Personality & Traits

General Overview Korotayev is naturally inclined to observant character and assessing a situation before taking any steps. He’s quick in reading the room and taking an approach, which leads to a desired outcome, a skill naturally possessed and further honed and nurtured by his grandfather.

He weighs all options and follows breadcrumbs, rather than taking a hot headed approach typical for Romulans. In his younger years he tended to be more radical and aggressive, a heritage of his mother.
He has a talent for languages but never followed that route, learning only a few, which were of interest or necessity to him.

He often chooses his approach to people according to what seems comfortable for them, allowing him to do assessment of their character and ultimately set the playboard.

Medical Record

Injuries - Vaccinated against common diseases
- Classified injury sustained during a mission
Mental Health - Stable personality, attends mandatory mental health check evaluations
- Being of Human and Romulan descent, he went through cosmetic surgeries as a child to appear completely human at first sight. This decision of his parents left no permanent marks on his mental state and he naturally fluctuates between the two different cultural mindsets

Personal History Born to a family of Thorsten and Nahal Tarr, a linguist and a historian, he was raised traveling the galaxy, often staying with his grandparents for longer periods of time. This created a sense of periods of stability and adventure, allowing Korotayev to appreciate different cultures as well as create childhood friendships necessary for his social skills and development.

Being born with a fenotype closer to a human, his parents decided for minor cosmetic surgeries, which gave Korotayev a clearly human appearance. Even though the decision was hard, they did not want their child to suffer distrust and xenophobia living primarily amongst Federation space and went with Terran name as well. Outside with his friends he was a human child, at home his academic parents raised him bilingual with both heritages in mind, unaware that they were preparing him for his future work.

Erik Tarr recognized the potential for languages in his grandson and through creative games taught him the basics of several, deeming it a useful asset for his future life. His grandmother Vesna, taught herself to prepare food tasteful for the child and discovered her passion for cooking. To this day, Vesna sends her grandson new recipes which he may find pleasant for his taste buds.

Korotayev was mainly home schooled in his younger years, attending a school during his late teens to experience environments occupied mainly by his peers. This opened new horizonts for him and sparked a rebellious era of his life. When choosing a career for himself he applied for Military University in Sevastopol, to spite his humanitarian oriented father. Their relationship improved during the upcoming years, however he is mainly communicating with his mother when calling home.

During his University years he was an excellent student, showing great potential for work in the Reconnaissance and Intelligence field. His bilingual nature and familiarity with Romulan society and customs put him on a radar early on.

After graduation he was assigned to USS Masaryk, a diplomatic ship under Captain Radek Belina, where he spent the first years of his service in an environment familiar from his childhood as an Intelligence Officer in the rank of Captain.

To further his career he transferred to USS Zatopek, where he assumed a position of Infiltration Specialist. Here he went through cosmetic surgeries to alter his physical appearance to Romulan and focused on fine tuning his ability to blend in with Romulans. Aboard this ship he lived through the news of the perishing of his ancestral planet and witnessed the Romulan Star Empire tumble down.

Being torn to pieces and lacking proper channels through which intelligence could be gained, his skills were put to use and during 2390 - 2396 participated in covert operations and sheep dips within the fragmented Empire. He was promoted to the rank of Major in 2392.

During his last mission, he was hurt and a closest biobed would reveal his not completely Romulan DNA. The mission was aborted and Korotayev extracted by a small shuttle, where he was put into a field cryo-stasis chamber and transferred to the closest ship, USS Merlin.
