“I am walking on a tightrope, arms outstretched, like an acrobat with no safety net. Suspended between heaven and earth, winds blowing while I try to keep my balance. Any little mistake, I fly.”

Mira Awad, 21st century Earth singer

Personality

Yogan Yalu's personality is a complex amalgam of personalities–that of his former unjoined self, Yogan Verso; that of Yalu, the symbiont to which he is Joined; and those of the symbiont's previous hosts. Like all Joined Trill, Yogan underwent years of training to ensure that, once Joined, the symbiont would complement, not overwhelm his own personality.

Yogan is an innate idealist, and possesses a nearly inexhaustible optimism. His belief that all people are inherently good occasionally causes conflict in his professional life; he struggles to understand why good people suffer. He dislikes the constraint of arbitrary rules, and tends to support creative thinking and the rights of others to do as they please. He tends to give the benefit of the doubt whenever possible. Yogan struggles to accept challenges and criticisms as opportunities to better himself; rather, he can take them personally and become mired in self-doubt. Yogan wants to be liked, and avoids conflict if he can, preferring to adjust himself rather than risk confrontation with another person.

Since joining, Yogan's symbiont and former hosts have influenced his personality, creating a more extraverted, pragmatic, and social individual, but also one prone to impulsive decisions, cynicism, and a flair for the dramatic. He is proud to have been selected for joining, and he thinks often about how his memories and experiences will influence Yalu's future hosts. He also wonders whether he measures up to his predecessors.

Betazoid psychodramas

Yalu is an enthusiastic fan of a particular genre of Betazoid literature, the psychodrama. He reads them voraciously and is always looking for a new one. Yalu also regularly updates his FedReads profile with the books he is currently reading, has recently completed, or wishes to read in the future:

Personal history

Early life and education (2362–2381)

Baščaršija, Sarajevo, Yogan Verso's birthplace and home from 2362 to 2372
Grodor Regional Municipality, Yogan Verso's home from 2372 to 2381

Yogan Yalu was born Yogan Verso in Sarajevo in 2362, the eldest child of Aydam Verso, an agriculture scientist, and Haned Jurea, an administrator in the Trill Diplomatic Corps. The young family lived in Baščaršija, the old town market sector of Sarajevo, and due to Haned's work with the Trill diplomatic mission on Earth, Aydam was the primary caregiving parent during Verso's young years. Verso was followed in 2365 by another son, Nedal, and in 2370 by a daughter, Kejana. Initially educated at home, he was sent to a local school starting in 2368, where he experienced the first joys and struggles of being the only Trill child in a community of mostly humans. At the local school, Verso was educated in both Federation Standard and the Serbian standardised variety of the Serbo-Croatian language, while his native Trill language was used within the home. These early years instilled in him a curiosity about others who were different than he, but also a sense of self-exceptionalism that would take years to grow out of.

In 2372, a Changeling infiltrator bombed a high-level Romulan–Federation conference in the city of Antwerp, which precipitated a coup d'état attempt against the democratically elected Earth and Federation governments. Although the coup attempt failed, Haned and Aydam decided that Earth was no longer a safe place to raise their young family, and they relocated back to the relative tranquility of the Trill homeworld that year. The family settled in Grodor, a provincial town on the foothills of Bes Manev, where Aydam taught agriculture science at the local technical institute. Haned continued working for the Diplomatic Corps, commuting regularly to the capital and often being away for extended periods. Ten-year-old Verso found it difficult to adjust from the excitement of living in a major urban center on an alien planet to the quiet, pastoral life on the outskirts of Grodor town. Living on Trill did, however, give him his first real introduction to the customs and history of his own people, particularly the practice of joining, which was not discussed openly during the family’s time on Earth. He became fascinated with Trill history and tradition, and with the help and encouragement of one of his secondary school teachers, herself a Joined Trill, he began considering applying to the Initiate Program when he came of age.

