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, 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 grew 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. 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. He wanted to serve, but his rebellious and attention craving spirit, joined with his laziness, almost made him drop out. He managed 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, and to make it back" was the motto he created for himself. He also enjoyed a good fight, and is an expert in Military History, which made him choose for a Tactical career.
He graduated 13th of his class and was stationed on Starbase 118, where he rose to rank from Ensign to Lieutenant, and became also the station’s Chief Tactical Officer. It was there that he had a relationship with a former Academy college, Thera M’Gia. They eventually broke up, but from their union was born Vitor’s only child, Jonathan Silveira M’Gia. Being half human, half Andorian, Jonathan is constantly monitored, and on more than one occasion Vitor had to take parental leaves to join him in Andoria. Vitor moved from Starbase 118 when the Excalibur-A was launched and remained there until he was reass igned to Columbia, with the same function. Of note his last mission ended up with him being court martialed, after disobeying orders and he was demoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade. On board the Columbia Vitor continued his service, eventually reaching his highest rank as a Lieutenant Commander, until he was injured in an encounter with an unknown alien. He suffered a mental attack that rendered him comatose for almost three years. After he regained consciousness, and was deemed fit for duty he returned to Starbase 118, but had to leave abruptly when his son had another medical crysis. After Jonathan recovered he took the time to fully recover himself, applying for a return to active Starfleet duty.
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.
