Personality & Traits

General Overview Vos is a complicated man who grew up in labor camps and resistance cells, leaving him with not much of a childhood as a result. He's an extreme workaholic with very few hobbies, but he's also a great leader. Being in the resistance forced him to learn how to manage and direct men and equipment better than any Starfleet Academy training ever could. He knows the importance of crew morale and has an instinct for picking the best man for a job. His command role distances him somewhat but he maintains close friends both in Bajor and Starfleet, not to mention other worlds.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths - Intelligent, charismatic, capable, with applicable knowledge of logistics, small unit tactics, sabotage, hand to hand, and small arms. Capable pilot.
Weaknesses - Workaholic, understandable lack of love and respect for Cardassians, has trouble seeing the bigger picture sometimes.
Ambitions His own command, a family, children to grow up without having to deal with Cardassians or the Dominion.
Hobbies & Interests Vos doesn't have many hobbies, but when he does allow himself to relax he'll read from a collection of first edition books not only from Bajor, but also from Earth, Romulus, Cardassia, the Klingon Empire, and Vulcan. He considers holonovels to be useless fantasy.
Languages Bajoran, Terran, Cardassian, Romulan

Personal History Vos was born in a labor camp, working a mine in the Lotha Province of Bajor. He spent his first thirteen standard years under the Cardassian lash. His mother died giving birth to him as medical supplies were scarce and the Cardassians hardly cared about public health as long as the quotas were filled. He was raised by his father, Lorran Cale, and older sister, Mara, who grew into a maternal figure for the boy. She cared for the infant at the expense of her own health when needed, giving him her share of the scarce food they were provided. In his thirteenth year, his father led Vos and Mara on an escape attempt from their labor camp. Lorran Cale was shot to death and Mara was blinded by a Cardassian weapon in the attempt but both of the children got out alive. They joined the Karath resistance cell not long after.

Vos proved his worth, taking double the weight in order to provide for his handicapped sister. For three years he took the most dangerous assignments, led the riskiest ambushes, and through it all proved to have quite the talent for guerilla combat, small unit tactics, and logistics. When the leader of the resistance cell was killed in a raid on a Cardassian supply depot, Vos took over. He was only sixteen years old. For the next three four years until the end of the Occupation, the Karath resistance cell was one of the most successful groups of freedom fighters on Bajor, second only to the Shakaar.

When the Occupation ended, Mara married a friend of theirs from the Karath cell and settled down on Bajor, but Vos found himself restless. He couldn't simply settle down and be a farmer, the Occupation had molded him into a different sort of man. So, when he was twenty years old he was included in the first wave of Independent Bajorans to apply to Starfleet Academy. He found the relative comfort and wealth of Earth difficult to adjust to at first, but he dove headfirst into his studies. He had piloted Bajoran raiding ships during the Occupation so he majored in Flight Control with an emphasis in Command. One did not simply become a starship captain immediately out of the Academy. It would require years of experience and referrals from his commanding officers along the way, but Vos was determined.

Vos' first assignment was the USS Achilles, upon which he served for four years which included action in the Dominion War. Next was the USS Moscow when he was promoted. However, after two years a disagreement with the captain's methods and attitude concerning the Maquis led to a request for transfer. His sympathies for the Maquis were noted by Starfleet security, but regardless he was given a posting aboard the USS Leyte Gulf for another five years of his career. This would turn out to be one of the most enjoyable experiences he was yet to have in Starfleet, and he became close friends with much of the senior staff. His subtle, but commanding attitude and charisma were lauded by his former captain when he wrote the Vos' recommendation for a Command position.

Presently, Lorran Vos has been assigned to the USS Genesis as Executive Officer.
