Vitor is the only child of Carlos and Jane. His parents are traders and an odd couple that complete each other. Carlos is an adventurous man, with a big heart and careless at times from Portuguese origins. Jane was born in space, from parents of ancient English origin and has a sharp mind, careful personality and as the Ferengi say "lobes for business". Being an only child Vitor was pampered by both of them, and even more by his paternal grandparents, with whom he spent most of the time. From them he learned and grow passionate of History, and his Portuguese heritage. His maternal grandparents also went their way to spoil him and so he ended up being a stubborn, lazy, self centered and attention craving kid. It was from this mix of rural living on Earth, and the more cosmopolitan life of Risa that molded Vitor's character.
He ended up going to the Academy against all his family wishes. He wanted to serve, but his rebellious and attention craving spirit, joined with his laziness, almost made him drop out. He manage to stay due to his bright mind and the realization that some work was needed. He also learned that the spirit of Starfleet had much in common with what he perceived to be his ancestral roots.
"To boldly go where so many have gone before" was the motto he adopted for himself. He also enjoyed a good fight, and is an expert in Military History, which made him chose for a Tactical career.
Vitor has a sharp mind and his only weak point is math.
He was an average student mostly due to his laziness. If he worked a bit harder his scores were above average. This was reflected also in those subjects he enjoyed. He was brilliant in History.
His mother's side of the family is from ancient english origin, mostly from London. His maternal grandparents, Jennifer and Robert Stone, are currently living in Risa. They were also born in "space". Robert in the Mars colony and Jennifer aboard the trade freighter Rosarium. Before they retire they worked as traders and travelled all around the Federation.
His father's side of the family are from Portugal, on the south east end of Europe. His grandfather, Jonas, was a teacher and is still an historian with some published works, mainly about portuguese and european history. He could trace the Silveira family tree back to the early 19th century. His grandmother, Luisa is a retired teacher also but of physics. The country farm, on which Vitor spent most of his hollidays, become their permanent residence after they retired from teaching.

Thera: Vitor meet Thera at the Academy. They were a pair of misfits that helped each other and bonded in such way that they began to call and treat each other as brother and sister. However Vitor began to realize he was feeling something more then just brotherly love for Thera. But although he is outspoken in excess, when it come to this important matter he got afraid and only a few days before graduation he talked to her. It turned out she always loved him as well, but that late revelation by Vitor overwhelmed her. She suffered quietly for all those years and the realization he also felt that way about her opened the wounds she thought close. Although she sent him away and they did not spoke for a while they talked at the 118 party after the Klingon invasion. Thera was assigned there when the Victory was away and after meeting him again they slowly got involved. Their relationship blossomed and to their surprise Thera was preagnant. Being an Andorian Shen she needed a Zhen to help bring it to term. She called on her cousin Thalla. This situation gave way to some difficulties in her relation with Vitor. Feeling overwhelmed and not wanting to burden or force Vitor into a family life, she wasn’t sure he was up to, Thera left him and Starfleet going back to Andoria. The child was born healthy and was named Jonathan Silveira M’Gia.
Thalla: Is Thera’s cousin and the Zhen that carried Jonathan trough the final stages. She and Vitor never got a close relationship, although they were friendly to one another there wasn’t any kind of attraction, and she sometimes felt she was standing between them. But she made due with her own doubts as she saw Thera questioning her relation and worrying about the pregnancy. She followed Thera when she left the Excalibur.
Captain Nicholotti: Vitor "attached" himself to the then Commander soon after he arrived. There was something in her, even if she was nearly burned out of exhaustion, that inspired confidence and what can be called as a commanding presence. Vitor began to grew fonder of his CO and was the first to literally jump and clapped when she was promoted. Although he regards all of the officers and crew mattes he meet at SB118 like family Captain Nicholotti is still the one he regards highest of them all. They become friends and up until the very last time they meet. In the hope to settle the situation Vitor was taken and confined to Sickbay. He regrets that their final words were an argument, but even more the fact that it was his plan that she followed and that it was her, not him to go inside the “Nothing”. Vitor misses her and although, in time, he may find the kind of relation he had with another CO, Kali will still be “The Captain”.
