Don West was found on the doorstep of the shinning temple, a Buddhist monastery in North Deqen on the first of March. The elders of the temple had no idea who he was or where he had come from and so that became is birth date. Looking more Western than Asian they named him West.
D.N.A tests revealed that he was half human and half Bajoran. He grew up in the temple and learnt the Buddhist ways, but he found it very difficult to fit in. Not only was he half human, but his human traits let him stand out even more. He was a fair headed Caucasian between all the dark haired Asian children. West became a loner, concentrating on the Long Fist fighting style the monks had taught him. He would also meditate while the other children would be out playing and socializing. Over the years he became a good listener, because he had no friends and would always be on the outskirts of conversations which were taking place. By the age of thirteen West could identify a person walking down the halls be the sound of their footsteps. When West turned 15, he had had enough of life in the monastery and decided to leave during the night and never look back. He joined up with a local gang in the city and made a living on the streets, with illegal racing. It seemed to come natural to him and he was soon in high demand, everyone wanting him to ride for them. He was given the street name of Viper.
West managed to stay on the top for of his game for the next two years, living in style and partying every night. He had everything he wanted and girls fell at his feet. It would be on the eve of his 18th birthday, when his life would take a serious change of direction. It was to be a straight forward race, through a quiet section of the city, against T’Kor, a racer he had beaten many times before. West had no idea his vehicle had been tampered with, and 10 minutes into the race disaster struck. West lost control of his vehicle and rolled it around a corner. The vehicle crashed into a young mom, holding her 6 month old baby.
As West lay upside down, blood rushing from his face, he could her the baby crying. He managed to free him self from the wreckage and scrambled over to the mom and baby. The mom lay motionless on the floor, while the baby cried. All he could do was run his hands through his hair, as he had no idea what to do. He picked the baby up and held it tight, till he heard the sirens growing near. West watched as his vehicle burnt out and as the first police vehicle arrived at the crash site, West placed the baby down and disappeared into the dark.
Two hours later, West found himself in a pub, his face still covered in blood. The bar lady saw him and rushed to his aid. She introduced herself as Leona Ford. West did not want to go to a hospital in case the police where looking for him, so Leona took him to her house. She tended his wounds and listened to his story, but did not judge.
Five days later they both moved out of China to San Francisco. West had never had a real job, but Leona made sure he tried, she made sure he did not get involved with gangs again. The fact that he could not help the mother the night of his crash haunted him, and every time he looked in the mirror he was reminded of her. West knew he needed to help the needy if he wanted to get his soul back. Leona gave him the means, when she returned home one day with Starfleet application forms.
West enrolled and worked hard every day. He was accepted into the medical field and once again excelled at it. After West had graduated, he decided to study further and increase his knowledge. West finished his Professors degree in Molecular Biology and with his MD degree, he started to feel he could mean something to society again.
Leona had also made a life for herself in that time, so when West decided he wanted to serve on a Starship, they split ways.
After a short wait, West was assigned to the USS Avenger, under the command of Captain Grant.