In 2373, eleven-year-old Verso visited the spaceport in Leran Manev on a school trip, and became enamoured of the idea of learning to fly. His parents arranged for him to take lessons in small craft navigation, and by the age of 13, he was able to pilot suborbital craft. He continued his flight training during his teenage years, eventually obtaining the equivalent to a Starfleet Level 3 pilot's certification in 2380.

As a student, Verso excelled in the natural sciences, including biology and physics, and possessed average capabilities in mathematics and languages. Although he enjoyed reading as a pastime, the humanities were not of great interest to him academically, in particular the visual arts. In 2381, he completed his compulsory education at the provincial school in Grodor, and was accepted into the University of Chi'tar to continue his education at the tertiary level.

University years (2381–2386)

Chi'tar, where Yogan Verso attended University from 2381 to 2386

Due to his high aptitude scores in the sciences, Verso was encouraged to enroll in the premedical studies program at the University of Chi'tar, to prepare him for a career as a physician. He concurrently pursued a minor in astronavigation against the counsel of his university mentors and advisors. As his studies progressed, the diverging demands of both programs complicated his academic progress, ultimately delaying his graduation by a year.

In 2382, his mother took an early retirement from the Diplomatic Corps. Although the accepted reason was that she became frustrated with the lack of professional advancement–the most senior diplomatic posts in the Corps were unofficially off-limits to unjoined Trill–Haned's retirement also coincided with the beginnings of small-but-noticeable changes in her personality and behaviour. It would not become evident until many years later that Haned was suffering from an early-onset form of dementia, with which she would be formally diagnosed in 2392.

In 2385, as his university studies neared their end, Verso applied to be a candidate for Joining. The Symbiosis Commission's evaluation of his application coincided with sitting his university exit exams, and the two combined to produce the most stressful time of his life to that point. Despite the difficulty of this period, Verso completed his undergraduate education in 2386, graduating with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) and a minor in astronavigation.

Initiate period and Joining (2386–2392)

Verso's plans to continue on to medical school after university were put on hold in 2386, when he was accepted into the Initiate Program and became a candidate for joining. Relocating to the Symbiosis Institute's compound in the Trill capital, his entire life changed virtually overnight. He adapted quickly to the rigours of the program at first, but as he learned more about the lifelong discipline and commitment required of Joined Trill, his doubts grew. In particular, he had reservations about the authoritative role the Commission played in the lives of Joined Trill, and feared that Joining would result in him losing himself.

A transformative moment occurred during his second year in the program, when he spent several weeks with a field docent, a Joined Trill assigned to mentor an Initiate, demonstrate what Joined life is like, and evaluate his suitability for continuation in the program. Verso's field docent, Onesa Javo, was an ascetic and survivalist who lived a simple, solitary life in the harsh environment of the Tenaran Ice Cliffs, and was unlike any Joined Trill je had ever met before. Javo took a special interest in him, giving him both an unvarnished view of the difficulties ahead as well as her unfailing support and encouragement that he possessed what it took to be Joined. It was because of Javo that Verso truly came to understand the host's role in elevating the symbiont to the next level.

With a positive evaluation from his field docent, Verso returned to the compound energized and inspired. Although his final two years as an Initiate challenged him, he persisted, and the Symbiosis Commission approved him for Joining in 2390. Because the number of potential hosts far exceeds the number of symbionts available, he was required to wait to be Joined. Eager not to put his life on hold any further, he applied for and was accepted into a one-year fellowship in critical care and emergency medicine at the university teaching hospital in New Scirapo. This experience reconnected him with his medical training and allowed him the opportunity to reintegrate back into the wider world after four isolating years as an Initiate.

In 2392, the respected politician Eira Yalu unexpectedly died while debating on the floor of the Trill Senate. That same day, the Symbiosis Commission notified Verso that he had been selected to become the next host to her symbiont, and would need to report to the Institute compound and be Joined immediately. After the procedure was complete, Yogan Yalu—tradition dictates that the symbiont's name replaces the host's family name after Joining—returned home to Grodor to recover and adjust to life as a Joined Trill. Returning to his family home after a decade revealed disturbing cracks in the seemingly happy Verso family story, and Yalu did not remain there for long.

