Personality & Traits

General Overview Though largely reclusive and dedicated to his work, Sesenek comes across as quietly affable, and has a compassionate bedside manner. During leave, he is known to disappear for long periods of time without telling anyone where he is going, although he never reports in late. It has been suggested that he is probably holed up in a library somewhere.

Prior to the attack on Beloti IV, Sesenek had been confident, unconventional, and outspoken. Little evidence of this former personality remains.
Strengths & Weaknesses Sesenek is highly risk-averse. It was also noted during his Starfleet training that he has difficulty trusting others. He has a tendency to withdraw from social interaction for no apparent reason. His Starfleet psychological assessment notes a lurking self-destructive streak, and places him in a high-risk group for developing orthorexia or related disorders. However, he is compassionate, patient and measured, with a cultivated attitude of acceptance toward life as a whole.
Hobbies & Interests Sesenek runs, trains regularly in defensive martial arts, and has been known to cook on occasion. His primary focus, however, is on his work. It could be said that his hobby is not having hobbies.

Personal History Sesenek was born on Vulcan, but emigrated to Beloti IV with his wife several years after graduating from medical school, where he specialized in endocrinology with a minor in pharmacological medicine. In 2335, they married a Cardassian refugee named Harjil, a laypriest of the Oralian Way, who would eventually father Sesenek's stepson and unborn stepdaughter.

He worked as a civilian endocrinologist until 2351, when the Cardassian military launched an attack on the outpost - perhaps provoked, or even enabled, by the Oralian refugees living amongst its population. His spouses and children perished in the conflict, and Sesenek sustained significant mistreatment at the hands of Cardassian troops before Federation forces prevailed.

Sesenek returned to Vulcan, alone, and worked as a hospital consultant until 2359, when he left to join Starfleet. His career in the Academy was largely unremarkable, with the exception of one minor demerit for attending a social gathering at which hallucinogenic substances were used. He served aboard the USS Cariad as a cadet and was assigned to the USS Boston following his graduation.

Prior to the attack, Beloti IV was home to a population of Cardassian refugees who had been driven out of the Union as a result of religious persecution. Perhaps due to this previous exposure to Cardassian culture - and despite the heavy toll he would later incur at Cardassian hands - Sesenek converted to the Oralian Way shortly after the loss of his family. Although this fact is known to Starfleet, Sesenek does not generally discuss his religious practices with others.
