Description Sergeni possesses the same towering height and physical prowess that is as much the Vulnian physical signature as a Vulcan’s ears or a Klingon’s cranial ridges might be. Due to his dense bone and muscle structure his weight is far greater than that of a human’s, giving him his natural superiority of strength and agility over his human ’cousins’.

His chest, face, back and legs are covered from blade, claw and energy weapon scars along with faded Vulnian military tattoos.

Whenever Sergeni hears anything between an affectionate comment, a friendly welcome or a lewd suggestion from that certain someone he often gives a smirk, letting those around him know he’s rather interested and pleased with what’s being said. On the flip side however he will cross his arms and scowl if the opposite occurs.
Personality & Traits
General Overview Like most Traxian Vulnians, Sergeni has an animosity towards aliens but grudgingly accepts their use and the need for diversity on a ship that travels within different alien territories. A stickler for rules and punctuality, he is a firm believer and relentless avatar for the face of discipline. Where he might think a ship’s captain may lead with inspiration Sergeni prefers to think a warrior’s as something to be respected through skill of arms. Not one for getting caught up in worrying about opinions of character, the Vulnian officer is not afraid to speak his mind even if such opinions are not asked for however he does know WHEN not to speak. It’s the HOW that seems to be the problem for Sergeni.

While of course caring for those who serve under and with him, he does not believe in the cliché of being half-harsh with a shimmer of lax attitude to the crew. Sergeni instead adopts an ’all or nothing’ policy and prefers to treat everyone with the same cold approach apart from those he can truly trust. Of course he does have a tendency to get highly excited or restless.

He is, in short, a closed door.
Strengths & Weaknesses If his age is any indication, Sergeni has just under five centuries of battlefield experience within both the Vulnian Guardsmen Corps and the Royal Vulnian Naval Fleet. Both the cultural warrior training with blade wielding and hand-to-hand martial arts coupled with the rigorous military grilling process of the Vulnian Imperial Military that makes Starfleet training look like a day camp. Unlike officers within Starfleet, Sergeni has never been taught to hold back when it came to taking lives and thus is completely dedicated to the job at hand. He doesnt take pleasure in killing, but the act doesnt phase him.

Like most Vulnians he has no real connectivity with members of other races or cultures. His people dont often mingle with other species as a rule of thumb given their negative connotations with alien species. Given the sudden introduction and drive for exploration and diplomacy within the Empire, Sergeni finds himself on unfamiliar ground as an exchange officer with a more peace-orientated organisation than he is used to.
Ambitions While promotion to be in command of his own ship is of course at the forefront of Sergeni’s mind he lacks any political ambition to make it happen. Instead he’d prefer to serve the remainder of his service before retiring with as many fond memories as possible before leading a quieter, simpler life.
Hobbies & Interests Being in space often gives you more time on your hands than you’d think and Sergeni hates nothing more than letting time be whittled away when much more constructive things could be done. As such Sergeni has developed a love of physical sports especially the Vulnian martial arts where stress of duty can be taken out on another crew member’s face or a punching bag. Of course he does like to flex his intellectual muscles and enjoys reading classical literature along with a strong drink.
Languages Vulnian, Federation Basic
Born on the ice planet of Traxis within the Vulnian Empire to a wealthy and influential family of Lords, Sergeni was taught from an early age about the duties to his fellow Vulnians. Apart from his obvious state-given education in one of the finest academies within the Empire his extra circulant activities included target practice and swordsmanship. When he was fourteen years old it was an important time for the Vulnian because he, like all Vulnians of that age were considered adults. Sergeni could drink, be married to another Vulnian and more importantly; serve in the Imperial military. Now along side his primary and secondary education he would train to become an officer of the Royal Vulnian Guardsman Corps; the ground fighting branch of the Vulnian Empire’s military forces.

At the age of sixteen he graduated from Officer Academy to command a platoon of infantry from the 27th Regiment of Foot; Royal Traxian Fusiliers. Within weeks of getting his post, Sergeni was deployed to fight in the 11th Kzinti-Vulnian War fighting beside and leading men and women decades, even centuries older than him. The war took decades to end and helped forge Sergeni into the warrior he long dreamt of being as well as his skills as an effective leader. It wouldn’t be long before he would have to serve in the next three wars against the vicious and brutal Kzinti warriors, wars that would leave him both mentally and physically scarred.

When the 13th war against the Kzinti was finally at an end Sergeni felt that his role within the Empire’s military was somewhat outdated. Placing a transfer request for the Royal Vulnian Naval Fleet, a request that was denied given the sudden incursion from marauding Orion forces which had managed to wrestle a minor colony from the local militia forces. Forced to fight to defend his home once more in a conflict that lasted over half a century, Sergeni found himself on the front line once more. Any further transfer requests were impossible given the new alien threat that had suddenly cropped up with the Kzinti now apparently gone.

Sergeni’s transfer papers would be accepted in the mid 22nd century, forcing him to undergo full Naval Officer Academy along with Naval Guardsmen training to turn him from solider to sailor for the Empire. Rather than fight on planets, Sergeni would board Breen warships to capture them as prizes for the Empire in the Breen-Vulnian conflict of 2187

This cycle of duty would continune until the early 25th century in which the Vulnian heavy cruiser that had chased down a Cardassian Galor-class vessel. Now a pawn in a game of diplomacy with the Federation, Sergeni was ordered to become an ’exchange’ officer on board a Federation vessel in the hopes that when the Vulnian Empire did finally commit to full war activities.
