Tourock’s father was an Ambassador that spent much time on Earth trying to strengthen relations with Vulcan and Earth. Lorrick Sothrick, in order to help “fit in”, took to using two names instead of traditional Vulcan one name. His Vulcan “talents” were unofficially used by Starfleet Intelligence. It was at one of these times working with Starfleet Intelligence that he met Tourock’s mother, Lauralana Parileen, a Betazoid, of the Thirteenth House, House of Peace and Protection. Ambassador Lauralana in light of the Dominion attack of her home world decided to work with the Federation and became an integral part of rebuilding both the Federation and Betazed. It was later in her career that she began working in the Federation J.A.G. investigations. Her strong telepathic abilities used greatly.
Tourock’s Mother and Father met when they were paired together during a joint Starfleet Intelligence and Federation J.A.G investigation into a possible terrorist plot involving a Starfleet captain and Romulans. The two worked closely together for over two years until the plot was fully exposed and all came to fruition. During this time Tourock's parents found they shared much in common. They both had great passion in the redevelopment of their home worlds and shared the same hopes for the reconstruction of Starfleet and the Federation to restore it back to its formal mission and intentions. They also shared a deep understanding of their pscionic abilities both of them possessing stronger senses than most of their peers. It was not long before a strong mental bond was formed. Lauralana fell deeply in love with Lorrick and Lorrick in turn found it only logical for them to marry. While their love was real and strong Tourock had always felt they just wished to study each other more closely.
It was early in their marriage that they had one child, a son, who was born on Vulcan as Lorrick and his parents insisted. Lorrick waited several days, as Vulcan tradition, to name his new son. Through long meditation both Lorrick and Lauralana arrived at the Vulcan name Tourock (Meaning: Wise Warrior).
The name seemed to hold correct. While still young it was obvious that Tourock’s mental abilities would exceed both his parents. With Lorrick's parent’s guidance and both Tourock’s parents blessing and support Tourock was directed and mentored ferociously with his studies. Tourock excelled with ease through his studies but even more so with his telepathic abilities. Abilities which usually don’t present in either Vulcan or Betazoids until puberty, were presenting and seemed well advanced in Tourock, as early as 6 years old. It was also obvious that Tourock was not limited to touch telepathy like most Vulcans. At the tender age of ten Tourock tried, without proper guidance, to mind meld. While he showed great ability for being untrained he almost caused great damage to himself and the one he was attempting with. Even after receiving the proper training he never attempted to mindmeld again.
With his mothers teaching, also always present, it was not long before Tourock found and studied the teachings of V'tosh ka'tur, which was quite different from the widely accepted practice of Vulcan tradition and thoughts of emotion. His father greatly instilled the traditional while his mother wished him to explore his emotions more. While deeply interested in V'tosh ka'tur, Tourock has maintained what he considers a balance of the two teachings.
Both Mother and his father pushed Tourock to excel in his mental abilities. They both found that their union could bring a new awakening for both species in Tourock and placed great pressure and hopes on Tourock. Lorrick even went so far as to challenge the High Priest in allowing Tourock to join them and become part of them. In his eyes his son would soon surpass the Elder Priest. The Council and The Priest fanatically declined.
At age 10 Tourock and his father moved to Qo'noS, Klingon home world, in an effort by the Ambassador to strengthen relations between The Federation and Klingons fearing Romulan assaults against both as well as Vulcan. While on Qo’noS, Tourock really only made one friend, who reached out to him first. For some reason a young boy named Lor-Dok took it upon himself to train with Tourock calling him his warrior brother. Tourock was well versed in "Tal-Shaya", and "Suus Mahna" Vulcan Martial arts. It was with his new warrior brother that he began closely training his physical attributes. Tourock worked out daily sometimes for hours a day. His life at that time consisted of meditation and warrior training. Lor-Dok and he would bait other young Klingons into pointless fights while Lor-Dok got great pleasure seeing Tourock shame the other Klingon boys with his surprising strength and speed. He found himself very flexible and quick but his “heightened senses” allowed him quicker reaction to his opponents moves and allowed him to anticipate their attack quicker. The two boys became inseparable training and sharing fighting tactics.
At age fifteen Tourock and his parents moved to Earth. Tourock studied the multiple fighting styles of Earth and blended them with Vulcan and Klingon styles. He did all he could to keep his new interest out of the eyes of both his parents. It was on Earth however he started his collection of ancient weapons, his favorite becoming a personalized set. A Wakasashi and a Katana replicated the “old fashion way” forged just for him. His most prized possession is a Bat-leth from Alexander son of Worf house of Moug.
While on Earth he finished his school still training in Vulcan studies but also receiving a “human” education. He continued his education by attending an Earth bound college and studied Psychology. While in school he always maintained top grades in his classes. After his graduation from the human college Harvard, he for a limited time, traveled with his father working as an assistant. He often found himself reacting more like a body guard in more than a few instances.
It was not long his love for Martial Arts and Hand to Hand Combat and the logical strategies of both, won out over his parents’ wishes and he enrolled in Starfleet Marine Corps. While stationed as a Marine grunt on Starbase Bravo he met and fell in love with a young brilliant Medical office named Leslie Vade. She was ½ Human ¼ Vulcan and ¼ Betazoid. This became instant common ground and before either of them knew it they linked on a deep scale. She had only previously lived on Earth and after many chance encounters on the station they found that their paths had crossed many times on Earth. After a year together they were married in a traditional Betazoid Wedding.
