|Growing up in a non-Starfleet family was hard for this man. All through his childhood, he had to keep the fact of his dreams a secret. He dared not tell his family nor his friends a word of what he wanted to become. So thus he had to put on a mask for the world. He was, to them, the perfect little worker.
He maintained a B average throughout his schooling. His education took upon the reflection of what his parents and family wanted, a construction worker. So after graduation, he got his chance. He moved away to San Fransisco, Earth to join Starfleet. All the while his parents thought he had gotten a job doing construction with an important firm.
Having to lie to his parents got easier for a short while but when he graduated from the academy, he had to tell them the truth. On the week of graduation, he called them. The look on their faces was the last thing he will remember of them. They terminated transmission and it was at that point he understood, they disowned him as a son.
This just gave the young Caitian more motivation to succeed. He spent the next 5 years working at the academy working on furthering his education. At that point, he requested to get a position on a starship. Three months after that request he had been granted a position as Cheif of Science on Deep Space 13 or he could take a job working on Mira working as a diplomats adviser. He thought about it for a long time and decided the way to go was going to Deep Space 13.
He was en route via the USS Constriction, an Excelsior refit Class, within three hours of accepting the position. During the time aboard the ship, he learned what he could about the starship and its capabilities noting to himself that it would be an interesting adventure being aboard. Even in the future, perhaps, it would be a good change for him. S’tarkks then spent the next seven years aboard Deep Space 13. In those seven years, he received extensive training in Hazmat training for dangerous environments. It was that training that caught the attention of the Pioneer.

This larger than life Caitian stands slumped over due to his rather large height. His thick fur a light brown and blonde color covers his body in wave patterns. His paws are rather large for a Caitian his size but that does not mean they are not skilled. His eyes, green in color, are diamond shaped and stare at you curiously
