Personality & Traits

General Overview Dr. Jas Alenis Etelen is the beloved child of two members of the Bajoran Resistance. He was raised to be a survivor. He is proud of his homeworld and was raised closely with his devout grandmother, a spiritual leader within the camps, but his not very religious himself. He fits in well in most situations and with most groups both by his easily approachable bearing and his ability to be unnoticeable.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths include strong academic training at Columbia University, NYC, Earth, where he received formal medical training, and informal survival medicine and emergency first aid from his resistance member parents practically from birth. He picks up new skills quickly. He has a chameleon-like ability to fit into new situations which makes him valuable onboard and a prime candidate for Away Missions. He also has a certain command presence that kicks in almost automatically when needed - something he inherits from his parents.

Weaknesses include PTSD from the many losses he has suffered and survivor's guilt. This causes him to sleep less than he would advise for other members of the crew and spend more time at work in the sickbay or in the field. He also craves community but has trouble maintaining relationships leaving some with the impression he prefers to be aloof.
Ambitions "No one dies"
Hobbies & Interests Etelen enjoys a good book, a night at the theatre, the company of interesting individuals, a good workout, exploration. He may also be found sneaking off to the holodeck to enjoy a cigarette (something not many know).

Personal History Shakaar Cashard was a hero of the Bajoran Resistance along with his wife Jas Alenis. When he discovered his wife was with child he hid her away. Jas Etelen was born in 2350 on Occupied Bajor. Jas Alenis and her child were continually moved from safehouse to safehouse.

Shakaar Cashard was killed in the last days of the Cardassian Occupation. He never saw the free Bajor he was working to secure for his son.

Jas Alenis worked with the Bajoran Provisional Government stationed about Deep Space Nine where she raised her son. He grew up alongside other heroes of the Resistance, peers of his mother's, people like Kira Nerys and Ro Laren.

Determined to continue the good work of his parents, Jas Etelen lobbied to be allowed entrance to Starfleet. Determined not to let anyone else die, he studied medicine and became damned good at what he did.

Unfortunately, during his first assignment (trauma surgeon and assistant medical officer) aboard the USS Drexler, a Curry class cruiser, the Drexler met with the Dominion and was destroyed at the Battle of Tyra in 2374.

Etelen was transferred to the USS Shepard as Chief Medical Officer. The Shepard was on patrol in the Sol Sector when the Breen attacked unexpectedly. The Shepard was caught unaware. Etelen was able to survive, escaping with an unconscious XO slung over his shoulder.

Dr Jas Etelen received the received the Starfleet Award of Valor and the Prentares Ribbon of Commendation for defense of Earth (the knowledge of both he keeps quite to himself).

After the destruction of the Shepard he was given extended shore leave on Bajor, time which he spent catching up with friends and family.

Though he enjoyed time with loved ones, he was eager for a new assignment and excited to serve in more peaceful time for the Federation, one in which the spirit of exploration that made the Federation great might be allowed to take greater precedence.
