|Physical Description||Bronze skin with cranial ridges not dissimilar to Klingon but more smooth. White eyes which are indicative of poor eyesight due to the blinding snowstorms that exist on Efros Delta. Despite poor vision, Efrosians have a better range of vision that many humanoid species, allowing them to see spectrums of light not normally visible to the naked eye.|
|Children||None (that he knows of)|
|Mother||Fioden Ra-Ezin (deceased)|
|Other Family||None (that he knows of)|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Giras Ra-Ezin is generally a reserved, contemplative, observer of humanoid behavior who is a consummate professional. He avoids social interaction directly and prefers to stand in silence and consume information through experience. His curiosity about humanoid behavior is an exploration of his own life and his search for the meaning of existence. This has led him to study psychology and cultural anthropology. His choice to take the path of conn in Starfleet instead of Counseling/Medical was due to an utter lack of interest in helping shape/mold/treat humanoid behavior.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Giras Ra-Ezin has greater than normal physical strength that was required to survive the harsh conditions of Efros Delta, with it's neverending blizzard-like weather as part of its everyday client. The environmental conditions of his planet was also the cause of his poor vision. Though his eyesight can see certain spectrums of light the normal humanoid cannot see, normal humanoid eyesight for him is blurred/dulled. Efrosian/Federation have developed special glasses that allow him to see normally and the Efrosian's remaining senses are heightened; specifically the sense of smell.|
|Ambitions||Ra-Ezin joined Starfleet later in life; his ambitions are to explore and understand the behavior of other beings, their motivations, and what guides their actions. Starfleet provided the best faucet for that; exploring new worlds, new civilizations, allows him to explore new behaviors, and to boldly go where no one really wanted to go before.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Ra-Ezin is very spiritual and a religious practitioner of Endless Sky. The Efrosian spiritual beliefs are very private and most of what is known about Endless Sky is apocryphal.|
|Personal History||Like most Efrosians, Giros Ra-Ezin was raised by his mother. Efrosians do not believe in monogamy; the typical nuclear family units found in many species do not exist in Efros. Efrosians typically take a pragmatic view to reproduction; Efrosian males are typically known for their "hit-and-run" which is a culturally acceptable practice of Efros. Efrosian females typically become mothers as their contribution to society. Giros Ra-Ezin's mother did not have the opportunity to reproduce more than once; she was brutally murdered during Giros's childhood.
The murderer, another Efrosian, had suffered from the Efrosian equivalent of bi-polar disorder with paranoid delusions. He was captured and, through the Efrosian system of justice, was executed for his act of murder despite his mental instability. Giros began his long journey to understand what had caused the murderer's impulse to murder his mother and as an adult spent most of his adult life in academia.
He would have preferred to remain on Efros and his studies but he plateaued and decided that he would gain true understanding and enlightenment by direct observation. He began with taking on small work on interstellar ships but found that he could not make any headway on civilian ships so he did the only logical thing. He joined Starfleet Academy.