Starfleet (2393–present)

Starfleet Academy in San Francisco, where Yogan Yalu attended medical school from 2393 to 2397

The following year, Yalu began applying to medical schools to continue his studies. Although he received acceptance letters from several schools on Trill and other planets, he ultimately decided to attend Starfleet Medical Academy. He had not seriously considered a career in Starfleet previously; his choice was likely influenced by the memories of his sixth host Auzell, a dedicated Starfleet officer who had lost her life in the Dominion War. Attending Starfleet Academy would also reunite Yalu with Earth, the planet where he was born and lived until the age of ten. While excelling in such subjects as medical ethics, diagnosis, and critical care, he struggled with genetics and surgery, earning a "D-plus" in the latter during his second year. As he did during his undergraduate career, Yalu concurrently earned the credits equivalent to a minor in astronavigation while attending the Academy, and he graduated with an M.D. and a Level 5 pilot's certification in 2397.

In June 2397, Yalu completed his cadet cruise aboard the USS Centris-A, and later that month was posted to the USS Atlantis as a medical officer. His time aboard Atlantis was short-lived; in July, he was reassigned to the USS Resolution as a helm officer.

The Symbiosis Commission contacted Yalu in November 2397 to request his return to the Trill homeworld, so that he could complete zhian'tara, a ritual ceremony required of all Joined Trill. A Guardian, Rohjess Beem, followed up on this communication three months later with instructions, rather than a request, to report home for the ritual. Yalu successfully completed zhian'tara in April 2398.

Yalu

Main article: Yalu (symbiont)

Yalu is a symbiont–a sentient vermiform lifeform–who has lived symbiotically inside hosts of the humanoid Trill species. Yalu was born in the Caves of Mak'ala on the Trill homeworld in 2030, and was Joined to a host for the first time in 2140. The joining of Yalu to Yogan Verso in 2392 created a new, unique individual–Yogan Yalu. Yalu's eighth humanoid host, Yogan, carries the memories of Yalu's seven previous hosts, who include a subspace radio operator, a farmer and artisan weaver, a famous actress, and a member of the Trill Senate.

2398

Shore leave (239801.30 – 239802.27)

After Resolution returned safely from the future, the ship made a brief stop at Deep Space 224 to offload some of the refugees rescued from the Sau planet. Most of them, however, had closer connections to the Federation's core worlds, and so remained aboard for the trip to Vulcan. En route, Yalu was contacted by Rohjess Beem, a Trill Guardian, who informed him that it was time to return to undertake zhian'tara, and Yalu began preparations to take the journey at the earliest opportunity. Yalu also took the opportunity for medical and counseling check-ups with Lieutenant Commander Genkos Adea and Lieutenant JG Meidra Sirin, respectively. During these check-ups, Yalu asked invited the officers to participate in his zhian'tara, and both were pleased to accept.

Upon arrival at Vulcan, Yalu held a shuttlecraft training simulation at the Vulcana Regar Orbital Spacedock. Sirin and Ensigns Aine Sherlock and Callium Treetus took part in the training, which simulated landing and evacuation of a crippled spacecraft. Midway through the training, Lieutenant JG Jamie MacNemar modified the simulation, making an impromptu appearance as Queen Arachnia, a fictional antagonist from a 20th century Earth film series. Also at Vulcan, Yalu had the opportunity to meet some new crew members: Ensign Etan Iljor, with whom Yalu was assigned to share quarters; and Ensign Hallia Yellir, whom Yalu helped find suitable accommodations onboard for herself and her pet cat.

