Personality & Traits

General Overview While Sukan follows logic and suppresses emotion, he is not a traditional Vulcan by any means. He has an appreciation for other species, and their emotions, and finds them quite fascinating. He frequently uses dry humor as a means to participate in conversations with other species, without allowing his emotions to overwhelm him.
Strengths & Weaknesses + Follows the rules of logic, as most Vulcans do
+ Has admirable job performance, even in the face of distractions
+ Has a dry wit, as well as the ability to be sarcastic, that helps him get along with more emotional species
- Has an overconfidence in his abilities
- Does not like asking for help
Ambitions Sukan’s ambitions are to have a meaningful Starfleet career, ensuring he has a positive impact on as many people as possible, before retiring and starting a family on Vulcan. He has no plans to transfer out of the operations division at his current time.
Hobbies & Interests Like most Vulcans, Sukan spends most of his free time meditating and focusing himself. Outside of this, Sukan spends time taking holodeck walks through alien worlds.
Sukan has a particular fascination with emotions - part of which is why he chose to serve aboard a ship with several empaths, and few Vulcans. Sukan also has an appreciation for art, particularly those focused on realism.

Personal History Sukan is the third child of Xon and Volkis, with two younger brothers and two older sisters. He was born on Vulcan in 2365.
His father was a notable Starfleet admiral during the late 23rd century, and towards the early 24th, who helped negotiate various treaties such as the Treaty of Algeron with the Romulan empire.
His mother was a teacher at the Vulcan Sciences Institute in Raal, who spent most of her time on Vulcan.
As such, during Sukan’s childhood, he often found himself split between two worlds - that of the Federation, and that of Vulcan. In the end, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and applied to Starfleet, while most of his siblings continued to reside on Vulcan.
