The Tol Symbiote needed a place to live when it was injured and Anslo was ordered to receive it. Tol was a brilliant tactician and scientist, pivotal to the war effort. Anslo was a respected warrior, decorated and rising in rank but this overshadowed his ambitions. He tried to return to the lines but was forbidden, forced to live the life of a monk, and a slave to Tol. He tried to escape, was caught and they nearly extracted Tol by force, a lethal decision. Tol even agreed it was necessary and Anslo escaped when Tol feigned distress.
Anslo fled for his life, providing service under a false name and working his way out of the Federation. The Vaqbach, on a mission to explore the Delta quadrant, offering Tol a taste of the wilder side of life, and putting distance between him and the men hunting him.
Anslo feels like Tol is a parasite, who has only hurt him and derailed his whole life though. They are not in harmony, and in contrast to how it should be, are two separate personalities. Time will tell if they can achieve balance. For now, the hybridized creature has unique talents and perspectives.
