Lieutenant Commander Ithahr th'Shrannok
Name Ithahr th'Shrannok
Position Executive Officer
Rank Lieutenant Commander
|Physical Description||Tall and wiry, Ithahr is the typical Andorian build. With his antennae and his thick clamshell of silver hair, there is very little to differentiate him from other Andorians, save his violet eyes, an unusual trait. As with other Andorians, Ithahr is mostly soft-spoken, speaking in low quiet tones with most of his fellow officers. When the situation calls for it, however, he is capable of issuing his commands in a voice that brooks no opposition.
His hands are criss-crossed by fine, white scars, a reminder of his wartime service. A combination of his Andorian physiology and front-line services has led to several phaser-burn scars on his body.
Ithahr often finds himself have to incline his head or stoop to listen to his colleagues to better hear them with his antennae. These often twitch in highly-charged situations, betraying the nervous energy that courses through most Andorians.
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||As with most of his people, Ithahr's emotions run close to the surface. He feels things deeply, whether elation or despair and is seldom shy in expressing those feelings.
Ithahr, however, endeavours not to let his emotions take full flow, particularly when a subordinate has performed in a sub-par manner, having learnt that non-Andorians do not respond positively to such haranguing. It is true, though, that he will likely propose the most aggressive course of action possible in response to threats and is not a natural diplomat. The Andorian, however, has over the years taken up meditation to calm his mind and improve his ability to relate to others.
He is fiercely proud of his Andorian heritage and culture and applies that same pride to his work in Starfleet, believing people's opinions of his homeworld are dependant on his good behaviour.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||+ - Experienced - as an almost twenty year veteran of Starfleet, Ithahr has been around and has seen much. This gives him an authoritative presence and broad base of knowledge to draw upon.
-/+ - Hard Worker - Able to take orders and carry them out, Ithahr takes great pride in fulfilling his work. This can often leads to working long past his shift's end and a tendency to bury himself in work.
+ - Experience Combatant - having taken part in his fair share of ship-to-ship and face-to-face battles, Ithahr is a tried and tested combatant who is handy in a fight. It helped he was raised traditionally and was taught the intricacies of Andorian hand-to-hand combat and in the use of the Ushaan-tor.
-/+ - Mostly honest - in his personal dealings Ithahr is honest almost to a fault, embracing the Andorian mindset that it is better this way. People often do not appreciate it. In his professional work he is more circumspect, however, believing that discretion has its place in Starfleet.
-/+ - Emotional - Ithahr is an Anodrian with deep emotions, and expresses them deeply as appropriate. Although he often moderates his extremes for his colleagues, he can be blunt to the point of rudeness to those he does not regard as worthy of his time.
- - Andorian Physiology - due to their sub-muscular vascular system, Ithahr is particularly ill-equipped to deal with phaser burns. Consequently he has scars across his body as a result of his service in the Dominion War and beyond.