Doc Johanna: The good Doctor is one of the first officers Vitor meet at the station. She was nice and welcome him in her warm way with that scottish accent Vitor always finds funny. But they bonded and got closer as the 118 party was dying down. Johanna surprised Vitor when he was singing alone in the karaoke and joined him. They shared a song and a few words and Vitor knew he got a closer friend in the good Doc. She was injured in Agurtha and Vitor lost track of her.
Ben: Vitor and Ben nearly started at the same times in the 118, Ben arrived first by a few days. Vitor considers him his closest friend, a friendship that grew steadily over the time they spent together. For Vitor, he and Ben are the “Young Guard”, the new officers from Ops in contrast to Brek and Katy, the only remaining members of the “Old Guard”.
Brek: After Vitor escorted the then Commander Nicholotti the first person to gave Vitor any task was Brek. They slowly build up a friendship meeting between mission. Brek even presented her grandmother Ara to Vitor.
Katy: The last member of the “Old Guard”. Katy is the remaining member of the 118 crew Vitor began to serve with. Vitor considers her a friend even if they don’t see eye to eye some of the times.
Toys and stuff
Vitor has in his quarters his "Toy box". It's a wooden box big enough to carry the following:

A portuguese traditional wooden mace.
A butterfly knife and a switchblade.
Two books. "The Art of War" and "Os Lusíadas"
A wooden pipe, with all the needed tools to clean it and light it. Two small pouches of tobacco.

The Mask of Sanity-
Vitor arrived at SB 118 during what become known as the "Shadow Crisis". He "attached" himself to Commander Nicholotti since she looked too warned out. They went together with the "future Orman" to find some solution to the problem.
When they returned to sickbay Lieutenant Brek asked for Vitor's help. He asked him to talk and serve as escort to one of the survivors of the Calgary, Ensign Freo, a young Bajoran woman. Vitor talked to her and escorted her to the temple, even if he did lost himself along the way, and back to sickbay. Acording to Lieutenant Brek his interaction with Ensign Freo helped her deal with the Shadows.
A Matter of Honor-
The next morning Vitor made his proper presentation and firstly reported in to Lieutenant Orman. While there they were summoned for the arrival of three High Rank Officer's, including the former Captain of Starbase 118, Andrus Jaxx. There he meet Commander Cody who "recruited" him to help out in the preparations for the banquet. He instructed Vitor to set up a distillery to get some drinks for the evening. After finishing it he went to get his proper quarters. There he meet Stacy Eiden. He sensed something strange about the girl he couldn't quite get his finger on, but he carried on dropping his stuff in his new home and then going back to help the Commander in the kitchen.
The dinnner went well, and Vitor was the first to "congratulate" the now Captain Nicholotti in his own special way. In the next morning Vitor started work day by visiting Commander Breeman and finding Livingston there he shared his ideas to improve the stations shields and weapons. After that he visited sickbay to get his physical exam and meet the newly arrival Lieutenant Daniels. They went togheter to the briefing about the Klingon invasion on Thracia.
Besides the situation itself, another thing got Vitor's attention. The threat to Captain's life. With Daniels sugestion they offered themselves as "bodygards" to the Captain and has Daniels took the "first shift" Vitor traveled down to the Science labs were he found Commander MacKenna in a tipical "Silveira style" encounter.
After that he thought to follow his hunch and take a better look at Stacy. Vitor aproached her and followed her home. There he was ordered to back away by Commander Orman. Not very hapy at being ditched in his own "investigation" Vitor got himself into the Victory after he realized he lost half his shift following his hunch. He decided to board the Victory. It was there that he got the news the Captain was attacked and Lieutenant Daniels was hurt. Feeling a bit down he talked to the Captain and shared a meal with Marine Chief Jones before getting some rest.
