Personal History

Growing up on a freighter moving goods back and forth across the galaxy may seem boring, however Zir looked forward to each and every destination. There was always something new to find or a new species he hadn't yet met. Particularly plants, and wide open spaces intrigued the young Saurian the most, as he spent most of his life on a starship.

While visiting Earth at age 8, he met a young Terran named Zachary Wright. Two weeks of tramping through the hills formed a bond of friendship that neither space nor time could part.

Partly because of the extremely tight living quarters growing up, (think small, then think smaller) Zir is extremely close with his family. Most especially with his brother. Being they are much closer in age with each other than with their sister, they were naturally partners (in crime when it could be proven).

When Zir was 15, tragedy struck the Kodan family. While trying to save time while on a journey to Breen space, Xiron took the ship through a very poorly travelled sector of space. An uncharted micro meteor field, sub-par sensor suite, and an overeager captain spelled doom for Uno, and two other members of the crew. Several micro meteors tore thru the ship, and one damaged the warp core. While Uno was available to avoid a core breech, the amount of radiation that she was hit with was much more than the small store of medical supplies they had on hand could control.

This profoundly affected the not so young anymore Zir. While on a video chat with Zachary, they both promised each other that they would join Starfleet Medical to help others who had been injured or sick. Unfortunately in the lax (as far as education goes) environment in which he grew up, Zir was behind others of his age academically.

When he was 20 years old, he travelled to Earth to join Starfleet. Unfortunately he failed his first attempt. Instead of it depressing him, it spurred him on to study harder. The next year he was the top applicant selected.

His sister Lorna is at the moment slightly annoyed with him. She thinks if he wanted to work in space so bad that Zir should have stayed with her on Dark Moon.
