Sharl was born in 2362 in the small seaside town of Largran. His parents ran a small resort located on the beach. Sharl spent in youth playing on the golden sands and swimming in the deep blue waters of the Tarlin sea. In the evenings Sharl would often wander down to the town center were musicians would often gather to play music. There met Tarl Op’Ba’Fin who would end up teaching him to play the rallan flute.
The resort has several small sailboats that at one time had been available for the use of the resort guest but his father had discontinued the service due to maintenance costs of the old boats. Sharl managed to persuade his father to let him fix one up and once he had made the thing sea worthe he even managed to teach himself to sail. Sharl had hoped that he could convince his father to startup the boat rentals again but he failed to convince him.
Two weeks after his twelfth birthday Sharl’s father announced that it was time for him to get a job. His father further announced that Sharl was to report to the nearby marina the next morning for his first day on the job. Sharl was understandably surprised but soon found that His father would not hear any objections. So in this way Sharl found himself employed as a general laborer at the marinea tasked with assiting Brata G’Ha’ta with maintaining the boats docked at the marina. He kept this job for two years until the marina owner was found to be a front for a Ferengi weapons merchant who was using the marina as a credit washing operation. The owner was sent to a penal colony and the marina came under new management who let the old staff go and brought in a new staff.
Newly unemployed at the age of fourteen he found himself working at his parents resort. It was during this time that Sharl meet a group of starfleet officers who were on shore leave. They were staying at the resort and would tell Sharl stories of where they had been and what they and done there.

A year later he boarded a transport to Earth to star the next stage of his life.
