Rhys was born in 2371, on a small island of Anglesey just off the coast of Wales. Rhys was a bright but quiet boy, who delighted in growing up amongst the rivers and valleys of his native land. He had a fascination for myths, legends, and history and was fond of reading books on those subjects. He also had a great love for swimming and practically anything involving the water.

He would continually go over work again and again trying to get it perfect. Other cadets dreaded working with him. His quiet, reserved nature was often confused with arrogance and aloofness. He excellent in his science training. He majored in biochemistry with a minor in xenolinguistics. He became a certified medic while at the Academy. He graduated salutatorian of his class with certifications in biology, biochemistry, communications, diplomacy, general science, and paramedicine.
