Personality & Traits
General Overview Valens Aran has a fiery personality, bordering on the arrogant - Frankly, he is a smart-alec. This, combined with his attitude to his superiors, has got him in trouble more than once. However, when you get to know him, he isnít really like this at all. Nobody knows why he projects this facade on the world, and it is doubtful that anyone ever will. This is probably because hardly anyone has actually gotten to know him.
Strengths & Weaknesses Valens Aran is a brash know-it-all with a passion for power. However, what he loses in his personality, he makes up for in his immense skill, knowledge and passion for all things mechanical, electrical, structural, and computational, and it is this which has secured his position as CEO.
Ambitions Aran’s goal was previously centred on finding his father - after a freakish twist of fate they were reunited and ever since, Aran has been feeling somewhat adrift. What’s next for our hero?
Hobbies & Interests Dismantling things, and putting them back together in a more dangerous fashion.
Languages English - does not turn to other languages with ease
Born on Earth, to Status Aran and Aura Josephina. He was brought up by his mother, his father having gone missing shortly after his birth leaving only an antique hovercar and a complete carbon copy of his personality imprinted on his son, much to the dismay of his mother - Aura Josephina and Status Aran had had a fiery relationship, being engaged four times and married only twice. Aura was the daughter of of a Deuterium Synthesis magnate, and thusly Valens was brought up in a wealthy household.

Aura had not told Valens anything about his father, except that he was a brilliant physicist and engineer who had died in a hovercar accident.

He attended the best private schools in the area, and took a twin degree in Core Physics and Structural Engineering, with post-graduate courses in the fields of Fluid Dynamics, Warp Field Mechanics, Advanced Computing, Starship and Support Craft Drafting & Design, and Properties of M/AM. On top of this seven-year-course, he completed the coveted Brotherhood of Mechanics Masters and filed over seventy patents. Valens had no idea what to do with his life, so he decided to continue in the thing he loved - improving himself as a physicist and engineer, in his father’s footsteps.

However, upon completing his education, his mother finally told him the truth - his father had been a Starfleet officer, and had left her to bring him up alone. More to the point, he was probably alive.

This inspired Valens. He immediately enrolled in Starfleet Academy, to follow in his father’s footsteps.

During his course in Starfleet Academy, he did not get on well with his peers at all - he was something of a womaniser, prankster, and made a sizeable pile of latinum on the illegal tube racing circuits after dark. Despite this philandering, he managed to pass his exams with flying colours. His academy Engineering tutor Larry Garfield commended him for the post of Chief Engineering Officer onboard a frontline vessel with experimental technology - mainly to knock Valens’ arrogance down a peg or two. The Broadsword was the ideal candidate. Garfield’s plan doesn’t seem to be working, as the way Valens sees it, he’s got a lucrative first post straight out of the academy, with his own quarters, and seat on the Senior Staff conference lounge.

While on the Broadsword Aran achieved several firsts in both engineering and Starfleet history. He has submitted 47 separate patents during his service on the Broadsword so far. In addition, he is one of the pioneers in the field of Centurion technology, having acquired the rare chance to capture, reverse-engineer and reprogram one.

He was also instrumental in leading a number of away missions - most notably his first, in which he led the away team that succeeded in securing the Artefact of Corina from under the Cardassian’s noses.

After the Broadsword... who knows? The Sky’s the limit.
