|Personal History||Tirion was born on Vrykul Prime in the early hours of March 23rd, 2323 and his childhood was a relatively happy one, he grew up much loved by his family and when the time came to choose his life career. As Vrykul life for three centuries, his time was plentiful as he had time.
He had the option to go into the leadership guild or into the merchants guild, he elected to follow the path of the warrior to defend his home which was something that surprised everyone.
His early years in the military were successful before the Vrykul Sovereignty ended up in a state of war with one of their neighbors.
Fordring met the woman who would later become his wife in one of the early campaigns but as the war against the Vauxhan continued, the front lines seemed to become more static as the Vrykul was only defending themselves.
The Vauxhan created a new weapon to break the deadlock, the Heavy Neutron Bomb which when detonated on or near the surface of a planet emitted a massive magnetic pulse which shattered everything on the one hemisphere of the planet while it also emitted a massive radiation pulse which killed everything on the entire planet.
After this weapon was used on three of the Vrykul's colony worlds, the Vrykul marshaled their entire reserve battlefleet and went for the throat of the enemy, quite literally, they then destroyed everything orbiting the Vauxhan homeworld before they glassed the entire planet, killing over four billion people.
Tirion was commanding the portion of the fleet that was clearing the Orbital defenses for the assault fleet to glass the planet. He didn't agree with it but he did not oppose it. It was something his companion, Galiaan bitterly disagreed with as she saw it as organized murder.
This one action left the remnants of the Vauxhan race as homeless refugees, scattering to settle on a dozen of their colony worlds while their leadership or what remained of it surrendered.
The Vrykul accepted their surrender and absorbed the Vauxhan nation into their own before they began repairing the damage both sides had done in their ten-year long war.
It was around this point that Galiaan Nerris announced that she was pregnant with their first child, in response he proposed, she accepted and they were married two weeks after the end of the war.
It was around this time that the Vrykul had their first encounter with a Federation Starship, named the USS Excelsior, second of her name.
As the Vrykul could only gaze almost mesmerized at her gracefulness and her sheer beauty, many wondered if these new aliens had come to offer peace or make war.
The Vrykul Leadership was immensely pleased to learn that these new arrivals intended peaceful coexistence and thus relations between the Federation and the Vrykul were always good. Both nations learned much from the other and the Vrykul relaxed the conditions with which their three conquered species were forced to endure and in the end the Tolerion's, the Habassan's and lastly the Vauxhan's were all resettled on a planet each to live as they saw fit, however the first two species had good relations with their conquerors and the last, however, did not as they had lost their homeworld due to glassing.
What they did not know was that the Vrykul military was working to restore the Vauxhan homeworld back to its pristine glory when the time came for its unveiling, the issues were resolved, tensions between the various nations were calmed and the Vauxhan then accepted their place as part of the Vrykul Nation.
Meanwhile Tirion and his wife along with their first couple of children departed Vrykul controlled space to spend time in the Federation, they along with several dozen others were sent to learn more about the Federation and when the time came, to return and teach their brethren about the Federation.
Tirion enlisted as Galiaan went off to the academy, he wouldn't see his wife again except on leaves he would take while his wife took up a posting at the academy where she taught to medical students before she earned a commission much later, thanks to her work.
Tirion found he greatly enjoyed building and maintaining ships, his career in Starfleet would reflect this, from the Musashi until she was decommissioned and scrapped to his service on the Enterprise for most of her life. His time at the Antares Fleet Yards and earlier the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards solidified his reputation as a dependable Engineer who could repair and breathe new life into anything that was damaged, broken or outright destroyed, his service across his Starfleet career showcased his skills as an engineer time and time again.
In early 2392 he was offered two postings, one of them was to the USS Roanoke-A and the second was to a starbase, he chose the Starbase posting, his wife, and their two new infant children went with him as he had no respect for the Roanoke name.
