Aarad was brought up in a single parent family on Betazed from the first moment he can remember. He lived with his father and older sister. They had an incredibly close family dynamic.
Aarad is compassionate and kind by nature. It takes a lot to make him dislike someone. He's an optimist. He prefers being in a small group of people over a larger crowd due to having difficulty reigning in his empathic abilities (despite having easily mastered control over the telepathic skills).
