Personal History

Personal History As a veteran of the Dominion war and having grown up as part of the Bajoran resistance, Talan was toughened to the ways of war. His Father was executed as part of a routine roundup of civillians after a Resistance attack and as a result he and his brother joined the Resistance at a young age.

Talan was involved in numerous actions, mostly in a scouting role but he was introduced to the realities of conflict at an early age and became hardened to them. His technical aptitude for bomb making and surveillance were first found form here.

He however welcomed the arrival of the federation after the occupation and joined the scientific team researching the cleanup of Bajor. It was here he met his wife and married. He was one of the first Bajorans to join Star Fleet as a result of his work there and it was during this time he was trained at Star Fleet Academy.

Personnel Data

Starfleet Records

Service Record With the advent of the Dominion war and his Graduation, Talan returned to Bajor prior to the attack on DS9 aboard a federation war ship. He was engaged with Dominon forces when he was gravely injured and beamed to Bajor for treatment - as a consequence he was trapped on planet after the invasion.

He returned to his role as a resistance fighter, but here the enemy was even more ruthless, leading to the death of his first son during a reprisal attack. It was during this time that he turned to the Prophets for guidance more than ever, but it also marked a time in which he was the most passionate proponent of violence.

After the dominion war, he took an oath to avoid bloodshed but retained his position in star fleet.
