Personality & Traits

General Overview Eiri has proven time and time again that he is capable of remaining calm under pressure and following orders. Because of his extensive knowledge of languages he also makes an excellent negotiator. He was born telepathic and empathic, which is reported to drive many Betazoids to insanity, but because of the stability of his Vulcan training, he seems to be able to handle the onslaught of others' emotional states with an excellent degree of success. He can become overwhelmed in large crowds and prefers to avoid them if possible. He is a personnel member that is not often seen in the crew lounge. Some tend to think of him as being aloof, even stoic at times, but these are far from the truth. He was simply raised in a structured environment that did not allow room of overreaction and emotion.
Strengths & Weaknesses Eiri's strengths lie in his ability to research quickly and efficiently. He is able to postulate theories quickly and effectively.

His weaknesses are that his research consumes him to the detriment of his own health. Often, he is incapable of separating the small picture from the big one.
Ambitions Eiri's ambitions have, for the most part, been actualized. He is a counselor and well respected writer and researcher. He does not seek to be in command of his own ship at any point, but instead is focused on making himself as useful as possible to Starfleet research and development.
Hobbies & Interests Eiri's hobbies and interests involve mostly reading and research. His personal concerns lie in species and the study of the constantly changing biology of evolving species. He spends many hours categorizing species by their genome, as well as, setting up genomes categories for planets that do not categorize their species in writing.

Personal History Born in 2356 in ShiKahr, Eiri was always on the fast-track for learning. He was an avid reader when he was a child and surpassed other students quickly. By the time he reached secondary school it was obvious to his parents that advanced learning classes would suit him better. He was 15 years of age when he entered the Vulcan Science Academy. His major was psychology, but he also excels at languages, with degrees in both the medical (genomics) and science (Terra-forming) fields.

Eiri's father is an instructor at the Vulcan Science Academy and his mother is a Betazoid Ambassador to Vulcan. His first assignment from Starfleet was planet-side in a Terra-forming expedition. He has logged very little time in space.

He is a published author. The subject matter consisting of studies of planets and terra-forming, atmosphere and transplanting species. He has also written several articles on the changes seen in species that have been transplanted as well as journals about the mental hardships of being with a small group of people, without outside contact, for several years.

Eiri graduated from both the Vulcan Science Academy and Starfleet Academy. He is the one of the youngest people to have done so in both histories. He had a reputation of being exceptional at problem solving and his advice is usually forthright and to the point. He is logical, but personable as well, understanding the drives and motivations of many species.

Six years ago he was married to his long-time partner Retol Ayan in a private ceremony on Bajor. Ayan also serves in Starfleet as an Operations Officer. Ayan is almost 10 years younger than Eiri, but the age difference has never compromised their strong bond.
