Character Bio:

Personality & Traits:
General Overview
Rayek was a low-level Tal Shiar operative (Major) who though disgraced in the past, in the aftermath of the destruction of the Romulan homeworld was given a second chance to prove his worth to the Romulan Praetor but after a second failed mission has opted to defect to the Federation for the love of a woman, Dr Saqa7 Kahn-Mountain (and possibly save his life).
   
Strengths & Weaknesses:
Telepathic abilities, while rare in most Romulans, is a hereditary trait of his family though only evident if cultivated.  Rayek has been trained via the Tal Shiar, in shielding his thoughts, as well as reading the surface thoughts of others.  In depth ‘melding’ is not something he’s attempted before though he does believe it to be within his capability.

Slightly paranoid – he knows there are those like himself who could be watching his every move. He suspects Tal Shiar retaliation eventually for his defection but as yet no one has come for him.

Fetish for Terran women.
   
Ambitions:
His ambition used to be to rise up in the ranks of Tal Shiar and become someone in power, now he’s just hoping to gain the trust of his new Shadow fleet shipmates while proving himself worthy to the widow, Dr Saqa7 Kahn-Mountain.
       
Hobbies & Interests:
Rayek grew up being groomed for command, and had little in the way of outside hobbies, though he was known to have a fondness for Romulan ale and an absurd fetish for Terran women - Romulan women are often too self-assured and empowered for his tastes.

Personal History:
Rayek is the eldest son of Proconsul Talen, an 'old school' Romulan who has been trying to sway the Senate away from the reforms that the Emperor has been initiating in terms of the Typhon Pact.

Nearing the end of his mandatory military service, he was approached by a Tal Shiar operative (unnamed) and offered a proposition and membership into the Tal Shiar.  Rayek jumped at the opportunity and has worked his way up the Tal Shiar ranks with ruthless cunning.  In 2387, he was given secret audience with the Praetor. Praetor Vaden  (name can be changed to fit Shadowfleet history) spoke to him of an upcoming initiative thought up by the Emperor.  The Praetor offered him a quick way up the ranks, in exchange for his loyalty.  In addition the Praetor had added sway, in the form of blackmail.  It seems that Rayek’s father had been a little too open in his opposition of the Emperors reforms, despite Rayek’s warnings and efforts to cover up his father’s actions.  The Praetor had enough evidence against him and his father to have both tried and sentenced for Treason against the Empire. It was either pledge loyalty to the Praetor and be rewarded or die - easy choice.

After his failed mission aboard the USS Courage (a now disbanded simm/rp group outside of Shadowfleet that I played with for a year before leaving out of loyalty to another player that had big conflicts with the admin), Rayek was disgraced and his rank stripped from him.  He and his father ‘disappeared’ shortly afterwards. In truth, they had been sent to a remote asteroid penal mining colony to work as punishment and were there when disaster struck the homeworld. 

In 2388, after the destruction of the Empire’s homeworld and 90% of its noble families including the Emperor but unsurprisingly not the Praetor, Rayek was recalled from the mining colony and put back into the service of the Tal Shiar.  Rayek was sent on an undercover assignment as a Romulan bodyguard in the guise of a military attaché to the former Romulan Ambassador the United Federation of Planets– Ambassador Kalavak - that had trace familial ties to the former Emperor.   

The former Ambassador, that had been replaced 7 years earlier when the Typhon Pact was initiated, had grown old and somewhat senile in the meantime.  The destruction of Romulus affected the man greatly and Kalavak initiated a plan to seek aid for his people regardless of the edicts of the Typhon Pact.  He became known as the Crying Ambassador.   

The entire traveling embassy consisted of 5 staff - the Ambassador, his aide, his military attaché (Rayek), his cultural attaché, and the travel - financial administrator and secretary to the traveling Embassy.  Rayek’s mission was to keep close watch on the Ambassador, and staff and report any attempts to gain his standing as next Emperor. 