The Ties that Bind (239802.28 – 239804.07)

With Fleet Captain Kalianna Nicholotti on medical leave, command of the ship passed to Lieutenant Commander Addison MacKenzie for the duration of the next mission. Resolution was dispatched back into the Borderlands to mediate a dispute between two non-Federation species, the Nascaik and the Thama, who both claimed a planetoid which lie on the border between their respective space. To prepare for the mission, Yalu joined a team comprising Lieutenant Commanders Genkos Adea and Rune Jolara and Ensign Hallia Yellir, to determine what each side hoped to gain from unrestricted access to the planet, Vionus IV.

When the delegates from each government arrived aboard Resolution, Yalu joined Lieutenant Commander Tai Ilsam and Lieutenant JG Aine Sherlock in giving a tour of the ship to the representatives of the Nascaik Defense Coalition, consisting of Rossk Shes Ar-Dev, Terza Malyk Vey-Dex, and Ar-Dev's five-year-old son Foss. The Nascaik, a militaristic and expansionist people, were unimpressed with Resolution and its Starfleet crew, and could not comprehend why scientific exploration and peaceful coexistence were such prized values for Federation societies. With the tour cut short, Yalu returned to the bridge, whereupon newly arrived chief engineer Lieutenant Commander Chandra Amari discovered a series of mysterious power failures. Yalu noticed that the power failures originated in places visited by the Thama delegates during their tour of the ship, and were radiating outward to all parts of the ship. Before any action could be taken to resolve these failures, the Thama diplomatic aide Ashal Koas ended the negotiations in an act of terrorism, blowing up the conference room, kidnapping Ar-Dev, and nearly killing MacKenzie and Lieutenant JG Meidra Sirin, who were present during the explosion.

Resolution pursued Koas' shuttlecraft to Vionus IV, but the damage to her systems and the gaping hole in her hull slowed them down significantly. As the remaining diplomats spoke of their true intentions for the planet, Yalu attempted to distract the Nascaik child Foss with a selection of computer games. He was then called away to join an away team consisting of Adea, Ilsam, and Sherlock, to rescue Ar-Dev and Koas from the planet's surface. The team was successful in rescuing Ar-Dev–with Yalu breaking his ankle in the process–but could not beam Koas back aboard before her explosive device detonated, killing her. Once back aboard, Yalu received treatment for his minor injury while the surviving delegates negotiated a graduated settlement over Vionus IV.

With the document signed and the two delegations departing back for their homeworlds, Resolution limped back to Deep Space 224 for repairs and shore leave.

Shore leave and zhian'tara (239804.08 – 239805.06)

Main article: Zhian'tara of Yogan Yalu

Resolution arrived at Deep Space 224 in need of extensive repairs, which permitted the crew to enjoy an extended period of shore leave. For Yalu, however, his stay on the starbase was brief. The morning after arriving, he and four of his crewmates–Lieutenant Commanders Addison MacKenzie and Genkos Adea, Lieutenant JG Meidra Sirin, and Ensign Etan Iljor–departed for the Trill homeworld, where Yalu would perform zhian'tara, the Trill rite of closure. Yalu's weeklong stay on Trill was an emotional experience, not just because of the ritual, but also because of a long overdue reunion with members of his family.

After completing the ritual, Yalu and his four traveling companions returned to DS224, where they continued their shore leave. As repairs on Resolution neared completion and a new mission loomed on the horizon, the crew gathered in the restored conference room for an awards ceremony, where Yalu received the Peacekeeper Service Ribbon and a promotion to full lieutenant.

Stranded (239805.07 – 239806.15)

Resolution was sent to the Briar Patch to find a Starfleet science ship, USS Hanno, which went missing in the region. Yalu worked with Acting Chief Engineer Lieutenant Commander Chandra Amari to modify the ship's propulsion systems to function in the unpredictable region of space. The two devised a plan to reroute plasma coolant from the warp to the impulse engines, and Yalu had the time of his life crawling around the ship making the modifications.

