Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Chewrath Shras ch'Ghorev has what is often referred to as a stiff upper lip. He is very serious, but does put some effort into making himself personable. He is seriously lacking in sense of humor, not only in its delivery, but also in his comprehension of it. Every now and then he tries, usually with little to no degree of success.
Shras' career in Starfleet was almost ended with the loss of one of his life-mates. The rumor is that the three remaining members went their separate ways. A dedicated officer, Shras is reported to be not shy with his opinions. Unlike other Andorians, his family is not what he talks about and he will avoid the subject altogether, to the point that if pressed he can become angry.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Shras' strengths are his honesty and loyalty. He views duty as something that cannot be compromised and will serve a captain to the point of his loyalty being a weakness as well.|
|Ambitions||Shras' ambitions are something that he, himself has been struggling with. He feels that he has achieved what he can in Starfleet, but remains loyal to the cause. His highest ambition at the moment is to serve somewhere where he feels he is going to make a difference.|
|Hobbies & Interests||In his off-time Shras is interested in reading, music, sports and chess. He prides himself on his knowledge of games and claims to know over a hundred different versions of chess. He also enjoys fencing and kharakom, a form of Andorian kickboxing. Even when a holodeck is not available, Shras will still find a way to continue to keep up on his exercise.
He reads a wide variety of material, mostly about the war of other cultures. He listens to Klingon opera, finding it fascinating, much to the chagrin of any roommates he might have.
|Personal History||Shras graduated from Starfleet Academy with tactical training. He was married when he was 19 in a traditional Andorian quad. He left Starfleet for a long time in order to start his family, as encouraged by his government, but returned when he was 35 with new dedication and completed the command training.
Shras' parents were often apart, leading to a varied childhood. Two of his family a zhen, Ieno, and a chan, Ryrd, are both members of Starfleet. Ieno is an instructor at Starfleet Academy and Ryrd is involved in Starfleet Command. His other parents are involved heavily in politics on Andoria.
Although he was often moving from place to place with his parents, Shras' childhood was uneventful. He found his dedication to Starfleet through his parents. Even when he was young he found that Starfleet's goals often spoke to the kind of things he wanted to do with his life.
He struggled for a long time with his homeworld traditions, not wanting to be part of a quad or required to mate, but when the time came he caved and did what was expected of him. Of course, that was mostly for naught. There were no children produced from his quad and not long into the relationship the chan of the quad was killed in the line of duty. Shras was devastated by the loss and almost ended his career in Starfleet, but managed to rally and rededicate himself to duty. He graduated command education with honors.
Much like his childhood, his career has been varied. He has served as security officer, tactical, Captain and Commander. With command of two ships and a base command under his belt, he is hoping to lend his knowledge and experience to new challenges.
Shras was named after Ambassador Shras Endilev, who was an Andorian representative of the United Federation of Planets at the Babel Conference in 2268 (no relation).
