Character Background

Personal History Born on the Caitian Homeworld of Cait but relocated early to Starbase 87. Raised by his working mother, aboard the stardock and engineering specialist station.

There was a constant coming and going of different ships and Kedar had an early fascination for their residents and cultures more than their transportation.

Having an insatiable curiosity for learning and experimenting, the young Caitian would often get into trouble for being in people's personal space and in the wrong place at the wrong time.

As an early teen, Kedar and his mother were resituating to a new Starbase closer to Earth in preparation for eventual enlistment into Starfleet and closer to his father who worked there in Engineering.

Aboard the Erewon-class civilian transport ship USS Alhambra, a varied roster of travellers travelled closer to the Sol system.

The transport ship was a fateful disaster that saw the loss of many lives, including both of Kedar's parents in addition to dozens of others. Investigations into the fate of the Alhambra put the incident down to an unfortunate interaction of subspace radiation destabilising the containment field around certain cargo, which in turn allowed for an explosive reaction.

After a brief recovery period and time to grieve, Kedar decided to go ahead with his plans to attend the academy, as it was what his mother would have wanted for him.

Over the first three years, Kedar excelled in classes, filled his schedule with extra curriculars and went for any chance of extra credit. He was determined to spend his final year on a starship and see the stars.
Service Record Kedar is just about to embark on the final year of his academy training, the fourth year of the academy is where most medical students do their medical rotation and he has chosen to do his aboard a starship, the USS Elysium which is designed with academics in mind.
