Jadaris was born in a Federation hospital on Cestus III, where his parents worked as mining engineers. The only member of his family born in the Federation, Jadaris grew up first with his parents, then as a foster child of his parents' associates when his parents had to leave the planet. Being that he never had Gorn citizenship, he wasn't able to accompany his family back home. Jadaris grew up with a Caitian family that his parents had worked with, and they raised him with their son R'Kaar Ragarri. With the loss of his parents, Jadaris looked to K'Taar in times of uncertainty, and also wanted to follow in his footsteps in the geological field. Jadaris's parents introduced him to a number of Federation customs, and to the colony's baseball games. When he was eight, he joined the junior baseball team and rapidly made his way up as a pitcher along with his foster brother, R'Kaar, who was playing catcher. Within a year, he was playing with the Cestus Comets, and managed to make MVP that same year. About two years later, he joined the mining company on the planet as a geologic surveyor to exploit the uranium resources found in the area. During a routine mine survey though, Jadaris was buried in a cave collapse along with his team. He spent two days in that mine before the rescue crews managed to get to him. Due to the uranium deposits in the area, Jadaris had contracted radiation poisoning, which necessitated him temporarily leaving Cestus III for treatment on the U.S.S Resource, a Miranda-class starship that was assisting with the rescue efforts. Jadaris was fascinated by the equipment around him when he got used to it being around him, and he learned as much as he could about the technology.
When he left the ship several days later for home, he was encouraged by the mining company to go off and find something else to do, other than mining. However, Jadaris liked his current profession, so a year later, when he became of age, he applied for the Vulcan Science Academy and was accepted in the field of geophysics. R'Kaar however, did not leave with him, instead, he stayed on Cestus III with his family, although R'Kaar and Jadaris kept in subspace contact with each other from time to time. K'Taar gave Jadaris his blessing before he left, and told him that he was proud of him, but that the future was his own, and to call on him if he needed assistance. Along the way, he decided that his inflexibility would lead to problems, and took up the field of gravimetrics as a result. With gravitational interactions being somewhat unpredictable out in the field, Jadaris figured that the experience would help him with his stubborness, and allow him to be a much more flexible officer in the future.
While he was deciding what classes at the Science Academy he was wanting to take, Jadaris met one of the doctors who had treated him for radiation poisoning and had a chat with him. Despite being a geophysicist, Jadaris decided that minoring in medicine would help reduce injuries in the field, and so decided to partially enter that field of study, with a focus on radiology. Given his first-hand experience with radiation, learning that sub-field of medicine would be much easier, given that it was easier to learn what he had experienced. Jadaris spent a few years, primarily learning the science of geology and geophysics, as well as the other sciences from the Vulcans. After several years of hard work, and a thesis on locating Class-M planetary uranium deposits utilizing magnetotelluric techniques, Jadaris got his equivalent of a Master's degree before he considered applying to the Star Fleet Academy. Jadaris needed a sponsor in the Federation, and he found one in his adviser, Satelk Komorvar.
Jadaris requested his adviser to sponsor him, and after a lengthy discussion about either going for his doctorate and possible teaching position in the Science Academy, or join Star Fleet Academy and get the same, but not immediately gain a teaching position. After a few days of deliberation, Jadaris decided that he would do more good in Star Fleet than on Vulcan. He reasoned that if he were to apply the knowledge, he could teach at the Academy much more effectively when and if he retired. Satelk accepted his choice, and wrote the letter of sponsorship that Jadaris needed to gain entrance into the Academy.The first of many trials for him to join the Academy was over, but more difficult ones lay just ahead for him.
When Jadaris took the entrance exam, he failed the first test due to lack of speed, and then the second exam he failed due to his fears of being trapped under a collapsed roof. He passed the third time though, having coped with his fears, and was accepted into Star Fleet Academy as a cadet, but before he was able to enter the Academy, another issue came up. The issue of citizenship came up, and Jadaris had to argue that he was a citizen, by virtue of being born in Federation territory, and with the lack of Gorn citizenship, the Federation was where he was legally born into. Jadaris provided evidence that he was born in a Federation medical facility on Cestus III, and cleared up the issue by also presenting his record with the Science Academy, and a personal letter from his sponsor alongside the record from the Vulcan Science Academy. Though he also joined the Academy's baseball team, he placed his studies before his sports; a little something he picked up from his time among the Vulcans.

Short-Term Goals: Becoming a First Officer
Long-Term Goals: Retiring to a Vulcan Science Academy or Star Fleet Academy position as a geological sciences professor
Personality: Outgoing to those he trusts or works with. To others, reserved and professional until he gets to know them.
Sense of Humor: The slightest joke will draw a chuckle from him. He has a very good sense of humour with his colleagues, and occasionally will crack a science joke himself. With others who are not familiar to him, he does not joke, and maintains a professional manner until he gets to know them.
Phobias: Mild Claustrophobia, becomes severe while in Jeffries Tubes and other extremely tight spaces
Likes: Well-defined geological formations, Vulcan cuisine, and baseball
Dislikes: Irregular changes, poor sportsmanship, extreme violence
Pet Peeves or Gripes: Impulsive scientists or officers
Bad Habits or Vices: Picks at chin scales when nervous, occasionally forgets to wear shoes on duty
Achievements: MVP for Cestus III baseball league, proving that he was a federation citizen by reason of his birth in UFP territory, writing his thesis on Class-M planetary uranium vein prediction.
Disappointments: Failing the Academy entrance exam twice, not being able to gain dual citizenship in Gorn Confederacy
Illnesses: Torn muscles during younger baseball years, radiation poisoning before Vulcan Science Academy
Strengths: Memorizational abilities and data analysis
Weaknesses: Combat with energy weapons and utilizing new tools
Fears: Getting forced back to Cestus III because of a technicality, ceilings falling on top of him
Prejudices: Non-military scientists not affiliated with Star Fleet, the Vulcan Science Academy, or the Daystrom Institute
Off Duty Clothing Tastes: Vests and shorts, bare feet
Distinguishing Features: A tattoo of the Cestus III baseball team Cestus Comets on his left shoulder
Pets: Earth Iguana (Name: Ssrath)
Friends: R'Kaar Ragarri (Male Caitian Cestus III colonist)
Personal Paradigm Shifts
Most Painful Experience: Being trapped in a collapsed cavern while being irradiated
Best Time: Gaining admission to the Vulcan Science Academy
Most Crucial Experience: Learning that Star Fleet was willing to look past him being Gorn, and see that he could help benefit the Federation from his service.
Role Model: Caitian foster father K'Taar Ragarri on Cestus III
