Name: Volurus Yarayn
Nickname/Alias: Vol
Gender: Male
Race: Cardassian
Birthplace: Cardassia Prime 2345
Age: 45
Height: 6' 4"
Weight: 220 lbs
Appearance: Like most Cardassians, his skin is grey and ridged, with his black hair beginning to show grey and white (especially noticeable in a thin stripe of white on the left side). His eyes are a deep, almost emerald green. He wears his hair relatively short and slicked tight against his skull. Even given his weight, his height makes him appear lanky, and most of it is lean muscle. He keeps his uniform crisp and clean and wears his Cardassian military insignia underneath the right breast.
Rank: Commander (First Officer) (formerly Glinn)
Career: Command
Specialization: Military negotiations.
Personality: A long military career has made Volurus a fairly obstinate individual. He is professional when on duty, and hardliner to the rules. Off-duty, he can only be called "not very sociable" (too many years with other Cardassians). Normally, he would be a friendly individual, but interpersonal relationships with non-Cardassians have been difficult for him, especially after the Dominion War. He adores all literature (he never refers to Cardassian books as "literature", because they're "dull and to a one - worth less than offal"), and should anyone broach the subject, he could talk their ears off enthusiastically. He also has no idea how to act around or treat children, since he didn't have much of a child-like childhood himself. And to be frank, he rather envies the boundless hope and trust children have. Should someone get him out of his shell, he might even prove to be more childlike in his 40s than most individuals.
Biography: The eldest of 4 children, Vol was groomed and raised by his parents (a retired Gul and a scholar) specifically to become a military man in his adult years. He has two brothers (one an architect, the other an artist) and one sister who is also a current member of Starfleet. He attended a military academy on Cardassia Prime from a young age and excelled in his studies and training, particularly those encouraging leadership skills and hand-to-hand combat skills. After graduation, he applied for and was accepted at the Cardassian Military Academy. In 2369, he graduated from the Academy and was assigned to the command staff of the Third Order, quickly attaining the rank of Glinn just before the outbreak of the Dominion War.
In 2370, while the ship on which he was assigned was scanning a white dwarf star, the captain, Gul Narcit, ordered the viewscreen to be turned on to view the star visually. The viewscreen didn't polarize quickly enough, permanently blinding most of the bridge crew. Vol was lucky, his own eyesight was only damaged enough to make him need glasses to read for the rest of his life, barring regenerative technology. One of the helmsmen, a young female with whom Vol had been a friendship and entertaining the idea of romantic interest, went mad from excessive scarring reaching into her frontal lobe and murdered three of the engineers on board before Vol and a team of security officers were forced to put her down.
He currently refuses to have his eyesight repaired by Starfleet technology, because the device used by the Federation for this purpose resembles a Cardassian torture device used to cook the brain of sentient humanoids. He was forced to watch one of his ship's security officers kill a captured Vorta this way.
One of the After the formation of the Cardassian Rebellion, his detachment's Gul was one of those who ordered them to attack a Dominion outpost. After the War (2375), he "defected" to the Federation, attending one of Starfleet Academy's branches in the command school as a post-graduate. He struggled to learn Federation protocol after so many years indoctrinated by Cardassian thought, but eventually graduated in 2381 and was assigned position at Federation Outpost 387. His attention to detail and strict adherence to rules and regulations eventually earned him promotion to Commander, after which he requested transfer to the Demeter as the ship's first officer for its maiden voyage in 2389-90, not realizing his sister had also earned position aboard the ship.
He was kept under house-arrest from 2375-77 by Starfleet Command while they and elements of Starfleet Intelligence put his life and Cardassian Military career under the microscope. After a lengthy tribunal, during which his prior career was sealed by the admiralty for his own safety from possible rogue elements of Cardassia and other planets seeking revenge, he was allowed to join the United Federation of Planets as a full citizen and allowed to join Starfleet Academy as well.
He never married and has no children as a result, much to his regret (but secretly hopes it's not too late to start a family).
Given his upbringing to be a military man, Vol has found that he doesn't relate to his family very well and wishes to make up for that by at least getting to know his sister better. However, their vast differences in personality is something of a frustration to him. His brothers Kovat and Melor want nothing to do with him, because (as civilians) they blame the military for their involvement in the Dominion War. Despite this, he is devoted to them and would do anything for them if they ever asked.
Vol's father was called back into service in the Eleventh Order during the Dominion War and died with 500,000 others when the Klingons wiped out the planet on which the Order was stationed. His mother perished on Cardassia Prime when the Dominion mass-bombed the planet at the end of the war.
Since joining the Federation, he's developed a liking (almost to the point of dependency) for Terran coffee.
Strengths: Diplomacy, hand-to-hand combat
Weaknesses: literary debates, threats to his remaining family
Other: He keeps a mated pair of wompats in his quarters as pets.

She is stressed.

I am stressed.

She can cope.

I have no coping mechanisms in place, because anxiety is new.

She yelled at me, insinuated I don't love her.

I know these feelings aren't normal; you don't have to tell me.

I know I need to get help for myself; you don't have to tell me.

I'm sorry.

I walk around the house, a shell of myself.

No one here to bear witness to my emptiness.

I fight off the tears, taking every ounce of my will.

Men aren't supposed to cry.

I know I smile and make others laugh; you don't have to remind me.

I know I've disappointed you before; you don't have to remind me.

I'm sorry.

I've cancelled something I normally enjoy, because the anxiety is too much.

The other express concern, but all I can say is I'm sorting things out.

My head hangs low and I sit in the car, unwilling to move.

I'm sorry...
Anxiety/I'm sorry
Anyone who knows me knows I hate poetry...but this is how I feel today.

I'm sorry.
