Personality & Traits

General Overview Tobias is an untrusting man. He is a nice guy to all people who is willing to help others, but he is afraid to trust people now. A betrayer in the Dominion War set him up, and the Jem’Hadar captured him. He is naturally calm, and that calm is almost unshakeable, but he explodes at seeing others tortured or hurt. Tobias is deathly afraid of doctors after all the experimentation he underwent at his prison camp, and refuses to take hyposprays now for fear of what happens to him while he is unconscious.
Strengths & Weaknesses Tobias has a keen intellect for battle. He is very good at finding the weak points on the enemy ships in battle. He follows orders well, but he sometimes follows the objective of the order in his own way that tends to go against what the CO wanted.

Since the end of the Dominion War, Tobias has had a hard time readjusting to normal life. He has trouble forming relationships with people because he lived in a very primal environment during his captivity. He gives off a calm, friendly manner, but has trouble connecting with people.
Ambitions Tobias hopes to someday receive a Trill symbiont, as well as become a command officer someday.
Hobbies & Interests Tobias likes to sleep on the ground in a bed made from nature. He is an environmentalist and enjoys away mission to the surface of planets. He likes to spend time with the few friends he has, and will protect them with his own life. He also likes to go camping and enjoys the outdoors. He loves nature and one can often find him in a forest environment in the holodeck.

Tobias hates doctors with a passion. He will fight people trying to take him to Sickbay. He hates Cardassians, Breen, and all others who joined the Dominion in the war

Personal History

Personal History Tobias was born on Trill on April 9, 2351 to his parents Torias and Ezra Nigan. When he was born, he had an older brother of three years named Odan. His parents were teachers who worked in the local schooling district, and they raised their two sons lovingly.

Tobias and Odan both joined the Trill Initiate Program when they were old enough, but Odan left early due to physical incompatibility with the symbionts. Tobias, however, excelled in the program. He focused on engineering during his studies, becoming a well-known technician at the local spaceport. The Symbiosis Commission eventually approved him for joining a year into his first assignment with Starfleet.

When he joined the Academy, he originally focused on engineering courses, but he felt a strong pull towards the security and tactical departments and transferred. He never stopped taking engineering courses, and has an engineering level high enough to work in either engineering or operations if the situation calls for it. He graduated from the Academy at the top if his tactical class, noted by his teachers for his intuitive grasp of strategy.

Tobias served aboard the USS Spitfire at the start of the Dominion War, and quickly became the chief tactical officer after the first one died in an early skirmish. The Spitfire’s commanding officer grew to rely on Tobias in tight situations to get the ship out of fire. However, the Jem’Hadar captured Tobias during an away mission to bring aid to a colony.

They took him to Prison Camp 564 in Cardassian space, where he would remain for 14 months. While there, the Dominion experimented on him to learn more about the Trill nervous system. They performed horrendous operations on his spinal cord, and caused massive towards the end of his captivity. The Jem’Hadar continually beat him, as they forced him into combat tournaments as part of Jem’Hadar training.

Tobias spent over two years at Starfleet Medical after Starfleet forces liberated his camp near the end of the Dominion War. Doctors spent months repairing the physical damage done to him, and he spent the first year in intense psychiatric care. Eventually, he made a full recovery and retuned to his normal self. He returned to Starfleet and became the chief tactical officer aboard the USS Washington.

After a rough year readjusting to starship life, Tobias became a valued member of the Washington crew. Starfleet then transferred him to Starbase 97 in 2380. In 2385, he transferred to the USS Churchill.

The Trill Symbiosis Commission disapproved him for joining after he retuned from captivity to review him and ensure that he would not cause damage to a symbiont. After many years, they reapproved him for joining in 2384, and he is next in line to receive a symbiont.
