Personal History Talas was born on May 21, 2373, the oldest of three children in the House of Ruhrie. Ever since he was old enough to understand, he was taught and trained as a child of nobility should be. To respect others and not cause a scene, accept his lot in life to someday take over his father's position as the official Account for the Monarch, overseeing Krios Prime's valuables and worth. He was content to learn this profession as at this time he knew nothing else.

Talas had many friends growing up, all nobles like himself. Often, Talas, his younger brother Talon and some friends would play together and as they grew older would go to parties and spend a lot of time out having fun. It was when Talas was around fifteen that he began to question why his younger sister Telisa was always at home. She was quiet and he often thought of her as shy, except when their father was absent. The same could be said of his mother. She went through her days doing the same thing everyday, never had he seen her with friends or others.

It was around the age of seventeen that Talas began to realize he didn't want to be the Government accountant. He wanted to do something else with his life and after visiting a friends and learning about Starfleet, he went to his parents, after weeks of arguing, he was fortunate that they came around to his way of thinking. Talas got a sponsor and after graduation, headed off to Starfleet and entered the Engineering program, specializing in being a communications specialist.

Talas went to the Academy and found a whole new world. He had never realized how different life could be and wanted badly to have his family leave Krios but his father would not hear of it. After he left, Talon picked up an interest to take the position within their government that Talas had turned down. Talas felt sad that they would not leave and look for a better life but he moved forward and focused on his academy years, which he excelled in the engineering program and showed a gift for his specialty of Communications. Upon Graduation, Talas was assigned to Empok Nor as his first assignment.
