Personality & Traits

General Overview Torlek is a well mannered, social, friendly and driven officer. Due to his past and education he is still a bit split, and although he claims to the four winds his issues are all settled, that might not be so. More often than he wants to admit he is still confronted with being too Klingon to be Human, and acting too Human to be Klingon.

He always drove himself to make his own path, and the one thing he prides himself on learning from his foster planet was humor. Torlek enjoys a good laugh, and given the proper circumstances he quickly becomes the ships practical joker.
However, he is a serious officer and when the time comes to pull up the sleeves and do the job he does it without hesitation and efficiently.

He does not roll up sleeves literally, as he doesn’t let just anyone see him barefoot. The scar in his forearm and the lack of two toes makes him a bit self conscious of his figure
Strengths & Weaknesses Torlek has an open mind, and easily sees through things from almost all perspectives. He is passionate about that tasks he dives into, curious and dedicated.

Always with a joke ready he knows how to behave himself and can be quiet and reserved if needed.

Torleks greatest weakness is his stubbornness. If he is centered in a one track action he becomes almost fanatical about it. Related to that he can be very impulsive, and although to his credit he avoids it as much as possible, if things become physical he is difficult to stop.
Ambitions Torlek is more focused on personal growth than really achieving a promising career.

He wishes to explore and make his own path across the Universe
Hobbies & Interests Social games, anything that involves playing and interacting with others. He is a huge fan of board games, like 3D chess,scrabble and mimicking games, even though he is a lousy player and loses most of the times.

He likes to exercise, but avoids physical and combat training. He plays soccer, mostly on the holodeck where he recreates famous games from Earth's history.

He has some marginal interest in History and Archeology, as with Art, particularly paintings. However he show genuine interest if it regards a foreign species and are new to him.
Language(s) Spoken Federation standard. He doesn’t speak klingonese, only knowing a couple of expressions and words.

Personal History Torlek was born in the Klingon capital in 2366, son of Chang and Otha, from the discrete yet renown House Torlek. His grandfather was a famous Captain and “compagnon de route” of chancelor K’Mpek ever since their days in Klingon Academy.

After his grandfather was considered lost his father inherited the House, and was a close advisor to K’Mpek, although not yet member of the High Council. In the last years of K’Mpek rule Chang become close to Gowron and when war broke after K’Mpek’s death Chang joined Gowron against House Duras.

Torlek estate was attacked and Torlek’s mother died there protecting him. Still a child he was cared for with Gowron’s family as his father joined the front line. After Gowron’s victory Chang, fully avenged but also heartbroken asked to be stationed on Earth in the Klingon embassy. Decided to keep himself away from the Empire’s political intrigues, and focusing on raising his son, he sold the remaining lands and broke all ties with Qo’noS.

Torlek was thus raised very differently. His father never hid the Klingon tradicional values from him, but always put an effort on widening his horizons. The fact that he began long relationship with a human helped. Although they eventually went their separate ways Torlek still see’s Irene as his mother, and he has many good memories of the years they were a family.

Torlek had a regular school career, he had good grades but didn’t found an area where he would excel. He liked History and Archaeology, and fomented by Irene’s appreciation of art he followed that track, enrolling in Paris University in 2383. The course was very complete, but Torlek lost himself between studies and the events around him. The troubling years of 2385 and 2387 were also mixed with his parent’s breakup in 2388. Although he wasn’t a child anymore seeing his father and mother going their separate ways struck a chord, and he took some time to get his head straight. He traveled to Qo’noS, Vulcan, Andoria and Risa until he returned to Earth. He didn’t found a propose for himself, but a thought began to brew in his mind.

After long discussions with his parents he quit his degree and chose to enroll in Starfleet Academy. There he began his studies of diplomacy, for him the best solution for compromise in these troubled times. Torlek wasn’t the best in class, but the fact that he was a bit older than most Cadets, with more life experience gave him a different perspective on things. Also for the first time he began to see his father’s work with other eyes.