The next morning did not start so well as Vitor confronted an unknown Ensign that was working togheter with Livingston. Cleared by the XO that "Ensign" was later revealed to be Fleet Captain Mar. In the briefing the Captain gave their orders and destinantion and the Victory launched followed by Captain's Mar ship the Achilles.
Traveling to Thracian space the Victory found an emissary from the Thracian Governement and redirected course. After the randevouz with the Apolo the Victory confronted the Klingon forces. They ended up being renegades, not santioned by the Klingon Empire, and led by Krax who has personal reasons to get Captain Nicholotti.
After trying to lure the Federation vessels into firing Krax manage to detonate his torpedos in the space bubble created by his warp jump. The shockwave hit the Victory even if the Apolo moved in front of it. Vitor just stumbled on the bridge and afterwards he managed to fix a problem on one of the aft torpedo tubes. As he was going back to the bridge he meet the Captain's "twin" Anya when he passed by the Chief Tactical office. He returned to the bridge, now under Commander's Walker command to his post until finishing his shift.
After docking Vitor began working on something for the party. Since his engineering skills are a bit to be desired he took some time to get it ready and he arrived after the party started. But before he could "set up shop" Sergeant Marquelle asked for his help. Being the usual good samaritan he helped her out, and convinced Lieutenant Benton to deal with his scars and face the crowd. They helped him set up his surprise. A karaoke machine, and he got the partiers attention when he made his own version of an earth classic music called "Kung-Fu Fighting". But he was in for some surprises as well. The Captain promoted him to Lieutenant Junior Grade and he found out someone very special to him was assigned to the 118 when they were out on the Victory.
Meeting Thera in the party was a special moment. They still have feelings for each other and Thera told him thing's would go at her own pace. After they parted Vitor stayed a bit longer and returned to the Karaoke for one last song. He was surprised by Doc MacLaren and the two ended up singing together. The next morning would have further surprises for Vitor.
The Odyssey Project-
In the staff meeting the discussion was around Anya, the twin clone the Captain and Commander Cody "created". There were also some reorganization of staff and Vitor was assigned as Chief Tactical Officer. Going on to his new office he took the time to familiarize himself with his new duties. He planned and implemented an overall sensor upgrade. Later that day Thera visited him and they shared their first kiss. On the next morning she joined him early in his office to gave him a surprise. It was then that the alarm sounded and they both rushed to the Hub only to find Commander Cody disappearing in front of them. Worried about the sensor upgrade Vitor relaxed when they found out that both Commander Cody and Anya were taken by a far powerful species. If this was related or not with the incidents on the Azure Nebula, were several ships were being literally ripped to shreds, it was something they would found out.
Boarding the USS Columbia the crew departed destined to the location of the attacks and following the hint of the gravity well that would lead them to Odissey station, were it was suspected Commander Cody and Anya were taken. Vitor was on bridge duty when they arrived, and moments later the Columbia was attacked by 4 large dragon-like creatures. Tearing their way trough the ship they attacked the crew. One of them made their way to the bridge, there Vitor faced the creature, which was still an infant and therefore still able to reason. Further communication with, the now called Puncdor, allowed the crew to understand better the creatures. As they manage to fend off most of them Vitor noticed, upon returning to his station, that Commander Walker beamed himself out of the ship with one of the "dragons".
Vitor saw his message and beamed him back inside. With things quieting down the Captain gave Vitor command of the Columbia in the brief hour before the staff meeting to figure out their next move. There Vitor was one of those that suggested the "Plan B", taking a runabout instead of the damaged Columbia. After the meeting and in the shuttle bay Vitor and Thera had their first "lovers quarrel". She volunteered for the mission to the Captain and Vitor reacted poorly. But inside the Captain cut some him some slack and as they departed Vitor feel to sleep due to the tiredness. As they travelled trough Odyssey station he had a strange dream and he wake up just as they arrived.
