Personal History

Born Aethelwulf Blade Varia. At the very second Aethel came from his mother's womb he was dis-honed from his family and sent off. This was because of his almost albino features for being a Betazoid. His father had accused Iris (his mother) of foul play even though there was none. His father Zaren was an Ambassador to Trill at the time, and so he gave Aethel to the Trill Ambassador Clori Jen. So Aethel lived almost his entire life with the joined Trill Clori, and her family. Being previous Ambassador to Earth she gave the baby Betazoid a human full name. Born as a Betazoid the young child was born with his abilities active. As this caused pain the Trill Science Ministry was able to invent a small device to inhibit his abilities until adolescents. This device was implanted in the back of his head, thus causing the scar.

Trill was a very peaceful place, and calm, giving him the peace of mind through his first years. He attended school with his almost brother Mark. Both boys were almost expelled from their schools due to their mischievous side. However much they would get into trouble the Betazoid always felt at home with the friendly children and adults. In his Primary School years Aethel was a horrible student. He ignored most of the assignments given to him, and only did the minimal. Of course this brought up concerns to his adopted parents which sent them into a panic. It turned out the device suppressing his natural ability was also affecting his cognitive abilities. Once this device was removed when he was Seven. Thankfully the early abilities had gone back into a state of rest.

Reaching into his adolescent years sent another rocket of startling realizations into his soul. At this time his family introduced him to his real family on Betazed. Zaren was actually pleased to see him and accepted him into his life with ease. Aethelwulf's mother however still took his appearance as a direct insult to her. Iris would rarely speak (or in this case think) to him. The only time she would speak to him was when she would go on a length speech about how are descendants of the 13 Betazoid house. Even though that was never proven, they lived like it. At this time he was also introduced to his siblings, Iris II, and Gale.

Iris as well as Gale accepted him like they had been living together for their entire lives. Due to their genes they three were able to get along and love each other. For Aethel's middle adolescents he moved in with his real family. This was the time that the Ambassador Zaren was stationed aboard the USS Ontdekking, a science vessel. His time was spent running around the science labs, and helping in Sickbay. The ship wasn't sent on combat missions but it did assist in helping planets in medical needs. Aethel took great pride in helping with the injured and helping with anomalies. At 15 the Captain of the Ontedekking made him an acting Midshipman aboard the science ship, to which he used to his advantage.

The USS Ontedekking life took him until the age of 18 where he moved back to Trill. This move was to study at the Trill Science Academy. He was able to finish his First Major in Astrophysics and start his other. However his instructors there kept pushing for him to join Star Fleet. Finally when Mark did, Aethel had no other reason not to go. His trip to Earth was under a luxury of a month. He did not enjoy it as a pair of Ferengi were in the quarters next to his. They attempted dozens of times to trade with him, and he finally snapped yelling at the trading beings and sending them running. They came back to him with bruises on their skin, and multiple cuts.

They brought security with them claiming that the Betazoid attacked them, they asked for latinum as compensation. These two were easily proven wrong and assigned different quarters. Upon reaching Earth Aethel felt differently about the world. He had read most of their general history in that month, and blamed most of the major deaths due to lack of medicine. He compared this to other societies and found the same evidence. This caused him to see he could do better in the Fleet by helping others. So he changed his focus to Medical, and loved the change.
