History and Education
Family and Background: Valek was born in ShiKahr, a major city on Vulcan, located on the edge of the howling wind scoured desert known as Vulcan's Forge, and ten days travel on foot from the L-langon Mountains. His family was involved in accounting and business analysis.
Pre-Starfleet History: Valek ran the family business for a few years after his parents died, until his younger siblings could take over. Then he turned his attention back to his career and eventually joined Starfleet.
Starfleet History: Served aboard the USS Cochrane, an exploratory research vessel involved in cartography and star-mapping. He later served aboard the USS Velasquez, a high security destroyer, until his disillusionment with Doenitz became too great. He considers his position within the Academy a way to help route those cadets of talent and intelligence to LoDona’s Fleet.
Medical History: Allergic to Earth’s white “Irish” potatoes, but otherwise healthy.
Hobbies: Plays Vulcan lute and gains satisfaction from creating Vulcan cuisine for himself and other faculty members.
Skills and Abilities: Valek can make mathematical calculations even more quickly and accurately than most Vulcans. He is adept at applying his knowledge in creative and unexpected ways.
Notes: Valek is a demanding instructor who insists upon excellence from his cadets, encouraging them to use creative problem solving skills. He has a reputation for being intimidating… but in fact, if he believes that a cadet is doing the best he or she can, he can be counted on to go the extra mile to help the cadet achieve success.