They were greeted by a Greeter and had to work their way around the station to find Anya and Commander Cody. As they were close Commander Walker began planning on a way to quickly beam them back and Vitor helped him in a more destructive plan. One that implied the use of sonic waves to shatter the crystals used by the Greeters. That was not needed since they recovered Anya and Commander Cody and made an uneventful return.
Cash on Delivery-
Things looked like they were easing down, and a day off was given. Vitor finished his work and meet Breks grandmother Ara. It was there they received the information a new XO was on the Station. And that they were having a beach party that night. Curious they both went to the Hub to greet the new arrival and has they parted ways Vitor called on Thera to make their own preparations for the party. They mingled and had a good time at the party, and Vitor and Thera finished the night together in Vitor's place with his left over Sangria in one passionate night.
The next day their after party activities had it's price, but for Vitor it was much easier since he was Chief Tactical Officer, Thera on the other hand was stationed on the docking rings, and she was the one that managed Security to the newly arrived freighter Astrolabe.
The freighter was held up by duck tape and goose hope, and sure enough it was on a tight schedule to deliver a much needed medicine to the Romulan worlds affected by the Plague. It suffered an explosion and doing an after inspection on the ship both Vitor and Captain Walker were hurt. Unaware to them a Romulan fleet surrounded the Station. While Vitor was evacuated to Sickbay Thera had to deal with the Freighters crew and Captain. After the threat of mutiny Mimgar, the Astrolabe Captain, took Thera hostage, and in the issuing fight, that knocked him out, she was hurt. With the help of Counselor Rose she went to Sickbay.
Vitor "rescued" Captain Walker from Sickbay and they returned to the Hub to help deal with the Romulans. Vitor was however not fit to stay and returned to Sickbay. There, thank's to Doc Johanna he was joined with Thera and they spent the next hours together before Vitor was cleared to return for duty. With the revelation of Captain Mimgar's plans and a more diplomatic approach towards the Romulans, the decision was to render aid and depart for the infected Romulan planets was taken.
Vitor voiced his concerns over that, and was surprised to know Captain Walker agreed with him. They ended up getting closer after Vitor pushed Walker's buttons to further learn the reasons behind Walker's hate of Romulans. But to make matters worse Walker's half sister was on one of the infected planets.
After that and while pre launch arrangements were being made Vitor learned of the arrival of Thalla, Thera's cousin, and that he was going to be a father. The recent changes were not the last surprise. In the morning the orders came trough that all senior staff was moving from Ops to a new ship.
- 239003.08 - Assigned to USS Excalibur-A
Vitor was the one that "broke" the center seat of the Excalibur. He had the bridge for the entire travel time to Agurtha only relinquishing command when they set up on orbit.
He stood on the Bridge helping Commander Breeman and Captain Walker provide cover for the away team. While most of the action was on the planets surface back on the ship they were working on finding out not only the reasons for the plague, but also from he several anomalies they were detecting. As Captain Walker made a diplomatic overture with Agurtha's Tal Shiar it was revealed that the plague and Romulan politics weren't the only thing threatening Agurtha. An Iconian gateway was found and Ben and Kieron beamed down to join the away team.
Vitor kept an eye on the planet and on the fleet as things unfolded but like those on the Bridge he was tricked by Captain Walker, who beamed down leaving behind his resignation from Starfleet. As the events on the planet unfolded and the away team returned Vitor asked Captain Nicholotti for permission to track down Captain Walker, which was denied, although he made one final attempt that was dismissed by her.
The return to Ops was a sad one with Captain Walker gone. In one attempt to rise the crew's spirits and welcome the newly arrived Ensigns the Captain asked Vitor to prepare something involving the newly arrived officers. As always he took it one step closer and distributed tasks to all the crew, that ended up in one of the most memorable parties in Ops. But unknowingly to Vitor, Thera divided by fear and doubt chose to leave him.
He only found out before the party, but he put on his brave mask and kept going as if there was nothing, announcing out loud his return to the world of single man. The next day he began devoting himself to his work and started planning for a project he would suggest Captain Nicholotti.
