Other Family Some aunts, uncles and assorted cousions
Relationships With Family His relationship with his parents in the past was strained because of his straying from the path they desired for him. Additionally, he lost his moral footing for a time and got mixed up with the wrong people. He is now back on the right path. While his parents are still not 100% sold on Starfleet and there is still disagreement on their pacifist attitude, things are much better than they once were.

He’s always gotten on well enough with his siblings, but they were never super close because his career path and personal choices were much different than their own.

Personality Traits

What Are They Like When Alone? While he would prefer not to be alone, when finds himself in that position, he is introspective and thoughtful
What Are They Like in a Group? Tayran is comfortable enough in social settings, especially one on one, but he is hardly a social butterfly. He will seldom initiate a conversation unless it’s required of him, but once engaged he can become quite amiable and animated.

What Are They Like Under Stress? He is generally calm under pressure under stress, or when he finds himself in a dangerous situation. But he does have a temper and it can sometimes be goaded into making a poor decision(like jumping into the fray instead of walking away).
One Thing They Are Good At He’s an excellent pilot, with great intuitive skills.
One Thing They Are Bad At He barely meets the minimal requirements for phaser training and you wouldn’t want him manning the tactical station on board ship.

One Thing They Need Everyone to Know About Them That despite his past, he is no longer a badboy and has a strong moral compass.

One Thing They Never Want Known About Them What went on during his eight months in captivity(He was tortured, lost an eye, and was raped)

Worst Habit He is overconfident. He doesn’t come off as a typical cocky pilot, however. Instead, he tends to be a risk-taker who will understate the risk.

Worst Fear Claustrophobia
Worst Vice While he is working on it, his impatience sometimes he will voice his opinion even when it’s not asked for.
Hobbies and Interests He loves going rock climbing, the more challenging the better. He enjoys any sport that emphasizes good hand-eye coordination over brute strength including ravdi which is a game played on his homeworld that closely resembles the Terran game of lacrosse. Other interests include Bonsai and reading
Personal Goals He would like to pilot the next newest, fastest ship. Like many Starfleet officers, he would like to have his own command, preferably a frigate or some other small, fast, maneuverable ship. Personally, he would like to find his Prince Charming.
Why Do They Work For/With Starfleet? He got in over his head as a smuggler and when he realized it was weapons not medical supplies he was smuggling he turned state's evidence and as part of the plea he joined Starfleet.

Personal Timeline

What Do They Remember Most About Their Birthplace/Childhood? Rigel Kentaurus is a hard-scrabble planet that his parents were helping to terraform.
Life Event(s): Childhood Tayran was born on Rigel Kentaurus on Sept 2, 2234, to Eli and Joann Wayne His father is a climatologist, his mother a botanist. They were part of a Federation team of scientists who were terraforming the planet.

He was reading by the time he was five and had a strong interest in astronomy, it looked as if he would follow in his parents and siblings footsteps and become a scientist or engineer like them.

At age eight, his best friend Ryan’s father gave him his first ride on a shuttlepod letting him sit in the pilot’s seat and “fly” the ship. He was hooked at that point and knew in his eight-year-old mind that he would become an astronomer that could pilot himself around.

Life Event(s): Adolescence At age twelve he started to pester his parents for taking official piloting lessons. They did not allow that, but he started to take unofficial lessons from Ryan’s father. He began to question both his parents’ pacifism and his dream of being an astronomer.

He came out to his parents as gay at the age of fourteen.and was accepted for who he was

Two significant events took place when he was fifteen. His parents allowed him to start taking official lessons, and he got his first boyfriend Jacob Longmyer the son of an engineer who was also part of the Federation team. Jacob had a well-deserved reputation of a badboy that made poor decisions and ran with the wrong crowd.

His parents disapproved of the relationship both because of the boys' ages(Jacob was three years older and Tayran was too young)and Jacob’s reputation. That along with Tayran’s now open questioning of their pacifism and his formal rejection of his plans to pursue astronomy was the beginning of an estrangement from his parents.

At age seventeen he got his pilot’s license He and Jacob were now joined at the hip and were inseparable, or so Tayran thought, but Jacob’s badboy persona went beyond his bad decisions and poor choice of friends. Tayran was not the only guy he was seeing.

He talked Tayran into joining a group of smugglers as their pilot. The biracial teen was hooked because of his love for Jacob and the promise of a source of gold-pressed latinum The estrangement from his parents grew.

Tayran was told the group was smuggling medical supplies and didn’t question Jacob or anyone or dig too deep. After almost two years he found out that Jacob was cheating on him and that the group was actually smuggling stolen photon torpedos and phaser emitters.

Both revelations were devastating to him and he did the only thing he could think of doing, he went back to his parents for advice. Even though they were not particularly fond of Starfleet, who they felt were becoming too militaristic, encouraged him to go to them.
Life Event(s): Adulthood He did and turned himself in, turning state’s evidence. As part of the deal, he joined Starfleet and entered the Academy.

His piloting skills were impeccable and his underlying natural talent was outstanding. As he graduated to bigger ships his skills continued to excel. Though he did spend a lot of time in the simulator to help hone his talents.

He was otherwise a rather pedestrian student, in the middle of this class. Stung by Jacob’s betrayal he acted out by hooking up with as many guys as he could during his tenure.

He left the Academy with a reputation of a crackerjack helmsman who was something of a risk-taker and given his past role as a smuggler an affinity for one-night stands and a not so occasional speaking his mind when he was invited to do so as a badboy.

Four months into the war a shuttlepod he was piloting was destroyed by the Klingons and he and the rest of the crew aboard were captured. He spent the next eight months as a prisoner of war.

The experience, which he has only discussed with counselors, did change him, giving him a darker edge. It didn’t break him, however, and it only slightly diminished his risk-taking.