Upon entering the Briar Patch, Resolution discovered a signal buoy from Hanno, and followed a relatively stable transport corridor to search for signs of them. The ship passed by a rogue planet and was pelted by hundreds of thousands of rocks, seemingly launched from the surface. The assault overwhelmed the ship's systems, and Yalu was forced to bring Resolution down onto the planet. The ship suffered damage from the unplanned landing, but no one was seriously injured, except for Yalu, who fell ill almost immediately after Resolution enters the planet's atmosphere. Barely able to stand upright, he goes to Sickbay, where doctors Genkos Adea and Rion Sladek discovered the balance between host and symbiont has been disrupted. With his isoboramine levels plummeting, and the prescribed treatment becoming less effective with each dose, Yalu became concerned that the symbiont might need to be removed to save it, although this would kill the host.

After setting out to explore the surface, an away team located survivors from Hanno and from a Romulan ship that had crashed. They also discovered the native inhabitants of the planet, a sentient, non-corporeal race called the Skarn, exist in a symbiotic way with the the planet and an entity within it called Baab, which provided a possible explanation for Yalu's sudden illness. The crew then raced against time to repair the ship, get back into orbit, and leave the Briar Patch with the survivors.

Shore leave (239806.16 – Present)

Upon returning to orbit with the Hanno and Romulan survivors aboard, Resolution set course out of the Briar Patch and back to Deep Space 224 for repairs and shore leave. En route, Yalu have Meidra Sirin a flight lesson, and shared a bottle of sapphire wine with Genkos Adea, enjoying pleasant friendly conversation during both. With Resolution undergoing repairs, Yalu joined a team consisting of Kalianna Nicholotti, Addison MacKenzie, Rune Jolara, Meidra Sirin, Aine Sherlock, Hallia Yellir, and new tactical officer Arek Ketteik, on a humanitarian project to resettle the Romulan survivors from the Briar Patch.

Traveling aboard the USS Gemini, the team set course for Oreen V, the site of an existing Romulan settlement, playing a friendly game of poker on the way. After a brief welcome by Janain, the settlement's leader, Yalu, Nicholotti, Jolara, Ketteik, and Yellir set themselves to the task of constructing a new dwelling, while MacKenzie, Sirin, and Sherlock assisted in upgrading the medical clinic.

Aydam Verso
Father Born in 2328. He was born in the agricultural region surrounding Grodor town, and received an education in agricultural science. Much of his early work involved improving the efficiency of soil reclamators to increase the area of arable land in inhospitable climates. He married Haned Jurea in 2355 and relocated with her to Earth the following year. After Yogan was born, Aydam was the primary caregiving parent. The more things change

Haned Jurea
Mother Born in 2327. She was born in the most cosmopolitan city on the Trill homeworld, Leran Manev, and studied political science at university. She had a long career in the Trill Diplomatic Corps, reaching the rank of senior administrator and serving at the diplomatic mission on Earth from 2356 to 2373, and at the headquarters on the Trill homeworld thereafter. She took an early retirement from the Corps in 2382, after which she began exhibiting changes in her behavior and personality. She and Aydam separated in 2390, and divorced in 2392. Later that year, Haned was diagnosed with a degenerative neurological condition, the main symptom of which is dementia. As of 2398, she experiences brief periods of lucidity but is generally unable to care for herself. Memories raw and ragged

Nedal Verso
Brother Born in 2365. Nedal is an artistic soul. He is an immensely talented poet and spoken word artist who was beginning to get the attention of cultural movers and shakers on the Trill homeworld. In 2396, seemingly out of nowhere, Nedal decided to end his poetry career and become a Guardian, the monastic community of unjoined Trill who devote their lives to caring for the symbionts. Yogan unsuccessfully tried to talk Nedal out of it, which damaged their relationship. As of mid-2398, Nedal completed his Guardian apprenticeship, but left Trill to study writing at the Pennington School on Earth. Yogan affectionately calls Nedal 'Neddo,' which Nedal hates.