The Embassy roved the Federation and Klingon empires via commercial transport ships seeking trade and aid after the disaster.  In most places they were tolerated, though mostly from pity.  Rayek found the situation very belittling and was tempted on more than one occasion to do the Praetor a favour and kill the Crying Ambassador himself but for some reason Praetor Vaden did not want that and Rayek could ill-afford to fail the Praetor yet again so he stayed his hand.

2391 - The roving embassy arrived on Vestus IV to meet with planetary officials, to seek aid when the ambassador fell mysteriously ill and had to be hospitalized.  Kalavak remained ill for several months doctors on Vestus IV unable to explain or cure the unknown ailment, and Rayek as his bodyguard remained with him.  It was during this time that disaster struck the planet – its’ sun went nova.   (planets name and destruction can be edited to match Shadowfleet history)

When Federation relief efforts arrived, it was Rayek that greased the correct influential hands to get a spot on one of the rescue vessels for himself, the Ambassador and the embassy as a whole. 

(This was to be the start of my simming with USS Vanguard – a 2nd simm group that I tried to play at with this character but after a few short weeks I had to go on rping hiatus for a few years due to marital issues.  During that time the USS Vanguard has disbanded to my knowledge… I am hoping to adapt Rayek’s history so that he can fit in with the Shadowfleet game.)

(Shadowfleet addition..)
2392 - During his time aboard the USS Vanguard, Rayek grew close with the ambassador’s doctor (Lt Saqa7 Kahn-Mountain  -another of my characters on the USS Vanguard – a possible future 2nd character if Shadowfleet fits well with me).   It was at her prompting at the end of their extended mission, following the death of the Ambassador to Pa’nar Syndrome, that Rayek ignored his Tal Shiar orders to return to Rator III and instead offered himself to Shadow fleet as a defector.
2393/94 – Fast tracked through Shadow fleet Technical Services Academy.
2395 – 1st posting to a Shadow fleet vessel

Sample post:

Rayek paced his small sparsely furnished bachelor apartment; an apartment he’d lived in during his placement at Starfleet Technical Services Academy since his defection.  For the past 2 years he’d jumped through every hoop Starfleet had put in front of him to prove himself trustworthy.  Every hoop except the one the Starfleet brass wanted the most - information on the Tal Shiar since the destruction of Romulus. Yet despite his repeated refusal to lay bare those secrets, Rayek swore his new allegiance to the Federation and Star Fleet, all in the hopes of gaining the love of a woman.

Today was the day that he would find out if his time spent jumping through hoops and assurances of loyalty would come to fruition.  Today was the day he would receive his first assignment.

“If you receive one at all,” he reminded himself. These past two years could have all been in vain and if that were the case, Rayek wasn’t sure what other options would be available to him within the Federation where he could prove his worth to Dr. Kahn-Mountain. To Rayek, he would not be a suitable mate for the doctor until he was of comparable Starfleet rank or had considerable civilian authority. Given his particular skill-set, he felt Starfleet offered his best hope.

Rayek’s pacing and concerns were put on hold when his comm unit chimed. An incoming message – this was it.  After a cursory glance about to be sure he was alone, he sat down at the computer, double checked that the electronic locks on his door were still in place, then keyed in his passcode to open the missive.  Dark eyes quickly scanned through the long and carefully written message, pausing at the paragraph that answered his pending question.

After a moment he nodded. “It’ll do for a start.”




Additional information:  Am hoping for Rayek to be positioned on a starship, rather that a starbase.

Mr. tr'Lhovell (do you want the t capitalized?)

A very good application.

I can place you in the Sec/Tac Dept of the Challenger.

Please let me know if that will work.

Sincerely,

And I believe Risannsu nomenclature is similar to Valcan in that it is the  given name that receives the prefix title.  (i.e Mr. Rayek)

Welcome to the fleet!

I'm the Enlisted Persons Course (EPC) instructor. Because you're new here, you are required to pass the EPC to demonstrate your Trek knowledge, RP skills, and understanding of posting requirements. It helps you get familiar with Shadow Fleet style and be eligible for promotions, and gives you something to do until you get active in a game. :) It's pretty simple, you can write what you like for it within the prompts, and work at your own pace, but it's better to do it quickly.

Your Level One EPC starts here:
