Personality & Traits

General Overview Zirvell is a young Cardassian male who is not even out of school. Having fought briefly in the war, he doesn't consider himself a soldier. He's horrified by the acts he saw his father and other soldiers commit and tries to distance himself from them.
Strengths & Weaknesses Zirvell's strengths and weaknesses are still under development and subject to change. However at his current age his main strength is that he can't stand injustice and wants to help those that need it more than he does.

His biggest weakness is that emotionally, he's several years behind in development and this can affect his behaviour. He also has issues with trusting adults that are supposed to look out for him. Especially male adults.
Ambitions Wants to help his people more than anything, but doesn't want to be a soldier.
Hobbies & Interests Has a stuffed Happy Horse bunny which at the moment is his biggest source of comfort, when he needs it. He finds just playing with he ears or just running the label through his fingers utterly comforting and calming.

Personal History Zirvell was born to soldier parents, the youngest of three children, being several years (at least 15 years) younger than his youngest sister. At a young age, he was relocated to Lamenda Colony with his parents and sisters.

During the war, when he was about 6 years old, he lost both his mother and sisters to a Bajoran attack. As such was raised solely by his father and was expectec to enlist as soon as he was nearing the age to do so. However he made it no secret that he had no intention of ever enlisting. Especially not after remembering what the war took from him.

As a young child he was often left to his own devices while his father had to work, and more often than not he had to fend for himself as his father barely gave him any attention. It was clear rather quick that his son wasn't a soldier, and he had fully intend to raise soldiers, not peacekeepers.

Not liking to fight at all, Zirvell felt better trying to help others. He still doesn't know what he really wants to do now that the war is over, but he's leaning towards counseling. He knows he needs to do something constructive if he wants to help his people recover from the Dominion war.

A people person at best, Zirvell wants something where he will be among people. Still, he's unsure of what to do, or how to get there. He's well aware of the prejudice against his people, but he's trying hard not to pay too much attention to it.

With the war over, Zirvell is forced to scavenge to surive as there are barely any resources left on the planet. With no way to leave, he hides in the remains of buildings where he seeks shelter and safety. He doesn't know where his father is, assuming he has either been killed or abandoned him.

A teenager left to his own devices, Zirvell still thinks of others before himself. He'd give his own food away to other children or a mother in need.

Associated with Zaggor Pell when Starfleet arrived and functioned as his side for a brief time. He lied about his age at first, hoping to appear more mature but eventually his true age was revealed. Distanced himself from the would-be governor when the man almost killed him for leading Starfleet to a hidden prison.

After these events, Captain Lukas Fredriks became his legal guardian, since he had no other family to return to.
