Here's the current Bio for my character:

Weight 193 lbs
Hair Color Dirty Blonde
Eye Color Brown
Physical Description Rahn is average height and well built. He keeps his dirty blonde hair cut short and almost always has stubble on his face and chin.
Rahn is a sullen man that prefers to be alone. He is quiet and observant. When he does speak he comes off as cocky. He generally distrusts everyone he meets until he gets to know them better. His time in a labor camp left him scarred and bitter. He spends his spare time drinking or talking to his imaginary friend, Kalah.
He despises all things Starfleet and feels trapped in his current career but he sees no way out. He does what he has to do in Starfleet because his only other option is to return to Bajor.
Because of his half-sister, Rahn hates all hybrid species. He sees them as an abomination and would prefer to see them dead. His oath as a doctor and the fact that he isn’t a murderer is the only thing stopping him.
Rahn was born in Bennikar, a small village located in the Kaladrys Valley on Bajor. He had a rough childhood and dreamed of a time when the Cardassians would leave Bajor. As a child he helped his family on their Verdanis ranch. This left little time for leisure or friendships and Rahn eventually 'found' an imaginary friend named Kalah.
As he grew older his responsibilities expanded to other areas. He moved his focus on the ranch to treating the injured verdanis rather then feeding them. He began working with the local doctor and tried to learn as much as he could. He used the knowledge to develop new protocols that helped reduce injuries in the animals. As a result, the animals flourished and the village began to prosper.
All of that changed when the village was overrun during the Dominion War and Rahn and the others were taken prisoner. The villagers were rounded up and taken to the Batal labor camp. During the captivity, Rahn and the other males were beaten on a semi-regular basis. Rahn began withdrawing into himself to escape from the nightmare that had become his life but still managed to do what he could to help the others with their injuries.
Two months into the captivity, Rahn was nearly killed when he witnessed a Cardassian guard raping his mother. Rahn attacked the guard and was severely beaten. For three straight days Rahn was beaten and tortured by the guards. When it was over, Rahn spent the majority of his time alone, talking to no one but Kalah.
Several months later the captives were rescued and many returned to their villages. Rahn lost himself in his work and slowly began to return to normal. He began interacting with others and even began laughing again. His life was again turned upside-down when his mother gave birth to a Bajoran/Cardassian girl. Seeing his half-sister reminded him of his time at Batal. He had difficulty accepting the situation and again withdrew into himself, splitting his time between getting drunk and talking to Kalah.
Nearly a year later, Rahn could take no more and began looking for a way off the planet. He'd considered moving to another village but he knew there were similar situations everywhere on Bajor. He knew he couldn't afford to book passage far enough away from Bajor and he began to get frustrated. One night, half way through a bottle, the idea came to him to apply to Starfleet academy. He had no real interest in joining Starfleet but it was a way to get off the planet and away from Cardassian space. The next day he submitted his application.
His Freshman year at the Academy was difficult for him. He was still having trouble dealing with his recent past and had trouble fitting in. He struggled with his classes and tried to join a few study groups but they had a hard time dealing with his attitude. Rahn soon gave up and chose to work alone, barely managing to pass his Freshman year.
As the Sophomore year began, Rahn attempted to join a study group again and did his best to fit in. As the year progressed, he learned to adapt to the needs of the others and began to fit in again. His crowning achievement during the school year was winning the Annual Science Fair with his science team.
The rest of his time at the Academy was easier and he quickly became a popular study partner. Things took a dramatic turn his senior year when he assisted a Bolian with a suicide. He was taken before a Review Board for charges against him. After further review, he was cleared of wrong doing and his record was wiped clean.
Rahn was disappointed when he graduated 11th in his class but quickly recovered as his classmates congratulated him for all of his hard work. Rahn acknowledged their compliments with mixed emotions. He still wasn’t comfortable with his fellow classmates but he did enjoy doing a good job. Rahn said his goodbyes and prepared for his time in the Medical College.
The four years at the Medical College passed quickly and Rahn excelled at his classes. His reputation as an excellent study partner preceded him and he was one of the most popular students. Upon graduation, Rahn was promoted to Lieutenant JG. He was again disappointed at not finishing at the top of his class but didn't let it bother him.
