Personal History Born on Earth to Betazoid parents, he became a child of two worlds. Culturally, at home, he was Betazoid. He followed the traditions of his people. He knew the history and the stories. To widen his viewpoint, his parents chose to send him to the local schools. His parents were research scientists working for Starfleet and as such, had long ago adapted to life among a variety of cultures and wanted the same experience for their son.

He attended private schools in London that emphasized social responsibility and offered a wide variety of programs. He studied ballet, fencing (for a time), swimming, and LaCrosse though intellectually he was drawn to the life sciences. He made friends easily and proved to be a good student.

At puberty, when his telepathic and empathic abilities surged to the forefront, he struggled under the onslaught of the undisciplined minds that surrounded him. Withdrew from his friends and struggled both in class and in clubs. The cause was readily apparent and one of his teachers, a Vulcan named Sovak, began instructing him in the mental disciplines he needed. Through these sessions, he became interested in Vulcan philosphy and while he'd never be brilliant at chess, he did enjoy losing to Sovak while they discussed a wide range of subjects.

In some respects, his activities reflected the duality of his life. The Betazoid, open to life and the minds of those around him, believed in social responsibility and began to focus his studies on a career in medicine. However, through the school and the friends he made there, he also became interested in competition, through LaCrosse, and the creative expression of dance, through ballet.

He knew he would become a doctor, had known that for some time and redoubled his training with Sovak so that by the time he entered the Academy, he already possessed a formidable set of personal shields. While at the Academy, he took additional training to help him identify and dampen psychic intrusion into his own head, along with the reinforcement of his control over his telepathic and empathic abilities.
