Temerant (host) is a 29-year-old Initiate who has earned his rank of Lieutenant in the Starfleet Corps of Engineers.

He graduated from Starfleet Academy with honors, and received his Engineering credentials with commendations from his instructors.

He has served on several Starfleet ships and starbases, before receiving word of his acceptance as an Initiate. He took a leave of absence to complete the Initiate training, and finally received the Bast symbiont after the previous host, Wilem, was critically injured in a rock climbing accident.

A specialist in structural integrity and power systems, he is also well-rounded, and possesses a solid base in every field of Engineering. After joining, the expertise gained from his previous hosts’ lives, combined with his Engineering credentials, allowed him to apply for a position in Operations.

The Bast symbiont is fairly young, by Trill standards. First joined to Lamorra Bast, a classical musician. Lamorra was a strong performer, playing in the Mak’alan Orchestra, as a featured soloist. Her specialty was the Trill piano, though she also mastered the harp, lute, and flute. She performed at several official events, such as diplomatic receptions. From her, the Bast symbiont inherited patience, a good ear for music, and learned to be very methodical and to always invest in practice.

Lamorra’s consort was an unjoined Trill male, a visual artist famous for his impressionistic landscapes and portrayals of everyday life on Trill. She was the mother of two children. She died of respiratory failure at the age of 92, surrounded by her family and friends.

The Bast symbiont went to Wilem Bast, a Trill scientist, who specialized in particle physics. Wilem was called upon to help with the war effort during the Dominion War, specifically in countering the Breen weaponry that could penetrate Federation shields. He was granted access to special research material, and studied Thalaron radiation from documents received by the Romulan delegation.

Wilem Bast’s consort was an unjoined Trill female, with whom he had two children. She was a university professor, specializing in linguistics. From Wilem, the Bast symbiont inherited a love for the sciences, a love for rock climbing, swimming and running, and the importance of being thorough in any research, and rigorous. Wilem Bast was also a teacher at Ma’kala University on Trill. He also loved cooking, which is a trait that he passed on to the Bast symbiont.
