Personal History

Early Life

Saul was born on the Tyrol family estate in the countryside outside of Rome on Magna Roma. His mother was half-Betazoid, giving Saul (and all of his siblings) innate empathic abilities. He grew up with his five younger siblings, and excelled in school, progressing rapidly through the grades. At age 14 he was enrolled in an Honors Program and was taking undergraduate level courses in lieu of the standard academic fare. He graduated school at age 16 with full honors, and declared his adulthood, a practice still followed in many rural area on Magna Roma. He married his girlfriend, Aurora Faustina Adriana (who was two years older), the following summer, on June 4. Upon returning from their honeymoon, Saul and his wife learned that his mother was pregnant once more, quite unexpectedly. Saul's youngest brother was born the following spring, though Saul did not get to meet his new brother until the end of his first year of university.

Schooling/Star Fleet Academy

Saul enrolled at the University of Rome, and graduated at age 19 with a BA in Astronomy and Ancient History. He applied to the PhD program in Astronomy at the University of Cambridge on Earth. His application was accepted, though he was required to complete their MSci degree first. During that time he decided that Starfleet offered the greatest opportunities for his field of study. He applied to Starfleet Academy, and was accepted. After completing his first two years at the Academy, he began his research for his PhD in Astronomy, choosing a joint Cambridge-Starfleet project. Saul graduated from the Academy at age 24, earning his MS in Astronomy and a BS in Computer Science. He also completed work on his doctoral research the following year, while on leave pending his first assignment. He earned his PhD in Astronomy from the University of Cambridge on Stardate 20906.12.

Family Life

At the beginning of his third year at the Academy, Saul's daughter, Anastasia, was born, on October 6. Juggling his Academy courses, thesis research, and his young family was mentally and physically exhausting. Fortunately for both Saul and Aurora, his sister Christiana moved to San Francisco to help with the newborn Anastasia. Her help was much appreciated, and both Saul and Aurora thanked her for putting her life on hold for them. Christiana laughed it off, claiming that she'd need to get away from their newest little brother, Gallus, and they're parents. As it turned out, the family back home had been even less prepared for new addition to the family than Saul and Aurora had been. Christiana moved back to Magna Roma after Saul graduated from the Academy.

Early Career

Saul's first assignment was a temporary posting to the USS Darius, a destroyer that had recently received the latest refit. The shakedown cruise, scheduled during the regular crew's leave, had gone more or less as planned, with the Darius making two escort runs for convoys bringing aid and supplies in to the recently liberated Acamar system. The return trip to SBA had been more eventful, as the Darius had the chance to rescue the crew of a freighter that had suffered a warp drive malfunction deep in the space lanes. Upon the Darius arrival at space dock, Saul was promoted to Ensign and received his first long-term posting, aboard the newly commissioned USS Nova, a Pulsar-class Battleship.

Phobias: Mild fear of heights
Likes: Good books, holodeck simulations, and good food.

Bad Habits or Vices: Pipe smoking, drinking, swearing
Achievements: Marrying his wife, Aurora. Fathering his daughter, Anastasia. Earning his PhD in Astronomy from the University of Cambridge.

Illnesses: Nothing particularly noteworthy, other than broken ribs during high school.
Strengths: Highly intelligent with excellent situational awareness, a trait increased by his empathic ability. Tough and durable, and well disciplined under fire. Well trained in Magna Romani martial arts.

Distinguishing Features: Somewhat narrow face and intense, hawk-like gaze, though otherwise nondescript. Empathic ability: primarily limited to his immediate surroundings; ability can be focused to sense specific individuals over distances of several hundred meters, with maximum distance dependant on familiarity with the subject.
Pets: None
Friends: Hadrian Drusus. The two have been close friends since grade school, and continue to maintain contact despite Saul's joining Starfleet and Hadrian's joining the Magna Romani military.

Personal Paradigm Shifts

Most Painful Experience: The first time he brought up courtship and marriage with Aurora. She shot him down almost immediately, claiming they were too young to talk about such things. Later that day he'd gone to training grounds and picked a sword fight with a much larger and more skilled opponent. Despite the fact that they were using practice swords, the fight ended with Saul's opponent breaking several of Saul's ribs, possibly owing to the fact that, in his anger at Aurora's refusal, he'd immediately taken the practice fight from practice to actual combat. Aurora had seen the end of the fight, and had immediately run to Saul's side. She'd helped him get medical attention and had told how much she loved him and how he'd better not scare her like again, all while managing to innocuously driving home her earlier point about being too young to discuss courtship. The whole ordeal, in addition to hurting like hell, had been embarrassing. Ironically, Saul and Aurora married the next summer.
Best Time: His honeymoon and the birth of his daughter, in that order.
Most Crucial Experience: Completing his doctorate, graduating from the Academy, and raising his newborn daughter, all at the same time. It taught him the true limits of his mental and physical endurance. It also taught him that just because he can multitask, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's a good idea to do so.
Role Model: Severus Octavius, his maternal grandfather, who served in Starfleet as an engineer, and was later elected as Magna Roma's Federation Councilor
