her father to take her with him. He agreed eventually and returned to Earth.
Tuomas was more than delighted to tutor his daughter as she began studying medicine, even if her chosen field surprised him. After working in the same medical facility for a few years, Arys informed him of her wish to join Starfleet. He was supportive if surprised, and to this day keeps a close eye on her career.
Trovek Aaron (brother)
Doubt your doubts before you doubt your betters.
- Trovek Aaron
Aaron is Arys older brother. Due to sickness, he is not able to remember much of his early childhood. What he does remember is his mother praying to the prophets during this time, and he often joined her. Aaron developed an early love for the Bajoran culture and religion, and when his family moved to Bajor he took to the new environment like a fish to water. Instead of education after College, he dedicated his time to philosophy and theology, and new interpretations of ancient scrolls. He joined the Ohalavaru until his own following grew and he split from them, maintaining his own religious sect ever since.
Aaron rarely speaks to his sister, even if he believes it to be her destiny to return to Bajor as part of the prophecy that he believes has given him the status of a religious leader.
