Detailed Bio

Jarris is a Vulcan, who's fascination with Humans drove to join Starfleet. His penchant for the human word-play called "puns" and the effects such turn-of-phrase seemingly has on those around him inspired him to become a counselor, in an effort to bring logic through seemingly illogical means.

Personal History

  • 236005.01: A fire aboard a shuttlecraft en route to a Federation starbase inflicted severe burns on his left leg, leaving it scarred and stiff if not exercised regularly. A Starfleet medical officer saved Jarris' life while distracting him with "jokes."
  • 237203.14: At just 16 years of age, Jarris completes his primary education, and moves to Gol to work as an apprentice under Ch'Tok studying non-verbal communications until coming of age for application to the Vulcan Science Academy. This work was formative, as it cemented the idea that there factors in communicating with other species that may seem illogical at times, but open up venues of discourse far more efficiently than traditional diplomacy.
  • 237806.28: Ch'Tok declares Jarris' apprenticeship ended and recommends him to the Vulcan Science Academy for immediate admittance. The Academy extended the offer, which Jarris accepted. He focused his studies on communications, diplomacy, linguistics, and xeno-sociology.
  • 238911.29: During his final excursion of his VSA xeno-linguistics studies, Jarris was partnered with an ... intriguing human by the name of Patrick O'Shannassy (a Terran merchant who's connection with the VSA was never made clear to Jarris). This human male seemed to talk nearly as frequently as he exhaled. Many of his ramblings were peppered with word play or turns-of-phrase that he found quite diverting. Though none of this seemed to serve any logical purpose, Jarris noted a propensity shown by others in the expedition to "open up" to O'Shannassy more readily than to others on the team. This phenomenon perplexed, intrigued, and inspired Jarris to pursue this practice of using "puns" in the course of normal conversation.
  • 239207.10: Jarris applied to and was accepted into Starfleet Academy with a major in Medicine, but changed his major to Counseling, when he discovered his fascination for word-play and the effect this sometimes illogical linguistic convolution had on those around him could be put to practical use.