It was only two years after Tourock’s wedding that his Mother went missing and presumed dead. She and a ship she was investigating had disappeared. While Lorrick tired to not let it show, this deeply consumed him.
One year after his mothers’ disappearance, Tourock was on a Marine mission and upon returning to base found that an explosion in Starbase Bravo claimed his wife and two other officers. Tourock tried to gain involvement with the investigation but was denied every time. He originally was told the explosion was a possible Romulan attack or sabotage.
This statement was recanted and the incident was declared an “accident”. As Tourock tried to research their findings he found all subject matter on the information was blocked, sealed, or classified with a rating of 8 security clearance.
The ‘incident’ has seemingly been erased from the history, with no further explanation as to why. Tourock tried to enlist his father’s aide to find more information but found his father deeply wrapped up in his mothers disappearance and had become quite obsessed with that. His father did speak that for his own reasons he believed both incidents were related.
A year after his wife’s death Tourock de-enlisted. He first worked closely with his father but it was not long until his father had sent him away. Lorrick saw the torment this was causing his son and thought it best for Tourock to go back to Vulcan.
Tourock found more comfort back on Earth instead. He lived on Earth for over eight years. He worked in private and public sectors of Security, Policeing and Investigation. He found a real talent in Criminal Profiling, and Interrogation. He even dabbled in the Forensic Science. He became well known as an investigator and Profiler and worked mostly in these fields. Although he was very good at this he was lost and found himself looking for more.
It was only after a rare meeting with his father did things change or inspire the change for him. Lorrick was having a meeting with Ambassador Spock on Earth. It was then that Tourock got to meet and speak with the Ambassador. Spock spoke with Tourock and gave him profound wisdom that made Tourock realize that his current life was not only NOT honoring his mother or his wife, but was destructive to his own life.
After that meeting Tourock reapplied to Starfleet Academy majoring in Security. Tourock was accepted and for the first time in his life Tourock struggled through his first few days in the Academy but soon acclimated. He was surprised by the Academy rigorous teachings and training.
As he made his way through the courses he found himself using his skills he acquired on Earth. He also quickly devised the plan to gain enough clearance to find more information on both his wife and his mothers “incidents”.
He saw this as a new chapter in his life and intended to make it so.
After graduating from the academy Sothrick’s first assignment was the USS Nova. One of the largest and newest ships of the fleet. Sothrick was honored that he was chosen to join the team of such a ship.
His elation was soon over. It was only hours after his arrival when he found himself watching his new crewmate die in his arms. What exactly happened he was never sure but it did make him come to the realization that he was still in a very dangerous service.
His first real mission he was paired with members of the USS Philadelphia to meet new delegates of a new species called Gondawanans. While on this relatively uneventful mission Sothrick met or re-met rather a young science officer he had originally went to the academy with. He was surprised to find this was his first time to make a real connection with any other person which awoke him from his grief.
During the mission the USS Nova was hit by a strange suppression beam that made it dead it space. It became that they had walked into a Civil war and the Federation decided to leave the species to their own.
The Nova was towed back to space dock and from there Sothrick and many from the Nova was reassigned to the USS Pegasus. Sothrick was relieved that he was assigned to the Pegasus with his first assigned Chief of Security.
This mission called for all of fourth fleet to merge on a distress call from the system. On route the Pegasus was attacked by ‘altered’ Klingons. The Klingons attacks how the reacted how they moved made them make Sothrick believe they were not true Klingon’s. They had a curious happening when hit by energy weapons. This further lent to the idea they were curiously altered. This did not impact the devastation that they had left behind. They easily and successfully boarded and nearly destroyed the Pegasus. Sothrick was still not sure how they repelled the Klingon’s but they did manage to do so but not with great loss of life. As Sothrick was part of Security detail he was chosen with several others to join a mission to the planet surface. There the carnage only got worse. In an attempt to help the citizens they met with Planet officials once actually meeting the regime in charge they were tricked and trapped. Several crewmates again were lost but again the team managed to make its way out as the Nova beamed them out in the nick of time.
After a promotion Sothrick spent time on Starbase Delta with his roommate Ensign Phoenix. There he met an intriguing and attractive Science Ensign but she was assigned to the USS Sheridan. Just before launch and returning to the Pegasus he was informed that he would be taking over as the Acting Chief of Security for the USS Sheridan. This promotion made a bit of irony for Sothrick as he was now assigned to the same ship as to the woman he met and spoke with on Delta. While on the ship their relationship continued and grew.
This mission was the first where Sothrick was fully in charge of his own crew and department. On this mission Sothrick faced death once again which he was more than familiar with. He was used to it as a Marine and since he has now become Starfleet officer every mission he has been involved with has been that of significant danger. This however was the first that he was not only apart of but he was completely in charge of his own department. This also led to his first loss under his command. He had taken a small away team on the surface that was answered by hostile drones. These drones were responsible for killing one of the young Crewmen Recruits. This loss weighed on Sothrick but after returning to the Sheirdan the crew was informed of an impending war as an unknown force had attacked two Federation bases as well as the planet Bajor.
